Shamans are a strange class. One of the most versatile classes in EverQuest, they can do a bit of everything, from melee to all manner of casting. Shamans are not as equipped as some other classes at striking their enemies directly, but they are far more effective in wearing them down with disease, poison and other debilitating effects. Shamans are also more effective than Druids at buffing themselves and others through quickness/alacrity, ability buffs and utility enhancements. They can also melee better than any other priest class.

Spells are the stock-in-trade of a Shaman. Without them, the Shaman is little more than meat for any monster. Acquire spells as soon as you can, and as often as you can, no matter how inconvenient it may seem. The “save money, buy spell, save money” cycle may seem repetitive, but when your spellbook is full and monsters topple before you, you will realize the value of this strategy.

The most important spells to a Shaman are those that focus on defense. Spells that heal or buff stats and attributes are the Shaman’s forté. Keep a good number of buffing spells memorized, especially in a party. They can make a big difference when cast on an already tough Warrior. Do not, however, neglect the healing spells, which should also be a priority for you in group-based combat. Shamans are most widely sought for their healing, and secondly for their modifying spells. Concentrate on both, but remember that the best-healing Shaman is the most useful.

In addition to defense, Shamans receive a few offensive spells. These spells are nice supplements to group combat, but are most often cast in small parties or while soloing a monster. In a large party, the offensive spells are mostly a waste of mana. Leave the major spell damage to the pure casting classes. They can deal much more damage, and your skills are better concentrated on preparation and healing, where you excel.

Armor and weapons are tempting prospects, but they are usually only secondary tools. Spells are the strength of a wise Shaman, and they should be used with great care. Focus largely upon your spells, and you will be able to overcome most obstacles that stand in your way.

Creation Guide

It is important to make good decisions on Race, Starting Stats, and Religion. These things combined will allow you to create the Shaman that makes you most happy.

Choosing Race

Barbarian

Barbarians make great Shamans, due to the fact that they are liked among the majority of races throughout Norrath. This allows them to travel freely once they reach a certain level. They have well-balanced stats, and a decent amount of wisdom. They can also wear medium and large sized armor. Barbarians will level faster than any other Shaman race.

Ogre

Ogres are the middlemen of the Shaman class. They have the second lowest Wisdom, and are hated in most cities. They do have the ability to see in the dark, as well as having by far the highest Strength and Stamina among Shamans. This gives them a greater weight allowance and maximum hit points. Additionally, Ogres have an innate immunity to stunning blows from the front.

Troll

Trolls do make good Shamans, but they are held back by a couple of factors. They have the lowest Wisdom of all the races that can be a Shaman, and they are hated by many throughout Norrath. The upside is they have the ability to see in the dark very well, as well as enhanced regeneration--twice the speed of standard regeneration. Trolls will also level more slowly than Ogres.

Starting Statistics

Race STR DEX AGI STA INT WIS CHA Bonus
Barbarian 103 70 82 100 60 80 60 30
Ogre 130 70 70 127 60 77 42 30
Troll 108 75 83 114 52 70 45 30

Religion

Barbarians must follow The Tribunal, Ogres follow Rallos Zek, and Trolls get a choice between Innoruuk and Cazic-Thule. Trolls who choose to follow Innoruuk will be able to quest for the Regent Symbol of Innoruuk which gives them a low level snare effect.

Skills

Specialization

You have two real choices — Alteration (which includes immobilization, haste, slowing, DoT, and most attribute buffing and debuffing spells) and Conjuration (most attack spells). Alteration is a pretty safe bet, but if you tend to attack more than you buff, then Conjuration is worth considering.
