A Beginner’s Guide to Farming Crystals in Cookie Run Kingdom

There are a lot of different methods to farming crystals. Some methods take longer than others but yield more rewards. Either way, grinding this currency takes a lot of time and effort to produce results. Here are some of the best ways to get crystals in Cookie Run Kingdom.

Compete in Kingdom Arena (PvP)

Kingdom Arena, also known as PvP, is one of the easiest ways to obtain thousands of crystals. After every season, which is usually thirty days, you’ll be rewarded for your achieved leaderboard ranking in Kingdom Arena. And depending on how high you’ve ranked in PvP, you’ll be rewarded appropriately with crystals and medals. The easiest, most achievable rank in Kingdom Arena is Diamond 1 which rewards 10,000 crystals upon season end. The highest rank in Kingdom Arena is Grandmaster 1 which rewards 30,000 crystals.

It’s worth noting that you’ll also receive a handful of crystals after surpassing each rank in the leaderboard at least once. After surpassing fifteen ranks and reaching Diamond 1, you’ll earn an accumulation of 4,720 crystals.

Join a Guild and Complete Activities

Joining a guild and participating in Cookie Alliance and Guild Battles offers a lot of rewards. Players that reach Diamond 1 or 800,000 points in the solo Cookie Alliance leaderboard will receive 7,000 crystals, and guilds that land in the thirty percent margin of the top rankings will receive 2,200 crystals. Not only that, though, but the Guild Battle feature offers 4,500 crystals in round rewards and 5,000 crystals in seasonal rewards to the guild that manages to reach Diamond 1 or 25,000 trophies in the leaderboard. Both activities offer a crazy amount of goodies, so make sure you join an active guild to get the most out of these methods.

Finish World Exploration Stages (PvE)

Each stage across every difficulty in the World Exploration mode offers a few crystals if successfully completed. Not only that, though, but acquiring a certain amount of completion stars in each chapter of the story and dark difficulty will reward you plenty of crystals. You should receive thousands of crystals by perfectly completing one chapter in the World Exploration mode.

Participate in Limited-Time Events

Cookie Run Kingdom always launches limited-time events every week with goodies up for grabs, especially when a new update arrives. Keep an eye out for exclusive deals and activities to earn thousands of crystals, as this will be your most reliant method to farming the currency fast.

Tree of Wishes and Fountain of Abundance

The Tree of Wishes offers a lot of generous rewards, including crystals. The same goes for the Fountain of Abundance. For the Tree of Wishes, all you need to do is send out gifts to townspeople and do them a certain amount of times to receive the tier rewards. And for the Fountain of Abundance, all you’ll need to do is wait for the rewards to accumulate over time to get them. While these two methods don’t offer an incredible amount of crystals, they’re daily activities you can do to pass the time.

Daily Shop Deals and Watching Ads

If you click on the shop and proceed to the category named daily deals, you’ll find some free crystals. While it may not be a lot, it’s a free daily gift. Additionally, if you click the mailbox in the top right corner, you can watch three ads per day to get 90 crystals and some other goodies.

Liberating Tropical Soda Islands

Liberating various Tropical Soda Islands offers various rewards, but it’s mostly the passive income that you should be looking out for. Every time you liberate a crystal-based island, you’ll generate crystals over time which can be collected after a few hours. This method assures you’ll always receive a handful of crystals every day and the more islands you free, the more bountiful the reward.

Tower of Records and Achievements

By simply playing the game, you’ll earn achievements and those will provide a ton of crystals. Just check out your Tower of Records at the back of your kingdom and your Achievements menu located inside your account profile. See what you’re close to completing and finish those challenges to earn hundreds of crystals.

Purchase Kingdom Pass

While this method does require spending actual money, it’s one of the most cost-effective ways to acquire a bunch of crystals. Each seasonal Kingdom Pass comes with various rewards, ranging from gold to stamina to limited-edition buildings and the amount of crystals this battle pass offers differs every time. Although it does cost $4.99 USD, it’s definitely worth its price if you’re looking to stack up crystals.
