Resources-Chronos crystals.jpg



Chrono crystals allow agents to hunt a specified number of times with no cooldown between those hunts, in addition to their normal hunts. The basic chrono crystal, awarded to all agents,has a crystal capacity of 6, meaning it gives each agent the chance to make 6 power hunts (at speed) on their own schedule.

The crystal is a renewable resource, and can be recharged after each use or set of uses to enable future power hunts.


To fully recharge a basic chrono crystal takes a total of 6 hours during which you are not hunting actively.

That's because the basic chrono crystal recharge period for a single hunt is one hour-long period in which you do not hunt actively and have only an auto-hunt and friend-led hunts.

Recharge time

There are several pieces of equipment that you can add to your setup to reduce the time it takes your chrono crystal to recharge. See the list on the chrono crystal recharge time page.

The recharge period can be reduced depending on your equipment, collection bonuses, etc., but not below 15 minutes.

Beyond the basic

Other types of crystals, described briefly on this page and in more detail on their individual pages, can each be acquired as a thank-you for a donation and offer agents a larger number of power hunts and additional features.

Power hunts

Each hunt you can make based on a crystal charge in your chrono crystal is known as a power hunt.

Monster hunting with power boosts

If you use your power hunts in quick succession and are also hunting monsters, your journal may show multiple different monsters being attracted, or may show a monster being missed while another monster is awaiting assist clicks.

That is because the order of the ghosts shown in the journal may in fact be slightly out of sync with the monsters caught/attracted.

Active crystal

You can only have one crystal of each type in your inventory.

You can only have one crystal active in your setup. If you have more than one crystal in your inventory, the best crystal will be activated automatically (the crystal with the largest number of available charges and/or shortest cooldown time).

Additional info


All crystals work on the same principle. There is an image of the crystal next to your normal "Let's hunt" button. If the crystal has a charge-level of at least 1, you will be able to power hunt with the crystal during the cooldown between normal hunts.

To power hunt, hover your mouse over the crystal icon until the "Let's hunt" button changes to "Power hunt". Click on the "Power hunt" button, and you will have one ghost hunt and one charge will be deducted from your crystal. If you have charges remaining in the crystal, you can immediately make another power hunt. Power hunts have no cooldown requirement.

Power hunts do not affect the cooldown time for your normal hunting, and they are not affected by the hunting cooldown time of your setup.

Leprechaun's luck does not affect a power hunt (so even if you see leprechaun's luck on a power hunt, you do not gain an additional hunt.

You cannot use power hunts during a raid.

As noted above, attracting/catching/missing a monster during a rapid series of power hunts may show the monsters in incorrect order in your journal.


Each type of crystal has its own recharge time. The recharge time is the number of minutes of continuously-inactive hunting that must pass before the crystal re-energizes a charge. Each time you press the "Let's hunt" button, you are resetting the beginning of the recharge period. Hunts initiated by friends and automatic trap checks will not restart the recharge period. Charging time may be reduced by having certain items in your inventory (See chrono crystal recharge time page). Minimum recharging time is 15 minutes.

Items that affect chrono crystal capacity

See the crystal capacity page for information on items that can affect the total number of power hunts your crystal can enable.
