If you’re considering sorcery in Elden Ring, it’s important to know which Glintstone Staves are available to you. This game is full of specialized staves that highly buff a specific school of magic. The Staff of Loss in Elden Ring is one of those specialized tools. However, like the name implies, this staff is actually quite hidden. Thankfully, it is far from difficult to find! Let’s go grab it together.
How to Get the Staff of Loss in Elden Ring
In order to get the Staff of Loss in Elden Ring, you will have to go to Sellia, Town of Sorcery. Head to the northern part of town, up a staircase, and climb on the western root. Hanging off of the side of a balcony to the west is a corpse with the staff on it. This glintstone staff is designed to improve “invisibility spells,” an exceptionally small subsection of spells in the sorcery school.
Sellia is in the lower half of Caelid, adjacent to the large pool of rot that sits in the center of the region, somewhat close to the Meteorite Staff. The city is crawling with invisible ghosts of sorcerers and mages, making it a bit dangerous for low-vigor characters. So, be careful if you go through the town early.
The staff itself is unprotected, so you can rush it as soon as you’d like. Simply climb on the western tree branch from the raised part of the town, and then you’ll see the corpse on the white balcony.
But, the staff is tricky to use at its maximum potential. That’s because there are only two spells that make use of its large damage increase; Night Shard and Night Comet. Night Shard is purchased from the wizard Gowry after the Millicent questline is largely compete. Night Comet can be found by unlocking parts of Sellia, which requires igniting the torches in the clock towers of the town.
There are other “invisibility” spells, including Unseen Blade and Unseen Form, but the staff does not improve their damage. They don’t deal damage, after all! However, the 30% damage bonus stacks with itself, meaning wielding two staves of Loss will improve your damage by nearly 170%.
