Elden Ring is without a doubt one of the most challenging games in recent memory. The sheer number of nigh-immortal bosses and trap-riddled dungeons is sure to give any newcomer to FromSoftware's action RPGs cause for concern. If you wish to stand a chance at becoming the next Elden Lord, you will need to upgrade your weapons.

This game allows players to use special items known as Smithing Stones to reforge them into more powerful versions when conversing with blacksmiths. With literally hundreds of Smithing Stones scattered across the Lands Between, a new player would be easily stumped as to where they should begin looking for them. So, we have put together a list of all the Smithing Stones that have been discovered thus far in Elden Ring.

Smithing Stones can be a challenge to find, especially when you first begin your journey in the Lands Between. Thankfully, there are some locales that are most likely to have Smithing Stones in them. For example, there are mini-dungeons labeled "tunnels" (like the "Limgrave Tunnel" for example) where you can find several Smithing Stones trapped inside orange or silver crystals strewn about the dungeon's walls. And the farther you explore outside of Limgrave, the more advanced Smithing Stones you will discover.

Caves and mines aren't the only places where you will find Smithing Stones. You can find them anywhere on the open world, in treasure chests, or even as loot drops from enemies and bosses. However, if you want a guaranteed supply of Smithing Stones, you can purchase them from the Twin Maiden Husks NPC located in the Roundtable Hold hub area. However, these merchants will only sell the stones once you have given them special key items called Bell Bearings. These exceptionally rare key items are usually held by mini-bosses or contained in chests found in the game's more difficult dungeons.
