Nullifium is a currency used for upgrading Heirlooms. It is mainly obtained from recycling unwanted Heirlooms found in Void maps, or as a reward for completing certain cells in Spires.

Dark Essence[]

Dark Essence is a currency used for purchasing Masteries. It can only be obtained by using the Scryer formation on Zone 181 and above, where each beaten cell has a 3% chance to drop a fixed number of Dark Essence. This table contains the number of Dark Essence per cell on each zone. Dark Essence persists through Portals.

Magmite and Fuel[]

Magmite is a currency used to upgrade the Dimensional Generator, while Fuel is used to fill it up. Both are obtained by defeating Magma Cells. Each Magma Cell will drop exactly 1 Magmite if the Dimensional Generator is in the "Gain Mi" mode, or at least 0.20 units of fuel in "Gain Fuel" mode.

Additional levels of Supply are needed to get more than 0.20 fuel per cell; see the Dimensional Generator page for details.

Initially 30% of unspent Magmite will be lost if you Portal, but this can be decreased using the Shielding Dimensional Generator upgrade.

Tokens of Nature[]

Tokens are a currency used to upgrade Empowerments of Nature. They are obtained from defeating enemies from the World with special cell colors of green (Poison), light blue (Wind) or blue (Ice). Tokens persist through Portals.

Runestones and Spirestones are currencies used in the Player's Spire. Defeat enemies in your Spire to earn Runestones to buy Traps, Towers and their upgrades. Spirestones are gained by clearing Spires and are required to construct more Floors of your Spire. Runestones and Spirestones persist through Portals and the Universes.
