Elden Ring Crystalian Boss Fight Guide – How To Beat?

Read this guide to learn how to defeat the Crystalian boss in this Elden Ring boss fight.

The Crystalian is a type of boss in Elden Ring, one of the many that exist in this vast and intense game. As their name gives away, these creatures are made up of crystals, and you can spot them in different locations in and around the game. These humanoids can be tricky to defeat for many, however, leading to a lot of confusion as to what is the best way to defeat them. If you are among those players, we have got just the guide for you. Here, we will show you all you need to know about defeating this boss in the game.

How to Beat the Crystalian Boss in Elden Ring?


To defeat the Crystalian boss in Elden Ring, head over to the Raya Lucaria Tunnel. Once you make your way here, you will come across the Crystalian boss herself.

When encountering her, we recommend you two-hand your weapon. In doing so, you have a greater chance of inflicting damage upon your enemies, especially the likes of the Crystalian.

During your battle with this boss, you will notice the presence of two differently-sized circular disks in her hands. Of these, she will constantly hurl the larger disk in your direction. It is important you keep an eye out for this disk. This disk has the potential to land some immense damage, so beware. Try to avoid it as much as possible.

As for the smaller-sized disk, Crystalian will hurl this at you if you are far away from her. There is a possibility you might miss it altogether thanks to the floor geometry and the speed at which the disk comes at you.

Another thing you need to remember about this boss is her inability to walk. If you look very closely, you will notice that she usually leaps into the air, before launching an attack at you.

During this boss fight, we recommend you try and stay as close to the Crystalian as possible. The aim in doing so is to try and shatter the exterior crystalline body that protects this boss. After you successfully do so, the rest of the fight becomes much easier. With the exterior part of the body now gone, the boss becomes as strong as any normal enemy. This makes light work for you. Keep launching a barrage of attacks on the now-weakened boss, and you will defeat her in a matter of a few moments.

Upon defeating Crystalian, you will receive a Smithing Stone Miner’s Bell Bearing (1). Once you acquire this item, head over to Roundtable Hold and hand it over to an NPC next to the library in exchange for the ability to purchase Level 1 & 2 Smithing Stone shards.

That’s about all you need to know about this Elden Ring boss fight with Crystalian. As you can see, this fight is hardly as intimidating as it looks. Keep your distance from the aforementioned circular disks, and you should be good to go!
