Shaman have the ability to put temporary elemental buffs on their weapons. Only one buff can be active on a weapon at any time. Dual-wielding Enhancement Shaman can put separate buffs on their Main-hand and Off-hand weapons.
A Shaman weapon buff temporarily gives a shaman's weapons additional properties for thirty minutes.
Weapon buffs can cause an additional effect to occur on successful melee attacks or can have steady effects. These effects vary greatly, from doing additional damage or healing to causing high amounts of threat or slowing the target. In addition, all weapon buffs have an "unleash" effect that is activated through using the ability. Unleashing a buff does not consume it. Enhancement shaman who are Dual Wielding will activate the effects of both weapons simultaneously. Note that although the weapon buffs are learned from Level 10 upwards, the Unleash Elements ability is only learned at level 81.
All shaman weapon buffs last for 30 minutes.
