Act IV: Automaton Front

Thunder Crystal is the currency that has just become available today (July 30, 2021). You can obtain it after completing the domain Automaton Front.

You will have to defeat the new Inazuma boss, Perpetual Mechanic Array, the new type of Automaton. This boss is similar to the one you battle near Narukami Island, where you can get ascension material for Ayaka.

However, in this domain, there is a boost that will benefit electro characters, including AoE bursts attacks, with the presence of Thunder Dwelling and Nimbus Gems.
