Xenoblade Chronicles 2 Rare Blades, Core Crystals And Where To Find Them

xenoblade-chronicles-2-core-crystal-screenshot

Blades are integral to the battle system in Xenoblade Chronicles 2, artificial lifeforms that Drivers have the power to bond with. They not only grant a Driver their weapons, but they are allies, whose destinies become intertwined as they grow together.

When a Driver resonates with a Core Crystal they can generate new Blades to bond with, and, while the common Blades serve their purpose well enough, it is the Rare Blades that are the ones that you will be hoping for. That’s because the process is random, in that you choose a Core Crystal to resonate with and then leave it to lady luck as to which Blade you will be rewarded with.

There are Rare Blades that are unlocked through story progression, too, with players also able to complete specific side quests in Xenoblade Chronicles 2 to resonate with others. But, the bulk of the Rare Blades will be purely down to chance.

It’s worth it, though, as these Rare Blades can not only have access to their own unique side quests and Heart-to-Heart events, but have far more complex Affinity Charts, meaning that they can eventually become the most powerful Blades in the entire game.

Xenoblade Chronicles 2 Core Crystals, Where To Find Them And How To Use Them

Core Crystals are an item that you will continuously stumble upon in Xenoblade Chronicles 2, thankfully. There are Common, Rare, Legendary, Beast, and other kinds that you will get your hands on – whether they are dropped after encounters, discovered in a treasure chest, or through other means.

When you are ready to use them, press Start to open the menu, and then select Blades. It is the Bond Blade option that you want, the process in which the player can awaken a new Blade from any Core Crystal that they have collected.

It’s worth mentioning that the Blade is tied to the Driver that it bonds with, and while there is an Overdrive Protocol item that can be used to transfer them between Drivers, these are scarce – in our experience. And Tora, as he is not a Driver and relies on his artificial Blade to fight, cannot bond with Core Crystals.

Once you have chosen the character you want to resonate with a Core Crystal, the rest, as we’ve mentioned before, is down to luck. Cross everything you possibly can, and hope that a Rare Blade soon appears.

We have listed every Rare Blade that is in Xenoblade Chronicles 2, their element, role in battle, Field Skills, and how to obtain them, below as a reference point. But, as always, please be aware that this contains spoilers!
