Obtaining Forest Crystal

Each Life Exp or Life Mastery crystal requires 1 Forest Crystal to craft.

Forest Crystal is going to be the most challenging item to obtain from all of the materials.

You can’t purchase this on the marketplace, so it will take some time to get.

 

Obtaining Forest Crystal:

  • Sniper hunting in Land of the Morning Light – about 1 every 1.5 hours.
  • Send worker to Dokkebi Forest node – 1 every 2 to 3 weeks.
  • AFK Fishing in Land of the Morning Light – 1 every week.
  • Special Barter – is this real? Not in my experience, but I have proof it exists.
  • Exchange 1000 Sangpyeong Coin to Hyunyong in Moodle Village.

Forest Crystal via Special Barter

After completing a barter, there is a chance you will obtain a Special Barter.

The Special Barter in the image required a 100G gold bar to obtain 1 Forest Crystal. (10 million silver.)

This Special Barter seems very rare and for me has not been a reliable way to farm Forest Crystal.

Forest Crystal Node

Dokkebi Forest node in Land of the Morning Light has a very low rate of giving Forest Crystal.

Hire a Dokkebi Worker in Dalbeol or Nampo’s Moodle Village and send them to Dokkebi Forest excavation node.

This is a slow but predictable way to obtain Forest Crystal. The drop rate is very low.

  • In my experience it takes about 2 weeks to obtain 1 Forest Crystal.

Dokkebi Forest CP

Contribution Point costs for nodes, workshops, and worker lodging are low in Land of the Morning Light.

  • CP Costs:
    • Node chain from Dalbeol Village: 2 CP
    • Node chain from Nampo’s Moodle Village:  3 CP

Dokkebi Forest Worker

NOTE: Dolswe and Shellfolk can’t work in the Dokkebi Forest. (Lore that King Duoksini doesn’t allow it.)

  • Dokkebi Forest node only allows Dokkebi Workers.

Dokkebi Workers can be hired at Nampo’s Moodle Village or Dalbeol.

  • Dalbeol is closer to the node.

Dokkebi Spawn Rates:

  • It may have just been bad luck, but I had a hard time rolling Dokkebi workers in Dalbeol. I was able to get a few Skilled ones I could promote. However, Nampo’s Moodle Village seems to have an abundance of them. Dokkebi luck anyone?

Forest Crystal Sniper Hunting

Use a sniper rifle to hunt Sensitive Boar, Bear, and Tiger in Land of the Morning Light then butcher the corpses with a butcher knife.

Forest Crystal drop rate is about 0.6 per hour. (Source: Hunting Spreadsheet – Thanks gpw!)
