To reach this goal, it uses two mechanics at the same time: friendly fire and healing done, which should cancel eachother out -- no actual healing is done since the health is actually transferred from some players to others.
So just to clarify, do players take a dmg from it or not - guildie asked me such question in terms of using Anti-Magic Zone and theoretical situation where using AMZ and SLT together runs a huge risk of the totem with some small dmg tics destroying the Zone before the big hit hits.
Was searching badly for that over the net but couldn't find the information.
EDIT: got the source from where my guildie took it, some DK blog:
Note also that dmg taken from a shaman's "Spirit Link Totem" is absorbed by the AMZ and can break it, and so the two should not be used together.
