Genshin Impact guide: The Elemental Crucible event
Starting the event
The Elemental Crucible event in Genshin Impact only lasts for a week, so try to make the most out of it. To start it, simply speak with Timaeus, the Alchemist NPC in Mondstadt. You’re told to meet him in the Temple of the Four Winds directly east of the city.
Once you reach the area, you can start the Elemental Crucible event. This has random matchmaking enabled.
Note: The character you’ll control is the one that’s currently active when you click on the Elemental Crucible’s spire.
Battling mobs and collecting Elemental Clots
The objective of Genshin Impact‘s Elemental Crucible event is to defeat mobs (especially the larger ones) who’ll drop Elemental Clots (colored cubes). These come in different colors corresponding to the various elements in the game.
Pick up these Elemental Clots by running through them. Next, deposit them near the spire to continue filling the progress bar at the top of your HUD.
If you deposit only one cube, you’ll gain a little smidgen of progress. However, you’re allowed to pick up a maximum of three cubes of the same color and then bring them to the Elemental Crucible’s spire. This will provide a larger boost to the progress bar. Do watch out for cubes of other elements as those can cause the ones you’re carrying to disappear.
The Elemental Crucible’s timer is fairly generous, so you won’t need to worry at all. In most cases, you should be done in three to four minutes.
Once the progress bar is full, the run is over. You can check to see which players contributed the most during the activity.
Completing the Elemental Crucible event
Remember that you use up 40 Original Resin when obtaining rewards, making this event a good way of completing Genshin Impact‘s Battle Pass missions to spend Original Resin too. Additional Battle Pass missions are related to the Elemental Crucible event, netting you more Battle Pass EXP.
Now, if the host decides to have another run, you can accept the invite to keep doing the event. Conversely, click on the “WiFi” icon at the upper left-hand corner of your HUD. This lets you resume solo play in Genshin Impact.
