Released on September 16 2019.

Welcome to The Elder Scrolls Online v5.2.0 and the Dragonhold DLC Game Pack, featuring the conclusion of the Season of the Dragon! Dragonhold introduces not only the new zone of Southern Elsweyr, but also adds two world bosses, two delves, and new Dragon Hunt areas (complete with fearsome Frost and Storm Dragons). We've also added several new collectibles, item sets, achievements, and titles for you to acquire.

The base game introduces our updated Activity Finder for dungeons and Battlegrounds, and also focuses heavily on the first part of the performance improvements for ESO with an overhaul of how memory is managed. Along with updating 3-piece item sets, you'll find we've made several improvements to Wardens, Sorcerers, and Dragonknights in the realm of identity, adjusted some values of Damage over Time abilities, and more.

We've copied all PC/Mac North American characters, and have also supplied a max-level character template to explore Southern Elsweyr. We hope you enjoy this latest update, which is approximately 4.4GB, and can't wait to read your feedback!

New Features / Updates / Big Changes[edit]

Dragonhold DLC Game Pack[edit]

New Zone - Southern Elsweyr[edit]

Southern Elsweyr, a once prestigious and wealthy land built up around the trade routes of the shimmering moonlit waters of the Topal Sea, is now a mere shadow of its former self. The effects of the Knahaten Flu still linger throughout the province—an event that decimated most of the population and left it as a land of ruthless lawlessness filled with slavers and pirates. Now scorched lands, burnt buildings, and ruins of an era long passed cover the region of Pellitine leaving the citizens with little hope for the future. Yet the problems of old pale in comparison to its newest threats.

The Dragons have returned and ravage the lands with fire and chaos. With them, a cult led by a Khajiiti Dragon Priest has emerged and seeks to take advantage of the hopeless and lost. The walled remains of Senchal offer the only sanction to those who seek sanctum, but even those protections threaten to give way to the might of the Dragons. To give the people a chance, an ancient order must be reformed. One that will defend the people and fight to take back the land from the Dragons and their cult. Do you have the courage and might to reform the Dragonguard?

  • To visit Southern Elsweyr, navigate to the DLC tab of the Collections menu and accept the "The Dragon's Lair" quest from the Zone DLC section.
  • From there, visit one of the capital cities of the alliance (Wayrest, Mournhold, or Elden Root) and seek out the Baandari Caravan to Senchal, located on your map.
    • Known Issue: The wayshrine to Senchal will not currently unlock automatically. This will be fixed in an upcoming patch and unlock as normal.
  • Additionally, the supplied Character Templates will bring you directly to the questline to begin your journey in Southern Elsweyr.
Season of the Dragon Finale[edit]

In addition to the DLC, the Season of the Dragon comes to its epic conclusion in Dragonhold! The combined forces of your allies from Northern and Southern Elsweyr must join together and put a stop to Kaalgrontiid's ultimate plan hundreds of years in the making.

  • The Season of the Dragon Finale is unlike anything we've done in ESO thus far, and to ensure story continuity makes sense, this special questline will only become accessible once you've completed the main questline of both the Elsweyr Chapter and Dragonhold DLC.
  • You may do either questline in any order. Once both adventures have been completed, a messenger will arrive and put you on a certain path…
Rebuilding the Dragonguard Sanctum[edit]

Once you have reformed the Dragonguard and found a base to call home, you can begin to rebuild the Dragonguard by completing the various quests found within the sanctum, including both main and daily quests. As you complete these quests, the Dragonguard will begin to grow with new allies and services appearing within the sanctum.

  • Some of the things you will unlock over time include:
    • A unique crafting station for the Ancient Dragonguard item set
    • An Achievement vendor
      • Those who help rebuild the Dragonguard Sanctum will gain access to a new achievement furnisher, who offers a number of Southern Elsweyr-themed furnishings for sale to the accomplished customer.
    • A quest to unlock a unique crafting component from dragons
      • Dragon's Rheum can be obtained by defeating from dragons after completing the "The Good Bits" quest, unlocked by helping rebuild the Dragonguard Sanctum.
  • After the Dragonguard is reformed, you can track your progress on rebuilding its headquarters under the achievement “A New Dragonguard” in Dragonhold > Quests at any time.
Frost & Storm Dragons[edit]

Frost and Storm Dragons from the far reaches of Tamriel have come out of hiding. Drawn to Elsweyr by their brethren, these fearsome creatures bring unique and devastating destruction magic to bear on those brave enough to face them.

