Grounding Totem for Ice Lance against Hagara

12 posts in this topic

I don't have much time for raiding these days and I was wondering if anyone could confirm that spell_nature_groundingtotem.jpgGrounding Totem no longer works for soaking inv_jewelcrafting_icediamond_02.jpgIce Lance.

Thank you guys!

I'm not sure if it does or if it ever did.

My wife plays an Enhance Shammy and when we'd raid i'd here a steady stream of "GODDAMN TOTEM ISNT WORKING!" when Ice Lance would pop up.

I don't think it does, but I'll ask my guild on wednesday during the raid.

I don't think it would matter either way since it would only absorb one of the Ice Lances, correct? And since absorbing only one would be mostly pointless, why bother even trying to use it? If anything, see if it absorbs Hagara's Shattering Ice.

Funtip: If you have a DK, he can steal Shattering Ice and do 200k per cast with it. Not bad for a global.

You are probably right... sadly our shammy was a no show however we did have a rather nice raid. Only had one druid as well, often we end up taking three...

I think it does work.

our shamy dropped his totem on monday night while we were dying a lot..

i ran past the grounding totem and it seemed to have taken about 3 shots of ice lance before i ran past it again.

No point in getting with this totem, as it deflects just 1 lance !

"...will redirect one harmful spell cast on a nearby party member to itself..."

I have an enhance and a resto shammy. I put one on each group and ask them both to put down the totems on the last shattering (right after the last Focused Assault), that is the dangerous one, the other ones are not a concern.

The totem is party wide, not raid wide. If both my shamans put their totems down, the shattering will be redirected. We never tried to redirect Ice Lance, since its not a problem for us.

inv_jewelcrafting_icediamond_02.jpgIce Lance used to be entirely absorbed by spell_nature_groundingtotem.jpgGrounding Totem, which was pretty convenient (but not necessarily an important damage reduction).

      Hey guys,
      I'm wondering if anyone knows which items would make up a look-alike set for what Hagara is wearing. In case you don't know, maybe we can consolidate information in this thread.
      Here's a picture

      Currently we are progressing (somewhat) on hagara, and as a guild who's gear/skill level/ability to not stand in stuff isn't as high as some others we like to use slightly odd tactics.
      During the lightning phase instead of having 4 groups of 2 (ten man) we go with 2 groups of 2 and have everyone else hide in the middle just before the add dies & get the ranged to finish him off. The groups start at the spawn point and then go in oppoisite directions. A healer has each group as well as aoe healing the middle. Any classes that can help with group healing do. This we robbed of another guild but works really well for us as healing is easier (though over a longer period of time) and as there is only 4 people running instead of 8 there is less chance of mistakes.
      The ice phase is our current work in progress. Again instead of running round the ring we pop the first icicle down then move onto the second, stay as a group and 'dodge' the ice wall by side stepping into the center as it passes. This we haven't got quite right yet (a few people forget and run round, others can't deal with avoiding and generally panic) but we are getting there. Thoughts on this... easier to dodge or easier to run round?
