Cosmic accumulator detail.png

The cosmic accumulator is obtained by combining the cosmic focus, a reward from the Desperate Measures quest, with the cosmic pyramid, a reward for turning in the Desperate for Artefacts collection after completion of Desperate Measures. It requires level 90 Archaeology (boostable with soil tea at level 88 and with an Archaeology potion at level 87).

It has two passive effects when carried in the inventory during excavation:

  1. Prevents Sprite Focus from dropping below 20% as long as you continue to excavate. If sprite focus is already below 20%, it will be prevented from dropping further.
  2. When excavating with a time sprite in focus, randomly provides a 60-second buff (1% chance to activate) called Stasis chamber fragment boost. While the buff is active, sprite focus gains an additional +1%, giving +3% per action with no other buffs. This stacks with the perk from the Archaeology cape for a total of +4%.

When it activates, the player will receive a game message: "The cosmic accumulator in your inventory starts vibrating, emitting energy. Whilst vibrating, your sprite focus gain is boosted." At the end it will say "Your cosmic accumulator has stopped emitting excess energy."

Steps to obtain[edit | edit source]

Navigate to the dragonkin ruins north-east of the Anachronia lodestone.
You'll have to use the agility course, head past the cave, and then walk east past the jadinkos to reach the ruins.
Enter the southern door of the ruins.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The additional sprite focus from the second effect is not gained on the tick the effect activates, so it does not affect the player's ability to drink powerburst of opportunity at the right time.
  • The Cosmic Ordering journal seems to suggest that this item created by Skeka or her research team, based on her own Cosmic pyramid.