  • Frost Dragons summon fierce winter storms and cause frozen spears to burst forth from the ground. Storm Dragons call lightning from the skies and annihilate foes with fearsome blasts of shock magic.
  • Rumors of Dragons that manipulate the flow of time have also spread through the taverns and caravanseries of Elsweyr, as have tales of long-dead skeletons erupting from the earth to serve Draconic masters.
  • The creatures themselves have grown bolder, chasing enemies across the battlefield to rip into them with tooth and claw. Dragons tire of their environs and take to the skies when they are not engaged, so those who dare challenge them must be prepared to fight or give chase.
  • These new Dragons and Dragon behaviors are found in both Northern and Southern Elsweyr!
New Item Sets[edit]

  • The Za'ji's Dragonguard Uniform costume is rewarded for completing the quest "Uneasy Alliances"
New Motifs[edit]

Dragonguard Motif chapters, as well as the associated style item Guilding Salts, are obtained from completing daily quests for the Dragonguard from Chizbari the Chipper and Dirge Truptor, Dragonguard Taskmasters.

New Homes[edit]

Two new homes are available for testing in this update:

  • Lucky Cat Landing – By some miracle or simple chance, Lucky Cat Landing weathered the fires that ravaged Southern Elsweyr completely unsinged! Its spacious terrace frames a gorgeous view, and its proximity to Senchal makes it convenient for those who enjoy city living.
  • Potentate's Retreat – Originally built by the Potentate Versidue-Shaie as a retreat from Senchal, this manor contains roomy spaces in which to entertain guests. A terraced area features a flooded aeonstone crater as well as luminescent flora transplanted from Moonlit Cove.
Final Wing of the Hall of the Lunar Champion[edit]

Those who complete the main story quest "The Dragonguard" in Dragonhold will earn the final story tablet for the Hall of the Lunar Champion, "Behold Khunzar-ri's Ambition". Placing this tablet on the Altar of Ambition opens a portal to Lion's Cradle, Khunzar-ri's childhood home atop a bluff in Southern Elsweyr.

Base Game[edit]

Updated Activity Finder[edit]

This update introduces an updated Activity Finder. Note the UI will still appear the same as before, but we have re-coded the tool to be more effective under load. Specific changes to the tool that will be most noticeable are outlined below:

  • Dungeons
    • Adjusted the "Removing from Area" timer when leaving an instance group. The timer is now 2 minutes when leaving a completed instance to allow for more time for quest turn ins and such.
    • It is also only 10 seconds when leaving an incomplete instance, to make the process of finding replacement group members for group activities quicker.
  • Battlegrounds
    • Accepting a Ready Check for a Battleground will now immediately send you to the Battleground. This is to help avoid a common situation where repeated Ready Checks happened with only one or two players not accepting them.
    • The Battleground will continue to find replacements for players that declined or timed out of the Ready Check. If the Battleground cannot find at least 3 players per team after 5 minutes, the Battleground will close and you will not receive a leaver debuff.
  • Alliance War
    • This section of the Activity Finder has been removed. The original idea was to help facilitate grouping in Cyrodiil, but based on our data, we found it was very rarely used.
    • Note this section still appears in the UI for the time being, but does not actually function.
Memory Management Overhaul[edit]

In this update, we've implemented a new memory pooling system to reduce memory fragmentation. This fundamentally changes how we handle memory use in ESO, and will improve your experience by significantly reducing the chance of crashing from running out of memory. You may also notice a minor FPS improvement due to a reduction of load in peak memory use situations, such as when lots of other players or effects are in an area.

Battleground Runner Weapon Outfit Styles[edit]

These new Outfit Styles will occasionally be found by completing Flag Games (and only Flag Games) in Battlegrounds.

