Spiked Crests are the heads of Krytan drakes, left behind as trophies. It is believed that these crests contribute to the drake's control of Air Magic.



Sanctum Cay
Farming Spiked Crests in Sanctum Cay

Farm the Lightning Drakes on the beach in the early area of this mission. The Lightning Drakes spawn at the player marker on the screenshot. You will first have to pass by between 2-3 groups of 2-3 Inferno Imps before reaching the location. There are between 2-3 groups of 2-3 drakes which can easily be killed solo. Since they do not inflict a great deal of damage, a single self-heal should be sufficient. Typically, you will find 0-1 crest per run.
