The ring of Elden got a free PvP expansion to roll out 1.08 December 7, which opened up three colosseums in Middle Lands, ready for your spilled blood. I returned to the open world of the developer FromSoftware after a long vacation (I haven’t been in touch since the spring, I had to experience other games with plumbing within the world) to test it, and I was surprised how much crazy I didn’t, even as a “PvP guy.”
There is a different kind of conflict in every colosseum, every empty and relatively nondescript battlefield in Limgrave, Leyndell, and Calid. Leyndell’s Royal Colosseum has a 1v1 “Duel Mode” with no respawn, the Limgrave Colosseum adds a 2v2 “United Combat” with respawn or a free-for-all “Combat Ordeal” with respawn, and the Caelid Colosseum has the previously mentioned modes the extra amount. the ability to summon Spiritual Ashes.

And along with the colosseums, the update brought some much needed balance changes (and five new-but-Eurocentric hairstyles), which I think helps level the playing field, despite a few instant deaths for me. Anyway, I’ll gather my scattered bones and talk you through what you need to know about The ring of EldenPvP refresh.
How can I access The ring of Eldenand PvP colosseums?
Tricky FromSoftware wasn’t going to let you have your Roman fun easily – you have to break down the grill before you eat. But unlocking all three colosseums is not difficult, as long as you know where to go.
- Colosseum Limgrave: from the location of the Warmaster’s Shack, head north towards the circular building (aka the colosseum) by the shore. Open the main door and touch Marika’s pole inside to enter a game.
- Leyndell Colosseum: start at the location of Leyndell’s friends, Capital of Ash, and go southwest until you are behind the dead dragon. Jump on the ruins, head up the ladder, continue straight, then back along the mountain path until you reach the big doors. Open them and touch the statue of Marika.
- Caelid Colosseum: You will have to start at the prudent bit Deep Siofra Well site of grace. Ride your horse back around the mountain path, past the big boys trying to kill you with giant arrows, and behind the big disappointing jar. Then open the door, touch the image.
After you access all three colosseums for the first time, they will be available for fast travel. Go to the Roundabout Convention – a smaller statue of Marika to the right of the fireplace in the main room will let you choose your combat method and venue.
What balance changes should I expect?
FromSoftware changed the power of some buildings, so the settlement of players was forwarded stabbing weapons reduction is certain. According to to update notesthe colosseum balance changes are as follows:
- Thrust weapons reduce counter attack damage
- Some weapon types gain reduced guard effectiveness for attacks made with a raised shield
- Straight Swords, Thrust Swords, Heavy Swords, Curved Swords, Axes, Spears, Twinblade Swords, Katanas all reduce poise damage
- Bestial Sling also has reduced damage (but people still love to spam it!)
- Carian Slicer is not as powerful
What is the best PvP build right now?
There doesn’t seem to be one build above the rest at the moment. People are vibrating, letting their Spiritual Ashes care for each other in “Pokémon” battles. and one-shot you with its black magic.
Due to the prevalence of one-shots, I’d suggest you opt for sweeping, ultra-powerful attacks that can hold their own. like Dragonfire, Falling starsand Giantsflame Take With Youor weapons like Twinblades or his Curved Sword.
And if I really had to pick the best build… not pure strength, I’ll tell you that much. My Level 134 character, who was wielding a Great hammer, died instantly trying to get close to some spellcasters, and I noticed that quick weapons, bloodletting and dexterity scaling are very popular . Strong weapons struggle against them, although I was able to eliminate opponents in three hits when they finally let me land some.
But, I don’t know, I still had fun while losing. It sure is fun to try shit, especially in password-protected combat rooms where you can coordinate with your friends. I made my friend engage in one torch warfare, for example, and I learned that the Torchpole It is a much greater punishment than the A torch. I found that too The Scorpion Stinger which induces decay it’s a funny thing to achieve when you’re willing to do a bare fist fight. Now you’ve learned it, too.
I wouldn’t worry about what attacks should be considered “toxic,” or OP, or recommended builds, or whatever – this is a really relaxing update, and more than anything else, I think that you should try to enjoy yourself.
