Rebirth or Respec in Elden Ring is a mechanic to reset your Character Stats. Respeccing in Elden Ring is often used to make drastic changes to a player's Build, reallocating attribute points to satisfy the stat requirements of new Weapons, Spells, or other such equipment. This page includes all information required for Rebirth, including prerequisites, Locations, and Items.

  • See Stats for a rundown of attribute points, attack power, damage negation, and all other player stats.
  • See Leveling for details on how to level, a breakdown of runes necessary per level, and more.
  • See Runes for details on acquiring runes and rune acquisition boosting equipment.

 

Respeccing in Elden Ring

How to Respec in Elden Ring

After defeating the shardbearer, Rennala Queen of the Full Moon, of Raya Lucaria Academy, you will be able to redistribute all of your allocated attribute points in exchange for a Larval Tear.

 

How Respec works in Elden Ring

With the Rebirth menu, you can spend Larval Tears to clear your levels and reassign them from square one.

You must reassign all levels until you reach your present level and cannot make any attributes lower than their initial level determined by your origin.

The Larval Tear is consumed only after confirming your allocation of stats by responding "Yes" to the prompt of "Undergo rebirth?" - backing out of the menu before finishing will not expend a tear.

Respec Location in Elden Ring

Raya Lucaria Academy is located near the center of Liurnia of the Lakes.

Prerequisite Bosses which must be defeated before being able to respec:

 

Great Rune of the Unborn

Great Rune of the Unborn is a Great Rune dropped by Rennala Queen of the Full Moon upon defeating her.

Unlike the other Great Runes, you do not need to restore its power at Divine Tower, nor can it be equipped and activated with a Rune Arc.

Its significance lies in its description, telling of its ability to "perfect those who have been born anew."

    • Does respeccing have any negative effects gamewise? I mean, does it cut you out of any endings or npc interactions or anything? I wasn’t going to respecc at all for fear of this, but if it doesn’t, I may consider it.

        This has no impact on character design I hope? Got my female character perfect after 8 hours of time in the mirror in Round table. Will this absolve sins?

          SO...I'm a L186 and decided to respec; only I freed the sorcerer chick who apparently took Rennala's place and doesn't respec?

          So what do I do now?

            if you ALT+F4 and hit "Yes" to undergo rebirth at the EXACT same time, it doesn't use a larval tear but rebirths you anyways just like ALT+F4ing Rosaria in DS3.

            This is very unreliable, annoying to do, and has to be frame perfect I think.

            This has worked for me as of 1.04.1

            • Anybody else losing attribute points after rebirth? I respec’d 4 times, playing around with some different builds and have somehow lost 20 attribute points in the process. I hope they provide a fix for this..

                is it safe to back up your save data before respec ? I want to test different builds but I'm a bit concerned if by testing, doing rollbacks and stuff will get me flagged.

                  Something to note that's not listed in the wiki - if you rebirth a few times (i think 5 or more times), Rennala's lines change to thank you for being rebirthed time and time again. If you attempt to respec again immediately, without leaving the menu, you will be able to respec again without using another larval tear.

                    Does rebirthing reset your level points as your class lvl 0? Or for example will it go to wretch lvl 0 even though you’re another class? i.e. vagabond.

                      You can respec after defeating the Third Story Line Boss: Rennala, Queen of the Full Moon. Speak to her after the battle and select "Rebirth". It requires the larvel tears item. You DO NOT have to beat the final boss.

                        I've managed to collect 18 tears on my first playthrough. So there at least 3 more for sure (if not more). Don't remember from where though.

                          WARNING: Rebirthing is currently bugged and you may lose attribute points in the process.
                          I took screenshots from before and after and i lost 2 attribute points due to rebirth. No equipment had been unequipped and reequipped. No buffs had been used.

                            Can you respec after you defeat the final boss in your first playthrough and before you start your second one? Or do you need to go and defeat Rennala in your second journey before you get a chance to respec after the final boss of journey 1?

                                  Is it 100% known if the Rosaria bug works or not on all platforms? Just tried it and im thinking it might've worked (im on Xbox1) but i just wanted to make sure.

                                    Are 15 Larval Tears in ng+ again? This would mean that you can respec 15 times per run. A lot! In DS3 it was 5 times I think.

                                      Anyone know if Larval Tear allows you to change base class? My current base class in not optimal for my build.

                                          It seems you can do the same as DS3.
                                          If you alt+f4 just after confirming the rebirth, the larval tear won't be consumed but the rebirth will be done

                                            It is possible to farm Larval Tears off of the sentient boulders in Nokstella, the Eternal City. They have a fairly high dropchance too.

                                            • You can get the Larval Tears from the big killable spheres in places like Nokstella and Nokron, and if you're a co-op player you can get them as well. You might even be able to farm them this way. We killed the same sphere a second time after host died, and while they didn't get another tear, I did.

                                                You can get one from a surprise ambush from a bear after killing an undead with sword east of Agheel Lake South waygate. He is supervising a group of slaves against a wall by the road.

                                                        Looks like the Ds3 exploit of ALT+F4 after finishing the rebirth no longer works, now it consumes the item but stats remain as they were.

                                                              this should be available from the start or at least very early in the game. its dumb and annoying to have such a basic feature so late in the game.
