Elden Ring’s major balance update hits some of your favourite Sorceries, Incantations and Weapon Skills

FromSoftware rolled out patch 1.04 this morning to all players of Elden Ring. This is among the game’s biggest updates so far, though mostly for the number of balance changes it includes, rather than standard fixes.
