Best Farming Route for Lightcrystal

Farm Lightcrystal in the Flooded Forest

Lightcrystals can be mined from the blue and white mining outcrops in the Flooded Forest, regardless of rank. You can also get a ton of Machalite Ore here.

It's recommended to farm Lightcrystals when there's a Mining Outcrop Upsurge ongoing for Flooded Forest expeditions.

Lightcrystal Farming Route

Lightcrystal Farming Route in the Flooded Forest
This Mining Outcrop's inside the pyramid-like structure.
This one's right outside Sub-camp 1.
This one's in a literal hole in the wall! See below for a more detailed guide.
This Mining Outcrop is near the hole that drops you down underground (Area 14). Be careful not to fall in!

Mining Outcrop #5 is Inside a Small Cave on the Rock Wall

One of the mining outcrops in area no. 5 in the farming route is quite tricky to spot, since it's high up. But you just have to use Wirebugs and wallrun up there. There's also a Relic Record in this hole!

Mining Outcrops at the Southeast Pyramid

There's also a couple of mining outcrops in the southeast/bottom right (at the pyramid), but it's not so good in terms of efficiency and can be ignored. However, if you don't mind taking the extra effort of going there, why not?
