Elden Ring Rivers of Blood nerfs and bugs

Rivers of Blood was one of the most powerful weapons in Elden Ring at launch. That changed a bit with the arrival of patch 1.06 which introduced some nerfs to Rivers of Blood as well as other popular weapons like the Bloodhound Step, Glintstone Pebble, and many more.

During the early builds of Rivers of Blood, the weapon faced numerous bugs due to an Arcane scaling issue. However, the bug has officially been fixed with the new 1.04.1 update of the game.

In case of bug detection, you must head over to the properties>local files and verify the game. Doing this will help you no longer experience such a scaling bug for Rivers of Blood.
