PVE WotLK Elemental Shaman DPS Guide (Short)

Wrath Shaman Guide


Welcome to our PVE Elemental Shaman guide for WoW WotLK. This guide will show you what you need to know to play the Shaman class as Elemental. If you follow this build you should be at the top of the DPS chart in no time!


This is the core dps Elemental Shaman build. I’ll list some options/points below.

Ele Shaman DPS Build


Major Glyphs

Minor Glyphs


Gems can change based on your build, equipment and caps. You may need to adjust your gems to account for your gear.

If you need to gem for hit or haste then you can use: Veiled Ametrine or Reckless Ametrine.


You may need to adjust your enchants based on your gear but these are the standard enchants.

Stat Priority

  1. Hit (17%)
  2. Spell Power
  3. Haste
  4. Critical Strike
  5. Intellect

Like other casters shamans also require 17% hit, to always hit bosses. You can take the Elemental Precision talent which gives 3% hit rating. This will lower your hit rating requirement to 14%.

Spell power is your primary stat as increasing it gives you the biggest DPS boost. Don’t ignore hit cap for spell power, there is no point in having hard hitting spells that never hits.

Haste is our second strongest offensive stat. Only after you get extremely high amounts of haste does critical strike start comparing. You should gear for haste and let your critical strike increase as your gear gets better.


  1. Flame Shock 
  2. Lava Burst 
  3. Elemental Mastery
  4. Lightning Bolt

Everything else will be used when it comes off Cooldown.

Also, if there are multiple mobs then you can use Chain Lightning to increase your DPS.

Also, don’t forget to place your totems before the fight.
