How many times can you respec in Elden Ring?

Elden Ring offers the flexibility to completely alter your build at any moment using the respec system. Whether transitioning from a pure Strength character wielding a massive greatsword to incorporating Dexterity and wielding something like the Bloodhound’s Fang, the process takes only minutes.

You’re likely already familiar with the process of respeccing in Elden Ring, which involves using a Larval Tear after defeating Rennala at the Academy of Raya Lucaria. However, you might wonder if there’s a limit to how many times you can respec your character. Below, you’ll find the answer to that question.

Is there a Respec limit in Elden Ring?

Indeed, there is a limit to the number of times you can respec your character’s stats, primarily due to the finite availability of Larval Tears in Elden Ring—only 18 in total. Consequently, you can visit Rennala to reset your stats a maximum of 18 times. However, acquiring all 18 Larval Tears is itself a considerable challenge.

Fortunately, players can circumvent this limit, as mentioned earlier. In essence, there’s technically no cap on respeccing as long as you save your game just before using a Larval Tear with Rennala. By doing so, especially before significant boss encounters, you can respec, experiment with different builds, and then revert any changes by reloading your previous save file.

For instance, prior to battling a major boss like Malenia, you can visit Rennala, save your progress, use a Larval Tear to respec, engage in the fight, and subsequently reload your saved file if you wish to undo any alterations. This approach allows unlimited respecs without consuming additional Larval Tears.

It’s advisable to employ this strategy in the late stages of Elden Ring. Reloading an old save file after defeating bosses just to freely respec would be counterproductive. Instead, utilize Larval Tears for respeccing until the late game, then implement the save strategy to refine your build during the final stages.
