The process of bonding with Core Crystals is largely random, but we're keeping tabs on the unique Blades you'll find.


The pursuit of cool and unique Blades will push you to explore every corner of Alrest in Xenoblade Chronicles 2 as you search for more and more Core Crystals to bond your Drivers to. It's unknown at this time how many unique Blades there are in full or when Monolith Soft will start throwing in additional Blades like KOS-MOS from Xenosaga, but we're keeping tabs on the ones discovered. Bookmark this Guide so you can check back regularly to see who we've found!

How To Unlock Rare Blades

The unique Blades that you bond with can be found via Rare or even Common Core Crystals. There are some that will come via plot advancement, like Wulfric and Roc, but this guide is just tracking the unique Blades received when bonding with Core Crystals you find in the wild. Blades will be either ATK (Attack), HLR (Healer), and TNK (Tank) specialists.
