The Two Ways To Change Your Appearance In Elden Ring

As in any good open world RPG, a lot of players will likely spend their first 20-30 minutes of "Elden Ring" just working on creating their character. The game's character creation menu operates similarly to other FromSoftware titles like "Dark Souls" and "Bloodborne," offering players a variety of options to fine-tune each and every aspect of their character. Some of the more obscure customization sliders include the option to change the size of your character's head, the ability to alter custom burn marks your character may pick up during the game, and even a slider that controls how much body hair your character has.


The character sliders for "Elden Ring" are incredibly in depth, and many players will want to take the time to experiment in that menu for a while, just to make sure their Tarnished looks exactly how they'd like. That said, there's always a chance that you'll wind up growing bored of your character's appearance later on in your lengthy playthrough. If that's the case, then you'll be happy to hear that there are two distinct ways to change your appearance later on in the game, and both methods are incredibly simple.

Players can change their appearance anytime using these two methods

The first (and by far the easiest) method by which players can alter their appearance is found in Roundtable Hold, which serves as the hub world for "Elden Ring." Within Roundtable Hold, players can make their way over to the room where Fia, the Deathbed Companion resides (a.k.a. the woman who offers to hug you). Inside Fia's room is the Clouded Mirror Stand, an ornate mirror that players can interact with to alter their appearance at any time. The only things you cannot change in the mirror are your character's gender and starting class, but other than that it appears that the customization menu in the mirror is essentially identical to the one with which you start the game.


The second option involves defeating the demigod boss Rennala, Queen of the Full Moon. After defeating her, she will become non-hostile to the player, and offer you the ability to re-roll your stats and change your appearance. Re-rolling your stats will cost the player one Larval Tear, but changing your appearance (which works just like when you use the mirror) costs nothing — and can be done over and over again. One has to wonder why the developers included both of these methods in the game, but it's still nice to know that no character is locked into looking the same for their entire playthrough.
