[Guide] Crystal Core Refinement



  • The Crystal Core was a new feature that was introduced in Patch 23 where it grants the character additional stats.

    You will need to have reached Lv.50 on Character and also accept the quest "Lvl 50 Unknown Ore" from <Ore Appraiser> Stringy.

    You can find him in Vitreus Mines at approx. (X: 758, Y 228) (see the yellow questionmark).

    Understanding the interface:

    holycrystal05.png To open the Crystal Core interface, open your [Backpack] and press the "Gear Evolution" icon, the Crystal Refinement tab should show up as the second tab on the window.
    holycrystal04.png Equip your holycrystal-crystal.png <Holy Energy Crystal> for the interface to show up.

    1. Shows the general information:
    - Crystal Type: All-Around (the default one unless a certain Nuclei has been inserted)
    - Total Level: 0/10 (shows the amount of levels)
    - Crystal Energy Release: 1/2/3/4 (refers to each 10th level)

    2. Shows the total amount of points received from each level of refinement

    3. After every 10th level, an ability will be unlocked. They grant various stats that benefits your gameplay.

    4. Provides a list of all possible reshuffling options that you can get per level. Always look out for the choices you can get before rerolling—it will save you assumptions and guessing on the max possible potential.

    Resetting a stats:

    holycrystal06.png 1. Select a holycrystal-reset.png <Holy Energy Crystal> and equip your Crystal Core. You will see that the interface is slightly altered from the general view. Now click on the dropdown box near where it says "Reset Attributes" and select the stats you would like reset. In this example, we will select to reset "Evasion".
    holycrystal07.png 2. A popup window will appear to confirm that you wish to proceed with resetting the attribute. You will see that the Evasion is currently at +6. Press "Confirm" to continue.
    holycrystal08.png 3. The reset is complete! As the Evasion had +6 earlier, all those points have now reset and you may refine the Crystal Core again as you wish until it hits a dead end.





    Visual Appearance:

    holycrystal09.png The Crystal Core will float on your character's left side in the shape of a pyramid facing upside down. Depending on the Nuclei inserted, it will change its' color.
    (Holy Crystal Nuclei Attack is visible in the screenshot.)
    holycrystal10.png To hide the Crystal, simply open [Character Info] interface and untoggle the circular icon to hide its' appearance.
