Nexus For Your Character

About Nexus

Nexus determine what items you can mix or wear, or what creatures you can summon.

Take Only What You Need

There is no benefit to taking more Nexus than what is required for what you need. It would only be a waste of incredibly valuable pickpoints.

While you can remove Nexus using stones, the stones are among the most expensive things in the game so do not consider that to be a normal option.

Look at what items you want to wear, what nexus is required for items in skills you're leveling, and then only get the maximum you need for those specific Nexus.

To Add a Nexus

Go to The Wraith on Isla Prima. Select the Nexus you want. Each Nexus costs 1 Pickpoint.

To Remove a Nexus

You can remove a Nexus, getting your pickpoint back, by using a Nexus Removal Stone. There is a stone for each Nexus type.

Nexus removal stones are primarily found on incredibly high level creatures in invasions, instances, and invances. They can an also be an incredibly rare find while harvesting.

Tanta NPC in Port Anitora also sells 3 types of Nexus removal stones for 1,000,000 .

To Buy a Nexus

You also have the option to buy a Nexus of any kind from Costel NPC in Port Anitora. He'll sell you a Nexus if you bring him 50 Hydrogenium Bars (approximate worth: 750,000 ).
