Incense Crucible

Incense system[edit]

Sacrificial Knife (or Sacrificial Orb)

The crucible allows you to get more LP from self-sacrifice. Put the wood powder in the crucible and the Sacrificial Knife (or Sacrificial Orb) in the inventory start glowing. Now you can use "great self-sacrifice" by right-clicking with the knife in your hand. In this case, you will have only 10% of life, the rest will be sacrificed. From Wood Ash you get a bonus of 20%. For example, with 10 hearts without rune bonuses, you will get 9 * 200 * 1.2 = 2160 LP.

The multipliers of incense, from T1 to T5, are as follows:

Incense Bonus multipliers
Grid Wood Ash (Blood Magic).pngWood Ash 20%
Grid Byrrus.pngByrrus 60%
Grid Livens.pngLivens 120%
Grid Viridis.pngViridis 200%
Grid Purpura.pngPurpura 300%

To get the bonus from high-tier powder you need to get a bonus from all previous types of powder. Therefore, to get the maximum bonus you need to put 5 crucibles with all kinds of powder. Charging the bonus is not instantaneous and takes about 10 seconds on each crucible, while the burning animation is shown on the crucible (see picture). For example, with 10 hearts without rune bonuses, you will get 9 * 200 * 4 = 7200 LP.

An animation of the fire shows which crucible charges your knife.

If you put several crucibles with the same powder, then charging will go faster many times as many as these crucibles. One powder is enough for full 5 charges of a knife. If powder runs out in the crucible, it will emit black smoke. In addition, the great sacrifice has a 10 second cooldown. And the best option is to put 25 crucibles of 5 with each type of powder, so that a full charge takes 10 seconds.
