Refined nth metal waiting to be picked up.

Nth Metal is the core reagent for upgrading Artifacts. Once player characters have acquired their first Artifact, they will be able to find Nth Metal as a rare drop from defeating NPCs. In addition, large caches of Nth Metal will become available by completing the Vault and the Stabilizer Event.

Nth Metal comes in various qualities, with rarer, more refined pieces granting larger amounts of Item Experience when used to fortify an Artifact in possession.

Nth Metal can no longer be used to fortify Adaptive and Origin Augments since mid-2020.

Obtained from[]

For the same type of Nth Metal, there are account bound (tradable to other characters on your account) and untradeable forms. Defeating NPCs gives the former, while Stabilizer Fragmentation and The Vault give the latter. Only the same form would stack.
