AFK Journey Primal Lord Crystal Beetle – Best Formations

AFK Journey Primal Lord Crystal Beetle is the latest Primal Lord to enter the field, so let's take a look at some of the best team formations to take them down.


Primal Lord Crystal Beetle is the latest Primal Lord to be added to AFK Journey. Like before, players can challenge the boss 3 times a day as the server takes them down. While the goal is to take down the Lord for the server, you will get Daily rewards of Essence, Gold, and XP based on the damage you deal.

As always, you'll also be ranked for the best damage total in a given day against the rest of your server. The top 20 players at the end will get the special Beetle Slayer title, while the top 200 will get a unique border and “a lot” of Twilight Essence. If you manage to the make the top 50, you'll be immortalised on your server at the spot where the Lord fell.

Don't worry if you're F2P, we'll have a team for you as well.

As always, these lists are being updated as the meta shifts, this is especially true for those playing on F2P as time will allow those players to use slightly better Characters as they unlock them and rank them up. With all that said, let's get into the team comps, look at the boss abilities and get ourselves some kill %.

  2. True damage is the most potent here, despite the boss taking increased Magic Damage
