Want to know how to respec in Elden Ring? One of the great things about the highly popular fantasy game is that it doesn’t lock you to your chosen Elden Ring build. It may take a while before you can do it, but changing your stats to try out something new is perfectly possible, provided you have some Larval Tears.

So if you want to know about how to respec in Elden Ring, then keep reading – we’ve got all the information you need in order to go from a dual-wielding meele meastro to a master of magic, if you want. One strategy could be to respec your character depending on what Elden Ring bosses you’re stuck on, if you fancy getting real meta with the RPG game.

We’ve also got some advice for you if you’re doing the Sellen quest and suddenly realise that the person you go to in order to respec your character is suddenly missing – don’t panic, things may not be as bad as you think. Here’s what you need to know.

First off, you’ll need a specific Elden Ring Great Rune – the Great Rune of the Unborn. Unlike other Great Runes, this one doesn’t need a Divine Tower to unlock its power, and you don’t need to equip it. You get this particular rune from defeating Rennala, Queen of the Full Moon.

After you’ve defeated her, Rennala will be available in Reya Lucaria Grand Library where you can give her a Larval Tear to access the ‘Rebirth’ function. There are only a finite number of Larval Tears in the open-world game – use The Loadout’s Larval Tear locations guide to help you.

If you decide to side with Sellen during the final part of this Elden Ring quest line, she will occupy the space that Rennala typically resides in. We understand that this may seem alarming, because without Rennala there is no respec option, but never fear. Simply ensure you complete the Sellen quest in full, and then reload the area in the Grand Library where Rennala is found. Regardless of what was going on during the Sellen quest and how you resolved it, Rennala will be back in place once it’s all over.

Sellen herself may or may not have been transformed into a giant boulder at this point – she’ll still be in the room and you can still purchase spells from her, even in her new rock-ness form.
