That's... an intriguing thought. What if our spells were *sourced* from the appropriate totem, to reinforce the fact that our power are supposed to spring from the elements?I can see some problems with it, of course: highly mobile fights would require that we reposition the totems frequently (or with perhaps greater care that would be easily done on the fly), and ranges would have to be increased to allow us any mobility at all. But consider how it might look/feel if our Lava Burst erupted from the Fire totem, rather than from our hands. We might act less like mages and more like the "coordinator" of elemental activity that we're supposed to be.It's probably too tough to redesign shaman casting mechanics like this, but it would be interesting.
