Crystal Capsules is a Treasure Hunter promotion that uses keys to unlock shadow gem overrides, protean selections and a pack of 10 Treasure Hunter keys.

Keys can be used to unlock gems, rather than standard chests. The gems remaining to find are shown on the right side of the interface, so players can see what rarity of items they can possibly obtain. After unlocking 4 gems, players can choose to spend 100 Hearts of Ice to reset and obtain a fresh set of gems of varying rarities that may be unlocked, as long as there isn't a unique prize gem of ultra rare rarity available to unlock - it must be unlocked first. All players have a high chance in receiving 10 Treasure Hunter keys as their first ultra rare prize.
