    Default shaman stats and skill guide for tanking/bosshunting

    ok so many ppl have asked how I can tank so well on a shaman so here is the guide

    for a 110 shaman

    ok first of all get your shaman some nice gear boss rings and Boss amulet
    then buy a nice Vampire robe to fill subagames pockets

    high aged gear is not that important as I'm using 105 subs all +11 (I will upgrade just cant afford to age at the moment)


    ok so now you have your gear so lets look at stats

    Strength you need enough to use your Gauntlets roughly 75-85
    Spirit you need enough to use your Robe roughly 271-282
    Talent you need enough to use your Phantom roughly 81-86
    Agility you need enough to use your Boots roughly 80-85
    Health is were you put everything else

    and now skills

    as shaman has very little attacking skills he relies heavily on his ability to TANK EVERY ATTACKING MOB and allow others to not even need to use HP pots

    T1 skills
    1st lv1
    2nd lv1
    3rd you can level if you want to it just slows mobs down useful but not needed if you want to use the points some were else
    4th lv10

    T2 skills
    1st lv1
    2nd lv1
    3rd lv10 main Taunting skill basically all mobs in range will ONLY attack YOU no one else this skill does have a delay but use it as frequent as you can to capture as many mobs in range as possible then just run so they cant hit you then wait till your party starts to level you up or kill the Boss
    4th lv1

    T3 skills
    1st lv10 adds 13 abs what's not to like
    2nd lv1
    3rd lv1 ok skill but time taken to cast and gain the HP from mobs allows them to kill you easy so kind of useless
    4th lv10 now this skill has a stupidly long animation making it absolutely useless add to the stupidly long animation the skill deals poor damage compared to other classes

    T4 skills
    1st lv1 this is a pet sweet pet too but not enough points to use it and all the other cool T4 and T5 skills
    2nd lv1
    3rd lv10 main BUFF skill gives some classes boosted attack speed on some skills (however this skill does not actually work effectively on shamans as they have stupid long animations )
    4th lv1

    T5 skills
    1st lv1 adds stamina and mana Kind of lame skill but had to add some crappy ones I guess
    2nd lv1 nice skill but has a 3-4 sec delay so needs to be combined with other skills to be effective but there just isn't enough points
    3rd lv1 nice skill but has a 5-7 sec delay so needs to be combined with other skills to be effective but there just isn't enough points
    4th lv10 this skill ads 32% HP this will keep you alive wile you Taunt all the mobs and Bosses


    now this is just one build of many possible as stated this will allow you to tank a lot but also its not just about TANKING as you use Taunt skill then run so you actually don't take much in the way of hits just run use Chasing Hunt and then run till next cast

    who knows maybe in the future shamans will get some skill animation fixes but for now he is what he is and enjoy him

    feel free to add if I have missed anything or if you discover something I have not seen as I do not play shaman as my main character (I wish he was 123 but I made my choice many years ago)

    Thanks Bruce! I will try to play Shaman and Prs next Titan Event and see how that goes.
    The write-up definitely helps Bruce! Good Job!

    just a thought, I know this guide is for boss hunting/tanker shaman builds, but just an alternative for skills in case anyone wants to do something slightly different. Since the 4th T1 skill only adds mp and the shaman already has a decent amount over 1000, I would suggest investing points in spiritual flare first (T2 skill 1), since it's an AOE and can be useful for training. amount of MP won't affect how well you tank anyway. Just a thought =)

    it will make no difference you wont use that much mana anyway as all the skills are slower than the regen

    I got Soul Menacla lvl10 for unlimited stun in 5sec duration and 5sec cooldown time. Try it to do duo Valento and you'll be afk while someone killing val.
