So who else noticed that our elemental totems no longer have a collective 2min cd?Fire an earth can both be up together!

Don't earth elementals still taunt? Pretty sure you'd only want to hit that one if the boss is under 2% and all your tanks are chomping on the floor.Anyway, blizzard needs to do 3 things to make totems (and therefore shaman buffs) to be viable:1. 60 minute duration on all buff totems. (strength of earth, windfury, mana spring, flametongue, etc)2. 100 yard radius area off effect on all buff totems.3. All buff totems persist through death of the shaman, like any other buff or battle standard. Combat totems like searing or earthbind can disappear.Does that remove the uniqueness of totems? Absolutely. But Blizzard themselves "normalized" all buffs, and classes are not supposed to be brought to raids specifically for x or y buff anymore. This would simply even the playing field. It's just not right that Blessing of Might is superior to strength of earth and mana spring totem combined.

It still taunts, so can see that possibly being useful during Chimeron even if you've already popped Fire Elemental. Obviously we're not sure whether the removal of the shared cooldown is on purpose and here to stay.

Except Chim is immune to taunt on the last phase. Don't comment before you've had your morning coffee, Pewter -_-
