Where is my IRC?
How do you earn them?
How do you spend them?
How much do bosses cost?
Expert Dungeons: Your first kill of each day of each dungeon boss will give you a ‘free’ loot roll. This will award you with Dungeon Currency, A Fragment and a Chance of Loot (Gear). On your second and all subsequent kills of that dungeon boss, you will get A Fragment and a Chance of Loot, you will need to spend an IRC to get the Dungeon Currency.
TDEM: You get 2 ‘free’ runs of TDEM each week before you need to spend IRC on the bosses. The Bosses will drop Intel (currency), Ethereal Shards (currency), 2 Fragments and a Chance of Loot (Gear & Tenebrean Engines). After your 2 free runs, a boss kill without spending IRC will give you a single Fragment and Intel (currency). You can spend IRC to increase the loot back to normal, the first and second bosses cost 2 IRC each, the third and fourth bosses cost 3 IRC each.
Tier 1 Raids: In T1 raids IRC is only used on the mini-bosses. These mini-bosses drop T1 quality earrings and rings. Just killing the mini-bosses will not lock you to the raid, you can kill them many times a week, each kill after the first will cost you IRC for a chance to loot an earring or ring. Most peeps will now get their earrings and rings from the VP boxes, so you wont find many groups farming these mini-bosses anymore. The proper bosses in T1 raids drop 2 gear items which can be distributed to anyone in the group (usually done by the raid leader or loot master).
Tier 2 Raids: Can be run once a week per character. There is a normal instance lock and no mini-bosses. IRC are not used in T2 raids. The bosses in T2 raids drop 2 gear items which can be distributed to anyone in the group (usually done by the raid leader or loot master).
Crafting Rifts: Crift lures are earned from doing the weekly crating quest picked up in Alittu at /setwaypoint 4030 6360 (pick the water one). Most peeps will join a group of 20 people, each bringing their own lure, the group will then pop 20 lures in a row. The first two crifts you do (weekly) will be free loot, you will receive a cache of crafting mats, along with a chance for Celestial Matrixes and Celestial Motes. After those first 2 rifts you will then need to spend IRC, 1 per rift, so for a full group you will want 18 IRC. Many peeps will use an alt character for spending IRC for crifts. Your character should be over level 65, you can post the crift lure to your alt then log that alt to join the crift group. Make sure you switch on sidekicking (right click your char portrait) to be sidekicked up to level 70.
Daily Raid Rifts: Each day you can complete each of the 3 raid rifts in Vostigar Peaks for ‘free’. At stage 3 and stage 5 you will have a chance to loot a planar essence. If you choose to close the same raid rift again on the same day then you will be asked to spend 1 IRC on stage 3 and another on stage 5. Spending the IRC will give you a Chance to loot a planar essence.
