In Elden Ring, Weapons are an essential tool in surviving the unforgiving Lands Between. But at some point, those Weapons are not going to be helpful. In such cases, you will have to upgrade them. The only way you can upgrade is through a Smithing Table or the Blacksmith in the Roundtable Hold. Special Weapons are Weapons that are dropped by Bosses in the game. They can only be upgraded to +10 Weapon level. To upgrade them, you will need a certain Upgrade Material, The Somber Ancient Dragon Smithing Stone. In this guide, I will show you how to get the Somber Ancient Dragon Smithing Stone in Elden Ring.
