Permissions and credits
Elden Ring Reforged is an overhaul of Elden Ring's balance and mechanics with the intent to create a more balanced experience with fair, but still challenging, combat. It is not about "easier" or "harder," but more interesting and balanced combat.

As this is a mod, it is not compatible with online play and will result in a ban if used online.


  • New gameplay mechanics like Deflects and Fortunes. Deflects are powerful timed blocks that give more skill and power to blocking. Fortunes are a new class system that gives new themed abilities to the player.

  • Complete enemy bestiary containing knowledge on all enemies and enemy variants in the game.

  • A new form of collectable item, Rune Pieces, that greatly enhance and reward exploration of the game's world.

  • Rebalanced player equipment and features such as the 10 new Affinities and multiple new Spells.

  • Rebalanced status effects and the implementation of the Madness and Blight status against normal enemies.

  • Custom camera parameters for bosses, including some dynamic camera changes depending on what the boss is doing.

  • Modified enemy AI, including previously unused attacks and new mechanics.

  • Redone enemy hitboxes, so that what you see is what hits you.

  • Difficulty options accessible at any time at all Sites of Grace. Unique game modes are also selectable at the beginning of the game.

  • Boss resurrection available at the Roundtable Hold.


A work-in-progress wiki for info on changes made in ERR:



Feedback and suggestions are necessary to create a balanced experience. (I can't playtest every single item myself, and I'm not going to start balancing items I've never even used.) For the purposes of feedback and discussion, a small discord server has been created.



It is recommended to use Mod Engine 2 to install this mod. Mod Engine 2 can be found here. Mod Engine 2 is incomplete, but it should still function and allow for easy mod loading. Using an alternate save file is recommended if you want to go online again after using the mod.


To install with Mod Engine 2:

1. Download the latest version of Mod Engine 2 and extract the zip file to a folder.

2. Download the latest version of ERR and put the "ERR" folder in the same directory as the extracted Mod Engine 2 files.

3. Either rename the "ERR" folder to "mod" to use the mod with the default Mod Engine 2 configuration files, or modify the       "config_eldenring.toml" file to point to the "ERR" folder.

4. Make sure Steam is open.

5. Run "launchmod_eldenring.bat" to start the mod.
