Putrid Crystalians is a Boss in Elden Ring. Putrid Crystalians are crystalline humanoids inflicted with Scarlet Rot. This is an optional boss as players don't need to defeat it to advance in Elden Ring.

Crystalian is the regular variant of this boss.


The Crystalians are inorganic beings, yet they live. They cleave close to the ideals of the primeval current, and as such, they are revered guests of the sorcerers.

Putrid Crystalian Combat information

Negations (or Absorptions)

The negation numbers are the % of your damage that gets blocked. For example, if a negation is 60, 40% of that damage by that type will go through and 60% will be negated. Bigger number = less damage. A negation of 100 means no damage goes through, and a negation of -100 mean the enemy takes 2x damage from that source. 0 means damage goes pretty much as is.


The resistance numbers are the buildup amount to trigger it. For example, if a resistance is 100 you must deal 100 points of the given buildup to trigger it. Note that these go down over time, and increase each time the effect procs. The values after the "/"s indicate the increased resistances after each successive proc.

      dual wielded collosals with zwei +16 quality as primary and +8 gugs heavy as offhand stats 60vig,50 end, full banished knight set (altered except helm), +4 latenna, and that cracked tear that makes stance break better with talismans being the starscourge one giving +5 str and millicent one giving +5 dex, and jar arsenal to medium roll ... beat them first try... surprised me as well .... had 5 flasks left and was rotted in first 10 seconds with only one stance break but they melt to colossal stance dmg

        Holy ****, I beat them second try as a bleed build using a Morning Star +6. That was intense, I had to hit them like 500 times each.

          you can dodge the mages crystal torrent by circling him and if he does it first play after entering the room just run straight for him and it gives you enough time to get to him

          • Cant wait for some scarlet rot-applying quartet in the dls! "rotten banished knight company" or something, with moveset like in castle sol but rot instead of frost

              Having trouble with these guys as a mage? Then get ready to bring the hammer done with the Gavel of Hama! Pancakes them, has an aoe large enough to hit all three from where they start and very quickly breaks their armor as it counts as blunt damage! Time it right and you can perpetually stunlock them for as long as you have FP.

                Tried to rush this boss as a mage with 10 vit for the spell to nuke Baby morgott (margit) for fun.... not my smartest move... this boss kinda hurts like hell

                  Ok, but lorewise how they are rotted? Does rot affect crystals? All other npcs talk about how the rot affects their flesh, but if crystalians can catch this aids then everything can?

                    i love fromsoft boss design, i love multi boss fights, i love getting ganked in boss fights, i spending time sprinting back to the boss door

                      Does anyone actually die to this trio since that global multi-boss nerf way back? Half the time all they do is just stare at you, I don't really think that was the right way to solve the bosses overwhelming you.

                        take a durable summon, to take some aggro away from you for the start. use hammer jump attacks/heavy attacks and stagger them a lot. Guard counters also work well.

                          Finally found easy way to deal with them as a mage. Anyone can use this actually with right equipment.

                          Night Maiden's Mist sorcery: it wrecks these guys.
                          Summoning is helpful for this, I used +5 Crystalian Spirit Ash.

                          Hoarfrost Stomp Ash of War is also pretty good against them.

                            As a sorcerer, I hates these guys. Worst of all, when I won, I only got the spell and no runes. I found these guys harder than Fia's Champions.
