This plays much better than trap assasin. You don't need to bother with a clunky long cooldown skill to do any significant damage, all you need is to spawn three basic elemental totems close to eachother. No stupid CD's, the only spam-prohibiting factor is high mana cost but that can be sorted out by specing into energy and mana regeneration rate.

Anyone else feel the change to Stormeye seems for the worse? Sure it does a nova now but it seems to have terrible range. Combined with the fewer (albeit more powerful) fireballs from Fireheart, moving targets at even a moderate distance get away scott free. It feels like I have to warp all my totems on top of each mob to do get a good kill speed. NM Baal was an absolute pain because of this.

Deathlord is just 1-pointer skill, or is it worth to invest more points in it?

Deathlord is kind of pointless. I'm assuming we should put all of our stats into Energy (unless we need STR and DEX for items, but still not sure 5 skills is worth, since we will have charms and gear to do that).

Unless you're thinking of Death Ward, then I would say put leftover points into that depending on how high % you can get of avoiding damage.

Stormeye sucks. Old stormeye is much better.

I'm not smaxing any totem atm. I'm currently at:

10p Frostclaw
1p Stormeye
20p Fireheart

Max Mastery
Max Soulbond
Max Embalming
Max Jinn
1p Talon's Hold
Remaining Death Ward

I did check and it was confirmed that Jinn actually double dips with its aura, the aura applies to you, gets transferred to your totems and then applies to your totems, meaning the effect is double if both are in range

How close to each other do the totems need to be to get the bonus from soulbond? Does anybody know?
