Elden Ring Fans Rejoice As Dreaded Bloodhound Step Nerfed In Enormous Gameplay Update

Elden Ring Fans Rejoice As Dreaded Bloodhound Step Nerfed In Enormous Gameplay Update ...

Elden Ring hasn't had much interest in the game, yet the patch 1.06 is out. Among the improvements are the ability to now co-op or invasions in many locations at once, as well as a larger invasion area. There's a new mysterious NPC, though in typical FromSoftware fashion no word on where to find this useful person.

Bloodhound Step, a popular Ash of War skill that allows you to dodge attacks at high speeds while becoming invisible, has been reduced, indicating that it is less effective. However, FromSoftware has altered everything about low carry loads, including the ability to roll farther when you're not carrying much, which is quite significant for anyone who plays in multiplayer. Recently, this skill was one of the most-cited reasons for feeling that the multiplayer was broken and unbalanced.

And you can be certain that players are all happy about this: nearly every reply under the Twitter announcement commemorates the death of Bloodhounds.

A second hugely-requested change is a Corpse Piler downturn. The original weapon's ability is the X shape, which leaves behind a trail of blood, and fire damage to boot. The actual blade also does less damage, although just a tiny bit, according to the patch notes.

Put Pikachus electric-type capabilities to good use by charging him as a phone charger. Simply place your phone capable of wireless charging on Pikachus cute little cranium and let him do his thing. His cheeks will begin to glow. And look how adorable it is.

While you wait for DLC, here are 8 strategies to make Elden Ring feel brand new.

The Astrologer's favorite Glintstone Pebble has now reduced its damage, but it does go farther than before. It was fairly inexpensive to obtain, and it made horseback witchcraft much easier. Despite finding a wide variety of more powerful spells, I had the Pebble equipped for about 75% of my playthrough.

Bonk players should be quite content as well, since the patch improves Greatswords and Great Hammers a lot more. Charge attacks go faster when you hit them, and axes are faster outright.
