Classes: The Shaman

Shamen - primitive power. The only magic using class of the barbarians, ogres and trolls, shamen get a variety of spells that combine aspects of most of the other magic using classes. This combination, along with the racial strength, means the class can be played in a variety of different ways.

What is the best way to develop and play your shaman? What spells and skills are the most and least useful? Can a shaman be soloed, and if so how? How should you play your shaman in a group?

Post your strategies on how to best play and develop the Shaman and read, rate and comment on what others have to say.

I've heard that it is no longer based only on faction, and that there is a flag system now. I can't remember exactly where I am in the epic and was wondering if there is a command so that I can check my flags.

From everything that I remember, the 1.0 is still fully faction based. The 1.5 and 2.0 do not have any faction involved and are based on completing a series of events, and I believe that the 2.0 has to be done in order, as you can't even loot certain items until you have completed the previous step.

If you go to http://crucible.samanna.net there is a very good writeup on all of the epic needs along with posts by people that have some insights to something that might be a little tricky with them.

agree with PolarGator... i stopped doin my 1.0 due to faction issues and did the prequest for 1.5

as far as i know there are no hidden flags for the 1.0.

from what ive heard if u have the faction u can skip everything loot the childs tear from PoN and go from there to finsish it up.


For the 1.5 u need to be careful of when u do turn-ins best bet is to follow walkthorugh here on alla... ( the Wilsilk's combines are the part that can be messed up i think)

cant help on 2.0

good luck though!!

Thank you both for the reply. I think it'll be quicker to actually finish the quest (can't remember if I killed Lord Ghiosk or not) and try it that way. Plus I hate farming faction.

lol, if you followed the quest your would have max faction at the end.
only reason to work on faction is if you want to skip a part or for some reason it got messed up and yes it does happen to some peeps so glad some parts can be redone for faction.

Another real faction killer is doing any of the turn-ins while in some illusion, such as our Bear form. Be real careful and make sure that you don't have any illusions or invis on when turning in any of the parts.

Dread, Terror, and Fright are 3 day spawn times. No mob in the zone is a Ph, they have there own spawn point on top of 3 hills located throughout, careful though they have a deathtouch that goes off i think every 30sec? Except for terror i believe, best bet is to go for him. Iksar Broodling will spawn upon the death of one, kill that and loot Child's Tear. This is mqable if the item holder has there faction up with true spirit.
