For those who have not completed games in the Xenoblade Chronicles series, this page contains spoilers regarding the plot. Discretion is advised.

Legendary Core Crystals are Core Crystal in Xenoblade Chronicles 2. They can awake a Common or a Rare Blade, and have a better chance of awakening Rare Blades than Common Core Crystals or Rare Core Crystals. They can be obtained from defeating high leveled Enemies, and more commonly drop after inflicting Smash, in particular Unique Monsters such as Relentless Arduran.

Superbosses all have a drop rate of 10%, higher than all other monsters. All enemies that drop Legendary Core Crystals also drop Rare Core Crystals, and all except Amalthus and the Superbosses drop Common Core Crystals.

In New Game Plus, they can also be obtained from a Traveling Bard in Fonsa Myma, Uraya by trading 200,000 Bonus EXP.

Dropped By

Notes: This table is ordered highest to lowest by enemy level after drop rate.
