Leveling A Shaman? Make Sure You Read This First

By Mark Mananite

Interested in leveling a Shaman? Before you delve into the shaman class, its a good idea to know what exactly it is you’re in for. To quote William Shatner, the Shaman is a conduit for the ancient forces of nature.

Basically you make use of various earth based spells to attack the enemy. When you’re leveling a Shaman, you can go down the elemental tree, enhancement tree or the restoration tree. If you go down elemental, you will mostly be assaulting enemies from a distance, if you go enhancement, you will be engaging in melee and if you go restoration, well, you will be quite the healer.

One of the most important abilities of the Shaman is to summon totems that can buff you and your party, cast various status effects on the enemies or deal damage. The totem’s effect can also fall within the wind, fire, earth or air element.

Some of the other benefits of the Shaman include their ability to wear mail armor, their versatility to either play as a melee, ranged or healer class as well as the powerful buffs they have access to.

It is important to know their weaknesses though too, every class has them. For the Shamans, its that their totems can be easily destroyed, the fact that they cant use ranged weaponry and the fact that the Shaman is more of a jack-of-all-trades, not particularly an expert at any 1 task.

I think Shamans though are a lot of fun to play as. Now they may have been “nerfed” in many of the recent patches and they may be a bit weak in player vs player, however they are a lot of fun to play as and worth taking the time to level.

So now that you have an idea of what to expect, you may want to find out a bit more about leveling a Shaman, it’s therefore a good idea to have a look into a detailed guide that will cover levels 1 through 80.
