## Notes[edit]

- The Mist Attunement description incorrectly states it awards additional Bag of Fractal Relics, when it actually awards Pouch of Fractal Relics (5 relics instead of 15).

- Collecting 160,000 Fractal Relics will take you
**889 days**when you gather 180 relics per day from tier 4 dailies and reselling unused potions, or**276 days**when you gather 580 relics per day, including 400 relics from challenge modes. - Collecting 3,200 Pristine Fractal Relics will take you

- Gold cost

- The total gold (opportunity) cost for the required Stabilizing Matricies and +1 Agony Infusions (plus upgrades) will total somewhere between 3,500 and 4,000 , depending on fluctuating prices and how many are gathered during the above process vs how many need to be purchased.
- The opportunity cost of using the Fractal Relics, Pristine Fractal Relics, and Fractal Research Pages is even more difficult to estimate, with nearly all of their uses involving account-bound items. At worst, Fractal Relics may be turned into Spirit Shard via Dessa's Experiment Journal and used for item promotion in the Mystic Forge, giving each relic a (very) approximate value of 50 , with a total liquid value of 900 - 1000
