Elden Ring: Where To Find Aspects Of The Crucible: Horns

In "Elden Ring," the Lands Between are full of unique spells and items — but that doesn't stop most players from rushing through the entire game equipped only with the strongest weapons. However, anyone willing to experiment with the less popular spells and items can sometimes develop some super strong builds. Not every item in the game is easy to find, though. Instead, players can only obtain some through exploring secret areas. Aspects of the Crucible: Horns is one of these hidden spells.

Aspects of the Crucible: Horns is an incantation that should look familiar to every player. That's because it's the same spell the Crucible Knight uses when fighting the player during every encounter. This powerful incantation, true to its name, launches a massive horn out of the user and deals physical damage by impaling foes. Additionally, players can charge the spell to increase its range and damage. Its low Faith requirement of 27 makes it a strong early game spell. It also has the perk of receiving a 3.5% damage bonus for each piece of the Crucible Axe Set and Crucible Tree Set equipped. However, finding the spell is tricky and may require some backtracking from players.

Next stop: Stormveil Castle

To obtain the Aspects of the Crucible: Horns incantation, players need first to beat Margit, The Fell Omen, to gain access to Stormveil Castle. After making it inside the castle, players need to activate the Rampart Tower Site of Grace, the second Site of Grace in the castle past the Stormveil Cliffside. This Site of Grace is directly above the Wine Cellar, so it's hard to miss. From the Rampart Tower Site of Grace, players must walk north and into the courtyard, where the three weapon-wielding birds are waiting. After taking care of the birds, players must take the first left at the cutout on the walkway. Next, players must jump onto the handrail and then fall onto the cliffs below. Players will have to keep jumping down the cliffs until making it to the bottom. Players must then run south across the ledge to finally confront the Crucible Knight.

All players need to do now is kill the Crucible Knight to receive the spell. Luckily, this Crucible Knight won't be hard for many players at this point; it uses the same attacks as the one found at the Stormhill Evergaol. Parrying is a good technique against the boss, but players need to watch out for the enemy's incantations, which go right through parries. An easy way to cheese the Crucible Knight is to ride the elevator behind it up, and the knight will fall to its death as it tries to pursue the player. After killing the boss, players can equip Aspects of the Crucible: Horns at any Site of Grace.
