Novacrystal is a crafting component in Monster Hunter World. It is used to craft various Weapons, Armor and Upgrades.
Item Description: High quality Lightcrystal. Highly coveted for its rarity. it’s used for only the finest of metalworking.
Location: Novacrystal is randomly mined from red Mining Outcrops in the following regions:
(Map Locations in Red Circles)
- Wildspire Waste (Red Ore) –> It’s a rare drop, you may need to mine all of these locations multiple times to get it.
Available only on High-Rank Difficulty (6 Stars+)
You can get it from any of these outcrops. It’s best that you go from outcrop to outcrop and mine all of them until it drops. Then fast travel to another map to make everything respawn and go again.
The way mining works is that each map has 3-6 specific types of ore. Each outcrop on that map can drop any of that ore. It’s slightly random. So ore is not restricted to one outcrop, but rather to a certain map.
