Stormstrike TCG

Stormstrike is a shaman ability learned at level 26 for those with the enhancement specialization. It is an instant-cast spell that grants an instant attack with all equipped weapons and applies 15-second debuff that increases the damage of the Shaman's next four Nature spells ([Lightning Bolt], [Chain Lightning], [Lightning Shield], [Earth Shock]) that hit the target by 25%.

Modified by


  • When cast, shamans instantly launch a melee attack against the current target. Shamans' weapon enchants have a chance to proc as normal.
  • When [dual wielding], the shaman uses both weapons.
  • Stormstrike is not considered a spell, meaning it can still be used even while silenced.
  • Because Stormstrike and [Windfury Weapon] deal damage based on the damage range of the equipped weapons, an enhancement shaman should have always have the slowest possible weapons equipped.
