If you are a Souls veteran, you will know that leveling up your character is extremely important in FromSoft games. However, when you start a new journey in Elden Ring, you won’t be able to find this option anywhere. That is why this guide will show you how to level up in Elden Ring.
To level up, you need to find Melina and interact with her at the Site of Grace. Then, put points into whichever stat you want to level up.
If you’re like me, you might have completely skipped the “finding Melina” part by accident. With that said, let’s dive right in and take a look at how you can find her and level up in Elden Ring.
Elden Ring: How to Level Up
The first time I played Elden Ring, I accidentally skipped the part where you are supposed to talk to Melina. Instead, I progressed through the game and fought Margit, The Fell Omen. Since I didn’t level up my character before fighting this boss, I had a lot of difficulties.
Where to Find Melina
The first thing you need to do when playing the game is to activate all Sites of Grace that you see. Once you reach the Gatefront site, you should rest at it to trigger a short cutscene. Doing so will allow you to talk to Melina. She will explain the basics of how you level up and what you need to do.
Plus, she will also give you an item that will allow you to call your trusty stead – Torrent. This makes it easier to travel the map since the game features a massive open world that is almost impossible to discover on foot. Mounting Torrent also makes certain boss fights quite easy as well.
Now, whenever you rest at any Site of Grace, you will see an option to level up your stats. You can put points into whatever stat you want and go for the build that you want to try.
And there you have it; that’s everything you need to know about how to level up in Elden Ring. It can be a bit confusing for newer players but once you know what you have to do, then you should gather tons of Runes and talk to Melina.
