Can you dual wield totems?

If so...
Say you have a shaman with two totems.  Each one has a different reaction ability. 
Sub 1.  Can you choose which reaction you want(by dual wielding them), or do you need to be focused on one or the other?
Sub 2.  Can you then hold a totem in each hand, choosing which you want to cast through?

Thanks for your time,
Cliff
yes you can dual wield totems just like any other 1 handed implement.

yes you can choose which power you want to use at any time.  No need to focus on either one.

yes you choose which implement to use when declaring you're using a power.  You can cast one power via totem 1 then another power via totem 2 with no issue.  You can do this as much as you want.

Thanks.  Wasn't sure since I was thinking of them like holy symbols.
you can hold 2 holy symbols at the same time if you want.  It's the same thing as the totems.

Well, actually, you can't (at least for enchanted symbols):


"Unlike other implements, a holy symbol can be used whether it is held or worn. If a creature wears or holds more than one holy symbol, none of these symbols function until only one remains (this rule is usually relevant only to magic holy symbols)."

really ? huh...  Didn't know that a specific rule existed for holy symbols.  My bad ^^

It is because holy symbols are basically slotless. If that rule didn't exist you could just toss 'em all around your neck.

Word.

OD&D, 1E and 2E challenged the player. 3E challenged the character, not the player. Now 4E takes it a step further by challenging a GROUP OF PLAYERS to work together as a TEAM. That's why I love 4E.

"Challenge" is overrated.  "Immersion" is usually just a more pretentious way of saying "having fun playing D&D."
