Online:Patch/5.1.7

Elder Scrolls Online: Patch

Released on August 23 2019.

The Elder Scrolls Online v5.1.7 includes a fix for several of the game crashes that were introduced in the previous patch, and also has added safeguards against receiving repeated refunds for guild trader bids.

For any guilds that received extra gold from the multi-bidding issue, we have removed all the extra gold from the guild banks. In cases where we needed to remove more gold than the guild had in their bank, we reduced the guild bank down to zero gold. Any guilds whose bank balance is zero as a result of this will also have their guild trader bids canceled this week, and the gold from those bids removed.

We are also investigating a small number of guilds and individuals who severely abused the above issue and spent, moved, or otherwise laundered a large sum of duped gold and will be taking appropriate action on those accounts.

Also included his patch are several fixes for combat abilities and dungeons, some improvements for multi-crafting, and more. Additionally, we have re-enabled guild history for addons on both servers. The approximate size of this patch is 103MB.
