Magic SymbolsEdit

About Edit

Magic symbols are a collectible item spread throughout the world of Nehrim. There are ninety-nine in total - they are typically found at the end of dungeons and caves, but some are scattered throughout the open world. There is a statistic in the player journal that tracks how many magic symbols have been collected during a playthrough.

Collection Reward Edit

Upon collecting a magic symbol, the player receives experience points (EP) depending on the total found so far:

  • 0 - 9 → 50 EP
  • 10 - 19 → 150 EP*
  • 20 - 29 → 220 EP
  • 30 - 39 → 300 EP
  • 40 - 49 → 400 EP
  • 50 - 59 → 500 EP
  • 60 - 69 → 600 EP
  • 70 - 79 → 680 EP
  • 80 - 89 → 750 EP
  • 90 - 94 → 1000 EP
  • 95 - 99 → 2000 EP
  • 100 → 5000 EP**

*The message given for the 10th through 19th collected symbols erroneously states that the player received 50 EP - but the player still correctly receives 150 EP.

**Since there are only ninety-nine magic symbols placed in the game (the 100th was removed in error), this reward cannot actually be obtained legitimately without a patch (see Magic Symbols removed from the game, below).
