Want to know where you can get Smithing Stones 3 in Elden Ring?
Smithing Stones in Elden Ring are used to upgrade weapons. While the game allows players to level up their characters at any Site of Grace, it also pays to make your weapons stronger as you advance the storyline.
Given the brutal gameplay of Elden Ring and the tough areas in The Lands Between, having a powerful weapon will make boss fights more manageable.
Although you have the freedom to choose how you tackle fights, it will be much harder to defeat major bosses in Elden Ring if you are using a subpar weapon.
Smithing Stones and Somber Smithing Stones come in a wide array of varieties for different levels. The rarest Smithing Stones are the Ancient Dragon Stones and their Somber counterparts.
Luckily, you only need to find one Ancient Dragon Smithing Stone to max out your weapon’s potential.
In this guide, we’ll show you where to find Smithing Stones 3 in Elden Ring.
Let’s dive right in!
Smithing Stones 3 Locations
Tier 3 Smithing Stones in Elden Ring can be used to reinforce weapons up to +9 with the help of a Blacksmith. Although +9 weapons are great for dealing with tough enemies, you still have a long way to go before they are maxed out.
Unfortunately, there are no Tier 3 Smithing Stones in West Limgrave. This means that you’ll have to venture out of the area to get some.
While you can just follow the game’s storyline and explore beyond Limgrave to get Smithing Stones 3, they commonly appear around the Raya Lucaria Academy. This area is just north of the Stormveil Castle.
Here are some locations where you can find Tier 3 Smithing Stones:
- Stormveil Castle – after traversing around the rocky path on the side of the castle, you’ll eventually reach an area that is covered in trees and shrubs. Warhawks also spawn in this area, and one of them is picking at a body that holds a Smithing Stone 3. Kill the Warhawks to collect the stone safely.
- Laskyar Ruins – you can find another Tier 3 Smithing Stone in these ruins in the forest north of the Stormveil Caste.
- Raya Lucaria Academy – another Tier 3 Smithing Stone is waiting for you to collect on a corpse in the plaza between the academy and the nearby ruins of the Academy Gate Town.
- Raya Lucaria Crystal Tunnel – in the northeast of Raya Lucaria Academy, you’ll find the Crystal Tunnels that contain several Tier 3 Smithing Stones.
