FromSoftware has released a new patch for the extremely successful and difficult open world RPG Elden Ring on Tuesday. You can see the long list of patch notes at Bandai Namco’s websitebut update 1.04 has some important changes: Dogs that bleed too hard are nerfed and the illusion wall is gone.
Test YouTuber Zullie the Witch ran the patch on Tuesday and found that the over-powered Rotten Strays weren’t as tough as previous incarnations. Before updating, Bleeding dogs have a glitch whereby the game can inflict massive damage on your character’s health due to a bug related to their attack animation – a bug that makes the Rotten Stray even stronger than some bosses. Now, they are fixed. And we don’t mean “fixed”, as in, “take them to the vet”. Zullie the witch demonstrated the changes in this video.
Zullie also notes another important change: mysterious illusion wall no longer disappear. In March, players discovered a fake wall in Volcano Manor that disintegrates when you hit it 50 times. At first, players weren’t sure if the developers were using it to hide secrets or if it was just a bug. After patching, the wall does not sag to reveal another room. So it seems that illusory, but destructible, walls are just a clever way for developers to hide an unwanted room and not a door to great secrets. than.
