Best way to farm Herald Sacrificial Materials in Xenoblade Chronicles 2

As you start exploring Theosir in Xenoblade Chronicles 2, you will come across a cracked wall in Theospiti Temple. Behind this wall is an altar that requires 100 offerings to unlock the sealed core crystal that this temple enshrines. Inside the Sealed Core Crystal is a mighty blade called the Herald that is worth going through this struggle to acquire. This guide will inform you on the best way to farm Herald Sacrificial Materials in Xenoblade Chronicles 2.

The fastest way to farm Herald materials in Xenoblade Chronicles 2

The fastest way to farm Herald materials in Xenoblade Chronicles 2 is to go for a particular material called Poison Flash. You can gift nine different types of materials to this shrine to unlock Herald, and each material counts as one gift, so you need to farm 100 items in total.

Poison Flash is the easiest material to acquire, but you need one main thing before you can do it enough. You need many blades with the Ichthyology field skill, as these skills can stack, allowing you to find rarer items and get more collection points.

Blades like Pandoria, which you will now have, have the Ichthyology domain skill. It will be beneficial if you have rare Nim and Ursala Blades, but any regular Blade with Ichthyology is fine. Once you have them, throw them into your party.

Next, you want to open Skip Travel and head to Temperantia, Peninsula, and Battlescar Cove. When you’ve spawned in this destination, immediately look to your left and spot a gathering point in the fog. Interact with this point and collect all the fish there. Press X twice then A to quickly travel to Battlescar Cove again. Rinse and repeat until you have 100 Poison Flash.
