Community Manager
Welcome to The Elder Scrolls Online v1.30.0.0 and the final DLC in this year’s Legacy of the Bretons adventure: Firesong! In this update, you can explore the island of Galen and dive deep into the culture and histories of Tamriel’s druids. While doing so, collect new item sets, unique collectibles, Antiquities, achievements, and more. You’ll also be able to discover a new Tales of Tribute Patron deck during your adventures through Firesong – The Druid King.

In the Update 36 base game patch, we’ve added a new Target Marker system that allows you to mark allies, enemies, and even yourself with a unique icon. There are also several Housing quality of life improvements, along with a new setting to hide pets around some of the more busy interaction stations in towns. For PvP, Emperor bonuses will now scale depending on how many home Keeps you own, and we’ve added Armory Stations in both Cyrodiil and Imperial City. This latest update is approximately 4.4GB for Xbox Series X and 40.9GB for Xbox One. Thank you and enjoy!

    Firesong DLC Game Pack

    New Zone: Galen
    Prepare to embark on a new adventure! In this update, you can travel to the northern most island of the Systres Archipelago – Galen – and uncover the secrets of the Druids and their connections to the Breton legacy!

      • Use the boat located in Daggerfall or Gonfalon Bay in High Isle
      • Traveling to a friend who is already in Galen
        • Once you have arrived in the island of Galen, seek Dhulef of the Mages Guild to get the first quest of the Main Story.
    • Firesong includes an exciting zone story, 2 new Delves, 2 powerful World Bosses, Volcanic Vent world events, and a wandering World Boss to test your skills.
    • Obtain new Item Sets found only in Firesong, as described below, and new Outfit and Housing rewards for completing select achievements and quest content throughout the zone.
    • Complete the zone stories in both High Isle and Firesong to unlock the year-ending questline and learn the truth behind the Ascendent Lord!

          Developer Comment:
          The Block Mitigation and Health Recovery only affects allies and not the set wearer. Use Shield Wall with this ability at your own risk as you won’t be able to move for the duration of the Ultimate.

    New Patron Deck: The Druid King
    With this update you’ll be able to discover a new Tales of Tribute Patron deck during your adventures through Firesong! The Druid King Patron rewards you for playing the right types of cards at the right time, and the order by which you play your cards is vital to ensure you get the best possible result.
    • You’ll unlock fragments of the Druid King Patron deck by completing a wide range of activities within the new zone of Galen, but note that in order the unlock the ability to play Tales of Tribute (and your new deck) you’ll still need access to the High Isle Chapter.

    Base Game

    Target Marker System
    We’ve added a new UI system that allows you to mark allies, enemies, and even yourself with a unique icon. Target marking can be used across all types of content including dungeons, Trials, PvP, and in the overland, and can also be used while in a group or solo.
    • By default, this feature is bound to the Tab key or the right D-pad on Gamepad. Simply hover over an entity and press Tab (or the right D-pad if on Gamepad). You can then select any icon in the wheel to apply the mark.
    • A mark may be removed by targeting an entity with a mark and selecting the same mark currently present on that entity.
    • Marks may be self-applied by bringing up the target marker wheel without a target selected, then selecting an icon.

    Hiding Pets in Towns
    A new feature is available in your settings to allow you to hide other players' pets (hereafter shorthand to mean summoned class ability pets like Winged Twilights and Warden bears, vanity pets, assistants, and Companions) around certain high-traffic objects in the game. Specifically, this includes daily crafting writ bestowal boards, daily crafting writ turn-in crates, and basic crafting stations.
    • Your own pets will not be hidden if this option is turned on, and if a player whose pets are hidden gets into a duel or combat while near the affected objects, the pets will reappear.
    • The setting can be found within the Gameplay menu, then toggling "Limit Followers in Towns.” Again, this is an optional feature you can turn on or off at your discretion!

    Housing Quality of Life Improvements
    We’ve added several improvements to the general housing system overall, including the following:
    • Visitors can now access the Retrieval tab of the Browse menu, which includes Modify, Set Destination, and Precision Edit access if their permissions allow it. If you do not have permission to edit the home, this mode is named “Inspection Mode”.
    • Added a display in the upper righthand corner, under the currently tracked quest, identifying the name of the current home, the homeowner, and the current number of visitors.
    • You can now share links to any of your homes via Chat or the Guild Message of the Day!
      • Links to your homes can be created from the Collections menu or from the House Information panel shown while in a home’s Browse/Inspection Mode.
    • We added the ability for you to cycle through targets using the Tab key in the Housing Editor’s selection mode. This makes selecting books in bookcases, fish in aquariums, and other items tucked away inside larger items easier.
    • Furnishings intended to hang on walls now align more naturally with surfaces, aligning flat to the surface instead of embedded at sideways in the surface.
      • Several hundred furnishings were adjusted to use this new tech across a large range of furniture categories, most notably Art, Banners, Mounted Decor, Paintings, Sconces, and Shelves, to name a few.
    • Furniture item tooltips now include the furniture Subcategory under the Category on the top left of a furnishing’s tooltip.

