One of the first significant locations you will be visiting in Elden Ring is the Raya Lucaria Academy overlooking the Lakes of Liurnia. This famous place of learning and sorcery has been sealed by a magical barrier that can only be passed by those who have a Glintstone Key. Luckily there is one nearby, but you have to get past a sizable foe. This guide will show you where to find the Glintstone Key to unlock the Academy gate in Elden Ring.
Where To Find The Glintstone Key In Elden Ring
The Glintstone Key is close to the gate and doesn’t require to do much in the way of discovery, with the game providing you with a helpful hint on where to find the key. If you run-up to the Academy Gate, you will find a corpse nearby with a note. This note provides a crudely drawn map that shows you where to find the Glintstone Key. The place you are going to want to look is to the west of the Academy down in the Lakes of Liurnia. In the area pictured below, there is a landmark that a dragon guards. If you want to try your hand at felling the great beast, you can, but the goal is to get your hand on that Glintstone Key, so it might be in your best interest to just ride Torrent in, grab the Key, and get out. With that, you will have your hand on one of the Glintstone Keys in Elden Ring.
Once you find the Glintstone Key, return to the gate that leads to the Arya Ramya Academy entrance, and you will be able to walk through it by interacting with it. This leads you to the second Legacy Dungeon, which contains two bosses, with the second providing you with a Great Rune when defeated.
