Orbs of True Knowledge are collectibles that can be picked up by you in the world. They are always accompanied by an Emerald Tablet, and many are also housed in Orb Rooms, which have hidden messages about the lore of the World when their basins are filled with specific contents.


The orb counter that appears alongside your stats in the HUD.

When first collected, they will give you a specific message depending on which Orb was collected and an accompanying spell, which also unlocks the spell for future runs. In all future runs, you will instead receive a slightly different message (referring to the Orb as a Familiar Orb of True Knowledge) and an Extra Max Health pickup (+25 ♥). Shortly after an orb is collected, an eerie sound will play with an accompanying ominous screen shake effect, hinting that something more is going on as well.

When at least one orb has been collected, a counter will appear below the wand mana or potion capacity bar indicating how many orbs have been collected. This counter does not appear until you have obtained at least 1 orb.

Kolmisilmä's health increases exponentially with each orb[1]; reaching 131,481 ♥ if all 11 orbs in the main world have been collected.

Orbs of Corrupted Knowledge

Parallel Worlds have an alternate version known as Orbs of Corrupted Knowledge. They always drop Cursed Extra Max Health pickups instead of a spell or Extra Max Health.


Secret orb

It is possible, but astronomically unlikely, to obtain a 34th orb from a randomly generated Great Treasure Chest, and 35-36 via Parallel Worlds. The message for the secret orb is This secret should not have been available for you.

There are only three guaranteed ways to obtain this orb:

  1. via kaliuresis's Noita Orb Atlas, which lets you find the correct X,Y coordinates for your own random seed.
    • (Note, if using the player.xml file to exact your coordinates, you must account for rounding (1200.6 => 1201).)
  2. via a set seed.
    • There are several known seeds which generate a 32nd orb in a naturally spawning chest in the Mines. This orb can be entity duped to reach 34 orbs without entering NG+. A complete list is here: https://pastebin.com/LMNH1ARS
  3. Alternatively, some seeds have orbs at conveniently accessible coordinates. This text walkthrough by kaliuresis explains the details: https://pastebin.com/raw/PSDpYsWY

Moon orb

In the game's code there is code to spawn an orb relating to the moon which grants Destruction and a message stating "Secrets of great undoing have been unlocked to you". It is likely that this orb was planned to be granted when you "opened" the moon but was later scrapped for an unknown reason.
