Talk:Totem: Power Drain

The first time I fought a Defiler, I got this and one other totem effect, don't remember what it was called and I don't see it listed on the site but it slowed my run speed by 50%. It was highly annoying and inconvenient, more so was the fact that neither went away. There was no timer on them like most of these effects have. Mob totems usually disappear once you kill the mob, I can't remember for sure if this one did or not, but the effects (which I labeled "totem crud") were still lingering 15 minutes later when I had traveled (albeit slowly) to a completely different part of Moria and even zoned a couple of times.

So how do you get rid of the totem crud? Eventually I had to log off and when I came back an hour later it was gone, but I am hoping I don't have to do that every time! Rpw1066 (talk) 08:49, 6 August 2011 (EDT)

Usually, the totem goes away soon after you kill its owner, and the effect disappears when the totem vanishes.
Rarely, I have had similar stuck effects. And, like you, logged off to resolve it. I'm not sure, but I think it happens when I have a bad connection - not just slow but lossy. If it happens again, you can get a game master involved by hitting the ? icon, and creating a "New Ticket". RingTailCat (talk) 10:26, 6 August 2011 (EDT)

Thanks for the heads up on that! I have had some connection issues of late. I'll just go straight to logging off and back on next time. Rpw1066 (talk) 11:29, 6 August 2011 (EDT)