    Emperor Scaling in Cyrodiil
    The Health bonus for having an Emperor crowned for your Alliance will now scale depending on how many “home” or “natively owned” Keeps you have controlled by your alliance. For example, if you own all 6 of your home Keeps you’ll get the full bonus as Emperor, but for each of those you don’t own, the health bonus is reduced.

    The Emperor Passives also now scale in a similar way to the Alliance wide health bonus. For each of the 6 home Keeps your Alliance owns, the bonus will be up to its full value. For each one that is not owned by your Alliance, the passive benefits are reduced.

    Armory Stations in PvP
    Armory Stations have been added to portal Keep locations for each alliance in Cyrodiil and in each sewer entry in Imperial Sewers.

    Chat Narration
    A new accessibility setting is now available that will let you have the game narrate what is said in text chat channels out loud. This setting is off by default, and you can toggle it on by navigating to the Accessibility menu in Settings, then setting “Narrate Chat” to On. From here, you can also adjust the voice volume, speed, and type. Note that Accessibility Mode does need to be enabled for this option to be available.

    Daily Login Reward Timer Change
    In this update, your new daily login rewards will start being available at 3am UTC for European servers and 10am UTC for North American servers, rather than at midnight UTC regardless of region.

    • Motifs and style items from the Deadlands, High Isle, as well as additional ones from the Reach and Western Skyrim are now available as bonus loot. This ultimately fixes an issue where digging for bonus loot in these zones would sometimes yield an empty result. This includes:

      • House Hexos
      • Steadfast Society

    • Monsters in Kyne’s Aegis will now have a chance to drop purple gear in Veteran Mode.

    • Fixed an issue where Harrowstorm-specific Vampire Lords could get into a state where they could not be killed while flying.
    • Feasting in the Dark: Fixed an issue where using “Show on Map” to locate the world boss and tormented spirits wouldn't always show you the area where they are located.

    • Greymoor Rising: Fixed issue where Svana would sometimes not throw potion during the fight with King Svargrim. 
    • The Vampire Scholar: Fixed an issue where an invisible Tzinghalis and Rada al-Saran would have nameplates for a scene you're supposed to hear, but not see.

    • Fixed an issue where some ticking Area of Effect abilities could delay or miss their first tick, or could apply their effects out of sync with their tick rates.
    • Fixed an issue where re-zoning could cause your character to load a different ability bar in some rare cases.
    • Fixed an issue where Break Free’s animation could fail to play in situations when your character would be stunned mid-animation with effects such as Time Stop.
    • Death recaps will no longer taunt you with the concept of bringing a friend or using the grouping tool for solo arenas such as Maelstrom Arena.
    • Fixed an issue where bashing could clear your Heavy Attack inputs.
    • Fixed an issue where you could become stuck Heavy Attacking indefinitely after roll dodging while inputting a Light Attack. 
    • Fixed an issue where you could fail to receive the skill lines from purchasable options, including Werewolf or Vampire. 

    • Ardent Flame
      • Shifting Standard: Fixed an issue that would cause the Ability Bar Timer to reset after recasting the ability to move it.

    • Shadow
      • Path of Darkness: Fixed an issue with this ability and morphs’ Major Expedition where the visual effects could flicker and cause client performance issues.

    • Dawn’s Wrath
      • Backlash: This ability and its morphs have been slightly reworked.
        • The final damage now deals a guaranteed amount of damage based on your highest offensive stats, rather than dealing damage based on the damage it took from you over the duration and with a cap based on your Weapon or Spell Damage.
        • The final damage deals approximately 10% more damage than the initial hit at base and increases up to an additional 200% to reach similar values of power seen before.
        • The final damage now takes more overall damage to reach, to make the payout less reliably reached in PvP scenarios.
        • These abilities are now once again limited to having one active at a time, to fix numerous exploits and bugs with the ability. This means if you cast the ability on another target while it is active, it will remove the previous cast.
          • Power of the Light (morph): Increased the duration of Minor Breach from this morph to 7-10 seconds, up from 6-9. This effect is also no longer tracked over the base ability with the Ability Timers option enabled, to help you keep track of the core ability instead.

