One of the main elements of Elden Ring is the ability to put stat points into different attributes. Not only does this make your character stronger; it also increases your level by one each time you put a point into a different attribute. While this costs some precious Runes, it’s worth it to vanquish your enemies more easily. However, if for whatever reason you need to change your stats, you are able to respec them in Elden Ring.
Respec simply means to start over with your stat points. If you want to respec the points, you will be reset and can then put the points into whatever attributes you like. Players often do this to try out a new build or correct a mistake they made when first designing their character.
In Elden Ring, you’re able to do this as many times as you want. Of course, this is provided you beat one demigod boss and have a specific item on hand.
Respec stat points in Elden Ring
In order to respec your stats, you must first make it all the way to the Academy of Raya Lucaria. This location is found in northwest Liurnia, meaning you have to defeat Godrick or skip his boss fight altogether.
Once you’re at the Academy, you’ll eventually stumble across a new demigod boss fight. This is against Rennala, Queen of the Full Moon, and it’s one of the most intriguing yet. While perhaps not as difficult as Godrick, Rennala uses some incredible spells and summons to take you down.
If you’ve managed to defeat Rennala, you will be transported to her main room. In here, you’ll find a Site of Grace and Rennala sitting on the floor cradling an orange egg. If you talk to her, you’ll find that she can actually “Rebirth” you, or reset your attributes. However, in order to do this, she requires one Larval Tear, which isn’t found until later in Elden Ring.
It all boils down to beating Rennala, acquiring one Larval Tear and then returning to her to respec your stats in Elden Ring. If you want to read about every and anything Elden Ring, check out Upcomer’s guide hub for the game.
