Stormstrike is a level 26 Enhancement shaman attack that strikes an enemy with both weapons, dealing a total of 1260% physical damage with the main-hand and off-hand weapons.


Tips and tactics

  • Stormstrike is not considered a spell, meaning you can still use it even while silenced.
  • Because Stormstrike deal damage based on the damage range of the equipped weapons regardless of their speed, an enhancement shaman should have always have the slowest possible weapons equipped.
