Staff fashioned from pure crystal; a deed impossible for a human. Enhances Crystalian sorceris.
The Crystalian's faint cognition is know as the "wisdom of stone." This staff can only be weilded by those of intellect high enough to grasp such wisdom.
Where to Find Crystal Staff in Elden Ring
The Crystal Staff weapon can be found at the following location:
- Crystal Staff can be found in academy crystal cave. It's in a room guarded by a sorcerer behind an illusory wall, located right before the boss gate. The path to the chest containing the staff is through an illusory rock wall on the left side of the tunnel, just before the stone archway. Screenshot here. [Elden Ring Map here]
Elden Ring Crystal Staff Notes & Tips
- Weapon Skill: None
- This weapon cannot be infused with Ashes of War
- Crystal Staff can be upgraded by using Somber Smithing Stones
- Increases the damage of Crystalian sorceries by 10%.
- Crystalian sorceries include Crystal Release, Crystal Torrent, and Shattering Crystal.
- Despite their name and appearance, Crystal Barrage and Crystal Burst are NOT Crystallian spells.
- An alternate version of this staff, the Rotten Crystal Staff, exists with seemingly no differences besides appearance and the ability to inflict Scarlet Rot with melee.
- Sell Value: 100.
- With 70 Intelligence, a Crystal Staff +4 has 235 scaling and a Carian Regal Scepter +4 has 238 scaling. That's so close that there's effectively no difference (the scepter does just over 1% more damage). At +10 and 80 Intelligence, it's 373 vs 367 which is less than 2% more. The Crystal Staff is completely free and is very easy to get - you don't even need to kill any boss. The scepter requires killing Rennala and consuming her remembrance which is worth 20k runes. Also the Crystal Staff only requires 48 intelligence instead of 60. The Crystal Staff does weigh 1.5 units more though.
