Ya if u look you'll see that totems like SoE and tremor that were previously at 40yd range are now back down to 30. I don't see this as huge (tremor at 40 was really nice) I didn't see anything on the patch notes about it, did anyone else?

Q u o t e:
They were 30 yrds before path 3.0.8 went out. The reason why they are 30 and not 40 is because of the hotfix they implemented because some shamans were gaining the benefits of totemic focus even though the talent no longer exists. My belief is the patch 3.0.2 radius buff to totems is just excluding totems that are base 30 yrds and only affecting 20 yrd radius totems.


Keep in mind that it is true that there were some abilities that weren't properly unlearned when respeccing- http://forums.worldofwarcraft.com/thread.html?topicId=14274447372&sid=1

Totemic Focus was indeed one of these so it may be true that some players may not have noticed this effect before and are now noticing the difference.

If this is more than just the change from the hotfix, please feel free to report it so we can look into it more for you.

Q u o t e:


EDIT: Also first in after a blue. Wait... a blue on the shaman forums!?
I must have eaten a bad protein bar up at work. I'm hallucinating.


Maybe if you lie down for a bit, you'll feel better and it will go away. ;)

Q u o t e:
Of course there's a blue in here. We just got a patch with a whole lot of 'love' in it. That's when the Blues swing by... kind of like a deadbeat dad on your birthday.

Sure... the rest of the year he may sit on the couch in his stained undershirt, drinking beer and complaining about your Mom's new boyfriends... but that ONE magical day he shows up, freshly shaved, not smelling of liquor, with a present in hand.

Granted it's usually a present bought in the "toys" section of the drug store, where he stopped to fill his Valtrex prescription on his way to the party.

..... I AM THE KING OF METAPHOR!!!!


Now I'm sad. :(

Q u o t e:


Sorry, but you have to admit that the blue presence around here pre-patch was... sparse (to be polite).

Now post patch you're in here, joking around, having a good time.

Don't get me wrong, I like it! It's nice to see a blue in the Shaman forums... but to see a Blue JOKING AROUND WITH US IN THE SHAMAN FORUMS!? That's something (pleasant) that I haven't seen in a LONG time.


Oh we stop in from time to time. Things have been busy and every now and again, I like to say "hi". It doesn't mean we aren't still lurking even when you don't see us.

Q u o t e:


Err... Totemic Focus doesn't affect totem range... So I'm going to assume you meant Totemic Mastery.


It doesn't affect totem range currently. But I could be remembering some of the changes incorrectly.

I'm looking into an answer for the healing stream totem though.

Q u o t e:


Could you please look into the Elemental Mastery Bug as well?

The cooldown is not started when the buff is cast....only after the buff has expired.



Sure. I can ask.

Just as a quick follow-up, I don't have any answers on this as of yet, but when/if I get some, I'll be back to let you all know.

Good morning everyone. I just thought I'd follow-up briefly that the Healing Stream Totem should in fact be 30 yards instead of 20 and is a bug. Also the Elemental Mastery is also currently bugged and the cooldown is not starting at the correct time. The cooldown should in fact be starting at the time it's cast. Both of these are anticipated to be fixed with an upcoming patch.
