What are Totems?
Totems are collectible prizes which provide powerful bonuses throughout the game. Each totem has its own task(s) which must be completed to unlock their bonus, which is not bound to a single Tokota (unlike tack and companions.) There are many Totems spread over multiple departments with widely varying effects. Only 10 may be active at any time, so choose wisely. Check out the sections below to learn more!

How do Totems Work?
Players use the Totem Settings screen on Tokotna to build their Totem Pole; this can be accessed via the Manage Totems button on a player's profile. Once saved, the pole may only be edited once a month. The edit window depends on which of the following two settings have been chosen:
  • Reset
    • Totems will be completely reset at the end of the month. With this setting, the pole may be adjusted 1 time at any point in the month, but no totem bonuses will be applied until the new pole settings are saved.
  • Persistent
    • Totems will not be wiped at the end of the month; your current choices will be maintained into the next month. This setting allows for the bonuses to be adjusted 1 time during close. Once saved or the group re-opens, totems are locked and cannot be edited.
How do I Unlock Totems?
Each Totem has unique requirements which must be met in order to unlock the totem for use. Players are responsible for tracking their own proof of attaining these goals. Once the requirements for the desired totem have been met, the proofs should be posted in the Totem Unlock thread on the Account Management journal.

Please note that these requirements must all be fulfilled after the release date February 4th 2019 and retroactive proofs will not be accepted. The only exception to this rule is the Dog Totem, which is accessible to anyone who has already reached TCA Academy Level 5.

For an example of a Totem Tracker, as well as what types of proof will be needed for certain Totems, please check the Totem Example Proofs journal.

  • Do the Horse Totem and Trialist stack? Can I have three tokotas participate in a single CE entry?
    • No, the totem and trait do not stack. The maximum amount of Tokotas allowed to participate in a single CE image is 2, regardless of how many bonuses are being used.
