The Primal Crystal is a Resource in the Expansion Map Crystal Isles.

Overview[]

  • Used to raise baby Crystal Wyvern and Imprint upon them, also restoring 350 hunger points upon consumption. It should be noted that Primal Crystal is the only food a Crystal Wyvern will take before the adult stage. Baby, juvenile, and adolescent Crystal Wyvern will not eat raw or cooked meat.
  • Used as a tribute for summoning Crystal Wyvern Queen. Due to its spoil time, it is highly advised to only gather them when its time to fight the boss.

They can be gathered by knocking out wild Crystal Wyvern or their Heir counterpart and pressing the use key (E by default on PC) to harvest the crystals from their bodies while unconscious. Another way to harvest Primal Crystals, although is not recommended due to its difficulty, is to kill an Alpha Blood Wyvern. When killed an Alpha Blood Wyvern will drop around 20-30 Primal Crystals. Spoiling time in Crystal Wyvern about 6h.

Spoiled Primal Crystal reverts to Crystal.

Notes[]

  • Ensure you have at least a few of Primal Crystal in hand before attempting to raise Crystal Wyvern, as their drop rate are low.
  • Placing Primal Crystals Into Crystal Wyvern's Inventory will increase their spoil timer.
  • You gather less Primal Crystals from Heirs.
