Resonant Elements are crafting materials used in Weapon Shaping, introduced in The Witch Queen.

All Resonant Elements except for Neutral Element were removed from the game in Version 4.1.0[1], after the end of the Season of the Risen. Neutral Element was renamed to Resonant Elements.


Resonant Elements are extracted from completed Deepsight Resonance weapons. Players can see their current Element counts using the Relic Tether inventory item, which can be claimed from the Relic Conduit. Un-extracted Deepsight Resonance weapons will also display the currently held amount of an Element on the tooltip for its associated trait.

Neutral Element is used for crafting all Weapon Perks and Intrinsics. All other Element types are used for crafting enhanced versions of the Traits they are associated with.

Types of Elements
