FromSoftware’s Elden Ring sees players going against a wide array of deadly foes that come in all shapes and colors.

How to respec your stats - Elden Ring

To respec your stats in Elden Ring, you will first need to defeat Rennala, Queen of the Full Moon at Raya Lucaria Academy in Liurnia of the Lakes, north of Limgrave. Once defeated, players can speak to Rennala in order to respec their stats, though, a Larval Tear is needed in order to repsec. You can find a Larval Tear by solving the Resurrection painting.

When you have your Larval Tear, speak with Rennala and select the “Rebirth” option. This will put you at the level-up screen, but your level will be set back to what it was when you started the game. From here, you can apply all of your earned levels however you want.

As mentioned above, you will need a Larval Tear for this process. There are several found around the map, but there is a limited supply. Because of that, we recommend that you make sure you’re confident in your choice to respec your stats. If you've already gotten the Resurrection painting reward and want to respec again, another Larval Tear is at Agheel Lake South, where a standard enemy will transform into a bear once attacked. It will drop a Larval Tear once defeated. Check out our guide on Larval Tear locations for even more!

Now that you know how to respec your stats in elden Ring, you’re able to retool your build to fit a fresh play style. If you're wondering about how to unlock the chest near Rennala, we've got you covered. In fact, you can find all sorts of information over on our Elden Ring strategy guide.
