  • Being an elemental shield, Water Shield cannot be used at the same time as [Lightning Shield] or [Earth Shield]. It is possible to use Water Shield or Lightning Shield on yourself while Earth Shield is up on another target.
  • The proc cooldown is three seconds. The mana regeneration provided functions like MP5, thus is not affected by the five second rule. This regeneration stacks with all other mana-regeneration effects.
  • Since it costs no mana and provides passive regeneration, Water Shield should be up whenever you aren't using Lightning Shield or Earth Shield. It is a good practice for Elemental and Restoration shamans to make sure Water Shield is always active.
