Flame Shock is one of the three Shock spells available to Shaman. This is considered the most mana-efficient shock, owing to the higher total damage when the DoT is added.

Tips and tactics

Refreshing Flame Shock early will overwrite the DoT, causing you to lose any remaining periodic damage of the previous Flame Shock.

Like all DoT spells, Flame Shock can be used to prevent rogues from stealthing during combat.

This spell scales very poorly with Spell Damage, and usually is not worth using outside of PvP combat.
