Engineer’s Orb improves the quality of a Strongbox. More Strongbox quality means
more Item Quantity. Increased Item Quantity from items does not increase the number of items dropped from a strongbox. However, map quantity and the quality of Strongbox do increase the number of items dropped from most strongboxes.
All strongboxes are normally capped at 20% quality and each Engineer’s Orb currency that affect quality will improve:
There are different types of strongboxes, only Diviner’s Strongbox, Cartographer’s Strongbox, and Arcanist’s Strongbox are worth a lot of investment. It is suggested to only using Engineer’s Orb to these strongboxes:
|Base Type||Loot Contents|
|Arcanist’s Strongbox||Currency that do not affect quality|
|Cartographer’s Strongbox||Maps, The Cartographer|
|Diviner’s Strongbox||Divination cards|
