About TotemTimers

TotemTimers aims to help managing totems, shields, and weapon buffs, showing additional info about active totems (range, cooldowns) and provides additional totem sets. For enhancement shamans (and soon for ele/resto also) it provides additional timers displaying the cooldown of the most important spells and the number of Maelstrom Weapon stacks. TT supports ButtonFacade and rActionButtonStyler for customizing its appearance.


A big thanks to all who kept the localization of TT up-to-date. To make that easier I switched to the localization system at CurseForge. There you can find and edit missing entries more easily and you don't have to upload files anymore.


In TT the four totem timer buttons are referred to as Timers, the timer buttons for Reincarnation, shields and weapons are referred to as Trackers.

Hovering over a timer button opens a flyout menu containing buttons for all totems for that timer's element. Leftclicking a button casts that totem, rightclicking assigns that totem to the active multicast spell and to the timer button; leftclicking the timer button will then cast this totem. The assigned totem is displayed as a small icon (referred to as mini icon) in the lower right corner of the timer button. The last button of each flyout menu serves to delete a totem from the active multicast spell.

The weapon buff tracker also has a flyout menu: Leftclicking will cast a spell; rightclicking assigns it as the leftclick spell to the tracker button; shift-rightclicking assigns it as the rightclick spell to the tracker button (TT 10.1). The flyout menu contains two spell combos for enhancement shamans that can be assigned to the tracker button as leftclick only (by rightclick). Then the first leftclick on the tracker button casts Windfury Weapon, the second leftclick casts either Flametongue or Frostbrand.

Additional Totem Sets

The reincarnation (or ankh) tracker serves as an anchor for up to 8 totem sets. Rightclicking the ankh tracker saves the configuration of the active multicast spell. Leftclicking the ankh tracker opens a menu with all totem sets, each menu button displays four icons containing its saved totems. Leftclicking a menu buttons loads that set to the active multicast spell, overwriting the active totem configuration. Rightclicking a menu buttons deletes its set.

    - Removed TT-Macro, the new multicast spells do a better job
    - Removed "Recast last totem", totems are chosen by rightclick only (would be awkward to select a totem by casting it
      when you're selecting it to be cast with other totems at once)

  • #1810

    That's more likely a bug in the 64 bit Mac client than in TotemTimers, since it works fine in Mac 32 bit and Windows both 32 and 64 bit.

  • #1805

    really love this add-on, but is there any way of adding a button/timer to tell you when spirit link totem is ready to use again?

  • #1804


    I noticed that TT consumes too much CPU cycles. Would you please figure out which modules eat that much CPU?

  • #1803

    Still busted for me. I've uninstalled, reinstalled, wiped settings. When I bring up the interface options (addon tab under interface) I see Totem timers, expand the bubble/menu, see the sub menus, but ALL the submenus are blank. Anyone else seeing this?

  • #1801

    Ever since the new patch and even with the most recent update, the addon is completely broken for me. :( Even with all other addons disabled, TotemTimers isn't useable. Constant error messages and graphic bugs. Anyone else having this problem?

  • #1802


  • #1800

    I'm experiencing an issue with the enhancement cooldown timers.  Frequently they lag a second or two from the timers on my action bar.  I use OmniCC to display the timers on my action bar.  I've confirmed that the enhancement CDs through TT are wrong.  I can use a skill (such as lava lash) while TT still shows a 1-2 second cooldown.

    I'm using the latest version (as of this post) from wowace/curseforge.

  • #1797

    this version is not working when I put my wow in Portuguese-BR language, the wrath of air totem, does not appear when I put down the totems, v. 10.4.8

  • #1793


    there is still a little bug with masque.

    [1] first, the skin seems to be ok, but when i activate my totems it everytime switchs to [2] but it have to look like [3]


    i tested it with different skins. everytime the same problem.

  • #1792

    Works great.. just one thing i've noticed, in the latest "fixed timer" version, I only see the timer below my weapon buffs for the Main Hand weapon.

  • #1799


  • #1794

    Same problem, I only have one timer under my weapon buff icon.

  • #1791

    Thanks for this awesome addon, Xianghar.


    It has kept me afloat playing my Shammy for years now. Never even saw something comparable to it in the recent years. Thanks. :)

  • #1790

    The timer and timer bar issue (which the missing Flame Shock timer is part of) is fixed in 10.4.7, the curse packager just didn't update yet.