  • These Outfit Style Pages are bound to you when you obtain them.
  • Your performance in the Flag Game does not impact these Outfit Styles' drop chance. Win, lose, or draw, you have the same chance to obtain a Battleground Runner Outfit Style Page.
  • You will always obtain these Outfit Style Pages in a prescribed order, and only after obtaining all the Battleground Runner Armor Outfit Styles.
3-Piece Item Set Updates[edit]

Part of our evaluation of older item sets revealed that our 3-Piece item sets were underperforming. These sets were originally created for the purpose of adding more diversity in player builds without sacrificing power. They will now better fulfill their purpose by giving you the opportunity to run different types of gear combinations outside the popular 5-Piece sets and a Monster Mask meta, and help reinforce the idea of “play the way you want”.

Undaunted Celebration[edit]

Later this year, we're planning to host the Undaunted Celebration dungeon event. This event will grant bonus rewards for running dungeons, and is available for testing this week.

  • Defeating the final boss of any dungeon will award an Undaunted Event Reward Box. If it's your first dungeon boss of the day, you'll also get an Exceptional Reward box with even more rewards.
  • Exceptional reward boxes include new Opal weapon outfit styles. These styles are based on the Illambris, Engine Guardian, Bloodspawn, and Troll King styles but with a unique shine and effect.
  • New Opal versions are available of the Ilambris, Engine Guardian, Bloodspawn, and Troll King helm and shoulder styles.
    • The helm style pages have a chance to drop from the associated boss in Veteran Hard Mode, while the shoulders can be purchased from Glirion and Maj al-Ragath if you own the base shoulder style.
  • During the event, you can earn three Event Tickets once per day, per account, by defeating the final boss of any Dungeon (Normal or Veteran). These can be traded for special items at the Event Merchant (the Impresario).
Alliance War Campaign Updates[edit]

Once this updates goes live, we will be opening a new Cyrodiil campaign. Laatvulon is a 30 day, CP-enabled, non-Alliance locked Campaign. Additionally, we will be shutting down the Yolnahkriin campaign. Anyone assigned to this campaign at shutdown will receive a free campaign reassignment.

Template Information[edit]

This PTS cycle includes a single template aptly named “Dragonhold (Maximum Level)”. Utilizing this template will create a CP810 character located just outside the city of Senchal. You will also have all the new motifs in this update (Refabricated, Dragonguard, Moongrave Fane and Stags of Z'en) and boxes for the new overland item sets at your disposal.

Known Issues[edit]

  • You currently may not receive the random queue reward in some situations.
  • There is currently no error message when trying to queue with offline group members.
  • You may get stuck in a group if you attempt to disband it while queued.

Clockwork City Fixes & Improvements[edit]

Quests & Zones[edit]

General

  • Clockwork City group boss dailies will now be easier to complete under load. You are only required to collect 3 sequence plates for the Imperfect daily (and they respawn more quickly), and you need only deal with two Daedric Incursions for the Wraith-of-Crows daily (which now have a minimum number spawned).
  • Fixed an issue where Razgurug in Clockwork City would give you the wrong greeting if you couldn't accept any of his quests.

Elsweyr Fixes & Improvements[edit]

Art & Animation[edit]

General

  • Fixed an issue where you could get stuck in the corner of the wall in Rimmen.

Combat & Gameplay[edit]

Necromancer[edit]

Developer Comment: Due to many of the current targeting issues with corpses and tether abilities, we are allowing Shocking Siphon and its morphs, as well as Restoring Tether and its morphs, to bypass the global cooldown. We are currently working on alternative methods to improve the targeting for these abilities, as well as improving the reliability of created corpses and their durations, but are not ready to implement them quite yet. We're aware of the frustrating nature of attempting to use these abilities, which is why we have added a small stop-gap measure in the meantime until we can properly solve the issue.

  • Grave Lord
    • Boneyard: Increased the base cost of this ability and its morphs to 4950, up from 3780, and decreased the damage per tick by approximately 33%.
    • Frozen Colossus: This ability and its morphs will now only apply Major Vulnerability to enemies hit by the final smash, rather than any enemy. This will reduce the total duration to 3 seconds, down from 5.
    • Shocking Siphon: Decreased the damage per tick of this ability and its morphs by approximately 33%.
    • Skeletal Mage: Decreased the damage per hit of this ability and its morphs by 50%.
  • Bone Tyrant

  • The Final Order: This quest now indicates it's part of the zone story in the quest journal.

