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.
Item is overvalued by vendors
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 that sells for Mirror Shards.
Note: Using a 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.
For example, a rare Stygian Vise belt with mods “Item sells for much more to vendors” may exchange for an Orb of Alteration, one Exalted Orb, 2 Alteration Shards, and 6 Alchemy Shards.
The spawn weight for Mirror Shard is 1. There is a total of 9 possibilities with varying weights, from one with weight 1 and one with weight 10 through to four with weight 6000. Total weight: 23011, so about .00004346 or .004346% chance to get 2 Mirror Shards. Also, the exalts are surprisingly “common” at a 4.346% chance (1000 weight). Albino feathers are the 2nd rarest at 10 weight.
The drop location of Gilded Fossil is Azurite Mine.
Is sometimes sold by Niko the Mad for 10 000 Azurite
