Guide for Ele Shamans :d ad originally found



Earthgrab Totem will root the DPS blobs in place, allowing more time for your Hybrids to heal the friendly blobs.

The Fallen Protectors

Use Ancestral Guidance when your raid stacks up for Sun's Desperate Measures phase to help the healers. Works especially well if you can cleave adds with Chain Lightning.


Since all DPS on adds transfers to the boss, cleave down little adds as fast as possible. You have no damage reduction on the adds.
Try to delay Heroism until just after a Blind Hatred is finished to reduce movement as much as possible.


Sha of Pride

You can use Glyph of Shamanistic Rage to self-dispel the stacking debuff on Phase 1 but only do so when you have Gift of the Titans.
**Some people are saying you don't need Gift to use sham rage as it doesn't corrupt you. Will test this next time we are there**


(Heroic) You might find that you have higher DPS killing the add packs rather than guarding the doors on this fight, thanks to your cleave.
A good suggestion might be to save your Ascendance until the second wave of adds, so that the Shaman gets burned down relatively quickly.

Use Ancestral Guidance during the burn phase at the end - the raid damage is high and the healers will appreciate the help when you use it cleverly. The same goes for Healing Tide Totem
It's been reported that Glyph of Grounding Totem will allow damage to be reflected from Fire Arrows, so glyph for this to use regularly.

Iron Juggernaut

If you're soaking Crawler Mine Blast you should consider making a macro to swap to a shield - the damage is Physical and can be mitigated by armour.
Use Shamanistic Rage and Stone Bulwark Totem together when soaking the Crawler Mine Blast - you should be able to do this very regularly.

Kor'kron Dark Shaman


General Nazgrim



Use Shamanistic Rage to self-dispel yourself in the second phase. This will help the healers a lot.
Astral Shift will let you soak the void zones without losing your shield in Phase 1.
Use Ancestral Guidance on the pull with your cooldowns to help stack up a massive shield on the raid.

Spoils of Pandaria


Thok the Bloodthirsty

Primal Elementalist can help sustain damage on Thok late in Phase 1 when you are finding it hard to cast spells.
It's been suggested that Glyph of Fire Elemental Totem will help, since you could get your Fire Elemental up pretty much every time Phase 1 is up.

Siegecrafter Blackfuse


Paragons of the Klaxxi


Garrosh Hellscream

On transition phases, Ancestral Guidance and Healing Tide Totem (used consecutively) can keep the raid up without your healers having to use cooldowns.
