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.


Almost every aspect of the game was modified as part of a comprehensive overhaul, with tens of thousands of changes across the board.

  • (Perfect) Deflect: Time your block for improved protection and bounce-back, giving skillful players an upper hand.

  • Fortune System: A new optional class system that gives new themed abilities to the player, available from various sources in the world.

  • Ducking: Duck under various swipe attacks on the spot, then counter-attack with a powerful move. (replaces Backstep)

  • Left-Hand Block: Block (and deflect) with left-handed weapons, even while powerstancing. (Powerstance L1 becomes R1)

  • Codex of the All-Knowing: Complete enemy bestiary containing knowledge on all enemies and enemy variants in the game.

  • Runeforging: A new permanent character progression system achieved by collecting Rune Pieces, a new collectable that greatly enhances and rewards exploration of the game's world.

  • Body Hues: An armor dye system with 72 colors to further customize your character appearance, unlocked through overworld archery challenges.

  • Magic Overhaul: Generate infinite FP with weakened Generator Spells. Cancel spells anytime during wind-up, and benefit from generally increased casting speed.

  • Weapon Catalysts: Attack and cast spells at the same time with special catalyst-weapon combos. Allows for casting while two-handing and powerstancing (with Left-Hand Block enabled).

  • Improved UI Graphics: Additional visual clarity by adding icons and graphics to various stats and dialogue options in the game.

  • Spirit Fury System: Spirit Ashes are now ignored by enemies by default, so any build can use them without breaking boss mechanics. Re-use a summoned Spirit Ash to enrage it for increased damage and target priority. Incentivizes raising the Mind attribute.

  • Difficulty Options: Tweak your experience at any time at all Sites of Grace. (Loses your runes in the progress)

  • Unique Game Modes: Adventure Mode (no fast travel, added gateways to Roundtable Hold) and Eternal Return (a Majora's Mask tribute) are available at the beginning of the game, among others.

  • Boss Resurrection: Revive any boss in the game for a rematch, at the Site of Grace in the Roundtable Hold.

  • Many new weapons, sorceries, incantations, weapon skills, altered armor pieces and affinities.

  • Rebalanced equipment scaling, damage types and stagger values.

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

  • Improved 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.

  • Community-contributed translations in the following languages: German, Korean, Russian, Japanese, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, Simplified Chinese, Thai. Untranslated texts remain fully readable in English.

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. Find and run the "Setup UI Images (ELDEN RING Reforged)" shortcut in the mod folder and follow the prompts.

5. Make sure Steam is open.

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