Elemental Shaman - Damn it feels good to be a gangsta

Latest Edit: 12/4/2019

After leveling a Mag’har Orc shaman from 1-110 for the heritage armor I benched this guy for a while and got into other things. Picked it back up for the 15th Anniversary (easy leveling during Alterac Valley) and pow 120.

Dusting off the cobwebs running some dungeons, mythics, questing, etc… this is what he has been using. It coincides (perty much) with Icy-Veins single/AOE talents and build for their Raiding and Mythic+ content.

Firing @50MS - As per the usual experiment with what works for you and your latency.



Uses Modifier Keys

:: if you cant use modifier keys well your doing something wrong and you haven’t figured out how to turn off your modifier keys in your “keybinds” section of WOW ::

/castsequence [mod:shift] Totem Mastery, Earth Shield
/cast [mod:alt] Fire Elemental
/cast [mod:ctrl] Earth Elemental

Two Macros First - Single Target - Second - AOE

Both very very simple Priority based macro 2 minor differences being chain lightning replaces lightning bolt as well as earthquake replacing earth shock for ST and AOE versions.

Remember: Earth Quake can only be macro’d on a [@cursor] so when firing off the AOE macro put your mouse cursor where you want him/her to cast Earthquake.

Also: It will put Flame Shock one time on a target … and then attempt to do it again when you select another target (cool down pending of course) - there really isn’t any other good way to handle the constant uptime for Flame Shock. It does it once then your gonna have to put it on again yourself.

First One Single Target ::


Second Macro AOE



I did not put in any racial abilites such as the Mag’har Orc “Ancestral Call” or any the Troll’s or Orcs whatever. To add those just input it in the Sequence part of your macro like:

/cast [nochanneling, combat] Ancestral Call (or whatever your racial ability is)

or if you want more control then replace one of the [mod] with it.

No parses yet because his ilvl is waaay to low for Mythic+ or Raids yet …


Forgot to add:

the AOE macro will cast Earthquake where your cursor is pointed at … /cast [@cursor] Earthquake

so make sure your mouse is on the enemy …

Thany you, nice vídeo and sound :slight_smile:

noob question, why is the first talent different on the ST and the AOE versions?

Thank you so much!! This is the first shaman macro that has got anywhere close to sim numbers!!

just how close ? I didn’t sim nor test this macro at all … this was what was created as I leveled up …

its not - chalk it up to laziness for not double checking

Hi Would you be so nice and would tell me where I get the Elvui profiel?

within a 1000 and once or twice over the sim when procs got super lucky. great job on the macro i was about to give up on getting a macro that worked really well for the shaman class

Don’t know how I missed this. Can’t wait to give it a try.

had a long time wish leveling a shaman. and now im actually going to do it!
to make it a bit harder ill be tarting on a new server, no heirloom and not allowed to die before level 60 (except for bg’s then)

also another question: is that weakaura’s in the center between the unitframes? and of so can you share it plz it looks ace

Nice and tight. This is probably one of the best Macro Builds I have used for my Shaman in Ele.

Is that a WeakAura center screen between the unit frames? Mind sharing? Looks pretty awesome.

It this



Sweet, thanks

Any logs?

Very awesome! Using this to level 110-120!

I have been doing rather well with this macro. I am not sure how it parses yet but I am hoping to get to raid with it soon. I am only 388 so maybe a normal in the coming week. So far really fun! Thank you for all your hard work

ilvl 391

Normal Champions

ilvl parse 55
dmg parse: 51

raidbots sim on patchwork: 21379dps

I found the macro locked up a few times where my character just looked like he was having a seizure. That caused a loss in dps which ultimately contributed to the avg parse. To get out of it I hit a manual ability like a totem or something not useful for the fight.


its prolly the trinkets - take them off auto-fire

Damn, love the video. Mozart would be rolling in his grave, though, lol. FYI this is Lacrimosa from his Requiem Mass (mass for the dead), which makes the music choice all the more cooler.

Haven’t started using this macro yet, but just rolled a Dark Iron Dwarf and will be trying this from the start. Will let you know how it goes.
