The Soul Pool is where you can apply bonuses to your tokota using Elemental Hearts, which are a rare item that can be found in Caving or Diving under normal circumstances.

Deep in the White Forest of Tokotna lies the Soul Pool, where the elder shamans say that Aippaq took their first breath. These deeply spiritual waters can grant great power to a tokota if the right gift is brought - the gift of an Elemental Heart. Do you wish for the gifts of Aippaq? Step forward and receive your blessings.

Item Blessings

  • Elemental Companion: Provides a 20% chance to bring back 1-2 trait token(s) from any caving/diving expedition, in addition to the regular item roll (i.e. they will be rolled on top of the maximum number of items retrieved). Can only be applied to Dominant tokotas.
  • Firefly Companion: Provides an increased chance to find Stone of Aippaq during exploring/caving/diving expeditions. Can only be applied to Dominant tokotas.
  • Spirit Dove Companion: Provides a +1 increase to the minimum litter size in breeding. Can only be applied to Dominant tokotas.
  • Stylist Token: +10% chance to inherit a chosen trait, gene or mane type from a parent when breeding (One time use).

Blessings for Any Tokota

  • Remove one birth defect from your tokota (Blind, Deaf, Spinal Defects, Lame, Frail).

Dominant-Only Blessings

  • Your tokota gains one extra hereditary trait slot (May only do this once per tokota).
  • Your tokota gains one extra companion slot (May only do this once per tokota).
  • Your choice of one of the following traits:
    1. Mimic - If this tokota is used in a breeding with a Hereditary Mutation, they would count as a parent with the same mutation for pass chance. This does not boost above two parents.
    2. Blessed - Your tokota can only encounter positive random events.
    3. Elemental Sight - Allows your tokota to find elemental hearts in exploration.
    4. Runic Sight - Allows your tokota to find Stones of Aippaq in Fishing and Hunting.
    5. Fragmented Sight - Allows your tokota to find matching Totem Fragments in their Activities and Totem Pouches in Dom Activities.
  • Add a second tier to one of the following traits (trait must be applied to your tokota):
    1. Passionate II: Tokota is able to be bred 2 times over the standard monthly limit.
    2. Ancient Blood II: Pups (from breedings in which one parent is akota) have a 15% higher chance of being akota built.
    3. Nanook’s Shadow II: Pups have a +20% chance of inheriting the coat of the darker parent. (Eg. Breedings between tundra and tawny base coats will have a higher chance of tawny, breedings between brown and black base coats will have a higher chance of black, etc.)
    4. Oddball II: Pups have a significantly higher chance to inherit any physical trait (so long as one parent has a physical trait.)
    5. Mediator II: Provides a 60+ increase to taming odds when depicted in a taming entry. (Must be full body)
    6. Sedna's Light II: Pups have a +20% chance of inheriting the coat of the lighter parent. (Eg. Breedings between tundra and tawny base coats will have a higher chance of tundra, breedings between brown and black base coats will have a higher chance of brown, etc.)
    7. Talented Lineage II: Pups have a significantly higher chance of inheriting non-physical traits. (Does not stack with Pygmy Goat or Lovebirds.)
    8. Superstar II: +3 HP bonus points awarded to other Tokotas included in the same image. (Your tokota will give an HP bonus for being depicted in the same image, but will not receive one itself.)
    9. Exemplary Dire Blood II: Only applies to dire tokotas
      If female can be bred up to 14 times in lifetime. If male can be bred up to 17 times in lifetime.
    10. Mauja's Draw II: Pups have a greatly increased chance of inheriting a random mutation. (Chimerism, Albinism, Bloodmark, or any Hereditary mutations present in the breeding.)

Looking for Physical Trait applications? Those are applied in the Design Central, and now use of require Soul Pool Water.
All other blessings are applied in the Tokota Tokens Bank.

Wondering, what the sense of Leadership II is... When you need to get your Toko to dom, before you can upgrade to II and it goes like "yeah, now you only need 180 HP" - its kinda too late? Maybe I don't get it right xD
Furreon's avatar
The info regarding leadership in this journal is very outdated actually xD This is the current description (from the Non-phys traits journal):

"Reduced HP required to move up hierarchy statuses. (Submissive > Average - 50 HP / Average > Dominant - 200 HP / Dom > Alpha - 250 HP)"

Can you use elemental hearts to remove Infertility if it counts as a defect?

I'm not an admin, but I found this comment from NorthPaws that answers your question:…
TheElvenJedi's avatar
With the trait blessings, (like Superstar II), does the tokota have to be dominant before we can apply those? Or can they be done at any time, if the tokota has the base trait?

Scribbles-Archive's avatar
Those that have a base tier, the base can be applied at any time, but the upgrades cannot be applied til after dom. Those without base tiers, such as Sticky Feet & Blessed must wait until dom.

I see, thank you for such a quick reply! :la:

Would a stylist token be able to be used to increase the chances of the cross mutation if at least one parent is a cross?
CH-Travels's avatar
When it says that Elemental Hearts can remove any birth defects from a geno, does that include infertility?
NorthPaws's avatar
No, infertility is the one thing a heart cannot remove (it's only removable with a very rare RE)
  • Remove one birth defect from your tokota (blindness, deafness, spinal problems).
CH-Travels's avatar
Thanks for the super speedy reply c: I saw the small list of defects mentioned in the journal, but wasn't sure if that was a complete list of the defects that could be cured
BriMK's avatar
Can a EH remove infertility, if its from a birth defect? 

(And, if it can't, is there an item that can, or at least lower the chance of it showing up in litters from inbreeding?)
NorthPaws's avatar
No, EH cannot remove infertility, and there are no items that will prevent it during inbreeding or double merle breeding.
Currently the only way to remove infertility is through a fairly rare RE, so it is possible, it's just quite difficult to do!
BriMK's avatar
Oh wow, I didn't know about that RE! Does it only effect the Toko that gets the event, or can you apply it to any? =0
NorthPaws's avatar
You can apply it to any tokota :eyes:

If an elemental heart was used to make glowing handpaints, would it be for just a single handpaint or applied to all on a tokota if it has more than one?
gloomydeerling's avatar
Can you stack stylist tokens?
NorthPaws's avatar
No, you can only use one on a single breeding.

Wait so can you choose what the Toko gets from the elemental heart? I’m currently in the process of working on art for someone and in return they give me Toko that’s ready for don 0^0
BitteRPG's avatar
Yes, you can choose to use Elemental Heart for one the things listed here :3
BlueWolf0907's avatar
Awesome! I didn’t know whether you chose or it was randomly rolled :)
