The Flux is a special area that is available only to players that have completed current game content. Inside The Flux you get the opportunity to meet the Avatars of DJArts game developers.
The Flux is accessible only when there is no new storyline content available. You must have completed last area which has storyline content and gone through its exit gate. Currently, this area is Sanctuary Village .
A major update will relocate The Flux to the end of the new content. Players located in The Flux when new content is released will be automatically moved to The Commons, to an Area zone with a teleporter or where an unfinished Quest will resume.
On November 21st, 2014 the Flux was "Remixed", allowing players to visit (and collect trinkets from) previous fluxes. It also allowed them to turn older sets of trinkets into Flux Dust. Read about all the changes here.

The Flux contains a special puzzle field designed to keep the interest of players that have reached the end of the currently available game content.
If you are working on a Flux puzzle at the time of a new content push, don't worry, you'll be able to pick up on your puzzle where you left off as soon as you reach the end of the new content.
When you have reached The Flux and you have heard of an imminent release of new content, you can setup your Flux puzzle so that upon your next entry into The Flux, you can immediately get a brand new Flux trinket.
Chests do not maintain between Fluxes (the tech does not support that, unless the Flux is the same zone, which it hasn't been since the Evergreen Forest). The only way to get a chest as soon as you reach a new Flux is if you have all the puzzle pieces but haven't solved the puzzle yet.
Flux Puzzle RewardsEdit
Successfully completing this difficult puzzle rewards one of eight rare Flux Trinkets. This Flux Trinket set is only available while The Flux is active. If you failed to acquire the entire set of eight trinkets in a previous Flux, you now can go back to it and collect all of them. However, going back levels the previous fluxes to match the current flux, so flux 1.0 will have the current level for bushes/critters not 1-2 as when it was originally active. A collection of 8 trinkets from the same flux can be traded for flux dust.
Flux trinkets are identical in appearance to the regular Trinkets you find in the game, but they have improved attributes over their counterparts. There are currently two types of descriptors that a Flux trinket can have:
- (Uncommon) - Uncommon trinkets are better than their common counterparts by one step. For example, the Soft Feather trinket increases movement by 30% while Flux Soft Feather (Uncommon) increases it by 35%.
- (Rare) - Rare trinkets are typically two, and in some cases three, steps superior to the common version of the trinket. For example, the Flux Twig Wand (Rare) increases the odds to drop mana by 35, 15 points greater than the common version.
Flux Dust Edit
As mentioned above, a complete set of 8 trinkets from the same flux can be traded for 8 flux dust, which was introduced to the game on Friday November 21st, 2014. You also get 1 flux dust when you complete a puzzle after you have found all the trinkets for that flux. You can spend flux dust at The Flux Store, where you can purchase a variety of interesting items, included the Super Trinket.
