Elden Ring is a huge game. And, like most games of that size, it holds many secrets and has many items that you will need to obtain in order to advance the story and visit new locations. One of these items is the Glintstone Key. You will get the chance to acquire this item after you defeat Godrick the Grafted. After this, you can then proceed to the Raya Lucaria Academy in Liurnia. This is a great location if you are a Sorceries-using character, since you will be able to get many magics at this location. As you approach the door to the Academy, you will see a body there, with a map. This Meeting Place Map will point you towards the Glintstone Key in Elden Ring.
Where to Find Elden Ring Academy Glintstone Key
The map you will get off this body is called the Meeting Place Map. When you loot the corpse to get it, open up your inventory and interact with the map. This will point you towards a location nearby where you can get the Glintsone Key. In fact, the place you are looking for is a small island directly northwest from South Raya Luceria Gate. Don’t worry, we have the exact place marked in our screenshot gallery down below.
However, be warned. When you arrive at this location, you will encounter a powerful dragon there. The Glintstone Dragon Smarag is a mighty boss that can make quick work of you if you are unprepared for it. The good news is that you are not required to fight it. Since it is sleeping, you can carefully sneak around it to get to the body with the Glintstone Key. Once you have the key in your possession, go back to the South Raya Luceria Gate in order to open it and proceed to the Raya Lucaria Academy.
Very early in your exploration of Elden Ring world you will find out that you need to prepare your character for different tasks. You'll need to learn how to use Ashes of War, how to two-hand weapons, or use magic spells during the course of your adventures. Many secrets are also waiting for you, such as, a hostile NPC Sellen that doesn't let you see her shop, an invisible man in a bush, or a huge turtle with a bell that lets you duplicate some very important items.
