Lightning Shield is a core shaman ability learned at level eight. When the shaman is attacked, it does direct damage to the attacker. It can only proc every few seconds and lasts an hour.

Modified by


  • Being an elemental shield, Lightning Shield cannot be used at the same time as [Earth Shield] (restoration) or [Water Shield]. It is however possible to use Water Shield or Lightning Shield on yourself while Earth Shield is up on another target.
  • It uses the lightning animation instead of the normal nature animation.
  • The damage caused is considered direct damage, though it cannot crit.
  • Lightning Shield is a good alternative to Water Shield for solo play or PvP, especially if mana is not a problem (either because you have enough mana anyway or because you expect fights to be quick).
