How to Get Wuthering Waves Energy Cores

So far, the most reliable way to get Energy Cores in Wuthering Waves is by completing main quests.

The first two main missions, which end with you leaving the City Hall in Jinzhou, net you a total of nine Medium Energy Cores and three Basic Energy Cores. Presuming this reward cadence continues as you get through main quests, you’ll never need to grind to find more Energy Cores.

Aside from that, the game lists two other ways of getting more. The first is Simulation Training, located in Jinzhou’s city center. This is a gauntlet mode where you battle through simulated dungeons, defeating waves of enemies. The more levels you clear, the more extra Energy Cores you’ll get.

The only other way to get more Energy Cores is to explore the Huanglong region. The more you scavenge hidden areas, open chests, and loot fallen enemies, the better your chances of increasing your stockpile.
