The Crystals update was introduced on the 20th of January, 2015. It introduced five new crystals which could be found using the Geiger Counter: the Green Crystal, the Red Crystal, the Blue Crystal, the White Crystal and the Black Crystal. These crystals could be harmonized together to make new items.
In order to create an item, five crystals are required (see recipes below). These five crystals can be placed in any order on the same tile, each crystal on top of the other. When all five crystals have been placed, the crystals will say:
"The crystals have reached their highest vibration!"
The eight tiles surrounding the crystal within one block radius must be cleared so that blocks can be placed to harmonize the crystals. Upon wrenching the crystal, it will say:
"The crystals are out of alignment with the elements."
This message will then be followed by the amount of Earth, Water, Fire and Chi elements which must be placed in the surrounding area. In order to fill this chi, any block, background tile or tree must be placed in the surrounding area in order to harmonize the crystal. A rough guide to the rarity which must be placed is:
- Slightly more = rarity 1-15
- More = rarity 15-25
- Far more = rarity 25-40
- Vastly more = rarity 40+
In order to see which items can be placed, click the INFO for any item. It will display the chi associated with the item. If the crystal requires far more Earth chi, a rarity 25-40 Earth chi block can be placed. When all is done, upon wrenching the crystal, it will say:
"The crystals are in perfect harmonic resonance with the elements. A single tap should reveal their true essence."
Punching the crystals will drop the item where the crystals were placed.
Also, to know whether a crystal can be placed on top of another crystal is to wrench the crystals which have not had five crystals placed on it.
- Crimson Sun means a Red Crystal can be placed on it.
- Azure Ocean means a Blue Crystal can be placed on it.
- Emerald Fields mean a Green Crystal can be placed on it.
- Alabaster Clouds means a White Crystal can be placed on it.
- Deepest Night means a Black Crystal can be placed on it.
If only one exists, it means that it is the only type of crystal which can be placed on it to make an existing recipe. If a non-existent combination of crystals has been made, it will say that the crystals are silent and nothing has been made.
Note: Order does not matter.
