With the new game patch 4.2.7 released on May 5, 2019, Com2us introduced a new in-game currency, called Ancient Crystals. They are the second Ancient Currency, next to Ancient Coins, which share similar purposes.
Ancient Crystals are a currency item used to purchase items from the Ancient Crystal Shop. They can only be obtained by crafting and not be purchased by packs or Crystals. Every crafting gets the player 300 Ancient Crystals.
Like with Ancient Coins, it is not possible to get them through in-game purchases. However, as they can be crafted in the Craft building, collecting a vast amount of Ancient Crystals seems possible. Unfortunately, the crafting recipe is quite expensive.

How do you make Ancient Crystals?
Before you can get your hands on a few Ancient Crystals, you have to obtain a few resources, which require you to have a few 6-Star monsters at best.
To craft Ancient Crystals, the player has to obtain 20x Crystals from each of the five Rift Beasts, 150.000 Mana Stones, and one default 5-Star monster. Monsters evolved to 6-Star, acquired via Fusion or Ifrit Scroll, cannot be used as crafting materials.
Note: To craft Ancient Crystals open the Craft building, select “Others,” then Ancient Crystal. Select a default 5-Star monster, and select “Craft” to craft 300x Ancient Crystals.
Sacrificing a Nat-5 seems quite overpriced at first glance, but it is worth it, especially for players with many duplicates. You see, with those Crystals, you can buy a Splendid Blessing of Summon.
With this item, whenever a player summons a default 5-Star monster, an additional Monster with the same default grade will be summoned, and the player can choose one out of two monsters.
What should I spend Ancient Crystals on in Summoners war?
The Ancient Magic Shop has just a few items, but they are very valuable. With enough Crystals, players can purchase four different items, ranging from 40 to 275 Ancient Crystals in price.
The Splendid Blessing of Summon is one of the best items in Summoners War and should be purchased at least once. After the player has reached the desired amount of Blessings, Legend Runes and Grindstones should be the next priority.
That said, if you don’t need a Blessing of Summon because you do not own a vast amount of default 5-Star monsters, I recommend buying the Legend Runes first. If you have quite a few Nat-5s, it is recommended to get at least one Blessing.
Here’s a list of all items that can be purchased by Ancient Crystals:
|Splendid Blessing of Summon||275||Max. 3|
|6-Star Legend Rune||180||No Limits|
|Legend Grindstone/Gem||85||No Limits|
|Reappraisal Stone||40||5 per Month|
