Scadutree Fragments in Elden Ring's DLC provide buffs to attack power and defense, stackable for extra benefits in boss fights and dungeons.
Find them, as easy as that.

As usual for FromSoftware, you eventually find this for yourself or from others.
So many gamers are frankly dumb and act like newbies, deciding on a game in ignorance, inform yourself first !.

Anyway, as usual I deep hack all games to be an insanely overpowered avenger level tourist (free mods & trainers, and of course my own C.E. tables for a pletora of changes not available otherwise).

there is a saying that you can only play DS for the first time once. If you use a walkthrough that's fine but you are also ruining it for yourself.

10 hours into the DLC = zero performance issues, game runs better than ever other than the 60fps lock which we alreayd knew about with From's engine. No difficulty issues, it's on par with the base game which we already know about and love, the scadutree fragments you should collect to power up before bosses and eveyone knows about them now.

These people are braindead idiots.

Some of the bosses in the original game were extremely hard, hard enough that I had to go and look at walkthrough videos, and I still needed a shitload of practice before I could bring them down. I liked the Elden Ring, because it somehow got the progression "right". At points it was really frustrating, but those were the exception and throughout most of the game I genuinely felt like I was getting better at the game, and my character was getting more powerful.

I am not buying this expansion, because I think the complaints are valid. If it feels like you're hitting a skill wall that's insurmountable and all you keep doing is loading up the game every few minutes because you keep dying to incredibly ridiculous and over the top unpredictable enemies, then why even play? If 40% of the playerbase (or however many are giving it negative reviews for this reason) are quitting the game and downvoting it because of difficulty issues (and please take note that most if not all of these people have completed the base game and have loved it) then there is something wrong with your game.

DLSS isn't gonna be much help with general performance -- it seems to me any card that supports it shouldn't be having trouble running the game unless you're going for 4K+ resolution when you really shouldn't be -- and it would have zero effect on good-old open world CPU bottlenecking at points of unusually high simulation and/or streaming load... Most Souls games have had at least one area where that is a problem, so as long as there isn't an entire zone that reduces framerate to the 10-15fps range, I'd consider that a win for their QA team. I'm sure they will come out with any low-hanging optimization fixes they find, but it could be the case where they aren't willing to make massive changes that might compromise game design in the interest of eliminating a few stutters here and there.

What DLSS would do, if they choose to implement it, is allow people without top-end GPUs to run ray-tracing while still maintaining the 60fps cap. It's a subtle global illumination upgrade for the most part, but I've noticed it does make a significant difference in some areas and have enjoyed seeing the game in a new light compared to how it launched.

- We insult gamers for downvoting a game for features that only help a corporation while compromising security
- We insult gamers for downvoting a game for being a live service
- We insult gamers for downvoting a game for excessive monetization
- We insult gamers for downvoting a game because of bad performance
- We insult gamers for downvoting a game in early access because it gets abandoned
- We now insult gamers for downvoting a game because the difficulty of a game that they bought kills the fun

So tell me, when exactly are gamers allowed to downvote anything? Or do you guys just hate gamers? Why exactly are you a gamer then?

I'm almost 15? 20? hours in, and I don't think it's that bad. Some of the bosses are ridiculous, but most of the ones I've fought seemed on par. A lot of trash can two-three-hit me at 50 vigor, but there's also still a lot of weak trash that depends on surprise attacks or ganging up. I honestly don't think the difficulty complaints are totally valid, especially given this game's history, devs, and earlier DS games... There's people gatekeeping playstyles for things that are in the game (like spirit ashes), which makes no sense. It's there from the devs, so the game's clearly balanced around them.

It's been wonderful to explore. The map's way larger than I had expected. More of those amazing exploration vibes.

No hitching or stuttering on a 3070, but I am getting big FPS drops for the more extreme enemy spell casts (like the pyre minibosses).

I guess it's the same for your question.

It depends on what review aggregator you're looking at. On Metacritic, the Star Wars reviews more accurately represent the quality of the shows (in my opinion). The Book of Boba Fett: 59, Ahsoka: 68, The Acolyte: 67.

This DLC on the other hand, despite its performance issues on the PC and its difficulty level, has a 94 on Opencritic and a 93 on Metacritic for PC. How objective are these journalists being when reviewing this game?

I found ray tracing was enabled on my game when I fired it up. turned it off and it solved the stuttering problems.
also seems that initial load is very slow.
As for the DLC, you have to beat Mohg, an optional boss, and only 37% have done that.
It is a questionable decision, since that limits the potential player base.
(Meteor Rahdan is mandatory and recommended level is 150)
People are annoyed that there is a different leveling system inside the DLC.
Compare that to Nioh. Nioh does have very soft caps on some stats but for damage stats you can take them up to 200 and continue adding damage
Lords of the Fallen and also Lies of P also seemed to do the caps a bit better.

On my PC (RTX 4080 / Ryzen 7 7700x) I've had hitches as long as about 5 seconds

Not as bad as Elden Ring was at launch, if you can believe it, but it's bad.
