Elden Ring 1.10 Patch: Power Up and Unleash Chaos!

Good news, fellow adventurers! From Software has just released the much-awaited Elden Ring patch, and it packs a punch! Get ready to dive back into the dark fantasy world of Elden Ring, because version 1.10 is now available for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X and S, and Steam platforms. Remember to update the game to enjoy the full online experience, folks!

Now, let’s get to the meat and bones of this update. While not overly drastic, this patch brings a slew of changes specifically aimed at balancing player versus player combat. So, PvP enthusiasts, rejoice! Here are the key highlights:

  • Weapons, spells, and incantations now deal increased poise damage, ensuring you can break your foes’ defense like never before.
  • Certain skills, spells, incantations, and weapon attacks that generate poise provide a boost in poise, making you even sturdier while launching your fierce assaults.
  • Performing attacks with specific skills, spells, and incantations, as well as certain weapon attacks that generate poise, now grant damage reduction. Don’t you just love it when you can minimize the pain while dishing it out?
  • Ever wanted to land those critical hits at wild angles? Well, the patch has extended the critical hit angles, giving you more opportunities to unleash devastating blows.

But wait, there’s more! The patch also brings general balancing adjustments for everyone to enjoy:

  • Critical hits now deal increased damage. It’s time to deliver those stunning finishing moves with even more flair!
  • Recovering from a missed critical hit has become quicker, so you can swiftly regain your footing after an unsuccessful attempt.
  • Here’s a fun twist: attacks after missing a critical hit now deal increased poise damage. Turn your missteps into advantageous opportunities!

Bug fixes and other changes are also part of this update because what’s a patch without squashing pesky bugs? Here’s what’s been tidied up:

  • The patch has corrected an animation bug that caused the attack direction to shift unexpectedly when getting hit while wielding specific poise-generating weapons. No more unintentional sword swings at imaginary foes!
  • Spells and incantations will now properly cause damage while under the effect of certain skills and items. Magic wielding just got a whole lot more reliable.
  • No more exploit shenanigans! The effects of the Sacred Order skill will no longer continue after switching weapons.
  • The patch has also addressed some text issues in certain languages because nobody likes reading gibberish, right?
