Elden Ring: Improved Starscourge Radahn after accidental nerf last month

Elden Ring has been out for less than two months and already it has received a number of updates and fixes to add extra NPC quest steps, new NPC icons on the game map, nerfs and buffs for popular weapons and abilities, and more.

In an update last month, infamous Starscourge boss Radahn was nerfed. Some of his attacks were less frequent it seems, but more noticeably his attacks weren’t doing as much damage as Radahn before the patch. However, it turns out that this nerf was unintentional because in a new update released today, From Software calls it a bug that has now been fixed.

“Fixed a bug in the balance adjustment of the boss ‘Starscourge Radahn’ in update 1.03, in which the power of certain attacks was unintentionally reduced,” said the patch notes read.

As you can see, From Software very clearly references the Radahn nerf as unintentional and also as a bug that should never have happened. We haven’t fought Radahn yet since this update, but we’re excited (and scared) to see what the fight looks like now.

It is important to note that today’s update is an update to a previously released patch: patch 1.03. As a result, this update doesn’t do anything else for Elden Ring – it just fixes the Radahn balance and that’s it. For reference, Patch 1.03 was released in March and this update is live as of today, April 4, 2022.
