WoW Classic Shaman Leveling Guide Talent Build

We recommend using this Talent Build for Leveling Up a Shaman Class from 1-60 in WoW Classic patch 1.12. You can open with Chain Lighting, Lighting Shield and other spells, then continue to kite mobs with Eearthbind Totems. The best part is this class can self heal and this is very important for levelling up. One of the more annoying this about playing a Shaman is the Totem Class Quests are they can be time-consuming and are required just to use certain Totems.


Strength and Weaknesses

Below we list some of the Pros and Cons / Strength and Weakness of Leveling the Shaman Class in general. As long as you have the Totems needed to kite such the EarthBnind Totem kiting mobs to level should be no trouble.

  • Strength – Rather Easy 1-60 Leveling.
  • Strength – Good for both PVP and PVE Content.
  • Strength – Has self-sustain abilities.
  • Weakness – Has to wear Leather Armor early on before Mail Armor is available.
