 Eliminates all FP consumption in mixed physick

Cerulean Hidden Tear is a Crystal Tear in Elden Ring. Crystal Tears can be mixed in the Flask of Wondrous Physick to determine its effect.

 

A crystal tear formed slowly over the ages where the Erdtree's bounty falls to the ground.

Can be mixed in the Flask of Wondrous Physick.
The resulting concoction removes all FP consumption.

However, this effect is only brief and will quickly expire.

Cerulean Hidden Tear Notes & Tips

  • FP is not consumed by any actions that normally consume FP for 15 seconds.
  • You can perform actions that would normally consume more FP than your max (e.g. summoning expensive Spirit Ashes that you cannot afford normally).
  • Weapon skills and spells that only consume FP, such as Comet Azur, Prelate's Charge, Spinning Wheel and Unendurable Frenzy, can be used continuously.
  • You can find Crystal Tears at the bases of Minor Erdtrees and elsewhere throughout the Lands Between.
  • At sites of grace, you can mix two Crystal Tears in the Flask of Wondrous Physick. (This will allow you to create elixirs with various custom effects.)

      another glitch. if your FP is completely depleted, you can't use weapon arts using this tear. spells still work, though. tested it with moonveil, glinstone kris, and the scepter of all-knowing. the skill name on the left side of the screen stops being grayed out, but the skills don't actually work.

      • This is good for low mind builds that want to use high fp summons like tiche and finlay without leveling up mind or wasting a estus flask on mimic tear.

          This is dumb, why not just make this give you an X amount of free FP to spend relative to your current FP. With no time limit, this would make it more useful for cheap spells and less useful the more expensive the spell. Now this tear is just pigfeed for boss cheesers

            No idea why people in the comments say like the change was intentional. Also not sure why the wiki page change the text were it said the 7 seconds part was unintentional change. The patch notes for 1.04 clearly stated it was unintentional change that was going to be reverter in an upcoming update. And now their update said 1.04 it was reverted.

            Went to test it and it does in fact lasts 15 seconds again.

              As of patch 1.07 just released today, Cerulean Hidden Tear has now been fixed and is back to its 15 sec duration. As a pure sorcery build I'm happy. XD

                A nice reword would be for the timer to start when your fp is first used as opposed to when the flask is drunk. Then 7-10 seconds might be a good balance

                  I got the tear for my sorcerer build JUST AS the patch nerfed it by accident lol.
                  That said I've never felt super pressed on FP by around 35 Mind and 6 blue flasks, but maybe that's just because I never used it prior to the patch and I don't really like using Azur's comet because it's too slow and requires more precise openings.

                    7 seconds in PvP is fine, but I hope they put it back up to 15 for PvE. One guy with comet azur shouldn't ruin it for everyone else.

                      I think they should keep the duration at 10 seconds. That seems like a good middle ground between the new duration and the old one

                        on my fourth playthrough I decided to be a mage and see how it feels to nuke a boss with this... I drink the flask, animation of drinking takes about 1 second, I start channeling meteorites or any long channeling spell, after one second mana already starts being consumed. Basically this is useless now and can be removed from the game after the patch unless they actually revert it

                          does anything else in the game give the dark blue effect around the player? I like this effect a lot more than the turquoise of the magic boosting and intelligence boosting tears...

                              Accidental nerf absolutely ruins this item. Cant even get more than one spell in before it ends, and thats if you have everything else ready. If you have to swap weapons, or use a spell with a long charge time you get nothing. Glad its only temporary.

                                Should it be nerfed? A bit, perhaps. A more than 50% reduction? That was definitely way too much of a nerf. Literally get about 2 seconds of Comet cast time with that kind of nerf, leaves it essentially useless. Make it more like a 10 or 11 second duration, that way the duration isn't wasted on the cast animation and can actually do some work.

                                  Duration reduction to around 7 seconds in patch 1.04 was unintentional and should be reverted.

                                    Unironically like it at 7-8 seconds with the new patch. It feels more fair. You can use the window to buff up big or fire off 1-2 fat spells. Certainly beats 15 seconds of Stars of Ruin spamming.

                                        Urg, it has been reduced to 6-7 seconds after the new patch....I was wondering why my duration was cut short significantly while fighting radagon....

                                          Bamco has confirmed the nerf to duration for this tear was unintended, here's hoping they push the hotfix sooner rather than later.

                                            Was unintentionally nerfed in 1.04 (duration was halved) and will be fixed with a minor patch in the near future according to the official Elden Ring Twitter.

                                              "unintentionally" nerfed, meaning they actually wanted to nerf it but then backed down but forgot to increase it back to 15 secs

                                                      Was mentioned by the official Twitter account for Elden Ring that the halved duration was an unintentional change and will be changed back to 15 seconds in the next patch. I'd link to the post but that seems to be against this site's rules? as my comment didn't pass moderation.

                                                        The duration was halved (7.5 ish now) in the latest patch even though it's not in the patch notes. Perhaps unintentional like Radahn nerf?

                                                          Broken but broken can be fun, and cheese Azur Comet in PvP is useless so if people want to obliterate bosses with a nuke let them have fun. It's balanced enough to not affect PvP.

                                                            I know this is obviously an incredibly powerful tear that everyone is using. But in case anyone running low mind didn't know, this also allows you summon ANY spirit ashes regardless of FP cost. Meaning at 60 max FP you can still summon the most powerful and broken spirits like Tiche, Lhutel the Headless, Omenkiller Rollo, and the Banished Knights, which all cost 100+ FP to cast normally. I know there a lot of powerful crystal tears for melee builds, but trust me, none of them are equivalent to having Tiche on your side, I used this exclusively for the Malenia because she can burn in hell. Though I am thinking of using this for my new bleed build to get Omenkiller Rollo without a bunch of points into mind.

I like to pair it with the opaline bubbletear that negates physical damage. Allows you to really spam your FP away recklessly and if you get hit doing it, the opaline bubble will prevent any consequence coming from it.

                                                                      • Anonymous

The cerulean crystal tear is here and another one I can't remember. The cerulean hidden tear is possibly in the giants mountaintop catacombs

                                                                            • Anonymous

Aside from that though, this Crystal Tear is absolutely bonkers.

Cast combo with Stone Digger Staff to enhance the Sorcery of bot TM and CA as they are both StoneDigger Sorceries which will take it to it's maximum potential.
