How to Gem your Elemental Shaman

Sunday, November 8, 2009 | posted in | 6 comments

So you have started to fill out your gear with nice shinny epics with a bunch of gem slots all over them.  Now you need to have your local jewel crafter make some gems to fill them in but what gems do you use?  No problem the Tavern is going to break down how to gem your Elemental Shaman to help you climb up those dps charts. 


The first thing you should pay attention to is what stats you need to work on first.  Remember for Elementals if goes Hit-->SP-->Haste-->Crit.  If you are not hit capped you will need to use is Rigid King's Amber or Veiled Ametrine.  If you need a refresher on Hit Cap you can read my post

Once you are hit capped which should be really easy with the Tier sets you can concentrate on Spell Power.  Due to some of the recent changes to our mechanics and the levels of haste we are able to achieve spell power and haste have gotten really close in terms of dps.  What I recommend is a mixture of Runed Cardinal Rubies and Reckless Amertines to fill out the rest of the gem slots.

It is important to remember your Meta Gem Slot needs to be filled out with a Chaotic Skyflare Diamond and this gem requires you to use at least 2 blue gems.  I use Glowing Dreadstones since a little extra stamina never hurts.  The best way to use the blue gems is to find pieces that will give you set bonuses by placing them along a red gem for example.  An item like Nobundo's Hauberk of Triumph  would be a good place to use a blue gem.

While gemming your gear you should try to complete as many socket bonuses as you can but do not use another gem than the ones listed above if you are trying to maximize your dps and they provide just that.  As always I try to keep these posts short and sweet without a ton of theorycrafting behind them, we can do that through the comment system.
