Gelmir Glintstone Staff is a Glintstone Staff in Elden Ring. The Gelmir Glintstone Staff scales primarily with Intelligence and Faith, with minor scaling in Strength, and is a good hybrid Intelligence/Faith Weapon for casting Magma sorceries.

 

Staff with a forked tip, embedded with red glintstones. Enhances lava sorceries.

The Man-Serpents of Mt. Gelmir draw from faith in addition to intelligence to enhance the potency of their sorcery.

 

Where to Find Gelmir Glintstone Staff

  • The Gelmir Glintstone Staff is an uncommon drop from the Man-Serpent Sorcerer in the throne room above Volcano Manor.
  • It is recommended that players use a Silver-Pickled Fowl Foot for each run up to the throne room to boost item discovery from killing enemies as well as unlock the lift leading from the Temple of Eiglay Site of Grace to the throne room. Due to the relatively low drop rate, it may take multiple runs and teleports back to the site of grace to see the staff drop.

      I wield this in my left hand at +25, with a +25 Prince of Deaths Staff in my right. That way I get the passive boost to my lava sorceries (that are Int/Faith based) while dealing more damage than I would just casting from the Gelmir Staff

      • There are a lot of misconceptions about this staff and hybrid builds in general, so I'd like to clarify them a bit.
        For starters, this is pretty much the best staff for FTH/ INT hybrid for pvp at meta levels. At 45/45 int/ fth Gelmir staff has 280 sorcery scaling, while Prince Of Death's staff has 266 scaling. POS only starts to outperform this staff at 50/50 split, which means it basically needs 10 extra levels worth of stats. POS in general, isn't really viable for pvp, since it scales similarly to quality affinity, and doesn't really get really good until insanely high levels.

        Now to get to my next point, 280 sorcery scaling might not look super impressive on paper, especially if compared to pure catalysts like Regal Scepter/ Lusats at 80 Int, but it's actually quite decent if use it for it's intended purpose, aka casting Lava sorceries. Rycard's Rancour is a solid spell, and Roiling Magma is one of the most underrated spells in the game, easily being able to do 1k + damage to players with average fire resistance on full charge, and that's before accounting for any possible damage modifiers, like Fire physick tear, flames grant me strength, Graven Mass Talisman, Golden Vow etc...

        But that's not the point. If your playing a hybrid build, you'll almost certainly want to pair it with Golden Order Seal. Every character has 10 spell slots. Since you already have relatively high faith investment, you'll almost certainly want to slot at least a couple of good buffs, because it's one of the perks of faith build. You'll also probably want at least a couple of offensive incantations, to make use of the Golden Order Seal.

        This means that you'll have 2-3 spell slots left for sorceries, and that's what you'll use this staff for. The amount of Sorcery this staff has is more than enough for that.

        On short, if your using this staff, on FTH/ INT hybrid, and then your using it to cast stuff like Swift Shard/ Carian Slicer, etc just like any other generic mage, then your obviously not gonna see impressive numbers , might as well make a separate pure int build for that.

        The whole point of making hybrid build, and using hybrid catalysts is to use hybrid spells, that pure builds can't utilize.

          Funny how something so rare for one is so common for the next. Have had quite a few of these drop but not a one magma sword. Same can be said for a few other rare and not so rare items. Envoy great horn or whatever it’s called has dropped for me numerous times. No Octo helm, blood whip, or damn magma sword tho.

          • So I understand with the sorcery scaling the prince of death's staff becomes the better choice, but is that inclusive to the magma sorceries? I plan to use a character that has just magma sorceries for the magic options, so will this staff always out perform other staffs when it comes to magma sorceries?

            • Anonymous

              It is incredibly annoying how the “best” staff is an obtuse hunk of rock and this deliciously drippy staff is so useless.

              Not gonna stop me from using it though.

                On my hybrid build I am using PoD staff but off handing this and using Magma Shot, incredibly powerful and fun

                  Genuinely feel as though this isn't meant to be used. A ridiculously rare drop from an enemy there is only one of that can hardly be farmed , fitting a barely workable niche that has an objectively superior, easier to acquire option.

                    Not sure if this is a fluke or not, but I’ve had about 5 play throughs now between two characters, and the staff has always dropped the first time I killed the man-serpent. After the first drop though, it’s been a grind to get a second staff in the same playthrough.

                      280 sorcery scaling at 45/45 int/faith at +25. I know sorcery drew the short straw when it came to hybrid catalysts, but between this and prince of death's obscene 80/80 cap (266 scaling at 45/45) is just a kick in the teeth at this point. The only other hybrid staffs are the albinauric staff (325 scaling at 45/45 int/arc), and technically staff of the guilty (305 scaling at 80 faith).

                        How's 11.11% a low drop rate? It is one of the biggest drop rates in the entire game. I farmed like 5+ weapons with 0.5% base drop rate and that was painful.

