Minor Glyphs:

Glyph of Renewed Life

3. Gems

Gems can change based on your build, equipment and caps, but here are the best gems.

Meta: Relentless Earthsiege Diamond

Red: Bright Cardinal Ruby

Blue: Nightmare Tear (1 for meta)

Yellow: Quick King's Amber

4. Professions

In WoTLK all professions are balanced, but the most useful professions for the Enhancement Shaman are:

• Jewelry – must need. 3 stones that give +117 stat of you need.

• Blacksmithing - sockets for gloves and bracers.

5. Equipment Enchants

There are many enchants that can be used only while you have specific professions, so you can manage what you need, but here is a very popular enchant build.

Head: Arcanum of Torment

Shoulder: Greater Inscription of the Axe

Back: Enchant Cloak - Greater Speed

Chest: Enchant Chest - Powerful Stats

Bracers: Enchant Bracers - Greater Assault

Gloves: Enchant Gloves - Crusher or Enchant Gloves - Precision

Waist: Eternal Belt Buckle

Legs: Icescale Leg Armor

Boots: Enchant Boots - Icewalker or Enchant Boots - Greater Assault

6. Weapons Enchants

Here is the best enchant for weapons:

Enchant Weapon - Berserking

7. Rotation

Enhs don't have such rotation, you need to control debuffs and procs of your spells. Everything happens situational.

You should be dual wielding, it’s much higher DPS.

Windfury Weapon should be on your main-hand and Flametongue Weapon on your off-hand.

Enhance has a very complicated rotation, but you get used to it after a while.

Maelstrom Weapon (5 stacks) → Lightning Bolt → Magma Totem → Maelstrom Weapon → Stormstrike → Lava Lash → Flame Shock → Earth Shock → Fire Nova

Keep the Stormstrike debuff up on the target all the time.

Refresh Lightning Shield at 1 to 3 stacks.

Fire Nova when everything else is on cooldown.

8. DPS Stat Priority

Here are the main stats that you need.

• Hit - 8% minimum for melee, 13-14% for range and spells.

• Expertise - 6.5% (26 points)

• Attack power/Haste - more - better.

• Critical Strike - you can get it from equipment, min 50%

• Armor penetration - Not the most important stat, if you can get it without any problem for other stats - get it.
