Bloodred Crystal is an item available in Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen.


"A gem harvested from the carcass of a strigoi."


  • Dropped by Strigoi, only if they manage to drain blood from the Arisen or their pawns, indicated by a red glow in their tails.


Method for Acquiring

Due to the landscape of the area, farming the 3 Strigoi that spawn with 3 Sirens and 3 Gargoyles as a random encounter in The Black Abbey (Post-Daimon) is a good method for acquiring this rare drop. With a party of three pawns and a Liftstone in the Arisen's inventory, simply run around dodging attacks while monitoring the pawns. More likely than not, a Strigoi will use its impale attack on one of the pawns. Wait a couple of seconds after the Strigoi's tail begins glowing red and then rush in to kill it. Watch for the drops - the Bloodred Crystal is a red sphere. Pick it up and then either use a Liftstone or kill the remaining enemies.

Godsbaning may be used to speed up farming. If a Bloodred Crystal is not dropped, the player can simply use the Godsbane blade to kill themselves and load their save to try again.

  • If the pawn is dead when the Strigoi drains their blood, the Strigoi's tail may still glow, but only for a short period of time. It's necessary to heal the pawns every time their health drops too low (<2,000 of HP).
