How to Get +25 Weapon in Elden Ring 2024: Advanced Strategies for Power Without Boss Fights

It was speculated that getting stronger in Elden Ring required fighting the bosses and looting them, as it provided you with tons of Elden Ring Runes, and also high-level Elden Ring Items onwards. But, it was all wrong, as you can get +25 Level Weapons to one-shot bosses without actually fighting them beforehand. How to do it? Well, we compiled this guide on How to get +25 Weapons in Elden Ring 2024 without fighting bosses in the game.

How to Get +25 Weapon in Elden Ring 2024: Advanced Strategies for Power Without Boss Fights

To get the highest level weapons in the Elden Ring without fighting bosses, you will require Smithing Stones 1 to 8 (presumably 12 of each) and afterward find the Ancient Dragon Smithing Stone. All of these are used to upgrade the weapon to its highest level possible in the Elden Ring, boosting its damage and stats. We will show you how to get them in this guide, so you can best prepare for the Elden Ring DLC - Shadow of the Erdtree.

Getting Ride in Elden Ring

Go to the Guardian Garrison to get the last Smithing Stone 7 that you need. It is found on the upper level inside the castle. 

Purchasing Smithing Stones and Leveling Greatsword

As mentioned earlier, after you give the Bell Bearing as an offering to the Twin Maiden Husk, you can get the Smithing Stone 2 to 6 an unlimited number of times. You need 50,500 Runes for the Stones that you have to purchase. 

You can follow our Elden Ring Rune Farming Guide, or purchase Elden Ring Runes from MMOPixel, which gives you an edge. So, combined, you have 12 of each Smithing Stone from 1 to 6.

You also have a handful of Smithing Stone 7, which you have to save for now. Use the Smithing Stones 1  to 6 to Level up your Greatsword at any Blacksmith. This will probably bump the Level of your Greatsword to +18 in Elden Ring 2024, without even fighting a single boss. 

Getting Smithing Stone 7, 8, and Ancient Dragon Smithing Stone

For the journey ahead, you have to put Flame of the Redmanes Ash of War, which makes fighting quite effortless. 

Getting Smithing Stone 7, 8, and Ancient Dragon Smithing Stone

Near the map fragment, you will find a corpse that has Smithing Stone 8. 

From there, travel northwest, and you can use a sleeping rune bear to break the statue, which gives you 3x Smithing Stone 7, and also 1 Smithing Stone 8.

Getting Smithing Stone 7, 8, and Ancient Dragon Smithing Stone

From there go south where you also find a massive tree, near the gate, and you can get the Smithing Stone 8. It is found on a corpse that is resting on a tree.

Getting Smithing Stone 7, 8, and Ancient Dragon Smithing Stone

Go further south from there and enter the Tunnel marker on the map, which is the Telough Tunnel that gives you 8x Smithing Stone 8. This is where fighting comes into consideration, as you have to fight multiple enemies and explore the Tunnel to get the Smithing Stone 8.

Enemies here are weak against fire, and using the Ash of War, you can bypass them quickly without wasting any of your precious time.

On the lower level of the Yelough Tunnel, you will also find a corpse that has an Ancient Dragon Smithing Stone, which is the highest level Smithing Stone used to level weapons in the Elden Ring.

Upgrading Weapon to Level +25 in Elden Ring

Now that you have 12 Smithing Stones 7, and 8, alongside an Ancient Dragon Smithing Stone, you can go to the Blacksmith, and level up your precious weapon to Level +25 without fighting a single boss. 

Conclusion

Smithing Stones are used to upgrade any weapon of your choice in Elden Ring but to reach the maximum level of 25, you require Smithing Stones 1 to 8 (12 of each), and finally the Ancient Dragon Smithing Stone. They are spread around the map, and to proceed to the next level you have to fight bosses. Well, it was presumed before, but you can use techniques to travel around the map, finding all the essential Smithing Stones.
