Some dungeons are important to explore. One such dungeon is the Sellia Crystal Tunnel. If you want to gather items to put together the best build in the game then this tunnel is a must-visit.

Sellia Crystal Tunnel Location In Elden Ring
Sellia Crystal Tunnel is a minor dungeon, that is located in the region of Caelid on the northern side of the inner Aeonia Site of Lost Grace. While the Sellia Crystal Dungeon is fairly easy to complete and you will find a lot of Smithing stones here, finding this dungeon can be quite difficult. Nonetheless exploring this cave is a must because you wl find many important items like Faithful’s Canvas Talisman in this cave. There are two ways to get to the Dungeon. One is by teleporting through a chest in Limgrave and the second is through Sellia, the town of Sorcery. Let’s discuss the former first.

Now that you have reached the location of Sellia Crystal Tunnel in Elden Ring, the next step is to explore it. Once you are in the cave, the first thing you will do is a Sight of Lost Grace. Now be careful here as you will be given a choice to choose between two paths.
One of them leads to nowhere hence a waste of time. Make sure you go right and climb up the ladder. This will lead you to an open chamber.
You’ll be greeted with several Crystal Miners in the large cavern. This room comes with many items to grab here too like the Cracked Crystal Deposits and the Smithing Stones. Make sure you take a lot of them. Make your way down to the wooden shack and to the left side you will find a corpse holding a Golden Rune.
Continue up and you’ll see another wooden shack where you would have ended if you transported to this cave via the Dragon Burnt Ruins.
Keep moving upward and you’ll see another Crystal Miner and a Lesser Kindred of Rot on a wooden beam on the left side. On the edge, of this wooden platform, you’ll find a corpse holding a Rune Arc.
Dropdown this wooden platform onto the one below and take out the Crystal Miner on it. Now jump on the top of the first wooden shack to get Glinstone Scrap from a corpse.
Move back at the top of the slope and grab the Smithing Stones and Cracked Crystal’s dropped by the Crystal Miner you just fought. Your path ahead will be blocked by debris. To move forward you will have to do a running jump onto the first wooden shack, then move forward to get to the location of the Sellia Tunnel in Elden Ring.
Jump on the wooden platform ahead to reach a corpse holding the Cuckoo Glinstone. Keep moving forward and find the Crystal Miner Ahead. You will enter a small cave at the top with a ladder on the right.
Head up the ladder and you will see another corpse that you can loot for a Somber Smithing Stone. Now move ahead into the next cave and you will be on the roof of the initial cave. Cross the wooden planks and head into the small wooden shack
Defeat the Crystal Miner and a Lesser Kindred of Rot in the wooden shack and find the Rock Blaster Spell in a small chest inside. In the northeastern corner of the cave, you can find two Smithing Stones deposits.
On the left side of the shack, you will see a ladder at the end of the path. You will have to face two Crystal Miners here. There is a corpse sitting on the ledge. You can loot him to get the Golden Rune. Kick this ladder in the front of the corpse to create a shortcut. There is a Somber Smithing Stone as well in the northwest corner of the cave.
Continue through the tunnel and make your way into another cave. There is another corpse on the ground but be careful as there is a Lesser Kindred of Rot waiting to ambush you. After defeating him, grab the Dragonwound Grease.
The alcove where the Lesser Kindred of Rot came out to attack you is a Somber Smithing Stone deposit so don’t forget to check that out as well. You will see another corpse where Lesser Kindred of Rot is praying. This corpse holds Faithful’s Canvas Talisman. In the left of the cave is also a Smithing Stone deposit.
Heading down the tunnel moving to the west, you will come across wooden double doors. Behind these doors lies the Fallingstar Beast, the boss of the Sellia Crystal Tunnel.
Defeating Fallingstar Beast Boss
The Fallingstar beast is a bull-type animal with a scorpion tail and mandibles. This beast is covered in crystals that act as its armor. The arena is very small in size, so dodging its attacks can be quite difficult.
It will open up its mandibles to attack you and it can hit you with its tail too. Make sure to avoid its charge attack in which the Fallingstar Beast is straight in a line across the arena three times in a row, changing its direction with each attack. The key strategy here is to carefully time your rolls. Use your best melee weapons and attacks against this boss.
Avoid its gravitational moves as well in which this beast creates a sort of radius around itself that makes everything levitate including you. It can manipulate gravity to throw rock shards in your direction. The best way to dodge these attacks is to look for the sparks in the ground that signal their gravitational attack. There will also be purple lightning between its mandibles before it attacks.
On defeating the Fallingstar Beast you will get one Somber Smithing Stone, five Smithing Stones, ten Gravity Stone Chunks, and a Somberstone Miner’s Bell Bearing. To use this Somberstone Miner’s Bell Bearing bring it to the Twin Maiden Husks in the Roundtable Hold.
