Pylon battery detail.png

Pylon batteries are items which can be found in the Kharid-et Dig Site while excavating the various sites (remains and material caches) of the Main Fortress level. The pylon batteries may also be obtained as a reward from the collector Soran, Emissary of Zaros by completing their archaeological collections. They have two uses within Kharid-et.

Uses[edit | edit source]

Pylon[edit | edit source]

Main article: Pylon (Archaeology)

The first and foremost use for the pylon batteries is for charging the pylons found in the main area of the digsite. Adding pylon batteries to pylons awards Archaeology experience based on level, each battery also contributing 0.001% charge to the pylon across all worlds up to 100% (100,000 batteries in total) for a temporary buff to all players that lasts for 30 minutes. A maximum of 10,000 batteries can be handed in at once.

Handing in batteries will give experience based on the number of batteries:

Pylon boost[edit | edit source]

When the pylon is charged to 100%, everyone in Kharid-et on all worlds are given the opportunity to receive pieces of the Inquisitor staff when excavating from any excavation or cache node in the main and prison area of the fortress for 30 minutes. The drop rate of staff pieces are further increased when excavating in the praetorium.

During this time, pylon batteries are unobtainable but can still be turned in for experience. Doing so does not extend the duration of the pylon's activation effects nor will it provide charge after the pylon's buff effect has ended. Therefore, it is best to wait until after the event has ended to turn in pylon batteries.

Shadow anchors[edit | edit source]

The second use for pylon batteries are for activating shadow anchors. A total of ten batteries are used to charge each of the eight shadow anchors permanently in Kharid-et, requiring a total of 80 batteries to charge all of them.
