Elden Ring: How to summon your horse mount (Torrent)

FromSoftware’s latest game marks their first foray into open world level design, with The Lands Between easily the largest single environment ever seen in one of their games. Unsurprisingly, traversing its entire length on foot isn’t particularly practical, so there’s a four-legged companion to get you from A to B quickly, if fast travel isn’t an option. Here’s how to summon your horse mount (Torrent) in Elden Ring.

How to summon your horse in Elden Ring

After meeting Melina, which happens quite early in Limgrave, she gives you the Spectral Steed Whistle, which is the item needed to summon Torrent. Once you have it, follow these steps:

  • After you have received the Spectral Steed Whistle from Melina (in Limgrave), equip it to your item slot. This can be done through the inventory screen (press the option button and select inventory) or by cycling your quick slot items using the d-pad.
  • With the item selected, use Square/X to summon Torrent.

Note that Torrent is not invulnerable and can be damaged by enemies. If Torrent’s HP drops to zero, you can summon him again, but you’ll need to use a Crimson Flask to bring him back.
