Utilizing our Elden Ring walkthrough, you will be able to successfully complete the Lakeside Crystal Cave dungeon and defeat the Bloodhound Knight.
The Liurnia of the Lakes region of Elden Ring contains a number of dungeons, including the Lakeside Crystal Cave, which is one of the earlier ones. It is very dark, and demi-humans are hiding around every corner, ready to ambush you at any moment. The upper short cavern is home to a demi-human chief who guards a chest containing the Spear Talisman. This artifact boosts the damage done by spear counterattacks and is located in the chest.
Nevertheless, this is not the ultimate boss you will face in the dungeon. At the bottom of the chasm, where it is hidden from view, there is more to discover and investigate. You will need to make use of stealth, jump from platform to platform, and squash snails in order to progress through this dungeon. The effort is more than compensated for by the rewards, which consist of a pair of talismans and a large number of runes.
Upon entering the cave, there is a chest located directly in front of you. You need to open Elden Ring runes up and get the Arteria Leaf that’s inside. Continue along the path heading west until you reach the large hole in the ground. Be wary of the bushes that are directly in front of you because a demi-human will come rushing out of them to attack you. This region is also patrolled by a second demi-human armed with a shield, who, if given the opportunity, will cry for assistance.

This room is constantly patrolled by a menacing demi-human chief. Although he is tough, he is especially susceptible to damage from slashes and the effects of status ailments. As you enter, two more demihumans will try to ambush you; one will come out of the bushes, and the other will come out of the boxes that are across from the waterfall.

Proceed forward into the next room, which has three crystal snails in it. If you want to avoid being harassed by these foes’ annoying area-of-effect attacks, you shouldn’t let them encircle you. Five throwing daggers are found on a corpse that is currently on the floor.
Proceed through the doorway that is located on the north wall of this room. You should immediately look to your left, where you will find a large group of dozing snails encircling a dead body. To prevent yourself from being overwhelmed, either finish them off quickly with attacks that have an area of effect or entice them back through the chamber one at a time.

In the event that you search the bodies that are lying on the ground, you will obtain a smithing stone number 4, a smithing stone number 2, and a lump of flesh. Continue traveling to the west through the cave until you come across three more snails. The entrance that is just ahead of you will take you straight to the boss, without requiring you to travel through any mist. Be ready to engage in combat before you enter the arena.

Slash of the Bloodhound Knight
