Xenoblade Chronicles 2 Rare Core Crystals Farming

How to Farm Rare Core Crystals
If you have been playing the game for some time, you will know that obtaining Rare Core Crystals in Xenoblade Chronicles 2 is no easy task. It takes a lot of time and it limits which Rare Blade you should opt for first as it takes a long time to collect the Rare Core Crystals required for them.
We have found two easy methods for you by which you can easily farm these Rare Core Crystals as much as you would like.
This will allow you to craft the Rare Blades much more easily as you will have a steady flow of Rare Core Crystals.
Smash Driver Combo
The first method for farming Rare Core Crystals involves you obtaining 99 Cylinders before starting with the rest. You can easily buy these Cylinders so buy 99 Cylinders and then disengage ‘Salvage Mastery’ Field Skill for all your equipped blades.
We recommend before you start that you also use a blade that is Level 4 and has the ‘Treasure Sensor’ Battle Skill. It being Level 4 will help as well because it increases the chances of getting the better bonus by 90%.
When all the initial requirements are met, you can head to the Salvage Point located in the Mor Ardain. Head south from the Kedeigh Gate to reach this salvage point.
Start the Salvage process by using the Cylinders you bought and fail in every QTE prompt. This is very important. You must fail in every QTE prompt.
This results in more monster spawning so you can kill them using the Smash Driver Combo. This results in them dropping 2 Common and 2 Rare Crystals every time.
Mostly the monster spawning will be Small Hermit Crab and you can use Break, Topple, Launch, Smash Driver Combo on it to kill it quickly.
This method will give you an average of 40-46 Rare Core Crystals and 55 Common Core Crystals with using just 50 Common Cylinders that you bought.
Overkill Chain Attack
Same process as the previous one. Buy 99 Cylinders and disengage ‘Salvage Mastery’ Field Skill from all the equipped blades. Once done, head to the Salvage Point located in the Port of Anangham. It is on the lower level of Anangham Dock #2. Once you reach the Salvage Point, start the Salvage Process.
Completing the QTE events will give you Treasure Chests but here your goal is not the Treasure Chests. To obtain the Rare Core Crystals, you must fail these QTE events so that more monsters spawn.
Kill the Small Hermit Crabs to get a Common Core Crystals. To get a Rare Core Crystal, first charge your Chain Attack Gauge by attacking other monsters spawning there such as Zamtrios or Stingrays.
Once it is all charged up, hit the next Small Hermit Crab that spawns and it will give you a Rare Core Crystal, as you will kill it with the Overkill power of 200%. Using a chain attack here will also result in a Rare Core Crystal dropping.
Both these methods can be used as many times as you like and they can be used for quickly farming both Common Core Crystals as well as Rare Core Crystals.
