I have been in some discussions about the totem issue. One Idea put out into chat was a customizable Totem pole (pole has 4 slots, each one corresponding with one of the elements) then poof one GCD when you drop the totem pole. Give us one or two poles that we can customize for groups/raids/soloing.

I approve of this idea.

Are you crazy? The best solution would be to make totems instant spells so you could just macro four /cast's.

@Jack: that. Why does everyone want to make it so complicated? We don't need a special interface, we don't need some new mechanic. Just take totems off the GCD (like trinkets) and call it fixed. Anyone who wants to do anything special can use the macro system or the plethora of addons to do so.

Aesthetically, a "Totem Pole" would be cool. I think it would probably fit the description of a "wearable totem" mentioned in the Q&A.Functionally, however, I have to agree with Jack and JBluntz: The simpler, the better.

I like that idea. You can "wear" 4 totems on your back, but they have to be the 4 totems, together, that are in your "totem pole." You can drop totems individually if you want a different arrangement, but they won't travel with you, and resetting your totem pole is on a 1 hour cooldown.

I'd like it more if it was off the GCD and had a special cooldown timer for each element which was an equal length to the GCD.

Definitely don't want a totem pole. You're taking the beauty of the totem mechanic (having the ability to drop 4 awesome buffs/spells customizable to the situation at a time) and then limiting yourself to just 2 sets of those./agree with getting rid of the gcd
