In Elden Ring, there are a ton of places that are safe spots that let you just chill out for the next time you have to go out and get destroyed. The Sites of Grace and the Roundtable Hold are the 2 main places that make you feel safe, but are they really safe? One major question that new people ask is if you can get attacked while resting at a Site of Grace?
You can’t get attacked by anything when you are resting at a Site of Grace. You can get attacked if you are being followed by enemies and if they are close to you, you might not be able to rest at it. If you are lighting a SIte of Grace for the first time, you will need to defeat the enemies before you can rest at it.
Once you actually rest at it and reset everything in the world, you will be perfectly safe until you get up and go near enemies. You can’t be attacked while you are sitting there so you are safe until you get up and go over to danger. Obviously, the Roundtable Hold is a very safe place until you drop down into the large room where you get invaded by that really annoying NPC.
There are a few instances where the Roundtable isn’t safe, but that is very rare and most of the time you won’t have to worry about anything when you return. There are also a few other spots that are safe, including the Volcano Manor, unless you go upstairs to the dining area. All these areas have invaders, but the rest are all safe.
Why do Sites of Grace reset the world?
If you have ever played another FromSoft game, you will know that’s how it works in every game they made. Dark Souls and Demon Souls have the Bonfires, Bloodborne has the Lamps, and Sekiro has the Idols. Each one resets the world when you rest at them and the SItes of Grace is Elden Ring’s version of that.
If you don’t like it, then get used to it because that is how the Soulsbournekiro mechanic works. Elden Ring took a lot of inspiration from all the previous games so you really need to follow how the game works or you won’t have too much fun with it. Yes, it can be annoying, but they didn’t want the game to be too easy.
Bosses don’t respawn whenever you defeat them so you don’t have to worry about that. There are also mini-bosses in the world that also doesn’t respawn so it’s not like it resets the world back to its original place. Shortcuts you unlock will also stay open so you don’t have to worry about opening them again.
When you see a Site of Grace, make sure to light it so you can spawn there whenever you want. Try to explore the world so you have safe spots all over the place. You will need to have respawn beacons all over as well so you don’t have any issues getting from place to place.
