Skill Functions and Interactions

Spell Totem: When Summon Skeletons is supported with Spell Totem, the totem will continue to cast Summon Skeletons even if the maximum number of skeletons has been reached. Older skeletons will then be replaced by newer skeletons, possibly moving them to another target.
