Azur's Glintstone Staff is a Glintstone Staff in Elden Ring. Azur's Glintstone Staff scales primarily with Intelligence and is a good Weapon for spellcasters that rely on their magic attacks.

Staff of the primeval glintstone sorcerer Azur.
Only those who have glimpsed what lies beyond the wisdom of stone may wield it.

Reduces casting time of all sorceries, but consumes additional FP.

 

Where to Find Azur's Glintstone Staff in Elden Ring

Azur's Glintstone Staff can be found at the following location:

  • Location: Raya Lucaria Academy [Elden Ring Map here]
  • Assuming you have unlocked all the shortcuts, specifically the ladder on the second floor of the Church of the Cuckoo site, fast travel to the said site and climb up the ladder. Be alert here since the upper level is guarded by a Glintstone Sorcerer and two Lazuli Sorcerers. Head towards the east side and you'll see an arch doorway at the end.
  • Defeat the High Page guarding the entrance on the other side of the runway, you'll find the weapon on the ground, next to the crystal formation with the inactive School of Graven Mages in it at the center of the room.

Elden Ring Azur's Glintstone Staff Notes & Tips

  • Weapon Skill: No Skill
  • This weapon cannot be infused with Ashes of War nor enchanted with Magic.
  • Azur's Glintstone Staff can be upgraded by using Somber Smithing Stones
  • Gives 40 virtual dexterity towards sorceries and incantations, making it slightly more effective than the Radagon Icon. Casting speed is capped at 70 dexterity.
  • Increases casting speed of sorceries and incantations by 10%. However, each spell and incantation is affected by casting-speed increases by a different amount due to differences in casting animations, so roughly 8-9% is a better estimate on average.
  • Increases FP cost of only sorceries by 20%, rounded down.
  • The increased casting speed does not work for Dragon Communion Incantations and Scarlet Rot.
  • Bonus casting speed applies to spells cast from staves or seals in the other hand. Does not require attribute requirements to be met in order for the bonus to apply.
  • In PvP, being able to attack before your opponent does is a big advantage. This staff helps caster builds be faster and compete with very fast melee weapons.
  • In PvE, a shorter cast time will make you able to take on faster, deadlier enemies who might've interrupted your big damage spells otherwise, although in the long run it might make your spells less FP efficent.
  • While Azur's Staff does not provide any specific advantages for his personal school of spells (Glintstone Cometshard, Comet, and Comet Azur), most of those spells are high damage, single projectile spells, and it would be easier to maximize DPS by increasing the total number of spells cast (by increasing cast speed) than by simply increasing raw damage of each individual cast (See also, Lusat's Glintstone Staff)
    • Comet Azur is a bit of an outlier to this assessment, but due to the spells absurd damage output, the biggest limiting factor is whether or not you can complete the initial cast, and not the damage output of the spell itself, and therefore still benefits from this staff's increased casting speed
    • Wearing Azur's Glintstone Crown will even further enhance this small niche of glintstone sorceries

Requires regular reinforcement with Somber Smithing Stones.

Sorcery Scaling is based on Int stat. The Int of the the character with the staff equipped at the time of posting the Sor Scaling is located in the (Int) to the right of the scaling amount. This will help to give a general idea of what staves are better at various Int levels until MAX is achieved.

This upgrade can be enchanted with Magic or boosted with Consumables. The Sorcery Scaling displayed on this table shows Minimum Requirement and Intelligence 80 as xx-yy.

      Is it 40 virtual dexterity in addition to a 10% cast speed buff? Or is it just that 40 virtual dex happens to be a 10% buff? Additional clarification would be nice.

        Dumb question but does the increased FP cost apply to when you cast with this staff or just if you have it equipped?

        • Anonymous

          It should not buff incantations... Radagon Icon + This = Ugh. Have you seen Rock Sling with super speed? Near instant Wrath of Gold? It just breaks many things...

              does the location of this staff imply someone who wasn't powerful enough tried to wield this staff and got turned into a school of graven mages? if so [spoiler!] that would also probably explain why sellen got turned into one while working on Azur's and Lusat's remains, her body or mind couldn't handle whatever she discovered there and she mutated into this form

                To make it clear for those who don't know:

                -This staff reduces the "preparation" time of a spell's total cast time. Not the speed of the spell itself (same thing applies to Radagon Icon, which stacks with this staff).
                -This staff affects all types of spells, both Sorceries and Incantations.
                -This staff only increases the cost of Sorceries.
                -You only need to have it out on one of your hands in order to gain these effects, and you don't need to meet the requirements of the staff for them to take place (ex.: Lusat's on right hand, this staff in the left hand. In this scenario, casting with Lusat's will still benefit from the cast speed increase and additional spell cost).

