Leveling in Elden Ring: How to increase your stats

Leveling in Elden Ring: How to increase your stats

Even if you get a lot of runes in Elden Ring you will need to unlock the actual leveling and here's how you can do just that

Leveling in Elden Ring: How to increase your stats

Leveling in Elden Ring is not a given, not that its hard but you'll still need to unlock it. You'll do so just as you unlock your mount so two birds with one stone.

Unlocking Melina and leveling up in Elden Ring

Exiting the starting area, dash towards the Site of Grace, then follow the light towards the Church and its second Grace Site. Continue to follow the light, heading northeast along the road, you will come across some soldiers. Avoid the ruins on the right and go directly to rest at the grace in front of the large doors. This will bring up Melina , the person in charge of levels. Accept her offer, which will unlock the ability to level up, and as a bonus, she'll hand you the Spectral Horse Whistle.

If you refuse her offer by mistake, don't panic, you can select the "Trade" option on the Grace Point, in order to make her reappear. The fact that it is possible to refuse to make a pact with Melina could have interesting implications for the full game, for example a secret ending designed for the most skilled players or in NG+?

Unlock the round table

As you continue your adventures, Melina will reappear and offer to take you to the game's central hub, the Grace Table, also known as the Round Table. To do this, you either have to explore a lot or kill Margit the Fallen.
