The town’s waypoint is unlocked by default, but some prerequisites need to be met to use the portal.

This includes reaching World Tier 4, complete a Tier 46 (or higher) Nightmare Dungeon.

In addition, the Artificers’ Obelisk in Cerrigar must be activated to enter the Pit.

This uses the Runeshard token obtained from Whisper Bounties, Nightmare Dungeon, Helltides, or Legion Events.

Materials that you get from defeating the boss at the end of the Pit can be used to upgrade equipment with Masterworks at the locksmith.

This includes Obducite (Tier 1 to 20), Ingolith (Tier 21 to 40), and Neathiron.

The required materials depends on the equipment’s current rank.

In addition, materials can be transmuted through the Alchemist, offering a chance to exchange them for a cash that includes a lower grade of the materials you use.
