The Insulation Potion will increase all party members’ Electro RES by 25% for 300 seconds, which will help when farming more Electro Crystals as well as fighting many Electro bosses. Another item Electro Crystals are used for is the Shocking Essential Oil which requires 1x Electro Crystal along with 1x Frog (material) and 100x Mora. This item will increase all party members’ Electro DMG by 25% for 300 seconds.

The last item that requires Electro Crystals is the NRE (Menu 30) gadget. This item requires 50x Electro Crystal, 20x Lizard Tail, and 20x Chaos Circuit. Players will be able to use recovery food and other revival-type food from a hot bar when this item is equipped.