UI[edit]

General

  • Updated various books and a conversation to capitalize "Southern" in "Southern Elsweyr".
  • Updated the icons used during the boss fights with Bahlokdaan and Mulaamnir, and various tutorial abilities.

Furnishings

  • Corrected the name of “Formula: Murkmire Lamp, Shell” to “Formula: Murkmire Candle, Standing Shell”.

Combat & Gameplay[edit]

Combat & Abilities[edit]

General[edit]
  • In our continuing efforts to improve server performance, we have refactored how Sprint functions on the backend and have made some changes to the design.
    • On-foot sprint will largely function the same as it has in the past, though we've decreased the Stamina cost of sprinting which will result in being able to sprint longer. You'll also notice the Stamina drain is more fluid in the UI.
    • Like on-foot sprint, mounts will now stop sprinting when their Stamina is fully drained. However, we've decreased the Stamina cost of mounted sprint and greatly increased both base Stamina and base Recovery for mounts.
    • We will be closing monitoring how these changes affect your ability to traverse Tamriel and are open to feedback based on your experiences.
  • In efforts to improve performance, the visual effects from some player abilities have been updated. These changes focus on which players can see specific parts of a visual effect, and when the visual effects should be removed from view. This is an ongoing process that will be maintained over time. Note that the caster of these abilities will not see much change, if any, while allies will see much less of the visual intensity. The following abilities have received adjustments:
  • Updated many of the more widely used Champion Point passives and nodes to be handled more efficiently on the server.
    • This is an ongoing process, and will be maintained when the Champion Point system receives adjustments in the future.
  • Updated the tooltip text for all Major and Minor buffs and debuffs to describe what they actually do on the character UI.
  • Destroying a siege weapon will no longer proc item sets.
    • Note that some item sets may still proc when they aren't supposed to in certain circumstances, which we will be fixing over the next few updates.
  • Siege Weapons that can proc status effects will no longer trigger item sets.
  • Continually rotating your camera and/or character while casting certain abilities will no longer delay the ability from being cast.
  • Fixed an issue where you could resurrect other players while remaining invisible.
  • Arrows will no longer blink in and out of existence as you bar swap.
  • Stun abilities such as Rune Prison or Petrify will no longer fail to stun targets that are not currently CC'ed or CC immune.
  • Fixed an issue where dealing Physical, Poison, or Disease-based Damage over Time would break stealth.
  • Pets that could not deal damage have now received therapy for their anger management, and will no longer attempt to pull their owners into combat with nearby enemies unless provoked.
  • Adjusted many knock back abilities to send the target flying faster, so they reach their end position sooner and can begin taking action quicker.
  • Adjusted the standards from Damage over Time abilities to no longer deal approximately 2.5x the damage of a traditional “spammable” attack, such as Force Shock or Lava Whip, and now deal approximately 1.25x the damage over their duration. Specific changes will be listed in the skill line section.
    • Area of Effect Damage over Time abilities will now once again mirror the damage of their single target counterparts, instead of dealing approximately 33% less damage. To ensure they do not always beat out their single target counterpart, they will now cost approximately 66% more resources per second to maintain than their single target counterparts, up from 30%. Their standard durations have increased to 10 seconds from 8 seconds as well.
    • Healing over Time abilities (both single target and Area of Effect) no longer adhere to the Damage over Time standards due to their limited application and accessibility. They have not received any adjustments this patch, but are being closely monitored.
    • Many morphs that change the behavior of their original parent (such as Eruption or Solar Barrage) are not fully adhered to some of these adjustments, such as power or cost, but have been kept within a range of power to ensure they do not wildly over perform compared to similar abilities.
  • Player sourced snares are now additive with movement speed, rather than multiplicative. This will reduce the overall effectiveness of snares in PvP scenarios.
    • Note that monsters will continue being special snowflakes with their own special rules.
  • Auras from abilities, such as Ebon Armory, will no longer fall off for allies when bar swapping from an active 5-piece bonus via weapons.
  • Abilities and item sets that grant Physical and Spell Resistances now grant an equal amount of both as a singular stat – Armor – rather than 2 separate stats.
    • Many item sets that granted X Spell or Physical Resistance now grant .5X Armor. This was done to ensure total power remains the same, with less variance in these stats.
      • Passives that grant a unique source of one have not been adjusted.
    • Major and Minor Resolve now grant an equal amount of Physical and Spell Resistance, and Major and Minor Ward have been discontinued.
    • Note that this has not yet happened to Fracture and Breach or forms of Penetration.
Buffs and Debuffs[edit]
  • Diseased: Fixed an issue where this status effect was reporting that it applied Major Defile, when it actually applied Minor Defile.
Dragonknight[edit]
  • Ardent Flame
    • Fiery Breath:
      • This ability and its morphs now last 10 seconds at base, up from 8 seconds.
      • Increased base cost to 3510, up from 2808.
      • Reduced the damage per tick of the Damage over Time portion of this ability by approximately 47%.
        • Engulfing Flames (morph): This morph's bonus Flame Damage taken now scales off your Spell Damage; 1% for every 333 Spell Damage you have, up to a maximum of the original 10%.
    • Searing Strike:

