With these components you can upgrade your companions, make healing items, restore broken omega tech, upgrade your gear, ect, ect.

What you can build or upgrade is based entirely on your available components and whether or not you have a certain ‘recipe’. Which can be earned or purchased from NPCS. Found in Ancient Ruins.
