How do you get Dragon Krystals in Mortal Kombat 1? Mortal Kombat 1 may represent a major reboot for the legendary fighting game franchise, but there are plenty of familiar faces and systems that NetherRealm Studios has retained from installments past – microtransactions included. That’s right, Krystals are back, though whereas MK11 had Time Krystals, MK1 has Dragon Krystals. So, if you want to snag some premium goodies, you’re going to need to know how to get Dragon Krystals in Mortal Kombat 1.

Before we get into that though, you’ll want to acquaint yourself with all the Mortal Kombat 1 characters, as well as the Mortal Kombat 1 character tier list – there’s no point making it rain on a useless fighter, after all (unless you’re planning to main them, of course). Additionally, you’ll need to know how to change your skin in Mortal Kombat 1 for if or when you do take the plunge and pick up a new wardrobe of cosmetics.

How to get Dragon Krystals in Mortal Kombat 1

The only known ways to get Dragon Krystals in Mortal Kombat 1 currently are either through purchasing them from the in-game store, or as a free bonus when purchasing either the Premium or Kollector’s Edition of the game.

Dragon Krystals can be purchased from the MK1 in-game store in the following quantities:

  • 500
  • 1,250 (1,000 + 250)
  • 2,700 (2,000 + 700)
  • 5,900 (4,000 + 1,900)

Meanwhile, the MK1 Premium Edition comes with 1,250 Dragon Krystals, while the Kollector’s Edition will supply you with 2,700 Dragon Krystals.

Should Dragon Krystals work similarly to how Time Crystals did in MK11, then you will also be able to earn them in-game. In MK11, Time Crystals were rewarded for leveling up, as well as for clearing Towers or Race Against Time events – provided you placed highly enough on the leaderboard. As such, we expect Dragon Krystals will also be obtainable through a combination of progression and mastery over Invasions and Towers.

What are Dragon Krystals in Mortal Kombat 1?

Dragon Krystals are Mortal Kombat 1’s premium currency. They can be used within the in-game to unlock premium skins, gear, and other goodies that every good fighter needs when flexing on their opponents.

As it stands, Gear pieces cost 300 Dragon Krystals, while skin bundles will set you back anywhere between 600-800 Dragon Krystals. You can also purchase Easy Fatility Tokens in quantities of five, 40, and 100, coming in at 100/800/2,000 Dragon Krystals respectively.
