Inspiration

A player obtaining inspiration while disassembling items.

Inspiration is a mechanic of the Invention skill. Inspiration is used to unlock blueprints of equipment and upgrades in the skill. How optimised the blueprint is during the research process determines how much inspiration is used, with poorly optimised blueprints consuming the most (up to 220% of minimum) and perfectly optimised blueprints consuming the least.

MechanicsEdit

Inspiration can be earned by:

  • Advancing an Invention level
  • Earning experience in any skill (including Invention); a limited amount of inspiration can be earned this way on each level (resets each time an Invention level is advanced and is equal to 50% of the current level's initial inspiration gains)
  • Dismantling a level 10 or higher augmented item
    • The Inspiration cap every level affects both the inspiration gained by training any skills and the inspiration gained from dismantling a level 10 weapon/armour.

The total pool of inspiration earned for every level is fixed at the total needed to research everything and will eventually be entirely earned by a player. If levels are skipped (as they often are at low levels due to the large amount of experience granted by dismantling levelled-up augmented items), the earnable inspiration at those levels is not lost, but earnable later. If a project is researched without perfect optimisation, the excess inspiration used is returned to the pool to be earned again later. If new research projects are released, the pool size is increased and the additional inspiration can be earned by all, even those that had previously earned all available inspiration.[1]

You can check the amount of inspiration you have by:
