Developer Hexworks and publisher CI Games have released the update 1.1.292 for the recently released action RPG Lords of the Fallen. The update aims to restore previous nerfs applied to some spells and boss weapons on update 282.

According to the developer, this provides all the resources and vigor necessary to upgrade two boss weapons from level 5 to level 10.Lastly, the developer also announced its ongoing balancing efforts will be focused on PVE. Lords of the Fallen launched on October 13 for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, and PC via Steam and Epic Games Store.
Update v.1.1.292 is now live on all platforms.
After your feedback from Update v.1.1.282, we have sped up the required time to restore your boss weapon's level. In addition, some spells have had their mana cost reduced.

The full patch notes via the developer:
As stated in yesterday’s update, we want to get your boss weapons back to the level they were before Update 282. We are working fast to remedy the game in accordance with your feedback, and sometimes a fix will require further tweaking before we get it 100% right.
We thought that by discounting the highly valuable Deralium Chunks in the Shrine of Orius, as well as making these a rare loot drop from Holy Bulwarks after fully upgrading Gerlinde, that this was enough to quickly reinstate your weapon’s level. However, we overlooked the substantial amount of time this required.
We are remedying this in today’s update, for those that meet the following requirements:
If your current character possesses any boss weapon,
and has upgraded any weapon to its maximum level (+5 for boss weapons pre-patch or +10 for any other weapon).
Available for the next ten days, you will find a new item in Skyrest Bridge, granting the following:
2 Deralium Chunks
40 Large Deralium Shards
15 Replete Vigor Skulls
This provides all the resources and vigor necessary to upgrade two boss weapons from level 5 to level 10.
This pickup is per character, so you can retrieve it for all your characters that meet the requirements. It can be found at Skyrest Bridge near the Shrine of Orius, in the small alcove with hammocks, where heroes, like you, take their very well deserved rest.
In addition to this, we’ve decreased the mana requirement for the Blessed Reflections spell and Infernal Hounds invocations, to be just an additional 50% mana to their previous pre-update cost, as opposed to the 500% they were changed to. So now they are better balanced for PVE.
As announced yesterday, we’re going to split PVE & PVP balancing in the near future, as some of you suggested, so PVP-related nerfs/buffs will never impact your PVE experience, and vice versa. But we need a little more time to do this justice.
In the meantime, our ongoing balancing will be focused on PVE.
We hope that this new pickup allows you all to continue your journey through Mournstead, while also taking advantage of the other 100+ enhancements provided in this week’s patch, including more difficult bosses, AI refinements, and HDR improvements (all based on your feedback). We’ve already seen another significant reduction in the number of crashes, as well as some great performance gains over the board, especially on hardware that presented some issues in the previous weeks. Rest assured, we continue to work diligently to further optimize the game, and look forward to sharing a free content roadmap next week.
In Light we Walk.
