Sulphite

Voltaxic Sulphite is used to travel to undiscovered checkpoints in the Azurite Mine. From act 4 onwards, zones can spawn 3 caches of Sulphite. Clicking on it will summon Niko to harvest it. The higher the zone level, the more Sulphite is gained. In maps, the amount of Sulphite received can be increased with map quantity. Nearby party members will also receive the harvested Sulphite. The Sulphite in maps can be increased with certain Scarabs.

Players can only hold up to a certain amount of Sulphite at a time. The maximum Sulphite capacity can be upgraded using Azurite. The amount of Sulphite needed to navigate from one checkpoint to another depends on the depth and the length of the path, up to a maximum of 1100 Sulphite per segment.

Niko Farming

1. Niko Missions +1

Each day five new master missions (1 for each master) at will be added to the player’s accumulation after the reset at 0:00am (GMT+0) based on the tier (white, yellow, red) of the player’s last completed map. The map must be completed the day before in their own map device. Completing party-play maps from other players map devices does not count.

Niko Missions +1

2. Complete map

There is 35% chance (on average 7% per master) to have additional master mission from completing the map.

Tips: Run short maps (like  City Square Map) to gain master missions. Efficiency increases with Awakening Bonus completion. If possible, favourite the map, and manipulate watchstones to keep the map at a low red rank to optimize clearspeed.

3. Niko Sextants

Use Prime and Awakened Sextants for chance to roll “Area contains Niko”.
