Ritual Vessel stores the monsters slain for the first time from a completed Ritual Altar for future use.
In the end game, you can obtain Ritual vessels, which allow you to itemise the monsters from a ritual. You can place up to four vessels in the map device alongside a map to add the monsters stored in those vessels to the rituals present in that map. This increases both the difficulty and rewards of the rituals as well as generating even more tribute to spend on rewards.
For example, because there's a chance of encountering a Headhunter or Mirror of Kalandra as rewards, using Ritual vessels increases the chances you'll be offered these items and allows you to afford them.
In addition, you can use these vessels to substantially increase monster density in maxed out maps that have mechanics like Beyond or Delirium present.
Using vessels, you have control over the risk and reward of your hardest Ritual encounters.
Vessels are tradeable both before and after they contain monsters.
Using a Ritual Vessel at any completed Ritual Altar will turn it into a Blood-filled Vessel, capturing a record of all the monsters first slain at that Ritual. Blood-filled Vessels can be placed alongside any Map in the Map Device to imbue the Rituals in that area with the captured monsters.
Cannot be used on a Ritual in a map opened with a Blood-Filled Vessel. This means you can only use Ritual Vessels in a map that does not currently have a Vessel active.

You can buy Ritual Splinters from completed Rituals which can be combined to create a Ritual Vessel. The drop level of Ritual Splinter is 1. Combine 100 Splinters to create a Ritual Vessel.
With all of that Tribute, Ritual Splinters have been purchased 26,184,083 times. This is the total number of purchases made, rather than the total count of Ritual Splinters purchased. An average area has ~3 Rituals, giving us 208,110,699 areas run. With this, we can see that players purchased Ritual Splinters every ~8 areas. Of the Ritual Vessels created from these splinters, 1,658,608 were used on Ritual Altars.
That means that, on average, a Ritual Vessel was used on a Ritual Altar once for every 125 areas run. Furthermore, 926,764 Blood-filled Vessels were used in the Map Device, or once for every 224 areas run. This is fairly infrequent and may be something that GGG would want to revisit in the future should Ritual make its way into the core game.
