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


  • Tenebrous means dark; shadowy, gloomy or obscure. It's the opposite of "Shimmering".
