Crystal weapon seed

A crystal weapon seed is what is left over after a crystal weapon’s charges are used up.

Prior to the release of Prifddinas, this item was known as a crystal seed. With the city’s opening, crystal seeds were renamed and reclassified into four distinct types:

Obtaining a seed [ edit | edit source ]

Uncharged crystal weapon seeds can be obtained by:

  • Monster drops
  • Pickpocketing from Prifddinas elven workers
  • Using up all of the charges of a piece of crystal equipment
  • Having a crystal singer revert a piece of crystal equipment
  • Reaching into Motherlode Maw
  • Shattering a Crystal geode

Creating equipment [ edit | edit source ]

Prior to the completion of Plague’s End, uncharged crystal weapon seeds can be converted into a crystal bow or crystal shield by Ilfeen for a price. The price falls each time Ilfeen converts a seed to shield/bow. The minimum prices that Ilfeen will charge are 180,000 coins for bows and 150,000 coins for shields. Alternatively, bows and shields can be purchased new from Islwyn without needing a crystal seed for 1,000,000 coins.

One of the rewards for completion of the Roving Elves quest is a partially charged (2/10) crystal bow or crystal shield.

On completion of Plague’s End, by which players gain access to Prifddinas, players also gain access to Eluned’s crystal-singing service in the Ithell Clan district. To upgrade to a weapon, use the seed on Eluned, or Islwyn after The Light Within, to get an option of Melee, Magic, or Ranged. Players can choose what weapon to make from that interface. Here, she will sing uncharged crystal weapon seeds into a greater variety of equipment for a fee:

  • Magic equipment: Staff, wand, and orb.
  • Melee equipment: Halberd, dagger, and off-hand dagger.
  • Ranged equipment: Bow, chakram, and off-hand chakram.

Eluned’s weapon singing fee works in a similar way to Ilfeen’s, with fees ranging from 1,000,000 coins down to 200,000, decreasing every time the player uses the service. This includes Ilfeen’s count.

Additionally, crystal weapon seeds can be combined with harmonic dust through Crystal Singing at the crystal bowl in Prifddinas after completing The Eyes of Glouphrie and Plague’s End.

A crystal weapon seed is an elven crystal that can be turned into crystal weapons. A crystal seed is awarded to the player upon completion of the Roving Elves quest, and completing The Gauntlet will yield a chance of gaining these seeds. The crystal weapon seed can be bought from the Grand exchange or from Justine’s stuff for the Last Shopper Standing for 12 Last Man Standing points.

The crystal seed is converted back into crystal equipment by means of chanting; Ilfeen is the only one to offer this service to the player. She is found teleporting back and forth between two clearings in Isafdar. However, after completion of Song of the Elves, she can be found in the western part of Prifddinas, slightly south of the house portal. Players can then choose between a crystal bow or a crystal shield. For the same price as a shield, a crystal halberd is also available to players who have completed the Hard Western Provinces Diary.

Players can also exchange the weapon seed for 10 crystal shards by speaking to Amrod in Prifddinas’ Hefin Inn. The seed can additionally be traded to Pennant in Prifddinas for one crystal acorn.

Please note: when converting a crystal seed to a crystal bow and crystal shield, they will become a crystal bow full and crystal shield full respectively, and CAN NOT be traded or be used for high alchemy.

Pricing [ edit | edit source ]

For the first four times a crystal seed is converted into equipment, the cost of Ilfeen’s next service is decreased by 180,000 or 150,000 coins depending on what equipment the player requests. The initial price of bows and shields/halberds are 900,000 and 750,000 coins respectively. The minimum price for bows and shields/halberds are 180,000 and 150,000 coins respectively.

Please note that the price of re-enchantment is contingent on the number of crystal seeds Ilfeen has recharged, and not on the number of individual equipment pieces she has recharged. For example, a player who pays Ilfeen 900,000 coins to re-enchant a crystal seed into a crystal bow would then only have to pay her 600,000 coins to recharge a seed into a crystal shield. Therefore, players who wish to stock up on many pieces of equipment are advised to pay for the shields or halberds first.

Crystal bow:

Enchantment Cost for re-enchantment
First 900,000
Second 720,000
Third 540,000
Fourth 360,000
Fifth and thereafter 180,000

Crystal shield or halberd:

Enchantment Cost for re-enchantment
First 750,000
Second 600,000
Third 450,000
Fourth 300,000
Fifth and thereafter 150,000

Weapon Singing [ edit | edit source ]

After completion of the Song of the Elves quest players will be able to use crystal shards to sing weapons themselves, requiring 78 Crafting as well as 78 Smithing. This can be done at the singing bowl located just south of the player owned house portal in the city of Prifddinas. Another singing bowl can be found in the southeast corner of Prifddinas just east of the mining shop. Players who do not meet the skill requirements can pay a nearby elf to create the weapon for an additional 20 shards.

The amount of crystal shards needed to sing a piece of legacy crystal equipment are as follows:

  • Crystal shield – 40 crystal shard and 1 crystal weapon seed
  • Crystal bow – 40 crystal shard and 1 crystal weapon seed
  • Crystal halberd – 40 crystal shard and 1 crystal weapon seed
