    to Ancestral Protector will cause the totem, and not the player, to gain Fortify on melee hit. This appears to be the only way for a totem to have Fortify.
  • Multiple Totems: Melee damage buff does not stack when multiple totems are summoned.
  • Melee Weapon and Unarmed Range: All modifiers to "Range" are ignored by the totem.
  • 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: Totem uses only main hand weapon to attack.
