How To Unlock All Rare Blades In Xenoblade Chronicles 2

Xenoblade Chronicles 2 introduces the concept of Blades, fighters who will assist you by giving you access to elements and techniques when fighting enemies. You will have encountered a regular Blade during Chapter 2, but these are generic and can easily be found when using Core Crystals. Rare Blades are unique and have more abilities than generic Blades, but are harder to find. They either require luck when using Core Crystals, or are obtained in other circumstances.

You will encounter a number of Rare Blades throughout the game, but others will take some time to discover. Completing them all is no small task, but it will be worth the effort when you have a powerful roster. If you aren’t sure how to obtain any of the Rare Blades, this list will cover all of them and the method of obtaining them.

This list will have spoilers; proceed ahead at your own discretion.

All Rare Blades Obtained In The Story

1. Pyra

Pyra will be the first Rare Blade that you obtain, and she will naturally enter your party in Chapter 1. Obtaining her will be your first introduction to using Blades in combat, as well as understanding how to make your Blades more powerful.

You will be stuck with Pyra for a while until you learn about using Core Crystals, which allows you to add more Blades into your party. Even then, her abilities and utility will continue to be useful throughout the entire game.

2. Dromarch

Dromarch will join your party along with Nia as his Driver during the events of Chapter 2. While he will disappear for a while, he will eventually join your party as one of the main characters.

1659687593 906 How To Unlock All Rare Blades In Xenoblade Chronicles 2Screenshot by Techkrant

Dromarch will be your first introduction to a Blade’s utility, as he specializes in healing than offense. He is still a powerful fighter, and you will learn how to work with different Blade roles in combat.

3. Poppi

Poppi is an artificial Blade obtained in Chapter 2 when Tora wants to help you with your mission. After helping Tora build Poppi, she will join your team as its second Blade until rescuing Nia and Dromarch.

1659687593 615 How To Unlock All Rare Blades In Xenoblade Chronicles 2Screenshot by Techkrant

Poppi’s introduction will fill your team out with a Tank, creating the solid early-game Blade combo of Attacker-Healer-Tank. She will teach you about how to power artificial Blades through the Tiger! Tiger! minigame. She will be Tora’s only Blade and it will take a lot of effort to strengthen her, but she will become a powerful partner if you choose to invest in her.

4. Mythra

Mythra will be obtained during the events of Chapter 3. Unlike other Blades, she doesn’t enter your party per se, but will be able to switch places with Pyra in combat, giving Rex access to two Blades in one slot.

1657780051 612 De 12 beste zeldzame bladen in Xenoblade Chronicles 2Screenshot by Techkrant

Mythra will be your first chance to use the rare Light element for Chain Attacks, and you will learn to use her and Pyra together for devastating effects.

5. Roc

After the events of Chapter 3, you will obtain Roc’s Core Crystal. It isn’t until Chapter 4 that you will be able to use it, as you will need Roc’s help to overcome an obstacle.

1659687593 666 How To Unlock All Rare Blades In Xenoblade Chronicles 2Screenshot by Techkrant

While this isn’t the first opportunity to use a Blade to deal with external obstacles, this will be the first story event which demonstrates how Blades can be used to access new areas, reveal new paths, or find items.

6. Poppi QT

Poppi QT will be introduced during the latter half of Chapter 4, after investigating the outbreak of artificial Blades that are coming out of Mor Ardain. It is a new form of Poppi, and will be added to Tora’s Blade line-up after you learn how to use it.

1659687593 207 How To Unlock All Rare Blades In Xenoblade Chronicles 2Screenshot by Techkrant

While Poppi QT will join as a Tank role (just like Poppi), you will have more utility and elements open to Tora, as he can now switch Blades. This gives Tora more options during battle, though you will also need to play Tiger! Tiger! to get the most out of Poppi QT.

7. Brighid

While you meet Brighid in Chapter 2, she will not formally join your party until Chapter 5. Her Driver Mòrag will join your party, and Brighid will come along as well.

1659687593 683 How To Unlock All Rare Blades In Xenoblade Chronicles 2Screenshot by Techkrant

Brighid won’t necessarily add anything new in terms of utility, as you already have Pyra for the Fire element and Poppi as a Tank. However, Brighid’s appearance will introduce the idea of switching Drivers in combat, which opens up significantly more options than before.

8. Pandoria

Just like Brighid, you will meet Pandoria as early as Chapter 3. You won’t learn much about her until Chapter 5, where she will formally join your party along with her Driver Zeke.

