Zecora's Hut (In-Game)

Located in the Everfree Forest, this building is Zecora's former home and contains a minigame where you can create Totems to generate Element Shards by mixing locally gathered ingredients. The Totem needs to be created by mixing three different ingredients, but the order of the ingredients doesn't matter.

If you have run out of an ingredient(s) needed for a mixture, you can still create the mixture by paying gems for the missing ingredient(s) or collect some from the Forest. This cost varies for each ingredient.

Once created, a totem can be placed in one of four slots outside Zecora's Hut where it will generate shards four times. After that, the last time you collect shards from the totem, it will be removed which will give space for another totem.

Totems can be purchased immediately from the Totem Shelf without the need to wait or use ingredients in return for Gems. This is only available for a given totem if it has already been unlocked by finding their ingredient combination at least once. 

In update 4.2, the time it take to create totems have drop significantly along with the time to collect, which means small ones take 40 seconds to create, greater ones take 2 minutes and superior ones take 3 minutes, while the friendship ones, both normal and greater ones, take 5 minutes regardless of how many shards they give. It also means small totems produces once per 30 minutes, greater ones takes 3 hours 30 minutes and superior ones take 6 hours instead.

In update 4.7, totems will instantly disappear after they have finished generating Element Shards.

Note that Zecora's Cottage is a different building - it's Zecora's home in Ponyville.
