The Ayatan Sculptures are perpetually in motion, monuments of Orokin Continuity... immortality.

Folklore has it these Ayatans used to hold memories. Nowadays, some Ostrons survive peddling Old War trinkets like this, harvested from the Tower.

Ayatan Treasures are ancient Orokin artifacts powered by Endo that can be discovered across the system. There are two types available: Sculptures, and smaller Stars which can be inserted into the larger Sculptures to increase their value. These can be traded to Maroo at her Bazaar for varying amounts of Endo, or placed within the Orbiter as decorations.


  • Sculptures can be found in plain sight on regular missions, though this has a rare chance of occurring.
  • Stars of either type can occasionally be found from Storage Containers and lockers.
  • Kuakas, small rodents found on the Plains of Eidolon, have an affinity for shiny things and can also drop Stars when killed.
  • Maroo offers a weekly mission where it is guaranteed that a Sculpture will appear.
    • This mission can be run multiple times in a row, however, only one Sculpture can be rewarded per week.
  • Sculptures and Stars can be traded between players.
  • The Anasa Ayatan sculpture can only be found as a Sortie reward.
  • Sculptures can be acquired as a reward from Arbitration missions.


Main article: Ayatan Star

An Ayatan Star is a small treasure that can be inserted into Ayatan Sculptures to greatly increase their Endo value when traded in. Once slotted, a Star cannot be removed. They come in two colors: the more common cyan, and the rarer amber. Stars can also be traded in by themselves for a small Endo payout. Sculptures have 3 to 4 slots to insert Stars in, and each slot only accepts a specific color. Inserting Stars will also cause the Sculpture to visually animate, with more Stars improving the Sculpture's range of movement. At Mastery Rank 10, players gain the ability to auto-install Stars into their Sculptures.

Stars are dropped randomly from Storage Containers and lockers (including storage containers in Archwing missions). They have a noticeable glow and a unique marker on the mini-map (though Amber Stars have a slightly larger icon), and a specific sound plays when a Star is dropped. They must be picked up manually via a prompt, similarly to Syndicate Medallions. The Mod TT 20pxVacuum precept for Sentinels and the Scavenger Drone cannot pull Stars towards themselves, to prevent Stars from falling out of the map or otherwise becoming unobtainable.

As of Update 24.0, a reusable Amber Star blueprint can be acquired for 10 Vitus Essence from the Arbiters of Hexis room in any Relay.

Managing SculpturesEdit

In the Mods section of the Orbiter, selecting "Ayatan Sculptures" will allow the player to examine Sculptures and attach Stars. Stars can be inserted into a Sculpture by selecting the desired Sculpture, then hovering the cursor over a socket and clicking on it. The Sculpture must be in the player's inventory for it to be selected; if displayed as a decoration, the Sculpture will not appear in the Mods screen. Each Sculpture can have 3 to 4 sockets available for slotting, with each slot requiring a particular type of Ayatan Star depending on the type of Sculpture.

Sculptures can be sold at on Mars at Maroo's Bazaar for endo.

Endo values follow this formula:

Endo = (B + 50C + 100A) × (1 + M × (C + A) ÷ S)
  • B = base value
  • C = # of Cyan Stars installed
  • A = # of Amber Stars installed
  • M = multiplier (0.5 for Anasa, 3.0 for Zambuka and 2.0 for others)
  • S = # of sockets

As Fusion FuelEdit

Average Endo value of three-socket Sculptures is 1605.

  • For a rare mod to reach rank 10 will require:
    • 613.8 Cyan or 306.9 Amber Stars.
    • 19.1 three socket Sculptures, 11.4 Orta, or 8.9 Anasa.
  • For a Primed mod to reach rank 10 will require:
    • 818.4 Cyan or 409.2 Amber Stars.
    • 25.5 three socket Sculptures, 15.2 Orta, or 11.9 Anasa.

Endo Gain from StarsEdit

Anasa 2 2 2000 3450 1450 241.667 483.333

Zambuka 2 1 450 2600 2150 537.5 1,075

This table can indicate that the Anasa sculpture will yield the least amount of Endo gain for the number of Amber stars put into it at full value.

Weekly MissionEdit

Completing Stolen Dreams quest will unlock "Weekly Ayatan Treasure Hunt" Alert. Every Monday at 00:00 UTC, players should get this mission added to alerts section of the world state window that can be clicked to visit Maroo in the Maroo's Bazaar Relay on Mars to accept a mission in the Void or Orokin Derelict. Players are required to find a treasure room, which is a large special room filled with traps and obstacles that are activated upon players stepping on a pressure plate at the room's entrance. Once the traps have been activated, players only have a limited amount of time in which they must reach the final door at the very end of the room. Failing to reach said door before it closes completely will result in mission failure, though players can repeat the mission to try again if they fail.

