Note: Pre-Release versions of this game have 2 glitched achievements so far, this is one of them.

Crystal Sage is the 4th boss you will face and is generally straight foward but you can be killed very easily if you don't focus. When you first enter you can run up and hurt him and he will disappear but don't fall for this act as crystals will spawn around the arena and must be destroyed by running into them or more Sages will spawn and when multiple shoot you it can be very deadly.

The more damage that gets done to Sage the more crystals will spawn so at this point late in the fight just keep running for the main sage and after killing him the rest will go away.

Crystal Sage can be found on The Road of Sacrifices. He is located in some ruins directly left after leaving the Halfway Fortress bonfire where you meet Anri and Horus. Between this bonfire and the ruins where the boss is found, there is a hill close to the ruins where you can find the Crucifixion Woods bonfire which is much closer to the boss door incase you die.

Crystal Sage is weak to lightning, use Gold Pine Resin/Gold Pine Bundle to buff your weapon and charge him and hack away until he disappears. He struggles at dealing with close up combat as most of his attacks are ranged soul magic.

Half way through the fight, he will begin to summon clones of himself, each clone can cast the same spells that he does but they have no health. 1 hit will dispatch them. Crystal Sage's magic is purple and makes it easy to see which one is the real one.

He is resistant against magic. Weak to Physical and Lightning Damage including lightning spear. He can also be poisoned.

Easier with a summoned phantom to help obviously, but very doable solo.

Eygon of Carim is a NPC phantom you can summon for this boss fight and is located where the group of enemies were right before the boss door.
