Elden Ring has several powerful weapons to choose from, the Meteorite Staff being one of them. The weapon is specifically tailored for spellcasters and sorcerers.
The Meteorite Staff is interesting as it is wielded by a dead body located in the Swamp of Aeonia, a region located in the center of Caelid. This is a great item for gravity sorcery but not throughout the game as it cannot be upgraded, hence not remaining compatible with the advancing playthrough.
Our guide will provide you with the Meteorite Staff location in Elden Ring and help you get the weapon fairly early in the game.
Meteorite Staff location in Elden Ring
Meteorite Staff can be found within the Caelid region at the east of Limgrave, specifically in the muddy swamps near the street of Sages Ruins known as the Swamps of Aeonia.
By following a specific route in the beginning, players can reach the destination and get the Meteorite Staff easily. There is also another route but it is difficult and is stacked with dangers.
There is hence no reason to risk your life by getting into unnecessary fights.
Before the players start the journey to Meteorite Staff, it is highly recommended to unlock the Torrent mount before starting the journey. Torrent will prove to be very handy during the voyage in sense of traveling across the open world and tackling the enemy.
To start the quest, take the starting location of the Astray site of grace and travel towards Limgrave through the Marshy area. Stop when you see the Dragon Burnt Ruins. There would be an entrance taking you down to an underground crypt.
The entrance is heavily guarded by enemies. The enemies must be dealt with to enter the crypt. The zombified enemies are not difficult to defeat but the two rabid dogs may be a problem for you. They attack very swiftly and hence the players must be cautious.
When done with the enemies at the entrance, descend the stairs with great caution as giant rats are waiting at the bottom. After being done with them as well, players will find a treasure chest at the bottom of the descending tunnel.
Once they open the chest, the payers will be teleported to Caelid. After being transported, the players will find themselves in a crystal room teeming with enemies. These enemies need to be avoided and dealt with appropriately as they can inflict poison status on you.
Wait for some time so that you can dodge the patrol there and then carefully move down to Grace’s site, Sellia Crystal Tunnel.
Move to your left and head to exit the mineshaft into Caedil. Now, using Torrent, move along the left shore.
Ride southwest through the streets of Sages Ruins and stop when you see a small staircase. Players can either avoid the poisonous plant inside the building and go around the structure.
Alternatively, they can directly go inside and kill the plant but they also need to be mindful of the Scarlet Rot covering the area. Afterward, they can take the Meteorite Staff from the corpse hanging out the window.
After obtaining the Meteorite Staff, you can use it to buff your gravity spells and use them against many strong enemies that otherwise cannot be defeated using Magic such as the Dragonlord Placidusax and other Glintstone Dragons including Adula and Smarag.
How to use the Meteorite Staff in Elden Ring
The Meteorite Staff has an S-ranked intelligence scaling which requires only 18 Intelligence and is an ideal weapon of choice for spellcasters in the game. This staff gives you a standard 39 rating plus 16 physical damage. it also gives 100 critical and 143 sorcery scaling. The Meteroite Staff is not associated with a certain skill and it does not have an FP cost as well.
You’ll require a few handy spells since this staff utilizes spells for the maximum damage output. Rest at the nearby site of grace to gain spells. It is best to equip more than two spells but even a couple will suffice. The Gravity spells that are boosted by the Meteorite Staff include:
- Rock Sling Spell which can be used to throw meteors
- Collapsing Stars Spell used to manipulate gravity
- Gravity Well Spell to launch a gravity projectile that draws the enemy
- Meteorite Spell to fire 3 small meteors
- Meteorite of Astel Spell to fire many small meteors
To get the desired spells, you can buy them from a sorceress who resides in the waypoint ruins. She will probably have spells that you can use in combo for various attacks.
How to upgrade the Meteorite Staff
The Meteorite Staff cannot be upgraded and neither can you apply Ashes of War on the staff. It can also not be enhanced with buffs and magic.
It, however, increases the power of gravity sorceries and boosts intelligence. Thus, it is a great Staff to have early on in the game but you should look into other Glintstone Staves as the game progresses.
You can sell the Meteorite Staff for 200 Runes so it also benefits you monetarily when you choose to give it off.
The Demi-Human Queen’s Staff is a much better option compared to the Meteorite Staff, especially when you consider the damage you’ll need in the endgame.
