Encrusted Fossil Encrusted Fossil is a fossil type. Fossils are a special type of Path of Exile Currency introduced in the delve league that can be socketed into resonators to modify the crafting behavior in specific ways. Fossils can also add special Delve modifiers.

How to use Encrusted Fossil?

By using this fossil the item either keeps the same amount of sockets or it gains more upto its maximum. Even though the fossil has no mod that says More Links, the aforementioned behaviour also works for the amount of links an item has. Note that the order of links on the item might change.

Rolling white sockets onto an item is not guaranteed.
