Respec with Rennala.

How to Respec in Elden Ring

To respec in Elden Ring, you’ll need to beat Rennala, Queen of the Full Moon who is found in the Academy of Raya Lucaria in Liurnia of the Lakes. When you defeat her in battle, you’ll then be able to speak to her about ‘rebirth’. It will cost one Larval Tear, which are a rare find - check out our list of all Larval Tear locations below.

When you respec, you’ll be able to redistribute your points wherever you fancy. Your base class cannot be changed but you can change your level up points.
