Temporarily boosts intelligence in mixed physick.

Intelligence-knot Crystal Tear is a Crystal Tear in Elden Ring. Crystal Tears can be mixed in the Flask of Wondrous Physick to enhance 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 boosts one's intelligence for a certain duration.



Where to Find Intelligence-knot Crystal Tear:

  • From Road to the Manor Site of Grace, get to the bottom of the cliff (directly East) and follow the cliff's wall North. Guarded by a few Lesser Fingercreepers and one Fingercreeper. [Map Link]
  • Note: Despite the map showing a road down from the Main Caria Manor Gate grace point, there is no safe path to reach the knot from here as it's actually a very tall cliff.

      There's a safe drop down right at the northern lakeward side of the Kingsrealm Ruins by our boy's site of grace or the shoreline path to it's east is fine.

      Riding up the outcrop ramp between the cliff and lake, there's an arteria leaf. With back facing the lake you can target a small hand on a jut of stone. Dropping down to the stone, turn right into the gulley and the second raised area on the left has a pair of small hands and a large one that's buried near the sap-collection vessel which holds the tear.

        Why bother telling people to start at the Road to the Manor site of Grace if the drop down the Cliff is fatal? Why not tell them to start at the Northern Liurnia Lake Shore Grace, where it’s safer?

          As of patch 1.05, when I use this item my damage on rock sling is lower then before using this a bug? Can someone confirm this bug?

            The interwebs said to mix Intelligence-Knot Crystal Tear and Cerulean Crystal Tear together for big gains early on.

            Later will want to switch to Magic Shrouding Cracked Tear/Cerulean Crystal Tear for higher dps.

              I guess it's worth pointing out that the int bonus won't allow you to cast any spells that you otherwise couldn't. Even if you drink the potion, the spell is still crossed out with a red x and uncastable.

                From Northern Liurnia Lake Shore grace, the path is considerbly easier, you don’t need to fall off a cliff.

                    Don't know if it was with the recent patch or not, but my map doesn't show a path like the screenshot above

                      its not a "half-bowl" like the ones everywhere else in the game its a small bowl, under the cliff in the corner as close to the crossroad as you can get

                        there is a yellow mark on the map where you need to get up to see the tears they are at the bottom under the label

                          Along with the other "knot" type crystal tears, this should grant 10 Intelligence (For 3 minutes according to another commenter).
