Acquiring Infinity modules
Upon entering infinity phase you gain access to another tab in the second floor of the workshop. At first only the left side called “infinity modules” is unlocked, here you purchase modules in the grid which lets you buy the next module(s) in that chain if any. Buying all of these is your first goal on infinity phase.
Income of the Phase
Early Infinity: by now you should have at least 1 t5 producer, for getting more money then a t5 you should be farming neutral nightmare (r11) at wave era 90b.
Mid Infinity: (refer back here once you are MT14) Once you get to mt14 you should get to infinity 1 on impossible chaos (r15), if you cannot survive up to wave 90b era 90b, keep farming neutral nightmare. Then start a new round and use critical wave jump to reach Era 90 billion and farm the enemies there.
Late infinity: (refer back here once you are starting to charge stones) When you hit 90/90 infinity 1's, you should push to high infinities (1M is enough for a decent charge speed). To do that you need to increase your wave acceleration factor for a few hours (based on your goal), then you push up through infinities, when you get all regions to infinity 1M or above, at factory you craft exotic producers/do a lot shipments and etc.

Infinity effects/modules explained
Infinity shield buffs: Enemies get increases stats for each infinity and stack with era shield with the formula of base * Era shield * (1+# of infinity) ex: infinity 1 enemies have double the stats of their era counter parts and inf 9 as 10x the stats of the era enemies.
Infinity damage: penetrates era and infinity shields, it is a type of damage not to be confused with the quantity infinite damage (meaning 1.8e308 damage) It is a if most of your damage consists of infinity damage then the hp buff of infinity shield and the getting /inf on hp era divider can be ignored. As for the modules themselves, most of them are terrible as they do damage in the 100ks, even if they penetrate shields the damage is so low that the modules are basically useless, Infinity splash is the only good source of infinity since it converts non infinity damage into infinity damage and it does neutral infinity damage so you'll want to maximize neutral boost in the museum in this phase.
infinity foundation: makes it so infinity type damage doesn't always instakill you, era damage shield isn't ignored so you can still take 1e300+ damage if you don't get /inf on era damage shield.
Era 1 completion
Now that you have all the infinity modules you can reach Era 1 on higher difficulties that were you weren't able to in era phase. mt13 and 14 don't unlock and software that speed up reaching Era 1 in modes you haven't reached it on so the most efficient goal now is finishing 90/90 Era 1, which is means for all 15 regions the endless mode of all 6 difficulties have a highscore of at least Era 1. The reason this is so important is because of the era software Wave Horizon and Wave Marathon, with 90/90 Era these software make your acceleration over 100 times faster. You may be worried about it taking a very long time because Era takes like 45 minutes at the beginning but each era you get will shorten the time it takes to get all the next era and the last few eras take only a few minutes and the total time is around 3-5 hours.
Pretty much any blueprint will work as long as it has enough good infinity modules but if you don't want to make your own you can use the one for 90/90 inf's in the next section.
Reaching MT14/Infinity 1 completion
Once your acceleration is as fast as possible you can quickly reach infinities for tiering up your military. You do not need to max out the era hp divider to infinity anymore but you will still need to reduce the damage to /inf. First do Region 1,2 and 3 on easy to get to mt13 and then do R4-9 and R11 for reaching mt14. Now, you have to repeat that grinding again for getting 90/90 Inf 1's, which same as 90/90 era 1 means for all 15 regions and 6 difficulties for each, endless mode has a highscore of at least infinity 1.
Surviving Era Damage Red Skull: Make a build comprising of as many block and attack slowing modules and as you can fit, blocks deny 100% of damage so it makes the era shields attack bonus not affect you (while the era shield has a red skull in damage, resistance and other non-100% damage mitigation does nothing with the exception of temporal barrier). You do not need infinity foundation because you're facing era enemies not donuts.
Penetrating Era hp Red Skull: As for the Era hp shield, there are many infinity modules that do instant kills or infinity damage (infinity splash is the only source of infinity damage that doesn't suck), which allows you to kill enemies pretty easily.
|Recommended build and Ai|
|This is a blueprint originally made by @Connecting on the fire sword studios discord, and modified by @coco to be more efficient. Works with t32-42 mods, and recommended disable order is electric>universal>darkness>light>water(disable era dmg shield after the 1st disable, then move down the order normally). DO NOT BUFF HP IN TRADING POST, YOU MAY DIE.

