This guide will provide step by step instructions on how to navigate the Crystal UI in game, acquire the materials necessary to begin creating Dyads, and list the Primary and Secondary Dyad effects available in game. Provided is a tier list for Dyads that will update as needed in later content.
If you are a newer player, it is recommended you focus on completing your gear and glyphs before attempting to make Dyads.
All About Dyads
What is a Dyad?
Dyads represent the highest tier of crystals available in Tera at the moment. They have stronger effects than their Niveot counterparts, never break, and provide a secondary effect. Most importantly, Dyads bind to the gear you first equip them to forever. Dyad crystals are difficult to obtain because of the layers of RNG necessary to start fusing in bulk.
Creating a Dyad
Before starting here are a few things to note:
After your UI is up, you simply click on the Crystals and Dyad Niveot Structure then hit Fuse:
You can also fuse three Dyads you don’t want together as long as the colours match to create a new Dyad.
Getting Dyad Niveot Structures
Here are the ways you can get your hands on a Dyad Niveot Structure. Careful though, getting a lot of them won’t be easy.
In a process similar to making Dyads you can fuse Cruxes into Niveots. For this you will need a Niveot Structure and 3 Cruxes that are the same colour.
Which Effects Do I Want?
Critical attacks recover 60 MP when attacking from behind. Stacks up to 4 times.
Restore 11 MP every 5 seconds.
Increase max MP by 66.
Restores 63 MP when knocked down.
Do 2.4% more damage when attacking prone targets.
Restore 21 MP when attacking another player.
Remember that the best way to become familiar with the system for making Dyads is to get in game and work with it. Also, remember the tier list guides you through what is generally the best choice. I’ll be updating the list with content and feedback!
Thank you to the members of Essential Mana for reviews and help with the guide.
Once again thank you Saltyolive and Floss for feedback and getting things written out.
With feedback I’d like to refine the look of the guide and add content in places that aren’t explained well.I’d also like to change around the colours when it comes to certain Dyad effects. I’m open to feedback.
I’ll add info on Smart Dyads if there is any news of them showing up again.
