Stoneskin Totem is a totem that increases the Armor of all party and raid members within 40 yards.


Stoneskin Totem is an Earth totem, and thus cannot be used at the same time as another earth totem. Like most shaman totems it only has 5 hit points and is easily targeted and destroyed.

The bonus armor does not stack with a Paladin's [Devotion Aura].

At level 85, Stoneskin Totem grants an additional 4076 Armor.

Tips and tactics

The bonus armor from Stoneskin Totem will reduce the damage taken by a tank in a group, increasing his survivability and reducing the amount of healing required.
