Shaman [Grounding Totem]

#1 » Post by Toxic Reaper » 03 Aug 2013 19:20

Summons an Air Totem with 5 health at the feet of the caster that will redirect one harmful spell cast on a nearby party member to itself, destroying the totem. Will not redirect area of effect spells. Lasts 45 sec.

Should ground a number of spells
From mages - Everything. (Except AoE)
From Warlocks - Everything (Except AoE)
From DKs - Strangulate, DC, Death Grip, Mind Freeze(cant remeber if works on freeze)
From Paladins - Hammer of Justice (Does not ground Judgements)
From Priests - All Spells (Except AoE)
From Druids - All balance spells, Cyclone included (Except AoE)
From Shamans - Everything, Hex and Shear included
From Hunters - Hunter's Mark, Freezing Trap

Certain spells ignore totem such as poly/hex.
Certain spells hit and totem doesn't get consumed such as hoj.
If two spells are cast almost at the same time, they will both go to the grounding totem if he hasnt been destroyed yet(example: frostbolt followed by a insta ffb due to brainfreeze).

I can't clearly see which part is working and which part is bugged?

Not sure if you're saying the spells listed as well as "everything" don't or do get grounded, but I can say that;
Hunters - (Spider Pet) Web, Freezing Trap as well as Freezing Arrow get grounded.
Paladins - HoJ and Rep both get grounded.
Warlocks - Corruption, All Curses, Haunt, UA, Immolate, Incinerate, Chaos Bolt, Shadowburn, Death Coil, Fear and Soul Fire all get grounded.

Edit: Freezing Arrow doesn't get grounded, lol... Used to be bugged, then fixed, now bugged again. GG

Okay so from what I saw, while grounding is active, the player can get polymorfed, hexed and repented (ret pala). BUT, there is a OP part of this grounding bug:

If, for example, I stun the shaman (HoJ), this gets absorbed by grounding totem. After the stun transfered to totem, the totem isn`t destroyed. While the totem is still under the stun effect the player is no longer guarded by grounding totem. After the stun on the totem fades, the player receives again the totem protection. I'm saying that some spells don't destroy the grounding totem after he absorbed a spell into it but it gets disabled till the cc fades and then it reactivates again, protecting the shaman which doesn't have to recall the grounding totem.

^ Forgot about growl. Supposed to get grounded but doesn't. http://www.arenajunkies.com/topic/29598 ... ing-totem/

Also what Justice said. Some spells don't destroy grounding totem, instead they just get absorbed by it and causes the grounding totem buff on the shaman/party members to go away for ~6 sec (whatever the icd on grounding is) and then 'reset', putting the buff back on ready to ground another spell.

Grounding totem also likes Fear a lot. Sometimes it takes the fear and starts running like a chicken. Sadly it doesnt disappear after and can ground one more spell

This bug still exists and is annoying as fuck.
A single totem grounded 3 cyclones.

Sure, but don't forget about the other part of the bug... That it doesn't ground HEX, POLYMORPH, REPENTANCE, AT ALL. Several tryhard Mages so far have indirectly abused this on me by casting CS for the silence effect then casting Polymorph... Can't Shear, & when I drop Grounding, it doesn't do a damned thing.

yes I'm pist, fix grounding totem plS
