If you are just starting with Blue Archive, or are an avid player, you will know the importance of Pyroxenes in the game. They are used for a number of occassions and are an integral part of Blue Archive. The question arises here that how much Pyroxenes can a F2P Player earn without spending anything. Well, I will try to answer that in this guide.
Hopefully by the end, you will have a better idea and get some decent farming tips for it as well. If you have any unique methods to farm pyroxenes that are not listed here, do mention that. Let’s take a look at the full post for all the details. If you want to know which are the best students or characters for PvP in Blue Archive, do check out my guide here.

This may come off as a surprise, but a lot of players ovelook the “Tasks” tab. I do not know the reason, but if you are not doing it, do it! You will have a lot of options to farm pyroxenes here. The options of tasks you can do here are:
If you just click on “All” you can view all the pending and completed tasks. If I talk specifically, the “challenge tasks” tab can give you decent number of pyroxene. For example, one of the challenge tasks says that “Clear Stage 2 Mission 2 within 3 turns”. These simple tasks give you 30 x Pyroxenes.
You can indivisually claim the rewards, or complete all the tasks and select “claim all”. I find the latter more efficient to use since I do not want to keep track of each task reward. The order in which you should the tasks are flexible, but I would suggest Daily > Weekly > Challenges > Achievements. That is because daily tasks will get expired first and then the weekly ones.
I also suggest you do these on “Hard” Mode. You will see 50 x Pyroxenes lying around within these stages. These come in the form of “Supply Resources”. I do not think you will get this much amount in other modes. Correct me if I am mistaking here, by commenting down.
Pyroxene Cost for Refeshing Stamina
Ideally, refresh your stamina 6 times per day. This is not my personal opinion, but this is suggested by Veteral JP Server players. You might be wondering why you need to do that. To explain this, I will have to take you through some calculations:
- Refeshing first 3 times costs 30 Pyroxenes.
- After you do 3 Times, the next refresh will increase to a cost of 60 Pyroxenes.
- The 7th round will increase this to 90 Pyroxenes which is not ideal
If you are to refresh the entire stamina everyday, the total Pyroxenes for 1 day would be: 30 x 3 = 90 + 60 x 3 = 180. Adding these two, you will need to spend 270 pyroxenes per day just to refresh stamina. If you go for weekly expense, this will become 270 x 7 = 1890 pyroxenes. This is a LOT of currency to spend just to refresh stamina.
A lot of players think this is not worth it, but one thing to note is, the amount of gems we get. We mainly get them from Dailies, Weeklies, and PvP content. “total assault” is yet to unlock, which can give you more gems. Ranking in raids is also very important. If you reach top 10,000 rank, you will get 1,200 Pyroxenes, which is a lot!
Daily F2P Pyroxenes
If you only decide to do Daily Missions and tasks, you can easily get 20 Pyroxenes ever single day just by completing everything on the list. This may seem small, but it is important in recovering the weekly 1890 gems you are giving away to refresh stamina. If you count it for 1 week, this becomes 140 gems. So, I would recomment that you do all the Daily Tasks and do not skip any of them.
Weekly F2P Pyroxenes
You can obtain a total of 120 pyroxenes or gems by completing all the weekly tasks given. You should first complete the daily ones then move to the weekly tasks. That is because these get expired after the daily ones. So do that in the correct order to avoid missing any of them. Now, if you sum them up, the total Pyroxenes by doing Daily and Weekly tasks for 1 week is 140 + 120 = 260 gems!
Gems (Pyroxenes) you can farm in PvP [JP Servers]
There are a lot of ways to get gems from PvP section of the game. The list includes Battles, Time, Daily ones, Best Season Records, and Best Record Overall. If I do not count anything except the “From Day” part, you will still get 10/day or 70 gems per week!Top 1 can get 45 gems per day and the top 100 gets 30 gems per day, but I am not even considering that. Now lets take a look at raid rewards!
Raids and Rewards
Each boss gives you 1200 gems for being the top 10,000, and 1000 gems if you are 10,000+. There will be 2 bosses each month. If you only attack the boss and claim the point rewards, you earn around 500 gems from that alone. Hence each boss totals to about 1500 – 1700. Doing this twice means you earn close to 3000 – 3400 gems per month.
You also get some amount of Pyroxenes after every maintenance in JP Servers. We will have to wait and see if the same happens for Global Versions of the servers as well. If that happens, you will get around 960 gems from maintenance rewards only.
Special Events ( X2 and X3 events)
In JP Servers, they have special events that give you times 2, and times 3 rewards for everything you obtain in the game. This is also applicable to Pyroxenes or gems. So you can imagine doing the same activities can grant you double or triple the Gems in such special events. 1
We need to observe what happens in global servers, but in JP Servers, this already happens and grants the players a lot of goodies. Usually these events last from 5 days all the way up to 2 weeks. Again, I would not get my hopes up until they do the same for Global Ver. as well.
Get Saya’s Eleph from PvP Shop
Go to the Shop tab, and purchase Energy drink along with Lesser Energy Drink every single day if it is possible. Along with this make sure to purchase “Saya’s Eleph” from the store. You can also save up for other characters to get added to the PvP shop. For now, focus on her as much as possible. That is because she is great in raids, where you will get a lot of Gems/Pyroxenes.
If you did not reroll for her or did not get her, that is all well and good because you can purchase her from the PvP Shop. She has a decent crit damage (17% at level 10) which you can use in raids and other modes in general.
In crafting do not randomly upgrade/acquire the items as you go on. Instead try to follow this order in order to optimize your gems;
- Furnitures should be prioritized first
- Gift comes in the list next
- High-Grade Substances will be the next priority here.
If you try to do the crafting in that order, this will maximize your optimization and how you progress in the game. You can always experiment around until you find what works best for you. In my personal opinion those are the priorities in crafting.
Joining Active Club
You obtain 10 energy from the mailbox as daily check-in reward if you join a club. The reason to join a club is not because of this energy reward even though it is important. The main objective to join an active club is the support you get from them during raids.
When you are doing a raid, you have the option to select One Support Unit from your club. If your club has a lot of great supports, it can make your raid that much easier. This is very important and I highly recommend that you do not skip this point, and join an active club asap.
The ultimate goal is to take the help from the club members to reach the top 10,000 rank in raids. As I mentioned earlier, this will help you to get the covered 1200 pyroxenes or gems. The raid will be soon introduced to the game so be on the lookou for that. If you are reading this at a later time, then maybe the raid is already available and you are grinding the gacha currencies!
If you follow these simple tips, I hope you can earn enough Pyroxene to sustain you for each month. You obviously need to grind somewhat for that, but it will be worth the time. Just wait for now and see how the game unfolds for the global servers, then proceed like i suggested. You will be Farming pyroxenes in Blue Archive in no time!
