Tips Edit

  • As of Hotfix 17.0.2, Ophelia, Uranus is recommended to farm since it is an Archwing submersible mission where normal ground enemies can still drop Tellurium.

Trivia Edit

  • Tellurium (symbol: Te) is the 52nd element in the periodic table. Its in-game description alludes to the fact that Tellurium is believed to be more common in the universe than it is on Earth.
    • In real life, Tellurium is silver-white in color as opposed to red.
    • Some of the applications for Tellurium include Alloy Metallurgy, Semi-Conductors and Laser Optics. The latter may explain the Itzal's stealth mechanics and laser drones (as both Tellurium and the Itzal were introduced in the same update). 
  • It is currently one of the few resources that still uses the generic resource container model.
