Totems are a captivating collection of map assets, embodied by unique life forms. As players, you'll embark on a journey to nurture and maintain your totems' health, requiring Protem spending. Skillful nurturing will yield additional Protem as rewarding outcomes.
In the expansive Upland metaverse, Stem will hold the vital role of sustaining all living things, such as trees, animals, and plants. Life's design will closely mirror the real world, where living assets will require nourishment in the form of Stem.
To facilitate the transition, Protem, a substitute currency, will be utilized until the full release of Stem and Life. Protem will be redeemable 1:1 with Stem upon its eventual launch. All totem holders will receive an initial supply of Protem, and when totems are activated, players will receive a fixed amount of Protem for each totem they hold.
A totem cycle in Totem spans a 30-day period, during which totems come to life. Throughout the cycle, players can spend Protem to keep their totems "alive" and, in turn, collect Protem yield rewards. The amount of Protem a totem yields during the cycle depends on players' behaviors, including spend frequency, spend amount, and collection frequency. Achieving the best Protem yield performance involves testing and exploring optimal spending strategies, as each totem is truly one-of-a-kind!
After the cycle concludes, totems hibernate, and players can no longer spend Protem for yield rewards until the next cycle begins. The frequency of totem cycles will be determined based on early cycle results. Embrace the enchanting journey, nurture your unique totems, and unlock the art of strategic spending to maximize Protem rewards!
Totem traits are the heart and soul of these captivating creatures. Each totem possesses 5 visual traits, and each trait represents an attribute that determines the nature of the Totem. These traits — Life Form, Style, Color, Scale, and Totem Base - influence your Totem's appearance, behavior, Protem rewards, and more. These visual traits represent five specific attributes of your totem – Output, Input, Frequency, Capacity, and Stamina.
Totem's Life Form presents an enchanting array of animal and plant types, comprising 11 captivating variations. Each Life Form is intricately connected to a distinct "Output" curve, showcasing the totem's yielding pattern and overall yield returns.
Players can access different rarities of Totems based on the Pass that they purchase in the Upland Store during specific sale periods.
Nurture your Totem to power its lifecycle! Spend Protem to nurture your Totem and keep it "alive" during the 30-day cycle. As you nurture your totem, it generates Protem rewards. Collect them periodically to grow your resources and further nurture your totem's potential. The right spending strategy is essential – too much or too little can affect your rewards. Remember, spending frequency and amount matter.
Aim to spend Protem within each interval of the cycle. Timing matters! Make your Protem spend close to the center of the interval for the best results. This ensures maximum yield returns and enhances your totem's potential. Missing intervals might lead to penalties, and multiple spending within the same interval won't yield additional rewards. Find your totem's sweet spot and make the most of it.
