Elden Ring Renna Not Appearing at Church of Elleh Solution

Renna is one of the most important Elden Ring characters which you’ll meet in the early game. She will present you with the Spirit Calling Bell, a key item that will grant you the ability to summon spirits from ashen remains. Unfortunately, it appears that a number of players are currently struggling with finding her, as Renna doesn’t appear at the Church of Elleh, where you should otherwise meet her for the first time. Can this bug be fixed? Here are a few possible solutions.

Elden Ring Renna not Spawning at Church of Elleh Solution

Finding Renna in Elden Ring early game is crucial, but at the moment some players are unable to find her where she usually spawns – at the Church of Elleh. Normally, Renna will appear at the Church after you talk with Melina and get the Spectral Steed summoning ability.

Normally, you would first meet Rennaat the Church of Elleh

Nonetheless, for many players, Renna simply doesn’t show up at the Church of Elleh even after they acquire the Spectral Steed. Fast travelling back and forth doesn’t work, and going back to the Church of Elleh during different times of day doesn’t work either. Currently, it seems that there is only one workaround that actually works. In order to trigger Renna to spawn at the Church of Elleh, you’ll need to let the Tree Sentinel kill you once.

The Tree Sentinel is an exceptionally nasty early game boss which roams near a path that leads to the Church of Elleh. You might have already met this towering knight in his shiny golden armour. Just let him kill you, and check the church. Renna should now appear there, and you can proceed with acquiring the Spirit Calling Bell item.

Unfortunately, while many players confirmed that this has fixed their issue with Renna not appearing at the Church of Elleh, for some even this doesn’t work. If it didn’t work for you, don’t worry. You can still get the Spirit Calling Bell in an alternative way. Head to the Roundtable Hold, and find Twin Maiden Husks and you will be able to purchase the bell from the vendor!

Very early in your exploration of Elden Ring world you will find out that you need to prepare your character for different tasks. You'll need to learn how to use Ashes of War, how to two-hand weapons, or use magic spells during the course of your adventures. Many secrets are also waiting for you, such as, a hostile NPC Sellen that doesn't let you see her shop, an invisible man in a bush, or a huge turtle with a bell that lets you duplicate some very important items.

    I’ve already defeated the tree sentinel, and this quest line is crucial for a memory stone. How else could this be fixed?

        I had this problem, keep playing the game and she’ll appear in a location in Luirnia after you beat the boss in Caelid

          “A location in Luirnia” Does this refer to Ranni’s rise? Or does she appear somewhere else beforehand? I never got Renna at the church at the start, have already killed that first tree sentinel, and killed General Radahn in Caelid. Still can’t seem to find her anywhere.
