Causes concoction to explode in mixed physick

Ruptured 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.

 

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.
Causes concoction to explode.

A defective crystal tear which possesses absolutely no medicinal qualities. A lesson said to be learned the hard way for some; faith can be a volatile matter, after all.

      For anyone wondering the opaline bubbletear and vow of the indomitable do not protect you from the explosion.

        So I was doing some testing and it seems like the Perfumer's Talisman actually lowers the damage for some reason. Can anyone confirm?

          Perfect for a Sundowner cosplay. Dual ruptured crystal tear, two great shields, sacred scorpion charm, golden Vow and.......

            I swear officer, I did not touch that deathbird. I just happened to drink this cool new drink I mixed up, and all of a sudden Im just laying here with it

              I had no idea these had any worthwhile use. I thought the ruptured crystal tears were a humorous way to say f**k you buddy! to a boss or strong enemy that's close to killing you.

              Has anyone tried it and are sure it works on the death rite bird at mountain top of the giants?

              • Anonymous

                Btw it oneshot any ritual deathbird if used right (shared order, sacred scorpion charm, contagious furry -> about 100% increase (against servant of death ennemies, who already have a huge holy debuff)).

                You can even go the mile further and rebuild to 800 hp, equip the twin kite shield in your right hand, have the kindred of rot exultation, mushroom crown and red feather talisman on, poison yourself and drink the flask.

                The low health buff will trigger instantly and apply to the explosion damage, and the poison will trigger the exultation's effect.

                There you'll be looking at 160% increase.

                  If you have 800 HP and use red feathered branchsword talisman, it'll increase the damage on explosion. Include rkr art of war, golden vow incantation and twinbird kite shield and you'll deal 7700 damage, use dragon incantation to inflict frostbite beforehand and you'll do 10k. Enjoy suicide bombing everything!

                    So I go to the concentrated snowfield kill that one, then go to the one near the converted tower and it doesn't spawn? Do I have to kill this one in my next journey or is there something I'm missing?

                      I use both of these on my low lvl pvp builds when I invade someone at lvl 20 with +3 weapons and they got 2 people spamming rivers of blood by password summoning their 100+ lvl friends to carry them, they're so thirsty for that L2 1shot when they see you that you can easily pop this and get them all

                      • You can abuse the iFrames of the explosion when walking off the top of Divine Bridge elevator to enter Leyndell through the back door. The timing is super tight, but if you attack while in mid-air and explode just above the railing of the elevator platform, you'll land on it without fall damage (only the explosion damage). Great for getting unique loot like Bolt of Gransax and Sanctified Whetblade early.

                          Can this be blocked in PVP or is this unblockable? Not the damage to self, I assume that's nonnegotiable, the damage to the attacker.

                          • I'm not sure which one it is but both Avatars don't appear for me, i have one ruptured crystal tear and neither tree has an Avatar to drop me another. I can still summon an ash at the one in Concecrated Snowfield if that means anything.

                              With 99 faith + golden vow + sacred scorpion charm + crucible tree set, this will deal around 1400 - 1900 damage in PvP.

                                What is the range on the explosion? I don't know if its my connection but the range seems inconsistent af. I've hit people from a moderate distance for 1000+ damage but at the same time miss people right next to me

                                        After some experimentation I managed to get the damage of a dual ruptured tear flask up to 1708 on the knights at Elphael Inner Wall grace at lvl 150 with 12 Faith

                                        It deals holy damage (Perhaps more faith will up it's damage?)

                                        I only managed to get a few items to stack & work together to increase it's damage.

                                        Sacred Scorpion Charm (+ Holy Damage)
                                        Seppuku (Lance+25) + Lord of Blood's Exultation (+ Attack power if blood loss in area)
                                        Golden Vow (Golden Halberd+10) (+ Dmg Buff)

                                        I did not see any effects with Royal Knights Resolve or Determination in my testing.

                                        At 1708 damage on npc's, players are typically 1-shot nearly every time unless they have a lot of vigor and/or holy damage negation, perfect for those 3v1 invasions!

                                          This with Starscourge ash of war is hilarious. You don’t even need to R2 after L2. The L2 explosion combined with this is insta death

                                            Holy shrouding tear affects this as well, useful if you only have the one. Better to just use RKR or determination though

                                              Oh man invaded at morne Castle and all the enemies were dead and I didn't see the host on the compass. Noticed he was right below me and his summons hiding off to both sides waiting to ambush. Drank a double shot and jumped right down next to the host. He barely had time to turn and lock on before everyone got nuked. This is terrible and I effing love it.

                                                The ultimate bane of t-bagging hosts who hide behind summons and hunters spamming Moonveil. If FromSoft wants to make it as unfair as possible for the invaders, then **** it, I'm going to embrace it. I'll keep chugging these and worming my way right into the middle of them all and give them their own taste of the bullshit. A noble martyrdom.

                                                  Does equipping two of these cause a greater loss of HP for more damage in the explosion or does it explode and do damage to yourself twice? How does double stacking these work?

                                                  • So the damage is boosted by the sacred scorpion charm, golden vow and Royal Knight's Resolve, so with both equipped it dealt about 1210 to someone in PvP. Neither the boost attack at low equip load and the one for at max hp talismans make it do more however.

                                                    • Removed the claim this comes from Groveside Cave - it does not. If it did back in the Network Test, then it doesn't anymore and therefore does not need to be listed as being obtainable from there.

                                                        The first Tear is not obtained by completing the Groveside Cave, but by defeating the Putrid Avatar of the Minor Erdtree in Consecrated Snowfield (you also get the Thorny Cracked Tear from this Putrid Avatar). When you arrive at the Minor Erdtree, go clockwise around it until the area to your left opens up, the Putrid Avatar will be there.

                                                          This can be combined with the Endure weapon art (or possibly any other source of anti-knockback) in order to stop yourself from launching, this won't negate the damage but will allow you to follow up on blowing people up.

                                                            Could this be used with the one that keeps your runes on death as a sort of suicide bomb to keep your runes?
