Spirit Link Totem is a shaman ability learned at level 70 for those with the Restoration specialization. It reduces damage taken by all party and raid members within 10 yards by 10%. Every second it also redistributes the health of all affected players so everyone has the same percentage of their maximum health. The totem lasts for 6 seconds.

Modified by



  • Spirit Link Totem is an air totem and thus cannot be used at the same time as another air totem.
  • Like most shaman totems, it only has 5 hit points and is easily targeted and destroyed.
  • By reducing the damage taken by all party and raid members it's an efficient totem to heal groups on 'stack-up' moments during encounters.
  • Spirit Link Totem stacks with other damage reduction spells and items.
  • It's also very useful to get the health of a tank or any single party or raid member up instantly if everyone is close enough around you since the totem redistributes the health.
