      It's still possible to get these from Sellia Tunnel, but my god are they few and far between. I had 10 Somber 4s by the time I got 1 Somber 3. Best of luck to anyone grinding for them.

        Playing patch 1.06 on PC, I can confirm they do indeed drop from miners in sellia crystal tunnel. Got all geared up to farm, and it dropped from the first miner I killed

          I can confirm they drop from the miners that are where you get teleported from the ruins. I just got the stone after 3 tries

            I'm not sure why, but out of all somber stones I'm always out of these ones while I have 5 of each other ones

              After 30 minutes of farming the Battlemage outside of Sellia Hideaway, I got 2 Stone Clubs and a Somber 4. No somber 3 for me.

                For anyone trying to farm Miners in Selia Crystal Tunnel for the SSS3, I have farmed 80k souls worth and found 2 SSS4s. It seems they where changed to drop 4s instead to prevent you from getting a 3+ weapon before Liurnia

                  Can confirm that sellia crystal mine little miners drop somber 3 stones, it's a very rare drop... farmed for 1h at least

                    Ive got several +1,+2+4,+5,+8,+9. But i haven't found any +3,+6,+7. Ive only been playing for 35hrs and I've covered all of the south area, ive finished everything i the starter area, east side "Caelid"? Ive finished majority of it. But im guessing the +3 are more north?

                      In Limgrave you can easily get 2 SS1 and 2 SS2 but SS3 don't seem to exist in Limgrave or Caelid as loot.
                      Farming crystal miners looks like the only way you can get them "early" if you don't want to journey to Liurnia.

                      You also get 2 SS4 within the Sellia Crystal Mine so perhaps that another enticement to do some farming, being able to get 2 +4 Sombre weapons.

                          Liurnia of lakes is earliest place to get lvl 3 somber stones.
                          Interactive map is wrong on all accounts of a lvl 3 in Caelid, personally confirmed, don’t waste your time.

                            I have found two wrong markings on the map

                            The golden scarab east of the Gael Tunnel(Site of grace) drops a +4 not a +3
                            The golden scarab south in Caelid by the Caelid catacombs(Site of grace) Drops a +4 not a +3

                              Found one in Raya Lucaria Crystal Tunnel, on the final lift before the boss, jump onto the ledge as the lift is going down.

                                It was the big Miner with extra health about half way through Sellia Crystal Tunnels that dropped this for me, as far as i can tell the little miners only drop Crystal Scraps.

                                  Raya Lucaria Crystal Tunnel: 1) Rare drop from miners. 2) Corpse on a platform before second elevator (Walk on the log, then jump on the platforms)

                                      Is it possible that drop rates are affected by story progression? I farmed the miners at sellia tunnels for many hours not getting anything. I went back every now and again, not wanting to lose hope. after i unlocked the grace at liurnia, i went and farmed and got 2 somber [3] and 2 somber [4] after killing just 20 miners.
                                      It might be that some items are unlocked as the story moves forward/more sites of grace unlocked so as not to overpower the player early

                                        I can also confirm that the miners in Sellia Crystal Tunnels do indeed drop Somber Smithing Stone 3. I farmed over 20,000 runes before getting one so it's exceedingly rare unfortunately.

                                          Took about 1 hour farming the miners at Sellia Crystal Tunnel to get (2) SSS3.

                                          The shrimps can be annoying, what worked for me is running up to them first and 2-shotting them with moonveil, leaving the rest of the miners easy to pick off.

                                            Here’s my ultimate guide to getting SSS3 off the miners.

                                            A. You reach the cave and explore every inch of it. You will find a few sss4 and sss5.

                                            B. Reach the Grace point. Keep heading down until you find and can escape if you wish (go outside, the stupid cave won’t let you warp inside.)

                                            C. Go up and kill 2 of the miners headed left. Be fast, as you don’t want the bug to rain dart hell upon you.

                                            D. Kill that ****ing bug atop the shack. Kill the next 3 miners on the way up.

                                            E. DO NOT GO FURTHER. You have already killed 5 miners to 1 centipede. Fighting the 2nd bug for the 6th miner guts your ratio almost in half, and adds to the clock, as well as doubling your bug misery. Go and reset.

                                            F. **** Special Weapon +3, you now have Special Weapon +5. Go get the Elden Ring.

                                              After you complete the necklace part of the quest, she shows up at Lux ruins and if you talk to her there you can teleport directly into the Volcano Manor

                                                  I've been needing one for about 10h now and even got a 4 already.

                                                    Found in raya lucaria crystal tunnel. Turn right in cavern immediately after grace. Open golden chest. Jump on chest lid then up onto ledge. Behind statue.

                                                        This is incorrect. The shard found here is Somber Smithing Stone [4]

                                                          i dont think the miners from the crystal tunnels drop this i even used item discovery boosters and could not get one.

                                                            Has anyone had luck with the Miners in Sellia Crystal Tunnels? It seems like that would be by far the earliest way to get the somber smithing stone 3 with the early chest warp. Plus there are a bunch of stone 4's there.
