Dark Souls 3 just received its final DLC with the release of The Ringed City, which also marks the end of the series for developer FromSoftware entirely. The developer recently discussed a new patch for the game that would make life a little easier for owners of the DLC and the base game, and now that patch is live across all supported platforms.

Patch 1.32 is now live after a maintenance period that took place earlier today, and there’s no download necessary seeing as it’s a server-side update. The one change that most Ringed City players will be glad to see is that they have toned down the damage of light arrows from the Angels, which became a major nuisance for many people. The following are the complete patch notes, which include changes in both the Ringed City DLC and the base game:

  • 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

Dark Souls 3 is available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. The Ringed City is the swan song for Dark Souls 3 and the series in general, with the developer moving on to other projects. We thought that it was an excellent conclusion to the series, giving it 4.5 stars in our review.
