Where to find Crystal Dart in Elden Ring

 

Crystal Dart use in Elden Ring

Crystal Dart can be used to inflict magic damage upon throwing on enemies at the cost of FP. In addition, Crystal Dart is able to frenzy golem construct enemies (such as Imps and Burial Watchdogs) upon enough hits, causing them to attack all enemies (including the player) around them.

 

Elden Ring Crystal Dart Crafting Guide

To craft Crystal Dart you need the Nomadic Warrior's Cookbook [11] as well as the following Crafting Materials:

 

Elden Ring Crystal Dart Notes & Tips

  • You can hold up to 40 Crystal Darts.
  • You can store up to 600 Crystal Darts.
  • Sell Value: item value icon elden ring wiki guide 18px 20 Runes
  • Usage of FP is so low that it's very unlikely it will be a concern.
  • Abuse of the frenzy mechanic on boss enemies, especially multiple bosses at once (e.g. the Erdtree Burial Watchdogs at the Minor Erdtree Catacombs) can be very useful to both deal massive damage to enemies while distracting both the targeted boss and enemies around it.
  • This appears to NOT work on Crystalians, Iron Virgins, or Marionette/Avionette Soldiers.
  • It works on Golems, but they may prove to be more of a hindrance than an ally.

      Trivializes the Catacomb Watchdogs. Especially great for the catacomb where you have to fight 2 of them. Short-circuit one of them and just watch them kill each other.

        It's a great weapon. I beat Radagon with this after whittling him down to a singe pixel of health with a Broadsword.

        Cheese/10, would throw again.

          These worked a treat for me earlier in the minor erdtree catacomb, I quite enjoyed seeing one of those pr**ks kill the other.

          I don't know its obvious to everyone else but it wasn't to me at the time, if you haven't done impalers catacomb but are going to do it at some point, don't throw the crystal darts at the imps in the boss room hit the burial watchdog with them instead. The boss has a much bigger health pool than the imps so using the darts on that is much better value for money, the watchdog will make light work of the imps for you.

            I've just seen for myself how well they work on the minor erdtree catacombs burial watchdogs. I target-locked and started throwing darts at one as soon as I crossed the fog gate then sat back and watched as one killed the other.

              I don’t understand the frenzy mechanic. I’ve never actually gotten it to work by throwing a crystal dart at an enemy.

              • Anonymous

                Works on Godskin Duo for some reason. Completely cheeses that fight. Guess they're a construct of some sort?

                  Actually It's working for Golem construct enemy.
                  I tested and confirmed for 3 kinds for now.

                  Any Imp - this made catacomb Imp less annoying.
                  Burial Watchdog
                  Bow / Halberd golem - need 4-5 constantly hit
                  Not sure if need to hit at cracked spot or any spot will do.
                  But it work for those big golem.
                  This also does a lot damage to the cracked chest

                  Though, Golem is slow and their move set design to hit player on ground.
                  2Golem fighting each other is the somehow a boring show. haha

                  Not work with Crystalians. they are crystal living forms. not golem construct.
                  Not work with Abductor and Marionette. They are magic powered machine.

                    Damn, the hidden passive of frenzy would've been great to know about earlier. I'm assuming then the only way to find out is either trial and error or a merchant sells a secret note explaining this hidden property of the crystal darts.

                    • Anonymous

                      The Imp helms specify that they're actually Impish Golems, which is a subtle but interesting way of letting you know that this works on them as well.

                        Really bummed that they don't work on the big gargoyles. I don't really have trouble with the other golem enemies.

                          I had no idea these were so good. I've been sleeping on these for a long time because I thought the cracked crystals could be used for something else more useful and wanted to save them since I only knew of a cave in Caelid that was too high a level for me to farm safely early game. Turns out all the throwing knife type items are pretty good with their corresponding builds. They have excellent scaling for their respective build stats and can do respectable damage even late game. These crystal darts are great for spell blades and even sorcerers who want to conserve FP before a major boss fight. Granted, there isn't good faith or arcane scaling throwing knives, so perhaps there was an oversight there.

                          • Inconsistent when I'm a summon, not the host. I've only seen it work once, in Impaler's Catacombs on the Erdtree Burial Watchdog, and it took 8 darts. Many other times, 12+ darts didn't work.

                              People who are confused about the frenzy mechanic:
                              "Long ago, it is said that a golem crafter employed a similar crystal tool."
                              This is a clear hint on what it works on: golem constructs. So basically only the little imps and catdaddies are affected.

                                I've spent almost 130 hours using these and NEVER knew they could inflict frenzy!
                                That aside, these have been my favorite weapons with a Dex-Int build, and I can't begin to count the number of times I've used them to finish off a tough enemy or boss with a tiny bit of health left and moving in for that last attack was otherwise risky. Also an excellent use of spare FP to inflict some extra damage, or draw enemies one at a time out of a mob when sneaking around.

                                  Most people sleeping on this because nowhere does this item even say it inflicts frenzy. I thought it was just damage.

                                    These things are insanely good people are sleeping on these. They do almost as much as Glinstone Pebble which costs 7 FP. These cost 1 FP and can store 40 in your inventory at once. and you can have 999 Cracked Crystals in your inventory to craft them again whenever you run out. Insanely good and efficient for spell blade builds where you want to focus on a weapon art usage rather than off handing a staff. The best farm for these that I've found is the Raya Lucaria Crystal Tunnel. Rest at the grace run in kill the one Glinstone miner that is walking down the stairs then take a left and loot the 4 Cracked Crystal nodes then run back to the grace 10 feet away rinse repeat.

                                      These are almost certainly glitched. The frenzy effect, even on bosses with so few darts needed, is way too powerful. If you are stuck on a dual boss fight use these and sit back. Don't summon during the boss until one boss remains. Clean up the final boss.

                                        These might be a bit overtuned atm. For 1 FP and at the cost of a very easy-to-farm material (just scoop up all the cracked crystal in the Sellia Crystal Tunnel and reset), you get some serious, spammable damage. I thought it was just because I was using it as a throwing knife alternative on my Sorcerer for RP but no, these things are pretty nuts.

                                          I can report that crystal darts can cause some weird confusion effect on some enemies. Appears as bubbles around the enemy's head, interrupts their action and makes them vulnerable to other enemies attacks.

                                            These are very OP. Literally better than many of the projectile spells especially for PVP. Not sure why nobody has noticed yet.
