Elden Ring: How to Respec Your Character?

Similar to other SoulsBorne games, Elden Ring allows the player to be reborn. Once reborn, the player are able to reset the stats/attributes. Doing so should allow the player to follow a whole lot of different builds in the game. However, do note that in addition to requiring an item, the ability to reborn a character is something that is not acquired from the beginning of the game. In this Elden Ring guide, we have detailed all there is to know about how to respec character.

Elden Ring Respec Character

Before we begin, do note that the guide contains story-related spoilers. You have been warned!

The ability to respec stats is not availble from the beginning of the game. To begin, travel to an area called the Liurnia. Once there, proceed to the Academy of Raya Lucaria. Do note that this requires an item called Glintstone Key. Once unlocked, progress through the game until Rennala, Queen of the Full Moon. To start respecing in Elden Ring, you need to beat Rennala at the Academy of Raya Lucaria.

After beating Rennala, travel to the Grand Library (Site of Grace) and speak with her. It is Rennala who will allow the character to respec stats. However, do note that this requires an item called Larval Tear. There are two main ways to get them:

Buying Larval Tears

You can buy a Larval Tear from the Abandoned Vendor in the Siofra River area for 5,000 Runes. This vendor is underground, which you can get to by going through the Mistwood to the Siofra River Well.


Larval Tears are also hidden in different areas of the game. Each region has its own challenges and enemies guarding these tears. For example, in Limgrave, you can get one from a Runebear, and in Liurnia, from a giant lobster.

Once you have a Larval Tear, go see Rennala at the Academy of Raya Lucaria. Give her the tear, and she will let you change your stats. This is your chance to adjust your character to fit how you want to play. Once reborn, the player will be able to reset the following attributes:

  • Vigor
  • Mind
  • Endurance
  • Strength
  • Dexterity
  • Intelligence
  • Faith
  • Arcane

Since these Larval Tear can be incredibly tough to get, Respec when you feel your current way of playing is not working well, or you want to try something new. Before you choose your new stats, make sure you understand what each build needs and how it matches your playstyle.

This is all we have got in how to respec in Elden Ring. For more help on the game, be sure to check out our detailed Elden Ring wiki page.
