Next in the long quest to have a guide for every Sorcery in Elden Ring is the most expansive sorcery class of them all: Glintstone. Among the most commonly used class of spells in Elden Ring, Glintstone Sorceries all revolve around conjuring and often throwing, slashing, or shooting Elden Ring’s mythic Glintstones into the soldiers, beast, and monstrosities you’ll find across the Lands Between.

Before diving into the deep well of Glintstone Sorceries, it’s worth noting that several of the heftier Glintstone Sorceries require finding the Academy and Conspectus Scrolls and hand them over to Sorceress Sellen. She can be found in West Limgrave in the Waypoint Ruins. All of the Glintstone Sorceries can also be boosted by Azur’s Glintstone Staff, Lusat’s Glintstone Staff, and the Digger’s Staff which specifically boosts both the Rock Blaster and Shatter Earth sorceries. Lastly, all Glintstone sorceries scale off of Intelligence.
