The Grounding Totem is the Shaman's answer to spell-casters. In PVE it works in an unexpected way. Spell-casting monsters will generally attack the totem rather than let it absorb one of the spells every 10 seconds. However through repeated use you can effectively exchange a moderate amount of mana on your part to take no spell-damage. In PVP this can be quite effective against spell-casters that don't know what it does. A smart spell caster will fire a single shot of their wand at it to destroy it however, if they don't know its purpose, the grounding totem can absorb a damaging spell every 10 seconds. The Shaman can choose to drop a new totem for every spell, but in order to defeat the enemy the Shaman must do more than just defending against attacks.
