Thunderstorm is a shaman ability learned at level 10 for those with the elemental specialization. It restores mana to the shaman and deals an AoE blast of lightning to all enemies within range while knocking them back and slowing their movement speed. It is usable while stunned.

Uses

  • It is a self defense mechanism that helps the elemental shaman push melee attackers away and also damage them a bit in the process.
  • It is an instant mana restorative ability should the shaman encounter mana problems in long fights.
  • It is one of the very few abilities in the game that has a knockback effect; this effect can be very useful in many situations in PvP (and select PvE Situations) because it can be used to push an enemy player off cliffs or higher elevated places resulting in fatal fall damage unless the opponent has some countermeasure to save themselves. Notable examples are the lifts in Thunder Bluff, the Lumber Mill in Arathi Basin, the zeppelin from Orgrimmar to Thunder Bluff, or the Meeting Stone for Naxxramas. The flag spawn point in Eye of the Storm is perhaps the best place to use this ability in the game. Due to the layout of the area, a well timed Thunderstorm can easily kill crowds of enemy players and prevent the flag from being picked up.

Patch changes

  • Wrath-Logo-Small Patch 3.0.3 (04-Nov-2008): Mana gain has been increased to 8%.
                Was 5%.
  • Bc icon/Wrath-Logo-Small Patch 3.0.2 (14-Oct-2008): Added.
