Nature Resistance Totem is an Air totem, and thus cannot be used at the same time as another air totem. Like all shaman totems it only has 5 hit points and is easily targeted and destroyed. When used in a raid group it will affect everyone in the raid who is in range.

The nature resistance granted by the totem stacks with any nature resistance gained from gear. It does however not stack with the resistance from a Hunter's [Aspect of the Wild] or a Druid's [Mark of the Wild].

The totem can greatly reduce the damage taken while fighting against casters that rely heavily on Nature magic, or on fights with a lot of nature damage. It also offers protection against Nature-based poisons and diseases.

Talent improvement

[Totemic Focus] reduces the casting cost of the totem by 25%. [Mental Quickness] reduces the casting cost by 6%.

Tips and tactics

In normal and heroic Slave Pens, this stacks with the Naturalist Bite buff that is obtainable shortly before fighting Quagmirran and will give the party a combined 180 nature resist.

This totem is rarely used in PvP, even when fighting Nature-based casters such as Balance Druids and Elemental Shamans, as it cannot be used at the same time as [Grounding Totem].
