Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Vitality Totem will no longer be offered for selection in Arena, since the 15th of September 2016.[1] However, it is still obtainable in Arena matches through random effects, such as Unstable Portal and Piloted Shredder.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

Since its triggered effect does not heal minions, Vitality Totem depends on attacking with the hero using weapons or Rockbiter Weapon with maximum efficiency. Doomhammer is best; its flexible Windfury can clear waves of minions as long as this totem keeps feeding your hero Health.

Guaranteed to activate at least once before it is removed, the Totem can also be a more straightforward source of healing, especially if the player has already taken substantial amounts of damage before it is played. Even without incurring further damage, if the player can shield the Totem from harm for a few turns, it can quickly restore many times its cost in Health. This makes it effective as a soft taunt. The Totem is a far weaker play if the shaman is at or near full Health, as it will be easy for the opponent to ignore it until they are ready to deal with it.
