Genshin Impact is celebrating the holidays with a new area called Dragonspine and a few events, including The Chalk Prince and The Dragon. This event runs until January 6, so players are on a time crunch. That's where Rime Worn Fragments and Crystals come in. You'll need these new collectible materials to complete Act 1. Here's how to gather Rime Worn Fragments and Crystals in Genshin Impact.
Genshin Impact Rime Worn Fragments and Crystals guide
To gain access to Rime Worn Fragment/Crystal drops you will need to complete the Festering Desire quest. Once that's done, you will be able to find Rime Worn Fragments and Crystals, but only in Dragonspine and only from enemy drops.
All enemies in this region can potentially drop Rime Worn Fragments and Crystals. Fragments have a higher drop rate than Crystals, but both are fairly infrequent. There are also enemies that seem to drop Rime Worn Fragments and some that seem to drop Rime Worn Crystals more often:
Enemies that drop Rime Worn Fragments
- Cryo Potioneer Treasure Hoarders and Crushers
- Cryo Samachurl
- Ice Shield Hilichurl Guard
- Cryo Hilichurl Grenadier
- Electro-Hammer Vanguard Fatui Skirmisher
- Pyro-Slinger Bracer Fatui Skirmisher
- Geochanter Bracer Fatui Skirmisher
- Cryo Cicin
Enemies that drop Rime Worn Crystals
- Ruin Grader
- Frostarm Lawachurl
- Ice Shieldwall Mitachurl
- Fatui Cryo Cicin Mage
- Pyro Abyss Mage
When hunting enemies in Dragonspine, be sure to either keep a Pyro character in your party, or focus your effort into leveling up the Frostbearing Tree so you can get the Warming Bottle. Using these strategies will allow you to defend yourself from Snowstorms and Sheer Cold.
Again, any enemy in the Dragonspine region can drop both Rime Worn Fragments and Rime Worn Crystals, but keep an eye out for the above enemies for a better shot at getting them. And don't forget, you will need to gather these as quickly as you can, since you will need them to finish Act 1 of The Chalk Prince and The Dragon before the event ends on January 6.
