Another day another build for the peeps. This one is one of my favorites now it works exceptionally well. I call it my Holy Fire Shaman build. It's 61sham/8Puri/7Justicar which comes with a lot of synergy. Now I'll say again yea I know it's not top dps. And I don't care it's a for fun farming build. You can use it for whatever including dungeons and pvp. I wouldn't suggest it unless you just want to do something different.

Now the reason for this build is I dislike druids. And I like even less relying on a pet to heal me. They work fine in dungeons wtc for support. But I just don't like them anywhere else. So that leaves me with shaman. A melee dps powerhouse with little to no defenses. Well until I came up with this.

I went 8 Purifier to go after a few things. Healing flare is a fast cheap spammable heal. But put that together with, Caregiver's Blessing and Sign of Wrath. You have a fast cheap heal that does more for a farming melee. Now not only does it spam heal for cheap. When something hits me they get fire to the mouth. From the nifty Sign of Wrath. And a annoying mini shield i can spam from CB. Very nice melee defensive synergy for only 8 points. Now don't forget Symbol of Torch and Glacial Shield. For a nice total of 3 shields on command you can stack to close of half health.

No it's not OP but the fact it's all quick CD's makes grinding farming more fun. Also something melee have rarely a spammable heal. That for me crits 2100k as I get stronger will just get better. Now another bonus to me which helps offset the lose of power going into the heal tree. You get wisdom of the ages no it doesn't make up for the 15% of a damage tree. But it does soften that lose a bit. With a little more crit along with the spell power.

Ok for the reason I went 7 into Justicar. I just wanted the wisdom and Stronghold. Stronghold is more health which never hurts in melee. Salvation with Glory of the Chosen makes steady healing you don't need to cast. Which both works well with the 61 point skill toggled. More you attack and faster you attack the more you heal. Combined with the purifier fun. Makes one sturdy fun Shaman to run around with. You won't be the highest dps at the ball. And I'll take slightly lowered dps for a fun Shaman. Compaired to the incredibly boring Druid's every ones sick of now. Plus not many builds you end up with 8 buffs.

It's way more fun everything works together. You can even use Light's Devotion as a spam starting to the Shamans range spam. LD hit harder with a CD and heals for a bit. That gives you convictions you can use on hammer spam too. Which also heals more because it's a life spell. Found it useful in pvp tonight chasing people when my health was suspect so much lawls. Because guys aren't used to me in melee, too much fun changing it up . Now isn't fun the point of playing a game anyway?

To wrap it up standard 61 point shaman macro's apply. Don't use any of Puri or Just in them. Unless of course you throw Light's Devotion in your range macro. Because it's a stronger opening hit. That heals as well nothing but win there.
