Elden Ring Glintstone Stars Guide

  • Glintstone Sorcery
  • Stamina Cost: 21
  • Deals magic damage
  • Damage can be boosted by 10% by wearing Lusat's Glintstone Crown. This comes at the cost of a 15% increase in ALL sorcery costs
  • Glintstone Stars, like many other multi-projectile spells, suffers in damage output in the early/mid game, due to the way absorption and defenses work. The higher level and scaling you reach, the better results you will get out of this spell
  • Glintstone Stars has extremely good tracking, even at long ranges. In addition, there is a slight delay between the cast time and when the projectiles begin moving.
    • This makes Glintstone Stars excellent against enemies that typically dodge spells, like NPC phantoms
    • The good tracking also makes it an excellent choice in mounted combat, allowing you hit fast moving targets
  • Effectively a lower-cost version of Star Shower.  Star Shower fires more projectiles, but the projectiles themselves behave identically

      Unfortunately, Glintstone Stars is one of the few spells where its usefulness is only during early-game and is quickly outclassed by its upgraded version, Star Shower. Glintstone Pebble is still very useful even if Great Glintstone Shard outclasses it. Same can be said with Crystal Barrage and Crystal Torrent. But Glintstone Stars? Nope. It does less damage than Pebble uncharged and charging it takes too long that it would be a dps loss comparing to Pebble. Thus, Glintstone Stars only purpose is to track down agile enemies early-game until you get Star Shower and later, Stars of Ruin.

        I’ve found that this spell has pretty good stagger potential when fully charged, being capable of dropping a troll with 5 fully charged casts.

          good pvp spell - hard to fully dodge and does decent enough damage . try pairing with shard spiral or magic glintblade

          • Anonymous

            Kinda the spell for Godfrey's icon talisman usage, otherwise the pebble spam or the sword sigil spam is better due to lower fp cost and faster animation

              People say this is good against npc invaders and enemies that dodge a lot, but rock sling is a much better choice, most enemies will dodge when you cast, since rock sling takes a bit of time the enemy will have finished dodging by the time the spell reaches them, the damage is a lot higher and it also has some decent tracking, the only downside is that it's a little bit harder to get in comparison but totally worth it

                It's true the FP efficiency is bad, going by raw stats, but efficiency also depends on circumstance -- all spells have 0 efficiency if they can't hit! The tracking on this is *amazing* compared to glintstone pebble. At lvl 21 I used it to beat Bloodhound Knight Darriwil, who is super dodgy! Pebble wouldn't have been any good in that fight.

                  Ok, to put it simply: it cost more, does less damage, and has a slower cast time than glintstone pebble. While it does have light tracking this spell really isn't worth the FP. People have made the argument that for npc invaders the light tracking is helpful but you are better off using phalanx or another spell. In short, this needs to either do more damage or have its FP cost halved to be worth it in most scenarios.

                    This spell does less damage than pebble for me, even fully charged (I have about 45 int) but it costs more fp and is slower to shot.

                      Great early game spell to have on hand for PVP or really dodgy enemies and it has better fp efficiency than its 6 star counterpart. Inferior to the 12 star version (as it should be) so definitely swap it out when you get it.

                      • Anonymous

                        CHARGE this spell to make it to more than pebble

                        Used for killing dodge rolling invader NPCs / other dodgy npcs early game

                        Upgrade to the 6 star / 12 star version later -- this spell is worth it when used on dodgy targets & invaders!

                          Not gonna lie, I thought this spell was useless, but some enemies and bosses read your inputs and dodge when you're casting a spell. This spell tracks them after their dodge and they usually dodge early. Also it catches enemies that move very quickly. It won't out damage Pebble but against some enemies it's more efficient to cast this and be sure they will hit than cast Pebble and have it miss and waste fp. It is situational, but it is more useful than I thought

                            Trash spell unfortunately, inferior in every way to Pebble other than tracking, which is worthless since the few enemies that can actually dodge pebble will dodge this aswell anyway.

                              i buy and memorize Glintstone Pebble in grace but i dont know how to use it.....please help me....i cant use it with samourai class ???

                              • Whoever came up with the sorcery ranking is tripping. Best by far is the Swift Glintstone, it's fast, MP light and deals just a tiny bit less damage than regular pebble. Only real downside to Swift Pebble is the range.

                                Second best sorcery has to be Rock Sling, as it literally breaks poise of most enemies in game in about 3-5 casts.

                                  If the FP cost was half of what it is, this would be a fantastic spell.

                                  But even with the tracking... I dont know. It's slower to cast, does less damage, costs more.... You're better off just timing your Glintstone Pebble a bit better.

                                    This spell, along with Night Shard and Night Maiden's Mist, are available for purchase from Gowry after completing his quest near Sellia in Caelid.

                                        The most useless spell I've ever encountered in any souls game. Even if all 3 connect, it does less damage than pebble, takes longer to cast than pebble, and is twice as expensive. wtf? It should do 30% more damage than pebble if all 3 connect, bare minimum,

                                          Weird mixed info from people. Cost twice as much as pebble, casts slower AND needs to be charged to do maybe 50% more damage if all 3 hit? homing ability is much better so will hit enemies who slightly walk to the side or up/down compared to pebble, but less spammable and more mana hungry. Not worth carrying regularly but if you're up against a monster/boss and pebble is wiffing slightly because they walk back and forth lazily, this is an option to swap it to.

                                            This will never out DPS pebble or dagger, but maybe it can be more efficient per FP IF:

                                            Can't be too close to the enemy, the arcs are so wide 2/3 of the projectiles miss at close medium range
                                            Need to fully charge the spell - even fully charged if all 3 projectiles hit it barely does more damage than dagger / pebble
                                            Hope the enemy doesn't move because of the early spells it has the lowest accuracy, weakest tracking, and slowest projectile speed.

                                            They should triple the FP cost and multiply the damage by 2.5 in order for it fit a burst niche of the early game spells. Right now it might be good for pure backline in co-op or cheesing but the work you need to put in to beat pebble or dagger by maybe 10% damage per FP makes this spell complete trash and a total waste.

                                              Garbage?? It looks like it would be so better than glintstone pebble but on average does 20 to 30 less damage while charged? 22 int w/ +2 astrologer staff.

                                                This spell’s tracking is insane! 1 or 2 out of the 3 will connect 90% of the time regardless of rolling, this is gonna be sorcerers bread and butter
