Great Runes are a source of special passive bonuses in Elden Ring, the Great Rune of the Unborn being one of them and which grants players the special ability of rebirth. The following guide will explain just how to activate the Great Rune of the Unborn in Elden Ring.
How to Get Great Rune of the Unborn
For conquering Rennala, Queen of the Full Moon, you will be rewarded with the Great Rune of the Unborn. You will come upon the boss while exploring the Raya Lucaria Academy.
Rennala will drop the Great Rune of the Unborn upon defeat as well as Remembrance of the Full Moon Queen which can be traded with Enia for Carian Regal Scepter or Rennala’s Full Moon.
How to Use Great Rune of the Unborn to Respec in Elden Ring
The Great Rune of the Unborn works a bit differently compared to the other Great Runes. While the other runes are supposed to be equipped for various benefits, the Great Rune of the Unborn provides the ability to completely reset your character stats.
Just speak with Renalla after defeating her to gain the rune. There is nothing else to do. Unlike other Great Runes which require Rune Arcs to activate, the Great Rune of the Unborn will be activated automatically.
Remember that you will need to have a Larval Tear on you every time you need Renalla to perform a respec.
Rennala will appear in the Grand Library after you have fought her. If you have the Rune in your inventory, you’ll have the option to mess around with the Rebirth menu. This can only be done if you have a Larval Tear, which might be difficult to come by in Elden Ring.
In the Rebirth menu, you may use the tears to clear their levels and reassign them from the beginning. This effectively resets your stats to the starting point of the class you chose at the start of the game. You’ll have to reassign all your stat levels till you reach your present level.
If you’re unsatisfied with your current stats or wish to utilize a certain weapon, this is a good approach to adjust your character’s build. For example, if your Strength stats are high, but your Faith is low, you can allocate points so that Faith ends up being high, your Strength goes down, and vice versa.
