Dialogue in Elden Ring: Rennala, Queen of the Full Moon

Initial encounter

  • Where did ye flee, my sweetings?
    Come out from whence ye hide. There are books and light aplenty.
    Dither not; come out say I!
    Or will ye be gravestones? To be better born anew?


  • Ah...thou... Is it thy wish to be born anew?
    To become a sweeting, reborn of my beloved egg?

Leaving without respeccing

  • Be not alarmed, nor afeard. I would birth thee as a sweeting, fair and fine.

Visiting after rejecting rebirth

  • Ah...thou... Art thou now assured of thy want, to be born anew?

Accepting rebirth

  • Now, bear this sweeting into like anew.

Visiting after accepting rebirth

  • Ah, it seemeth thou'rt a sweeting rather fair.
    And if thou wert born anew once more, thou wouldst be fairer still.
    Ye will be countless born, forever.
  • Ah...thou... Is it thy wish to yet again be born anew?

During Sellen's quest while Rennala is behind the bookcase

  • Where did ye flee, my sweetings?
    Come out, from whence ye hide. Of the dark, be not afeard.
    My beloved egg is with us. Come out, I prithee.

      i go to visit her and sellen and all she does is ask if i want to be reborn. no, rennala, i don't want you to be my mother, stop asking.... (yes i get respec is her entire function i just think this is funny)

        theres a new voiceline! i only screenshot part of it though, and this is what she says: "My thanks. For being born of my beloved egg, time and time again."

        • Anonymous

          I beleive there's a custom voiceline that plays if you respec your stats to have 70 or more intelligence. When I did for the first time there was a voiceline not listed that she said, thanking me for letting her rebirth me with the egg.

            Calling it, that egg messed her up, was azure color eyed now golden, kept her in bubble, controlling sweetings brian ie singing, anti aging

              As Elden Ring is heavily inspired by Mythology, supposed it's fitting to say that Marika is Aphrodite, Radagon is Eros, and Rennala is Psyche. Although this one's not ending happily.

                I’m glad she didn’t die as her story is pretty sad already. She loves Radagon who leaves her, even throwing away the gift she gave him to the misbegotten. All her children except maybe Ranni go mad during the shattering and her school basically stops functioning. She sits in a lonely library until you show up.

                  I often fancy thinking of an ending where you marry Rennala and refuse becoming Elden Lord and you spend your days with Rennala just exploring outside the lands between and frequently hollering at the sweetings when they get into things they shouldn’t.

                    Not to be mean, but Rennala has cross eyes, she also has small head/face and seemsly weird long limbs. It's great she found the moon to enchant everyone. But can't stop wondering is she ever felt ugly like boc, also she's the last of her kind/carian/orphan (pre-cannon).

                      Im not sure if my memory of a few minutes ago is faulty but I believe she has more dialogue for being reborn saying born sweeting and fair and thanks you for being born from the egg again

                        This is incorrect RENNALA, QUEEN OF THE FULL MOON does not leave the room if you side with sellen she is behind the pillar and you can receive unique dialog with her as well. She will be crying and asking where her sweetings are

                            Rennala is a very underrated character. People seek her presence for a very specific purpose, to be reborn, but no one stays talking to her like I do. I can spend almost an hour gazing at her pale, beautiful skin, like the moon itself, dreaming of being that worm she is holding so lovingly. Really, people should learn to contemplate the game designs and not think about fighting all the time like apes. The characters deserve affection, especially the pure ones. Rennala, hold me like the big little worm that I am.

                              I see alot of people misunderstanding this character.
                              Sellen can't kill her. Neither can you, you have actually never even fought her.

                              The version of Rennala you fight is an illusion created by her daughter so no one would harm her.
                              So when Sellen believed she killed her. she actually just fought the same illusion we did.
                              But if you rest at the bonfire you see her turn into a rock.

                              I honestly don't think its the work of Rennala she doesn't seem to do anything hostile against anyone if it isn't her service.
                              So i imagine when Sellen fought Rennala she got consumed by her own spells and had a rebound effect that caused her transformation after we talk to her.

                                During Sellen's short "takeover" at the great library, Rennala can still be found in the corner of the room, available for Rebirth.
                                She takes her spot back when you finish Sellen's quest entirely (Recommended to read about it before ending it, most quests end up in a bad way but this one is really ****ed up)

                                    Since I completed Sellens quest line. Sellen is now in the center of the boss room. Where the hell did my respec lady go??

                                      Does the Cosmetics menu use a larval tear upon accepting changes? I assume it does but it doesn't ask for a larval tear before opening the menu like respec does.
