How to Re-Spec Stats & Attributes in Elden Ring

Elden Ring can prove to be unforgiving for players that don’t apply their stats and attributes correctly, but thankfully players will be able to re-spec their characters.

FromSoftware’s newest game, Elden Ring, is proving to be a punishing open-world adventure for those that walk into it unprepared. Without the proper knowledge of certain aspects of Elden Ring, players could find themselves 30 hours in and still unable to withstand most bosses.

Thankfully, there is a way to re-spec and start from zero. It’s going to take 5,000 runes and a lot of your time. But it’s possible.

Here’s how to re-spec all your stats and attributes in Elden Ring.

Elden Ring: How to Re-Spec

If players want to change their style of play and re-spec their character they’re going to need a Larval Tear.

What does a Larval Tear do it exactly? Well, it gives players the opportunity to reset all their stats and refund all the runes you’ve collected so far.

That means players that have a melee-based Vagabond build can rebuild their character into a sorcery-based Astrologer with the help of this in-game item.

Elden Ring allows players to cater their fighting style to them. Understanding the different stats and what they do is essential. But, if you’re someone that likes to go in blind then obtaining the Larval Tear is necessary to help you re-spec when you reach a wall.

Where to Find a Larval Tear in Elden Ring

To obtain a Larval Tear players will need to purchase it for 5,000 Runes from the Abandonded Vendor.

The Elden Ring map is massive. Finding the Larval Tear will require players to travel quite a bit.

To find the Abandoned Vendor players will need to travel to the Siofre River. The Siofre River can be found by taking the lift in the Siofre River Well down. This lift can be found in Mistwood. Here you can find the Abandonded Vender near a small campsite.

Once you have purchased the Larval Tear you are one step closer to being able to re-spec. All you need to do next is travel to the Liurna of the Lakes.

How to Use a Larval Tear

To even get a chance to use the Larval Tear, players will need to find Rennala, The Full Moon Queen, at the Raya Luceria Academy to start from zero and rebuild their character.

This is easier said than done as there are a few steps players will need to complete to find Rennala.

  • Players need to travel to Liurna of the Lakes and find the flooded Academy Gate Town. This is how players will find the Raya Luceria Academy.
  • Once players have reached a gate they will find a map, the Meeting Place Map. Follow the maps directions to an island guarded by Glintstone Dragon Smarag.
  • Players will either need to fight the Glintstone Dragon Smarag, or smake their way around it stealthily. Either way, they need to get their hands on the Academy Glintstone Key. The key will be located on a masked dead body behind the Dragon.
  • After obtaining the key and making your way through Main Academy Gate, players will be able to find Rennala.

And that’s how players can re-spec all their stats and refund all their runes. It’s a bit tricky, but if you’re looking to completely rebuild your character without having to restart your adventure it’s your only option.
