The Shaman Guide
Other Class Guides Druid Hunter Mage Paladin Priest Rogue Shaman Warrior Warlock


The Shaman Class is available to these Races.

Orc, Troll, and Tauren.

Blizzard's Class Description:

"Shamans are the spiritual leaders of their tribes and clans. They communicate with spirits, have visions of the future, and guide their people through the darkest of times. Many mistake their wisdom and serenity for a pacifist nature. When challenged, though, shamans have a range of powers available for dealing with threats to the natural order." Blizzard

Shadows Edge Class Description:

The Shaman will be the Hordes Buffer and Healer class. This class looks very powerful and will be a tough foe in PvP.

Class Skills

The Class skills share some similarities with the Mage, there are elemental aspects as well as Staves but the Shaman, having a slightly more melee leaning, can be skilled in in one or two handed maces and due to his ability to wear heavier armour will probably engage in slightly more melee than the Mage.

  • Defense
  • Maces
  • Spirit Combat
  • Staves
  • Unarmed
  • Fire Magic
  • Nature Magic
  • One-Handed Maces
  • Cloth
Lightning Bolt Lightning Bolt
A spell that channels the energies of nature into a fearsome electrical charge that strikes a single enemy.
Lightning Shield Lightning Shield
The reverse of the offensive bolt, generating an electrical barrier around a friendly character - damaging any that dare to attack.
Restoration Questing in World of Warcraft is bound to be dangerous, and player characters won't always be on the right side of a sharpened edge. The shaman can prove a valuable ally during these times by calling on the aid of friendly spirits to heal wounds with the Restoration spell.
Ancestral Healing Ancestral Healing
This is a downtime healing spell.
Bark Skin Bark Skin
This is an armor enhancement spell.
Blood Lust Blood Lust
This one was cast on his party members as well as himself and it increased the damage they inflicted.
Chain Lightning Chain Lightning
Probably the stronger version of Lightning Bolt which will jump between multiple targets.
Earthquake Earthquake
Not in the game right now but mentioned.  It will probably cause the ground within the area of affect to tremor and break up, inflicting physical damage.
Entangled Roots Entangled Roots
Roots erupting from beneath and entwine around the limbs of the target preventing them from moving.
Erupting Flame Erupting Flame
Fire Damage spell.
Flaming Touch Flaming Touch
Ignites a large ball of flames at the foot of the target.
Grappling Flame Grappling Flame
Fire damage spell.
Heal Heal
Healing Spell.
Icy Prison Icy Prison
This encases the target in an icy prison, it does not inflict damage, just holds them in place.
Lightning Bolt Lightning Bolt
An single electrical charge that snakes towards its foe. There will probably be a higher level Lightning skill that jumps to multiple targets.
Lightning Shield Lightning Shield
A defensive skill that erects a protective electrical barrier between the shaman and its attacker.  When attacked the barrier will administer damage to the foe.
Molten Blast Molten Blast
Some sort of direct fire skill either a short spurt of fire from the Shaman to the target to be used at reasonably close range or a projectile similar to the Mage's Fireball.
Nullify Disease Nullify Disease
No official details but perhaps purges curses from the Shaman.
Serpent Ward Serpent Ward
Totem which increases damage within its radius.
Shock Shock
Probably a lightning based skill.
Spirit Armor Spirit Armor
Another defensive buff.
Restoration Restoration
The spirits summoned with this spell will heal the Shaman and those in his party.
Ressurection Ressurection
Does what it says on the can we imagine. The Shaman will probably only be able to resurrect one character at a time with a significant cooldown applied or it would be too powerful.
Unyielding Will Unyielding Will
A buff that will probably protect the Shaman from being affected by an enemies skills.  Not necessarily elemental skills but physical skills that would slow the Shaman's attack or movement.
