I agree.

I like it.

Summons a Totem which uses this Skill

Summons a totem which uses this skill?.. This skill is 'Ancestral Protector' itself, so according to description skill should summon a totem which uses skill 'Ancestral Protector' to summon totem which uses skill 'Ancestral Protector' to summon totem and so on...

I have been playing around a few hours with a build with multiple Protectors w/ Ancestral Call and Melee splash. I gotta admit, the clear speed is pretty impressive early on. I'm only on lvl 36, but so far it's actually mowing down mobs faster than my Warchiefs with melee supports. Although, I do feel my warchiefs are better against tougher mobs/bosses.

Also, the range when laying down two of these is insane. I can take out almost an entire screen. I can only imagine what it'll be like with even more of them. The dps can't be accurate, given that it's hitting up to 6 times per swing w/splash. So far it has been pretty dang fun!

Yes it should work if it didn't say on the coh gem: Cannot support totems, traps, or mines. Minions cannot apply curses this way.

Maybe it was deemed too powerful to be usable with a totem like the protector. I've never seen or heard a reason for this programming so who knows.

I'm currently using the protector on my oro flicker scion in incursion event.
It's only a single link for the 19% more attack speed and i typically only use it for bosses but it's well worth the slot.

One crucial task for the protector is to protect shaper in the elder fight, phase 2. I hold one side and he holds the other.

In my opinion, both Ancestral Warchief and Protector are too good and too viable for non-totem builds, to the point where I'm GIMPING myself if not using them as a Cyclone Slayer character (or many other physical based characters for that matter), without a single aspect of my character being dedicated to being good with totems.

They need to be changed someway in order to only be worthwhile if you're actually investing in totems.
