  • Because these last such a short time, you should scan until your chance of success is low before using this artifact, and then use it to increase chances again. Otherwise, most of the effect will be wasted.
  • Not everyone agrees with the above tactic, there are those who would prefer the initial advantage of (potentially) breaking through the cloak of a very good (albeit occupied) planet over the ability to scan a greater number of planets towards the end of a run.
