In Elden Ring, you will have the option to upgrade your various Attributes, and these Attributes are essentially your stats, simple things like Endurance and or Strength. These Attributes, when leveled, could increase your max amount of life and or Stamina- depending on the Attribute you choose. Stats are upgraded by using the Runes you acquire as you progress through the game, defeating bosses and more.
