Tips

See Tremor vs. Grounding totem
  • The usefulness of this totem is specific in PvE but invaluable for those situations. It is excellent versus the corrupted druids in Wailing Caverns, since they can sleep party members.
  • Against mobs that have an AoE Fear, this totem should be placed immediately, and in a central location to the fight.
  • This totem will immediately remove any applicable ailments when it is first down, then subsequently attempt to remove fear/sleep/charm effects every 3 seconds.
  • Don't care about your choice of spells if you are fighting between obstacles. Tremor will clean the effects of fear/sleep/charm and the player won't spam the totem each time he has an obstacle.
  • Although it is excellent totem in raiding, don't forget it has its PvP uses.
