Purifies the Lord of Blood's curse in a mixed physick

Purifying Crystal Tear is a Crystal Tear in Elden Ring. Crystal Tears can be used and mixed to enhance the effects of the Flask of Wondrous Physick. Unlike other Crystal Tears, it is lost in New Game Plus.

 

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

Can be mixed in the Flask of Wonderous Physick.
The resulting concoction purifies the curse from Mohg, Lord of Blood's terrifying rite of blood.

 

Where to find Purifying Crystal Tear

 

Purifying Crystal Tear Notes & Tips

  • Used to negate the curse effect during the fight against Mohg, Lord of Blood.
  • Can be used at any point in the boss fight, before the second phase transition, to prevent all blood loss from the curse, although the boss still gets his health back.
  • 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)

    • It would be neat if this reduced the effects of another player's Bloodmoon Ritual. Not useful at all since that would require you to setup your flask just to screw over one specific weapon but neat, nonetheless.

        If you're an INT build, combine this with Cerulean Hidden Tear (removes FP cost for a duration) and blast 'em with a full-charged Azur Comet while he's doing nihil. He's standing still and there should be plenty of damage to negate his healing.

          I don't mind how obscure and strange of a mechanic this is but I dislike that he still heals even if his curse thing fails.
          Feels like a half commitment on From's part.

            I should note, I am on NG+2 and have not been to the altus plateau in this playthrough, and I have it in my inventory. so the "Unlike other Crystal Tears, it is lost in New Game Plus" is completely false.

              Yea thanks from. How foolish of me for not realizing i need a random crystal tear i get from a random npc questline without 0 hints just to fight a bossfight without wasting 2 estus flasks. Honestly such good game design. I hope they remaster ds3 and make it so you can only get the storm ruler by doing siegwards questline.

                    I both love and hate this tear, On one hand, I really like the concept of items that you aren't told about that can help in boss battles. It makes you feel really good when you remember that some object you found on your own could be used for this specific moment. Problem is, without knowing about it before hand, 95% of people will never be able to use this. The fact that it's found super far away, and only from an invasion that is part of a questline you may not even find in the first place, means, even if you trigger the invasion, it could be tens or 100+ hours until you actually fight Mohg so you'll probably forget all about it, or, you could have already fought him by the time you get it. Also, the fact that the thing that this tear will help with is forced damage sucks. So if you don't find it and use it, which most won't, you have to take damage. It would have been so much better if they had placed this early on in Mohgwyn's Palace so that, 1. you actually have a good chance of finding it, 2. you don't find it right before the fight, which would be a bit lame and 3. it would also be close enough that you would remember that you picked it up. I think that Margit's Shackle is an example of this idea being executed better.

                      i dont know what people are saying about "Purifying Crystal Tear doesn't guard against the curse" You're just timing the usage wrong, always do it when he goes to Unus, because he's soon to activate his curse attack around the same time

                        I did Mohg before reading about this tear, it isn't required for the fight. Just be prepared to chug an estus for each curse circle going off.

                          OK so this **** is broken, it seems. I got invaded and never got the tear. Guess I'm not doing Mohg on this playthrough.

                            This item should also grant immunity to bleed for 3 minutes. This way it'll serve as more than just an item that's useful for a single boss fight and will indirectly balance bleed weapons in pvp (which as of 1.03.2 are a little overpowered) while keeping them strong for pve.

                              So many people use this with their bleed builds having no idea what it does, quite funny really. Do they think it buffs them?

                                With Patch 1.03 the Purifying Tear doesnt negate the whole damage any more and Mohg still heals which he didn't before.

                                They should just have cranked up his 1st phase instead imo aas he still is basicly a onehsot and doesnt move at all as he just goes tres duo.... until he reaches 2nd stage. Guess the healing makes kinda sense as he doesnt die now during the Nihil power which he did before which made him by far one of the easiest bosses as he was busy doing his blood curse while getting destroyed

                                  This is worth to use in the battle since it gives you like 10s of free damage. Doot doot mf-ed lord of blood to death.

                                    My flask of wonderous physick isnt refilling after I used this for the mohg fight I've tried resting at different sites of grace, changing tears but nothing is working. It just wont refill

                                      The obligatory hidden item to make boss easier that 99% of players will miss because its not even remotely close to the boss

                                        I played with it for 60h thinking that's boosting my bleed. Yet, the only thing it was boosting was my morale

                                            Doesn't actually make you immune to the nihil thing, you take a little bit of damage. For safety, if your health is below a third or quarter, heal! Also i guess the only way to no-hit mohg is to just respec into full int and comet azur...

                                              When you use this, you get a red bubble around your character that shatters on the third cast of his AoE, preventing all damage taken. It lasts a long time so you can use it before the fight starts and not worry about the phase transition.

                                                does anybody know if this removes the current curse mohg adds or if it’s an effect with a duration that can prevent the curse throughout the fight?

                                                  Am I the only one who thinks they should do a better job leading players to this tear? I had to look up how to avoid nihil and was led to a random ass church

                                                    Yura's questline doesn't need to be done. I wasn't invaded on my first visit, but after fighting Mohg she invaded.
                                                    I also killed shunning grounds Mohg, if that counts

                                                      This item can still be acquired if you partially do Yura’s questline. All I did with him was the Reduvia invasion that he helps with and I also talked to him after killing Ahgeel. After he’d already been possessed I thought I might be screwed, but I went to the spot he’s supposed to be at by the Academy Main Gate and his katana was laying on the ground. After picking this up I went to the church and was invaded.

                                                        I definitely dont remember doing anything for Yura's questline before I came back to kill the invader for this, probably not a prerequisite

                                                        • Eleonora spawned for me by revisiting the church for cleanup before NG+. The only part of Yura's Quest I did was killing the invader with Reduvia near Murkwater Cave - didnt speak to him near Agheel, didnt help him invade in Lucaria Academy and didnt speak to him at any place. Yet she invades me even if Yura is already dead / possessed by Shabriri. The only thing Im missing from his quest is his weapon and whatever the guy in the academy drops.

                                                          I guess its made that way so you wont miss out on that crucial item for Mohg.
