Elden Ring is an action role-playing game set in the Lands Between. As such you will need the best weapons & armor to survive against the hordes of enemies. But it may be the case where you are farming for certain items but on get it in multiple tries. Let’s say, you are trying to get a rare drop from Enemies but it takes a lot of time to get it as it drops rarely. This is due to your Discovery Stat being low. With a Higher Discovery Stat, you will be able to get rarer items faster. In this guide, I will show you how to Increase Item Drop Rate in Elden Ring.
How to Increase Your Item Drop Rate in Elden Ring
The Discovery Stat in Elden Ring is an attribute that is responsible for the drop rate for items. The higher this Stat is, the more rare items you will get. You cannot invest points in it directly but there are ways of increasing it. For one, the Discovery Stat is in a 1-to-1 ratio with your Arcane stat. The max you can get your Discovery to is 199 if your Arcane is at 99. This is an ideal situation but the case is true for Arcane builds as they rely on Arcane. If you cannot invest in Arcane then don’t worry, there are other ways to increase your Item Drop Rate in Elden Ring.
Items you should use for Discovery
You can use Consumables, Talismans, & Armor pieces to boost your Discovery Stat. In Consumables, you will have to use the Silver-Pickled Fowl Foot. It is a craftable item from the Missionary’s Cookbook. This will grant you 50 points into Discovery. In terms of Talismans, the Silver Scarab is what you should be using. You can find it after getting the Haligtree Secret Medallion. Use the Medallion in the Grand lift of Rold and follow the Hidden Path to the Haligtree. On the way, there will be a Staircase on the left. Climb the first flight of stairs to a platform. On the left there will be a broken railing, jump down from there. There will be an invisible platform. Follow the path and break the illusionary Wall. Behind it is a Chest containing the Silver Scarab.
The last thing you can use to increase your Item Drop Rate in Elden Ring is by wearing an Armor that boosts Arcane. There are many Helmets like the Witch’s Glintstone Crown, Mask of Confidence, & the Albinauric Mask but the best one you should be using is the Silver Tear Mask. To get this Helmet, you will have to beat the Mimic Tear boss in Nokron City. You will find the Boss in Nokron City, in the Southmost room on the western landmass. the Silver Tear Mask will boost your Discovery Stat by 8 points. This is a small increase, granted, but every bit of increase will help you in the long run.
