      Yeah people are undervaluing the sealed tunnel miners, literally pull all 6 and use one redmane flame art to wipe out all 6 with 1 shot
      very first room next to grace

      • Anonymous

        Miners walking around in sealed tunnel drop them. Average 1 per run of the miners. Don't have to go past the 2nd hidden wall, run in, kill the 6 miners and 1 imp under the stairs, head to grace and reset

        • Anonymous

          Do not farm the Leyndell soldiers, the chance is almost 0, i killed dozens and did not get any. Sealed tunnel mine has some, the miners drop maybe 1/20 chance.

            There is one in the shack at the entrance to ruin-strewn precipice and also one more where you need to jump off onto the ledge during the first elevator you come across.

              Yura gives you one if you talk to him in the Academy of Raya Lucaria, after helping him kill Ravenmount Assassin.

                It is handy knowing where to find the stones, but including some farming spots would be good as well. I only learned about the miners in sealed tunnel from the comments, not the page itself.

                  big thank you to everyone who recommended farming for no.5 stones by killing the miners in the first area after the grace in sealed tunnel. I was starting to get concerned From Software had messed around with the miner's drop in one of the patches, its not exactly unheard of. I was only getting poison stones and pick axes. then it was as if RNGesus had flipped a switch, I started getting at least one on every run. I'm still getting the pick axes but I can easily sell them.

                    Someone mentions the blue spirit imps that spawn around mirage rise dropping these, do they keep on spawning if you have solved the tower's puzzle and got the rewards? someone else mentions a statue in caelid as well, I assume this is a statue you have to try and bait a strong enemy into breaking before you can loot the smithing stones. Is the statue near a shallow lake in dragonbarrow with two unnamed dragons?

                      Doubting this is still the case in 1.05. So far, they just drop 3's and the mad pumpkin head drops 4's.

                        Some comments mention these dropping from the golems, but as far as I can remember I don't think I ever got a smithing stone from a single one of them, and I've killed a lot of these enemies. I used them as practise early game to get a feeling for rolling through or away from attacks by large and powerful enemies that could kill me in one hit, learning to stay alive long enough to slowly but surely whittle big health bars down to nothing, and for learning to not panic, to stay calm and not make stupid mistakes that would allow them to do for me in one hit. The point is I've been killing golems from limgrave to altus plateau and like I said, don't remember ever getting a smithing stone, I've had a lot of halberds and greatbows drop but that's all. So what sort of discovery rate does it take for golems to drop smithing stones?

                        • Anonymous

                          At the very least, list where you can find them chronologically. Going from Raya Lucaria to Altus Plateau is just strange.

                            One nice and fast way I found is to get a fire spell or a ranged weapon with some fire projectile, and run down the tunnel from the grace and throw fire at the barrels in the small shack with a miner that can drop smithing stone 5.

                                  Easily farmable from the miners in the sealed tunnel. Just kill the first few (in the room with the miners bell bearing 2 chest) and run back to the grace.

                                    Dropped by the blue imps around Mirage Rise. They respawn for a bit and then stop. Idk if they start respawning again somehow.

                                      Anybody wishing to farm these, with 9 luck and no buffs i frequently found smithing stones 4,5, and 6 from the mausoleum knights in Deeproot Depths. However if the mausoleum is brought down the knights will no longer spawn.

                                        Hey, for those interested, since the 1.03, the smithing stones drops are largely better. So for the Smithing Stones (5), you can farm it in the first area of the Sealed Tunnel, in Atlus Plateau, south from Leyndell. Just grab a chicken wing or even a pure arcane build (for luck) and farm the 5 diggers in the first room and rest at the site of grace. Rince and repeat. I sometimes get 2 in a run. And yes I know you can buy them matter but... Yup.

                                          The soldiers all along the roads in atlas plateau seem to drop mostly 5's with variation of lower ones as well. I just rode north by where brother Cohwlan (sp) moves when he leaves round table.

                                              You can farm for these in Sealed Tunnel in Altus Plateau because of the patch. with a silver scarab that a co-op friend gave me, it was about 1 in every 4 runs that i was getting a stone (5).

About 20 soldiers in the nearby fortification and none of them even look up from what they're doing so you can rice around on Torrent and farm to your hearts content. Seem to be roughly 15% chance of Smithing Stone 1, 10% chance of Smithing Stone 4, and around a 5% chance of Smithing Stone 5.

The item is a bit further from there, you gotta sneak past bunch of Zamor warriors and get into the basement, it will be in a chest, behind the door.
