Where to Find Lightning Strike in Elden Ring

The Lightning Strike Incantation spell can be found from a Teardrop Scarab in the Weeping peninsula region, situated south of Limgrave. First, you have to reach a canyon located between the Erdtree and the Ailing Village.

If you already have access to the Morne Tunnel Site of Grace, then you can use it to fast travel to the canyon. Alternatively, you can use the Ailing Village Outskirts Site of Grace as well. From here, you need to travel to the southwest until you reach the canyon.

To get down to the bottom of it, you can use your Torrent mount. Mount it and start jumping on the extended rock platforms one by one. These platforms serve as stairs to reach the bottom of the canyon.

Once you are at the bottom by using either of the ways, be vigilant because the area is guarded by giant Vampire bats. Explore the area and you will find a Golden Scarab wandering in the canyon. Follow up and defeat the Scarab to get the Lightning Spell Incantation as a reward.
