Dark Souls Crystal Lizard Locations – Where to Find Crystal Lizards

Crystal Lizards are rare enemies who drop a rare form of Large Titanite for equipment upgrades. They are tricky to find since they spawn only for once per playthrough in each area. Below you will find Dark Souls Crystal Lizard Locations to help you in looking for them.

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. Though you can rest at the 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.
