What are Crystal Tears used for in Elden Ring and how to use them, explained

Mix them to enhance effects!

In Elden Ring, players will come across a multitude of consumable items. It's important to understand how these specific items and boosts function. The new Flask Of Wondrous Physick mechanic allows players to mix various Crystal Tears to boost specific effects for the Tarnished. 

Players can acquire Crystal Tears by visiting different Sites Of Grace, defeating enemies, purchasing from merchants, and simply exploring the map. Crystal Tears are essentially items that enhance certain effects, but you will have to acquire the Flask Of Wondrous Physick first. Venture eastwards from Agheel Lake North Site of Grace to visit the Third Church Of Marika. For reference, players can follow the map below. Players will find the Flask Of Wondrous Physick along with a Sacred Tear at the Third Church Of Marika.

After acquiring the Flask Of Wondrous Physick, players will see a new tab Wonderous Physick Mix. Add the Crystal Tears acquired throughout the journey in the Wonderous Physick Mix, then add it to your equipment. The game currently has 22 unique Crystal Tears that players can find all across the map to add specific effects to their character. The following list features all of the Crystal Tears that players will come across in Elden Ring:

Completed three academic degrees with five stars, like they were side quests in the final Boss mission. I could write a book on the FPS genre featuring CS:GO, Fortnite, Warzone, Apex, VALORANT, COD and PUBG - the greatest chapter would feature the futility and impact of the S&D format.
