How to Get Crystals in Season of Conquest
Apart from farming crystals via Crystal Mine, there are several ways to get crystals to a great length. Below we will explain how to get crystals:
- Eve of the Crusade
- Alliance Territory
- Forts and Barbarians
- Kahar the Hidden
Eve of the Crusade
One of the easiest way to farm crystals quickly is to do it during the Eve of the Crusade event. This event happens before entering Season of Conquest map. Players can secure at least one place in the top 1,000 to get some crystals that will have a big boost in the beginning of the KvK event.
Another way to get crystals is through exploration. It is done the same way you would dispatch scouts to explore the map and obtain rewards. The cave chests have three type of rarities: Low, Medium, and High.
All three types have a chance to give crystals along with various items depending on rarity. Furthermore, the villages have a small chance to give you some crystals. So make sure to explore them!
You also can take advantage of the Bastions, which is structures of commanders that appear during the Season of Conquest event. This is another great way to take advantage to increase your crystals pool.
Whenever your alliance or coalition links the territory with these Bastions, they will grant a series of missions that offer rewards of Crystals and Favors. Each time Bastion levels up through favor, your crystal mine work speed goes up which is a win-win situation.
|Crystal Mine Work Speed|
|Favor||Epic Commander||Legendary Commander|
|Level 2||+1.5 %||+2%|
|Level 3||+3 %||+ 4%|
|Level 4||+4.5 %||+ 6%|
|Level 5||+ 6 %||+ 8%|
|Level 6||+7.5 %||+10%|
|Level 7||+9 %||+ 12%|
|Level 8||+10.5 %||+14%|
|Level 9||+ 12 %||+16%|
|Level 10||+ 15 %||+20%|
If the coalition manages to capture all 14 Bastions, 7 Legendary and 7 Epic, they will have the potential to increase the Crystal Mine work speed by an impressive 245%. This is a major stat advantage for any coalition that are successful in capturing all the Bastions.
During the KvK event, the alliances will have the opportunity to construct an Alliance Crystal Field. This powerful resource spot will provide the alliance members with all the resources they need to build flags and fortresses for the alliance.
The Alliance Crystal Field produce a decent amount of crystals that can be claimed by the alliance members. Be sure to take advantage of this to increase the crystal flow.
Forts and Barbarians
If you love to play an offensive style such as the Vikings civilization and want to pair up with excellent barbarian commanders to level up. Destroying the barbarian camps and chain-farming barbarians can give you crystals along with normal rewards!
Kahar the Hidden
Governors also can get crystals by defeating Kahar the Hidden. This barbarian commander can be summoned via Kahar’s Bone Whistle.
Upon defeating Kahar the Hidden, you will get awesome rewards as well as a number of crystals. The amount of crystals dropped by Kahar can be increased through technology advancement via Crystal Research Center.
And lastly, you can get crystals by purchasing bundles through the Supply Depot. We strongly recommend everyone to purchase Premium Season Crystal Supply which gives you +50% crystal mine work speed.
Additionally, you log in everyday to claim 60,000 crystals for a total 3,000,000 crystals.
Each time you level up Crystal Mine and Crystal Research Center, the bundles will appear at certain levels for one hour. These bundles are completely optional if you rather not to spend any money. Then by all the means, let them go. But they are pretty helpful for researching expensive crystal technologies.