    • Stonefist:
      • Reworked this ability to be a Stamina based “spammable” attack. It now deals Physical Damage (like it used to at launch, since it's a ROCK) with a reduced range of 15 meters, down from 28.
      • Increased the damage by approximately 66%, but no longer deals double damage if the target was stunned.
      • This ability no longer stuns the target outright, but instead applies a stack of “Stagger” to the enemy. After 5 stacks, the enemy will be stunned by the next Stonefist cast at them, including from other Dragonknights. If the target was stunned, all stacks of Stagger are removed.
      • Reduced the cost of this ability to 3443 from 4050.
        • Stone Giant (moprh): This morph no longer grants Minor Resolve after casting, but instead enhances the “Stagger” mechanic where enemies affected take 25 extra damage from any attack, per stack. This effect cannot stack from multiple sources.
        • Obsidian Shard (morph):
          • This morph remains as a healer focused ability.
          • Increased the healing by 3.3%, since it was missing rank up progression.

    • Summon Shade:
      • Decreased the damage per hit of this ability and the Shadow Image morph by approximately 42% per hit.
      • Fixed an issue where the attacks from this ability and its morphs were heavily desynced from their animations.
        • Shadow Image (morph): The teleport for this morph is now 22 meters, down from 28, since this morph is meant to operate on our gap closer or creator standard. This also prevents confusion in areas where the tooltip range would increase for the teleport, but fail to actually increase.
        • Dark Shade (morph):
          • Decreased the damage per hit of the Dark Shade morph by approximately 15%.
          • Increased the radius of the area attack to 6 meters, up from 5 meters.
          • The Shade will now use its Area Attack on a set timer, rather than having a chance per attack.

Sorcerer[edit]
  • Daedric Summoning
    • Charged Lightning (synergy): Fixed an issue where this synergy was not properly applying the Major Berserk to the Atronach it came from.

      • Increased the cost of the special activate of this ability and the Volatile Familiar morph to 4500, up from 2808.

          • Decreased the cost of the special activate to 4500, down from 4808.
          • The Area of Effect attack now deals the same damage as the basic attack, but hits in a 6 meter radius, up from 5 meters.
          • Fixed an issue where the AoE attack would cause the Clannfear to re-evaluate its purpose in life for 1 second after casting, lowering its potential DPS.
    • Summon Winged Twilight: Increased the heal of this ability and the Twilight Matriarch morph to be closer to the heal power of Rushed Ceremony. This will result in approximately 87% increase for the base, and approximately 55% increase for the Matriarch. Note that these abilities will continue to scale exclusively with Max Magicka.
  • Storm Calling
    • Bolt Escape:
      • The fatigue from this ability and its morphs now apply only if you successfully teleport 1 meter or more, instead of whenever you activate the ability.
      • This ability and the Ball of Lightning morph no longer stuns targets in a 4 meter radius from your origin location, but instead stuns targets in a 6 meter radius at your final location.
      • Fixed an issue where you could become stuck in place after attempting to cast this ability or any of its morphs when a target was outside your line of sight.
        • Ball of Lightning (morph): This morph now ranks up in duration of the summoned ball of lightning, which now lasts 3 seconds at Rank IV, up from 2. This morph also adds 2 seconds of snare and immobilization immunity after teleporting.
        • Streak (morph): This ability now creates a cone behind you after casting that damage and stuns enemies inside of it. The length is now 17 meters with a 40 degree arc, rather than being a 4 x 15 meter rectangle. This means the ability will require more precise aiming when attempting to land on top of an enemy, but will require less precise aiming when attempting to cast near an enemy.
    • Lightning Splash:
      • Increased the base duration of this ability and its morphs to 10 seconds, up from 8.
      • Increased the base cost to 4950, up from 3024.