1659687593 81 How To Unlock All Rare Blades In Xenoblade Chronicles 2Screenshot by Techkrant

As with Brighid, Pandoria’s appearance doesn’t necessarily bring anything unique. She will be the second Attacker Blade and the first chance to get the Electric element, which gives you even more options when it comes to combat teams.

9. Aegaeon

Aegaeon will be obtained during the events of Chapter 6, though unlike other Rare Blades obtained in the story, he will come in his Core Crystal and must be activated in order to join your party.

1659687593 88 How To Unlock All Rare Blades In Xenoblade Chronicles 2Screenshot by Techkrant

Only Mòrag can use his Core Crystal, and it is an odd case where you can actually go the entire game without using Aegaeon if you don’t want to. However, he makes a good addition to Morag’s line-up and defensive abilities, giving her the Water element for Chain Attacks.

10. Nia

Nia will be obtained during the events of Chapter 7, where she will reveal herself to be a Blade. While Nia will remain as a Blade, she is capable of switching between being a Blade and a Driver (but not during combat).

1659687593 517 How To Unlock All Rare Blades In Xenoblade Chronicles 2Screenshot by Techkrant

Nia can only be used by Rex, but she is one of the best Healers in the game. Her Blade abilities are not shared with her Driver persona, and she will have her own Blade ability tree to develop.

11. Pneuma

Pneuma will also be introduced in Chapter 7. Her overwhelming power will be on display in Chapter 7, but after that she will only be accessible once per battle for a short time.

1659687593 784 How To Unlock All Rare Blades In Xenoblade Chronicles 2Screenshot by Techkrant

Pneuma can only be activated if Rex is in your team and you have a full Party Gauge. If she is activated, she will take the place of Pyra/Mythra and Rex can’t use another Blade until her time runs out. She also can’t equip any Aux Cores, develop her abilities, or raise her Trust. However, she can access every single element for a Chain Attack, and Rex is unable to fall in battle as long as Pneuma is active.

All Optional Rare Blades Obtained From Core Crystals

For the Blades obtained through Core Crystals, any Core Crystal will do (whether it is Common, Rare, or Legendary). However, Legendary Core Crystals have the best chance of producing Rare Blades, while Common Core Crystals have the worst (Rare Core Crystals are in the middle).

Some Blades are placed into groups based on your save file (which is a value invisible to you) that makes their appearance more likely/less likely, with five groups in total. It doesn’t make a significant difference in the long run (because probability doesn’t mean certainty), and you will be able to obtain all of them with enough time. What it means is that you may obtain some Blades before other players, and vice versa.

Some Blades will be classified as “pity” Rare Blades. If you continually fail to get Rare Blades from your Core Crystals, the chance of a “pity” Blade showing up increases until it is essentially guaranteed. The “pity Blade counter” will then reset upon obtaining a Rare Blade.

If you release a Rare Blade from this list, they will go back into the Core Crystal draws, but with significantly better chances of reappearing.

12. Godfrey

Godfrey is a Rare Blade that you can obtain from using Core Crystals. His appearance rates are decent and he is likely to appear after using enough Core Crystals. If your save file happens to be in Group 1 or 2, he is one of the “pity” Blades who becomes more likely to appear after summoning a regular Blade.

Unlike the previous list, these Rare Blades have their own Core Crystal, which will guarantee their appearance once used.

33. Wulfric

Wulfric is met in Chapter 3 as part of the Elder Arachno boss fight when working with Vandham. Upon winning, you will receive the Beastly Core Crystal, which will allow you to use Wulfric in your own team.

This may take a few tries, but you will battle the Gluttonous Marrin after one salvage trip. Upon its defeat, it will drop the Lucky Core Crystal, which will give you Kasandra upon activation.

37. Sheba

Sheba can actually be obtained as early as Chapter 2, though it will be a lot of work. You must visit the Margia’s Odds and Ends store, run by Kassa in Gormott. The store will sell the Inherited Core Crystal at a whopping 500,000 G. Once you buy it, you can use it to add Sheba to your party.

It will take a lot of salvage dives, but if you have the patience, you can afford the Core Crystal. If you speak to Kassa with Sheba active, he will reimburse you for half of the amount that you paid, giving you 250,000 G in return. However, you must still buy the Inherited Core Crystal at full price before this happens.

When Chapter 8 starts, visit Tora’s Home in Gormott to start the “Powered-Up Poppi” side quest. Upon finishing the side quest, Poppi QTπ will fill out the last of Tora’s Blade slots.

1657780051 534 De 12 beste zeldzame bladen in Xenoblade Chronicles 2Screenshot by Techkrant

All Rare Blades Obtained in New Game Plus

You can then find him at the base of the World Tree (Megaflote Base in the Land of Morytha), where speaking to him will have him join your party.
