Today’s Elden Ring patch fixes a few lingering problems

Elden Ring patch

Namely, Endure, and Inescapable Frenzy

You know how the saying goes: you fix one thing, you break two more. From Software games are pretty huge, and as a result, tweaks in one patch may have rippling effects on some small part of their games. Elden Ring is one of the biggest projects they’ve undertaken, so another minor Elden Ring patch is a given.

Released this morning, the 1.07.1 patch chiefly deals with Endure (an Ash of War), and nerfs it, following a “greater impact on game balance than expected.” Reading between the lines, the team overbuffed Endure, and allowed it to become one of the most formidable abilities in the game, tanking damage without a sweat (you can see how this played out in the video below). It also addresses Inescapable Frenzy (and an FP consumption bug).

As a bit of housekeeping, a few things that were brought up in the prior patch notes (1.07 – the incantation Flame of the Fell God and Gurranq’s Beast Claw) aren’t actually meant to be charged), so the notes themselves were edited to correctly portray the item’s limitations. The incantation Black Blade will also be getting a follow-up attack when used with a left-handed loadout “in the future.”

The patch is live today on all platforms.

Elden Ring Patch Notes (1.07.1):

hotfix (1.07.1) has been released to adjust the game balance and to fix a bug.

Please download and apply the latest update in order to play the game. We apologize for the inconvenience.

Targeted platforms

PlayStation 4 / PlayStation 5 / Xbox One / Xbox Series X|S / Steam

Major Changes included in the latest patch

Ash of War – Endure

Shortened effect duration. Adjustments made in patch 1.07 had a greater impact on the game balance than expected.

Incantation – Inescapable Frenzy

Fixed a bug where the FP consumption was not properly reduced in patch 1.07.

Additional information

The version number of this update shown at the lower right corner of the Title Screen will be as follows:

App Ver. 1.07

Regulation Ver. 1.07.1

Some changes mentioned in the 1.07 update patch notes posted on Thursday, October 13 were incorrectly mentioned. The incantation Flame of the Fell God and Gurranq’s Beast Claw cannot be charged; patch notes were edited accordingly.
The incantation Black Blade is currently missing its follow up attack when cast from the left hand. This issue will be corrected in a future update.
We will continue to provide game balance updates in the future to improve your ELDEN RING experience.
