As I said in the previous post, I recently rolled a Shaman named Taugrim on the Iron Rock server.
Here’s footage of him:
- at R6 in a Khaine’s Embrace scenario
- at R11 in ORVR in Nordland
I wasn’t planning on playing a Shaman, but I tried the class and loved it. Shaman excels at both soloing and group play, which is important to me. I was also inspired by watching some of Nazgum’s videos of his Shaman in Tier 4.
I’ve tried Archmage, Rune Priest, and Shaman, and I find Shaman to be the most entertaining of those 3. The class has strong mechanics for kiting, which is a playstyle I find fun and challenging.
On a funny note, a few people on Iron Rock have asked me if I was the “real” Taugrim. One player took some convincing :)
I’ve been messing around with a shammy on Iron Rock also, a ton of fun. Once you get your cleanse, it removes WL snares, so they cannot do the lion permasnare trick, and it also removes snapshot.
I never realized how rediculous Run Away was until I got it, first time out in the lakes with it, I got jumped by a level 30 WH and it procced right away and I was able to just kite him around. Incredibly fun class.
We should to some shammy tag team roaming.

I didn’t know that re: the cleanse ability removing snares. That’s huge!
I’m planning on slotting Run Away too, it seems like a very powerful tactic.
It’s going to be a while before I catch up to you in T4.
The cleanse will remove most snares. The ones it won’t are the White Lion’s pet snare “Leg Tear” and the Shadow Warrior Snare “Takedown”. Far as I know both of those skills are bugged and can’t be broken by any ability, even though they are suppose to be breakable.
I was able to cleanse the WL snare on my shammy while fighting one solo. Have done that within the last couple days.
Very nice video. I hadn’t planned on trying out a shaman, but after seeing this video I couldn’t resist. I got him to rank 12 last night and it has been a blast. I have played an archmage to rank 16 before, but something about the shaman seems more fun to play.
Shaman has been nutty fun to play.
I’ve been roaming the RVR lakes looking for skirmishes since I hit T2. I haven’t done a single PVE quest LOL.
Yesterday I grouped with an R20 SH named Govlin, and the two of us racked up a lot of kills together.
Later, I ran around in Shadowlands, picking off Order players who were heading to Spite’s Reach. There was a higher-ranked Shaman, Oogo, also doing the same thing, and several times we bailed each other out of some tight spots.
I have a bad habit of hitting /waaagh quite a bit. The sound and animation crack me up :)
You weren’t kidding about hitting /waaagh a lot. I was in troll country last night and I saw waaaghs popping up left and right in chat from you, but it was a little later before I actually spotted you roaming around the empire t2 rvr lake. I was the little 14 shaman Zoggi who /cheer after you fought a witch hunter.
That’s hilarious :)
I /waaagh at everything. Order players, Destruction players, inanimate objects, bunnies, etc.
Just saw you outside the Order WC in Troll Country. Only problem was you and I were being chased by about 5 Order players. I tried to save you with Divine Favor + healing, but it wasn’t enough :|
I didn’t see you back there. Thanks for trying to save me:) They caught me a little by surprise. I have been hanging around their warcamp the past couple days so I guess it was just a matter of time before they finally got me. Usually I can survive long enough to make it back to the destro warcamp.
By the way, have you tried out the mod TargetRing? During the keep take of Stonetroll earlier I was reminded of how useful it is trying to rez people in keeps. It puts a ring around your target (offensive and defensive) which you can see even if the target is behind a wall, rock, etc… Useful for any class, but especially useful for healers.
I’ll have to check out TargetRing. The default target reticles are pretty subtle. Thanks for the tip!
TargetRing is a must since it works through walls and solid objects. ;)
