Quote from World of Warcraft Classic User Manual
Shamans are the spiritual advisors of the Horde. The shaman is a versatile and flexible class that fulfills many roles in an adventuring party. While other classes are pure fighters or spellcasters, the shaman enjoys a happy medium in between. The shaman is an effective spellcaster, but can also fight extremely well with mace and staff.


Shaman Class Best Race

The Shaman Class Best Race is limited and exclusive to the Horde Faction, this leaves you will only 3 options for you to choose from. Each is strong in their own way, but we think that Tauren and Orc are at the top due to their Racial Traits. Mainly Orc as they can have both Bloodlust and Bloodfury these combine is huge buff when it comes to damaging enemies or raid bosses.

  • Best  –  Tauren,  Orc
  • Average  –   Troll
  • Weak  –
  • Not Available –  Dwarves,  Night Elf,  Undead,  Gnome,  Humans


WoW Classic Shaman Best Weapon To Use

List of WoW Classic Shaman Weapons you can use, you may have to visit your trainer to learn the ability to use these weapons.

  • Common Weapon Skills – One-Handed Maces, Staves, Unarmed
  • Advanced Weapon Skills – One-Handed Axes, Daggers, Fist Weapons
  • Armor Type You Can Use – Cloth, Leather, Shield, Mail (Level 40)


Best Profession For Shaman

The best profession for shaman class is between two options, first is Alchemy and Herbalism. Alchemy provides many useful potions for both PVP and PVE Raiding Content, on top of the constant supply and demand for this potions/elixirs. Leatherworking is another good choice, this profession allows you to craft your own gear and isn’t too bad in terms of making money either.

  • Best  –  Alchemy +  Herbalism OR  Skinning +  Leatherworking




World of Warcraft Classic Shaman Class Talent Spec


Shaman Spec Roles

The Shaman Class can fill the DPS and Healer Role effectively and even the Tank Role fairly well, being able to wield a shield and totems really helps this class tank Mobs and Bosses. When it comes to PVP DPS both Elemental and Enhancement are a strong choice.

  • DPS Shaman DPS Spec shaman_elemental Elemental, shaman_enhancement Enhancement
  • Healing Shaman Healer Spec shaman_restoration Restoration
  • Tank Shaman Tank Spec shaman_enhancement Enhancement (Semi-Tank)

Best Shaman Class Spec

The Best Shaman Class Specs is between all 3, we consider Elemental to be a strong Late Game DPS and PVP spec in Classic WoW. Restoration is another strong healing spec, and in our opinion shines the most in PVP, thanks to the totems and other useful spells. Enhancement is also really good as a melee dps, the only downside is it can be a little too gear dependent and without the right gear you will lack damage to Raid or even PVP properly.

  • Best  –  shaman_elemental Elemental, shaman_enhancement Enhancement
  • Average  – shaman_restoration Restoration
  • Weak  –
