Crystal Braiding is a rare and valuable ingredient found on some of the biggest machine enemies in the game. As such it’s very difficult to obtain early on but there is one area you can learn where to find the Crystal Braiding without too much of a challenge. You will need to progress through the main story until you’re able to reach the West part of the map. Once you’re able to do so head to the Stormbird Site marked on the image above.

Stormbirds are huge bird-like machines that have a lot of HP. There may be an easier way to take them down but I found using a Ropecaster to tie them to the ground as the best trick. You will need a lot of ammo as it can take 10+ shots to tie them down. Once tied down destroy the Blaze Canisters on its back with Fire Arrows, that can take 20% of the HP right away. From there continue to tie them down and attack the weaker elements. The Crystal Braiding is a rare drop but it has dropped for me every time so far.
