    Elemental Focus is a passive shaman ability learned at level 40 for those with the elemental specialization. It grants a Clearcasting state after any critical damage spell (fire, frost, or nature) hits a target. The Clearcasting state lasts 10 seconds, reducing the mana cost of the next two spells while increasing spell damage and single-target healing.
