Leveling up in Elden Ring isn’t available from the start, but luckily, you can unlock it early on by following this short guide!
The very first thing you need to do is head to one of two sites of lost grace near Gatefront Ruins: Agheel Lake North or Gatefront.
By resting at a site of grace, you will be visited by Melina who will offer you an accord: she will act as a Finger Maiden which will allow you to level up among other things, if you agree to take her to the foot of the Erdtree. Accepting her offer will allow you to level up. Now, any time you rest at a site of grace, there will be the option to Level Up in the site of grace menu.
If you already encountered Melina and refused her help, you can change your mind at any point by speaking to her at a site of grace.
Where to Get Your Horse
At the same time as you’re unlocking the ability to level up, Melina will also give you the Spectral Steed Whistle. This item will allow you summon Torrent, a mount with the ability to double-jump, which will come in handy to navigate through the vast open world and get to hard to reach places.
If you have any questions or need further help with meeting Melina and unlocking Torrent, let us now in the comments below.
This is interesting! But it could be more. like for example good farming spots and were to find low risk high reward enemies.
Thank you for the feedback, that’s a great suggestion! Once we’ve knocked out the main walkthrough this is definitely a guide we’d like to expand upon.
Hi DanielD, First of all thank you a million times for the thorough walkthrough of this games. I use it for all locations. Do you know when the next section will be available. I am assuming it is Mt germir? Looking forward to your answer.
Hi Dennis! Glad to hear the walkthroughs have been helpful. You’re correct that Mt. Gelmir is one of the next ones on our list — since we’ve got both myself and Spannah working on the walkthroughs, we’re currently working on walkthroughs for both Mt. Gelmir and the Mountaintops of the Giants. With any luck, we’ll have the first part of both walkthroughs published by the end of the day tomorrow!
