Ravenous Crystal Lizard is an Enemy in Dark Souls 3.


Ravenous Crystal Lizard Background

These imposing beasts, being larger versions of the Crystal Lizards, offer quite a challenge with their large health pool and swift and erratic attack patterns. Their dorsal surface is almost entirely covered by glittering crystals, used in some of the creature's most deadly attacks.

These lizards are just as sought-after as their smaller counterparts, due to the precious upgrade materials they drop. However, killing one is no small feat and players will need to pay attention or use a particularly stable shield. This beast is present in the game's tutorial area, and is likely to claim many stubborn lives in the Cemetery of Ash.


Ravenous Crystal Combat Information

  • Its attacks are somewhat varied. They include a rolling attack, which is a similar poise-breaker to the Skeleton Wheel and can be deadly.
  • Will jump at the player, or use its front legs (it has eight, four of which are unused) or tail.
  • Uses a crystal-breath attack, which deals Magic Damage.
  • Repetitive blows will break their poise, which allows you to perform a critical strike.


Ravenous Crystal Notes and Trivia

  • Does not respawn.
  • All drops are fixed.

      If you’re playing as a pyromancer I highly recommend using Iron Flesh, it lets you tank some of it’s heavier melee attacks and get in pretty good damage fairly quickly.

        I remember finishing bloodborne and playing this for the first time. I was dodging like a madman and kept running out of stamina. I learned to manage it after him lol

          Hi, i tried with the Vordt great Hammer, even if the enemy is immune to Frost damage, the fight was pretty easy if you dodge wisely !

            I love how these guys look! They're awesome! The fight with it was amazing, took some time but i didn't rage. First i was stupid and thought it was part of the tutorial- Haha... Great design as always. And the souls he gave were realy needed at the point! I beat it with losing 2 Estus Flasks. It was fun though! -JPuppet

              How to cheese the first Great Crystal Lizard in the cemetary of Ash - This strategy requires nothing more then a weapon and keeping a cool head. First, agro the lizard to chase you and lead it to the edge of a nearby ledge (ledge not cliff), try to get the lizard to follow you down into the water, run around but up onto the ledge and simply fall onto his head. DON’T DIVE STRIKE! Just simply walking onto his head will instantly trigger a riposte opertunity and when that happens, let the lizard have it, run around back up onto the ledge a repeat over and over until it dies. It’s quit simple and is far better then wasting time hitting R1 all the time. It’s temping to do power dive but I strongly urge you not to for it takes too long to recover and you’ll most likely miss the riposte.

                The Titanite Scale item info says Ravenous Crystal Lizards are created when normal Cystal Lizards consume souls, which makes me think, HOW DID A NORMAL CRYSTAL LIZARD MANAGE TO KILL ANYONE TO CONSUME THEIR SOULS? No wonder these things didn't make an appearance until now, lol.

                  I didn't know I could riposte these guys (as well as the giant crabs) until I did one today. This seems to be a different kind of riposte compared to other enemies, and I've seen a similar moved pulled on the Demon Prince. Can this stun attack be triggered deliberately?

                    This guy was difficult in the first stage, though with determination, dodge rolling, keeping the shield up, and examining moves, despite being new to the franchise, I beat 'em. Maybe all that early game giant killing in Skyrim boosted my ability to quickly change playstyles, cheese, and generally take on more difficult enemies

                        Well, I'm new to dark souls ant the sense of adventure got the best of me. At the start of the game I thought the game was easy, until I stumbled into this monster and it utterly destroyed me. I haven't tried to beat him since.
