Are you looking for the best crystal tears in Elden Ring?
Like the Estus Flasks in Dark Souls, you start Elden Ring with healing flasks that can be refilled at any Site of Grace. However, this isn’t the only type of healing available. The Flask of Wondrous Physick is a customizable alternative.
To get the Flask of Wondrous Physick, you need to reach the Third Church of Marika in Limgrave East.
You’ll find it in front of a statue, along with a crystal tear that you can mixt to change the flask’s effects. These tears are not to be confused with golden seeds that upgrade the number of charges you can have for your Crimson Flask and Cerulean Flask.
There are also a handful of other crystal tears that you can find in The Lands Between, and their effects trigger every time you take a sip, and you can swap them at any Site of Grace.
Today, we’ll show you the best Crystal Tears you can get in Elden Ring.
Let’s get started!
The Opaline Bubbletear offers significant damage negation to its user. It basically forms a bubble shield that enables you to withstand a single minor hit or even attacks that can typically one-shot players.
While this Crystal Tear is best used at the start of a boss fight, you have to remember that its effect also expires after a duration. You should also note that this bubble won’t save you from the enemy’s combo or special moves that grab you and deal considerable damage.
The Opaline Bubbletear can be found early on at the Minor Erdtree in the Weeping Peninsula south of Limgrave. When you reach the area, keep going until you see a fork road where you can turn back northwest up the high ground.
This should lead you to the South of the Lookout Tower Site of Grace.
From there, continue heading west across a bridge, and you’ll eventually reach the Minor Erdtree. Defeat the avatar in this area, and it should drop the Opaline Bubbletear.
Crimsonburst Crystal Tear
This Crystal Tear in Elden Ring gradually regenerates your HP for three minutes. Its lengthy duration makes it a great tool to have during boss fights. While the regeneration it provides is slow, every regeneration you can get in Elden Ring helps.
This can also save your healing flask if you just need to heal a small portion of your HP.
Luckily, the Crimsonburst Crystal Tear can be obtained by defeating the Erdtree Avatar at Weeping Peninsula’s Minor Erdtree. This means that you can also get the Opaline Bubbletear simultaneously.
Greenburst Crystal Tear
The Greenburst Crystal Tear in Elden Ring temporarily boosts your stamina recovery speed. Since stamina is a crucial stat in the game, this is a great buff to have for your character. While it offers the same effects as the Green Turtle Talisman, it’s nice to have another option if you haven’t found the Green Turtle Talisman.
To get this Crystal Tear, you need to go to the Minor Erdtree in Caelid. However, you won’t have to explore deep into the region to find it.
The Greenburst Crystal Tear sits in the Smouldering Church, which is just a short ride from East Limgrave.
Once in the location, you’ll see the Minor Erdtree. However, you should approach it from the left-hand side so that you’re heading down to the tree’s base. You’ll also encounter a few enemies along the way, but you can ride past them using Torrent.
Twiggy Cracked Tear
This Crystal Tear in Elden Ring prevents players from losing their runes upon death. It works similar to equipping a Sacrificial Twig in your talisman slot, but those are lost after a single-use. For the Twiggy Cracked Tear, you can use it as many times as you want as long as it’s mixed with the flask of wondrous physick.
However, its effect only lasts for three minutes once you’ve used the flask. This means that if you die after the duration, you’ll lose your runes.
From Leyndell’s Outer Wall Battleground Site of Grace, go east to the Minor Erdtree. Luckily, you don’t have to fight the avatar in this area. However, you’ll still need to face a small mob of enemies and their ringleaders.
Once they are taken care of, the Twiggy Cracked Tear should be at the base of the Minor Erdtree.
