‘Elden Ring’ patch should make it easier for ‘Shadow Of The Erdtree’ players

Seek strength

FromSoftware games are difficult by design, but sometimes the developers make the game’s a bit too hard. Fortunately for the many Elden Ring players feeling frustrated with Shadow of the Erdtree, the company has issued a patch that should make things easier for everyone.

In the latest patch notes, publisher Bandai Namco explained that the Scadutree Blessing effect that increases player damage output and mitigates damage done to the player would be buffed in the early part of the game. Now, the first half of the levels will increase these offensive and defensive stats more, while the latter half will be more gradual. Also, the final level of the blessing will be slightly stronger than it was previously, meaning at the maximum level, players will deal more damage and take less than before.

The Scadutree Blessing is bestowed upon players who find Scadutree Fragments scattered around the Land of Shadow. Collecting these and increasing your blessing level is essential, as the DLC area is designed to scale even with end-game player builds. It’s so mandatory that Bandai Namco sent a tweet telling players to do it.


Players have been leaving negative reviews on Steam for Elden Ring due to the difficulty of the DLC, so this patch and Bandai Namco’s advice should help steer players in the right direction. However, one streamer has been steadily beating the DLC bosses using just mind control, so maybe it all really is a skill issue.

Before you go off and start the DLC, if you haven’t already, it’s important you make sure you’re the right level for it. It is designed, like all FromSoftware DLC, to be an end-game addition to the base game.

In other news, Guy ‘Dr Disrespect’ Beahm has admitted to sending Twitch whisper messages to a minor that “sometimes leaned too much in the direction of being inappropriate.”
