Elden Ring Smithing Stone Farm Locations, Somber Smithing Stones Explained

Elden Ring Smithing Stones are very important for dealing with the game’s enemies, including those you face early and late-game bosses. Upgrading weapons provides higher base damage stats and improves a weapon’s attribute scaling, meaning you’ll see bigger gains if you also improve your character’s stats in certain categories. However, upgrading weapons, especially multiple weapons, requires a lot of Forging Stones. Forgestones can be found throughout the Lands Between, but here are some of the locations in Elden Ring where each wrought stone and Dark Forgestone find level. If we find more Forge Stones we will add them to this list.
