This guide shows all Elden Ring Stonesword Key Locations. The stonesword keys are used to break imp statue seals blocking the path. You will frequently encounter white walls of mist that block the path. These have an imp statue where you can use a stonesword key to make the white wall of mist go away. Powerful and rare items are often hidden in these areas. If you want to fully explore all areas of the map, the stonesword keys are mandatory to open up all side areas.
If you are missing a site of grace or other area referenced below, refer to Elden Ring All Sites of Grace Locations.
- Limgrave: Stormhill Shack – On a small ledge next to the Stormhill Shack. Pick up the item off a dead body.
- Limgrave: Dragon-burnt Ruins – Found in one of the closed in areas along the surface of the area guarded by a large rat.
- Limgrave: Murkwater Cave – 1 purchasable from Patches for 5000 runes (after defeating him in battle, forgive him and he will turn into a merchant, may need to come back later).
- Limgrave: Fringefolk Hero’s Cave – Next to a ghostly enemy, requires you to drop down from the room where the Erdree’s Favor talisman is, to the left of the bridge leading to it and following the path.
- Stormveil Castle: Rampart Tower – Go up the elevator to the top, then outside to the top area. Jump onto the railing of the tower, then to the tower to the west which has a hole in the top. Drop inside to find this.
- Roundtable Hold – After restoring your first Great Rune (see How to restore Great Runes), you can go through the doors in the main room of Roundtable Hold. Twin Maiden Husks merchant sells 3 of these.
Liurnia of the Lakes
- Liurnia of the Lakes: Academy Gate Town – Northwest corner of the sunken tower area, there is a tower on a building with a chest with this in it, very close to the castle wall.
- Liurnia of the Lakes: Main Academy Gate – From this side of grace go down the path to the east and you’ll find a merchant (called Isolated Merchant) who sells 3 Stonesword Key. To enter the Academy of Raya Lucaria area you need the Academy Glintstone Key to open the blue magic seals at South Raya Lucaria Gate.
- Liurnia of the Lakes: Schoolhouse Classroom – Halfway through Academy of Raya Lucaria, after the “Red Wolf of Radagon” boss, leave the room to the outside and straight ahead you’ll see a structure that looks like a well (but without water) and a little pillar in its middle. Jump up this structure to find this on a corpse.
