Unique Gem System and Primordial Stones

The Onyx Annulet features three sockets for Primordial Stones, which come in 25 varieties with varying effects. Your goal is to farm vault keys to open as many doors as possible every week, allowing you to collect these powerful Primordial Stones and socket them into your Onyx Annulet.

Zskera Vaults and Vault Keys

Zskera Vaults are on a weekly reset, and Zskera Vault Keys are BoA, so you can funnel them to your main character if you have Level 70 alts.

The Vault has three floors, each containing eight doors. Each door requires a key to open and contains an Elite NPC that must be defeated, a puzzle that you solve by opening other doors, or chests with various rewards, including Primordial Stones.
