    Server selection is now done at the login screen rather than in the launcher. You can change the server you log into by selecting the new “SERVER” option in the left menu.

    Does this still mean we are downloading 2 copies of the game to use both though?

    I hope it means we won't need 2 different clients for basically the same game...

    That's what I am hoping for. Maybe that's why they started doing maintenance at the same time? @ZOS_GinaBruno if you know the answer could you please enlighten us? :)

    All set drops from dungeons and Trials are bind-on-pickup.
    This sounds like a mistake, if not, what the hell is that change? You want people to be broke? How do you expect people to be raid ready?

    Wtf is this

    Don't forget you can trade within your group.

    @Nifty2g and if I read the patch notes right, many sets previously locked behind trials will now be available in open world PvE. For example, looks like you can get silks of the sun jewlery by completing dolmens in stonefalls. Take that people price gouging on sun set pieces!

    Looks like you're right... That's an interesting change... I see Red Mountain there also...

    let me group with my guild merchant so that I can "trade" it for gold

    The sets that aren't BIP are now available in other areas. For example, Silk of the Suns is one of the stonefall sets.

    @ZOS_GinaBruno

    Well that's the issue, seeing as I run high end dungeons and Trials

    This mainly puts a massive hindrance on trials especially, if I was raid leading most people can't get the best gear anymore, they wont be getting invited to raids or anything like that if they are wanting to start out, I understand that the best gear is already Bind on Pickup, but your other option is Bind on Equip gear and after that is crafted gear

    Not only that but right now the economy is utter crap, removing Bind on Equip from trials just ruins raiders too, we can't sell gear to the community, we can't buy anything because of it either, I just don't understand what this will achieve, are you trying to cause more PUG and group finder groups to sell your loot within groups to each other, because friends dont do that with each other, and most people wont run in them anyway because of the gear issue

    That is just my opinion, personally I think it's a very unhealthy addition and will just breed more elitism and divide raiders apart from the experienced and non experienced

    Actually getting the gear like the sun set for instance, won't be an issue, as it will drop in normal overland content (stonefalls) now also.

    I agree it hurts people selling it though...

    This is completely ridiculous the class balance is worse than it has ever been and they dont change it whatsoever, for

    No it is not. It is the same.

    What? Its the same as it has always been? Or are you saying the same as last patch, which is what i meant? Class balance is trash and they didnt change it. Period.

    Not happy about "Heresy of Ignorance: You must now be near your groupmates to share credit for disrupting the obelisks."

    Why? Why? Why? Is this intended to drag out the quest?

    Updated the way Provisioning recipes drop as follows:
    • Recipes in Cyrodiil, the Imperial City, and Dungeons now drop based on your rank in the Recipe Improvement passive.
    • In other zones, recipes drop based on your passive rank 75% of the time, and the rest of the time drop the same way they dropped prior to One Tamriel, by zone.

    Excellent! I was wondering if lowbie recipes were going to be completely blocked for high-level players or not. This was a very cool way of handling things. Good job ZOS!

    Hold up guys I cant go to trials tonight I have to farm solo for my gear

    Yeah, sounds good doesn't it ;) I can't support this change what so ever, just doesn't seem right, not only do I help people farm for gear and trade it with them if they are offline or something and helping friends complete gear sets who are not in my group, but now they have to farm SOLO for it, as if Maelstrom wasn't enough

    Sounds like VMA.

    @Bluepitbull13 true, but farming trials requires tracking down 12 people that can run the trial at the same time I can (not convenient). Writs are a waste of mats after the change. Could I steal/farm/flip to get the 1.5-2mil gold needed to buy sun jewlery, a sharpened 1H, and a shield? Sure. But is it worth it when I know it will drop in price? Nope. Would rather keep rockin my torugs pact+willpower in PvP (which is what I really want to do), while I wait for update 12.
