    • On the interactive map, the teardrop scarabs east of the gael tunnel and the cathedral of dragon communion in western/southern caelid are reporting that it drops a Somber 3, when in fact both scarabs drop Somber 4s.

        The one in Caelid is found on a corpse sitting in a chair at a cliff facing towards the Sea, it's not on the same ground level as the minor Erdtree. It's misleading description.

          Farmable Somber Smithing stone [4]:
          Altus Tunnel Minner, rarely drops Somber Smithing stone [4] and Somber Smithing stone [5]. There are 2 types of Miner here, I think one of them drop [4] the other one drop [5]. Farming them is quite a hassle though, drop rate seems abyssmal.

            There is a Somber Smithing Stone [4] you can pickup from a withered dead man. He is located in the Sellia Crystal Tunnels after the platforming you have to do in the beginning to continue through the tunnels. After the platforming, proceed through the tunnel and there will be a ladder. Climb up the ladder and turn around, you will see the withered dead man. You pick up the Somber Smithing Stone [4] from him.

              These seem to drop from those hand creature things, by the Grace named "ROAD OF INIQUITY" by Volcano Manor. I didn't kill the big hand thing so I can't confirm anything for that one, but i got 3 of them from a small group of mini hand things that ambush you just up that hill and to the right from the big hand. I did it a second time to see if they would drop again and I got 1 more. This is probably a really easy way to get these, as those mini hands only have around 300 health.

              • Found another to the southeast of the Main Caria Manor Gate Grace site. It's on a courpse in a chair near the base of the cliff on the small piece of land sticking out

                • I also found one inside the Gael tunnel as a crystal formation. It's in a chamber near the Grace site on the right hand side, guarded by 2 foot soldiers. In the room, there's a few small octopus, and one large one protecting the crystal

                    Found one south of the forsaken ruins in Caelid, parallel with the Gael Tunnel on a scarab hanging off a tree you can pass under
