  • The Ore Synthesizer has a rare chance to grant 10 Crystals per harvest.
  • You will need 160 Shimmering Crystals to unlock the skins for all of the weapons.
  • You will need a total of 66 Shimmering Crystals or Tenebrous Crystals to unlock all the guild armor skins.
Players who do not have the Heart of Thorns expansion may still receive Shimmering Crystals from the synthesizer.
