The Sword Coast Adventurers Guide (p. 122) describes a number of Uthgardt tribes for the Path of the Totem Warrior barbarian from the Player's Handbook. Saying:
The totems of the Uthgardt barbarians of the North … correspond to the spirits of the Path of the Totem Warrior as shown in the following table.
The Tree Ghost totem in the table has the spirit listed as:
Bear, with speak with plants in place of the normal rituals for the Spirit Seeker feature
Do I need to choose Bear for the 6th and 14th level Totem Warrior features, or just the Totem Spirit at 3rd Level, to gain access to speak with plants in place of the normal rituals for the Spirit Seeker feature?
Normally, the totem animal choice can vary between level features because it says (PHB p. 50):
You can choose the same animal you selected previously or a different one.
I just want to be a weird moss-whispering barbarian, chatting away to the plants all the time (but I also want Eagle eyesight at level 6).
