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

Overview[edit | edit source]

  • Used to raise baby Crystal Wyvern and Imprint upon them, also restoring 400 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 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.

Spoiled Primal Crystal reverts to Crystal.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • 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.
