Genshin Impact Comprehensive Guide to Daily Magic Crystal Ore Spawn Locations and Behavior By: Acidmagic

I’ve spent a week gathering data on the daily magic crystal ore spawn locations and behavior. I obtained 50-70 crystal chunks checking these spots each day, with additional ore coming from natural spawns in the same area. The daily cap on crafting weapon EXP is 30 mystic enhancement ore, which would consume 120 crystal chunks. Combined with ore from expeditions, this amount will still fall a bit short but provides a consistent source of daily weapon EXP.

Mondstadt Mining Locations

Liyue Mining Locations

Notes on Behavior

  • Each magic crystal ore spawn will include 2-3 Magic Crystal Ore nodes and 2 Crystal Ore nodes
  • Each region spawns a set number of magic crystal ore each day, randomly chosen within select locations
    • Mondstadt spawns up to 6 locations daily
    • Liyue spawns up to 10 locations daily
      • Only found 9 Day 7 but may have missed a location

  • Spawn locations are clustered by location
    • If any ore spawns in one location, more of that location will tend to have spawns
    • Mondstadt
      • Stormterror Lair – If one spawns, all 6 Mondstadt spawns will be in Stormterror
    • Liyue
      • Guyun Stone Forest – If one spawns, all 4 locations will spawn – Remaining spawns will be in Southwest Liyue
      • Qingyun Peak – If one spawns, all 10 spawns will be chosen from the 11 locations shared between Qingyun Peak, Mt. Aozang, and North.

  • Smith and NPC Marking
    • Talking to NPCs or smiths does not seem to affect spawn behavior
      • On Day 2 of collecting data, Wagner marked only two locations, which I mined. I then spoke to draff and he re-marked one location, which seemed to have respawned the ore there. I spoke to him again and he then re-marked the other location, which also seemed to have respawned the ore. This behavior has not been seen again.
      • This may have been an issue with not re-logging after the daily reset, which may not have allowed the map to reset itself.
    • The Mondstadt smith will mark 3 locations
      • Doolan, Davy, and Draff will only mark their corresponding preset locations. If their locations did not spawn, they will not mark anything. These locations may not be comprehensive.
      • Doolan – Temple 1
      • Draff – Draff 1 and Draff 2 – Note, Draff can only mark one location at a time. If you mine his first location and speak to him again, he may mark the second location if it has spawned.
      • Davy – Brightcrown 1
    • The Liyue smith will mark 5 locations
      • Pan Guan’er, Iron Shoulder, and Shizuang will only mark their corresponding preset locations. If their locations did not spawn, they will not mark anything. These locations may not be comprehensive.
      • Pan Guan’er – North 1, Qingyun 5, Possibly any of Qingyun/Aozang
      • Iron Shoulder – Tianheng 1, Lingju 2, Possibly any of Southwest Liyue
      • Shizuang – Dunyu 1
    • All ore must be mined to remove the marker from the map

  • If a crystal ore location is not mined, it will naturally despawn itself the next day
  • Ore respawn is not tied to a 24 hour respawn. It may be on daily reset or some shorter timer, such as 16 or 20 hours. Requires more testing.
  • Natural Crystal Spawns do not seem to affect Magic Crystal Ore spawn behavior