                          this isn't great staff. I have tested it with all 50 stat using with magma shot. and despite having +10% increase with magma sorceries it did less damage (!!!) than albinauric staff and prince of death staff

                            It's pretty **** because lava sorceries are a bad joke. If you want to play with magma just get the blade or whip. You will have much better damage at a much higher FP efficiency.

                              for how much it takes to get this staff and make it have good scaling, I think that the buff should be more significant. Why waste almost double the levels compared to just meeting the fth requirement and using any other staff, when the actual returns are almost negligible?

                              • Anonymous

                                While its outperformed by other Glintstone staves at higher investment, I think this staff would pair well if you plan to run Sacred Seal with Glintstone Staff run focusing on Fire Spells and Incants since you wont be investing heavily into int after reaching around 40 int, pump the rest on faith since most Fire abilities are centered on incants, the Lava Sorceries are still good enough but why miss up additional spells for fun when you can have all of them.

                                • don't remember even seeing this particular enemy wielding... i was going to use this chance to farm for another magma blade but ithe staff dropped on the first kill. It is 11.11% after all... should drop pretty consistently with high Disc

                                    don't bother with this staff even at 80 int and fth carian regal outperforms this thing, just get enough fth to cast rykards rancor and use the carian regal or lusats

                                      does dual wielding this give you a 30% boost to magma? and is magma sorc considered physical or fire damage? if its fire does flame grant me strength boost it? thank you!

                                        I feel like this would have made more sense to scale mostly with int and a bit with fth considering most magma sorcery has a higher int requirement than fth, especially rykards rancor

                                          Does this boost your magma sorceries if you hold it in your offhand and cast with a staff in your main hand similar to the staff of loss strat?

                                            Just dropped on my first kill.. I wondered why it wasn't on the Volcano Manor guide, then found out it's not guaranteed drop lol.

                                              Holy cats. I just got this to drop on only my second try, even without Silver Fowl-Foot. I just so happened to be a magic-user looking for it, too. I'm so thankful, knowing how low the drop % apparently is.

                                                my first farming run and my game crashed shortly after trying to return. Put me right in front of him again mid fight, so i fought him and it dropped!!!!

                                                  Outperforms the PoD Staff up until 45/45 in terms of scaling, which is also where it softcaps. At 45/45 this has 280 while PoD has 266. However, just to compare: the Carian Regal Scepter at 80/10 int/fth has 373. So you'll be crippling your sorcery damage if you re-distribute your points equally between int and fth. If you take the 15% lava boost into consideration, you'll still only end up at 322 for Gelmir.

                                                  Imho the lava boost should be increased to +25%, that way you'd be at 350, which is still lower than the Scepter, but in exchange you'll have access to all the lava sorceries as well as incantations.

                                                    This staff really should have A scaling in Int/Fth it’ll never be able to compete with PoD staff for split builds beyond NG+. And it’s too bad because lava sorceries are 10x better than death sorceries

                                                    It’s fun to mess around with but if you’re at 55 int and Faith you’re better off using golden order Seal and running incantations mostly

                                                          Testing with a max-upgrade Gelmir Staff, putting 5 points at a time into Int or Faith and recording the Sorcery Scaling each time, here's the caps I found:

                                                          Each point of Int/Faith adds 3.6 Sorc Scaling until Int/Faith is at 30
                                                          Each point of Int/Faith adds 1.6 Sorc Scaling between 30 and 45
                                                          Each point of Int/Faith adds 0.55 Sorc Scaling after 45

                                                          so the soft cap for this staff is 30 and the hard cap is 45. Both Int and Faith have these caps, and both contribute equally to scaling.

                                                          Note that the Rykard's Rancor spell needs 40 int, so if you want the best bang for your stats using that spell and this staff, you'd probably want to go 40 int and 30 faith

                                                                At 73/73 int/faith I get 394 scaling out of the death staff and only 311 out of this, with both at +25. Golden Order seal+10 is 379. Rather disappointing as I would have liked to have at least one option on choice of catalysts rather than being locked to just those two.
                                                                But I'm probably stacking int/faith to an arguably unreasonable degree.

                                                                    The boosting of this staff appears to be bugged. I have done numerous tests at several upgrade levels against staffs with identical Sorcery Scaling stat and it does not boost the damage of any lava sorcery. Anyone else have different results?

                                                                    • Anonymous

                                                                      This is a great staff for a Hexer build. Death Prince's Staff only ooutperforms it at very high values, you're better off sticking to 45/45 fth/int and then building up your other stats like 60 vig or 40 mind.

                                                                      • Anonymous

Follow the walkway past 2-3 more snake-men and you'll reach a room with an altar and the big snake boy you need to farm to get this staff... good luck

                                                                          Scaling seems inferior to Prince of Death staff, which is a shame. Not sure what the sorc scaling equivalent of the lava buff is, though. Perhaps it manages to edge out the Prince of Death staff with lava magic? Could still be quite good with Rykard's Rancor if that's the case.
