“Sticks 'n' stones'll break my bones, but Gork and Mork'll smash yer 'ead to bits if'n youdon't sod off you big bugger!”
- Gahzbag, Goblin Shaman telling off a GiantThe Shaman builds up the power of one kind of magic by using the other kind. That is, hemakes his healing better by using offensive spells. Because of this, he must learn toweave the two types of magic to get the desired results. A Shaman who focuses only ondamage will do less than a Shaman who uses both damage and healing spells.The Shaman deals elemental damage, both in direct blasts and over time, or debuff enemies to make them easier prey for the forces of Destruction. He can buff allies againstthe elements and heal them in quick bursts or in a steady trickle.I created this document to provide a bit of help to aspiring Shaman.
