Bandai Namco has issued update 1.03.3 for Elden Ring to iron out a mistake made in update 1.03 to one of the game’s bosses. Here are the latest Elden Ring patch notes for From Software’s ambitious RPG title. 

Patch 1.03.2 for Elden Ring was released on March 23, bringing a slew of fixes to bugs that prevented the player from getting the most out of the RPG.

Targeting a litany of issues that prevented the player from using the Ash of War and blocking progress through Nepheli Loux’s questline. 

In the progress of remedying these issues, Bandai Namco inadvertently created another issue within the game based around the Caelid demigod, Starscourge Radahn

With the new patch Radhn returns to his former more destructive self.

What happened to Starscourge Radahn?

As a result of patch 1.03.2, Radahn, formerly one of Elden Rings most destructive bosses, has been nerfed, leaving him a shell of his former self — as far as From Software bosses go. 

When the player would face off against the demigod, Radahn’s attacks were noticeably weaker, allowing for an easier battle.

Bandai Namco released a small patch across all platforms on April 4 that addressed the unintentional nerf given to Radahn. 

Releasing a tweet to address the sole purpose of the quick patch, the official Elden Ring Twitter account stated that “patch 1.03.3 fixes a bug in the balance adjustment of the boss “Starscourge Radahn,” which the power of some attacks was unintentionally reduced.”

While the patch doesn’t address which attacks were directly impacted by the accidental nerf, From Software has restored their chaotic optional boss to his original fighting shape. 

If you’re looking to go against the newly adjusted boss in light of this recent patch, be sure you’re at least level 70 or using a well-built character in Elden Ring.

Starscourge Radahn can be found at the Redmane Castle in southwestern Caelid. But beware, with the restoration of Radahn’s prowess, you will be up against an opponent who has access to an array of instant-kill” attacks.
