How to Revive NPCs in Elden Ring

Want to know how you can revive NPCs in Elden Ring?

Similar to other FromSoftware titles, Elden Ring allows players to attack most NPCs they encounter in the vast world of The Lands Between. However, this action comes with some consequences as well. 

Whether you intentionally attack an NPC out or accidentally press the attack button during a conversation, you might still be able to roll back your actions. 

If you’ve accidentally killed an important NPC in your gameplay, you can still revive them. 

However, be warned that not every NPC in the game can be resurrected, which comes on a character-by-character basis. If you find yourself in need of an NPC you mistakenly attack, you can try this last-ditch effort to make up for it. 

Today, we will show you how you can revive NPCs in Elden Ring. 

Let’s dive right in!

Revive Process Overview

In Elden Ring, players have the opportunity to ask for forgiveness, making NPCs you have angered become friendly with you once again or even bringing them back from the dead. However, not all characters in the game can be revived.

Nonetheless, this method should work most of the time if you just angered an NPC and not actually killing it. 

To perform this method, you will first have to go to the Church of Voes and use Celestial Dew at Lady Rennala’s statue to request Absolution. If you’ve made wrongdoings, you can follow through with the procedure and hopefully patch things over with the NPC you’ve enraged. 

Reaching Chruch of Vows

There are several paths available in Elden Ring that will lead you to the Church of Vows. However, the most common route is by taking the teleporter located inside the Raya Lucaria Academy.

After working your way through the Red Wolf of Radagon boss encounter in Raya Lucaria dungeon, you will gain access to the Debate Hall Site of Grace. 

This is the area that you should start from to reach the Church of Vows. From here, head outside and go to the right-hand side of the area, where you’ll see a large winding staircase.

Now, jump onto the beams that connect the stairs to the land you are on and work your way onto the steps. While traversing the path, keep an eye out for large boulders that periodically roll down the stairs. 

While they can be easy to avoid, many players get caught off guard during their first attempt. 

Once up the stairs, you should be inside a room with two exits. One should lead you north and the other to the east. Take the exit on the right to find a teleporter on a balcony. 

Use the teleporter to get transported to the Church of Vows. However, keep in mind that there is no teleporter available in the Church of Vows that will take you back to the initial teleporter you have used. 

This means that you will have to fast travel back to the Debate Hall Site of Grace if you wish to continue with the Legacy Dungeon. 

Once you are in the Church of Vows, rest at the Site of Grace and speak to the giant tortoise, Pasture Miriel, to get the rundown of the place. After that, you are now ready to request Absolution. 

Requesting Absolution

Before you can actually request Absolution in Elden Ring, you must first meet several requirements. First, you must have Celestial Dew and an angered or killed NPC. Otherwise, you’ll be greeted by a “You Don’t Need Absolution” prompt. 

However, if you have committed heinous crimes in The Lands Between, you will see an option to “Atone”, which should Absolve you of any sins you may have committed. 

As we’ve mentioned, this process should make every NPC you’ve enraged return to normal, unless the reason they are upset with you has something to do with a certain questline you’ve followed. 

In addition, some NPCs will also come back to life if you’ve killed them by accident. However, there’s no way to tell who can be and can’t be revived. 

That is how you can revive NPCs in Elden Ring. If you have questions and other concerns, don’t hesitate to leave a comment below, and we’ll do our best to get back to you as soon as possible.
