Crowd Control Totem.

Shaman
Post Limit:
I was going to post this in the other shaman cc thread,

http://us.battle.net/wow/en/forum/topic/981899064?page=1 ,

but I'd like a fresh page on one of the many new ideas I've had for enhancement shaman. I enjoy the feedback good or bad. /shrug

We don't get earths grasp which wouldn't be so bad for enhancement as far as controlling enemy mobs and players. I could definitely live with earths grasp as enhancement.

However, it seems that we won't be getting that anytime soon or ever maybe.

My new idea. Wind buffet totem.

Could use a better name but I think the idea is cool.

Dropping this totem will create a circular path of wind that disorients/dazes nearby enemies for x amount of seconds and has a x% chance to deflect incoming spells and ranged attacks.

Have it function with the same radius as solar beam.

How to fit it in?

Make insta' ghost wolf base line for all shaman and give the 15% speed increase from ancestral swiftness as a passive talent to enhancement shaman.
oh and I suggest a 2-3 minute cooldown.

Thanks Minotourus.

I think cyclone totem would work as a name.
MIND CONTROL TOTEM!!!! RAWR!!!!
I just want a Stasis Trap.

A wind totem that will explode and stun nearby enemies. Like the old Imp Fire Nova Totem talent, but a little bit stronger. :)

That would work.

Although it sounds more like a hunter ability than a shaman one.

An aoe stun is nice but it seems a little generic, not that my idea was all that original, but it's interesting in trying to fit with the shaman theme.

It was a big nerf to our pvp when they changed that talent. While it was only a 2 second Stun, it made a lot of difference for Shaman. I'd really like to see it brought back, and it's not like we have much for air utility right now.

Too true. I'm anxious for 85 and I see us doing just o.k. in BGs and fairly decent in arena with the right comp but just that extra bit of control from anything would help a lot.
