Best Method to Farm String in Elden Ring

Strings in Elden Ring are hard to get as you have to travel long distances. However, as mentioned before, you can farm string by killing Demi-Humans.

For that, you can go to the Coastal Cave in Limgrave. There will be 8 Demi-Humans. You have to kill them all. Usually, the drop rate of string from Demi-Humans is 1/20. But in this cave, it is 1/10. It is still low but this is the only good spot to farm string. You can use Waves of Darkness Ash of War to speed up the process.

Once you kill all the demi-humans, fast travel to the nearest Site of Grace to reset and come again to farm strings.

To our knowledge, there is no merchant in the Lands Between. So no, you can’t really purchase this material so you will only have to farm it using the locations and methods described above.
