Entrace found behind an Illusory Wall. To reach the entrance, start at the Church of the Plague site of grace and head north up the hill and straight under the wooden arch. Look to the North-East for a small graveyard with a single sorcerer enemy wielding a staff and a club.

Sellia Hideaway Walkthrough

Upon entering the cave past the site of grace, you will encounter a Sorcerer Miner. Past the Golden Rune (3) slightly further in, there is another illusory wall you need to roll through. Another Sorcerer Miner and illusory wall await you. Past this, there is a large cave with massive purple crystals. Head right to find another miner, then go across the crystals and to the left towards the next miner guarding a Golden Rune (5). Go back by jumping above the crystals to the right, then go across the large crystal again, this time heading right. Turn right again and drop down onto another shorter crystal, the jump onto a longer one and drop down into the pit. You should be able to see the magic barrier associated to Sellen's quest from here. If you have the key, go through and talk to Lusat who will give you Stars of Ruin. Turn around and walk over the crystal where you encounter a Revenant. Loot the Stimulating Boluses, Golden Rune (5), and Lost Ashes of War. Turn around and towards the Silver Fireflies, along the path back upwards is a Somber Smithing Stone (4). When you drop down from the crystal at the end, there will be three Crystal Snails waiting for you. Turn left, where you will encounter two sorcerer miners, one of them has more health and a charging attack. Loot the Glowstone x4, then jump across or onto the crystal below, then head into the corridor on the right, passing a Stake of Marika (where you can respawn at should you die).

You'll enter into quite a large crystal formation cave. Hug the right wall, climbing up and over the rocks and rubble. You'll pass on your left shoulder, two (2) very large crystal shards growing from the floor with the third one at a gentle angle. Walk onto this third massive crystal shard and continue walking until you're a few feet away from the tip.

crystalian ashes

Walk off to your right, jump onto a little crystal and then floor to face a Preserving Boluse and an illusory wall leading to a chest containing Crystal Spear. Head back and this time, walk off to your left, which will make a very short drop onto another crystal (short drop to the south). From here, head south and take another very short drop onto yet another crystal shard. Follow this up and until you're on solid ground. There is a pit with some light barely noticeable at the bottom, a campfire, and a room full of several Glintstone Sorcerers (a couple will make use of shields and engage you in melee while the third will casts spells at you). Clear this room and you can claim the Crystalian Ashes, among a few other crafting mats. There is only one exit to take, so head out, make a small drop, and you'll come across a single miner. Once dealt with, you'll be at another short drop with two choices: left, going southwest or right, going northeast. You'll want to turn right, after you drop, heading in a northeast direction. This will take back into the room you did your crystal shard climbing/ dropping to reach the Crystalian Ash summons. Make your way back into the large crystal shard room, dealing with Crystal Snails and you can claim Crystal Dart x10. Nothing more to note in here so, head back into the tunnel, moving southwest towards the fog wall/ boss. Before the boss you will be ambushed by four more snails. Prepare for the boss accordingly: Three (3) Putrid Crystalians who inflict Scarlet Rot on hit. There is a mage, one with a ringblade, and the last one with a lance. Per usual with Crystalians, blunt weapons will crack their shell fast, enabling frontal/ rear backstab and for subsequent better HP damage on them. Your reward is the spell: Crystal Torrent.

Master Lusat's Location

To get to Master Lusat, you'll first need to have talked to Sorceress Sellen and progressed the questline enough to where you will be asked to search for Master Lusat on her behalf (refer to her questline page for more information).

From the room with the overlapping crystals, fall down to the ground and fight the Royal Revenant. In the northwest side of the room, you'll find two small steps leading to a small cavern.

Follow through the cavern, and eventually you'll find yourself walking atop a crystal, with another ledge and a Crystal miner off in the distance. Hop to the other ledge, then head to the leftmost side of the platform.

