In the new DLC for Borderlands 2, you will find a new type of currency called ‘Seraph Crystals’. In this guide, we will teach you about Borderlands 2 Captain Scarlett DLC Seraph Crystals Farming techniques.
These glowing items can be traded for the new Seraph-level rarity guns and relics in the town of Oasis, but you’ll need lots of them to purchase the full set.
Borderlands 2 Captain Scarlett DLC Seraph Crystals Farming
Seraph Crystals are rather rare, but there’s a small exploit you can use to get them faster if you’re willing to put in the work.
Once you’re finished with the main story quests and side-quests, the only way to gain Seraph Crystals is by fighting the two new Raid Bosses; Hyperius the Invincible and Master Gee the Invincible. Both drop crystals but the problem is that this quest can only be repeated once every 24 hours, so how do we go about this?
Simple. Once you’ve finished the quest(s), save and quit the game. Go offline, then change your console or PC’s date 24 hours ahead. Go back online, and you’ll see that the Raid Bosses will be available to fight once again.
You might want to try using this to beat Hyperius as he can actually be soloed (if you have good equipment). He only drops eight crystals to Master Gee’s 16, but the latter requires a party.
In order to beat Hyperius, you must have “B0re”; a gadget used to kill Hyperius. Gather some grenades and blow up every robot you encounter and use the BOre against Hyperius as this gadget penetrates through their shields and causes a great amount of damage. The Pimpernel and DPUH are great for this.
However, Seraph crystals are only dropped in UVHM from the seraph bosses. Therefore, in the end it all depends on the difficulty of the order: Pyro Pete – Torgue, Hyperius/Master Gee – Captain Scarlett’s, Voracidous – Hammerlock’s and Ancient Dragons – Tiny Tina’s (8-15 crystals per kill according to the boss).
In short, Pyro Pete is probably the easiest and the farming method is quite simple to understand. Simply use a Vladof rocket launcher infinite ammo glitch, and to quickly beat him use infinity pistol or you can use the Fibber instead.
Enter the elevator and move down to face the scaffolding. Look at the right and see a pillar near a ledge. Jump on it and hide behind the pillar. This way you’ll have the pillars to cover you up and the good news is that he can’t jump up there with you. Kill him, collect the loot and you’re done!
