Mechanic: Totem

The totem mechanic places an invisible “totem”, similar to the projectile mechanic, except that it doesn't move. Much like projectiles, you can use onTick skills to create effects in order to identify the totem's location.

Totems will pulse their onHit skill on any targets that come within their defined radius until their charges or duration run out. They're useful for creating ground effects with particles, such as clouds of poison or land mines.
