The Crystal Tears are a new item that can help the player in a plethora of ways, and many different varieties of them offer many different boosts to your character. Following our helpful guide, you’ll be able to find out not only how to use the Crystal Tears item, but what they can do for you.

Crystal Tears – How to Obtain and Use Them


Crystal Tears are items that can be used and mixed to enhance the effects that are brought on by the Flask Of Wondrous Physick. You’ll get your hands on them as you explore the world, combating foes and looting them once defeated, finding them in specific locations, receiving them from NPC’s, or purchasing them from Merchants.

You can mix Crystal Tears into the Flask of Wonderous Physick at Sites of Grace, and they allow you to give yourself custom stats to help you along your journey. Currently, there are 16 different types of Crystal Tears that you can obtain in the world.

  • Ruptured Crystal Tear – Causes Concoction to Explode 
  • Greenspill Crystal Tear – Temporarily boosts stamina 
  • Cerulean Crystal Tear – Restores half of your total FP
  • Crimson Crystal Tear – Restores half of your total HP
  • Crimsonburst Cyrstal Tear – Steadily restores HP for some time
  • Faith-Knot Crystal Tear – Temporarily boosts Faith
  • Opaline Bubbletear – Significantly negates damage
  • Strength-Knot Crystal Tear – Temporarily boosts Strength
  • Spiked Cracked Tear – Enhances Charged Attacks for some time
  • Dexterity-Knot Cyrstal Tear – Temporarily boosts dexterity
  • Winged Cyrstal Tear – Temporarily reduces equipment load
  • Magic-Shourding Cracked Tear – Temporarily boosts Magic Attacks
  • Lightning-Shourding Cracked Tear – Temporarily boosts Lightning Attacks
  • Holy-Shrouding Cracked Tear – Temporarily boosts Holy Attacks
  • Twiggy Cracked Tear – Briefly stops Rune Loss on Death
  • Leaden Hardtear – Temporarily boosts Poise 

As you can see, there are many different options to not only create, but to explore and find these different tears to make sure that you are on your best level while exploring the world of Elden Ring. Much like the Great Runes and Ashes of War you can find, these will offer great buffs to your character, while allowing you to customize them to your current playstyle!

Elden Ring is out now for the PlayStation 4 and 5, Xbox One and Series X/S, and PC.
