The final part of the Genshin Impact “Summertime Odyssey” quest line has you going back to the mysterious Fatui machine and finding Crystalline Cores. Our Crystalline Core guide details how to find the three cores and release them from the contraptions in the “Like Rhyme and Song, the Summer Reverie” quest.
