General Tips for leveling as a shaman
Here are some tips to progress quickly during your leveling as shaman in classic wow.
-Lightning Shield is your most efficient DPM (Damage Per Mana) spell and its usage should be prioritized when spending mana in bursts.
-Start building a Healing / Spirit Set Early. Keep pieces with high Intellect or Spirit that you can use when Healing or when out of combat to reduce the downtime allocated to regeneration.
-Drop your Totems in such a way that you can get value from them against multiple mobs. Replacing Totems for every single mob you kill will slow you down.
-It is a good idea for any class to keep a few pieces or even a Spirit Set in your bags and to swap with Outfitter between pulls.
-Out of your Totem Class Quests, the most frustrating is the Water Totem quest, so consider skipping it for a few levels.
-For max burst you can place a Fire Nova Totem then time your spells so it pops when the mob is in range.
-If you plan to ride for 14 seconds or longer upon finishing your 3 second mount cast time, use your mount.
