Primary uses

The Elemental tree turns a shaman into a devastating ranged damage dealer. In a party or raid setting they provide a damage boost to the spell casters in their party through totems and Heroism/ Bloodlust. Many people choose to wait until they reach the Outland before going elemental as there is not much gear to be found in the old world to support the spec. However, it is definitely possible to level as elemental right from the first talent point, if a little slower than it would be as enhancement.
