As an Elemental Shaman, our pets are surprisingly powerful cooldowns even though we aren’t considered a "pet class". Understanding vital times to use our pets' unique abilities will make a big difference in your damage output. Let's go over a few pointers and some macros to help make sense of it all.
Using the talent Повелитель изначальных стихий
gives your Элементаль бури
& Элементаль земли
a pet bar along with unique pet abilities. Mastering these abilities is beneficial to both your damage output and the utility you bring to your group. Око шторма
is pretty self explanatory, but should only be used while your pet has its own buff Призыв молнии
active for the spell's full channel duration (depending on haste value). Always make sure that the spell will be cast on a target that won’t be isolated from other mobs if in an AoE situation or if fighting against a boss consider saving it for potential cleave on the boss fight.

Тротак (Ring of Booty)Trash
On your way to the Ring of booty you will encounter more of the Кастетник из братства Чернозубых
s, Саурок из клана Соленой Чешуи
and Задира из братства Чернозубых
s, deal with their mechanics accordingly. But you will also see some new enemies, the Гарпунщик из братства Волнорезов
and Сокрушитель из братства Стальных Волн
The ring of booty is a 3 phase event similar to ring of blood quest line from the Burning Crusade's Nagrand zone. Note that the RP between each phase of the event takes a decent chunk of time so it is advised to pull mobs between events to save time.Phase One:
Catch the Pig. A greased up pig called Lightning will be tossed into the ring. It will run around randomly until caught. Click on the Pig to take a stack of grease off of it. After all 5 stacks have been removed the pig is caught and the phase ends.Phase Two:
Ludwig: Людвиг фон Тортоллен
is a simple tank and spank encounter. Players have to deal with Отскакивающий панцирь
, various turtle shells he throws out that bound around the ring. Just don't get hit by them as they deal quite a large amount of damage and throw you backwards. Keep in mind that Людвиг фон Тортоллен
scales with Укрепленный
and not Тиранический
.Phase Three: Тротак
: This is the real deal boss fight for this event. He isn't a joke for melee as he does quite a bit of damage to melee. Luckily we are not melee and we are actually one of the best classes for this fight thanks to our pure single target damage and extra movement we get thanks to extra Волна лавы
procs. Most likely you will want to Жажда крови
this fight depending on sated timer. Especially on Тиранический
so if Жажда крови
isn't up consider going to Красавчик Харлан
and come back for lust timer.
- First big thing to know about this fight as Elemental Shaman is that we can take advantage of the two Neutral Target Dummies just off to the side of the boss room. Keep Огненный шок up on these dummies for extra Волна лавы procs. You can maintain 3 very easily.
- The extra Выброс лавы will also help with added movement you will have to do if Бросок акулы has been put on you. If you have a shark chasing you run the shark through a patch of Throw Chum that’s on the ground. This will Stun the shark and allow you to get away safely. Most groups usually have the healer get chased by the sharks throughout the fight as there is normally one shark out most of the time and DPS can continue to deal damage.
- Тротак will cast Место! and charge towards the shark that has been out the longest, picking it back up and knocking and dealing damage to players within the line of the charge. He will then throw another shark out in a short while. Don’t be in between a shark and the boss at all times.
