How to use Crystalfly Trap

The Crystalfly Trap is a versatile device that can be positioned in various locations. To activate it, you simply have to deploy it and supply it with 30 minerals. Just wait for a while and the Crystalfly Trap will be available.

On a weekly basis, the Crystalfly Trap will let you collect 15 Crystal Cores. Players can monitor the advancement of this tool through the inventory or by checking the Teyvat map. This is because a certain duration must elapse before these cores become collectible.

Do notice that you must wait 7 days in total to receive 15 crystal cores.

Limited to gathering 15 Crystal Cores weekly, the Crystalfly Trap offers the opportunity to get a substantial quantity of cores in a single usage. This proves highly advantageous, given that activating the trap requires minimal effort. You can merely switch it on and revisit it at a later time.

What do you do with Crystal Cores in Genshin?

You can do a few things with the Crystal Cores you get from the Crystalfly Trap. But the best way to use them might be to make Condensed Resin. This lets you get double rewards from places like Domains or Ley Line Outcrops, which helps you gather artifacts and stuff faster.

With Crystal Cores, you can also make these items:

  • Condensed Resin
  • Adepti Seeker’s Stove
  • Windbarrier Potion
  • Dendrocide Potion
  • Frostshield Potion
