    Acquisition

    The Atlas is divided into 8 regions. Each region of the Atlas has 4 Watchstones in different colours, corresponding to 4 Conquerors of the Atlas:

    Boss Colour Watchstone
    Al-Hezmin, the Hunter Viridian Green Viridian WatchstoneViridian WatchstoneThe memories and emotions of countless victims of
    the Elder, locked in stone for eternity.
    Baran, the Crusader Crimson Red Crimson WatchstoneCrimson WatchstoneThe memories and emotions of countless victims of
    the Elder, locked in stone for eternity.
    Drox, the Warlord Golden Yellow Golden WatchstoneGolden WatchstoneThe memories and emotions of countless victims of
    the Elder, locked in stone for eternity.
    Veritania, the Redeemer Cobalt Blue Cobalt WatchstoneCobalt WatchstoneThe memories and emotions of countless victims of
    the Elder, locked in stone for eternity.

    Players are required to beat the bosses in their citadels of that region in order to acquire the Watchstones. However, if the Watchstone of that region of that boss was acquired already, beating the same boss again will not give the second copy of the Watchstone of that region.

    Additionally, the Final Conqueror, Sirus, Awakener of Worlds, drops unique Ivory WatchstoneIvory WatchstoneThe memories and emotions of countless victims of
    the Elder, locked in stone for eternity.
    .

    Functions

    By inserting the Watchstones into the altar of the citadel of a region, Map Tier will be increased. For example Beach MapBeach MapMap Level: 69
    Map Tier: 2
    Guild Character: X
    A paradise, forever replenished by endless waves teeming with life.Travel to this Map by using it in a personal Map Device. Maps can only be used once.
    has tiers 1, 4, 8, 10 and 14 depending on how many Watchstones inserted in that region. Unique Watchstones provides additional modifier to the Atlas.

    Sextants can be apply to Watchstone , which the player can swapping Watchstone for desired sextant mod.

    Moreover, Awakening Level of the Atlas will be increased, depends on number of socketed Watchstone (Number of socketed Watchstones divided by 4, then round down to nearest integer). Since there is 8 sets of Watchstones, the highest possible level of the Awakening Level will be 8.

    Note: while the side-panel on the left in the atlas provides a space to store watchstones, the watchstones stored within the panel have no effect on the atlas. In order for a watchstone to affect the atlas, it must be socketed within the relevant area in the citadel.

    Number of socketed Watchstones Awakening Level
    0-3 0
    4-7 1
    8-11 2
    12-15 3

    Version history

    Version Changes
    3.10.0
    • Conqueror presence and their influence mechanics are now spawned deterministically, with progress between each influenced map tracked on the Atlas itself. You can see this on the lefthand side of the Atlas panel, connected to the Watchstone inventory.
    • You can now clearly see which Watchstones have Sextants applied to them when they are in the Watchstone inventory.
    • Added a short Watchstone tutorial which takes you through how to use and store your Watchstones.
    • The Awakening Level of your Atlas is now the number of Watchstones you have socketed, divided by 4, and rounded down. In other words, you will now gain Awakening Levels gradually, rather than only when you fill a Watchstone Altar.
    • Unique Watchstones always drop with a number of uses that is a multiple of 3.
    • You can now search for Watchstones with Sextants in the Atlas' search bar.
