Elden Ring Bolt of Gransax Location & Tips

Elden Ring features some of the best builds, starting classes, hidden questlines, insane enemies, bosses to fight, and much more to discover. With legendary armaments and some of the best weapons on hand, it can assist the players in one way or another. The Bolt of Gransax’s legendary armament is overpowered and an excellent aid to players once it is acquired. Players can take help from our Elden Ring Bolt of Gransax Location guide. 

Bolt of Gransax Location In Elden Ring

The Bolt of Gransax is a legendary spear with a high attack and can allow players to deal lightning damage. Players can find it after venturing throughout the Altus Plateau, then going over to the Leyndell, Royal Capital, where adventurers will need to obliterate the Godfrey boss and head to several other Elden Ring Map locations to have the weapon in their arsenal. Let’s get started! 

Altus Plateau Starting 

Before players can even think to find the Bolt of Gransax Location, you will need to have ventured forth into the Altus Plateau, which can be accessed when you get hold of the Left and the Right Medallion take the help of the Grand Lift of Dectus. Here is a complete walkthrough that will guide you on how to get both of the Elden Ring Dectus Medallions

The left Medallion can be found when players go over to the Fort Haight in the central area of Mistwood, and the right Medallion itself can be accessed in Fort Faroth, in the general area of Dragonbarrow. Just like that, the Elden Ring Map Points guide might assist you in the future as the world of “The Lands Between” is vast.

Progressing with the location guide, players will need to get into the capital Rampart area, a significant area filled with countless buildings to explore before adventures can even get to the primary boss required to fight for the spear. On the subject of boss, read our Elden Ring Bosses Tier List.

Once adventurers have acquired the Bolt of Gransax, they can immediately start using it. The spear itself will provide players with excellent support when fighting enemies, as it scales off of Dexterity and Strength. It can strike down lightening upon any enemies that dare venture their way across your path. While we finished the location guide for the spear, you might want to also find the Elden Ring Rivers of Blood Katana too, or get some of the best Dex weapons in the game. 

Players can also upgrade the weapon, and it will cause a sudden boost in the overall physical and light damage output that players can attack the opponents with. Another excellent weapon is the Elden Ring Carian Greatsword which we can help you find too.
