Material needed by Rennala to grant rebirth

Larval Tears are Key Items in Elden Ring. A Larval Tear is a material needed by Rennala to grant rebirth. Key Items in Elden Ring include a wide variety of items found in specific locations or given by a related NPC, which are used to unlock areas, quests, and to further progress the game's story.

 

Core of a creature of mimicry known as a silver tear.
As much as a substance as it is a living organism.

Material required by the amber egg cradled by Rennala, Queen of the Full Moon, to birth people anew.

Being born anew allows the reallocation of attributes boosted by leveling up.

Larval Tear Notes & Tips

  • You do not need to defeat Rennala for the enemies to change shape when you kill them in their disguise.
  • By the time you fight Rennala, you should have enough runes to buy the Larval Tears from the previously mentioned merchants.
  • You will keep all the Larval Tears in your inventory upon entering New Game Plus.
  • Cannot be dropped for Player Trade.
  • If the player gives Boc the Seamster a Larval Tear, he will visit Rennala, be reborn with a human visage, and die soon after. The player will not be able to use his services for the rest of the game.
  • Although during online coop it appears the player as a Furled Finger could pick up it as a drop from  the corresponding enemies, the picked up Larval Tears will be removed from player’s inventory upon returning to their own worlds.

      Am i the only one the is disappointed by this? Rennala asks if i "Wish to boirn anew?" yet i can't reallocate that 6 faith that my Prisner started with to anything useful for my buld. That ain't realy "born anew" but more like reverse time a lil bit.

        There are even fewer items to max out your weapons to +10 or +24. I don't really get why respecing your character more than 16 times is so important. If you want just rune farm and have enough stats to do whatever weapon you like? Souls games were always about choices that you can't take back. It's just how you can kill crucial NPCs and they won't come back.

        In my opinion, making them limited is just to motivate you to focus on actually finishing the game. In DS3, just changing your characters appearance cost you one of your respecs, so we already got a buff. Really, to me, this is the same argument that "This game is too hard! I paid good money for it so I should be able to beat it!".

        I dunno really, everyone is going to have thier own opinions in the end.

          Let us buy this tears with souls. I mean, doesnt make sense, such a big big game, and you can only respec once a game? I hope we get more in the DLC.

          • Anonymous

            Best solution: remove this dumb item. Let respec cost souls depending on what ng you are on. A high cost so that there is a soul sink in this game.

            • Cool if it was infinite (bought from maiden husks) but for every tear bought the pize rises, like... 10 or 20k. 99% of people do not respec their character 16times in one game, so there is no reason to limit this imho

              • Anonymous

                Ok seriously. In 5 min of reading these comments, there is an easy solution for all perspectives. Make an arena where you can build a spec to test on waves of npcs. No runes gained and spec is not retained after each session. Let's folks test weapons and skills without wasting valuable limited resources. 16 larval tears is then more than enough in all scenarios.

                    Oh yes, being punished for wanting to try every cool weapon/build of the game I BOUGHT WITH MY OWN MONEY, it is like it is saying: No, you can't try all you want on a single run, go do the entire content again if you want to, **** your enjoyment that you were supposed to have while enjoying every aspect of the open world, rush it if you wanna try something cool and DO IT AGAIN. Another attempt to force people on to going NG+, this should be optional, not something forced to make you enjoy 100% of the game that was supposed to have on the first run on the first place.

                      While I agree there should be a way to get more tears, it's pointless to try many different builds on the same character when there is also a limited supply of max upgrade materials. I guess going into higher NG cycles would be the only way to get more upgrade mats + tears unless you're using CE on pc ofc.

                      • Oops, turns out I wanted 16 strength instead of 15, I guess I'll have only about 15 chances to waste 30 minutes of my life getting authorization from an abusive game to change 1 bit of code! "10/10 15 year old kid game design ideas" I was going to say that, but I'm sure plenty of ~15 year old devs actually game design better than this LMAO (one convincing piece of evidence is how this game still uses unmodified 13 year old broken garbage camera code from probably Demon's Souls that behaves like a professional neck snapper, the code is not just collecting spider webs it's turning radioactive)

                          There isn't actually 18 in the game, there is 16 because it is inevitable you will make the true meta build (high/max) dex/fth build with the minimum strength requirement to wield Sacred Relic Sword to slaughter Albinaurics.

