Universal Components or Basic Components are the Components used to provide the best structural reinforcement for a javelin's survivability. These components can be used by any javelin.
All Universal components will roll at most 2 Inscriptions. These inscriptions will always be Primary Inscriptions.
There are 10 lower and 10 upgraded Universal Components. When considering the rarity, the total number of universal components at their maximum power levels is 60.
Usual Obtaining Methods
Universal Components of all rarities can be obtained as loot drops randomly from defeated enemies. Universal specific components drop only when the Universal javelin is used. At least one masterwork component is guaranteed to drop from completing Legendary Missions or Legendary Contracts.
Universal Component Crafting
Crafting is available only to Common, Uncommon, Rare, and Epic components. Masterwork and Legendary Universal Components cannot be crafted.
To craft Universal Components, appropriate Blueprints must be unlocked by completing the appropriate Freelancer Loyalty challenges depending on the rarity of the blueprint: Freelancer Loyalty 1 or Freelancer Loyalty 2 or Freelancer Loyalty 3.
Legendary Universal Component Obtaining Methods
Seasonal Store can have a Legendary Component War Chest that can provide Legendary Universal Components at random for 5000 each. Minor Crystals are obtained by completing Seasonal Expeditions, Festive Challenges, and Daily, Weekly, and Monthly Path to Glory Challenges.
The War Chest is under rotation, so it is recommended to not spend the crystals unnecessarily.
By entering the Tomb of Yvenia while equipping any Javelin, and making the right offerings, a lancer can obtain random Legendary Universal Components. The offering requires Guardians Token and Crafting Resources. Each gift obtained is considered a Gift of the Forgewright.
All items received will have a rarity of Legendary, but the total number of embers vary depending on its rarity.The gifts can sometimes be Legendary Javelin Specific Support instead of Components due to randomness of the mechanism.
