Add Powerful Totem Poles with the Totemic Mod (1.6.4)

The Totemic mod for 1.6.4 adds magic totem poles that can effect you, nearby entities, or your whole world. They are powered by the life from plants.


Totems are powerd by life essence which can be extracted from plants using the Totem of Draining.


Ocelot: This will stop all nearby creepers from exploding
Horse: This gives you a speed boost
Hopper: Will move all nearby items into the block under the totem intelligence
Blaze: This will give nearby players fire resistance
Cactus: Damages nearby entities
Bat: Gives nearby players flight
Sun: Stops the rain
Food: Feeds you
Love: Makes all nearby animals breed
Draining: This will drain the life of all plants on the same Y axis as the Totem Intelligence and fills up your chlorophyll crystals
Range: This will make all totem effects have more range.

Totem ranges:

Every Totem by default has 10 range horizontally and vertically. To increase this, you can use range totems, which will increase it by 5.

How to create a totem pole:
Totem poles are relatively simple, you merely place a Totem Structure Intelligence on the bottom, then place a number of ‘Totem Sockets’ from 1 – 5 directly above the’Totem Structure Intelligence’.

What you then need to do is put some totems into these, the totem intelligence will then do the desired effects and drain life essence from a chlorophyll crystal inside the Totem Intelligence.

Mana Totem:

This functions like a normal totem intelligence, but instead it uses mana from Botania. It cant use the draining totem.

Totem Structure Intelligence:
This is the main part of the Totem Pole structure. It needs to be at the bottom of the pole with a chlorophyll crystal inside. To craft this, right click a Totemic Wood block with your Infused Totemic Staff.

Totem Socket:
This is what you put your totems in. To craft it, right click a Totemic Wood block with a totem whittling knife and it will carve out the socket for you.

Infused Trees:

Infused trees are a special type of tree with unique properties allowing you to use them with Totem poles.
To create a totem you must create a pattern like this:


The fluid is liquid chlorophyll (just place it with a chlorophyll bucket).
You must then right click it with a Totemic Staff (Infused or normal) and then it has a chance to either just use up the chlorophyll or to turn the sapling into a Infused Sapling.

Totemic Staff:

The basic staff is created by using vanilla leaves and sticks. This is the staff that you will be using for certain events, such as the infused tree. The totemic staff can also be used to show how much durability there is in a Totem Intelligence, just right click on it with the staff.

Infused Totemic Staff:

A advanced staff used by combining the wood from the Infused Tree and the leaves from it. Measures chlorophyll from totems, has a higher chance to correct to the Infused Sapling creation and also won’t hurt you.

Chlorophyll Bottle and Bucket:

Both hold Chlorophyll.

Chlorophyll Crystal:

This is the battery for holding plant essence, totems will drain the plant essence from this to do their effects. This is created in the chlorophyll solidifier. This is charged by being in the slot of a Totem Intelligence when there is a Draining totem in one of the sockets and there are plants to drain essence of on the same Y axis as the totem intelligence

Blazing Chlorophyll Crystal:

This is charged like normal chlorophyll crystals. Placing this in a furnace slot allows you to burn it and it will take durability damage.

Chlorophyll Solidifier:
This is your way to infuse things with the power of chlorophyll, just right click with a bucket or bottle of chlorophyll and it will fill up.

It will then use the chlorophyll in recipes, these are a few of them:

16 Buckets of Chlorophyll + a Diamond = a Chlorophyll Crystal

4 Buckets Cobble or Stone brick = their mossy counterpart
