Respecing – or resetting – is a fun mechanic in Elden Ring that allows you to reset your character’s stats and be reborn. If you find equipment that requires a Faith build but you’re going for a Dex build, Respecing can allow you to solve that problem. That is why this guide will show you how many times you can Respec in Elden Ring.

Surprisingly, many players do not know about this mechanic despite the game telling them about it. Plus, there is no harm in it as you can try out different builds thanks to this without having to start the game over again. With that said, let’s jump straight in and get started.

Elden Ring: How Many Times Can You Respec?

Talk to Rennala after defeating her to Respec.

You can respec as many times as you want in Elden Ring. If you find yourself having issues with the build you are currently using, you can always respec and try another build.

To Respec your character, you need to defeat Godrick and unlock the Liurnia of the Lakes region. Here, travel to the Raya Lucaria Acadamy by unlocking the gate using the key. Progress through this dungeon until you reach the end where you meet Rennala, Queen of the Full Moon.

Now, a boss fight will start which has two phases, Overall, the fight is quite easy and you can quickly defeat Rennala. After defeating her, she will sit in the middle of the room where you can interact with her. Talking to her will allow you to choose the “Rebirth” option.

Here, you can adjust your stats and completely reset your character and go for the build that you want.

The good news is that you can Respec anytime you want. Plus, there is technically no limitation on how many times you can do this. However, since the game only has a limited amount of Larval Tears, you cannot respec more than a certain amount of times in a given playthrough.

How Many Larval Tears Are in Elden Ring?

Larval Tears are key items in Elden Ring that are needed to respec your character. As long as you have these items, you can change your build by talking to Rennala. However, the game only features a limited number of Larval Tears, and you cannot farm them off of enemies.

While a certain enemy might drop a Larval Tear, you cannot get it again even if you kill that enemy a hundred times. The total number of Larval Tears varies but it is believed that the game has 18 Larval Tears in a single playthrough.

So, this means that you can potentially respec your character 18 times which is quite a lot in my opinion. Having the ability to change your build this much should be more than enough and should help you choose a build that you are satisfied with.


And there you have it; that’s everything you need to know about how many times you can Respec in Elden Ring. The game allows you to gather 18 Larval Tears (give or take) and use them to change your build by talking to Rennala.

Did you manage to find all Larval Tears in the game? Are there more tears that we don’t know of? Let us know in the comments below!
