Elden Ring update 1.12.3 patch notes: You no longer heal the enemy (2024)

Which is generally good news when you try to kill them

Marco Wutz

A new Elden Ring update is available on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S. Patch 1.12.3 brings a wave of much needed bug fixes and small balance adjustments to the RPG that recently got its first and final DLC, Shadow of the Erdtree.

Among the most important changes made in this version of the open-world game is the fix for a bug that caused users of Black Knife Tiche to heal their enemies during combat – inconvenient at best when you’re actually trying to kill them.

Unfortunately, not all bug fixes are going to be as helpful for Tarnished as that one: An error that caused Lightning Perfume Bottle and Frenzyflame Perfume Bottle to deal double damage under specific circ*mstances, which could be exploited by players, has been corrected.

PvP-exclusive balance adjustments

  • Decreased the damage and damage animation of the shearing vacuum effect of the “Swift Slash” Skill.

  • Extended the throwing attacks range for the following weapons:

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed a bug that caused the Rolling Sparks Skill to deal more damage than expected.
  • Fixed a bug that caused the Rolling Sparks and Wall of Sparks Skills to deal no damage while some special effects were applied to the player.
  • Fixed a bug where some special effects of a right-handed weapon would also be applied to the following Weapon Skills when cast with the left hand: Feeble Lord's Frenzied Flame, Discus Hurl
  • Fixed a bug where successfully guarding while attacking using the Thrusting Shield weapon type would consume less stamina than intended.
  • Fixed a bug that prevented players from cancelling the attack recovery of two-handed strong attacks by rolling for certain weapons of the Backhand Blades weapon type.
  • Fixed a bug that caused the Lightning Perfume Bottle and Frenzyflame Perfume Bottle weapons to deal double damage under certain circ*mstances.

  • Fixed a bug that caused enemies to heal when the Maximum HP reduction gradual HP reduction effect applied by Black Knife Tiche wore off.
  • Fixed a bug that caused summoned NPCs to behave differently than expected under certain circ*mstances.
  • Fixed a bug that where the unblockable bite attack of the Golden Hippopotamus boss would connect with players more easily than intended.
  • Fixed a bug that caused text to display differently than expected.
  • Several other performance improvements and bug fixes.

Possible unstable performance fixes

  • For the PS5 version of the game, unstable framerate may be improved by using the "Rebuild Database" option from the device’s safe mode.
  • In some PC versions, Ray Tracing may be unintentionally enabled and cause unstable performance. Please check the Ray Tracing setting in the "System" > "Graphics Settings" > "Raytracing Quality" from the title screen or in-game menu.
  • In the PC Version, the message "Inappropriate activity detected" may appear without cheating.

To fix this issue, please verify the integrity of the game's files before restarting the game.

  • In the PC version, unstable framerate may be caused by third party applications that control mouse behavior. Deactivating these third party applications may improve performance.
