Casting another [[Earth Totem]] will destroy the elemental. Elementals have a fairly large [[aggro range]] and may cause problems in instances by attacking mobs that were not otherwise in combat, much like [[Searing Totem]], although the elemental is not aggro-linked to the shaman, and when it dies the mobs will reset as long as no-one else is on their threat list. Elementals move surprisingly quickly, and use an AoE [[taunt]] ability frequently.

This is mainly a tanking minion, and is not the best for damage. On average at level 70 it does about 70 damage per attack. Earth elementals have a fair amount of health, roughly as much as the shaman does; as such, while they excel at handling mobs out in the world, elite monsters will kill them rapidly. Earth elementals deal physical damage, but as with any earth elemental, they are immune to all [[Nature]] spells and effects. This has a major significance in [[Shadow Labs]] (see Tactics)

*The Earth Elemental is a great soloing companion for harder (group) quests. Certain quests that normally require a 3 or even 4 man group can be soloed with an Earth Elemental Totem and a competent shaman. A good tactic involves constantly switching between healing the elemental, healing yourself, and dealing damage.
[[Murmur]], the final boss of Shadow Labs, will occasionally unleash a devastating charge around itself, [[Sonic Boom]], at which time all melee are advised to flee. However, if Murmur is left too long without a target in melee, it begins nuking all members of the party with [[Resonance]], a stacking debuff that also inflicts damage. Earth Elementals are immune to the effects of Sonic Boom, and will be in melee range, thus preventing Resonance attacks. Murmur's hits are physical, however, so the elemental will not live very long without heals or until the [[tank]] returns.
 
 
The Earth Elemental can be useful in certain raids, such as during [[Zul'jin]]'s "Eagle phase" - the Elemental is immune to the Nature damage from the tornadoes, and will keep doing damage for its entire duration. It can also be used to great effect against the [[Aqueous Spawn]] in the [[Black Temple]]'s sewer area.

Earth Elemental Totem is a core shaman ability learned at level 58. It allows the shaman to summon an earth elemental for protection.

Notes

  • Casting another Earth Totem will destroy the elemental.
  • Elementals have a fairly large aggro range and may cause problems in instances by attacking mobs that were not otherwise in combat, much like Searing Totem. The elemental is not aggro-linked to the shaman, and when it dies the mobs will reset as long as no one else is on their threat list. Elementals move surprisingly quickly, and use an AoE taunt ability frequently.
  • This is mainly a tanking minion and is not the best for damage.
  • Earth elementals have a fair amount of health, roughly as much as the shaman; as such, while they excel at handling mobs out in the world, elite monsters will kill them rapidly.
  • Earth elementals deal physical damage, but as with any earth elemental, they are immune to all Nature spells and effects.
  • In instances, the primary use for Earth Elementals is to serve as an emergency aggro magnet. Their AoE taunt will almost always gain the attention of any mob that is affected by it - while monsters focus their attacks on the elemental, they are gathered up for another player, preferably the tank, to deal with.

  • The Earth Elemental is a great soloing companion for harder (group) quests. Certain quests that normally require a 3 or even 4 man group can be soloed with an Earth Elemental Totem and a competent shaman. A good tactic involves constantly switching between healing the elemental, healing yourself, and dealing damage.

Patch changes

  • Wrath-Logo-Small Patch 3.3.0 (08-Dec-2009): The cooldown for this totem has been reduced from 20 minutes to 10 minutes. Cannot be used in Arenas.
  • Wrath-Logo-Small Patch 3.1.0 (14-Apr-2009): The summoned Earth Elemental should now have significantly more health and slightly more armor. Now scales up in power based on the shaman's spell power instead of attack power.
