@wow The problem with that though is that those healers will be going OOM a whole hell of a lot sooner than 3 minutes, which is our cooldown on the totem. Dunno how long you've been reading, but back in MC days, we had a paladin that would lay on hands, burn all of his mana and then be useless for the entire fight. Lets say healers drop all spirit relying solely on the shaman for their regen. 1 minute into fight, 2 healers go OOM. Shaman pops MTT. less than a minute into fight, healers go OOM again. 3 minutes until MTT cooldown is up, raid wipes. I just don't see it happening. Any raid leader or heal lead asking their shaman to stack spirit, while telling every other healer to ignore it is doing nothing but shooting themselves in the foot. What about if the shaman dies? Hey we're not perfect, but we can only theoretically pop once from death. And if we die again, all of that regen potential is wasted, making that shaman who stacked nothing but spirit to be a mana battery pretty useless to the raid, and neutered the other healers in the process. Gotta keep that 3 minute cooldown in mind.
