Very underated build, it doesn't do everything but it does deliver in the boss section for my part, for inarius and astrogha i respecced to malice until i had near perfect items and then back to totems.

There's not many bosses besides those 2 it can't do, again most builds have to respec to do them all.

Honestly I can do astro deathless like 95% of the time with frostclaws. Basically you'll teleport next to him with only 3 frostclaw, 1 of each other totem, and a single jinn. Run immediately to avoid the possible orb, and get the hell out of dodge before statues get tossed and you get cursed. Exit/re-enter the zone through either a town portal or the entrance to reset his AI; rinse and repeat, just make sure you can tele to him without him seeing you.

It aint too bad.

Iron golem early on isn't that durable, so he might get mobbed and vanish. Fire golems too. Just make your totems tank everything instead of minions, they're the ones with avoid & big life.

ty, the build seems strong af, but there's no way to spam blink/warp, right? jitan has 10sec CD, and pax 4sec... but mobs die much faster XD

for example, now im having fun with a cold druid, harbinger spam teleporting everywhere is so much fun. but its TOO MUCH spam of teleport. and i thought totems and blinking around would be cool but it would be better a faster blink XD

i dont really like bend the shadows, precasting a totem first is kinda.........suboptimal XD.
whats book of kalan? i thought that was a paladin item.

. Former is the void charm.

Also can just summon jinns and BTS towards them too. It's what I do, and you quickly get the mechanical rotation down.

I thought Jinn aura affects enemy, not actually a buff to yourself?


Jinn's aura grants you elemental pierce. When you start a game, summon him first. This time you get 35ish pierce from him and then you summon totem, your totem will inherit your current pierce and more 35ish pierce from totem. So its basically double. When i play totem few patches ago its already confirmed from Marco and some ppl who is good at mechanics.

TLDR: its actually x2 pierce bonus to your totem. Sorry for my shitty English and this is why I dont make any guide but about Totemancer Frank did a wonderful guide already <3

You dont and shoudnt re-summon totem for BtS. You always re-summon Jinn and use BtS in it.
