Hourglasses have ten rarity tiers: Common through Unique. The higher the rarity tier, the more $BIGTIME Tokens they can generate.

Acquiring $BIGTIME With Hourglasses

When equipped, Hourglasses allow players to acquire $BIGTIME Tokens while adventuring. The amount of $BIGTIME Tokens acquired increases depending on the number of equipped Hourglasses and their rarity.
$BIGTIME Token generation not only depends on the Rarity but also on a player’s skill and efficiency at playing the game — the harder the content, the more $BIGTIME Tokens they will collect.

Equipping Multiple Hourglasses

Players can spend Time Crystals to increase the number of Hourglasses equipped. Players can equip up to 5 Hourglasses at once.
