Elden Ring: All 29 Crystal Tear Locations

Elden Ring takes the elements of previously FromSoftware games and takes them to a whole new level. You’d see many returning ranged weapons, sorcery spells, pyro spells, and much more. The list does not stop there, as there are tons of other similarities as well. However, we think that Flask of Wondrous Physick in Elden Ring is a very unique item that can give tarnished one a combination of status effects that previous FromSoftware never featured. Players can buff attacks, get HP over time, faster stamina regeneration, and tons of other combinations using various Crystal Tears. That is why we have curated Elden Ring Crystal Tear locations guide and entailed where to get each one of them.

Finding all of the crystal tears for Flask of Wondrous Physick will allow you to combine them and have unique effects. You can pretty much acquire the equipment and a few combinations in the early hours of the game. However, acquiring just the basic crystal tears will not be enough for the mid and late game in Elden Ring.

You’d need to acquire most of the crystal tears we mentioned here and combine them in the Flask of Wondrous Physick to have game-changing effects. You do this, and you’d notice drastic changes in combat and how you approach enemies or emerge out from unwanted situations. Here is a list of all crystal tears in Elden Ring that you should collect by visiting the places we’ve mentioned. 

Cerulean Crystal Tear 

Cerulean Crystal Tear favors the FP users or, in other words, the tarnished ones that rely a lot on consuming FP bar.

There are two Cerulean Crystal Tear that you can find in the game, and both of them can be located near specific Erdtree avatars. The first one can be acquired after defeating the Erdtree Avatar located in Liurnia of the Lakes. Here is an image for your reference.
