Mana Spring Totem is a Water totem, and thus cannot be used at the same time as another water totem. Like all shaman totems it only has 5 hit points and is easily targeted and destroyed. The effect does not stack with a paladin's [Blessing of Wisdom].

Mana Spring Totem will restore the mana used to cast it within a few seconds. The longer you stay in range of the totem or the longer a fight lasts, the more valuable it becomes. Since the mana restored is per target, having more mana users in the group makes the totem increasingly more valuable.

While the amount of mana restored per tick may seem small, it quickly adds up in a group of mana users, making this a very powerful totem in long fights and raid encounters.

Tips and tactics

Since the totem's effect does not stack with a [Blessing of Wisdom], the shaman can use a different totem if there are plenty of paladin buffs, such as [Healing Stream Totem].
