Where to buy Somber Smithing Stone 1 in Elden Ring

Smithing Master Iji and Twin Maiden Husks are two merchants that will sell you Somber Smithing Stone 1 for Runes in Elden Ring.

Smithing Master Iji

The best part about Smithing Master Iji is that he sells you an infinite amount of Somber Smithing Stone 1 in Elden Ring.

Hence, as long as you have enough Runes, you can get as many Somber Stones 1 as you want.

You can find the War Counselor Iji on the road to Caria Manor.

Twin Maiden Husks

The Twin Maiden Husks at the Roundtable Hold might not give you an infinite number of Somber Smithing Stones 1, but they are all you have when it comes to buying Stones in Elden Ring. You have to wait until the merchant restocks the inventory before you can start buying again.

You will need to give the Twin Maiden either Somberstone Miner’s Bell Bearing 1 or Iji’s Bell Bearing to unlock the ability to buy Somber Smithing Stone 1 for 2000 Runes each.