                          The other one will be used to respec into a new build with the fat stack of runes you collected.

                            There needs to be way more of these...

                            ...as in why tf aren't they purchasable? Make them a high price but ffs it sucks having to go into ng+ when you like to switch up builds on one playthrough. Like holy smokes mikey I dun wanna collect all this bs again.

                              I may have the answer to the problem of infinite respecing. Obviously, respecing for every boss is a little bit like cheating. Having limited attempts for that is fine, but infinite respecing at late game would be fun. In addition, sometimes you hit a wall/rut where you are just bored and need something fresh after beating a game's story. So just make a reward for the final boss (either in base game or DLC) a bell bearing that allows for the purchase of larval tears. That way you can't respec infinitely just to beat a boss, but you can have fun experimenting in the post-story game. This is, after all, what the bell bearing system is for. The game forces you to do the grinding for smithing stones system until you find the bell bearing and then you can buy all the stones you want for upgrading weapons to +24. Do the same thing with Larval Tears.

                                I wish these could at least be farmable by the big balls. Even like a 1% drop rate, just let me respec infinitely without running cheat engine.

                                  The number of tears in the game is fine atm. Just beat the game with the easiest build imaginable (ungabunga strength build), no need to respec (or use brains or skills for that matter). Afterwards you can try out some builds that actually require the said skills and brains.

                                    use scenario : change build because you want to optimise your attributes to fit the build you’d like to try……….game : actually? no… either go ng+ or make a new character………… it’s not challenging…. it’s both a convinient feature and a low blow once you reach the limit…. not everyone wants to go in ng+ and not everyone wants to make an alt account to make different builds……..i am not even joking, back in 2018 on dark souls 3, i made 4 alt accounts for the total of 48 builds i wanted to do ( and go back to them whenever i felt like using it later )…………there are too much options to pick from and some people really want to enjoy them all

                                      Do people forget that throughout the entirety of Dark Souls 3's life-cycle you could respec infinitely using a very easy to do glitch? No one ever complained about that "ruining the aspect of challenge"

                                      • Anonymous

                                        On your first playthrough, the lack of these can feel quite unforgiving. New players typically want to try out the vast array of spells and weapons immediately upon discovery (I know I did). This can end up leaving you in a bind, and you might feel punished for experimenting with builds.
                                        Though, once you know how many there are, where they are and what build you want to run... There's more than enough.

                                        For any new players, I'd say hang off on spending these immediately and just enjoy what you're capable of using with your current build, level up and invest in a broader stat pool to try out as much as possible (sod optimal stats on your first run). When you have a better idea of what kind of tools you want at your disposal, use these tears to optimise your stat spread to get the most of them.

                                        I agree with the sentiment that making these infinite would take from the game. Elden Ring is an action RPG. Chiselling out your identity through your build is one of the few RP aspects of this game. Giving players the ability to change identity easily and infinitely would detract from having to make real decisions about your role in the lands between.

                                        I understand many players value ease and convenience over these factors, but they're something to consider imo.

                                          The people that want more of these just want to try more builds. The people that don't want more just don't want others to try more builds. It's some "I don't need them so nobody should get them" egocentric thinking. You don't have to use them if you don't want to.

                                            I'd like to take back my last 2 comments. I keep forgetting about PVP because it is irrelevant to me. Speaking only for PVE, these should not be infinite. There are more than enough of them. Live with the choices you make. I can't imagine what it takes to use all 18 of them. I've used maybe 3 in my 300 hours and it doesn't matter anymore because im level 444 so i have 99 in several stats. I don't care for PVP but PVE is fine as it is.

                                              I don't understand the issue here. There are plenty of these. More than enough to try different builds. Making these infinite will only encourage changing styles before a bossfight which removes some of the challenge. If you are a magic user, then fight Rennala as one. You chose this. You want to change? Go and get a larval tear. Theyre not even difficult to get, some are SOLD!!

