Elden Ring Players Are Flocking To Thrust Weapons After The Patch, And With Good Reason
Taking us one inch closer to an Elden Ring DLC, the 1.07 patch FromSoftware released a week ago introduced balance changes to PvP, magic and incantations, Skills, and a few welcome bug fixes. It’s had a few days to settle, and players are already noticing that, while the patch has allowed all types of builds to stretch their legs, with general poise increases and even more increased attack power for some spells, it has been particularly favorable to people who like to poke with one of the game’s many thrusting swords.
“We got endure pokers, we got shield pokers, we got resolve pokers, we got bull goat pokers, everybody get your pokers!” one Reddit user wrote in a thread about post-patch PvP. Is it time to embrace the poke? Have you been transported suddenly to Facebook in 2011? I’m happy to let you know.
