If you are early to mid game then I suggest going up the volcano on the island
(I play ark mobile) as on top it has all the obsidian,metal and crystal you want. The volcanoe is much better than caves to get crystal I think because you dont have to think about all the possible threats as once on top off the volcano I found that there were no dangerous animals. I could suggest building a base their because off all the crystal and material but it would probably be late game
⬆️ this if you found it helpfull
Ankys are better than metal picks at harvesting crystal
I find it funny that a pick is th best
I recommend taking a bronto to the lunar biome on genesis 1 there are tons of flowers that also give crystal
Ankylosaurus harvest more crystal, obsidian, and metal than metal pickaxes… I don’t know why it says metal pickaxes are better than ankylosauruses at harvesting these.
On Fjordur, in the Aberration Cave in Vannaland, there's a ton of Crystal and some Ravengers you can tame to help carry it, there's also the Megapithicus spawn terminal, so that's fun.
There is a lot at the mountain at 60 60
If you go to 76, 47 on a mountain you’ll find some.
Hi if you are a mobile player the volcano is AMAZING for crystal and obsidian and metal!!!!
Have one of your tribe mates Mount your highest weighted Anky and pick them up with the talents of your highest weighted Argy then as you are flying low over the metal nodes at the volcano, have your tribe member do the normal swing attack with the Anky as if it were on the ground and you will be able to clear the entire volcano.
If you take a stryder to gen 1 space zone then you can easily get dedis full on the left side of the space zone
My level 20 anky gets more than my ACENDANT metal pick
Sorry about the spelling
Magmas get abou 3x crystal then the mining drill gets
For me it’s hard to find but when you do the first thing to is always the spyglass
For Ark Mobile. Best way to farm crystal along with obsidian even metal I found is this. Get your self an Argy and an Anky. Next craft yourself 2 refining forges, 2 fabricators, and 2 mortar and pestles (depends how many spots you want to farm) . For the best areas it will be the volcano and the blue obelisk drop a fabricator and a refining for in a spot where no resources spawn (they won't spawn anymore if you do. best spots are up on the rims of the mountains.) From your base you will need to bring some gas (fuel for the fabricator) cementing paste (easiest way to get that is the beaver dams or tame a couple achatinas, don't waste your chitin crafting it unless you don't use it) and electronics as much as you can get your hands on for both. Now with everything in place gather everything with anky and dump the rock and flint into the mortar (for spark powder) metal into the forge (for metal ingots) and the rest into the fabricator craft tons of fridges for transport each fridge turns 150 kilos into 4 kilos. Now that you have it all set up you can go back and forth with only having to worry about hauling fridges to set up and tear down at your main base giving you all the raw materials back. You can do this with other flyers since you can haul 1500 kilos of mats in 40 kilos of fridges so for fast runs take a pteranodon. This is just what I've learned. Hope it helps you guys out. Hope it helps! Play smart and survive!
Dodics get great crystal in extinction hitting chairs
In aberration is a pretty easy to find in early game you just have to spawn at the portal run out of the portal jump into the lake and go to the little island and there are a few crystals there (it’s also a good base spot)
Magmasour is better than mantis with metal picks
I find crystal on top of like rock hills and a tip is if you see argis by a rock hill there will be crystal but look there might not be but you can still kill them anyways
