As a new player, the first gold bar is only 10 nuggets, and you get one nugget per daily mission. Get the very first bar at least.
After that the wiki's priorities are on point. Grab the celestial weapon you want (Xuanwu mace, Zhuque katana etc) for your main (and maybe secondary) element and uncap it to 150.
Buy all the pots and berries.
Possibly get 1x each seal to join Qilin/Huanglong (I did this on my first ROTB and regretted rushing it, the pendants would have been better spent on more celestial weapons).
I can also just keep knocking out trophies/free quests/story to try to get more crystals to burn during legfest, if that's a better use of my time.
Definitely get the 800 crystal from the 150 badge rewards. I'd advocate stopping legfest spending as soon as you have two SSR in one ele.
