As your plot a course across the galaxy, it’s easy to lose track of the multitude of planets, space stations, and settlements you’ll discover. One specific settlement in the latter half of your adventure will be totally inaccessible until you’ve either upgraded your Astrodynamics skill or your grav drive as it’s so far, far away. So, if you’re trying to figure out where the Crucible is in Starfield, here’s some directions to get you there.

How to Find the Crucible in Starfield

Specifically, the Crucible is in the Charybdis system, which is situated to the east of the Kryx system and southeast of Ixyll.

It’s a Level 65 system and is very far away, so don’t worry too much if you can’t get there yet. We had to upgrade our grav drive and upgrade our Astrodynamics skill to rank 4 to get there.

Sarah Morgan is also a really good companion to have with you when trying to get to the Charybdis system as she comes replete with a Level 4 Astrodynamics skill buff. If you’re unable to assign Sarah Morgan to your ship for any reason, you can always head to Neon‘s Astral Lounge and hire a specialised Astrodynamics crew member there. This will help to increase your grav drive jump significantly.

If you do, we highly recommend persuading them to come with you for a cheaper fee. Essentially, if you manage to persuade them, you’ll only need to pay 3,000 Credits to hire them as opposed to 6,000. That’s a pretty big saving, right?
