Data Disc is a special relic item used for discovering new assembly diagrams in the Research Center or during missions, and also for trading and gifting.

Obtaining Edit

Data Discs can most commonly be found by mining in any Abandoned Ruins. They cannot be tracked through the relic scanner, but may sometimes be bundled inside boxes with other relics.

Data Discs can also occasionally be found by breaking wooden crates in the Hazardous Ruins and in Amber Island's Cave.

The player may also receive some Data Discs in the mail as a monthly Workshop Ranking reward.

Usage Edit

Data Discs are often used in missions, required to be given to Petra in Portia's Research Center for new blueprints. They are also used for trading and gifting.

Disc recoveryEdit

Data Discs can be given to Petra when she is inside the Research Center to obtain new assembly diagrams. They are also used to obtain the diagrams over the course of a number of main and secondary missions. The diagrams are received in random order, and what the player receives in the mail can neither be predicted nor changed by reloading the day that the player receives a diagram.
