Crystal Chunk is one of the rare things that you are able to find in the Genshin Impact game. Crystal chunk can be used for crafting other items. If you want to obtain crystal chunks, you need to know the locations where they spawn and also the respawn time of them. Here, we will inform you about it and also other things that you need to know about Crystal Chunk.
The Locations of Crystal Chunk
Usually, Crystal Chunks can be found inside caves, mines, and near mountainous terrain. You are able to find Crystal Chunk in some areas including Qingce, Guyun, Stormbearer Point, Stormterror’s Lair, Mt. Aozang Cave, Lingju Pass Entrance and Qingyun Peak. If you want to farm Crystal Chunks in this game, you have to hit Stormterror’s Lair and all over Qingyun Peak, in case you are able to work out an efficient route between all of those icons.
Some of the thicker places to get Crystal Chunks are in the south of Qingce village. There, you are able to find five ore deposits next to each other. On the map, there are just clustered north of the river from Mt. Aozang. You can see that the icons overlap each other.
The Respawn Time of Crystal Chunks
The normal respawn time of Crystal Chunks is 72 hours. However, they can be forced to spawn in Mining Outcrops alongside Magical Crystal Chunks. When Crystal Chunks are broken, 1 to 3 crystals will drop from the chunk. The drop and its amount is unique to each player who sees it. However, it can be affected by gravity and loose-item-affecting abilities.
What is Crystal Chunk?
Crystal Chunk in Genshin Impact is a blue crystal which is usually used in forging and some alchemy recipes. You are able to obtain them in the wild. But, if you obtain them through expeditions, you are able to yield a couple per team.
Now, Crystal Chunks are the rarest non-elemental crystals in the game. So, for farmers, a Crystal Chunk map is a useful tool. With Crystal Chunks, you are able to make certain rare equipment and materials and you will need a lot of them.
How to Get Crystal Chunk?
If you want to get Crystal Chunk, you are able to do that by mining in the Genshin Impact’ open world. How to mine them? You are able to go to the locations which we have mentioned above and then you need to search for deposits of the shiny teal crystals. However, it is important for you to know that they are not easy to find even once you are in an area where they spawn. Why? It is because they are a higher value crafting material.
You are able to use your Elemental Sight to help you find them. When Elemental Sight is active, all ore will glow orange and when you find a deposit, you have to smash it to be able to get your Crystal Chunks. It will be better for you to use a Claymore character because they are able to destroy ore faster than the characters which use other weapons.
Expeditions is another way that you are able to do to obtain Crystal Chunk. If the Adventure Rank 14 has been reached by you, you will be able to have access to Expeditions in the Adventurer’s Guild. By using expeditions, you are able to send characters which are not in your party off for 4, 8, 12 or 20 hours to get extra rewards for you. If you can go for longer, you are able to get the better reward. This is a way that you can do to farm Crystal Chunk passively.
In the Whispering Woods, Dadaupa Gorge, and Yaoguang Shore, you are able to find mining Expeditions. If you are able to send characters on 20 hour Expeditions to these mining areas, they will go back with some Crystal Chunk between 6 and 8.
