    Default Spikey dps with shaman

    Hi everyone, fairly new player trying to level up my cleric. So far Ive gotten to lvl 37 using a shaman spec but Im finding the damage to be very spikey. I can kill a mob real fast and then the one standing next to it can take forever. Ive even noticed mobs getting down to about 20% real fast then needing another 10+ seconds to finish killing it. Im fairly sure this is caused by cooldowns but its a bit hard to stay alive when you have 2-3 mobs hitting you and your not doing any damage, combined with the lack of heals for that spec.

    Any and all suggestions would be helpful.

    For shaman damage to be effective, you need skill FROSTBITE (tier 7, middle skill).

    It makes your non-physical attacks buff your physical attacks
    Hence, you need to alternate attacks between physical and non-physical.

    Non-physical attacks have damage and some kind of elemental damage name on them,PLUS, they say taht a melee weapon is required eg :

    Icy blow (x water damage)
    Jolt (x air)
    Lightning hammer (x air)


    TL;DR 1 : non-phys attack tooltips show elemental damage + requires melee weapon

    Physical attacks just have damage on them and require melee weapon eg :

    Massive blow (x damage)
    Crushing blow (x damage)
    Combined effort (x damage) FROM DRUID TREE.

    TL;DR 2 : phys attack tooltips show only damage + requires melee weapon

    TL;DR 3 : alternate between non-phys and phys attacks.
