Taijitu detail

Taijitu is a secondary currency to chimes in The Arc, and is considered to be much more valuable. In conjunction with chimes, taijitu are used to purchase various upgrades and resources at the Waiko Reward Shop and Ports Reward Shop, run by Boni. One taijitu is also required for the Jed Hunter miniquest.

There are several ways to obtain taijitu, including:

Normally the taijitu are added directly to the currency pouch, but sources such as Motherlode Maw reward the item variant instead which can be clicked to add them to the pouch.

The best way to gather large amounts of taijitu is to repeatedly go on small voyages and look for treasure chests and taijitu on the ground. Picking up washed up supplies and other items on the ground can be used to get more chimes to buy supplies for more voyages from Rosie on Waiko.

Purchasing all items from the Waiko Reward Shop excluding the teleports and XP lamps costs Taijitu 354 taijitu.
