    I'd like to introduce you all to my latest project, SentryTotem. This is completely separate from TotemSpot, and I will of course still be managing the site here, but Sentry Totem is a new endeavor that I hope some of you will also find useful (and perhaps it can bring a bit more attention to TotemSpot, as well). In fact, some of the names you're familiar with here will also be posting on Sentry Totem - Purge, Binkenstein, and Chillbros, to name a few.

    Sentry Totem is a World of Warcraft community news and advice site! Newly launched in 2014, Sentry Totem offers the latest Warcraft news coverage, guides, opinions, and more. We may be the newest, but we aim to be the biggest and best player-run news site!

    We also offer something totally unique – the opportunity to get help from players at the very top of their game! Get one-on-one advice from raiders in guilds like Blood Legion, Midwinter, Duality, Pure, Something Wicked, Defenestrate, and more, as well as some of the top class theorycrafters! Odds are good that you’ve read their guides, so why not go directly to them for help? The best part is, this is completely FREE for you! Why should you have to pay to be better at a game?
    So, check it out. Of course, you'll always still be able to ask questions and get advice here, and the guides will still be here, first. ...

    Sometime in the coming weeks, FinalBoss.tv will be doing an elemental shaman episode, tentatively featuring yours truly and *hopefully* Leeds. While I don't know what questions will be asked, you can bet that the mastery/haste issue will probably come up. Should be an interesting episode! I'll post here when I know the date.

    If you're not familiar with FinalBoss, it is a web series produced by Bay of and Anafielle of . The show airs on Twitch every Sunday at 1pm PST: http://www.twitch.tv/finalbosstv or on their website http://finalboss.tv/. The show features raiders from various guilds, usually with a focus on a different class each week, but also covers world first kills and the like early in the progression race. ...

    Hi everyone!

    I'm sure at least some of you have noticed issues with logging in, particularly if you needed to reset your password. The hosting service has been having some server issues that have caused a few problems for the site, but they are working on fixing the problem and it should be resolved soon. I apologize for any inconvenience!

    Reference post for a bunch of formulae I've worked out recently, which should make calculating stuff a bit easier.

    6.0 patch notes

    Nothing too interesting in this build (so far?). They changed echo of the elements to apply to "Frost Shock" rather than just "Shocks,"

    So Storm Ele is affected by Primal Ele, which is interesting- they'll have to monitor that interaction really closely, because I can see lots of balance

    No reason to think that yet. Elemental's fire elemental is incredibly weak, while enhancement's is incredibly strong. Even if they did something crazy

    FET isnt that big of a dmg source for Elemental since a few patches. For Enhancers its like #1 during burst with double the dmg of #2.
