Crystals are a ground unit type. They're created by using Emeric's groove.

They are a non-interactive unit that cannot move, fight, or capture structures. Instead, they generate a protective aura that improves the defense of all allies within 3 tiles

Defence Aura[edit]

The unique property of the Crystal is the defence-granting aura within 3 tiles of the crystal. Within the range, all tiles have functionally +3 defence on top of their original defence stat, to a maximum of 4. This works for defence-reducing tiles like Shore and River, which become +2 and +1 defence respectively.

Any tile with at least 0 defence will become at least 3 defence, and therefore will enable the Mage critical condition.

While the Crystal functions as a ground unit, its aura works on Sea and Air too, meaning air units (e.g. Aeronauts) and water units (e.g. Turtles) can receive defence boosts.

Reinforcement[edit]

Unlike most units, the Crystal cannot be reinforced at all. They can, however, still be healed by Errol's groove and Mage healing.

Damage Matrix[edit]

See also: Damage Matrix

The damage they receive is universally 105%. However, due to the Crystal's own protective aura, it will never actually receive this amount of damage.

Trivia[edit]

  • Despite appearing to be functionally a structure, the Crystal can still be targetted by various abilities that only work on combat units. This includes:
    • All enemy and ally Grooves
    • Spells from the Mage and Sky Rider
    • The crystal will die in Orla's Scorching Fire
  • There is a bug that when an event converts the team of a crystal, its aura will not immediately change colour, however the effect of the crystal will transfer fully.
  • The Crystal is the only method in the game of giving air units a non-zero defence stat.
  • In lore, they are known as Cherrystones, invented by Emeric, and named after the Kingdom of Cherrystone.
  • Even if the Crystal itself is not seen in Fog of War, the aura it emits can still be visible from further away.
