Strategy[edit | edit source]

Lava burst is a staple of many strong shaman decks, affording high damage for relatively low cost. It is commonly used as a powerful removal option, or better yet a strong finisher.

Lore[edit | edit source]

From Wowpedia:

Lava Burst is an Elemental shaman's highest hitting spell, due to it having a 100% crit chance as well as dealing 50% more damage if the Flame Shock DoT is on the enemy. It is on a 8 sec cooldown, thus causing shaman DPS rotations to be governed by cooldowns and priorities.
