      I Used this against Maliketh and had a critical hit with only 2 bloody helice weapon art and immediately got to phase 2 without using any flask

        if you use this with the great club you can break godfrey's stance in 2 charged R2. Use with dagger and axe talisman along with spiked cracked tear and you will get a lot of free damage off before this wears off.

          If you play aggressive while on this cocaine, you'll be breaking postures around 5~6 times per boss battle. Very good for bosses and Elite Enemies, literally useless for everything else.

            I stun locked the dragonbarrow bell bearing hunter with this and lightning slash claymore+16. Took away around 60% before the physick ran out. Pretty great

              Frankly I'd rather half for the buff for twice the time (Or somewhere in between)
              Yeah, I know, this tear essentially gives you one free critical if you can play aggressively enough, but that duration just puts me off a lot.

                You had me up till you said 30 seconds. 30 seconds of anything is a waste of a physics slot Even 10 percent over 3 minutes would be more useful

                  This DOES seem to work on ashes of war and spells btw
                  Takes one less Gltinblade Phalanx to break enemies that normally take 3

                    The description in here says it lasts for 30 seconds but on the page showing all crystal tears it says 3 minutes.

                    • It seems to work on weapon arts. I tested with Darkmoon Greatsword and it seems like the charged beams stagger faster. I'll have to do some more testing to confirm for sure. Has anyone had luck using this Cracked Tear with Ashes of War?

                        Map link is incorrect. This is actually from the eastern Minor Erdtree between Fort Faroth and Farum Greatbridge.

                        • tested this with rock sling on a troll. normally the 3rd rock sling breaks a troll's stance and with the tear it was also the 3rd rock sling. would probably have to do more testing with other spells and enemies but as for the trolls and rock sling, it didnt work.

                            People will probably undervalue greatly this tear. It am power stancing two great hammers and using this tear on every boss. They literally have no poise and constantly get staggered. This allowed me to put Mohg, Lord of Blood to 15% health AFTER he was finished spamming "NIHIL". This is because I staggered him to critical state at 50% and abused the riposte and jump attacks to murder him. I was also able to completely destroy Astel, Stars of Darkness with this. Astel got staggered twice and could never enter his phase 2. He died miserably. Absolutely S tier item.

                              Not sure exactly how this works. Is effective in pvp? Like do your attacks go through other player's poise easier?

                                Lasts for 30 seconds. I don't have any hard stats but in some examples I tried, one enemy would take 5 hits to stance break without this tear but would stance break in 3 hits with the buff. It only lasting 30 seconds is the biggest downside as that only gives you enough time to stance break enemies once or twice before the buff wears off.