Looking down off the ledge, you'll see two crystals, connecting you to where a snail sits. Jump down off the ledge, land on the first crystal, then walk along it and jump over to the second crystal, where you can fight the snail. Your goal is to defeat the snail without falling off, then get to where the snail was standing and go a few paces up.

walk on crystal past snail

As you walk towards to the snail, you'll notice on the bottom left corner there is a gate guarded by Sorcery. That is the ultimate location you are trying to get to.door off in distance

Once you get to around where the snail you killed was, it is safe to drop down, and begin your approach to the door -- but note that it is guarded by a Glinstone Sorcerer.

Lastly, walk up to the door and examine it, and the door will open, revealing a short cave.

Proceed through the end of the cave, and Master Lusat will be there waiting for you.

    • Just trivialized this boss, used Fanged Imp Ashes +9 and Lansseax's Glaive, didn't even buff my incantations. no Rune, if you hit them with the glaive they get interrupted and KNOCKED down, also the imps are aggressively battering their shields, did the usual anti rot prep (boluses & Liver) but. the Glaive incantation was amazing. Did a Coup de Grace on the Spear and Ring with Regalia of Eochaid.

      • What a ***show of a boss. I probably spent in the range of 8-10 runes before I got them down. I knew they were vounerable to Night Maiden's Mist, but found it extremely hard to avoid their hits even with different ashes tried.

        In the end I managed to circle around them, spamming mists in front of me whenever I got the chance. And then just kept circling around. Luckily this did the trick in the end. Safe to say I won't be returning anytime soon ;-)

          Good way to deal with the triple boss for mages: Night Maiden's Mist bypasses their derp armor, Pumpkin spirit is tanky enough to keep them busy (at +5 at least). Took 'em down on the first try this way.

            Just FYI if you stand on the ledge above the revenant right when you walk into the room with purple crystals and try to pick it off from up there, it can teleport behind you. Only happened once, when I came back after Sellen’s quest but it was a surprise.

            • Anonymous

              Honestly, I wouldn't be surprised if all the crystal caves just blurred in my head together, but I could've sworn I fought a Bloodhound here as a boss instead of the trio that people, reasonably, are having a ****ing terrible time with.

              Keep in mind, I only did Sellen's questline post final boss, for completion's sake, to see how it plays out, and when I saw the bloodhound, I just thought, "weird choice, but ok"

              No one here has mentioned it's existence or that there was a change to the boss at some point, so I either imagined it or I'm thinking of another crystal cave?

              • As of 1.04 the bosses here were nerfed into the ground. They're extremely unaggressive and rarely attack. i wrnt for the Staff one first and RingBlade and Spear sat around picking their noses and attacked maybe one every 15 seconds. I think even From realized what a mess this fight, was but I don't know if this was the best way to fix it.

                  There are upgrade materials in this cave. There is a somber smithing stone 4 in a hard to reach smaller cave, where you have to jump up to before the bossroom.

                    I have absolutely NO CLUE how FROM ever expected anyone to EVER find this place on their own. All you're told is that Lusat went back to Sellia. So..what would you do?? Go to Sellia and start looking around. You wouldn't go quite a ways North-East of Sellia and decide to explore this random graveyard that has nothing to do with anything. And even if you did do that for some reason, and you decided to go up to that corner of it, all you would find is a unique enemy who you've never seen. You kill him and go "Hm..that was interesting, wonder who that was" and you leave. You are not going to decide to run up to the meaningless cliff behind him and start smacking all around on the cliff wall that is no different from the thousands of other cliff walls in the game that has 0 hint or identifying feature whatsoever. You aren't even told that you're looking for an illusory wall! I guess the idea is that you were supposed to find that unique sorcerer and connect that he is guarding the entrance to the cave, but..no. Telling you to look in Sellia for Lusat is like telling someone to go to NYC and find someone who is hidden under a fake sidewalk that is painted identically to any other sidewalk in the city. Obviously SOMEONE found it, but I have no idea how. Looking in the game files maybe?

                    Honestly, as much of a breathtaking masterpiece as this game is, without guides, 90% of the content would stay hidden. Most questlines are like this where the next location is just some random spot somewhere in this massive open world with no way of knowing when, where to go or how to trigger it. I honestly don't feel bad looking at guides because I'd never find any of this stuff myself, just little bits and pieces.

