V Rising has a few million players to keep happy, and that means updates and balance changes at regular intervals. The newest patch, version 0.5.42050, is live now, and it makes some adjustments that are going to be very polarizing for players. In fact, they already are. If you read the hundreds of comments attached to the patch notes on Steam, you'll see many complaints about changes being made for the sake of PvP. Some magic spells and weapons have been buffed, while others have been nerfed \u2014 mounted melee combat, in particular, was hit with a hefty 30% damage reduction. Sounds like V Rising weapon tier lists are going to need some revising after this one. You can find the complete patch notes below. In addition to the magic- and weapon-related changes, there are a number of bug fixes. Many of those were based on community suggestions.
