If you want to level up more quickly in Elden Ring, you should think about traveling to some of the best Rune farming spots the game has to offer.
The majority of players will want to figure out how to farm the Elden Ring runes they’ll need to level up their character as quickly as possible, even though there are some gamers who are dedicated enough to try to beat Elden Ring without ever leveling up their character.
The very encouraging news is that it’s actually not that difficult to earn the Runes you’ll need to level up in Elden Ring, which is something else to look forward to. You should be able to find plenty of opportunities to pick up some additional Runes and grow your character as long as you are somewhat comfortable with fighting enemies and navigating the game’s sometimes dangerous world. As long as you have this level of comfort, you should have no trouble finding these opportunities.
On the other hand, if you want to farm runes as quickly as possible while also leveling your character as efficiently as possible along the way, then the following are a few helpful tips that should assist you in accomplishing both of those goals.
How to Achieve Higher Levels in Elden Ring
To advance a level in Elden Ring, all you have to do is go to three different Sites of Grace that are located in the open world of the game. Sites of Grace that are located inside of dungeons do not count toward this objective. When you have visited the third Site of Grace, Melina will approach you and offer to help you advance your character’s level. If you accept her offer, you will be able to do so. You will be able to level up whenever you want after that by simply going to a Site of Grace and gaining experience there.
A number of players have mentioned that they were unable to see Melina until they traveled to the Gatefront Site of Grace before they could finally do so. Others have claimed that the Sites of Grace located close to Agheel Lake were the location where they first saw her. If you just can’t seem to get her to show up, you might want to try going to the Gatefront Site of Grace that is located close to the location of the game. This is the “third site” location that appears to be the most common and “safest” place for her to show up, so it’s worth a shot if you’ve tried everything else.
The process of leveling up in Elden Ring requires you to spend runes at a Site of Grace, and the cost of doing so increases each time you make a change to one of your character’s statistics. The cost of raising one stat to a higher level is not distinct from the cost of raising any other stat to the same level. This is a point that should be kept in mind at all times. Therefore, if you choose to improve your Vigor the first few times that you level up, it does not mean that it will be more cost effective to improve your Faith or any other statistic the following time that you level up instead.
Because of this, it is essential to have a solid understanding of which stats are optimal for your particular class or build, and to place as much of your focus as you can on improving those stats. Although it is certainly possible to improve your weakest statistics into strengths, doing so is a very costly process that will cost you quite a few Runes and require you to give up the opportunity to improve upon some of your greatest natural assets. Despite these drawbacks, it is still possible to improve your stats. Therefore, it is generally easier to focus on your character’s “strengths” and raise those to endgame levels before devoting points to weaker areas that will enable additional playstyles. This is because focusing on your character’s “strengths” and raising those to endgame levels requires less effort.
Having said that, you really are free to level up your Elden Ring character pretty much however you see fit, and there are no restrictions on how you can do so. You can make things a little easier on yourself by choosing the “right” starting class for your preferred endgame build, but if you find that you’ve come to prefer a particular playstyle as you go along, you can always level your character to better support your new favorite strategy. This can make things a little easier on yourself, but it won’t make things a whole lot easier.
Respecifying Your Character in Elden Ring and What It Means
In Elden Ring, you have the ability to change your stat priorities, but you won’t be able to do so until a little bit further into the game.
You will be given the Great Rune of the Unborn once you have defeated Rennala, Queen of the Full Moon, the primary boss that can be found at the Academy of Raya Lucaria in Liurnia of the Lakes. It is not necessary for you to be carrying this Elden Ring Items in order to change the characteristics of your character; however, it does appear that you must first acquire it in order to activate the respec function.
Once you have obtained that Rune, you should travel to the Grand Library Site of Grace. Once there, you will find a non-player character (NPC) who will offer to rebalance your character’s statistics. However, in exchange for their assistance, they will request that you pay them a Larval Tear, which is quite a disappointing demand to make considering how uncommon Larval Tears are.
You have a small chance of discovering Larval Tears in chests and other open-world locations, but you have a much better chance of acquiring one by vanquishing powerful foes. There are some foes that can be found in the vicinity of the area known as Lirunia of the Lakes that have a chance of dropping them, but players are still searching for the most effective ways to “farm” these drops or at least acquire a couple of them at will.
