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.

So, i started a shaman, and he is level 12 and happy in CR at the moment. I am new to the shaman class and am loving it so far. On the Stromm server, there are plenty of low level people to play with.

Now, i know this might not be looked on as a good thing by some people, but i would like to twink my shaman. I am NOT buying plat or getting PL'ed, and with 10k in the bank i would prefer to go out and farm twink items with my 71 necromancer. Willing to work, you see :)
So far in the ways of twink i have an Acrylic Chainmail and Goranga Spear, which i have farmed with my necro (long run to Acrylia Caverns i tell ya). All my other gear is the chain gear you can pick up in towns and such. Any help on where i should go with my necromancer to get some non rec/req level items for my shammy is much appreciated.

Thank you all :)

Defiant armor is the way to go. It has the stats to max out sta and wis. In the 20's I think it starts covering the focuses. Good luck!

Again, I'd go for defiant weapons. They have greats stats. Don't forget to work on your epic 1.0.
