Where did my Larval Tears Go?
Elden Ring's Larval Tear locations can be found across The Lands Between. They are found all around the land, such as in Limgrave, Caelid, Siofra River, Nokron, Eternal City, and more.
There are 18 Larval Tears scattered across the Lands Between, allowing you to respec up to 18 times per playthrough. This limit is considerably higher than it has been in past From Software games where it's been as high as 5 per playthrough or sometimes not even being possible to respec at all.
The best place to look for Larval Tears in Elden Ring is the underground cities accessible after defeating General Radahn. Both Nokron and Nokstella contain several Larval Tears from boss fights and elite enemies. The sentient boulders drop them and the Mimic Tear boss fight gives two.
There are a limited number of Larval Tears in the world of Elden Ring - each time you play through the game (or in each New Game+ cycle) there are a healthy handful to pick up, but they don't respawn until you start a new run-through.
You will keep all the Larval Tears in your inventory upon entering New Game Plus. Cannot be dropped for Player Trade.
Unless someone can hard confirm, it is impossible to farm the balls for tears. Not a bug, they only drop once then no more. Total amount of larva tears in a new game is fixed.
- The first is available from Pidia, a merchant that you can find inside Caria Manor. ...
- The second is available from the Nomadic Merchant, who sets up shop in Siofra River, near the brazier puzzle.
All Larval Tear locations in Elden Ring
Larval Tears in Elden Ring are pretty rare, with a total of 18 to be found all across Elden Ring (though some are found in the same location) and no way to farm them, at least that has been discovered yet.
Once you defeat Queen Rennala, you will get her great rune. You will find her sitting in the centre of the room. If you speak to her, she will allow you to either change your character's appearance or offer you a rebirth. Each time you rebirth, you must spend one larval tear.
But, to power the transformation, you need one Larval Tear - a rare and finite resource - each time.
What happens if you give boc a Larval Tear?
If you instead choose the option to give Boc a Larval Tear, he will express his thanks, that he may now be reborn through Rennala. At this point, you must exhaust his dialogue and then reload the area and find he has moved. Note that if you go this route, you will irreversibly doom him to death.
You can do this as often as you like, so long as you have Larval Tears to spend. Larval Tears aren't a very common item, though, so let's talk about where you'll find them.
A hybrid Dexterity and Intelligence build is arguably one of the strongest builds in all of Elden Ring since you get the power of sorcery and the physical damage of Dexterity, as well as the benefit of having a very fast casting speed as well.
You keep all Dragon Hearts, Rune Arcs, Starlight Shards, Memory of Grace, Larval Tears, Spirit Ashes, Ashes of War, Lost Ashes of War, and Celestial Dews you had. These items also respawn in the world.
Rebirth in Elden Ring, one of the most anticipated games of 2022, is a respec mechanic that allows players to reset their character stats and reallocate their attribute points to what they were at the start of the game.
There are 18 Larval Tears scattered across the Lands Between, allowing you to respec up to 18 times per playthrough.
Respeccing costs one Larval Tear. You can reallocate your stats as many times as you wish, just as long as you have a Larval Tear.
Give Boc a Larval Tear
Note that if you go this route, you will irreversibly doom him to death. Upon fast traveling to the Raya Lucaria Grand Library Site of Grace (where Rennala is located), you will find Boc, now in his rebirthed human form.
In past Souls games, the enemy difficulty usually caps out at around NG+7 or NG+9, but you're still able to begin new runs past that. While we have yet to test that in Elden Ring, it's likely the process works the same. Venture to New Game Plus to earn more runes from defeating enemies.
