Fire Elemental (shaman ability)
Fire Elemental is a level 48 Elemental shaman ability.
Fire Elementals deal entirely fire based damage, and are themselves immune to fire. They have a mana bar which regenerates very slowly. They have two spells, a fire nova, that burns enemies in its radius for approximately 700 damage at 70, and a single-target Fire Blast. Because of their limited mana pool and poor regeneration, it should not be expected that the elemental cast either spell more than 4 times per summon. For the rest of its life, the elemental follows its target and punches them, dealing a varying amount of fire damage. The elemental also has a fiery aura, which burns nearby enemies for small amounts of damage every 2 seconds. Fire elementals are very fragile, and cannot survive attacks even from normal mobs. This totem is best used when all adds are dealt with.
The Fire Elemental benefits from 55% of its master's spell power.
Tips and tactics
The Fire Elemental is great for hard burns on boss fights and can often put out a fair amount of extra damage.
It is not known if either +spell power gear or Elemental passives that affect critical effects benefit the elemental. Considering the fire elemental is not benefited by any party-wide abilities, and seems to be the "pet" of the totem, it is doubtful.
