Elden Ring 1.10 update

While it isn’t the most extensive and comprehensive update that Elden Ring players have ever seen, 1.10 does make some crucial changes to important aspects of the RPG title.

For instance, critical hit damage is part and parcel of many deadly builds. Players try to enhance stats and use abilities and skills that increase the likelihood of critical damage points. The new patch makes some tweaks to the overall damage done, as well as recovery time and poise in conjunction with critical hit damage.

Furthermore, PvP has also been the subject of the update’s attention too. There are also damage and hit point alterations made in this department too.
