Trying to totem a bunch of water rooms, and having trouble keeping the water out long enough to get the totem implanted. Whether it's the Sceptre of Aqueous Mastery or one of the several water-parting abilities, the water only stays parted for about five minutes. Even with the artefact toteming gloves, that's still about two minutes before the totem finishes.
I've had limited success timing the part/implant so the water returns between implant "ticks". This works sometimes, but I've noticed with the Sceptre that the timing isn't always consistent (water rushes back in before it should and stops the implant).
Any suggestions, ideas, or better ways to do this?
