Players must spend Waveplates in Wuthering Waves to upgrade their characters and weapons. There is a limited capacity of 240 Waveplates before the server reset and it takes 24 hours to refresh completely when depleted so that you can farm the much-needed in-game resource.

Instead of waiting, you can use Crystal Solvent to restore Waveplates and continue farming for more materials. It is a rare in-game resource that will help you quickly advance to higher Union Levels.

This article explains everything about obtaining Crystal Solvents, its usage, and more.

You can either use the inventory or open the in-game map and click on Waveplates to consume Crystal Solvents. Each solvent will provide you with 60 additional Wavesplates.

If you're wondering about the right time to use the Crystals, that would depend on your gameplay. If you want to progress to higher Union Levels and build your characters quickly, use them early. However, if you wish to use them optimally, it's better to wait until you reach a higher Union Level and then spend the Crystals for efficient farming.
