The latest version of Shadow of the Erdtree is available for players to download. Here are the complete patch notes for Elden Ring: Shadow of the Erdtree 1.12.2:

Calibration Update 1.12.2 change list

Attack and damage negation curve scaling of the Shadow Realm Blessings has been revised.

  • The attack and damage negation has been increased for the first half of the maximum amount of Blessing enhancements, and the second half will now be more gradual.
  • The attack and damage negation granted by the final level of Blessing enhancements has been slightly increased.

The calibration update can be applied by logging into the multiplayer server.

If the Calibration Ver. listed at the bottom right of the title menu is not "1.12.2", then select LOGIN and apply the latest regulations before enjoying the game.



About graphics settings (PC version only)

We have confirmed a bug where the raytracing settings are automatically enabled if you have previously loaded saved data from previous game versions.

If your framerate is unstable, please check in the 'SYSTEM' > 'Graphics Settings' > 'Raytracing Quality' settings from the title menu or in-game menu to check if it has been unintentionally set to 'ON'. Once set to 'OFF', Ray Tracing will no longer be automatically enabled.

Other balance adjustments as well as bug fixes are also planned for a future patch.



What's Next?

FromSoftware says more updates are coming. They plan to make more balance changes and fix other bugs. However, no specific timeline was given for these future updates.

The patch doesn't address all known issues. Steam Deck users are still having problems with the game crashing if left idle. Hopefully, this will be fixed in a future update.




This patch shows that FromSoftware is listening to player feedback. The changes should make the game more accessible to new players while maintaining the challenge for veterans. PC players will also appreciate the performance improvements.
