Crystal seed detail.png

A crystal seed is what is left behind once crystal equipment runs out of charges. A crystal seed is awarded to the player upon completion of the Roving Elves quest. They can also be purchased for 540,000 reward points each at the Bounty Hunter Store.

The crystal seed is converted back into crystal equipment by means of chanting; Ilfeen is the only one to offer this service to the player. She is found teleporting back and forth between two clearings in Isafdar. Players can then choose between a crystal bow or a crystal shield. For the same price as a shield, a crystal halberd is also available to players who have completed the Hard Western provinces diary.


For the first four times a crystal seed is converted into equipment, the cost of Ilfeen's next service is decreased by 180,000 or 150,000 coins depending on what equipment the player requests. The initial price of bows and shields/halberds are 900,000 and 750,000 coins respectively. The minimum price for bows and shields/halberds are 180,000 and 150,000 coins respectively.

Please note that the price of re-enchantment is contingent on the number of crystal seeds Ilfeen has recharged, and not on the number of individual equipment pieces she has recharged. For example, a player who pays Ilfeen 900,000 coins to re-enchant a crystal seed into a crystal bow would then only have to pay her 600,000 coins to recharge a seed into a crystal shield. Therefore, players who wish to stock up on many pieces of equipment are advised to pay for the shields or halberds first.

  • The book, 'Crystal of seren', states that there is no known way to destroy a crystal seed. However, players are able to do so through the bank's incinerator feature.
  • Once the equipment runs out of charges, the crystal seed remains "equipped" by the player, but it offers no stats and results in unarmed combat.
  • Although crystal seeds are rarely found by players, their exchange price has steadily declined as it is very rare for a player to lose a seed without discarding it on purpose. Moreover, it is available from the Bounty Hunter store and due to being a very popular boss, Zulrah's rare crystal seed drop has been encountered many times.