                In PvP, being able to attack before your opponent does is a big advantage. This staff helps caster builds be faster and compete with very fast melee weapons.
                In PvE, having that shorter cast time will make you able to take on faster, deadlier enemies who might've interrupted your big damage spellcast before (although in the long run it might make your spells less FP efficent).

                • Anyone have any idea why this staff was decided to not be compatible with ashes of war? I feel like the 2 accessibly best staffs in the game so far (this and meteorite) both are locked out of ashes of war seemingly for no reason at all. Its a good thing i dont want an ash of war on my meteorite staff, but i want the spinning weapon ash of war on the azurs :(

                    i made some test and confirmed that the off-hand azur staff buff stack with the radagon icon one (if you are wondering i proved it with a character with 12 DEX and both buffs equipped and using night shard the spell is so fast the it doesn't actually make the first sound that every spell make when the simbol from the staff is created, this does not happen if you remove one of the two item so they must work in combo)

                      you can get azur helper and then use both lusat and azur staves with the potion that reduces all fp costs to 0 for the ultimate comet azur dmg (there are other talismans that further make it insane)
                      can do 20k dmg before the buff runs out most of the time if the enemy doesnt rush you

                        If you want to dual wield this with another staff for the cast speed, note that it's better to cast with azur and off hand a buffing staff (for example carian glintstone staff to buff sword sorceries) than casting with lusat's staff and off handing azur's for the cast speed increase. The damage should be basically the same by my calculations but the latter option will obviously drain your FP way faster.

                            This DOES increase FP cost slightly from main hand compared to if you had nothing/different staff (tested with by comparing screenshots). And it seems to take around 20% extra FP (which has already been noted)

                              This staff also works well with pure Faith users if you're not using dual seals. You don't need to meet the requirements for the spellcasting speed benefits. Radagon's icon and this staff make things like bestial sling an instant cast. Dragon spells also don't have that annoying millisecond delay before they roar. Wrath of gold and black flame ritual cast much faster with both equipped. More useful in PvP than PvE but still very good in both scenarios

                                You don't have to use this staff, just keep it in your offhand, you get the cast time buff (and the increased FP consumption) while casting with another staff.

                                  For those who havent unlocked the shortcut start at the debate parlor site of grace and go north through the gate and then head up the destroyed stairs to the northwest. Then up the stairs to the two sorcerers and hop the railing to the left. Go around the corner and hop the railing over the corpse to a lower roof. Follow the roof southwest past two marionette soldiers and up a ladder. Follow the walkway west past a sorcerer and three flying davinci midgets. Go around the towers right side and jump to another lower roof. Then north down 2 more levels and west down two levels to a marionette on your right. Drop East next to that marionette. Then head north til you see a curving roof with patrolling marionettes and jump down to it. Drop down the wooden platforms to the east. Go southwest around the platforms and admire the shiny crab. Once youre done head north and through a doorway to the west immediately going north once inside til you see another doorway east. Go down the walkway, fight the page, walk forward and claim your reward.

                                    Did anyone tested if the passive abilities of this staff on offhand increase the FP cost and casting speed of incantions on main hand?

                                      Not that it’s terribly worth it but I just tested and it you have one of these in each hand the passive DOES noticeably stack. That said even with fast casting the double FP cost increase makes it not really worth it.

                                        I was doing some testing earlier on how this works when chaining multiple casts of a spell, and with 20 Dex if you're using Azur's Glintstone Staff and casting Adula's Moonblade you can attack fast enough for the damage to chain (it'll add each hit's damage total to the previous).

                                        HOWEVER, if you're using the Talisman to give yourself +5 Dex AND the Radagon Icon with another staff — it's still slower and the damage values will all show individually and clear away before the next hit.

                                        It's a TINY window of difference, but in Crumbling Farum Azula it's enough for Azur's Staff to be able to get swings in with Adula's Moonblade to interrupt attacks from the Beastmen & Banished Knights that would hit you otherwise and trade damage with the other combination.

