Gathering Tips[edit | edit source]

  • Copernics are significantly more common in Empyrean than in the Orokin Moon tileset.
  • Kuva Lich and Arbitrations missions can spawn Eximus units more often as a result of their higher level, allowing for easier farming.
  • Any Endless mission types on Lua is a great source for Eximus units, with higher waves spawning more Eximus units.
  • Copernics may be dropped as an end mission reward of Railjack missions at amounts of 1200, 1500 or 2700 depending on luck. (Empyrean Rewards)

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • When running Empyrean missions to farm Copernics, all Copernics, Carbides, Cubic Diodes, and Pustrels are stored in the Railjack's Resource Forge in order to manufacture consumable items. The Forge holds a default of 200 of each resource, after which additional gathering is automatically distributed to the squad, until the mission is completed. Pressing the "Refine" button from one of the Forge station will distribute the resources to the entire squad.
  • Although being a Void tileset resource, Copernics seem to have a very low drop chance, even lower than Argon Crystals. It is advised to use resource boosters while farming them outside of Railjack missions.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

Patch History[edit | edit source]

Update 29.10

  • Removed from Railjack drop tables.

We wanted to reduce the number of Resources we introduced in our original Railjack launch. They'll remain in your Inventory as we’ll be looking at possibly reintroducing them at a later date. All Blueprints that required these items have been updated to reflect viable Resources, and respective drops have been swapped to Ticor Plate where appropriate. These Resources have also been removed from Helminths Bile Feeding menu. If you spot any mentions of these Resources that we might have missed please let us know!

For Tenno who have partially contributed these Resources to Wreckage, the percentage of your contribution will be honoured for the Resource that replaces it. Ex: If you contributed 60% of the needed Copernics for a Carcinnox, that 60% contribution will be carried over when the Blueprints are updated.

Hotfix 28.0.5

  • Fixed Corpernics description to their updated drop locations.

Update 28.0

  • Removed Copernics from Mining Nodes on the Orb Vallis and added to Eximus enemies in the Lua tileset.

Update 27.0

  • (Undocumented) Can now drop from the Void.

Update 26.1

  • Introduced.
