Elden Ring Miner Locations

Miners in Elden Ring can drop some useful items including some Smithing Stones. For the drops, players would naturally want to know about their location.

Miners are Humanoid Enemies in Elden Ring, primarily made of stones. These aggressive creatures like to reside in hidden places, such as mining caves and narrow tunnels of the Lands Between. These are weak against magic, but almost immune to slashing attacks.

This guide covers the locations of these miners and the drops they provide on being killed in Elden Ring.
