The Life Crystal is an item mined from Life Crystal Ore which generates deep in the Lake Cavern layer in the Betweenlands. It is required in an Animator for the animation process and can also be used optionally in various other machine blocks, including the Mortar and Infuser, to automate their processes. It has limited charge and is drained of a varying amount of charge whenever it is used in a process (this is indicated both in the crystal's tooltip and in its coloration as it grows darker with decreasing charge). If it reaches 0% charge, or if it doesn't have enough charge required, it will not function in the process. It can, fortunately, be recharged.
- 1 uncharged Life Crystal + between 1 and 8 Wight's Hearts = 1 charged Life Crystal (shapeless, restores 12-13% charge per heart added)
- 1 Moss (item) + 1 Slimy Bone + 1 Life Crystal = 1 Swamp Talisman
- Beta 1.0.2: Fixed broken charge recipe.
- Charge recipe can now receive any number of Wight's Hearts.
- Beta 1.0.0: Introduced.
