Elden Ring Patch 1.12.3 Fixes Golden Hippopotamus Fight in Shadow of the Erdtree – Say Goodbye to Instant Attacks!

South Bend, Indiana – Players of Elden Ring: Shadow of the Erdtree can now rejoice as patch 1.12.3 has addressed the issues surrounding the Golden Hippopotamus boss fight. The update, released on July 4 by the game’s publisher, Bandai Namco, includes significant tweaks to two of the game’s challenging bosses: Commander Gaius and the notorious Golden Hippopotamus.

One of the key changes in the patch is the repositioning of both bosses for players facing them for the second time. This adjustment prevents the bosses from attacking players immediately upon entering their arenas, providing a more balanced and enjoyable gameplay experience.

The Golden Hippopotamus, in particular, has been a source of frustration for many players due to its aggressive behavior. With the latest patch, players can approach the boss fight with a renewed sense of challenge and strategy, instead of feeling overwhelmed by its relentless attacks.

Commander Gaius, on the other hand, now offers a more gradual introduction to the fight, allowing players to strategize and execute their moves effectively. This change adds a new level of fairness and balance to the boss encounter, making it a more satisfying experience for players.

In addition to addressing boss behaviors, the patch also fixes a bug related to the Golden Hippopotamus’s “unblockable bite attack,” ensuring that players can now evade the attack as intended. This fix provides clarity for players who may have experienced frustration due to what appeared to be unavoidable attacks during the boss fight.

Overall, the latest patch for Elden Ring: Shadow of the Erdtree offers improvements that enhance the overall gameplay experience for players. With these adjustments, players can continue their journey through the game with a renewed sense of challenge and satisfaction, free from the previous hindrances caused by the Golden Hippopotamus boss fight.
