Online:Patch/5.0.4

Online: Public Test Server

Released on May 16 2019.

The Elder Scrolls Online v5.0.4 is the final PTS patch before we launch Elsweyr and Update 22 on PC/Mac next week. We have continued to make adjustments to Dragons and Sunspire Trial, and have a few additional fixes for combat abilities. Note we’ve performed another character copy for this patch, this time for PC/Mac North American characters, to further test some fixes before we launch next week. This final patch is approximately 1.95GB in size. Thank you for all the testing and feedback; it’s been an invaluable resource!

  • Improved the audio balance in the Plane of Jode portion of Jode's Embrace.
  • Improved the reliability of visual effects in Jode’s Embrace.
  • Sealed several small gaps in the doorframes of Jode’s Embrace.

Quests & ZonesEdit

General

  • Adjusted the balance of some quest bosses (Euraxia, Zumog Phoom, and [Spoilery Boss Name]) to reduce their lethality for lower level players.

Delves

  • Predator Mesa: Fixed an issue where some quest monsters could get stuck in the world.

Daily Quests

  • Wisdom in the Winds: Fixed an issue where some of the ancient scroll cases were not within the boundaries of the quest assist pin.

Ashen Scar

  • A Rage of Dragons:
    • Cadwell will no longer use an invisible shovel. While this is not necessarily out of character for him, even Cadwell must bow to Tamriel’s very vague suggestion of the laws of physics.

UIEdit

General

  • The world boss Wily Kee’va now has a proper boss bar in the UI.

Combat & GameplayEdit

Combat & AbilitiesEdit

NightbladeEdit
  • Assassination
    • Incapacitating Strike: The Silence from this ability can now be CC broken, and cannot be activated on targets who are already affected by a CC effect.
      • Note that this change is exclusive to Incapacitating Strike, and will not apply to other Silences, such as Negate Magic, since those are area effect-based pulsing durations, versus instantaneous duration-based effects.
      • Developer Comment: As mentioned in the 5.0.3 patch notes, the goal with the change to Incapacitating Strike’s conditional bonus was to tone down some of the shut-down mechanic to it, since Silences are essentially stuns that allow the target to continue moving, blocking, and dodging. We are aware of the nature that Silences have in terms of effectiveness on varying builds, which is why we found the ability to CC break this effect would be an ideal compromise; it still has the counter play options of a traditional stun, but no longer needs to always be broken.
TemplarEdit
  • Restoring Light
    • Repentance: This morph will now grey out and become unable to cast if there are no corpses around you.
Alliance WarEdit
  • Support
    • Guard: Fixed an issue where allies who were affected by the guard beam could die if the caster of this ability died.

Itemization & Item SetsEdit

Item Sets

  • Domihaus: Fixed an issue where the damage from this set could not hit Dragons.
  • Nerien'eth's: Fixed an issue where the Grave Robber synergy from Boneyard and its morphs could not trigger this item set.

Base Game Fixes & ImprovementsEdit

Art & AnimationEdit

Animation

  • Fixed an issue where Indrik mounts were not consistently level with the ground.

Dungeons & Group ContentEdit

Trials

  • Hel Ra Citadel
    • You can no longer interact with Yokeda Rok'dun's gate, thus preventing him from spawning.

Exploration & ItemizationEdit

General

  • Fixed an issue causing poisons of Minor Heroism to claim they grant you Minor Sorcery, despite actually restoring Ultimate every second.
  • Adjusted the tooltips on many Motif chapters and books, to convey that they also teach the commensurate Outfit Styles as well.
  • Fixed an issue that could cause the your level to not be considered when looting alchemy water resource nodes, leading to the alchemy water scaling only based on your Solvent Proficiency passive.
  • Corrected numerous issues with effect interactions on the Target Iron Atronach. Previously, it was possible for the permanent versions of effects to be double-stacked or scrubbed off by certain player abilities in unintended ways. Additionally, it was also calculating values for Fracture and Breach incorrectly.

HousingEdit

Furnishings

  • Fixed an issue where Pets, Mounts, Assistants, and Target Dummies would pause in an unusual pose when being placed.

UIEdit

General

  • Fixed issue where Mounts couldn't be previewed from the Daily Rewards screen.
  • Removed the watermark from everyone’s screens.
    • Note: This does not mean the NDA has been lifted; we still want to avoid spoiling the story! This will just aid in anyone wishing to create content ahead of launch.

Guild Finder

  • Fixed an issue where changing the Core Hours for your Guild Listing could also change the toggles on Additional Activities.
  • Icon markup can no longer be used in the Recruitment Headline due to issues where it could cover other guild listings. All markup can still be used in the Description.
