Ancestral energy are Divination springs found on Uncharted Isles. They bleed out from the island's anima, leaking from the cracked head of a Dead moai. They require a Divination level of at least 95 to harvest, which is boostable. 75 Ancestral energy can be obtained from each spring before exhausting the energy from it. Four springs can be found around the leaking Moai head - springs can spawn underneath each other or the head but are still harvestable. It takes roughly 8.5 minutes to deplete a spring, which gives about 14,800 experience.
At level 99, harvesting from these springs grants 107,000 experience and 1,200 chimes an hour. Using a diviner's outfit and elder divination outfit grants 121,000 experience and 1,285 chimes an hour. With the addition of Clan Avatar, Wise 3 perk, Wisdom aura, The Arc's contracts, superior memory-crushing scrimshaw, decorated divination urns, and urn enhancer it becomes 250,000 experience per hour.
It is possible for chronicle fragments to escape from these springs while harvesting energy. A Cyansoul Kakapo may also be encountered near these springs.
Wearing the divination energy, chronicle, or memory outfit will occasionally grant double experience when harvesting from the ancestral energy spring. Additionally, the elder divination outfit will occasionally give 1 extra energy when receiving energy from the ancestral spring. A (superior) energy-gathering scrimshaw will occasionally double the amount of energy received - these can stack to give 7 energy instead of 3.
A (superior) memory-crushing scrimshaw will destroy collected energy 15-20% of the time, granting doubled experience. However, each spring will still provide 75 ancestral energy regardless. This can stack with the divination outfits, giving triple experience. The elder outfit can still increase the energy, but only if it is not destroyed by the scrimshaw.

- patch 1 October 2018 (Update):
- Players can now gather and weave Ancestral energy from uncharted islands with boosted Divination.
- Previously, the animation used while harvesting a standard spring was also used while harvesting ancestral springs. It lasted a fraction of the time it took to deplete an ancestral spring, causing players to appear to temporarily stand idle in front of the spring while energies were harvested. This has since been corrected.
