Totems were formerly shaman-specific relics. Relics replace ranged weapons for death knights, druids, paladins, and shamans, and typically give significant bonuses to a single spell rather than a general stat bonus of ranged weapons.
With 3.0.2, all Relic totems had a note saying "Counts as an Air, Earth, Fire and Water totem.", meaning one could safely deposit the items that were required to cast your totems (as in, the spells, the items you got from quests) in your bank, freeing up 4 inventory slots. This was however removed in Patch 4.0.1, making totem spells not require a totem.

These are totems that are no longer obtainable to players who do not currently have one.
