Act 2: The new Energy Amplifier Crystals
First, let’s discuss the new Energy Amplifier Crystals that you can find in Genshin Impact.
Remember how each place of interest has three Irminsul Fragments? Well, if you can activate all of them, you’ll obtain 12 new Energy Amplifier Crystals (the last fragment in each area contains two of these). Several of these are very helpful, especially due to the nature of encounters in the new domains (Where Shadows Writhe and Twisted Realm: Domain of Furious Thunder).
Below, you’ll see the new Energy Amplifier Crystals and their effects:
|Crystal||Effect||Motive Force Cost|
|Hunter’s Romp||+35% charged attack damage for all characters after defeating an enemy with a charged attack. Lasts 60 seconds and can stack up to 5 times.||250|
|Thundering Dance||When a character causes Electro-Charged, there’s a 50% chance to trigger a lightning strike that deals 500% of the character’s ATK as damage, while also decreasing the target’s Electro resistance by 25%. Triggers once every 5 seconds; cooldown is shared by the entire party.||250|
|Duelist’s Dance||When hitting opponents, an AoE shockwave will be unleashed. If at full HP, the damage will be significantly higher. Triggers once every 5 seconds per character.||250|
|Ironbow||+50% crit rate for normal and charged attacks after hitting opponents’ weak spots with charged attacks from your bow; lasts 8 seconds.||150|
|Whirlpool||Defeating enemies with a charged attack creates a vacuum that pulls hostiles, dealing damage based on 500% of the character’s ATK. Can be triggered once every 2 seconds.||150|
|Timely Rain||A Hydro Amber that creates falling rain will spawn when you hit a target with your elemental burst. Can be triggered once every 6 seconds.||150|
|Coalesced Defenses||+40% incoming healing bonus when protected by a shield.||150|
|Judgment||A defeated enemy unleashes an AoE shockwave that damages other nearby enemies.||150|
|Challenger||+20% ATK and DEF when there are two or more enemies near your character.||150|
|Featherweight||-50% charged attack stamina consumption for your party.||100|
|Overmastered||+100 elemental mastery for your party.||100|
|Enhanced Healing||+25% incoming healing bonus for your party.||100|
Note: The Energy Amplifier Crystals that you obtained from the previous act remain available. You can mix and match to find worthwhile combos. However, remember that Motive Force (which represents the value of each crystal) is still capped at 1,000 points.
Anyway, let’s talk about a new domain that you can visit in the next section of our guide. This spot is called Where Shadows Writhe.
