How to Get the Horse Mount, Torrent

Seren Morgan-Roberts

This page offers a guide on how to unlock Torrent, the horse mount in Elden Ring. To unlock the mount, you’ll need to talk to Melina the Maiden, who will give you a Spectral Steed Whistle that can be used to summon your mount at any time!

Torrent the mount.

How to Find Melina the Maiden

You’ll unlock Torrent the mount when you first speak to Melina. She will come to you when you rest at a Site of Grace for the third time. You can either find three separate Sites of Grace or rest at the same one three separate times to trigger the encounter with Melina. We rested at the following Sites of Grace: The First Step, the Church of Elleh and the site of Grace at Gatefront, which is a short ways north of the Church of Elleh.

You'll need to rest at a site of grace three times for Melina to approach you.

How to Use the Spectral Steed Whistle to Summon Torrent

Once she comes to you, she’ll offer to be your Maiden - which you can decline if you want! To get the mount, however, you’ll want to accept her proposal, upon which she’ll give you the Spectral Steed Whistle, which allows you to summon a steed and gallop around the open world. You can equip it to your quick tools pouch too for easier access. You can also battle on the back of your mount and double jump by hitting the jump button twice, which makes scaling rocky terrain and ruins a lot easier!

Other than giving you a mount, having a Maiden means you can level up and progress through the main story. If you initially declined her request but have since decided you do want her to be your Maiden, you can talk to Melina and change your mind whenever you rest at a Site of Grace point.
