Magma Totem is an Enhancement shaman totem ability. It causes AoE fire damage. It is one of the Shaman's two AoE attacks, doing it as a DoT instead of a single burst.

Tips and tactics

  • This totem is particularly useful in PvP against stealthed rogues. Damage from a Magma Totem pulse will bring a rogue out of stealth.
  • Useless against high Fire resistant players/mobs.
  • When combined with [Fire Nova], it is a highly effective AoE in trash fights during raids, putting the Shaman on par with mages and other AoE heavy classes.
