Crystal Lizard
Crystal Lizard


A timid species of sparkling reptile cloaked in total mystery. These strange creatures possess a variety of useful, and valuable, stones. These creatures are not well understood, as the procurement of specimens for study is an all-but-futile endeavor; Crystal Lizards are masters of escape and have a marked tendency to do so before anyone can get close enough to catch them.1

  • Several Lizards are located in spots that make looting them difficult. The one at the bottom of Grave of Saints will usually drop its item through the wooden bridge (a known bug with such surfaces).
  • The Lizards located in Harvest Valley and near the second bonfire in Brightstone Cove Tseldora can throw their loot into the bottomless poison pit or the sand pit if killed while moving. This will effectively destroy your loot, as the Lizard will not respawn and the items will not be placed where the Lizard was originally, even if you reload the game or use a bonfire.

Attack Description
None None


Crystal Lizards with a blue gem on their back will not attack under any circumstances. Upon being detected they will turn to face directly away from you and run forward in a straight line. After approximately ten seconds of running they will camouflage themselves and disappear; if they are not killed before this time, they will reappear after resting at a bonfire.

Note, however, that Crystal Lizards are one-time spawns and will only continue to reappear if you fail to deliver a killing blow; once defeated they will not respawn until the next game cycle or the use of a Bonfire Ascetic. These elusive creatures are tiny and exceedingly difficult to hit; they also have a unusually high defense and can survive several blows from a weak or base level weapon.

Any Crystal Lizard at any bonfire intensity can be killed in a single hit by using a 2-H strong attack from either a Raw Malformed Skull +10 or a Raw Old Knight Hammer +10 regardless of character build or stats (so long as you meet the requirements for 2-handing either of these weapons). This was tested at Bonfire Intensity 99 in Dragon's Aerie; no damage boosting gear of any kind was worn. Being in the Covenant of Champions WILL give the Crystal Lizards just enough health to survive however (even with a Ring of Blades +2).
