Elden Ring crystal tear locations

Learn where to find the Flask of Wondrous Physick, how to customise the flask’s effects, and where to find all of the crystal tears in Elden Ring

A Flask of Wondrous Physick in Elden Ring on a blurred background. It uses crystal tears to alter its effects.

Want to know where to find the crystal tears in Elden Ring? Just like the Estus flasks in Dark Souls, you start the game with healing flasks that you can refill at Sites of Grace. However, this isn’t the only type of healing item available – the Flask of Wondrous Physick is a customisable alternative.

To get the Flask of Wondrous Physick, you need to reach the Third Church of Marika in Limgrave East. You will find it in front of a statue, along with a crystal tear that you mix to customise the flask’s effects. These tears are not to be confused with the Elden Ring golden seeds that upgrade the number of charges you have for your Crimson Flask and Cerulean Flask.

There are plenty of other crystal tears you can find in The Lands Between, and their effects trigger simultaneously every time you take a sip, and you can swap them at any Site of Grace. We’ll go over all of the crystal tears’ effects and where you can find them to use with your Flask of Wondrous Physick.
