Gelmir Glintstone Staff location in Elden Ring

You can get the Gelmir Glintstone Staff by defeating the first boss of the Temple of Eiglay in Mt. Gelmir.

Begin by heading towards Volcano Manor. From there, you need to select the Temple of Eiglay Site of Grace on the map.

At the grace site, head towards the north corner of the hall. You will find a small archway out of the building. Straight ahead, enter to next building through the open door.


Inside the building, you need to hop on the wooden elevator. This will take you to the first floor. Now, head northwest inside the building.

You will find small enemies along the way, but you can ignore them. Take the stairs down at the end of the path. Continue northwest into a small door.

At the right, enter another door and head east. There you need to fight two Man-Serpents. Then you will come across another Man-Serpent, but he has a potato head this time. Defeat and loot the Man-Serpent to get the Gelmir Glintstone Staff in Elden Ring.

As another reminder, the Gelmir Glinstone Staff drop rate is around 11.11 percent in Elden Ring. Hence, you’ll likely have to make multiple runs until you finally get the drop.

How to use the Gelmir Glintstone Staff

If you’re building a spellcaster or are focusing on sorcery-based attacks, you’ll need to have a Glinstone Staff. It has a hybrid scaling with intelligence and faith.

Minor scaling in Strength can also be achieved. For mixed staff, you need to have equal points in intelligence and a hybrid attribute, which is faith, to get the sorcery scaling you want.

Gelmir Glintstone Staff tips to know

The Gelmir Glintstone Staff does not have any unique skills in Elden Ring. You cannot infuse this staff with the Ashes of War; neither can you buff nor enchant it using magic or consumables.

Gelmir’s Fury, Magma Shot, and Rolling Magma are the magma sorceries included in the weapon and their boost is almost around 15%. The drop rate for this weapon is considerably low, around 11.11% at 100 discovery.
