PTS Patch Notes v2.6.2

OVERVIEW
The Elder Scrolls Online v2.6.2 is an incremental patch on the PTS that includes several new features and addresses several issues. We’ve enabled Crown Crates for testing, in addition to turning on the New Life Festival for a short time. We’ve also made many itemization-related fixes and addressed numerous issues in dungeons and Craglorn. Improvements are ongoing with several Weapon Ultimates, and we also fixed a longstanding issue where your character’s movement speed had decreased in a previous update.

All European characters have been copied from the PC/Mac Live megaservers, and will be available for the duration of this testing cycle.

We appreciate all the feedback and bug reports that have been submitted so far, and hope you enjoy this latest patch which is approximately 180MB in size.

    TEMPLATE UPDATES
    • We've updated the Crafter's Limitless Library, a PTS-only item. It now contains the Celestial and Draugr style books, if you have not learned those styles from some other source. We've also removed the Morag Tong style book from it, as that Motif isn't actually available for crafting in the game. (Yet.)
    • Fixed an issue where the PTS template bags did not contain jewelry for the Celestial Trial sets (Berserking Warrior, Defending Warrior, etc.)

    • Maelstrom Arena currently provides twice as many rewards as intended.

    I really hope this doesn't mean Maelstrom weapons drop in normal?

    Yes I agree. This adjustment made to maelstrom dual wield weapons was a good decision. 2000 weapon damage is still huge.

    However, I am a bit surprised about the buff to Sword Signer.

    Whoops, yeah. 180MB is not correct. We're working on getting a new estimate, but in the meantime we'll just remove that from the Overview. Thanks for the heads up!

    grinding time don't justify a weapon being ovepowered. We all know that for PvE, vMA daggers are OP, there is nothing that comes even closer to them. That being said, they are probably still going to be BiS for most of the builds (maybe except for stamblades and templars?), so your time grinding is still well invested.

    I don't think maelstorm weapons will drop from normal.
