I couldn’t find this info searching the forums. It seems like a majority of the shaman builds rely heavily on Ice Thorns. Granted, I haven’t hit endgame with a shaman yet but I found it very tedious to keep Ice Thorns up without autocast.
Am I missing something or is autocast the accepted way to run Ice Thorns and is Ice Thorns really that strong?
Secondly, shaman seems like it’s supposed to be the totem specialist but I see few builds that rely heavily on totems. What’s the viability of doing a totem-focused build using Primal Strike to keep storm totems summoned and do those summoned totems use the storm totem skill tree? I was thinking of doing something like that along with thorn totems, leap, and another skill (not sure what yet).
