Dark Souls III patch ‘adjusts’ Greatswords, provides several fixes

Mostly area-specific glitches

Bandai Namco has just updated Dark Souls III with a small hotfix (1.03.1 on PC, 1.04 on consoles) that clears up a few glitches. Most notably, problems that arise when players complete the game and have trouble using specific items in the Cathedral of the Deep, Farron Keep, and Road of Sacrifices.

Then there’s a few balance tweaks, with changes to the Dancer’s Enchanted Sword, Farron Flashsword, Soul’s Greatsword, and Greatswords in general. The community postulates that most of these will be getting a buff to bring them inline with the meta dominating Dark Sword.

Enjoy the hotfixes, as it’s all we’re going to get until the first DLC drops in the Fall!

  • Performance adjustment for Greatsword.
  • Battle performance adjustment for Dancer’s Enchanted Sword and Winged Knight Twinaxes.
  • Performance adjustments for Soul’s Greatsword and Farron Flashsword.
  • Fix for issue where multiple items become impossible to use at Road of Sacrifices, Farron Keep, Cathedral of the Deep after clearing the game.
