Staffs in Elden Ring are powerful tools that players can utilize to cast spells and other types of sorceries. While players can also use the primary Staff that comes along with the Prisoner or Astrologer Elden Ring classes, a few Staffs buried throughout the open-world game are too potent to miss out on.
These mighty magical objects can multiply the strength of your Elden Ring incantations to exceptionally high levels so that you can destroy even the strongest Elden Ring enemies in a single blow.
Many Elden Ring Staffs can decrease the casting time of the superior level spells. However, players can also utilize Elden Ring Spirit Ashes to keep their opponents at bay while firing magic at them.
You can find every Staff in Elden Ring buried in various locations, purchase them from merchants, or retrieve them by killing enemies. They’re a bit difficult to get your hands on because searching for them will require you to jump across dangerous gaps.
Here’s a guide to help you find all the Staffs in Elden Ring!
1Staff – Academy Glintstone Staff
Players can find the Academy Glintstone Staff on Thop’s dead body. Nevertheless, you’ll have to kill him or complete his Elden Ring sidequest to obtain it.
2Staff – Albinauric Staff
Upon reaching the Guest Hall Grace Site in the Volcano Manor region of Mt. Gelmir, head left and climb up the staircases nearby. Then, progress outside and go up the ladder towards the left. You’ll obtain the Albinauric Staff after entering a room containing an Omenkiller.

7Staff – Carian Regal Scepter Staff
In order to get the Carian Regal Scepter Staff, you need to unlock the Remembrance of the Full Moon Queen. Players can unlock it by defeating Rennala, the Full Moon Queen, in Raya Lucaria Academy.
Lastly, you’ll have to hand it over to Enia at the Roundtable Hold, and voila! The Carian Regal Scepter Staff will be yours.
