Like similar items in From Software’s previous games, there are consumable items in Elden Ring that boost the item drop rate and the currency acquisition. In Elden Ring, you can craft various useful consumables, which is a great alternative to finding the items themselves in the field.

Gold-Pickled Fowl Foot boosts your Rune Acquisition by a whopping 30% and Silver-Pickled Fowl Foot boosts your Item Drop rate by +50.

Gold Firefly farming locations

The single best location to farm Gold Fireflies is the octopus pond northeast of the Tower of Return in the Weeping Peninsula. Not only this area is accessible very early on in the game, but you also can gather a whopping eleven Gold Fireflies here. You’ll then have to travel back to a near Site of Grace so they’ll respawn for you to pick up again.

Another easy location to find these is another pond on the outskirts of the Mistwood, also in the Limgrave region. You must head southeast from the Mistwood Outskirts Site of Grace to find this pond.

You can’t miss it because there are two huge Lesser Runebears here. You’ll have to be very careful because these beasts are ridiculously strong, and you’ll have a really hard time defeating one of them, let alone two.

Silver Firefly farming locations

You can find these fireflies in Limgrave and the Ainsel River regions. When you’re exploring Limgrave, you may come across these in caves. One of the easiest locations to farm Silver Fireflies in the early game is the Groveside Cave.

After reaching the Site of Grace of the Growside Cave, you must walk straight into the cave to find a tiny waterfall. There are five Silver Fireflies here, and they respawn when you rest at the site of grace.

There are wolves about, so you may need to exterminate them first for safer farming. Of course, running through them works too, and the Beast Repellent Torch will also prove quite useful in keeping the wolves away.

The other major location you can farm Silver Fireflies is the Ainsel River region. Travel to the Ainsel River Main Site of Grace, walk north, and look around attentively to find six of these.

In my opinion, Groveside Cave is a much easier place to farm these because you’ll access it very early on in the game.

The Cookbooks with the Crafting Recipes

Maybe you haven’t found the recipes to craft these items yet, for example, if you’re playing as a new character. Here are the locations where you can find Missionary’s Cookbook [2] and Missionary’s Cookbook [3]. These contain the recipes for the Gold-Pickled Fowl Foot and the Silver-Pickled Fowl Foot, respectively.

Missionary’s Cookbook [2]

You can buy it from Patches. If he’s less than alive, you can turn in his bell-bearing to the Twin Maiden Husks in the Roundtable Hold and buy it there.

Here’s the Smoldering Church. You can get the cookbook here. But you will also be invaded by Anastasia, Tarnished Eater. Beware.
