Protean powerup detail.png

Protean powerups are items used to increase the speed at which protean items are processed by 15% rounded down. Each powerup lasts for 5 minutes per activation, stacking up to 2 hours (a maximum of 24 powerups can be used at one time). They can be right-clicked to check the currently active powerup's duration. The duration can also be seen as a buff on the buff bar. The timer is paused upon exiting to the lobby or logging out.

The powerup has no effect on protean traps and protean planks.

Protean powerups can be obtained from Yak Tracks and some Treasure Hunter promotions such as Time to Train.