                                        Currently I'm using the Primal Glintblade Talisman, because it actually offsets the increased FP cost of Azur's Staff so that your spells still have a reduction in base their cost. The 15% reduction to HP from that Talisman is offset by the fact that this allows you to be more aggressive and use FP fast enough to avoid getting hit in a lot of scenarios.

                                        I'm curious if anyone knows what the Dex value is where that speed finally gets evened out. Because you can tell by the damage chaining with Adula's Moonblade, it SHOULD be pretty easy to test for. Since this is my main build at the moment, I'll try and post an update if I ever hit a Dex score where those values even out and make Radagon's Icon equivalent to this, since that would mean the ability to swap to a staff that can do a little bit more damage.

                                          So, all staffs with a PASSIVE ability cause that ability to be active if they're in your offhand. Ex: anything that Boosts a certain type of sorcery will provide that boost regardless of whether or not that staff is the one used to cast it. Just so long as it is currently being held.

                                          This also causes the extra cost from Azur's & Lusat's staff to boost the cost of spells even if they're just being held… BUT — there is a key difference.

                                          Azur's boost to cast times will apply to any other staff you have along with the FP cost if it is in your offhand. That's because cast times being impacted by Dex likely means that this calculation is applied like a direct stat to the character. In contrast, Lusat's staff will COST extra — but it will do NO EXTRA DAMAGE unless it is the one used to cast the spell. This is probably because the Sorcery scaling and attack stats being weapon-specific for the damage calculation will vary from staff to staff, rather than being a character-specific buff.

                                          This means that if you only need a boost to casting speed at certain times, you can just pop Azur's staff into your offhand, and ONLY incur it's extra cost to FP, while also getting the better damage from something like the Regal or Lusat's staff.

                                          I've been using this with Azur's in my main hand, and then having something like the Glintblade Staff in my offhand, since it'll give it's passive damage boost when I don't need to use the Jellyfish Shield for a bigger temp boost that has an FP cost.

                                            Its a shame such a cool looking staff is seemingly not that good compared to the others. I really liked the idea of having both the primeval staves in hand but the fp consumption doesnt seem worth it. If you want a buff to your casting speed just use Radagons Icon.

                                                  I equipped this on my off hand and used a seal on my main hand

                                                  And yes it does increase the cast speed of incantations without increasing the fp cost

                                                  And it does stack with radagon icon talisman

                                                    Can confirm that using the staff in offhand gives increased casting speed and higher FP cost even though you cast with main hand.

                                                        So this staff increases fp cost by over 20% with a little over 10% cast time decrease and no specific spell buffs. Looks like Carian Regal is for sure the way to go.

Maybe i will do some more tests in the future, cause the small difference with the talisman kinda got me hooked. Or maybe im too tired right now and my timing sucks that bad. who knows.

                                                                    If you wield this in the opposite hand as another staff you will still gain the casting speed effect while using the other. This applies to all staves like Lusats and the various school specific ones. So if you want to maximize damage of a particular spell, cast with the highest sorcery scaling staff you have and offhand the buff you want. This also means you can make spells cost an absurd amount of FP by using this and Lusat's staff together.

                                                                    • Anonymous

                                                                      This staff doesn't go up to +25? But +10 yes? I'm thinking since it uses Somber Smithing Stones instead of regular Smithing Stones.

                                                                      • Anonymous

                                                                        if anybody wants an idea of general cast times with this staff, the azur's glinstone staff will fire a rock sling in about 1.80 seconds, a meteorite staff will cast rock sling in about 2.18 seconds

                                                                        • Anonymous

                                                                          Not a great one. The sorc scaling is lower than other Staves and it requires somber stones as a unique wep. This is going to make it cap out at +10 instead of +20. I'm betting Academy glintsone is way better, especially with the 168 sorc scaling and ability to +20 with Ashes

                                                                          • Anonymous

                                                                            I think the carian regal scepter is better. The cast speed difference isn’t noticeable with this staff and it has the FP penalty. Carian also has better spell damage (tested at 60 INT). So basically with this staff you are spending more fp, doing less damage for maybe a few less milliseconds of cast time

                                                                            • Anonymous

                                                                              • Anonymous
