Magical Crystal Ore

Introduction

Once you’ve successfully achieved Adventure Rank 30, as well as Reputation Rank 2 in both Mondstadt and Liyue, you’ll unlock something called Magical Crystal Ore, which will begin randomly spawning at various locations in Teyvat on a daily basis.

In addition to the Magical Crystal Ore that will spawn at these outcrops, regular Crystal Ore will spawn alongside it at the same outcrop locations as well.

Due to the volume of how many Weapon Experience Crystals are needed to ultimately get weapons fully built out (it takes 600 Mystic Enhancement Crystals to get a 4-star weapon to Level 90, and a staggering 903 Mystic Enhancement Crystals to get a 5-star weapon to Level 90), it can be helpful to make regular runs of the Magical Crystal Ore deposits, as they provide a daily intake of these resources for the discerning Traveler.

In this guide, we’re going to walk through the mechanics of how Magical Crystal Ore deposits spawn, and how to farm them.

Core Mechanics

Magical Crystal Ore will spawn daily at six different locations in Mondstadt, and 10 different locations in Liyue. The spawn spots tend to follow a general pattern of locations, with the following noteworthy exceptions:

  1. If one Magical Crystal Ore deposit spawns in Stormterror’s Lair in Mondstadt, the remaining five in Mondstadt will also spawn in Stormterror’s Lair.
  2. Similarly, if one Magical Crystal Ore deposit spawns in or around Qingyun Peak in Liyue, the remaining nine in Liyue will also spawn in the general vicinity of Qingyun Peak as well.

It should be noted that all of the Magical Crystal Ore potential spawn locations outside of Stormterror’s Lair and Qingyun Peak will normally have (assuming that they’ve been allowed to respawn, per their normal respawn interval) 1-3 regular Crystal Ore if they don’t happen to be the spot that Magical Crystal Ore spawned at for that day. Because of this, it can be worthwhile to simply check all of the potential spawn locations for this ore if you’re running a 3-4 day rotation on your crystal runs instead of a daily rotation.

Mondstadt

There are three potential spawn locations in Eastern Mondstadt.

There are five potential spawn locations in Southwestern Mondstadt.

There are three potential spawn locations in Northwestern Mondstadt.

For Stormterror’s Lair, there are six spawn locations. Remember that if one deposit spawns here, the remaining five will be here as well.

To find out the specifics of where the Magical Crystal Ore spawned at, there are four individuals that you can talk to who can mark the spawn locations on your map.

Note that between all four individuals, they may not give you all six of the Mondstadt locations. In the event this happens, please refer to the above possible spawn location points for manual investigation.

Liyue

For the Qingyun Peak general vicinity, there are 13 spawn locations. Remember that if one deposit spawns here, the remaining nine will as well. The area is a bit broad.

There are ten potential spawn locations in South Liyue.

There are five potential spawn locations in Guyun Stone Forest.

To find out the specifics of where the Magical Crystal Ore spawned at, there are four individuals that you can talk to who can mark the spawn locations on your map.

Note that between all four individuals, they may not give you all ten of the Liyue locations. In the event this happens, please refer to the above possible spawn location points for manual investigation.
