Drifter Intrinsics are a skill point system to enhance the Drifter's prowess in Duviri.

Intrinsics can be selected using the well of golden rings in the Dormizone and Teshin's Cave.

General[]

There are four main Intrinsic classes that the player can invest in, with each class having a max rank of 10: Combat, Riding, Opportunity, and Endurance.

Unlike Railjack Intrinsics, Drifter Intrinsics are not tied to Affinity and therefore not affected by Affinity Boosters.

Each Intrinsic rank gained rewards the player with 1,500 Mastery points. Ranking all four classes to rank 10 costs a total of 4,080 Intrinsics and awards 60,000 Mastery Rank experience.

There is no way to reallocate or respec points once invested.
