Inspirations temporarily boost your abilities. Each inspiration is represented by a colored square in your inspiration tray. If you hover the mouse over an inspiration, its name will pop up. By right clicking on an inspiration, you can learn more about it. There are seven types of inspiration, and each is available in three sizes: small, medium, and large.

The small version of each inspiration can be purchased from your contacts. Some are available immediately, and others only after you have completed some missions for that contact. Each inspiration costs 50 influence, except for Awakens, which cost 250. Inspirations can also be received from defeated enemies. Because they are dropped so frequently by defeated enemies, they are considered disposable and cannot be sold to stores. You can give an inspiration to another player by dragging it from your inspiration tray and dropping it on the other hero. Inspirations may also be traded using the trade window.

A level 1 hero can only carry four inspirations at a time. Higher level heroes can carry many more.

Note: The game originally contained Discipline inspirations, which granted resistance to status effect attacks, but could not be used after you were held, disoriented, or mezzed. In Issue 3, two new inspirations were added which protected you from different types of status effects, and which could be used while disoriented, held, or mezzed. In Issue 4, it looks like these will all be replaced with Break Free inspirations, which give resistance to all status effect attacks and which can be used while you are held.
