Robustness is a defensive stat in Elden Ring. Like all the other stats in the game, it can be unclear as to what Robustness actually does. As it turns out, Robustness has a very straightforward effect on your player.

    What Happens if You Increase Your Robustness Stat?

    When you raise your Robustness, you increase your resistance to Hemorrhage and Frostbite.

    Hemorrhage (also known as blood loss) and frostbite are status effects. These can be inflicted upon you by other enemies in PvP, or by various enemies and bosses in the game.

    When your Robustness stat is high, the hemorrhage and frostbite status effects affect you less. It will take more attacks to fully fill the status effect bars, thus making you less susceptible to the status effects themselves.
