Homing Crystal Soulmass is a Sorcery in Dark Souls 3. To cast a Sorcery you must use a Staff or Special Weapons that can cast Sorceries.
Homing Crystal Soulmass
Sharpens Homing Soulmass via crystallization.
Releases a homing crystal soulmass. Crystal soulmass has piercing qualities.
According to the Crystal Sage, old Big Hat achieved enlightenment within the Regal Archives, where he came to find the quintessence of sorcery in the facets of a certain crystal.
- Bought from Orbeck of Vinheim for 10,000 souls after obtaining the Crystal Scroll.
- Each crystal soulmass inflicts (Spell Buff x 0.65) magic damage before resistances.
- The number of soulmasses depend on the user's Intelligence stat:
- 30 INT: 4 soulmasses
- 31-99 INT: 5 soulmasses
- Throwing an Alluring Skull or casting Hidden Body will cause the Soulmasses not to fire at you. However, they will still damage you if you touch them. The same goes for Homing Soulmass and Affinity.

Crystal Homing soulmass is better at stunning than homing soulmass
there is no reason to use these over homing soul mass, its double the FP cost for very little more damage, if some one has damage numbers they've seen in game to prove me wrong, go ahead, but looking at the stats? it isn't worth it
Discovered an interesting detail with these and probably all soulmasses. Each mass xan strike a target without being consumed if they come out while you're touching the enemy. They then will fire after. I just wrecked Nameless King with these doing almost 2k damage per cast. Need max cast speed though. Maybe there's a way to further manipulate this effect.
After encountering these atleast a hundred times, I still don't get how tf they work? What decides when they fire? What decides how many fire? It just feels completely random.
Filthy... just filthy
Don't have these active while crossing a rope bridge guys. I just watched a guy sprint to his death.
Not at all fp efficient compared to regular soulmass, of course trading some fp for damage is fine, but 20% more damage in exchange for twice the cost as well as increased cast time makes this not good
So i dont get how they work. Sometimes i see a single soulmass fire, sometimes all of them. Are they proximity based? Do you press any buttons to fire?
is it homing soulmass that a couple bosses use or this???
This spell assumes we are going for 24-30 Attunement... Sheesh.
So! To any experienced players still looking through the wikis- on a hybrid(ish) melee pyromancer who values defensive gimmicks, should I go with Homing Crystal Soulmass or Affinity? Just looking for subjective feedback, but data helps too. 45 Faith 32 INT for the moment. I also care less about PVP and more about utility. I could see HCSM being slightly more useful for its piercing qualities (as I don't have a heck of a lot of anti turtle options in my kit right now other than running behind for the backstab) but if Affinity grossly out damages or is more reliable than HCSM I might stick with it. Would anyone like to argue for one or the other for me?
These are the bane of my existence
The higher your intelligence, the higher amount of inidividual crystals surrounding the player.
so regular's FP cost is 20 and Crystal one's FP cost is 43. Is it worth it to use the Crystal one? Im doing a sorcery pvp build
Bought from: Orbeck of Vinheim for 18,000 souls
Twice the cost, TWICE THE FUN*.*: Warning, fun may not be apparent during the preceding events; getting murdered, you dying, using this spell, being in the vicinity of this spell, seeing the damage of the spell, trying to spell, and other various spelling incidents. Contact a doctor if usage of this spell turns you impotent and/or a cow for more than five minutes. Consult your doctor before use. CHS may not be for everyone, especially for those that need to gitgud.
at 60 int, +10 court sorc staff, young dragon ring, bellowing dragon ring, dusk crown. Only does half damage to anyone in PVP when all 5 souls connect. Compared to DS1 & 2, feels extremely weak
low dammage sorceries are weak in this dark soulsPyro > all
