An integral part of Vomvalysts and Teralysts, the exact function of this... device? Organ? is uncertain.
Sentient Cores are Sentient objects that can be traded in for Standing with The Quills in Cetus. Intact Sentient Cores are dropped by Eidolon Vomvalysts while Exceptional Sentient Cores are dropped by Eidolon Teralysts, Eidolon Gantulysts and Eidolon Hydrolysts on the Plains of Eidolon, one for each Teralyst Synovia that is destroyed. They appear as white and blue orbs that float above the ground, lit up by a blue aura that makes them more visible, and marked with HUD icons much like Ayatan Stars. A Flawless Sentient Core is dropped upon successfully capturing (not defeating) a Teralyst, Gantulyst, or Hydrolyst while it is tethered by the required number of Eidolon Lures; both the Shards and the Flawless Core will be dropped by the Lures upon self-destruction, not by the Eidolon itself.
Redeeming these Cores will gain Standing with The Quills. Each Intact Core grants 250 Standing 250, each Exceptional Core grants 750 Standing 750, and each Flawless Core grants 1,500 Standing 1,500. Intact Cores are also used as sacrifices for ranking up with The Quills: 10 are required to attain the Mote title and 20 are required to attain the Observer title.
Sentient Core Standing + Blueprint Changes (NEW since the initial Dev Workshop)
In addition to the already noted changes to Amps and Ore/Gems, we’ve included an increase to Sentient Core Standing return and also modified the Exceptional Sentient Core Conversion Blueprint. Those starting out on their Quills journey should find this allows them to progress through the Syndicate faster to reach the higher tier Offerings.
Increased Standing return from Sentient Cores:
Intact Sentient Core Standing return from 100 to 250
Exceptional Sentient Core Standing return from 500 to 750
Flawless Sentient Core Standing return from 1200 to 1500
Sentient Cores now drop from Conculysts, Battalysts, and Decaying variants. They will drop either an Exceptional (25%) or Intact (75%) Sentient Core. This allows for progression with the Quills outside of the Plains of Eidolon!
