How to find[edit | edit source]
The player must have spoken to the "Huntmaster" in Phon Coast and defeated Thalassinon to start the Rare Game quest. To spawn the Crystal Knight, the player must traverse from A Vikaari Kanbhru Ra to Dhebon Jilaam Pratii'dii to Sthaana Sagittarius and to Dhebon Jilaam Praa'dii before going back to A Vikaari Kanbhru Ra.
To put it more simply, the player must start at Way Stone XX and run a clockwise loop to the Sagittarius Gate Switch and back. This circular journey spawns the Crystal Knight. It appears on the platform with two Forbiddens. Once it has been slain, the Crystal Knight can never be hunted again, and thus so it is suggested to steal the Glimmering Robes it holds.
To reach the Sagittarius Gate Switch, from the first area of the Great Crystal the player should move one area to find and open the Scorpio Gate Switch, then move back to the previous area and take the exit to the left of the path to the Scorpio Gate Switch. This leads to Waystone IX, which teleports the party to Waystone X, depicted on the map to the left.
Battle[edit | edit source]
Crystal Knight uses Darkga, which can hit for 2,000+ damage. It fights alongside Forbiddens. Crystal Knight's physical strikes inflict Slow. Its most powerful attack is Shining Ray, which will hit for about 1,500 HP damage on the entire party. It also uses Immobilizega.
Strategy[edit | edit source]
Crystal Knight is not the most powerful Rare Game, but still should not be taken lightly. The party should equip either Demon Shield or Black Mask to prevent damage from Darkga. Weapons with the Holy element work best, especially if coupled with the White Robes.
The party should dispel Crystal Knight's status buffs and next take out the two Forbiddens that battle alongside it. Taking them out first will prevent a lot of negative status effects on the party. When attacking the Crystal Knight, one party member should hold back for healing and casting Haste to cancel out Slow. The battle is a lot easier if the Crystal Knight is silenced.
