Elden Ring is a FromSoft game, so people who haven’t played the game yet are wondering if they did respawning differently than other games. Sekiro is one of the only FromSoft games that changed the formula by adding the second-life mechanic, but does Eldin Ring have anything like that? To keep it simple, it is very close to how Dark Souls does respawning.
No, bosses don’t respawn in Elden Ring after you defeat them. It is a very simple and helpful mechanic that makes it so you don’t need to go through the same pain of fighting the same boss over and over again. Respawning is the same as other games from FromSoft. Once, you sit down at a Lost Site of Grace, all regular enemies will be respawned.
Just be glad that FromSoft didn’t make the game in a way that made you fight the boss every time you need to get through an area again. That would be absolutely annoying and would definitely make a lot of people rage quit the game entirely.
What respawns when you rest at a Site of Grace?
There is actually a lot that happens when you rest at a Site of Grace. All of the main and elite enemies will respawn and patrol the same areas they were programmed to go to. The best part of it all is the fact that any bosses with a health bar, and even some mini-boss enemies, won’t respawn at all.
It sucks sometimes though because they are your main source of Runes so if you want to level up faster, you need to defeat all the bosses or find a really good Rune farming area. If you are curious about a good Rune farming area, go to the Palace Approach Ledge-Road in the Lake of Blood underground area for a ton of Runes.
Here is a list of everything that respawns when you rest at a Site of Grace:
- Most enemies will respawn when player rests at a Site of Lost Grace
- Players Flasks of Crimson/Cerulean Tears and Flask of Wondrous Physick will be refilled
- Resting at a Site of Lost Grace will restore players HP and FP and heal any status ailments
- When player dies, they will be resurrected at the last Site of Lost Grace they rested at
What can you do at a Site of Grace?
There is actually soo much you can do at a Site of Grace. It allows you to do pretty much anything you want, and without it, it would be extremely difficult to do everything one of these allows you to do.
