Energy Amplifier crystals and the Vishap’s Rest domain
So, what exactly are those crystals for? Well, let’s dive right into the details.
The crystals that you found from the Irminsul Fruit Fragments are actually used to buff the Energy Amplifier. Open this screen and you’ll be able to attach the crystals. If you went through all the spots in Springvale, Guyun Stone Forest, and Lingju Pass, then you should have 12 crystals with you.
There’s also a resource called “Motive Force” that caps how many crystals you can attach at any given point in time. As such, you’ll want to fine-tune your selections to make sure that you have the buffs that can complement your party’s setup. You can increase your Motive Force by clicking on the plus sign next to it, and choosing three high-level characters from your friends’ showcase. However, I think 1,000 Motive Force is the maximum for now and you can’t go beyond that.
Anyway, here are the effects of the crystals:
|Crystal||Effect||Motive Force Cost|
|Starcrystal Dance||Deals 500% of your ATK as damage to nearby enemies when you obtain an elemental shard from a Geo reaction.|
+40% Geo damage bonus for 10 seconds after this effect is triggered.
|Blade Dance||Gain 5 stacks of Blade Dance; each stack increases normal attack damage by 15% and having the maximum number of stacks increase normal attack speed by 15%.|
Characters will lose a stack of Blade Dance if they take damage; they may gain a stack every 10 seconds that they’re on the field.
|Scattersleet Dance||When a character causes Superconduct, there’s a 50% chance to trigger a falling icicle that deals 500% of the character’s ATK as damage; this also lowers a target’s physical resistance by 25%.||250|
|Refraction Crystals||+30% elemental damage bonus for 10 seconds after obtaining an elemental shard from a Geo reaction.||150|
|Focusing Crystals||+2 energy regeneration for all party members after obtaining an elemental shard from a Geo reaction.||150|
|Frostbite||+30% normal and charged attack damage vs. Cryo-affected opponents.||150|
|Emboldened||+40% normal attack damage for 20 seconds for a character that has just used their elemental burst.||150|
|Courageous||+10% ATK for a shielded character who hits a target with a normal attack; lasts 8 seconds and can stack up to 5 times.||150|
|Execution||When charged attacks hit opponents with less than 30% HP, an executioner’s blade will deal immense damage; can be triggered once every 10 seconds.||150|
|Iron Wall||+35% shield strength.||100|
|Keen Edge||+30% physical damage bonus.||100|
|Song of Steel||+30% normal attack damage.||100|
Note 1: If you’re playing co-op, then only the host (P1) character will be able to configure the crystals that can be used for the Energy Amplifier.
Note 2: These effects are only active when you enter a specific domain that’s part of Genshin Impact‘s Energy Amplifier Initiation event.
Completing the Vishap’s Rest domain
One of these domains is called Vishap’s Rest which you’ll be able to visit now. You can tackle this solo or with another player via co-op.
Think of this as similar to past domains that you’ve visited in Genshin Impact. There are a couple of rooms with several mobs that are scaled to your level. They’re mostly hilichurls, and they’re not buffed by a Mutation Stone either.
Once you reach the end, though, you’ll have the “boss” encounter, if you can call it that. As the domain’s name implies, this domain has you facing off against a couple of Geovishap Hatchlings followed by a Geovishap. Seeing that the crystal buffs are mostly Geo-based, then you’ll want someone like Zhongli or Albedo to generate shields for your team.
After completing this encounter, you’ll receive some gold, primogems, and Fractured Fruit Data. Also, the Twisted Realm will open up. However, before we discuss that, let’s talk about the event shop rewards in the next part of our guide.
