Dark Souls Crystal Lizard Locations and Rare Item Drops Guide

By   /   4 years ago


Rare Items in Dark Souls drop off from the rare enemies. Among these rare enemies are Crystal Lizards who drop a rare form of Titanite. They are tricky to find since they spawn only for once per play through in each area.

Though you can rest at bonfire to make them respawn. Or you can reload the game if they escaped you the first time and if you are lucky, they may respawn.

These enemies aren’t the fighting type, so as soon as they see you, they run and try to escape you. You need to be quick in executing them or you will miss your chance. Below you will find the locations where you should look for them.

For more help on Dark Souls, read our Walkthrough to help you complete all the quests of each area, Magic guide to give you insight on all the spells, Souls Farming to learn where you can farm souls, and finally Boss Strategy Guide for tips on how to fight all the bosses in Dark Souls.

Dark Souls Crystal Lizard Locations

For the normal items, refer to our Items Guide. If you want rare items, find these lizards and kill them to get a rare item they drop off.

Tomb of Giants
Location. Look for it along a narrow slope as you leave the darkness.

The Great Hollow

  • From the bonfire at the start, jump down to the fat branch. Move down to the wall and jump down to the branch below then to your left and finally to the platform below.
  • Continue on the path where you found the first lizards and you may get lucky. Crystal Lizards randomly appear on this path, so keep revisiting the area until you come across them.
  • From your starting point, look for a Crystal Lizard near the U-shaped bend in the main branch.
  • You will find it after you jump down from the Basilisk Nest.

Lost Izalith
Location. Take the shortcut passage which connects the area before the Demon Firesage and Corridor of the Prowling Demon for a suprise.

Dukes’s Archives
Location. You will find a Crystal Lizard on the stairs before your first battle with Seathe the Scaleless.

Crystal Cave
Location. Crystal Cave houses three Crystal Lizards. Jump down from the second Crystal Golem platform and land on the transparent platform below. Once you are on the transparent platform, look behind for a surprise.
