Flame Shock is one of the three shock spells available to Elemental shamans, and the only one available to Restoration. Because the DoT component can critically strike any shaman can increase the effectiveness of this spell through Spell crit.

Tips and tactics

  • Refreshing the DoT may cause you to lose a few periodic damage ticks.
  • Like all DoT spells, Flame Shock can be used to prevent rogues from using [Vanish].
  • With the guaranteed critical strike aspect of [Lava Burst] when Flame Shock is active, Flame Shock + Lava Burst is a staple for Elemental shamans.
