PTS Patch Notes v1.6

  • Emity

    Thank you for this Patch Notes. Still. You didn't mention about game optimization. You only mentioned that for Ultra settings you need a 2 GB Video Card. Did you manage to optimize the game so that the game can ran perfectly on high-ends systems NOW ? Since even people with video cards and CPU's (GTX 760/770/780 /970 /Titan and CPU I5/I7 ) wasnt be able to play ESO smoothly ( in every situation) with any performance issues on Ultra Settings. Hope there is gonna be a big difference in optimization of the game.

    New racials ?!? where are they, or you just try to tell me my Dunmer will be useless as DK if i run stamina build (because of Flame Talent- increase SPELL dmg with fire efects) ? Ok, you change most class skills to use stamina, nothing wrong here , but PLS adjust racials also. Thanks
    no racial changes in update 1.6, official statement here in the thread.
    "some time in the future", "still on the list", etc.

    Oh no... Never thought I would be complaining on the forums, but you scare me with adjusting Cinder Storm/Ash cloud!

    As a Tank I like this ability. Is it possible to drop the snare part and/or lower the amount of miss chance, isntead of removing it completely?
    Templars lost their version of it "blinding light" too.
    shame, but what can you do.

    An error message will now display when you try to use a quick slot item from the main inventory.

    Does this mean we will no longer be able to pick up an item in the main inventory, click quick slot button, then slot it there?
    This is currently the only viable work around for the quick slot menu scrolling back to the top during combat in Cyrodiil.

    Shadow Cloak

    Fixed an issue that could allow heavy attacks to hit another player character who had activated Shadow Cloak if the ability had been activated while the heavy attack was in the process of charging.
    Fixed an issue where the effects from this ability would stay visible when the target receiving the shield would go into stealth.
    Shadowy Disguise (morph): This ability now makes the next attack a guaranteed crit. Reduced the cost of this morph by 10%.

    Could a fellow Nightblade who has gotten the patch downloaded already please check the functionality of bolded/underlined for me?

    Presently, on live, this skill gives 100% Weapon Crit and 100% Spell Crit.
    Currently use the Spell Crit buff to enhance my heals on my Resto staff healer build.

    Could somebody check for me and verify that after the changes this skill no longer makes heals crit and only applies to attacks? :(

    In Update 6, trophies will not go in the Collectibles area. This is something we'd like to do in the future (if we do, it would be after Update 6.)

    [*] Silver Bolts
    • Decreased the base damage done by Silver Bolts by 80%, but increased the proc chance to 30% from 5%.

    Am i the only one to think that is overpowered? I mean... Right now, my banish damage is over 2000, and my weapon damage is pretty low as I'm a magicka build. 30% chance to deal over 2000 damage seems live overkill. I can hear all the crossbows in Cyrodiil already. That sounds like a werewolf/vampire nerf. Correct me if I am wrong.

    Also very sad to see that we are still stuck with a 30 minutes stage 1. Whoever thought that was long enough did not think long.

    All this bickering about Sta vs Magicka resource stuff. Honestly, why not just do away with one of them and go to a generic resource pool for all abilities?

    The game is 8GB, and audio is another 6GB. You should be downloading a total of 14GB.

    Can't you guys just reduce the healing of critical surge to like 35% or 40% and get rid of that 1 second cool down?

    Agreed. I absolutely hate cooldowns, and actually hoped they would remove them from enchantments as well and actually make them a bit useful ...

    [*] Werewolf
    • Decreased the amount of damage you take from poison to 40% from 50%.
    • Blood Rage
      • Using this passive will now increase the amount of time you are transformed as a werewolf by 3 seconds every time you take damage.
      • This passive now has a 3 second cooldown.
    • Devour
      • Fixed an issue where this ability would appear to blink.
    • Howl of Despair
      • Feeding Frenzy (morph): The Synergy prompt for this ability will now properly disappear when you can no longer use it.
    • Infectious Claws
      • Slightly adjusted the animation for this ability so it no longer gets clipped by a light attack.
    • Roar
      • Rousing Roar (morph): This ability now grants the Major Brutality buff for 5 seconds.



    When is the duration of the transformation going to be fixed? As it stands now the only way I can take o mobs and stay transformed for 2 min plus is by fighting mobs that are 25 or more levels lower than myself. I should be able to do it on any mob my level at the very least. people have been asking for this since pre-lanch is their an ETA or are we SOL?
    That which we obtain to cheap we esteem to lightly, it is dearness only that gives everything its value.

    So stamina builds and changing "some" class skill to stamina to make proper melee builds failed again. On dk you swap 2 flame dots to be stamina based, which is good, but you dont give Whip option to morph and be stamina based which failed whole melee concept.
    Same on NB, Concealed weapons with armor debuff should be stamina based, same as close range morph of Impale,

    This ... confusing... mass magicka etc. to get whip awesome, or go stam for other skills... cant use both now ? still a mish mash of mag/stam.

    also !! yay for Patch Notes :) <3 Gina

    •Once the system is live, the Imperial Edition Upgrade bundle and the Explorer’s Pack that are currently available on the web will be moved to the Crown Store for purchase.

    Umm, wasn't the Explorer's Pack a pre-order bonus that was not to be available again? I don't see where it's currently available on the web.

    You can buy it from pretty much any cdkey site for $2-$5 and from ebay as well. It's smart for them to do this and make some extra money from new players instead of letting cdkey vendors reap the benefits.
