KH2.5 Twilight Crystal Farming (Locations & Uses)

Sorcerers are the only enemies that drop Twilight Crystals. And these rare Nobodies appear only in two locations:

  • The World that Never Was – Naught’s Approach
  • Cavern of Remembrance – Transport to Remembrance

Of these two locations, the best place to farm would be Naught’s Approach. There are two guaranteed Sorcerers that spawn here, as well as a save point right next door.

So you can farm them for drops, then immediately return to the world map to reset the spawns & repeat.

Sorcerers do appear in the Cavern of Remembrance. But it’s totally random whether they show up or not, and they’re also much harder to defeat here.

So it’s easier all around to stick with farming Twilight Crystals in The World that Never Was.

Sorcerers have a 12% chance of dropping a Twilight Crystal. This can be increased by equipping as many Lucky Lucky abilities as you can.

You’ll need 9 Twilight Crystals to synthesize one of everything that requires them.


How To Farm Sorcerers

Sorcerers summon an array of laser cubes, which they use both for attack and defense.

Physical attacks just bounce right off.

These cubes generally only cover the front side of the Sorcerer, so if you’re nimble then you can get underneath them to strike their backsides.

Tip: If you’re quick, you can also defeat the Sorcerer right when they appear, even before they can summon their squares.

Reflect magic is also super handy for these fights.

A well-timed Reflect can knock back their cube attacks and deal severe damage, if not one-hit them entirely.

Magnet magic also stuns these fellas for a few seconds, creating a brief opening for your keyblade to deal some damage.

Sorcerers understandably have a remarkably high magic resistance, so physical attacks are your best bet here.

Twilight Crystals are one of the most important synthesis items.

You’ll need them for everything from Mythril Crystals, all the way up to the Ultima Weapon in KH2.

In fact, Twilight Crystals will likely be the only ingredient stopping you from making the Ultima Weapon before entering The World That Never Was, since you can’t fight Sorcerers anywhere else.

Mythril Crystals are important too, though. Which makes Twilight Crystals even more important.

It’s no wonder these things are so well-guarded!
