Uses for UridiumEdit

Uridium is the most used currency in DarkOrbit due to many things and features using them, one of them being Shop. A recent addition that uses Uridium is Item Upgrading, which enables players to upgrade laser cannons, drones, and even the rocket launchers. But this does not come cheap, upgrading elite items costs Uridium to upgrade which increases every time an item is leveled up, maxing of at level 16. The Tech Center is another feature which requires Uridium to build Tech Items instantly or with 100% uridium for advantages in fights. But the most recent additions are the New ships which all three of them cost Uridium to purchase, although they are worth their price due to them having special abilities which give a major advantage in fights.

Most players resort to Trade when they want Uridium-based elite items. This is one of the best methods of earning these items without having to spend real money. You can find more information about Bidding and Trade Price Corner on their respective pages.
