Explosive Thorn Totem Shaman Guide


This Shaman shapeshifts into its Spriggan Form to rapidly summon Totems that explode and deal massive damage around them. The chained detonations fill the screen with death as you move towards your objective. While this is a totem setup, it plays more like a caster than a summoner.

This build's main focus is to spam Summon Healing Totem as fast as possible to chain proc Rotten Core explosions. The rest of the Skills provide tankiness, support and sustain. For that reason, this is a very simple but flexible build that can be modified depending on the player's needs or preferences.

This setup shines once you acquire the Set composed by the Ferebor's Persistence and the Ferebor's Chisel, but it's not necessary for the build to function. Additionally, Unique Items like Julra's Obsession, Death Rattle and Silvafrond are amazing to unleash the build's potential.

It's worth mentioning that this setup does not have the same level of mobility as other Primalist builds. However, this Shaman is a solid and easy-to-play option for players looking for a build that covers the screen with non-stop explosions. If you want a 1-button build with satisfying gear progression, this setup is perfect for you!
