Void Traces are a resource found in Void Fissures, used to refine Void Relics or create Dragon Keys.

AcquisitionEdit

Void Traces are primarily obtained by collecting Reactant, which occasionally drops from Corrupted enemies (including those who turn Corrupted during the mission) provided there is a Void Fissure present. Reactant is collected to crack open a Void Relic, but Reactant will drop regardless, whether the player has a Void Relic equipped or not.

Players can collect up to 10 Reactant during the mission (and is required to open a Void Relic, if one is present). Once enough Reactant is collected, 6-30 Void Traces are rewarded and the Relic, if equipped, is opened. Additionally, a player can receive 5 bonus Void Traces should a teammate choose their Relic's artifact. Up to 15 bonus Void Traces can be collected by this method.


Unlike most resources, there is an upper limit to how many Void Traces a player can stockpile. This cap is determined by one's Mastery Rank using the formula: (Mastery Rank × 50) + 100. For example, a Mastery Rank 13 player can only hold up to 750 Void Traces at maximum. Normally, gained excess Void Traces are discarded. Excess Void Traces reclaimed upon defeating a Kuva Lich are kept.

UseEdit

Currently, Void Traces can be used for the following:

  • Dragon Key crafting, which requires 10 Void Traces per key.
  • Void Relic refinement to increase the odds of acquiring rarer rewards (25, 50 or 100 per relic, depending on the level of refinement).

TipsEdit

  • If you are low on Void Traces but want to save your Relics, run a Fissure mission with no Relic equipped. You'll still earn Void Traces from collecting 10 Reactant as normal, but you won't be able to gain any bonus Traces from other players choosing your reward (as you will not receive one).
  • Resource Boosters and the Smeeta Kavat's Mod TT 20pxCharm 120 sec Resource Buff both affect the amount of Void Traces rewarded.
Final Void Trace reward = v × 2r × 2w × (1+0.25 × b) × 2c + p
v = integer of unboosted Void Trace reward (min 6, max 30)
r = integer of regular Resource Booster (inactive 0, active 1)
w = integer of Resource Weekend Booster (inactive 0, active 1)
b = integer of bonus Resource Boosters received in Endless Void Fissure missions (min 0, max 4)
c = integer of Charm Resource Buffs active when picking up the 10th Reactant (min 0, max 5)
p = integer of other players selecting your reward (min 0, max 15)
The theoretical maximum is 7,695 Void Traces from one Relic; however the odds against having 5 Charm Resource Buffs active when cracking a Relic are astronomical, as even having 2 of them active at once is rare. On top of that, the maximum Void Trace storage is currently capped at 1,500 Void Traces with MR 28.

Patch HistoryEdit

Hotfix 25.1.1
  • Added Alias’ (both yours and squadmates) to the Reward selection screen so that it’s clear who is picking which Reward (yourself included) and where the bonus Void Traces are going.
  • Moved the Void Traces information to be directly below the Refinement options for better visibility in the Refinement screen.

Update 25.0

  • Increased the base amount of Void Traces granted when your Relic is chosen from 1 to 5.

Update 22.3

  • We have slightly re-balanced the quantities of some of the rewards as we tested numerous Bounties with these changes. Right now this only applies to select items. Plains of Eidolon specific reward quantities are untouched (i.e it could be possible to get 25 x Breath of the Eidolon in a single 5 Stage Bounty or 6 Cetus Wisps in a 5 Stage Bounty).
    • Cryotic and Oxium are now in various tables, replacing Void Traces in some cases.

Hotfix 22.1.1

  • Fixed Void Traces not being obtained if the last Reactant you pick up is with your Operator.

Hotfix 22.0.7

  • Higher level bounties will offer Kuva and Void Traces.

Hotfix 22.0.3

  • Removed Ayatan Stars and Uncommon Resources from High Level Bounties and replaced with 100x Void Traces. Low Level Bounties will continue to have rewards that target interests of a newer player who might not have some Mods that veterans do.

Hotfix 20.0.6

  • Void Trace Alerts will now grant 20 Traces instead of 10 Traces.

Update 19.0

  • Every Relic opened will result in Traces!

Update: The Silver Grove 3.0

  • The Void is now an eligible region for Alerts! Alerts that occur in the Void will have a chance to include Void Traces as a reward!

Hotfix: Specters of the Rail 13

  • Void Traces cap is now Mastery Rank based (100 + 50 * MR).
  • *Traces are given when you get 10/10 Reactant (no relic needed) and rewarded at End of Mission (between a range of 6-30).

Hotfix: Specters of the Rail 7

  • Fixed Clients not being given bonus Void Trace when other players choose their reward at the mission complete screen.

Hotfix: Specters of the Rail 6

  • Fixed hosts getting (n^2) bonus Void Traces when (n) people pick their reward, instead of just getting a bonus of (n). We are still looking into the Client issue affecting this system.

Hotfix: Specters of the Rail 1

  • Tweaked the visuals of Void Traces.
  • Fixed an issue with Clients not properly receiving their Void Trace bonus when their Void Relic reward.

Update: Specters of the Rail

  • Introduced.
    • Dragon Keys will now require 10 Void Traces to craft instead of Void Keys.

Last updated: Hotfix 25.7.7
