Dark Souls 3: How To Beat The Crystal Sage Boss

The boss found on the Road of Sacrifices is one that forms an offense almost entirely from sorceries. The Crystal Sage, one of the famous Big Hat Logan's few students, has lost their sanity since leaving the legendary sorcerer's tutelage and now resides in the Crucifixion Woods, where Dark Souls 3 players will encounter them amidst some ruins.

It can be challenging to deal with the variety of spells that the Crystal Sage unleashes, though not impossible. In fact, there are a few ways to take down this boss in much easier manners than one would expect.

This boss' lack of armor and their focus on ranged attacks means that they are fairly easy to dominate at close range. The Crystal Sage can even be staggered if the player has a high enough attack rating. At close-range, the sage will usually try to slash at the player with their rapier, which can be annoying as it is hard to see coming.

Thankfully, these slash attacks don't do a great deal of damage to either one's health when hit or stamina when blocked, and this is likely due to the large spellcaster's noodle-like arms. The rapier attacks are much preferable to deal with than the plethora of sorceries that the sage can cast, so be sure to stay as close to the big-hatted boss as possible to avoid the magic. This can be tricky when they start teleporting, though this can be somewhat countered by continuously running towards them to decrease the amount of time that they have to cast spells.

However, when the Crystal Sage's health bar drops to below the halfway mark, they will enter phase 2, where they will begin summoning clones to aid them in attempting to overwhelm the players with spells. This can make things a bit tricky, though these clones can be differentiated from the real sage by the color of their magic: clones use blue spells whereas the real one uses purple spells.

Since the clones dissipate when struck, regardless of the damage dealt, any attack will do to get rid of them. Running attacks with one's melee weapon, or consumable items like Throwing Knives and Firebombs, are the most effective method of getting rid of the clones. Since the Crystal Sage is weak to lightning, fire, dark, and poison, it can be very helpful to buff one's weapon both before and during this boss battle.

If one is intending to use a bow for this fight, it is recommended to bring a lot of ammunition. Since there are quite a few pillars in the boss arena, players should use them as cover to avoid most of the Crystal Sage's spells. However, be wary as one of their attacks causes magic missiles to rain down from above and will not be blocked by the pillars.

When the 2nd phase begins, the player will have to perform hit and run tactics as the clones can be arguably more dangerous for archers than the boss' main body, for they can surround the player and render the cover of the pillars useless. Take them out with well-placed shots before focusing on the real sage. Rinse and repeat until the boss runs out of health.
