Elemental Crystals (EC) have an infinite supply and can only be minted by playing the Elemental Raiders game. EC are needed to upgrade most of the assets in game and increase their power and value.
Elemental Crystals can be earned by winning games in PvP and in some PvE events. Players can also trade EC in the game exchange.
All the Elemental Crystals that are used for upgrading assets in game are burned. Here is how.
EC burn in Elemental Raiders upgrades
There are different burning mechanics that the players need to use to level up and increase the overall power of their build. The mechanics are designed to battle the inflation of Elemental Crystal tokens and sustain their value.
Convert non-NFT skill to NFT skill
All players can mint non-NFT skills and upgrade them to NFT skills at any time. The levels won’t be lost and will be upgraded accordingly.
The cost of converting non-NFT skills to NFT skills is 100 EC plus a number of $GGT equivalent to 10$ fiat value. The number of $GGT will be determined by the actual token price at the moment of minting, but the table below offers an approximate idea of costs.
Cost of skill NFT upgrades
Re-roll random mastery upgrade of skills
Once a mastery is upgraded, because there is some random number generation involved in the process, the player can re-roll at a cost of 20 EC.
Purchase of bags of Rune Stones (RS)
Players can purchase additonal bags of Rune Stones at the following price:
1,000 Rune Stones at a cost of 60 EC or $GGT
10,000 Rune Stones at a cost of 500 EC or $GGT
100,000 Rune Stones at a cost of 4,500 EC or $GGT
After winning a match, players in possession of an Arena ticket will be rewarded with EC. The amount of EC will depend on the players’ rating. There are a total of 15 Arena rating tiers: lower tiers earn less EC and higher tiers earn more EC.
Listed below are all the EC gained after winning a PvP match, depending on the rating of the player.
Elemental Raiders seasons
Every 60 days there will be a new season of Elemental Raiders, and all Arena ratings will be soft reset depending on your current amount of rating. This mechanic gives everyone a fair chance to start climbing again from the same level.
The numbers below are only an example of possible end-of-season prizes and depends on the amount of $GGT spent during the season. You can read more on this topic in the Game earnings distribution section.
