The Ore Prometium

Overview[edit | edit source]

Prometium is the most common ore found in DarkOrbit and is a common mission requirement for newer players. It is red and is the least valuable of the basic ores. It can be used in refining to create Prometid.

Note that Prometium and Promerium are very different ores and should not be confused with each other.

Obtaining Prometium[edit | edit source]

Prometium can be obtained by:

  • Collecting Prometium rocks floating in space, in various maps including X-1 and X-2. Each rock provides 1 unit of Prometium.
  • Collecting the cargo boxes dropped by destroyed ships (both friend and foe) and aliens.
  • Building the Prometium module in the Skylab. (This will cost some Prometium to create and upgrade further).

Tips/Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Collecting Prometium on X-1 and selling it at your base can be a good way to start earning Credits.
  • Once you've earned a few credits and bought some basic equipment: as each rock provides only 1 unit of Prometium, and even a Streuner provides 10 units of Prometium and Endurium, it's normally only worth collecting rocks for quests.

Please note this method is a very slow process and there are better ways to produce credits.

  • Prometium sells for a value of 10 Credits per unit.
  • Prometium is actually a real metal in real life.
  • You can complete these missions by collecting destroyed alien cargo boxes.
