This article is about Invention materials. For Archaeology materials, see Materials (Archaeology).
For Effigy Incubator materials, see Material (Effigy Incubator).

Materials are the parts and components into which items are disassembled in the Invention skill. Materials are subsequently used, sometimes with non-Invention items, to construct inventions. The quantity of each material (except junk) is capped at 100,000 per player. If the player would get a material they already have 100,000 of, then those materials will not be added and the materials are not rerolled.

Materials currently owned may be viewed in the Invention pouch in the Backpack.

Common materials[edit | edit source]

When disassembling materials, common components are shown as white text and are often found in every item.

Uncommon materials[edit | edit source]

Uncommon materials are found the same way as with common materials. However, when a player disassembles an item for an uncommon material, they are highlighted as orange text.

Rare materials[edit | edit source]

Unlike common and uncommon materials, rare materials can only be found through more specific items. Most rare materials have a 100% chance of being obtained when disassembling the appropriate items. Some rare materials require discovery at an Inventor's workbench before they may be used in a gizmo; however, this level is not required to obtain them.
