How to break pieces of obolite in Returnal/Using the Obolite repository
The Obolite repository is a device that exchanges Ether and Obolites with each other. Ether is used to cleanse evil items and you need to use the Reconstructor, which allows you to respawn from the last one you used when you die, rather than at the crash site you normally would.
To use the returning Obolith repository, tap Triangle to exchange 5 Ether for 200 Oboliths, or Square to exchange 300 Oboliths for 5 Ether.
This is useful, as any Ether you acquire while racing will stay with you when you respawn, unlike Obolites. As such, if you have a ton of Obolites in a single run and you find an Obolite Repository, we recommend swapping a few for Ether to use a Reconstructor in future runs.
