    Orc is bad
    Dark Elf Vampires are dommed, Imperials 1% gold gain? bretons and High Elf are further improved along with Khajit and Nords, Argonians are now called healers..

    Why even bothered Orc and Wood Elf?

    Redguard buff is funny indeed, who wants Consumed Food duration buff?

    Orc is badass strong as certain builds anyway and now the 5% healing received will make it even stronger in pvp
    Wood elf is already the best pvp ganker.

    NEW FEATURES / UPDATES / BIG CHANGES

    World Building
    A few new buildings were added to several zones, and the zone maps were updated accordingly. These buildings are not accessible at this time. In some of these locations, wildlife, and/or bystanders were removed or adjusted to make way for the new construction. In addition, some residents have been moved from their homes, and those buildings are no longer accessible. These changes are in preparation for the upcoming release of Player Housing.[/b]

    There better have been due process for the residents of Tamriel who were relocated, many of which are very low income and had lived in those areas for generations. Also, I hope a full environmental impact assessment was completed to determine how to mitigate for lost wildlife habitat caused by this new construction.

    • Fixed an issue where the weapon charge depletion sound was playing upon exiting a conversation.

    I must admit, that went better than I expected.

    I am not seeing a lot to complain about after the first read.

    Also, I suspect that they are going to stage in additional changes not listed here over the next few weeks. These are not the final patch notes.

    @ZOS_JessicaFolsom is this the full notes. Really no SORC changes. No DK changes. Just a visual change and call it George. LOL get ready for a second round of forums. I just know now not to waste my time contributing to them...

    You've wasted your time posting in this thread 3-4 times already, the reason no sorc changes were made is because the vast majority of players aren't seeing the issues you are, since they've taken time to learn and adapt. L2P issue

    Yes yes yes L2P and all that uh huh good job kid :wink:

    The sorc problems are real. I guess everyone *but* you sees them. You just aren't hearing as much about them anymore because most people have accepted that Zos is too incompetent to balance classes in their game and have move on to other things/other games.

    You buffed the strongest stamina class in the game, in Khajits. Why did you think this was a good idea? The only reason behind this buff is to force people to change to khajit and make money. Give us another option for stamina. What the hell?

    hell right man, because we know most of all are imperial and redguard, so we buff khajit so all buy clown store race change

    Nothing new for Sorcs. Just a crap class forever more and now this necropotence nerf, the only damn thing I had to look forward too. Screw it. Just delete the SORC class. Wow does ZOS just suck. Thus was the last shred of belief I had in this company.

    Wow, what a drama queen.

    I'm guessing you have (or will have) an Argonian Healer. Because no-one in their right mind will want Agonians for anything else now.

    At least before, there was some utility in boosting healing received (for both DPS and Tanks), but what use is healing done for anything other than a healer?

    There's no diversity here at all. Absolutely none.

    [*]Necropotence: This item set’s Max Magicka bonus has been changed to a flat value instead of a percentage.

    Oh I knew it. How was I naive to believe, that ZoS would just buff something for a change instead of buffing and nerfing at the same time.

    Now I wish it would just stay V12 instead. What's the point when the V16 version is much worse than as the V12 version is right now.

    Can't have them buffing pets in any way now can we! ;)

    When you entered the appearance changer screen to take a note of your character appearance bar details and the like and then exit, or only when you make changes, confirm them and then exit?

    There were no magic updates or ability changes inferred or promised. So much qq. At least they didn't break the racial passives.

    racial changes ain't a win... very dissapointed. Especialy with no removal of the skill line passives...
    The "play the way you want" sort off gets more and more negated with these updates...
    I hope we better get free racial changes... they change the passives... I don't like it at all...

    The token is consumed when the changes are finalized. Mess around all you want at no cost :)

    Badum tsss... Balance by ZoS... at least I will be able to switch my races on my magica chars to make them stamina (smart move, and in the next DLC magica classes get buffed so everyone who wants to stay competetive will switch again) and goood bye all magica toons :)

I'm sick and tired of hearing about Cadwell Silver&Gold as a "you think you do but you don't"-tier deflection to any criticism regarding the lack of overland difficulty in the game." - @AlexanderDeLarge

    Hi ZOS, time to recognize a mistake has come. Just remove champion system from game. All will tell you thanks and it will be simpler to you to balance game. Less balance problems, less lags at Cyrodiil etc.
