FromSoftware has released a new Ver.1.03.3 update for Elden Ring, and it fixes “a bug in the balance adjustment of the boss ‘Starscourge Radahn’ in update 1.03, in which the power of some attacks was unintentionally reduced.”

Radahn is one of the major story bosses that players face in Elden Ring. He was considered one of the toughest demigods to beat prior to the Ver.1.03 update. Although it wasn’t mentioned in the patch notes, players noticed that the once feared demigod became significantly weaker after patch 1.03 (related article), with lower melee damage and smaller weapon hitboxes. Many players expressed their dissatisfaction for a variety of reasons, some of them wanting to see Radahn keep his identity intact, while others missed the challenge he provided.

It’s not certain to what extent Radahn was nerfed in Ver.1.03 and how much of his previous prowess came back with the latest patch. Is he as fierce as he once was? I guess there’s only one way to find out; to face him in Wailing Dunes, where the demigod awaits.