                      This fight is useless now. Might as well have no boss fight since it's such a joke even without any summons. They ruined this fight.

                          The triple boss was much easier than expected. They will probably adjust it again. I was able to mostly attack one with the two others doing almost nothing. They went from aggro beasts to almost not caring about me being there.

                                Easy fight with shield crash and any blunt weapon imbued with ice. Once frozen, the guys stagger even with a light attack and are stun locked from that point. Remember to swap out the shield with an actual weapon for crits then swap back after.

                                  I don't see it listed t but there's anther creature other than the miners, sorcerer miners, and snails. Idk what it is but apparently it can teleport to you when you attack it if you're not standing on a crystal.

                                    Def nerfed, it's a lot easier to handle the boss. Went in with a Staff of the Avatar with no summons. Spear was still annoying, but the Staff and Ringblade won't do sh-t unless you're near. Focus on the Spear first so the mofo would start walking towards you while the other two move at a slower pace. Kill the Spear first and everything will be a cakewalk. To be fair, I was still hit with the rot due to recklessness but as long as you got boluses or the Flame, Cleanse me, you'll be fine.

                                      The 3 crystalian boss fight are a joke now. They only attack one at a time, two standing still while you beat the one of them into submission.

                                          The most annoying triple boss designed with fast attacks in all three ranges: close (spear poking dude), medium (stays behind throws rings that interrupt your actions) and long range - that damn mage. Needs proper strategy - here is mine that I used after quite a few fails, rage quit and returning later.
                                          WEAPON: blunt damage, need to brake these shells, slice/pierce fails. I used great mace - hits like truck, fast as sword.
                                          WEAPON ART: stamp(upward cut) IMPORTANT - this is the only way to interrupt their actions, they have infinite poise!
                                          SUMMONS: Greatshield Soldier Ashes - it's five of them, pull attention of all three crystalians and tank it
                                          Fight strategy: enter with two-handed blunt, summon ashes and run on left side towards back. All three bosses will have their attention concentrated on shield soldiers, while you run to mage and throw him in the air with upward cut. While he is on ground add damage with jump strike and set up next upward cut. Repeat until dead (for me it was two cuts and jumps with one added to finish). Now run to front where shield soldiers are tanking other two. Properly set upcut can throw both remaining bosses in the air. Finish spear dude first, then ring one - summons help with damage and stunlock.
                                          For me fight was over in 20 sec. Try it.

                                              if you're a caster, gavel of Haima is one of the only spells to do blunt damage and also knock them down every hit. If your summon can occupy all 3 and you get to wailing on em then the armor will break and you can switch to a ranged spell if you'd like

                                                  Wonderous physick: Tear that heals you gradually, and other of your choice (I used the bubble to stop first hit). Summon: Your choice, ideally one that brings multiple to keep the other crystalians busy (I used dogs, weirdly). Method: Go in like Mike Tyson using a souped-up Flail with Wild Strikes. Get punched but punch back harder. Be prepared with the healing flasks and take them down one by one. I didn't plan which one to get down first. It just happened to be the hopping spear nutter as they were the most aggressive, obnoxious psycho out of them. Then came the olympic discus thrower as they thought they were a match for me. How they regretted it. Then it was just the lonely mage who went down like a Black Hawk in Somalia. I struggled so many times barely inflicting anything on this self righteous trio. On first attempt of using the technique described above, they were down and begging for mercy. Number of Runes wasn't worth it. Spell I received after defeating them was out of my IQ range. 2/10. Wouldn't visit again.

                                                          Alright so i found a pretty good method for the Putrid Crystalians, that doesn’t require too much on the player’s end during the fight except focusing on the mage alone. So i used the Greatshield Soldier Ashes+7, the golden vow ash of war to buff them, and some warming stones. They deal all blunt damage, are tanky, and most importantly tend to push fights into a corner, so you summon them, buff them, then go backstab the Caster Crystalian, hopefully with a blunt weapon (i had a nightrider flail) then check on your greatshield soldiers keeping the ring and spear ones attention if most of them are clumped in a corner, go drop a warming stone in the middle of them then go back to wailing on the Caster.

