While the current talent behavior is consistent with vanilla, Blizzard has decided to fix the bug as it was documented during vanilla and fixed in early Burning Crusade.
Has anyone done testing on Improved weapon totems not giving the 30% increased Attack power gain on everyone in the group and not just the shaman? From multiple vods and from talking to shamans. While looking at our current Attack power, only the shaman gets the bonus Attack power from improved weapon totems. While everyone else is stuck with only a 315 Attack Power gain. Which means every shaman that has spec’d into this talent is giving no benefit to any melee in their group.
I just wanted to chime in and provide a bit of context around this issue, and an update on our plans for it.
The current behavior of the Improved Weapon Totems talent actually does match 1.12 and the reference client, and this talent behaved in this way for its entire existence during original World of Warcraft. It was, however, recorded as a bug shortly after it was introduced late in 2006 and was fixed very early in Burning Crusade. Since this is a clear bug that was fixed relatively quickly in the original game, we do currently have plans to fix this (as well as several other issues that were similarly bugged in original WoW but were clearly incorrect behavior) in an update coming in the near future.
Hang in there, enhancement shamans!
