      The statue with 3 inside it at consecrated snowfield is listed twice :( thought I could get six from one area

        Found 2 more in Mountaintops of the giants. One is dropped by a scarab hanging in a tree at Zamor Ruins. Starting at the grace, follow the cliff to the left until you find the tree. Second one is in the Guardian's Garrison, enter and find the ladder to the left. Smithing stone is at the end of the walkway guarded by a flame guardian.

          Note: with their availability, you can have a +20 normal weapon before the Draconic Tree Sentinel, a must-know for RL1.

            Think Yelough Anix Tunnel has been fixed. I just spend a little under 30 minutes just farming the miners (and running away from the tall blue guys) and got 9 7s, 2 8s, and 2 6s. I don't think I got that lucky :)

              The 4 from Subterranean Shunning Grounds where are the crayfish didn't stock in the inventory. Don't know what happened. Went back to the blacksmith and just found that I have only the single ss (7) I found earlier.

              Bug? Anyone else with the same problem?

                Farm at the Prayer Room SoG in Haligtree. There is an area between there and the lower room with the knights. Maybe 20 soldiers you can farm a run. Drops fairly often. You'll get 7's and 8's and the occasional 6. Its a small area so you dont have to slog thru a dungeon. This started as a Rune farm for me since they are 2500 a pop but I go here mainly for the 7's

                  I got some to drop from Imps in the Giants Mountaintops catacombs, low drop rate but there's a bunch of imps in that place.

                    Mountaintops of the Giants:
                    In Consecrated Snowfield, 1x Smithing Stone [7] found on a corpse beside a cart towards the entrance of Yelough Anix Tunnel.

                      Tried farming these in Yelough Anix Tunnel but I've only turned up [6]. Surely they haven't changed it in the latest patch...right?

                        Again. A giant clustered page of every area to find the non respawnable stones. And not one single location to actually farm them from mobs.

                            • Just edited a page for the first time... hopefully this helps a bit. Most notably: fixed some broken links, provided missing ones, and tried to give a better walkthrough to the 4x in the sewers.

                                There's also one in "Deeproot's Dephts" near the cave with a grey bear there's a wind geyser (dont know english name) to climb uppon a ruined temple where you find an Arteria plant, if you fall down the northern side on the giant steps here's it is.

                                  So there is no tunnel dungeon associated with Smithing Stone 7s? Even SS8s have a dungeon in the Consecrated Snowfield.

                                    Some of these are so vague. To get to the x4 in the shunning ground tunnels from the tunnel with the hole on top, jump down and turn around head through the doorway then continue straight and keep going until you get to another doorway with a blue scarab, enter and they are sitting in the dead end.

                                        soliders in the haligee tree also have a chance of dropping smithing stones 5-7. starting at the prayer room grace and work your way down to the 2 cleanrot knights and repeat. plus easy rune farming.

                                          The creepy hands in the Eastern Mountain Giants area all seem to drop them the first time you kill them. They didnt the 2nd time i I tried. Not sure if its a 1 time thing or if the RNG just drops low after the 1st kill. Sitting at 60 arcane for those wondering about my discovery points

                                            what guards in Haligtree drop Smith Stones 7? I got 2 to drop Level 1 Stones around the Prayer Room in the Brace.

                                            Is there another section where soldiers drop these? Can someone please specify exaction location for these to drop and which soldiers since there's a lot of similar Halig soldiers.

                                              So far the most effective farm for me (with 14 arcane and golden scarab equipped) has been in the Hligtree starting at the Prayer Room grace and clearing every single Haligree soldier around down to the first room of the 2 Cleanrot Knights. There's also a walkway the opposite way of that room with some more soldiers. They are easy to crit with the Black Knife chest and most of them die fairly easily.

                                                the upgrade path for items that require somber stones is so much linear and easier. it gets so damn old chasing down stacks of smithing stones every playthrough.

                                                • Ya the 7 n 8's are the real wall for upgrading. The game vomits sber stones at 7 n 8 and even 9. It also vomits regular ancient dragon smithing stones but it makes sure to hide sber ancient stones and these until the very last 2 areas of the game lol

                                                    Found an easy farm at "Foot of the Forge" grace in the mountain-top, right before Fire Giant. There is a small cave directly north with 3 small hands, they each have a chance to drop a stone. I did this 10 times and got 5 Somber [7]. If you want some runes too, steer Torent slightly to the bird on the west side of the route and a giant hand will crush the bird for 1k free souls. I did this with 21 arcane and no other drop boosters.

                                                      These smithing stones in particular feel like they're the cause of most somber vs regular weapon issues, because there's just not many of them before Mountaintops, meanwhile if you know where to like Somber 6, 7, and 8 are far easier to get before then.

                                                        The drop rate from the imps is very poor, farmed them with silver scarab and feet for an hour for 1 stone, the first 3 imps in the cave.

                                                            There is two of the same location listed in on the page. One lists it as the upper plateau, whilst the other uses the actual name. Which is the Moonlight altar. Not sure why the three gazebos there are listed twice. (Yes I know there's two of the three gazebos that have Smithing Stone 7s, but both of the listed locations say to check both of those gazebos.)

The statue is right at the end of the frozen river, where you can't progress further (and the lake is just ahead on the map). There's a sleeping giant on the river right by it. Easy to lead him over to break open the statue for you.
