Totems are items craftable by combining totem tops, middles, and bottoms, found on Anachronia. They can be placed to grant various passive bonuses to the player. Totem pieces can be stored in a totem bag.
After assembling a totem, it can be placed at one of three locations on Anachronia. It must then be activated in order to benefit from its effect. To activate it, the player has to interact with it and charge it. Whilst the totem is being charged, temporal instabilities can appear which can be closed. Charging the totem and closing the instabilities awards Divination experience. Once placed the totem cannot be removed until the next weekly reset. The player must recharge the totems with every weekly reset to retain their bonuses.
Obtaining all totem pieces completes the Jurassic Perk achievement.
