Elden Ring is a game that many people around the world hold in high regard. The reason for that is the fact that Elden Ring is FromSoftware's first open-world game, and the map is massive. Because of the map in Elden Ring, there is a lot of content to find and a lot of areas to explore. Due to that reason, traversal can be a bit of a challenge.
That is why Elden Ring is a game where you can mount a horse. Mounting a horse in Elden Ring is relatively easy. It is as easy as equipping a weapon in Elden Ring. Here, we are going to go over how you can mount a horse in Elden Ring and what steps you need to take to have the ability to do so.
How To Summon A Horse In Elden Ring
Before you can even think about summoning a horse, you will need a certain item to do so. The item you need is a Spectral Steed Whistle. This is the key item you will need to summon your horse in Elden Ring. To get this whistle, you need to visit a Site of Grace past the tutorial area. Melina will then visit you at the site and give you the whistle.
Once you have the whistle, you can use it from the equipment menu to summon your horse, Torrent, at any time. But you can use a hotkey to quickly summon your horse instead of having to go through the menus to do so. We suggest that you open up your menu and on the right side, you will see your pouch. Go to the pouch, and place your whistle on whatever pouch hotkey you want to put it on. This will be on the d-pad if you are playing on a console. Hit that button, and you will be automatically placed on your horse.
Why Should I Ride A Mount In Elden Ring?
As we have previously stated, Elden Ring has a huge map. The Lands Between is massive, and being able to ride a mount is very useful. There is only one mount in the game, so you do not have to worry about trying to upgrade your horse. So having Torrent by your side means you essentially have full access to the Elden Ring map.
Riding a mount allows you to move quickly and reach places you could not before. Torrent can double-jump, which means that you can reach even further than you could on foot. On top of that, you can swing your weapons while you are riding Torrent. That means that you can quickly get in and out of fights while riding your horse.