                                                I understand both sides of the argument. I usually ask for things like this to be infinite, but not this time. This game is supposed to be a challenge. You shouldn't be able to change your stats whenever it's convenient. I like having to go get a new Tear if i need a change. Please don't change this item.

                                                  So, I'm in bit of a pickle, i was horsing around with a meme sleep invasion build online, and when i had my fun, i went ahead and attenpted respecing back to my normal build, i forgot i have used all my larval tears to this point and picked up every one of them during my playthrough. Now I'm stuck with this build and I don't think there is any way I'm gonna beat bosses and start ng with a sleep stick. Thank you fromsoftware for punching me in the guts for just trying out different builds and possibilities and having fun after beating the game.

It's like thinking that giving yourself 80 Vigor is going to do anything other than make you have two extra hits.

                                                      Respec should be free and unlimited at the SoG. And no: multiplayer is already busted (again) like it was in DS3 with gank squads galore you're never, ever going to make it balanced so quit trying and worrying about it since PVP has always and will always be secondary and never was fun to begin with because of everyone cheating no matter how many times FROM balanced it.

                                                            I kinda hope that they include the ability to buy these infinitely in the dlc. Like, they definitely shouldnt cheap, and I understand being able to respec for every boss could be a game-breaker, but this is Elden Ring. We can already break it in half with almost every stat, and it's MASSIVE compared to the other souls games. Having limited respecs there made sense because they were way shorter and making a new character to attempt a run was thus more reasonable. But this games depth and options feel like it's meant to be experimented with, and the limited resources of the older games feel far less challenging and more annoying in this game. That's my thoughts anyway.

                                                                I’ve eaten probably over 10 of these on ng+ to try out different builds. My characters eyes have changed now from the frenzied flame yellow to the same silver color of the larval tear. Also my three finger burns are gone with out using the needle. I’m confused and can’t find anything about it

At the end of the day it's a video game, and being able to experiment with different weapons equates to more fun. Last time I checked video games were designed to provide fun. FromSoft need to get a bit better at learning when to compromise on their vision to enhance the fun aspect. They've already shown they're willing to do this by adding conveniences such as map markers and stake of miraka.

Used to be more of an issue when the game came out, but overabundance of respecs incentivizes switching your build willy-nilly. Which in turn leads to a feeling of not being able to overcome and, in the end, frustration about the game.

                                                                    I know I'm taking something away, so I fully expect to be downvoted when I say this, but that is what I believe.

                                                                      • Anonymous

I've put alot of hours into the game and you know got to the bored point. I always change at the slightest whim of wanting to play a new build. Here's hoping the dlc makes these at least farmable if not purchasable.

                                                                        • Anonymous

I kept getting bored of builds until I realized I only had 3 left. There's so many where to the average person it seems to be way more than you need, but ADHD brain says "just one more build with a cool sword."

                                                                          Honestly, just make them renewable, it wouldn't change much considering there's already 18.

                                                                          • Anonymous

You'll fight a... man it's the corrupted tree spirit thing lol. I got one after killing it. Which was clutch. I'm back playing again since launch and used my last for my new build. Already had all the others and now I can respec back to faith

If you're gonna give us this many per playthrough just make them purchasable/farmable, limiting these as a way to make your level-ups more impactful/important is pointless if you give us 18 chances to get it right...

For PVE the limit is whatever but for PVP, I want to try out lots of different weapons/builds without having to make new characters. Even if they costed Rune Arcs it would be totally fine.

                                                                                        • Anonymous

                                                                                            • Anonymous

I dont even go back for them anymore unless its over 500K and just dump them into upgrade stones that ill never use

                                                                                              • just add an evergaol that can be replayed forever somewhere in the eternal city that houses a mimic tear and drops a larval tear. this way you can fight the mimic tear as much as you want and also get a renewable source of larval tears.

