Once you’ve figured out which combination of Crystal Tears is right for your build, adventuring through the massive world of the Lands Between will be a little less punishing.

But, having a great Wondrous Physick Flask isn’t the only thing you should focus on. Make sure you find all the Golden Seed locations to upgrade the number of uses of your Cerleuan and Crimson Flasks.

And, if you’ve already sunk in a ton of time and find that your build isn’t what you were hoping for, don’t worry. There’s a way to respec your character. Just make sure you’ve found some Larval Tears first.
