Do You Need Friends to Play?

Can't Play Solo

Elemental Crucible is an event that can only be played in Co-Op mode. If you attempt to play alone you will be automatically matched with random players.

▼Playing With Friends Requires You to Already Be In Co-Op

When you want to join up with your friends, you must already be in a Co-Op group together. Attempting Elemental Crucible during Co-Op mode will allow you to join with the players currently in your game rather than attempt to match you with random players.

Collect Clots of the Same Color

Elemental Crucible Tutorial.jpg

You should always make sure the Elemental Clots you pick up are of the same color. If you pick up a Clot of a different color you will lose the previous Clots, making your efforts in vain. Try to stay away from other colors until you've put the ones you have into the Elemental Crucible.

Prioritize Defeating Enemies

Prioritize Enemies.jpeg

Elemental Clots will disappear after too many Elemental Reactions. Ranged enemies are especially annoying to chase down and the Clots you spent time picking up will end up going to waste so as soon as an enemy appears you should prioritize taking them out.

・You pick up an Electro Elemental Clot.
・You get hit by an arrow imbued with Pyro and the Overloaded reaction occurs, causing the Clot to disappear.

Don't Follow Your Teammates


This is especially vital when playing with random players as communication is more difficult. As the goal of this event is to collect as many Elemental Clots as you can, if you head in the same direction as your teammates you won't be as efficient at picking them up so watch their movements and head in a direction they aren't.

Don't Collect More Than 3 Clots


You can hold 3 Elemental Clots at the same time, but if another Clot of the same color is too far away or the only nearby Clots are of different colors, take what you're currently holding over to the Elemental Crucible before going after more. If you try too hard to pick up 3 there's a high chance you may get hit by an enemy that causes an Elemental Reaction, resulting in you losing what you had.

      Zhongli is good - definitely better than when he first came out. Venti is kind of an insane character overall with his crowd control which is why people were pulling so much for him. Zhongli is different since the petrification from his burst only lasts a few seconds. Most people pull him for his shield, so if you are looking for a strong shield or Geo character then you can pull him but it's not really that necessary. It just matters whether you like playing him :)

      Looking for someone to help me grind to that 15k namecard achievement in Twisted Realm! I don't have enough dmg to get there myself, but with another person it should be doable :) My Chongyun puts out pretty high damage, and I can also provide my lvl. 82 Jean as a healer. Please lmk if you're interested!
