Frost Resistance Totem is a Fire totem, and thus cannot be used at the same time as another fire totem. Like all shaman totems it only has 5 hit points and is easily targeted and destroyed.

The frost resistance granted by the totem stacks with any frost resistance gained from gear. It does however not stack with the resistance from a paladin's Frost Resistance Aura or a Druid's Mark of the Wild.

The totem can greatly reduce the damage taken while fighting against casters that rely heavily on Frost magic, or on fights with a lot of frost damage, such as Sapphiron.

Tips and tactics

In PvE, this totem is primarily used during the Sapphiron and Kel'Thuzad encounters. It sees little use elsewhere, however.

In PvP, this totem is situationally useful when fighting against Frost Mages.
