Elden Ring Guide: How to Get and Use Lightning Spear & Rock Sling Spells

Looking to add some magic to your Elden Ring arsenal? This guide will show you how to acquire two powerful spells: Lightning Spear and Rock Sling.

How to Get Lightning Spear in Elden Ring

The path to Lightning Spear begins with the Dragon Cult Prayerbook. To claim this treasure, you must vanquish a formidable foe: a golden Leyndell Knight patrolling south of the Artist’s Shack Site of Grace.

This knight follows a predictable route down the road. A well-timed backstab can give you a significant advantage. Alternatively, maintain distance and exploit openings to wear down the knight’s defenses. Upon defeat, the knight relinquishes the coveted Dragon Cult Prayerbook.

With the Dragon Cult Prayerbook in your possession, seek out an Incantation merchant. Brother Corhyn or Miriel, Pastor of Vows, are both happy to barter their knowledge. Present them with the Prayerbook, and for a suitable price, they will teach you the ways of Lightning Spear.

How to Use

To unleash the fury of Lightning Spear, you’ll need 17 Faith and 18 FP. This Incantation scales with Faith, so invest in this attribute to maximize its damage. When cast, your character charges a bolt of lightning before hurling it towards your enemy. A charged Lightning Spear can even inflict collateral damage on nearby foes.

To further enhance the power of Lightning Spear, consider equipping the Gravel Stone Seal. This talisman bolsters the damage of Incantations by 15%. Additionally, the Godfrey Icon Talisman amplifies the potency of charged attacks, including Lightning Spear, by 15%.

How to Get Rock Sling in Elden Ring

Rock Sling is hidden within a chest in Caelid, specifically in an underground cellar beneath the Street of Sages Ruins. Head northeast from the Sellia Crystal Tunnel Site of Grace and venture deeper into central Caelid to find the ruins.

This location resides within the swampy Aeonia, notorious for its Scarlet Rot affliction. To counter this, consider equipping items like Preserving Boluses to bolster your resistance against the rot. Since the ruins are crawling with enemies, a swift strategy is key. You can potentially sprint past them, grab the Rock Sling from the chest, and escape on your trusty steed, Torrent.

How to Use

To unleash Rock Sling’s might, you’ll need at least 18 Intelligence and a Glinstone Staff. The spell conjures three boulders from the ground, hurling them towards your target. While it has a slight casting time, the spell compensates with exceptional range and physical damage. Bonus points – you can even use it while mounted on Torrent!

For maximum impact, pair Rock Sling with the Meteorite Staff. This staff, considered one of the game’s best, enhances the spell’s power by a whopping 30%. To extend Rock Sling’s reach even further, equip the Arrow’s Reach Talisman.

With these spells in your repertoire, you’ll be a magical force to be reckoned with in Elden Ring!
