Valkyrie Gets a Buff Alongside Others in Latest For Honor Patch v1.03

For Honor Patch

There’s a new For Honor patch releasing and it’s a good one. Patch v1.03 released for PC this morning, while Xbox and PlayStation players will receive it soon. Coincidentally, the first round of For Honor’s metagame the Faction War has ended with Vikings as the victors.

Many of the changes in patch v1.03 are minor bug fixes and tweaks. If you’d like to see the notes in full, check here. There’s an interesting change to the Guardbreak mechanic as well, reverting it back to the beta behavior. That change in particular will be quite a relief. Changes to Peacekeepers Bleed stacking were also made to fix bugs from the beta. If you’re a strong Valkyrie player, you’ll enjoy this one as she’s receiving a substantial buff. The biggest changes of patch v1.03 were for the spear and shield carrying hero, which hopefully makes her a bigger threat to many other players

Here’s an overview of the changes:

  • Pouncing Thrust & Hunter’s Strike damage increased from 12 dmg to 17 dmg
