The Shaman class is the only class that can make use of
totems. These are rewarded for finishing specific quests and
are assigned by elements. You can have one totem for each
element at any one time. These totems can be used in a variety
of different ways. For example, the Earth Totem is used to help
defend the character or members of its group. The Water Totem
is mainly used for restoration while the Fire Totem is used for
battle. It is incredibly effective against enemies and easy to
use. The Air Totem can be used for defensive capabilities and
is awarded only at the high levels of the game.
It is important to note that once you drop a totem, it
cannot be picked up again. Use them with care since they are
vital to your success in this class. The picture above depicts
a troll shaman who has all four types of elementals. As you can
see, each one is surrounding by the element that it belongs
Getting to Higher Levels with the Shaman Class
The key to getting to the higher levels with this class is
using intelligent warfare. You won’t have the kind of melee
skills or battle skills that will make you a world class
warrior. It is important to accept the Shaman for what it is –
a class that focuses more on brain power and spells to achieve
its objectives. If you go in with the right attitude and the
right expectations, this can be a very fun class to play.
The use of totems is vital to your success. They are the key
to beating your enemies, especially as you progress to higher
levels. Your group is going to be able to benefit from many of
them and since the Shaman is the only class that can use a
totem, smart groups always have at least one Shaman.
You can look at this class as a great challenge to see how
well you can do in a game that is centered around high powered
fighting and spell casting when you don’t have the same kind of
abilities. Playing as a Shaman can actually make your game
better since you are forced to find new ways to accomplish the
same means. By taking the time to do this, you’re learning more
about the game and you’re figuring out ways to excel, even when
the cards are stacked against you. A lot of players like
to come back and give this class a shot, simply to see how far
they can go with one.
