Tips and tactics
- Stormstrike is not considered a spell, meaning you can still use it even while silenced.
- Because Stormstrike deal damage based on the damage range of the equipped weapons regardless of their speed, an enhancement shaman should have always have the slowest possible weapons equipped.
