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 원시의 정령술사
gives your 폭풍의 정령
& 대지의 정령
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. 폭풍의 눈
is pretty self explanatory, but should only be used while your pet has its own buff 번개 소환
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.

트로삭 (Ring of Booty)Trash
On your way to the Ring of booty you will encounter more of the 검은이빨 주먹잡이
s, 항만의 시궁쥐단 소금비늘
and 검은이빨 싸움꾼
s, deal with their mechanics accordingly. But you will also see some new enemies, the 바다가름 작살사수
and 무쇠파도 분쇄자
- The 검은이빨 주먹잡이s cast 분쇄의 고함 which should be interrupted or it will silence you.
- The Scrappers cast 눈먼 분노 fixating on a random player and dealing increased damage if they reach them. This ability can be interrupted with a stun so use that 축전 토템. It can also be dispelled with 달래기.
- Watch out for the 냉기 작렬 cast by the 항만의 시궁쥐단 소금비늘, it does a lot of group damage and should be interrupted. Especially on 경화 weeks.
- The 무쇠파도 분쇄자s will cast 바위 투척 at a random player, just move out of it to avoid the heavy damage and knockback. They will also cast 지면 균열자, an AoE nuke that knocks back players and deals a ton of damage so watch out!
- The 바다가름 작살사수s can be annoying with pulled with these other mobs. Their Cast 작살 끌기 interrupts casts and pulls you to their location. This can be especially deadly if it is paired with 지면 균열자 that’s cast by the 무쇠파도 분쇄자.
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: 루드비히 폰 토르톨란
is a simple tank and spank encounter. Players have to deal with 껍질 튕기기
, 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 루드비히 폰 토르톨란
scales with 경화
and not 폭군
.Phase Three: 트로삭
: 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 용암 쇄도
procs. Most likely you will want to 피의 욕망
this fight depending on sated timer. Especially on 폭군
so if 피의 욕망
isn't up consider going to 할란 스위트
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 화염 충격 up on these dummies for extra 용암 쇄도 procs. You can maintain 3 very easily.
- The extra 용암 폭발 will also help with added movement you will have to do if 상어 던지기 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.
- 트로삭 will cast 재무장 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.
