These are the steps I took to drop an item. The method is very straightforward. 

  • You just have to pause Elden Ring by clicking the Options button on your PS/ Xbox controller. If you’re on a PC, then you can click the ESC key situated at the top left of your keyboard.
  • Once the side pause menu opens up, choose the “Inventory” option.
  • Once you open up your inventory, simply hover over the item you want to drop and click/ select it. 
  • Click on “Leave” to make the player drop the item.
  • You can also pick the “Leave Selected” option if you plan to drop multiple items in the world. 
Important: Remember not to click on “Discard” because that will completely delete the item from your inventory.

Do keep in mind that any item you drop over the 8th one will automatically discard one of the earlier items on the floor. Therefore, when you’re trying to share items with your friends, make sure that you do not drop more than eight items at once.
