Elden Ring’s weapon upgrade system more or less ensures that you’ll end up requiring Somber Smithing Stone 5 during your playthrough. So, here’s where to find this resource, and the best way to farm Somber Smithing Stone 5.

If you’re planning on using weapons like Bloodhound’s Fang or Blasphemous Blade as your primary armaments in Elden Ring, you’ll need Somber Smithing Stone 5 to upgrade them beyond a certain level. This rare upgrade material can be found sparingly throughout the Lands Between, but there is a way to secure an unlimited supply.

With this in mind, here are some locations where you can find Somber Smithing Stone 5 in Elden Ring, including the best way to farm it.

Elden Ring: Best method to farm Somber Smithing Stone 5

To farm Somber Smithing Stone 5 in Elden Ring, you’ll need to get Somberstone Miner’s Bell Bearing 3. By giving this item to the Twin Maiden Husks at Roundtable Hold, you can buy as much of the upgrade material as you like for 9,000 Runes per piece.

You can find the Bell Bearing at the First Church of Marika.

To get the Bell Bearing, you’ll need to have reached the Mountaintops of the Giants region. Once you’re there, head towards the First Church of Marika Site of Grace located on the edge of the frozen lake. You’ll be able to spot a corpse in front of the church’s entrance – loot it to get the Bell Bearing.

If you’re yet to reach the frozen mountaintops, here are some other locations to get Somber Smithing Stone 5 in Elden Ring:

  • Caelid: From the Inner Aeonia grace site, head northwest until you spot a dark valley. Ride through it while avoiding the exploding worms and eventually you’ll come across a School of Graven Mages. A corpse sitting right next to the abomination can be looted to get the Somber Smithing Stone.
  • Atlas Plateau: You can loot a Somber Smithing Stone 5 from a corpse in an unmarked ruin on a cliff by heading west from the Outer Wall Battleground grace site.
  • Mt. Gelmir: If you’re up for a challenge, defeat the Full-Grown Fallingstar Beast located atop a peak near the Ninth Mt. Gelmir Campsite grace site. Use the spirit spring to leap to the location and start the fight.
