Paladins: How to Get Crystals?

Like most free-to-play games, Paladins uses a few currencies. And the most valuable of those are definitely crystals.

In order to unlock more champions, cosmetics, or even treasure chest rolls, you’ll need to either save a lot of gold or use a different type of currency, called crystals. However, getting them is not as easy as it may seem at first.

Crystals are a Premium currency, and therefore you’re mostly expected to buy them with real money.

The prices start at 4.99 USD for 200 crystals, but the price-per-crystal gets better the more you buy at once, with the most expensive bundle of 8000 crystals going for 99.00 USD. But there are a few ways to earn crystals without spending your hard-earned cash.

Events and Trials

Even though events are very rare, crystals can be given for redeeming promotional codes or during special events. The most straightforward way to earn crystals right now is to participate in the Trials of the Realm.

These are tied to the Event Pass mechanic. Every time a new Paladins patch comes out, a new Trial of the Realm map is released. Each player is then given two tickets, which can be used to unlock more challenges, which in turn give more tickets. And some of the rewards for completing the Trial of the Realm challenges include crystals.

Refer-A-Friend

Another way to earn crystals is by using the Refer-A-Friend feature. On the game’s official website, you can create your own Referral Link by clicking the “Refer a friend” option, found in the “account info” section of your profile.

Sending this link to your friends will give you rewards based on your friend’s progression in the game. You’ll also earn bonuses for playing with the referred friend for a set number of hours.

However, crystals are only rewarded for great achievements in these fields – you need to get 5 of your referred friends to get your first bundle of this precious currency.

Other Bundles

Although it still technically requires using real money, crystals are often included with DLC you can buy for the game. For at least three years, each season pass came with 1500 crystals and a 10% bonus to every crystal bundle you’ll buy in the corresponding year.

But, by combining all the different ways to get crystals, you shouldn’t need to buy all that much either way, so do that only if you’re truly interested in the season pass on its own.

Even before the Terraria 1.4.4 update, defeating the Empress of Light during the day is an absolute nightmare. Especially when facing her much harder difficulty levels.

She has the potential of one-hitting you and your strategy involves stacking multiple items and buffs to dodge her attacks as well as having a high enough damage output to end the fight fast.

The latest 1.4.4 Update is a lot harder. Now, dodge potions and buffs do not affect her and the only way to survive her onslaught is to not get hit.

In this guide, we will be showing you some useful tips to remain unscathed as you challenge one of the hardest bosses to beat, the Daytime Empress of Light and get a Terra Prisma in Terraria 1.4.4

How to Defeat New Daytime Empress in Terraria 1.4.4

Like any summoned boss battles in Terraria, the first thing you should set up is your battle arena. Place wooden boards for you to land on and easily pivot as you dodge her attacks.

This will later prove very useful even if you rely on flying items since turning from left to right on the ground is a lot faster than moving in the air.

Choose your weapon and strategy carefully

If you already have the Terra Prisma then it is a great idea for you to use it. The item summons prismatic lacewing to follow and damage opponents and for us, the best strategy in facing her is to Summon minions and deal additional damage with a whip or a ranged weapon.

Buffs to use

Focus on potions that increase your speed like the swiftness potion. Mix these up with a summoning potion to increase your minion Spawn and get potions that increase your max damage output overall.

You won’t have to use any defense potions since you will be focusing on not getting hit for you to get the Terra Prisma item. Besides, you will most likely get one hit so it’s pointless to use defense potions.

Armors to use

Use armors that either increase your summon capacity or enhances summon damage. You won’t have to use high defense items since they will be rendered useless with the boss’s high damage output.

Facing the Boss

It will take some time to analyze her attack pattern. To play it safe engage her and move in an L direction. Drop down and move horizontally away from her. Be careful with her range attacks because most of these have good tracking capabilities.

Area of Effect attack pattern

When she pauses to deliver her area of attacks you might want to position yourself high. When the first laser lights flare up dodge by going down and slowly move clockwise in the map. She will Spawn 2 to 3 AOE attacks before reverting to her tracking projectiles.

To summarize, on tracking projectile attacks move down and away from the boss. For are of effects set her first attack up by heading high until the first AOE flare spawns then make your way down and move clockwise until she switches her attacks again.

It might be difficult at first but it isn’t impossible to do. All you need is some practice and proper timing to pull this off and get out on top.
