A trouble with totems!

Post by Yihn'Ra on Tue Dec 31, 2013 1:54 pm

Now, when I'm sure I'll play totemancer as my 1st char on TSW, I want to ask you to clarify me some things about spell totems and how they work:
1) if I buff myself with Burning Veil and place totems, will the bonus %damage persist for totems even after BV's buff ends? (same goes about demonblood aura)
2) do they benefit from BV cast on them (apart from necro himself)?
3) do totems benefit from +summoned minions' stats?
Thanks in advance!

1 + 2) yes, thats the old double dip coming into effect, totem spell damage is based of yours, so any buffs that boost it stick when you summon totems, shadow aura and BV can then also be applied to the totems themselves boosting damage further.
3)No, they have huge life anyways

to clarify upper thread, when you first summon a totem, it will leech your current spelldmg / enr / enrfactor / pierce values. upon that they will receive any extra buff you give them, so it's pretty much doubled.

1. I am not sure if it locks in at the time of summoning or whether it is an at time of firing thing. Arc is probably right, The Big Ouchy would know. *casts summon Ouchy*
2. Yes
3. No. This you could have found in the LFAQ

Edit. Marco might know something about it too. lol.

So, it's useless to spam BV constantly on myself after I've done the summoning, right?

This. Get yourself some o skills and don't be lazy just standing around letting your totems and reanimates have all the full. I find Devouring Cloud to be a nice complentry skill even if it is buggy.
