Some pieces of crystal gathered from a defeated rift. Can be crafted together with metal to create a rune that will attach to metal items.
Rift crystals are used to create runes.
Rift crystals can be obtained by prospecting a rift crystal (node) in the rift area after the rift has been closed. Gathering these efficiently requires a high prospecting skill. Gathered Rift crystals are dropped directly into the inventory. A failed action results in a regular rock shard on the ground.
Rift crystals are also randomly distributed to players according to their participation points together with the other rift rewards after the rift has been closed.