Templar[edit]
  • Aedric Spear

    • Puncturing Strikes:
      • This ability and its morphs will now snare the nearest enemy hit by 40% every time it deals damage, rather than snaring the nearest enemy hit by 70% on the final hit.

      • Updated the visual effects of this ability to better sync up with its attacks.
    • Spear Shards:
      • This ability and its morphs now last 10 seconds, up from 8.

  • Dawn's Wrath
    • Backlash: This ability and its morphs' final explosion can now Critically Strike. Boom baby.
      • Purifying Light (morph): The Heal over Time from this ability will now, as the tooltip insinuates, always apply after the effect ends via any means such as being purged, being recast, or ending naturally. The light cannot be stopped, and shall purify all! This also means that Purifying Light will count for 1 less negative effect from purging.
    • Eclipse: Fixed an issue where reapplying this ability or the Unstable Core morph to a target before the original expired could cause issues with the cooldown of the effects.
      • Living Dark (morph):
        • This morph now only snares targets for 60%, rather than immobilizing them.
        • Reduced the healing by approximately 10%.

        • Decreased the damage per tick by approximately 30%.
    • Sun Fire:
      • Fixed an issue where the Major Prophecy from this ability and its morphs would only occur if you dealt damage, rather than upon activation, as the tooltip states.

      • Increased the base cost to 2970, up from 2376.
      • Decreased the Damage over Time of these abilities by approximately 60% per tick.
  • Restoring Light
Warden[edit]
  • Animal Companions
    • Betty Netch:
      • This ability and its morphs now grant Major Brutality and Sorcery at base, but the base ability no longer restores Magicka every second while active.

      • Reduced the duration to 19 seconds from 22 seconds on the base ability.

          • Reduced the final duration to 25 seconds, down from 27 seconds

      • Reduced the damage of these abilities by 10%, and increased their base cost to 2700 from 2430.
      • If you are at least 12 meters from the target upon dealing damage with these abilities, you now set them Off Balance.
        • Cutting Dive (morph): This morph no longer reduces the cost of the ability beyond the standard Stamina cost reduction. It now applies a Bleed to the target for 7 seconds if they are Off Balance, which can stack up to 7 times.
    • Swarm:
      • Increased the cost of this ability and its morphs to 2970 to encapsulate their new functionalities.
      • These abilities now apply Minor Vulnerability to the target for the duration of the DoT.
      • Decreased the damage per tick of these abilities by approximately 50%.
        • Growing Swarm (morph): This morph has been redesigned into a Stamina-based ability that deals Bleed Damage. The Swarm no longer spreads to nearby enemies upon completion, but instead deals damage to enemies in an area around the initial target. This damage is roughly 25% of the initial target's coefficient.
  • Winter's Embrace
    • Arctic Wind: This ability and its morphs have regained the original function of Arctic Blast, and deal Frost Damage in a 6 meter area around the caster while the Heal over Time persists. This damage scales with your Max Magicka and Spell Damage, to prevent compounded power for tank builds.
      • Arctic Blast (morph): This morph no longer converts the ability into an awkward projectile stun. Instead, this ability has inherited Permafrost's old functionality, where enemies hit 3 times in rapid succession with the ability are stunned. This stun cannot be blocked.
    • Crystallized Shield:
      • Crystallized Slab (morph): This morph now has a 500ms internal cooldown on the damage return and Magicka refund, similar to other abilities such as Dragon Fire Scale or Living Dark.

        • Increased the snare potency to 70%, up from 40%.
        • Each tick of damage now applies the Chilled status effect to enemies hit.

    • Critical Charge:
      • Stampede (morph): Increased the duration of this morph to 10 seconds, up from 8, and reduced the damage per tick by approximately 42%.