If players successfully reach the last room before it closes, they will encounter a pedestal with an Ayatan Sculpture, collecting of which will complete the objective. Note that a player who has already acquired a Sculpture from their weekly mission will not receive any additional Sculptures should they join someone else's mission.


  • Ayatan Sculptures can spawn inside of a Cephalon Fragment.
  • Ayatan Sculptures and Stars appear on loot radar such as Mod TT 20pxLoot Detector, Mod TT 20pxThief's Wit and Mod TT 20pxAnimal Instinct. Sculptures have the standard resource/container marker, while Stars have their own unique icon.
  • Ayatan Sculptures and Stars can be scanned by either of the two available scanners and will trigger Helios scanning until their Codex entries are complete.  Like resource containers, they will only yield 10 affinity when scanned with a synthesis scanner.
  • When partially slotted the Sculpture will flicker between the powered and unpowered state, moving in a broken, stuttering fashion.
  • If you run out of amber stars first and want to get the most of them, the Endo value per amber star for the sculptures, according to the formula above, is as follows: Zambuka (1075), Orta (700), Vaya (633.33), Piv (616.67), Valana (583.33), Sah (566.67), Anasa (412.5).
  • Value per cyan star also follows the same pattern as amber stars, with Ayr (3x cyan) ranking the same as the Piv statue.
  • Generally, Orta, Vaya, Piv, and Ayr are best sold fully socketed, while the others can be sold incomplete with excess cyan stars. Anasa can also be sold fully unsocketed due to its high base value (2000).

Gathering TipsEdit

  • While the challenge rooms are not overly difficult after experiencing them a few times, players can make use of the TitaniaIcon272 Titania Warframe (in particular her Razorwing130xDark Razorwing ability) in order to trivialize the experience.
  • LimboIcon272 Limbo's Rift plane bypasses all the trap effects, and a Range-built Cataclysm130xDark Cataclysm can blitz the destructible ones to make way for other players.
    • As the sculptures have a chance of spawning in every mission, by spamming short maps (e.g. Mariana, Earth) with high-range AoE abilities (such as LimboIcon272 Limbo's Cataclysm130xDark Cataclysm) modded for range and efficiency, and utilizing a Sentinel with Mod TT 20pxVacuum, your minimap will show only the items that your companion doesn't take, like Ayatan Stars and Sculptures.
  • Using AoE weapons like GrineerFlameThrower Ignis modded for Punch Through, in conjunction with Mod TT 20pxThief's Wit, Mod TT 20pxLoot Detector, and Mod TT 20pxAnimal Instinct, can vastly increase the speed at which you gather Ayatan Stars and Sculptures.
  • Ayatan Sculptures spawn in the same locations as Syndicate Medallions, thus making Syndicate missions a good way of searching for them. While this by itself doesn't increase the chances of them spawning, players could already be searching every room for Medallions and destroying containers, hence potentially gathering up Stars and, occasionally, a Sculpture.
    • It is possible for both the Medallion and the Sculpture to spawn in the same spot.
  • Using mods like Mod TT 20pxMaster Thief or Mod TT 20pxScavenge can increase the drop rate of Ayatan stars. Although, it is not recommended to use both – their effects cannot stack.
  • The Infested Salvage mission (Oestrus, Eris) oddly has the same chance to have Sculptures as full-sized maps, despite being the same size as a Defense/Interception map. It has several container-ridden side rooms that may have a Sculpture, whereas Defense/Interception missions only have the beginning loot room.
  • Using Codex Scanner or Synthesis Scanner is a good way of spotting Ayatan sculptures. They will be highlighted in green or orange as other scannable objects such as containers and enemies.
  • Amber and Cyan stars have different waypoint icons. The star on Amber markers is larger than the one for Cyan stars.
  • Infested Tumors (Hive Sabotage) count as storage containers, making it possible for them to drop Ayatan Stars. However, due to their awkward placements in the environment, it's very likely that – if an Ayatan Star is dropped – it will get stuck inside of the walls, making it unobtainable.
  • Itzal´s Cosmic Crush can pull in Ayatan Sculptures as well as Stars. Useful in underwater tiles in Sealab.


  • Ayatana (Derived from the Sanskrit: आयतन) is a Buddhist term referring to the "Six senses" (the five basic senses, along with the mind) and the manas and the qualities perceived by them.
  • Old Man Suumbaat, an Ostron who lives in Cetus, possesses several Ayatan sculptures in his shop, two of which move on their own without Ayatan stars installed.
    • Among those animated sculptures is the then-unnamed Zambuka sculpture, which is prominently displayed on his table. It would take 2 real-time years, from Update 22.0 to Update 26.0, before players could acquire it for themselves.
  • In an interview with Ars Technica, Steve Sinclair explains that Ayatan treasures are said to store memories of the Orokin, which attests to their high value.
  • Zambuka is possibly an alternate spelling of "sambuca", commonly known as a Italian liquer but less well known, also the name of a triangular shaped ancient Greek stringed instrument.
