Cinder core detail.png

A cinder core causes bonus experience to be used at 250% of the normal rate when worn in the pocket slot. Two cinder cores can be purchased for 250 oddments from the Marketplace, and are also available as a rare prize in Treasure Hunter.

The XP amount it can be used for scales with the player's total level. For a maxed player it will explode after 51,613 additional bonus experience has been used while wearing it. This means that each core will last for approximately 86,021.6 bonus experience, 34,408.6 base experience, or 120,430.2 total experience.

When the cinder core explodes, an effect is given to the player wearing the core and the players around them, giving a 2% bonus XP burn rate. Every time another cinder core explodes, another 2% bonus is added to the buff to a maximum of 10% bonus burn rate. The effect lasts 10 minutes, with the timer being reset every time another cinder core explodes. This bonus stacks multiplicatively with the cinder cores' regular effect.

Players can choose to lock any set of skills by choosing the "Toggle skills" option.

Cinder cores can be obtained and worn in free-to-play, however they only provide their effects during Double XP Live events as free players cannot use bonus experience outside these events.
