IconHelpLoading totem

Totems are Props and a Game Mechanic that were added to Dead by DaylightIconHelp DBDlogoIconHelp DBDlogoIconHelp DBDlogo with Patch 1.3.0.


Overview

All Trials spawn with 5 Totems in random location, usually hidden against environmental objects and in nooks and cranies.

Depending on the Perks that are used (or not) by the Players participating in the Trial, Totems will appear in one of 3 possible states:

  • Default as a Dull Totem.
  • Cursed as a Hex Totem (a Rekindled Totem is equivalent to this state).
  • Blessed as a Boon Totem.


Interactions

There are 4 possible ways to interact between Players and Totems.
2 of them require having certain Perks equipped:

  • Cleansing
  • Blessing
  • Snuffing
  • Rekindling

Cleansing

Atl Hud Icon Cleansing
This interaction is only available to Survivors

Cleansing is available on Dull Totems and Hex Totems.

Survivors can walk up to either type of Totem and perform the Cleansing interaction, which by default takes 14 seconds to complete.
The interaction cannot be interrupted, as this will reset any partial progress.

Once the interaction is completed, the Totem breaks apart into its constituent parts.
If it was a Hex Totem, this will trigger a map-wide thunderclap sound effect and remove the Hex Curse from it (which usually disables the associated Hex Perk).
Cleansing all Totems in the environment will prevent any new Hexes from being applied to them, as cleansed Totems cannot be (re-)hexed.

Blessing

Atl Hud Icon Blessing
This interaction is only available to Survivors

Blessing is available on all Dull Totems and Hex Totems, if the Survivor has a Boon Perk equipped.

Survivors with Boon Perks equipped can walk up to either type of Totem and perform the Blessing interaction, which by default takes 14 seconds to complete on Dull Totems, and 28 seconds (double, Blessing a Hex Totem applies an Action Speed penalty of -50 %) to complete on Hex Totems.
The interaction cannot be interrupted, as this will reset any partial progress.

Once the interaction is completed, a map-wide thunder-roar sound effect is triggered, and the effects of the Boon Perks equipped by the Survivor performing the Blessing radiate from the newly created Boon Totem.
Blessing a Hex Totem has the same effects as Cleansing, except that instead of breaking apart the Totem, it will instead transform it into a Boon Totem.

Snuffing

Atl Hud Icon Snuffing
This interaction is only available to Killers

Snuffing is available to all Killers by default.

A Killer can walk up to any Boon Totem and snuff it out, which takes 1 second to complete.

Snuffing out a Boon Totem removes its blessing and transforms it back into a Dull Totem.
If the Killer is using the Perk Shattered HopeIconPerks shatteredHopeIconPerks shatteredHopeIconPerks shatteredHope, this interaction will instead break the Totem apart into its constituent parts, as if a Survivor had cleansed it.

Rekindling

This interaction is only available to Killers

Rekindling is available on all cleansed Totems, if the Killer has the Perk Hex: PentimentoIconPerks hexPentimentoIconPerks hexPentimentoIconPerks hexPentimento equipped.

A Killer can walk up to any cleansed Totem and rekindle it, which takes 1 second to complete, transforming it into a Rekindled Totem, which looks slightly different to a regular Hex Totem, but otherwise behaves identically, with two exceptions (see below).


Totem Types

There are 4 different types of Totems:

Dull Totems

Dull Totems are unlit Totems found in random locations throughout the environment.

Unless the Killer uses any Hex Perk, or Hex: No One Escapes DeathIconPerks hexNoOneEscapesDeathIconPerks hexNoOneEscapesDeathIconPerks hexNoOneEscapesDeath or Hex: PlaythingIconPerks hexPlaythingIconPerks hexPlaythingIconPerks hexPlaything prior to their activation, all Totems will be Dull Totems at the start of the Trial.

Hex Totems

FulliconStatusEffects cursed

Hex Totems are a special kind of Totem, identifiable by the lit candles underneath them.

If the Killer uses any Hex Perk (with the exceptions of Hex: No One Escapes DeathIconPerks hexNoOneEscapesDeathIconPerks hexNoOneEscapesDeathIconPerks hexNoOneEscapesDeath, Hex: PlaythingIconPerks hexPlaythingIconPerks hexPlaythingIconPerks hexPlaything, or Hex: Face the DarknessIconPerks hexFaceTheDarknessIconPerks hexFaceTheDarknessIconPerks hexFaceTheDarkness, which will not light their potential Totems until their activation), a randomly chosen Dull Totem will become a Hex Totem at the start of the Trial.

Each Hex Perk is tied to its own Hex Totem.
Neither the Killer nor the Survivors have any means to discern, which Hex is associated with which Hex Totem.

The destruction of a Hex Totem is accompanied by a distinct map-wide audio cue of a thunderclap.

Boon Totems

FulliconStatusEffects blessed
Atl Hud Icon BoonTotem

Boon Totems are another special kind of Totem, identifiable, and differing from Hex Totems, by a bluish shimmer emanating from the candles underneath them, as well as an audible drone sound effect whenever someone is within their range (24 metres).

Boon Totems cannot be cleansed, only snuffed.

The creation of a Boon Totem is accompanied by one of 3 distinct map-wide audio cues of a thunder-roar, similar to that of a destroyed Hex Totem, but less explosive.

Rekindled Totems

Rekindled Totems are a secondary form of a Hex Totem.
Currently, the only way to create them is by using the Hex Perk Hex: PentimentoIconPerks hexPentimentoIconPerks hexPentimentoIconPerks hexPentimento, which allows the Killer to rekindle the broken remains of a cleansed Totem.

Rekindled Totems work the same as a Hex Totem, with the sole two differences that once they are cleansed again, The Entity will completely remove the broken remains from the environment, making any further interaction impossible, and that Survivors cannot bless them.

  • In rare cases and due to bugs, it has occurred that some iterations of the largest Maps spawned an additional sixth Totem.
  • Killers who have a unique Hatch closing animation will use that when snuffing a Boon Totem, except The DredgeIconHelpLoading dredgeIconHelpLoading dredgeIconHelpLoading dredge, which uses an attack animation.
  • If a Survivor is (self-)healing thanks to Boon: Circle of Healing and a Skill Check appears while the Killer is snuffing the Totem, that Skill Check will automatically fail.
