Where to find Crystal Tears and Sacred Tears in Elden Ring

Looking for the Elden Ring Tear locations? These tears are powerful items and come in two different types: Crystal and Sacred. There's also a new experimental flask: the Flask of Wondrous Physick. With this item, you can brew your very own single dose concoction that provides specific effects, such as not losing runes for a short period if you die, increased stamina regen, or just another hefty bit of health replenishment. 

Like Undead Bone Shards in Dark Souls 3, Sacred Tears increase the potency of your flasks, making them replenish more FP and HP respectively. However, finding Crystal Tears throughout the world will let you change the effects of your Flask of Wondrous Physick, and brew a slightly different potion. Here are the Elden Ring tear locations we've found so far, and where to find the Flask of Wondrous Physick.

How to get the Flask of Wondrous Physick 

You can find the Flask of Wondrous Physick in the Third Church of Marika in East Limgrave. To get there, simply head south along the road from the Agheel Lake North Site of Grace, head across the bridge, then follow the northern road. It'll head under an archway filled with Demi-Humans, and you'll pass a Troll just before arriving there.

Second Church of Marika
In the Altus Plateau, after finding the two Elden Ring Dectus Medallion locations, at the Second Church of Marika, you'll find it under the statue, but beware the Sanguine Noble who appears to fight you. It's best to face him on horseback.

First Church of Marika
In the East Mountaintops of the Giants, head south-east from the Freezing Lake site of grace. Head across the lake and past Borealis to find the church and the tear beneath the statue.
