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 in Leyndell, Royal Capital after defeating Godfrey Golden Shade. So let’s get started! 

Altus Plateau Starting 

Before players can even think of finding 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.

  • The left Medallion can be found when players go over to Fort Haight in the central area of Mistwood.
  • 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.

  • Keep running forward until you encounter a left turn. Steer left and started heading north again. 

Once players are running across the leading platform, they will encounter the bridge ledges that will be intact, apart from one ledge with a small crack on the balcony. From the gap in the barrier, players want to drop down onto a small platform that will allow them to land on it.

From the platform itself, jump on the giant spear monument. Carefully start making your way up the vast spear monument, ensuring that you do not slip off the monument. Now just progress ahead and obtain the Bolt of Gransax.

Using The Bolt of Gransax In Elden Ring

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 lightning upon any enemies that dare venture their way across your path. While I finished the location guide for the spear, you might want to find the Elden Ring Rivers of Blood Katana, too.

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

This concludes my Elden Ring Bolt of Gransax Location guide; I hope that it was easy to follow. Let me know what you think in the comments below!
