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 to 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 to Respec
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.
When to Respec
It is completely up to you when you want to Respec your character. Usually, if you find equipment, spells, or weapons that require different stats than what you have, Respecing can help you equip them properly.
If you are not having fun with your current build, you can always Respec and try out other builds so that you can play the game how you want. Since magic is quite strong in Elden Ring, many players want to try that out but started the game with the classic Strength build. So, you can Respec in that case and become a mage.
The good news is that you can Respec anytime you want. Plus, there is no limitation on how many times you can do this. However, make sure that you have a lot of Larval Tears in your inventory if you want to Respec your character.
That’s all there is to know about how to Respec in Elden Ring. You need to head over to the Raya Lucaria Acadamy in Liurnia of the Lakes and defeat Rennala to unlock this option. Talking to her will allow you to Respec your character and be reborn according to the stats you want.
