Lore[edit | edit source]

In the storyline quest Patterns in Time, the Explorers Guild's representative, a Korvax, uses Nanite Cluster manipulation to reveal to the player glimpses of their race's past. They suggest that these Clusters come from Sentinel casings.

Later in the same quest, the Merchants Guild's representative, a Gek, uses their pheromones to reveal to the player the truth behind the fall of the First Spawn. The enslaved Korvax entities sacrificed themselves in the spawning pools of Balaron and used the Nanite Clusters from their bodies to rewrite the biology of the Gek. This led to the downfall of the First Spawn Empire.

The Travellers often utilize and manipulate Nanite Clusters.

Additional Information[edit | edit source]

  • Nanite Clusters were introduced as a new currency in The Pathfinder Update.
