Electro Crystals Farming Guide for Genshin Impact

Multiple different resources can be collected in Genshin Impact. One of these resources is Electro Crystals. Electro Crystals can be used in numerous ways, including creating insulation potions. You also need to use a specific method when harvesting Electro Crystals, or else you will get damaged.

What are Electro Crystals?

Electro Crystals emit Electro Energy whenever you get close to them.

Electro Crystals are a type of material typically used for creating Insulation Potion and Oils. This crystal absorbs energy from the air, making it hard to harvest. When you stand near an electro crystal, it absorbs the Electro energy in the air and damages you, making it challenging to collect.

How to get Electro Crystals

Using Amber's charged attack allows you to break the crystals from afar.

So how do you get electro crystals? We recommend using a long-range pyro user like Amber so you can overload the crystals from afar. Any Pyro character works as well, so you can use the elemental skills of Klee and Diluc to harvest the Electro Crystals as well. However, Amber is the most suitable character for farming Electro Crystals, because of her charged Pyro attack.

Farming Locations

There are different farming locations for Electro Crystals in Genshin Impact. Some NPCs also sell Electro Crystals and we will discuss them all below.

Cape Oath

Cape Oath gives you multiple Electro Crystal Spawns.

In the Mondstadt region, you can find multiple spawns of Electro Crystals on the Cape Oath. This area can give you four to six electro crystal per spawn. You can also find several chests in this area as well.
