New Elden Ring Patch Removes Shadow of the Erdtree's Most Annoying Boss

Bandai Namco has just released Elden Ring: Shadow of the Erdtree's first patch, and it’s a game-changer. Your prayers have finally been answered if you've been pulling your hair out over the Golden Hippopotamus fight. Released on July 4, this update promises to make your battles much smoother.

Golden Hippopotamus is Finally Tamed

The Golden Hippopotamus, the bane of many players' existence, will no longer charge at you like a bull seeing red. Instead, waking up when you enter its arena will take a moment. This gives you precious seconds to summon spirits, set up your gear, and prepare for the fight without being flattened immediately. This change means you can enjoy the challenge rather than feeling steamrolled from the get-go. Commander Gaius, another tough boss, has also been adjusted. He'll no longer be in your face when the fight starts. While his battle was less infuriating than the Hippo's, this tweak makes it even fairer and more strategic.

Bug Fixes and Cheers from the Community

But that's not all. The patch also addresses a pesky bug with the Golden Hippopotamus's unavoidable bite attack. Many players felt like they dodged the attack, only to get chewed anyway. With this fix, dodging will work as expected, making the fight more about skill and less about luck. The Elden Ring community is buzzing with excitement. These changes mean fewer rage-quits and more satisfying victories. Finally, players can look forward to a fair fight that rewards strategy and skill. To dive into all the patch details, head over to Bandai Namco's official website. This update is a clear sign that the developers are listening to the community and committed to making Elden Ring the best it can be. So, gear up and get back into the Lands Between—it's time to face those bosses with renewed vigor!
