LEGO Fortnite: How to craft the Totem of Return 

To create these totems, you have to earn a resource called Storm Cores. These cores can be earned by defeating the tougher enemies in Expert Mode called Storm Wild enemies, who only appear in this mode. They hit harder, can withstand more damage, and seem to move faster. So when fighting these creatures, ensure you have health items to buffer attacks. Your best bet would be food items from animals. They’re more common and easier to come by. Plus, you make stronger health items with them.

Upon earning a core, you’ll get the recipe to craft the Totem of Return. The more you earn from Storm Wild enemies, the more totems you can bank. 

How does the Totem of Return work?

It’s in the name. When you die in Expert Mode, you get sent back to your bed. So, in case you don’t have a vehicle to bail when things go south, and you die, having a totem is a good fallback plan. Upon using this totem when you return to your bed, the totem gets destroyed. In other words, it’s a one-time-use item

What happens if I don’t have a totem?

If you don’t have a Totem of Return and your hearts are gone, you’ll simply get sent out of the Expert Mode. So when you die permanently, you’ll still have access to LEGO Fortnite — but you won’t be able to back to that world. You can join a non-Expert Mode to play casually, or if you want to go back and face the challenges, you can create another Expert Mode.
