Gilded Fossil Guide – Best Use, Crafting, Mirror Shard

Gilded Fossil Gilded Fossil is a fossil type. Fossils are a special type of 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.

Best use of Gilded Fossil gamble

This fossil adds an implicit mod with the description Item sells for much more to vendors, which does not overwrite the item’s current implicit. The actual mod is chosen from a selection of random implicit mods that adds various currency items to the vendor price.

The result is RNG. The actual mods rolled on your item have no effect whatsoever. You could have a level 1 Driftwood Wand with "10 spell damage/mana on kill" or other normal items that sells for 2 Mirror Shards. However, the chance depends on the Spawn Weight, just like a gamble.

Note: Using a Fractured Fossil Fractured Fossil to mirror an item with the “Item sells for much more to vendors” implicit modifier now generates a new vendor sell price on the Mirrored copy.
