A new Elden Ring update buffs a boss that was mistakenly nerfed in a previous update – developer FromSoftware announced this week.
FromSoftware games are beloved in part for their difficulty, and the developers intend on keeping it that way. In patch 1.03, not to be confused with update 1.03, an accidental bug in Elden Ring reduced the power of certain attacks for one of the most challenging bosses in the game.
While the new Elden Ring update buffs a boss that was nerfed in error, that boss was Starscourge Radahn. With the update now available, the dual blade wielding Caelid dweller is restored to his intended state and ready to be challenged properly in Redmane Castle.
Here is a rundown of the update:
