After centuries of poring through the great lore of Stormfall, the Mages of the great council have unveiled a new instrument in the war for Stormfall – Crystals!
Heaved up from the fiery belly of Darkshine during the Age of Creation, Crystals are imbued with powerful blessings and enchantments that can be used to grant boosts to the Offensive and Defensive statistics of your Units when activated at the Sanctum of Shards. These will work in tandem with all other upgrades, relics, and other magical items currently affecting your Units.
You can increase the size and potency of your Crystals by combining any two of the same level and type, thus granting you a new Crystal of a higher level. By repeating this process, you can upgrade Crystals up to a maximum Level of 12. The higher the level of the Crystal, the better the bonus it will grant to your forces once activated.
You can receive Crystal Coffers (boxes containing Crystals) by:
- Purchasing them at the Black Market from the "Misc." tab;
- Participating in Global Quests;
- Challenging other Leagues;
- Participating in the Quest of the Single Knight;
- Attacking or defending Battlegrounds, etc;
All Crystal Coffers acquired will be sent to Cache at the Sanctum of Shards, where you can open them and collect your Crystals.
To use and store Crystals you must first build the Sanctum of Shards. All Crystals gained in the game are stored in the Cache at your Sanctum of Shards. To view a Crystal's attributes, simply place your cursor over it. To activate a Crystal, simply place it into any open Activation Slot on the Activation Board. Crystals are permanent bonuses, and will work until you decide to remove them.
Once applied, you can only safely remove Crystals and move them back to the Cache with the help of a special tool: the Celestial Wand. Use caution, for each Celestial Wand will be destroyed following the successful removal of a Crystal.
