Contents: The most important innovations of patch 1.06

At 44.1GB in size, Elden Ring Patch 1.06 packs a lot. We have summarized the most important changes and innovations in the following bullet point list for you:

  • nerfs: The Balance of the Ashes of War BloodhoundStep and the katana Rivers of Blood have been adjusted. The ability and weapon were popular and feared among numerous players, especially in PvP. Skilled players could use the Ashes of War’s overpowered functions to gain unfair game advantages.
  • Flagging illegal items: Some trolls in Elden Ring made fun of provoking a soft ban on other players using items that were actually removed from the game. Elden Ring now warns you of such items with a clear ERROR-Labelling.
  • Co-op and PvP: Patch 1.06 gives you the choice of your Co-op CallsEsports Extrasfor Summoning Reserves, whether you want to travel to nearby or distant areas. The same goes for invading other players, except Moghwyn Palace.
  • New NPC: If you don’t like PvP, there’s now a new NPC in Elden Ring thanks to patch 1.06. This allows you to complete Varré’s quest line without invading other players. You will then have to deal with the new NPC as an adversary.
  • Numerous fixes and improvements: Of course, Patch 1.06 brings even more changes to the Elden Ring. You can find out what exactly on page 2 of this article.
