How to get Purecrystal in MHR Sunbreak

You can get Purecrystal in the Flooded Forest by mining ore nodes, but only if you're at Master Rank. Low Rank and High Rank will not yield Purecrystal. Start an Expedition Tour and pick A Tour of the Forest.

There are 16 places you can mine for Purecrystal from the Blue and White Mining Outcrops. There are 14 outcrops on the upper level of the Flooded Forest and two on the lower level in Area 14.

Best Purecrystal Farming Route - MHR Sunbreak

The best route to farm Purecrystal quickly is to travel counter-clockwise around the center of the Flooded Forest—so go from Area 1, to Area 6, then Area 10—and back down to complete the circle. For fast farming, we recommend ignoring the Pure crystal Mining Outcrops around the Pyramid because they are out the way, but feel free to go for them if you're desperate for more Purecrystal.

  • You can get nine Purecrystal Mining Outcrops in a short amount of time:
    • Area 1 x1
    • Area 4 x1
    • Area 9 x1
    • Area 11 x4
    • Area 10 x2
  • Optional:
    • Area 14 x2 (Lower Level)
    • Area 2 x3 (Top of Pyramid)
    • Area 2 x2 (Behind Pyramid)
