How To Get & Heal Torrent Horse Mount In Elden Ring

Searching for the horse location and want to know how to unlock and summon it in Elden Ring? Here's how to do it.

When you face the Tree Sentinel in Elden Ring, you might wonder – how do I get a horse mount of my own? Having a horse (named Torrent) will not only help you navigate the open-world faster but also give you new ways to fight the boss that’s on the horse. Plus, Torrent can sprint and double jump as well. Here’s how to unlock, get, summon and ride Torrent, the horse, in Elden Ring.

Elden Ring How to Unlock Horse Mount (Torrent)

  • To get the horse, you have to discover and rest at Sites of Grace until Melina shows up.
  • Then, when Melina appears, she will ask you something that you need to Accept. That’s when she will give Spectral Steed Whistle which can be used to summon your horse in Elden Ring.
  • At such Sites of Grace, you can do a lot. You can pass the time of day (change from day to night), restore your character’s health, FP and replenish Flasks (which is also helpful for the horse, as you will see below).
  • Keep in mind that the Spectral Steed Whistle will summon the horse, but not in some places such as dungeons. You are on your own there.

How to Heal Health and Revive Horse in Elden Ring?

Chances are that your horse will take damage during fights with enemies, especially bosses. If Torrent ends up dying, then you can revive it by using a Flask of Crimson Tears. You can refill the Flask at a Site of Grace, as mentioned before, so being near a Site can be helpful in case Torrent needs help.

You can also make Rowa Raisins from Rowa Fruit that you will collect along the way from bushes. Open up your crafting menu, craft Rowa Raisins and feed them to Torrent.

How to Ride (Mount & Dismount) the Horse (Controls)

  • Open up the Equipment menu.
  • Head to Quick Items.
  • Choose the slot to put the Spectral Steed Whistle.
  • Use the dedicated button to blow the Spectral Steed Whistle and you will see your character jump up on the horse. So, there’s no specific button you need to press to get on the horse, just blow the whistle.
  • You can dismount the horse by pressing the L3 button. If you blow the whistle while you are mounted, you can dismount as well.
