Unofficial Wo rld of Warc raft Shaman Guid e IN TR O DUCTIO N hamans are the great leaders of many clans and tribes. Thi s is not because they are the masters of healing, masters of combat, or masters of great magic, but because S they can do all of it. The shaman wades into battle. . . in one hand he is throwing a bolt of lightning, with the other he is healing a friend. He then takes out his weapon and charges the near est fo e. In Wo rld of Warc raft, shamans are the “Jack of all trades.” Sham ans excel in a particular field only by giving up great utility in another. A shaman can come into the group as the healer, the fighter, the caster, or he can come in as some combination of these. Sham ans are the only “true” hybrid. W ith the time and money put into the class you can effectively fulfill most roles, at least to a point. A shaman's weakness is that they can never be the main tank. Th ey simply don't have the armor that a warrior can have. They can never cast spells more damaging than a mage can. They won't have the healing powers that a priest can. Though not as good as any one class, they can be a huge asset to a group with their totems, healing, resurrection, and damage abilities. - 7 - © www.killerguides .com All rights rese rved. Unofficial Wo rld of Warc raft Shaman Guid e PvP Servers CH AR ACTER PvP servers have the same objectives CR EATIO N throughout the Pv E world as a normal server, with the added bonus, or bane, of having elcome to Wor ld of Warc raft. I contested zones. Ma jor cites and starting am hoping you are considering areas allow players of the native faction to W playing a shaman and want all play without fea r. Once you enter a contested the inside information. Either that, or you zone you are in a perpetual state of war. In want to learn about shamans so that you can these zones you can be, and will often be, defeat them. Know thine enemy. Eithe r way, attacked by opposing faction members. this section will get you started on your When entering a zone, the zone name is journey int o the world of Aze roth. displayed on your screen. The zone name will be in one of 4 colors: Green, Re d, Ye llow, Server Types or Blue. Green zones mean friendly territory. Th ere are four different kinds of servers Re d means enemy territory. Ye llow means (Rea lms) to choose from. Picking the right contested territory. Blue means sanctuary server can make the game much more territory where no PvP can occur. Please read enjoyable. Picking the wrong one can make and understand Blizzard's rules in regards to the game bor ing and/o r frustrating. PvP realms (http://www .bl izzard.com/suppo rt/wowgm/?i d=agm0 1654p ) bef ore starting on one. N ormal Servers No rmal servers are focused on the PvE aspect of the game. It is a server where you are able to focus on killing NCPs and completing quests without problems from opposing faction players. The Pv P options can be toggled on and off, which means you can engage in world Pv P when you choose to, and ignore opposing faction players when not int erested. - 8 - Copyright Remark Added before Publishing Unofficial Wo rld of Warc raft Shaman Guid e R ole-Playing Servers Ro le-Playing (RP) servers are designed for individuals who want to be fully immersed in the world of Az eroth. Th e point of the servers is for players to role-play their character, and to take an active role in the history and lore of the game. RP servers have their own set of rules, breaking those rules can upset other players, so be sure to read them ahead of time. The rules are located here (http:/ /www.bliz zard.c om/supp ort/wowgm/?i d=agm017 25p ). RP Se rvers have some of the most dedicated and out-s poken players. H eated arguments can break out over role- playing topics and the topic of not role- playing. R P-PV P Servers RP-Pv P Se rvers are exactly what they sound like: they are servers that enforce both the PvP rules and RP rules. Th ese are some of the lowest played servers. The rule set can upset an unprepared player. These servers also cr eate som e of the str ongest ti es in game. - 9 - Copyright Remark Added before Publishing Unofficial Wo rld of Warc raft Shaman Guid e R aces Th ere are four different races that can be Shamans : Orcs, Trolls, Tauren, and Draenei with the Burn ing Crusade expansion. Without the expansion, you will be limited to the three “original” races that could be shamans, all of which are of the horde faction. Choo sing your race can be a hard choice for some players. If you wish you be an All iance shaman, your only choice is Dra enei, making it a simple choice. As for H orde, you should ultimately pick a race you enjoy. Start ing abilities have very little to do with the game further in; once you approach level 20- 25, your abilities depend more on your gear. H ere is the ability score of level 1 shamans w ith no gear, base d on rac e.

Rac ial abilities can save a player from an encounter, or they can make his time to achieve a goal that much faster. - 10 - © www.killerguides .com All rights rese rved.