                                                          Repeat til Caster is dead, then focus on the Ring one since they can dodge behind, your summons’ shields, and repeat the method til it’s over, it’s not too hard this way, just becomes a small dow race before your soldiers may die!
                                                          It was simple enough this way, however my backup addition was to go get the perfumer cookbook 1, and also use the Uplifting Perfume on the soldiers for some extra buffing which should help

                                                            Use and upgrade both the boneclub and crystalian ashes found before and in this cave. The crystalian will tank and the boneclub will do damage. After many frustrating rounds this one worked wonders. Also, cleansing fire for the sarlet rot.

                                                                Worse ****in bossfight in the entire game, and i mean it. It's just 3 dudes with 2 moves each and high resistance to most damage types + rot as a gimmick. All this in a room that isn't that big. Also i should mention that the thrown discs are kinda hard to see with the environing purple crystals. In short you either know what to expect when traversing the fog and bring the right loadout and summon, or you get dumpstered. Awful design all the way

                                                                • Couldn't do **** with the Greatsword, got wrecked so hard. They gangsta until I brought Gaint-Crusher +15 (Lion's Claw) into the boss room. Dragonbolt Blessing can make their physical attacks bounce off, interrupting their combos. They broke in like 2-3 minutes and I didn't even try hard. Damn, the weakness on them is pretty extreme I guess.

                                                                  • Anonymous

From here, you can go north west and land on some jutting crystals to fall on a short platform with a crystal snail and some preserving boluses. Hit an illusionary wall behind it to reveal a chest containing the Crystal spear. With nothing more to note in here, head back..."

Which means, feel free to leave and go gather things and/or get spells, equipment, etc because you aren't losing much especially with this very un-generous stake location. Also I feel like a lot of people forget you can summon other people to help, summoning human players is better than any spirit ashes. Ultimately I left the cave, forged a +9 greathorn hammer (which is 9/25 so it still sucks) and whipped it. Spec wise it does 300 dmg compared to my +10 bloodhound which is 700 dmg, but in this fight a hammer rules them all. Seriously don't let it keep you from besting these dastards, just bring a hammer. If it still ain't enough, go back to the start and summon at the pool. I get a strong feeling many bosses like this were intended to be co-op'd especially considering how early you can end up here.

                                                                                    • This is the most annoying fight in the whole game. Truly just awful.

I kept the spear Crystalian chasing after me the whole time while I stopped and tossed mist every time he finished his combo, focusing on burning down the caster who was by far the most annoying. After the caster dies the disc one should be next and lastly the spear guy, as he is easy to kite as long as you are running and not trying to roll dodge backwards.
                                                                                                                  Do yourself a favor if you are a caster and just use the mist, makes life a lot easier.

Overall I have to say that Elden Ring has a lot of highly annoying bosses compared to the previous games.

                                                                                                                            • Anonymous

Skeletal militia summon seems to work best. Focus on the mage one first, spam jump heavies to break him ASAP. If you can get the mage down the fight becomes a lot easier. If your summon is dead and they are all bunched up back up and try to separate them as much as you can. Though it's a nightmare because the cone spell is damn near impossible to dodge. On my winning attempt one skele got killed almost instantly, but the other one ended up reviving at least 3 times, so there's some luck involved too.

                                                                                                                                  From the Stake of Merika, continue through the tunnel into the next crystal room. Notice the huge crystals. These can be used as "platforms" to a secret area containing three sorcerers and the Crystalian Ashes in a chest. So, to access these crystals "platforms", hug the right wall immediately after entering this crystal room. You'll have to jump up and over several rocks while hugging the wall. After a few jumps, you'll notice there is a crystal immediately on your left that you can walk onto. From there, you can see the "platforms" of crystals that you will have to descend onto that will lead you to a new area described above.

Drop down from there and you can find a room with 3 sorcerers and a chest containing the ashes.

It knocks them down regardless of whether or not you've cracked their... skin... and cracks it in the first place very quickly.
