Shaman (Forums / Cataclysm Talent Calculator / Beta Skills/Talents)
Chain Heal’s effectiveness has been increased by approximately 10%.
Hex now has a PvP duration of 8 seconds.
Quote:
Purge now dispels a single effect instead of two.
Tremor Totem has been redesigned. The totem is now usable under Fear, Charm, or Sleep effects, and pulses much more rapidly, but lasts 6 seconds and has a 1-minute cooldown.

Elemental Combat
Earthquake damage has been increased by approximately 10%.

Enhancement
Flametongue Weapon damage now scales from attack power instead of spell power (for Enhancement shaman only).
Purge no longer has its mana cost reduced by Mental Quickness.

Restoration
Cleansing Waters no longer fires its heal effect twice when a shaman removes a Magic and a Curse debuff with a single cast.
Deep Healing (Mastery) has been increased to 3% per point, up from 2.5%.
Greater Healing Wave mana cost has been increased by 10%; healing done has been increased by 20%.
Mana Tide Totem has been redesigned. The totem no longer multiplies the Spirit of those affected by it. It instead gives a flat amount of Spirit equal to 400% of the casting shaman’s Spirit, exclusive to short-term Spirit buffs affecting the shaman when the totem is dropped.


Dang they are changing manatide. That's going to suck. I guess that just means shamans need two spirit trinkets and the rest of us can get other things =p

I'm reading that as we're all boned for mana tide as it will no longer work with any spirit trinkets meaning you all are going to be getting about 8k spirit. yay amirite

I think your spirit buffs affect it (So popping your trinket effectivly increases it for everyone else). Just means Shammies in fights that are mana intensve will want to trinkets with spirit buffs so they can maximize the gain of other people from mana tide.

In short: You get boned and have to use 2 spirit enhancing trinkets, other healers are now free to pick what they like XD

It's that last little line that kinda confuses me, the part about it being exclusive to short term spirit effects, now if it works like im understanding it, it will only give out 400% of my spirit from gear (~2k), but if it does infact work they way we all want it to, it will give out 400% of my spirit when i cast the totem, so somewhere around 22k, anyway as it stands i already use a on use and proc spirit trinket, if the change is the former I switch to ones that benefit my regen more statically, if it is the latter nothing changes except all of the healers dont need to worry about their core anymore and can use 2 totally different trinkets

Yea I needed to read it a couple times, it's wrded a bit oddly. But i think you have the grasp. If you cast it without aything popped it 400% of your base spirit. If you pop a trinket and then cast it, it's 400% of what ever you spirit is at that time.

Is this only on proc trinkets? Or all trinkets? (ie: does DMC spirit work with mana tide?) What about static spirit on trinkets? ie: rainsong?

And what about spirit weapon proc?

I think short term spirit buffs means any procs and non permenent or flask spirit additions.