                                                                                                • Anonymous

                                                                                                    Okay I'm gonna just make every statement about glitches with larval tears I've found, including extra gained or lost. Rennala, I just used one then immediately pressed rebirth again after even though I didn't own anymore larval tears, was allowed to use another one that didn't exist. Village of the albinaurics has two glitches, one time it said I got the larval tear but checked my key items and never received it, the second one was not getting on at all, just a rune arc. A third thing is that, if you kill one of the transforming enemies while you die, and you don't get the notify of receiving the tear before you die, don't worry, there's a good chance you'll just have to kill the enemy again (tested on the larval tear bear in consecrated). And the fourth thing, not a glitch but a tip (pretty sure only works for PC and PS4 users with PSPLUS), you can make a build and then when you wanna start a new one just upload your save beforehand so you keep your larval tear when you wanna go back to another one, just by reloading your save (beware PS4 USERS, sometimes it will automatically save your data and ruin it, this is often random and can happen at any time, so make sure you arent depending purely on recovering your save)

                                                                                                    • Anonymous

So I used a larval tear, ran out after, and immediately pressed rebirth again (on accident, was spamming to skip dialogue), and it let me rebirth again, obviously I denied that because I didn't want to do it again, but then after I couldn't, it's like I had an imaginary extra tear that disappeared because I didn't accept it's offer

                                                                                                      • Anonymous

                                                                                                        • I swear everyone cry and complain about this is a pc player and can easily get more with cheat engine. If you want to do 100+ builds all for pvp you can easily save your profits, do the build, go pvp enjoy it, then reload your save when you get bored to try new build. Finish the game get all items, then keep doing this all you want. You can save your Smithing stones and use them everytime you do a new build too.
                                                                                                          If you want PVE then 17 more then enough to go through all the builds twice

                                                                                                          • Anonymous

With all the build possibilities, the 100-300-hour playtime, as well as some of the really hard bosses, giving us only 18 respecs is a straight-up jerk move. DS3 respecs were limited, but DS3 was also much smaller and the experience so much better balanced that the limited amount wasn't much of a problem. If I didn't like a build and was at the limit, it wasn't a big deal to get to NG+. Elden Ring is huge and the balance can be pretty erratic, especially after Leyndell, and we should be able to fine tune as much times as needed (I'm fine with grinding items out, rune prices, etc.).

                                                                                                                Maybe make some of the super annoying enemies that drop nothing of value drop these instead at 10%-5% rate or something (stupidly annoying enemies that aren't really worth fighting at all right now like Runebears, Giant Crayfish, Royal Revenants, Abductors, etc), at least there will be a good reason to fight them instead of just avoiding them completely.

                                                                                                                So people who want to experiment with builds in PVP aren't forced to keep playing into NG+++++ just to get some extra Larval Tears.

You made a shitty build? You have to live with it, simple as that. There should be like one or two respecs per playthrough honestly, mostly for things like adjusting your stats or something, but not infinite, not even the amount already present.

                                                                                                                              Can someone confirm "If all Larval Tears available in the game are used, Rennala will allow you to be reborn infinitely without further Larval Tears. "?

                                                                                                                              I don't want to start NG, I just want to change builds for PVP/invades, so I want to be sure if this info is true or not. Thanks

                                                                                                                              • "If all Larval Tears available in the game are used, Rennala will allow you to be reborn infinitely without further Larval Tears. "
                                                                                                                                Can someone confirm/explain this? This this cover the current game, so I don't need to start NG to get more?

I farmed about 10 last night. I'm pretty sure it was underground in the castle on the way to The Lake of Rot that there's a few of them close to each other.

There is a alter like structure with some demi=humans and I found a tear not listed here. Wanted to share.

                                                                                                                                    • Anonymous

                                                                                                                                      • Anonymous

                                                                                                                                        • Anonymous

                                                                                                                                          • Anonymous

                                                                                                                                            Wish we could get these instead of silly rune arcs. Rune arcs are beneficial in PVE while the larval tear have alot more value for PVP. Makes me more sense to rewards invaders with Larval tears instead of rune arcs.
