How to level up in Elden Ring

How to level up in Elden Ring

Elden Ring isn’t always clear on things – we can help.

It’s fair to say that Elden Ring is a masterpiece, but it’s fair to say that what makes it so special is that it doesn’t hold your hand as you progress through the game. .

There are countless systems that you will need to learn on your own (or with the help of guides like this one online), giving a real sense of accomplishment as you manage to improve in a variety of areas. .


However, a fundamental question you might have in your first hours of play is how to level up your character. Here’s how.

Unlike other games from FromSoftware, there are a few hurdles to clear at the start of Elden Ring before you can level up for the first time.

After emerging in Limgrave, there are two Sites of Grace (save points) that trigger a visit from Melina, a companion you will have for much of the game:

  • Front door
  • Lake Agheel North

If you rest at either of these two locations, a short scene will play where Melina will meet you and offer you a deal. If you accept this offer (and you should, unless you’re doing some sort of challenge), she’ll offer to convert your runes into strength. She will also give you a handy steed – Torrent, an indispensable companion for moving around the huge world of Elden Ring.

Once you’ve done this, each time you rest on a grace site in the world of Elden Ring, you’ll see the “Level Up” option appear.

Upon entering this section, you will see your list of stats and can increase each of them by the number of levels of runes you currently have in your possession.

This should get you started on your leveling process, but if you find the early stages of the game a bit confusing, be sure to check out our full beginner tips and tricks article. You will find many tips there that should help you get started without too many obstacles.

Once you get a bit further into the game, if you feel like you’ve leveled up a bit haphazardly, you’ll have the chance to respect your character and create a more cohesive build – check out our guide of respect in Elden Ring for more details on this process.
