Elden Ring Star Shower Guide

  • Glintstone Sorcery
  • Stamina Cost: 26
  • 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
  • A upgraded version of Glintstone Stars, with the same characteristics but inferior FP-to-damage ratio. Due to the high FP costs it may be deemed unsuitable for explorations, but useful for special and planned encounters.
  • Star Shower, 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 
  • Star Shower 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 Star Shower 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
  • This sorcery may be charged by holding the input. This increases the cast time slightly, but also increases the damage.

      This is still undodgeable, please From nerf it's tracking like you did with the other. Ridiculous spell, zero counter play

        Time to use this in PvP now that Stars of Ruin tracking is so bad you can just move to the side to avoid it.

          Can someone explain to me how Star Shower has an "inferior FP-to-damage ratio" compared to Glintstone Stars? GS costs 14 and fires 3 stars, while SS costs 23 and fires 6 stars. So shouldn't SS do twice as much damage for LESS than twice the cost?

            I spammed this on night cavalry near lenne rise which caused it to stuck in confusion on bridge edge. Overall good spell for mounted enemies if you can't aim for **** like me

              I believe this got shadow nerfed in the latest update. Previously, every single projectile would stagger opponents in pvp. Now, I don't think it has staggered even once. This is what we get for using a more interesting spell than Stars of Ruin.

                Absolutely fantastic against npc phantoms and npc"iish" enemies, for some reason the AI just does not even try to doge it

                  Very underrated spell. While Stars of Ruin does more damage overall, the one advantage Star Shower has over Ruin is the ability to stagger smaller enemies/opponents. This means that it's incredibly useful during co-oping to stun certain bosses like Malenia (1st phase) from accidentally killing your host. Cycling Star Shower with Stars of Ruin can also be useful in PvP as most people would just expect Ruin and not expect Star Shower to stagger them when caught in it.

                    The 3-star version of this is much more FP efficient and stars of ruin, the 12 star version, has much more burst damage, otherwise it's great for PVP. If you don't have stars of ruin and you aren't planning on spamming the 3 star version than this is a solid pick.

                      As someone else has said, this is prob one of the bwst pvp spells im the game because the stars track and trun the fastest, the spell speed is nearly un-reactable, it does decent damage, and most importantly, this spell has high poise break and staggers opponenets

                      stars of ruin doesnt do that, not sure why this spell does

                        FP cost is high, damage is low, and it doesn't compare to the starter sorcery Glintstone Pebble because of the aforementioned issues and, naturally, how slow it casts. A trend you'll find very common for most spells in this game is that they're too slow, weak and often more expensive than your starter spell. It's hard to beat a spell that you can spam like you're swinging a sword, but a few do in certain situations.

                          Damage is not impressive, fp cost is sort of high, not to be used carelessly, but it has its use since the tracking amazing. Good for pvp when low health and running away. Use it with pebble afterwards tends to do good work in my experience

                            This is one of the best spells in the game when it comes to PvP. The damage doesn't matter, just charge it up and get guaranteed chip damage. It also forces your opponent to roll, letting you set-up more shenanigans, or force a roll-catch. Don't listen to anyone saying it's got too high of a cost and not enough damage, this will win you fights against players.

                              The tracking is nice but the extremely high mana cost and comparatively bad casting speeds makes it a side grade at most

                                FP cost to Damage ratio is bad. Pebble still reigns supreme honestly, however it's very fast and auto-tracks the target.

                                  It has a high cost but its tracking capabilities make this spell a really good choice to use against nimble enemies compared to Pebble.
