Numerous fans have been waiting for more than a decade for a sequel to the critically acclaimed Prince of Persia series and Ubisoft has finally delivered it in the form of a 2.5D side-scrolling adventure titled Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown. This game takes the franchise in a new direction where you take on the role of an elite Persian warrior named Sargon and embark on time-bending adventures. As you progress, you need to improve the skills and abilities of Sargon and the best way to do it would be by using Time Crystals, an in-game currency that is mainly used to upgrade the Persian warrior’s weapons, potions, etc. Here’s how you can obtain more of them.
How to Farm Time Crystals in Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown?
Time Crystals have a variety of use cases such as purchasing Amulets, Amulet Upgrades, upgrading Sargon’s Weapons, purchasing Healing Potions, and revealing the map with Fariba’s help. Apart from obtaining them from clay pots and other objects in the environment, here are all the ways you can farm these crystals:
Respawn Enemies by Healing at Wak-Wak Trees
While it is well-known that killing enemies drops Time Crystals, the game also respawns said enemies once again if Sargon heals himself at the Wak-Wak Tree. This can be an excellent way to farm Time Crystals. As soon as you continue to heal yourself through this method, the enemies will continue respawning in the surrounding area, making for a near-infinite way to obtain these crystals.
Unlike regular enemies, defeating bosses in Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown will drop an abundance of Time Crystals. You can also find minibosses such as Erlik and follow the Wak-Wak Tree method to further improve the amount of Time Crystals you can farm. Each Erlik kill will grant you 100 of these crystals and you will also receive a few additional ones from surrounding enemies.
Complete Artaban’s Challenges
Apart from completing sidequests which will grant you a sizeable amount of Time Crystals, you can also complete the challenges given to you by Artaban, an Immortal who teaches new and unique combat techniques to Sargon. Completing his training challenges will provide you with Time Crystals, so make sure you finish all of them as soon as possible, as they are relatively easy.
Can Time Crystals be purchased with real money?
No, Time Crystals are obtained solely through gameplay and cannot be purchased with real money.
Do Time Crystals carry over between game saves?
Yes, the Time Crystals collected are saved to the player’s account and carry over between game saves.
Are there any other uses for Time Crystals besides the ones listed?
Besides the listed uses, Time Crystals can also be used to unlock special abilities and skills for Sargon.
In Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown, farming Time Crystals is essential for enhancing Sargon’s abilities and equipment. By respawning enemies at Wak-Wak Trees, defeating bosses, and completing challenges, players can efficiently gather Time Crystals to upgrade their arsenal and progress through the game.
The game is currently available as a demo with the full release slated for 18th January for the Nintendo Switch, PC, PlayStation 5 and 4, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S. Start farming those Time Crystals and enjoy the adventurous journey with Sargon in Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown!
