It may seem like something as simple as a string would be easy to come by, but it’s a surprisingly rare resource in Elden Ring. String can only be found in a few places in the world and, on top of that, they only have a 5% chance of being dropped by specific enemies, so farming this resource can be very time-consuming.

String Locations in Elden Ring

String can be found in the following locations in the world:

  • Leyndell Royal Capital – In the sewers, on a corpse in a big room full of rats.
  • Earthbore Cave – It can be found on dead bodies around the area.
  • Altus Plateau – You can find String on the corpses of Demi-Humans.
  • Mount Gelmir – Strings can be found on dead bodies on the roof in Hermit Village.

String Farm Locations in Elden Ring

Another way to get a string is to farm it from enemies. Demi-Humans and Demi-Human Chiefs are enemies that have a mere 5% string drop rate for this item. Although demi-humans can be found all over throughout the map, the best places to farm them are listed below:

  • Volcano Cave – Currently, this is the best farming location. You can find 6 demi-humans outside the cave, 5 demi-humans near the Volcano Cave Site of Grace, and more of them deeper in the cave.
  • Coastal Cave – There are 7 demi-humans in the first room of this cave.
  • Lakeside Crystal Cave – There are a lot of demi-humans on the top level of the dungeon.

When farming String, consider re-specializing your character to improve your farming speed, as well as using AOE spells or attacks to quickly clear out groups of demi-humans. After, return to the nearest Site of Grace to reset enemies, and continue grinding.
