Some of you might have trouble figuring out how to summon your Elden Ring horse, and I don’t blame you. This is especially true for you’re just beginning and are wondering where your mount is. Even when you do get to the point where you’ve unlocked the horse, you might still be stuck unable to call upon your steed. That’s why we’ve written this guide, in which we’ll show you how to summon Torrent in Elden Ring.
How to Summon Horse in Elden Ring
To summon your horse Torrent in Elden Ring, you first need to have the Spectral Steed Whistle. We’ll get into that a bit later; for now, we’re going to assume that you have the item. You can place the steed whistle into your pouch or your inventory. If it’s in the pouch, you can just press Triangle or Y or whatever the equivalent is on the PC (I believe it’s holding E), and select the whistle to use it. On the other hand, if the whistle is just sitting in your inventory, you should place it in one of your quick slots, then scroll through the items in your quickslots until the whistle is highlighted. When it is, just hit down one the d-pad, and boom, there’s your noble steed.
So, those are the ways to summon your Elden Ring horse Torrent. Just keep in mind that, as soon as you blow the whistle, the mount will appear and you will automatically hop on. As far as we can tell, it’s all one, long action. So, be careful how you use it; lest you lock yourself into the mounting animation in the middle of being attacked. Incidentally, as we’ve covered in our How to Dismount guide, you get off by either pressing L3 or blowing the whistle again. Speaking of, you get the whistle the first time you meet Melina. When she offers to be your Finger Maiden, say yes, and she’ll give you the whistle. We cover this in more detail in our How to Get Mount in Elden Ring guide.
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.