    • Reverse Slash:
      • Reverse Slice (morph): Fixed an issue where the AoE damage of this ability could critically strike. Since the initial hit can already critically strike, this was effectively allowing the attack to double crit, contributing to a tremendous power spike.
    • Uppercut: Reduced the damage dealt by this ability and its morphs by approximately 16% to ensure it does not eclipse other damage abilities such as DoTs.
      • Dizzying Swing (morph): This morph no longer knocks the target back and stuns them, but instead sets them Off Balance for 7 seconds.

        • Quick Cloak (morph): This morph now also offers cost reduction, taking the base cost to 3780.
  • Bow
    • Poison Arrow: Decreased the damage per tick of this ability and its morphs by approximately 63%.
    • Rapid Fire:
      • Ballista (morph): Updated the tooltip of this ability to show its true range, to prevent confusion in areas where you could increase your range yet fail to actually increase the range of the ability.
    • Scatter Shot:
      • Draining Shot (morph): This morph no longer knocks back targets hit, but instead reduces their movement speed by 60% for 3 seconds.
    • Volley:

World[edit]

      • Fixed an issue where the application of these abilities could not be dodged, and where each tick of the damage could be dodged.
      • Updated the visual effects to better line up with the animation of these abilities.
      • Reduced the damage per tick of this ability and its morphs by 50%.
  • Werewolf
    • Infectious Claws:
      • This ability and its morphs now immediately apply the Diseased status effect to enemies hit, and do Disease Damage rather than a hybrid of *** Physical and Disease Damage.
      • Decreased the damage per tick of these abilities by approximately 60%.
        • Claws of Life (morph): This morph now heals for 100% of the damage caused, instead of 50%. This will still result in an overall reduction, since the base damage has been reduced.
    • Werewolf Transformation: Fixed many issues where this ability could persist without meeting the proper requirements.

      • Scalding Rune: Reduced the damage per tick of this morph by approximately 60%.
  • Psijic Order
    • Mend Wounds: Fixed many issues with the animation of the Heavy Attack of this ability and its morphs. You can no longer attempt and fail to heal the wildlife (critters) of Tamriel with the Heavy Attack from these abilities, for their frail bodies cannot handle the power you wield. This also fixes an issue where your character would erratically convulse when attempting to channel these abilities on a target you couldn't actually target.
  • Undaunted
    • Spawn Broodlings: Fixed an issue where the spiders spawned from the synergies and the other morphs would merely fade out of existence upon death, rather than displaying their death animations and then fading out of existence.
    • Trapping Webs:
      • This ability and its morphs now last 10 seconds, rather than 5.
      • Fixed an issue where the synergies granted from these abilities were lasting longer than the ability that housed it.

  • The Orrery of Elden Root: Fixed an issue where Ayrenn's line, "I must not delay," was in fact far more delayed than it probably should be. Sorry, your majesty, not to harsh your mellow or anything, but we gotta do this thing on schedule.

Mournhold

  • Seeks-Her-Glory now seeks her glory against your FACE if you decide to attack her, rather than standing still by the chair and contemplating how best to get shot at without retaliation.

Reaper's March

  • Fixed an issue where three NPCs in the Rawl'kha Outlaws Refuge were erroneously flagged as guild traders in some hidden data.
  • Grim Situation: Shazah will now properly fight when prompted, and will no longer do weird stuff if you interact with her before she starts the final ritual.

Shadowfen

  • A copy of Darkest Darkness has been unearthed from the soil in Shadowfen.
  • Last One Standing: The area pin for the step to kill Tsanji is no longer ridiculously huge.
  • The Thin Ones: Clavicus Vile was ordered by the Tamriel Architecture Foundation to make sure that both sides of a door to his chapel in Stillrise Village conformed to specifications. In particular, the door should look the same on both sides and not let you see out into the world between worlds. Maybe next time, Chucky Vile.

Stonefalls

  • Climbing the Spire: Destroyed wards will now properly reappear in the event you abandon this quest.

Witches Festival

  • Fixed an issue where, if you summoned Witchmother Olyve and then ran away from her, there would be no talk-to pin overhead when you resummoned her.

UI[edit]

General

  • Fixed a bunch of old typos and incorrect hyphen usage in certain terms.

Gameplay

  • Combat text will now display the damage absorbed by absorb shields you place on other players.

Help & Tutorials

  • Updated Help text for the Undaunted in DLC sections.
