1. Talent Tree

PVE Elemental Shaman Talent Tree, WoW WotLK 3.3.5a

4 Talents marked with blue are replaceable.

Spend those 4 talent points depending on the raid, your gear, and the encounter. Sometimes you need to instantly go into the Spirit Wolf form to avoid damage. Sometimes, when you can get hit by AoE damage it's best to take Elemental Warding. Improved Fire Nova is taken more when you have BiS gear, for maximizing your damage.

3. Gems

Gems are situational and depend on the build and equipment. They are used to reach the required stat caps.


Chaotic Skyflare Diamond


Runed Cardinal Ruby


Potent Ametrine


Glowing Dreadstone

Also if you lack Hit rating or Haste, use these
Veiled Ametrine & Reckless Ametrine

5. Gameplay & Rotations

Main rotation:

Flame Shock > Lava Burst > Elemental Mastery > Lightning Bolt
Everything else is used when cooldown goes off. If needed, use also Chain Lightning
Don't forget to place needed totems in the right spot for maximum efficiency.
