    Storm Elemental Totem icon (anyone else bothered?)



    This is the new and updated icon in the last build. Notice anything different? I was really hoping for a cool Storm Elemental to match the others.

    It looks like they're going for this new totem style for all icons since MoP, but it makes no sense for the Elemental totems! Side-by-side it looks so underwhelming =/. It needs a big bad Storm Elemental!

    was the placeholder icon.

    This is the new, updated icon in the last build. Along with almost ALL level 100 talents for all classes.

    Make a macro for it and pick any icon you'd like, done easy.

    Maybe that was the placeholder for the placeholder?
    Joking aside, hopefully there's something better, that's just awkward in comparison to the rest.
    My shaman I guess if you want to see it or something.

    It seems silly to be bothered by UI elements that are so easy to change to your liking.

    I've searched through every single macro icon and could not find a Storm Elemental.

    Honestly, it's better than the other two. It's a totem that you summon, thus the icon should represent a totem. They should change the other two honestly, as well as any other totem spell that doesn't use a totem image, such as Magma or Earthbind.

    For your sake, I sincerely hope that's hyperbole.

    I'd be bothered by it if the Elementals weren't attached to a totem but, they aren't so meh.

    My main concern is that the new icons means the 100 talents are here to stay.

    Why? I make macros all the time to change the icon. I've searched through them all countless times

    There's just so many. I can only ever make it through a few scrolls before I give up and just pick something.

    I think the new icon is amazing. I really love the art style on that.
    Perhaps it would be better to use that for something other then SET; though IMO it would be nice if they'd overhaul most of the totem icons. The searing/earthbind/healing stream icons are all a bit outdated.

    There are many problems I see with SET and PE/SET, but icons aint one.

    Honestly, the only problem with the totem mechanic is, that there's none at all. Man, so many issues left in the dark without any proper responses from the devs. With things being scrapped left and right the chances are slim that we get a functional class this expansion.

    Maybe next time... WoW X6 in 2020!

    Dunno what beta version you are playing, but in the current one there are alot of problems with the class, throughout all specs. Won't name them here, since it'd be off topic, but I think there are enough threads on this topic, just no answers from devs.

    Rehgar Earthfury in Heroes of the Storm is very fun, and definitely what I envisioned for the Shaman class in World of Warcraft; it's just sad they don't bring that over to here. Totemic Projection is baseline (he can throw totems), Lightning Shield is how it was in Warcraft 3, where you could place it on an enemy target or yourself and it would damage to the enemies per second (would be much cooler than how it is now), Chain Heal was instant but had a cooldown and Bloodlust ALSO grants movement speed. Not so much in favor of Chain Heal/Bloodlust but TP baseline, and Warcraft 3 LS would be amazing quality of life.

    Why Elementals still even require totems is far beyond me. Just clunky design that should've been fixed ages ago.