    • Animal Companions
      • Advanced Species: This passive now increases your Critical Damage done by 2/4%, rather than your Armor Penetration by 495/990.
        Developer Comment:
        We’re shifting this passive’s focus away from raw damage and more into Critical damage, to help focus the class’s natural tendency to burst foes down. This change should also help bring up Light Armor focused Wardens, while toning down some of the power that their currently much stronger Medium Armor cousins have.
      • Feral Guardian: Fixed an issue where the bear from this Ultimate and its morphs could get stuck in a loop of trying to cast Crushing Swipe repeatedly until it perished or was crowd controlled. It was just trying to make you proud.
    • Green Balance
      • Healing Seed
        • Budding Seeds (morph):
          • Fixed an issue where the final heal from this ability was centered on the caster, rather than the Area of Effect.
          • Fixed an issue where this morph’s heal on end or recast could return improperly based on the number of targets in the area.
    • Winter’s Embrace
      • Arctic Wind
        • Arctic Blast (morph): Removed the target cap from the damage of this morph, as the damage is no longer tied to stunning enemies.
      • Glacial Presence: This passive now increases the damage done by your Chilled status effect based on a value determined by your highest offensive stats, rather than adding 10% Critical Damage and Healing to recently Chilled targets.
        Developer Comment:
        It didn’t feel right having two passives that essentially did the same thing (between this and Advanced Species). As such, we're making Glacial Presence grant a bonus damage modifier that scales with your Offensive stats. This way, we don't need to worry too much about tankier builds getting a lot of power out of this passive, while helping the generic damage of the class go up when utilizing their kit and rewarding them even more if they are focused on Frost Damage as a whole. We're not too concerned about the potential Critical Healing loss here either since the requirement of an ally recently being Chilled was only applicable in PvP, where Warden healers specifically will be losing this small bit of power.
      • Piercing Cold: This passive now increases your damage done by 1/2% which increases to 6/12% while wielding an Ice Staff, rather than increasing your Magic and Frost Damage by 5/10%.
        Developer Comment:
        This passive was creating issues with morph choices in the class, as Wardens have a healthy mix of damage types outside of Magic and Frost. Many morphs that are meant to focus on damage are either close to or even eclipsed by the more utility driven morphs that retain Magic Damage, and the lack of more DPS focused Ice Damage abilities (since they are predominantly made for tanks or utility) create a situation where this passive isn’t helping the unique identity of Ice Mages keep up with other play styles. By shifting the focus of the passive over to generic damage that contextually gets stronger for the audience the passive is made for, we hope to help bring that playstyle up a bit more.

    • Bow
      • Volley: Fixed an issue where this ability and its morphs only used your Weapon Critical, rather than dynamically scaling with whatever was higher.
    • Destruction Staff
      • Weakness to Elements: Increased the duration of this morph to 30 seconds at its final rank, up from 20.
        • Elemental Drain (morph): This morph now increases the duration to 60 seconds at its final rank, up from 23.
        • Elemental Susceptibility (morph):
          • This morph now applies each elemental status effect (Burning, Chilled, AND Concussed) every 6 seconds, rather than applying a random of the three every 6 seconds.
          • This morph no longer gains extended duration and now lasts 30 seconds, down from 60.
          • Fixed an issue where the status effects from this ability could fail to apply.
          • Increased the range to 35 meters at rank IV, up from 33 meters.
          Developer Comment:
          We’re moving around some of the morph diversity here to reinforce use case and define the power of each. Since Elemental Drain focuses on being more of a pure debuff, the duration extension feels more appropriate there, while Elemental Susceptibility reinforces the offensive bonuses we added a few patches back. 
    • Two Handed
      • Cleave: Fixed an issue where there was a noticeable delay between the attack animation and the damage applied to an enemy from this ability and its morphs.

    Alliance War
    • Assault
      • Vigor
        • Resolving Vigor (morph): Reduced the healing from this morph by approximately 10%.

    • Khajiit
      • Robustness: This passive now increases your Health, Magicka, and Stamina Recovery by 90 at their final rank, rather than your Health Recovery by up to 100 and your Magicka and Stamina Recovery by up to 85.

    • Occult Overload:
      • Reduced the damage per stage of this star to 1037, down from 2560.
      • This node now also applies a random status effect to enemies hit.
      • Added a cooldown of 1 second, to prevent cascading effects.
      • The damage no longer has a maximum target cap of 6.
      Developer Comment:
      We’re toning down some of the burst damage of this effect, as well as its prevalence to operate like Vicious Death where it can cause cascading booms when you kill a large number of targets at the same time. The star doesn’t have enough drawbacks to justify the ease of access to instantly kill large groups of enemies, as well as being a bit overboard when used in tandem with other effects. To make up for this, though, we’re adding some more self-synergy to the effect where it will reward more booms back-to-back if you can manage to kill the affected targets within the time frame of the status applied, so it feels more controlled in risk reward situations rather than random.
