Blades: Patch

Released on July 28, 2020.

Patch NotesEdit

A new version of The Elder Scrolls: Blades is live! Check out everything included in the latest version of the game in the patch notes below:

Introducing Event Quests!Edit

  • Take on limited-time Quests multiple times a week.
  • Counter each Event Quest's unique properties. In 'The Purifying Flames,' for example, enemies are only vulnerable to fire damage while in 'The Impenetrable Grove,' they act much more defensively.
  • Earn Sigils by completing Event Quests.
  • Spend Sigils on powerful items in the Sigil Shop, a new section of the Store.
  • Complete each Event Quest up to 5 times. Each Stage is harder than the last but rewards more Sigils!

Come to the Sigil Shop!Edit

  • In Arena mode only, blocking low now resets the high block refresh timer.
  • In Arena mode only, shield enchantments no longer take effect when an attack is blocked low.
  • Reduced the ranks at which most enemies use Power Attack abilities.

  • Added a button to the Quests Menu on the Main Menu.
  • Opening the Quests Menu now takes you directly to the section with the newest or most important content.
  • Added, in the Quests Menu, a shortcut from any Quest or Job to the Character Menu.
