Essence Icon essence.png[edit | edit source]

Essence is the second most common currency in the game. It is used to upgrade Relics. Essence can be acquired through killing enemies with a glowing purple aura, by exchanging Gold in the Magic Well,or by completing the 3v3 tournament at a specific Difficulty:

  • Level 5: 15 Essence
  • Level 6: 30 Essence
  • Level 7: 45 Essence
  • Level 8: 60 Essence
  • Level 9: 1 Relic Token
  • Magic Well: 5000 Gold x Essence

Essence cost increase with relic level by the equation: relic level ^ 1.3

Relic Token Icon token.png[edit | edit source]

Relic Tokens can be acquired by completing the 3v3 tournament at Difficulty 9. They can be spent to level up a Relic by one without spending Essence. Relic tokens may be acquired once every four hours, and it is recommended that these tokens be saved until relic upgrades are infeasible with Essence or Mystic Caps.

Mystic Caps Icon cap.png[edit | edit source]

Mystic Caps can be acquired by reaching the Gold Cap, which is 1.5 Billion. The Gold will be automatically converted into one Mystic Cap (this can be switched off at the Wizard and doesn't activate until after leaving the dungeon when the cap is first reached).

Mystic Caps can be used to upgrade Relics +10 and +100. The cost of this is dependent on the relic level, and upgrading relics with caps is generally less efficient than with gold (via converting gold to essence). At high levels caps are better than gold since with gold you have to leave the dungeon every time you reach 1.5 Billion.

There are exceptions: at level 296, 540 and others (predictable using Σ notation for x1.3) the cost in Gold for the next 100 levels is actually more than what the required Mystic Caps cost. The savings are relatively minor, though, and within a few levels the cost in Mystic Caps increases to make Gold more efficient on its own.


  • 200658 Essence to go from 294 to 394
  • 200658 Essence multiplied by the 5000 Gold cost is 1,003,290,000 Gold
  • A Mystic Cap costs 1,000,000,000 Gold so 1,003,290,000 - 1,000,000,000 = 3,290,000 Gold saved if a Mystic Cap is spent at level 294
  • Above level 296 the cost for 100 Relic levels increases to 2 Mystic Caps making Gold more efficient until level 540

Mystic Caps can also be used to purchase the premium characters: Wizard, Gladiator, Shopkeeper and Owner, as well as more relics in the final dimension by accessing the portal.

1 cap Tap Select (allows toggling of which party members are available in the tavern)

5 caps Void Cola (unlocks Shifter party member)

25 caps Gladiator party member unlocked

50 caps Shopkeeper or Wizard party members unlocked

100 caps Owner party member unlocked

The cost of mystic caps per 100 relic levels increases by one at certain relic level intervals.
