Where to find Sacred Tears in Elden Ring

Alex Tsiaoussidis

In Elden Ring Sacred Tears are a crucial resource for survival but where exactly can you find these useful items in The Lands Between? 

FromSoftware’s Elden Ring can be a daunting experience with how hostile the open world is, and the steep learning curve of the Souls gameplay loop, so you’ll need a lot of different things to survive including Sacred Tears.

These are some of the most essential resources you can find in the game as they increase the potency of recovery items, so collecting them all can result in you becoming more resilient. This is where you can find Sacred Tears in the game.

Where to find Sacred Tears in Elden Ring

Sacred Tears are all located at churches throughout the world, typically near the main statue or altar. While this can make them relatively easy to find compared to other items, it can be difficult to just stumble upon them by chance.

To make things easier for you, we’ve compiled a list of all those locations in order of how early you can find them in the table below. Just remember that while some can be looted with ease, others require you to fend off powerful enemies.

Sacred Tear Number Location
1 Third Church of Marika in Limgrave
2 Callu Baptismal Church in Limgrave
3 Church of Pilgrimage in Limgrave
4 Fourth Church of Marika in Limgrave
5 Church of Irith in Liurnia of the Lakes
6 Bellum Church in Liurnia of the Lakes
7 Church of Inhibition in Liurnia of the Lakes
8 Second Church of Marika in Altus Plateau
9 Stormcaller Church in Altus Plateau
10 Church of the Plague in Caelid
11 Church of Repose in Mountaintops of the Giants
12 First Church of Marika in Mountaintop of the Giants

What do Sacred Tears do?

Sacred Tears are used to upgrade Flasks of Crimson Tears, and Flask of Cerulean Tears in Elden Ring. You can do this by visiting any Site of Grace in the game.

By collecting all the Sacred Tears you can increase the potency of each flash by up to +12. So the more Sacred Tears you collect, the more HP, and FP you’ll be able to restore.
