The Rock Sling is a Gravity Sorcery Spell in Elden Ring that pairs perfectly with the Meteorite Staff, one of the best early to mid-game mage weapons. Casting Rock Sling summons three large boulders from the ground and hurls the stones at an enemy target. This Spell’s damage and range outperform the Glintstone Pebble at the cost of a slow cast time. To use Rock Sling, spellcasters will need an Intelligence of 18, the same Stat requirement for wielding the Meteorite Staff. Furthermore, Elden Ring players can find the Rock Sling within the same location as the staff, the Street of Sages Ruins.
Rock Sling Spell Location in Elden Ring
The easiest way to get to the Street of Sages Ruins and acquire the Rock Sling Spell in Elden Ring is by using the teleportation trap chest within the Dragon-burnt Ruins in Limgrave’s Agheel Lake. After exiting the Sellia Crystal Tunnels, head southwest to the ruins to find the Spell in an underground crypt near the Meteorite Staff.
While Rock Sling is easy to acquire, the high-level region of the Caelid is not a safe area to travel through. Thus, it is highly recommended players do not dismount Torrent until they’ve arrived directly at the Street of Sages Ruins structure, where the underground entrance to the Sorcery is located. The Aeonia Swamp is infested with dangerous enemies and environmental hazards that inflict Scarlet Rot. As a result, make sure to only explore the surrounding area once the player has reached an adequate Level of 60 or higher.
To properly cast the Rock Sling Spell in Elden Ring, there are two things that spellcasters should keep in mind. First, after the flying boulders travel a certain distance, their velocity will dip, causing them to crash into the ground if they aren’t close enough to their target. Hence, while the range is generous for a Sorcery, mages must ensure they’re within distance of the enemy to prevent wasting FP and becoming unnecessarily vulnerable.
Second, the Spell’s projectiles will break before they launch if there isn’t enough room for their course. For example, casting Rock Sling behind a doorway will cause only one rock to be hurled while the other two crash into the doorframe or wall. Therefore, players should consider this limitation and view their surroundings before casting Rock Sling.
Elden Ring is available on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and PC.
