Impenetrable Thorn Spell Location – Where to get it in Elden Ring DLC?

Impenetrable Thorn is a new and utterly broken sorcery spell introduced in the Shadow of Erdtree DLC of the Elden Ring. Like any other videogame, spells are separate items that can be used for offensive, defensive, and other utility purposes in this game aside from your main weapon.

The Impenetrable Thorns spell summons the scadutree’s impenetrable thorns from the ground for a long linear distance and does some serious damage.

1. Where to find the Impenetrable Thorn Sorcery Spell in Shadow of the Erdtrees?

The Impenetrable Thorn sorcery can be found in the Shadow Keep just before the Dark Chamber Entrance site of grace, leading to the Messmer boss fight. The sorcery is on a body on a floor below the Dark Chamber entrance.

There is a bat creature sitting down there. Defeat it and look for a dead body by the walls nearby.

2. How to use the Impenetrable Thorn Sorcery in Elden Ring DLC?

The Impenetrable Thorn sorcery can be cast using a Glintstone Staff in the Elden Ring. Furthermore, it takes one memory slot, 24 Faith stat, and costs 15 FP to cast this sorcery.

This sorcery inflicts Hemorrhage on the enemy if it hits and causes bleed build-up. The fun part of this spell is that it can be cast repeatedly with little to no delay. However, it also deals a small HP damage to the caster as well.

In the right hands, this sorcery can be absurdly devastating for the enemies of Tarnished in the Realm of the Shadows. Players out there are abusing the Impenetrable Thorns to defeat the final boss of DLC within just 30 seconds!
