Ways To Level Up In Elden Ring
You are maidenless until you encounter Melina. You will play as a maiden after her suggestion, Melina also begs you to collect Runes for the purpose of converting them into power. Making a deal with her allows you to Elden Ring max level up at any available Site of Grace.
You will have to spend more Runes if you upgrade. Defeating enemies, Bosses, and exploring the Lands Between are ways you can get more Runes. Dying will cause you to drop all runes in possession, but you can get them back by returning to where you died. Note that if you let yourself die before getting your lost runes back, you'll never get them back.
