Dark Souls III Update Now Live

By Megan Walton,
The last DLC for Dark Souls III was released recently, and following up on that is a patch for the game. This regulation update sorts out a few balancing issues amongst other things, including bugs, so for the full list have a look below.

Dark Souls III: The Ringed City


  • Reduced damage of the light arrows fired by "Angels"
  • The sorcery "Hidden Body" is now effective against "Angels"
  • Reduced the damage of homing spears released from "Spear of the Church"
  • Reduced the amount of bonus absorption the "Spear of the Church" receives during 1vs2, 1vs3 and 1vs4 games (1vs1 is unaffected)
  • Reduced the amount of HP "Church Guardian" has during a 1vs1 match (1vs2, 1vs3 and 1vs4 are unaffected)
  • Increased damage and scaling of simple, crystal, fire, chaos, lightning, dark, deep and blessed infusions
  • Increased damage of raw infusions
  • Reduced damage and scaling of heavy infusions at lower weapon levels
  • Increased scaling of sharp infusions, and increased damage gain at high levels of dexterity
  • Reduced scaling of heavy infusions on lighter weapons
  • Reduced damage of "Exile Greatsword"
  • Reduced damage for L1(LB) attacks, and increased stamina consumption for L1(LB) attacks and weapon art "Ember" of "Ringed Knight Paired Greatswords"
  • Fixed a bug where the weapon art "Wind Wheel" of "Splitleaf Greatsword" was applying more status effects than intended
  • Fixed a bug where fully charged R2(RT) attacks of "Profaned Greatsword" and "Black Knight Greatsword" were not consuming additional stamina
  • Fixed a bug where the weapon art of "Preacher's Right Arm" would combo for more hits than intended
  • Fixed a bug where the weapon art of "Painting Guardian's Curved Sword" would combo for more hits than intended
  • Increased damage of Toxic dealt by players, but reduced the penalty to stamina regeneration
They also pointed out that as this is a regulation update and not a full patch, they didn't "have the same liberty" but will see "how it evolves". The patch is now live, and should be available when you next load up the game.
