    to Ancestral Warchief will cause the totem, and not the player, to gain Fortify on melee hit. This appears to be the way for a totem to have Fortify and with the Ascendant Champion Node. Totem can gain Fortify with a 14-20% chance when it stuns an enemy while wearing Perseverance.
  • Multiple Totems: Melee damage buff does not stack when multiple totems are summoned.
  • Totem Attack Range: The range at which the totem strikes is affected by the weapon range of the equipped weapon and modifiers to weapon range.[1]
  • Area of Effect: Modifiers to area radius affect both the range at which the totem strikes, as well as the radius of the attack.
  • Activation: The totem is active as long as the player remains within a 85 unit radius of it. Initial activation also requires line of sight with the player, but this can be broken once the totem has become active.
  • Dual Wielding: The skill will only consider the main hand weapon for purposes of attack speed and damage.[2]
