# 1 Lobi Crystals

I was wondering: what exactly is a good way to earn lobi crystals?

Opening lockboxes..... or waiting for one of the events that reward them for replaying featured episodes. That's it, no other way.

Earn energy credits, buy lock box keys, open boxes, get ~5 lobi per box.

Earn dil, buy zen, buy lockbox keys or (right now) R & D packs, open, get ~5 or 10 lobi. Don't buy the R & D packs on the exchange, they do not contain lobi.

If you're extremely lucky, opening a lock box or R&D pack will get you a ship you can sell for massive amounts of energy credits, which you can use to buy more lock box keys.

Yeah - lobi cannot be "earned" by any in-game method most of the time, other than opening lockboxes. Sometimes, during special promotions, they are added to other purchaseables like the R&D or officer packs.

Periodically, there are special events where they are able to be earned or given away. The "Episode Replay" event, last run I believe in May or June, allowed players to earn 15/day by replaying episodes from a particular list (some of which also had special limited-edition rewards added). There was also a weekend around the time of the DR launch were anyone who logged in could simply talk to a contact and claim 20/day.

Both of those were one per account per day, by the way, so you couldn't get a lot. I think a maximum over the whole nine months I've been playing of about.... 240 or so?

We're overdue for a featured episode replay. We haven't had one since May.

Agreed. I suspect it will show up very shortly after the end of the Winter Event. I was kinda expecting it in November, actually.

Considering the Graphics bug and the Gameclient.exe crashing that a lot of people are having, i really hope they fix those before doing any other events. I've already been unable to participate in the Elachi event, and the Winter event isn't faring much better. Hopefully, once they fix the issues keeping people from being able to play properly, they do a replay though. I always run through for the lobi as well as getting items for new characters or missed items for some.

there was also a log in event where you got lobi every day for a week or so. I am sure it was not the first either.

It was three days. In September, and I covered that in my list.
