Dragonflight Enhancement Shaman DPS Guide

Enhancement Shaman Overview

Enhancement is a high-intensity melee spec that requires juggling a variety of skills and effects in order to do damage quickly. Its main goal is to produce  Maelstrom Weapon  stacks, which are utilized to unleash potent spells, by using elemental-infused melee attacks like  Stormstrike Lava Lash, and  Ice Strike. It's ideal for players who prefer a close-quarters battlemage playstyle with a focus on in-the-moment decision-making based on procs combined with resource and cooldown management

  • Agility >>> Mastery >> Haste > Critical Strike = Versatility
  • Critical Strike: Chance for extra effectiveness on attacks and heals.
  • Haste: Increases attack speed, reduces the Global Cooldown and the cooldown of most of your rotational abilities.
  • Mastery: Increases the effectiveness of  Mastery: Enhanced Elements.
  • Versatility: Increases damage and healing, and reduces damage taken.

Enhancement Shaman Phials in Dragonflight

Replacing Flasks in Dragonflight, there's a number of different Phials depending on the situation that are worth considering for Enhancement Shaman in Dragonflight, depending on the content:

  •  Phial of Elemental Chaos: Generally the most consistent option without many downsides. While not the highest ceiling, will rarely let you down so is usually the best option.
  •  Phial of Tepid Versatility: More consistent (though slightly worse) version of the above with the added benefit of being much cheaper and adding a bit of damage reduction via the Versatility. Good for Mythic+.
  •  Phial of Glacial Fury: For situations where there are constantly spawning enemies or chain pulling such as Mythic+, provides a respectable amount of extra damage.
  •  Phial of Static Empowerment: Extremely niche, but in situations where you can actually stand still this is technically the best option, but those situations are relatively unrealistic.

Best Enhancement Shaman Combat Potions

There are a couple different potions that have different useful scenarios for Enhancement Shaman:

Enhancement Shaman Weapon Buffs

Unfortunately, due to the Weapon Imbues ( Flametongue Weapon and  Windfury Weapon) that Enhancement uses, it CANNOT use weapon enhancements such as runes at the same time in Dragonflight.

Pros and Cons

 Strengths Weaknesses
  • Extremely flexible damage profile with different Talent builds allowing you to customize your playstyle and cooldown loadout.
  • Excel at Single target, while also being able to specialize in 2-6 target Cleave or Funnel playstyles.
  • Access to a variety of AoE crowd control tools and a low cooldown ranged interrupt.
  • Talents provide a suite of niche tools and offensive and defensive dispelling options.
  • Good passive durability and mobility.
  • Good off-healing tools and a powerful cooldown in  Ancestral Guidance.
  •  Windfury Totem provides bonus damage to other melee players in your party.
  • Limited AoE scaling potential past 6 targets.
  • No naturally regenerating resource means uptime is extremely important to maintain the rotational flow and cooldown reduction.
  • No "immunity" defensive abilities in PvE and a long cooldown death-save effect means proactive cooldown use and self-healing is needed to survive.
  • A lot of utility tools are more niche for raids, and don't define strategies.
  • Most AoE tools are point blank and frontal, meaning you have to get up close and personal with enemies and position correctly.
  • Requires a lot of keybinds and mistakes are punishing.



Enhancement Shaman Rotations Priority

Enhancement Shaman Opener

While a lot of Enhancement's gameplay loop relies on momentum to keep itself going during combat, many of our tools are excellent to kickstart things so we can begin combat in an explosive fashion. Some talents and choices do alter the order we use things slightly though, so you can use the rotation tool here to suit your build:

  1. Pre-cast  Windfury Totem as close to the boss as possible before the pull.
  2.  Lava Lash to spread  Flame Shock if multiple targets are present.
  3.  Stormstrike to generate  Maelstrom Weapon and get it on cooldown.
  4.  Elemental Blast as soon as you reach 8+  Maelstrom Weapon.
  5. Proceed onto the normal priority list.
