With Stoneclaw Totem (Summons a Stoneclaw Totem with 1315 health) it's more like 5260 damage shielded. That's just crazy awesome in pvp. I could even see it being useful in raids that have huge raid wide damage (nothing in game at the moment, lol).I'm pretty excited about this and think it has very nice potential.[reference] Stoneclaw Totem Rank 7 6% of base ManaInstant 30 secs cooldownSummons a Stoneclaw Totem with 1315 health at the feet of the caster for 15 sec that taunts creatures within 8 yards to attack it. Enemies attacking the Stoneclaw Totem have a 50% chance to be stunned for 3 sec.

Problem is, you can't use this and have your Earthbind or Tremor Totem down at the same time.It's the same situation that arose when the devs introduced Earthen Power: To use the new ability, you have to purposefully open yourself up to being Feared or Snared.This is the Shaman 50% rule in action. Remember that Priests can use all of their major abilities when they're Bubbled. Hell, Ret can still beat the hell out of you while they're Bubbled.But Enhancement? We've gotta leave ourselves open to Fears and Snares if we want to get any use out of this ability.More proof that the developers don't play the spec in PvP. And since we don't get much from Rossi except that this "could be excellent" it seems WoW Insider's routinely misinformed Shaman columnist hasn't taken his Shaman into the BGs or arena much either. Nice job, guys.
