Aye, Fan of knives would've been a better thing to fix then totem stomping for sure.
Totemstomping in its old form was stupid, hunters/DKs/locks could macro the /petattack [target=every totem name] commands to their DPS attacks or Fear and negate a class-defining aspect of Shaman with no thought. That's nowhere near an important part of the Warlock class, and I can't understand how some of you called that skill. Even with the change, it's not like whenever a shaman has Tremor Totem down they're totally immune to Fear--I can't count the number of times I've been feared out of range between ticks or, even more frustrating than pet totemgobbling macros, been feared then had a priest/lock melee the Tremor that was right beside me before it ticks.
Tl;dr: Right-clicking totems is too hard for Warlocks that claim pet auto-eating totems was a very important aspect of their class. Blizzard succeeds in their attempt to make pet classes think before they negate a class-defining aspect of Shaman, change is working as intended so far.
Edit: For the record, Fan of Knives is stupid.
