    FIXES & IMPROVEMENTS, BASE GAME PATCH

      • Rapid Mending: Fixed an issue where this passive ability’s Heavy Attack resource restore bonus was applying even when you did not have 5 pieces of Heavy Armor equipped.

    Guild
    • Fighters Guild
      • Ring of Preservation (Circle of Protection morph): Fixed an issue where this morph was increasing the cost of Roll Dodge rather than decreasing it.

    Alliance War
    • Support
      • Battle Resurrection: Fixed an issue where this passive was functioning inside the Imperial City Prison and White-Gold Tower dungeons.

    Racial
    • Khajiit
      • Cutpurse: Fixed an issue where this passive’s pickpocket bonus was not stacking with the Light Fingers passive pickpocket bonus.
    • Nord
      • Reveler: Fixed an issue where this passive’s drink bonus was not stacking with the Gourmand passive drink bonus.
    • Redguard
      • Wayfarer: Fixed an issue where this passive’s food bonus was not stacking with the Connoisseur passive food bonus.

    Quests & Zones
    Grahtwood
    • Unsafe Haven: The quest item to allow you to eavesdrop on NPCs will no longer function oddly (such as allowing you to eavesdrop on the recently deceased).

    Shadowfen
    • Fangs of Sithis: Barvyn will now properly respawn if you die to him, and later run back through the space to reach him.

    So this is no longer a DPS race provided you have >4 people up at any given time? Good. She's unnecessarily hard because of all the stuff going on in addition to having to deal with pins.

    ZOS being ZOS again . Normal mode is giving the purple jewelry already . Why do you nerf the hard content ? Our group at first time , we wiped at Ozara for 3-4 hours . Not even talking about the other times . You know for what ? All because of the very little difference between purple and gold jewelry . You should be awarding progressive players for their effort . Casual players can still use purple jewelry . That is the point of playing a MMORPG . You need to give everything you got to get the best . There was no need to nerf hard content . I don't even know why I am still bothering about this , you guys nerfed vCoA while it was being done solo ...

    Note : I don't mean any offense to casual players . It just doesn't feel so nice when you spend hours to take down a boss and that boss gets a huge nerf .

    Looks like still no fix for the "ESO has stopped working, Windows is looking for a resolution..." bug when you quit ESO.

    Really glad to hear about the minor slayer and ageis buff, but sort of shocked you're choosing to nerf Ozara's pin mechanic. It's not like it's hard.

    If you run in Trials and you wonder why you're not doing the sorts of damage you see on youtube videos and on forums, but you reject advice based on extensive testing, claiming "I don't agree" you're the toxic one.

    @ZOS_GinaBruno I really wish devs would comment on how everyone hates the bound armaments new visual. Please fix before sending to live.

    Better yet, just make the bonuses apply when on bar (ala magelight/Evil Hunter.) I hate accidentally disabling Bound Armor if bar switch doesn't fire. It's not a skill that needs a visual. No one's going to fight you differently in PvP just because you have a couple more thousand stam, ~4% more mitigation and a slightly boosted heavy attack.

    It would be nice if they would also fix Bombard's broken animation that never fires in the direction you're aiming, and instead fires in the direction your character is facing.

    Hmm is this a direct reaction on this thread? -> bombard-root-theres-not-a-thread-about-it

    If yes, you listen to us!? Iam shocked. :smile:

    Great fix, thank you.

    @Wrobel please make Minor Slayer and Aegis to affect pvp. With revamp of old sets they all, including trial sets, will become very strong for pvp, unlike sets from MoL.

    It should never affect on pvp, minor slayer gear is not everyone have and even on trials it should be limited to bosses only.

    My question is if this change only applies to normal SO, as the title doesn't say 'Veteran Sanctum Ophidia." @ZOS_GinaBruno

    ... minor slayer gear is not everyone has and even on trials it should be limited to bosses only.

    Well that's patently absurd. It's too weak to only influence damage on bosses, and the choice to make it work on all mobs is an indirect answer to concerns posted by @Gilliamtherogue who (while I don't entirely agree) made some excellent points on the level of increased difficulty of the mobs as well as bosses. This makes the gear useful in providing fun and long content without the grind the mobs in Vet Maw, Vet Sanctum, and soon to be Hel Ra and Archive have become.
