Elden Ring Patch 1.07 Brings Separate Balancing Changes to PvP

Patch 1.07
Patch 1.07 FromSoftware

Thanks to developer FromSoftware, Elden Ring has received quite a major update today. Patch 1.04 is now live on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC. It brings a ton of balancing changes to weapons, skills, spells, and incantations.

One cool thing that this patch does is it brings separate damage scaling for PvP, which won’t take effect in single-player or cooperative mode.

In PvP mode, the power of Ashes of War has been lowered across the board, minding a few exceptions. Except for long-ranged weapons and skills, the poise damage of every weapon’s normal attack has been improved.

The highlights of the patch are mentioned below.

PvP Exclusive Balance Adjustments
  • Increased stamina attack power in PvP for all attacks against guarded foes, except for long-ranged weapons.
  • The power of the following incantations in PvP has been decreased:
    • Dragonfire / Agheel's Flame / Glintstone Breath / Smarag's Glintstone Breath / Rotten Breath / Ekzykes's Decay / Dragonice / Borealis's Mist / Unendurable Frenzy

    • Celebrant's Sickle / Nox Flowing Sword / Shotel / Eclipse Shotel / Vulgar Militia Shotel / Scythe / Grave Scythe / Halo Scythe / Winged Scythe
