Where to Find Crystal Lizards | Crystal Lizard Nest Farming

This is a general guide to hunting and killing Crystal Lizards in Demon's Souls (DS) Remake for the PS5. Read on to find out where each Crystal Lizard is, how to ill them, their drops depending on their location, and their spawn rate.

What is a Crystal Lizard

A Rare Enemy That Drops Crafting Materials

A Crystal Lizard is a shiny creature you rarely see when exploring the Archstones. They drop rare crafting materials so make sure to kill them (not by falling or you won't be able to get their loot) for those rare items.

Disappears After A Few Seconds

The Crystal Lizards will run away then pause for a few seconds. Make sure to attack them when they pause or they will successfully run away!

Crystal Lizards Does Not Infinitely Respawn

Crystal Lizards, once slain, will vanish entirely until you have slain a demon in that area. This means that slaying all demons will mean that you can never spawn additional Crystal Lizards for that Archstone, but the amount of times they spawn will stack with each demon slain, up to 4 times.

How to Kill Crystal Lizards

Crystal Lizards are cowardly creatures and will instantly run at the first sight of enemies. They have a wide detection range so approaching them will be hard.... normally at least.

Equip the Thief Ring

The Thief Ring allows you to sneak up on the lizards allowing you to get in melee range. This allows you to easily pick off the lizards one by one.

Use a Weapon With a Vertical Attack

The Crystal Lizard's small size causes most weapon attacks to miss. Use an attack that hits downwards to hit these elusive creatures.

Alternatively, Use Sorcery or Ranged Attacks to Hit Them

While sniping them may be hard, if you have a clear view of the lizard, sniping them becomes completely possible. For sorceries, you can opt for using high damaging spells like God's Wrath to immediately decimate Crystal Lizards in the vicinity (more on this later).

How To Farm Crystal Lizards

Hunt Them In Their Nest

The Crystal Lizards nest can be found in Stonefang Tunnel 2-2. There are a huge group of them in the nest and landing in the center then using God's Wrath can net you several rare ores.
