Trim crystals are a type of crystal that are utilized on airships. They control a ship's secondary movements and maneuverability; and they helped adjust the altitude. They are barely usable without a main Lift Crystal.

Description Edit

Eight green-white crystals, the size of a man's head.[1]

Cost Edit

  • Expensive but considered a standard operating cost.


New Trim Crystals Edit

New trim crystals can be more efficient and more sensitive to varying degrees of currents. They make a ship more maneuverable.[1]

Details Edit

  • using trim crystals to maintain altitude when the Lift Crystals is down is hard on them.
  • the Aetherium Fleet snatches them up as quickly as they're produced.[1]

Events Edit
