Cruor is the standard currency of Abyssea. It is described as a red, natural mineral found in deposits on monsters within Abyssea. The Resistance uses Cruor to power its resistance effort.
- The usual way to obtain it is by killing monsters and completing quests in Abyssea. It can also be found within blue chests.
- The amount of Cruor gained from killing monsters varies from 10-120 depending on lights and the size of the monster.
- To farm Cruor and get ~500 per kill, you must alternate the kills between monster types - i.e., opposite to an experience chain. As you alternate you build the Cruor chain. Building Silvery light (only from Red chests) increases this further. See Abyssea Lights for further details.
For a list of obtainable gear and items through trading Cruor, see Cruor Prospector.
Cruor derives from latin. It means splitting blood, or also a bleeding wound. The word was used to describe the most bloody fights in the roman history. Cruor is gained by killing monsters in Abyssea; this is connected to the fact that a kill means a bloodshed.
