Elemental Shamans and Patch 3.3

Thursday, October 8, 2009 | posted in , | 20 comments



Update: Changes to Tier 10 set bonus and relic.  Included video of Fire Nova in action. One of the WoW websites I check multiple times per day is MMO Champion they are hard at work again breaking down the next patch and I love their work. Not only do the recap all the Blue's post but they data mine all the information hidden in the next patch and let us know about them. With their help I am going to keep updating all of the Elemental Shaman changes coming in the next patch in one convenient place so you can keep coming back to this post without going through a bunch of posts to find the Elemental changes. Bookmark this page for easy access and leave a comment to let the rest of us know how you feel about the new patch 3.3.


Tier 10 Set Bonuses


Tier 10 Elemental 2 Piece Bonus - Your Lightning Bolt and Chain Lightning spells reduce the remaining cooldown on your Elemental Mastery talent by 2 sec. (Old - Your Lightning Bolt spell reduces the remaining cooldown on your Elemental Mastery talent by 1 sec.)


Tier 10 Elemental 4 piece Bonus - The cooldown on your Lava Burst ability is reduced by 1.5 sec.

 Spell/Talent Changes


Elemental Mastery: This talent now increases spell haste by 15% instead of critical strike chance while active.

Reincarnation: The cooldown on this spell has been lowered from 60 minutes down to 30 minutes (Improved Reincarnation will continue to lower the cooldown by 7/15 minutes).


Fire Nova Totem: This totem has been replaced with a new spell, Fire Nova, which is available at the same ranks as the old Fire Nova Totem. Existing characters will automatically learn this new spell in place of the totem. With a Fire Totem active, shamans will be able to use Fire Nova (fire magic) to emit the same area-of-effect damage as the old Fire Nova Totem from the active Fire Totem, not consuming the totem in the process. Fire Nova will activate a 1.5-second global cooldown when used and has a 10-second spell cooldown. The caster must be within 30 yards of the totem to use this ability, but does not need to be within line of sight of the totem.

Improved Fire Nova Totem: Renamed Improved Fire Nova. This talent now provides an additional 10/20% damage to the spell and reduces the cooldown by 2/4 seconds

Fire Nova - now Causes the shaman's active Fire totem to emit a wave of flames, inflicting 893 to 997 Fire damage to enemies within 10 yards of the totem.

Elemental Reach now affects Fire Nova.

Improved Fire Nova - now Increases the damage done by your Fire Nova by 20% and reduces the cooldown by 2/4 sec.

Chain Lightning, Lightning Bolt, Earth Shock, Flame Shock, Searing Totem, Frost Shock, Stoneclaw Totem, Magma Totem had the mana cost of their lower ranks reduced.

Earth Elemental Totem: The cooldown for this totem has been reduced from 20 minutes to 10 minutes. Cannot be used in Arenas.

Fire Elemental Totem: The cooldown for this totem has been reduced from 20 minutes to 10 minutes. Cannot be used in Arenas.



Race Changes


Orc, Dwarf and Troll shamans now have their own unique totem art.


Dwarf Totems

About the T10 4 piece bonus, I am pretty sure Blizard meant to say it reduces the Lava Burst Cool down by 1.5 secs not 15 secs. Since the cool down is only 6 secs. But it should be a nice dps increase.

Updated to include the new 2-piece set bonus and changes to the relic.

These are both nice buffs to elemental shamans. I hope we can stop seeing the elemental community bitch about blizzard not paying attention to us because 3.2.2 and 3.3 are looking like they are trying to increase our damage. Still work to be done on the problems we are challenged with but they working on them.
