Stargazers’ Ruins Puzzle Reward – Primal Glintstone Blade
Upon unlocking, you’ll be gifted the Fancy Spin emote… but what you’re really here for is in the treasure chest below ground.
Your reward is a magic item, so make sure you’ve got the best staff in Elden Ring to compliment it!
Inside the chest is the talisman known as the Primal Glintstone Blade. Its abilities are best suited to sorcerers who are proficient in dodging or blocking incoming attacks.
That’s because this talisman will reduce your max HP whilst also lowering FP consumption when casting spells.
According to Fextralife, your HP will be lowered by a considerable 15%, but FP consumption will reduce by 25%. Whether it’s worth the trade depends on your play style and character build.
