These totems should be transferable within account

Totems from this event, Dark Lords of Darkness, should be at least transferable within account. If you don't have your class's specific totem, you will have to throw them away even if it's dark totem. It is such a waste and a complete nightmare. Personally, I got all three other dark totems that are useless to me which sucks.

    Dark totems that aren't for your class are not useless. All of them have 15 weapon and magic attack.

    The event is designed to have a low rate of getting the totem you want, so people would have to keep participating in it. On average, it takes 3 years (3 returns of the event) to get 3 dark totems for your class.
    If we could do it on 40 characters and move the dark totems around to whichever character needs them most, we'd be done in a week. That's not Nexon's intention.

    A change I would make is to somehow ensure that if a character does complete the quest every day, they should be guaranteed one dark totem for their class by the end of the event. It's quite unfair that one can do everything they possibly can, and still fail due to bad luck.

    Not sure why I thought this is only able to clear once a day with one character in the world.
    That's a good idea too!

    They should at least make it so that we could trade in 3 dark totems of any class for a single dark totem of your class, just in case you don't get it after 3 years of non-main dark totems.

    This is what's wrong with current MS, the outrageous amount of things requiring consistency of log ins.
    The fact that you can't trade them is bogus, when people can just pay their way to obtaining trade-able ones, this is why Reboot is so popular as it eliminates the ever growing gap of pay to win.

    If on regular servers there's essentially a pay wall to play past lucid content with whales that smash 40k+ stat because they either hack or pay thousands of dollars you have a problem. It directly effects why botting has become such a huge issue, because many people want to be a whale but don't want to pay to break the needless walls created to guarantee consistency of log ins.

    If people would be willing to do dark lords of darkness on multiple characters, there's no good reason not to let them trade them within the account to reap the reward of spending their time.
