Elden Ring DLC Update Now Easier for All Players

Jun 26, 2024 9:42 AM

Elden Ring: Shadow of the Erdtree has received its first balance update, aiming to make the earlier stages of the DLC more accessible for players. The calibration significantly enhances the Scadutree blessings and Revered Spirit Ashes, easing the challenge posed by early bosses like Rellana and the Divine Beast Dancing Lion. This adjustment responds to player feedback claiming the initial difficulty was too steep. The update is designed so that, despite these early-game boosts, the latter parts of the DLC remain challenging, maintaining the game's difficulty curve. This tweak accommodates players seeking to explore the expansive map without excessive backtracking.