The Infinity Stones are a set of extremely powerful items that provide game-changing effects, and are the main focus of this phase. Your main objective is to charge each infinity stone, which simply takes time. When first accessing one of the stones, the times to charge it will be so large it is essentially impossible. However, these progress bars can be sped up in two ways: Increasing your infinity high scores for the provided regions, and purchasing Exotic Refinements (unlocked at MT13). Both are equally important, and Exotic Refinements are much more noticeable at lower infinities. They are permanent upgrades, meaning they are both worthwhile investments.
Collecting and Unlocking Stones
With the exception of Neutral being unlocked at 1m era, Infinity stones are collected by going to its respective region and killing a disabled enemy of that element while being at Infinity 1 or higher. The region where each element is found is very intuitive and I recommend guessing yourself.
|Locations to find Infinity Stones|
Air: High Mountain
Electric: Metallic Ruins
Darkness: Dark Realm
Once they're collected they will show up in the infinity board with some conditions before you can upgrade them, these conditions only need to be met once and the stones unlocked forever. All stones have the conditions of prestiging their respective laboratory experiments 3 times and have 50 essence in the 3rd tab of the Era Workshop.
|Unique Condition to Unlock Infinity Stones|
To charge a stone you will need to get a base value of 1 trillion (1e12) elemental energy, which can be reduced by purchasing the "Charge Required" exotic refinement. To get energy you have to wait for the top bar (charge) of the chosen stone to fill up, each time it fills you will get an amount of elemental energy which can be boosted by the bottom bar (production), the time it takes to charge can be reduced by the middle bar (speed)
the base time it takes for a bar to fill is equal to 8760 hours/sum of all your infinity highscores on the specific region for that bar, region depends on the stone and the bar
There are 6 exotic refinements:
Charge Required - Reduces the amount of elemental energy needed to fully charge the stone
Speed Bonus - Increases the amount of speed that is gained per bar completion
Production Bonus - Increases the amount of energy that is gained per bar completion
Charge Duration - Decreases the time it takes for the charge bar to fill
Speed Duration - Decreases the time it takes for the speed bar to fill
Production Duration - Decreases the time it takes for the production bar to fill
Speed bonus and production bonus increase how much each fill of production and speed bar boosts the charge bar, but are linear in their scaling which makes them really bad beyond the first 10-20 upgrades.
The duration exotic refinements reduce the base fill time of each bar by a multiplier, these are the exotic refinements you should actually focus on
Once a stone is fully charged it can be used on an infinity perk and then need to be charged again. After being used the speed and amount bonus that were stockpiled get reset. The ones that are in bold are highly recommended.
|List of Infinity Perks|
These use up all the charge and puts the stones on charging to perform a 1 time use function. These perks can be used infinitely with a couple exceptions, they display an "X" on the button if wont do anything, for instance if you want to use the water stone to finish a shipment but you don't have a shipment currently in progress.
|List of Use perks|
Earth: Refreshes all layers in the Mine
Water: Finishing the current shipment in the Shipyard
Fire, Earth, Electric: skips 400 hours of Factory Refinement
Nature, Light, Darkness: Resets the cooldown of town perk respec
Nature: Gives 250k Rubber in the Factory
Universal, Neutral, Darkness: Increases the tier of all Museum power stones by 1 (max of 50).
Neutral: Gives 1e30 town resources.
Neutral, Fire, Earth, Air, Water, Universal: Gives 1e45 town resources.
All stones: Gives 1e60 town resources.
When started, Toggle Perks doesn't use up the charge but it makes the stone not be able to be used on anything else. They last until you turn them off and then they will lose the charge and start recharging.
|List of Toggle perks|
Air: Turns the Trading Post trade refresh timer into a button.
Neutral: Turns the Museum Offshore Market stock change timer into a button.
Air, Water: Forces good weather, takes around 20 minutes for it to take effect.
Electric: Multiplies the Powerplant's power capacity by 1 million
Universal: Multiplies Resources dropped from enemies by 10k, does not affect transmute and wave resources.
Universal, Any Element: Multiplies damage of that element by 1 trillion.

Unlock perks use up the charge and put the stones on charging for a permanent buff.
|List of Unlock perks|
Fire, Earth, Electric, Universal, Darkness, Light: Multiplies processing speed of all machines in the factory (including belt) by 10.
Fire, Electric, Air, Nature, Darkness: Makes you get 2 skill points per level, applies to levels gotten before unlocking this perk.
