PTS Patch Notes v3.0.0

Welcome to The Elder Scrolls Online v3.0.0, introducing our first chapter: Morrowind! The fate of the island of Vvardenfell hangs in the balance and needs a hero to help Vivec, the legendary warrior-poet god, who suffers from a mysterious illness. For this week's first PTS testing cycle, we'll be focusing on the new player experience. To help us test the Vvardenfell story, please create a new character.

In addition to Vvardenfell, the largest landmass addition to date, we’re also introducing the first new class since ESO launched: the Warden. This class is an adaptable, support-orientated option for players who want to be able to fill a specific role while simultaneously providing assistance to others. If you are interested in a class that uses the wilds of Tamriel to protect, heal, or deal damage (occasionally all at the same time) the Warden is for you.

Morrowind also brings a new PvP mode – Battlegrounds – which are small-scale, fast-paced battles with three teams of four players. If you’re looking for a real challenge, head to our newest 12-player Trial, Halls of Fabrication, featuring a Normal and Veteran version. You're welcome to utilize an existing, copied character or template to test these new systems. You’ll also find a host of new item sets, Motifs, homes and furnishings, collectibles, titles, and even dyes.

But that’s not all! The base game brings many new updates as well including updates to the Champion System, the Master Writ Merchant, Cyrodiil Rewards, a new Inverse Kinematic System, and more. And as always, we have a number of bug fixes and general improvements to the overall game.

Please remember if you are participating on the PTS and giving us feedback, the entire update is currently covered under a strict NDA. If you’ve received an email invitation to join us in testing Morrowind content, we’d ask that you post your feedback in this forum section. All other discussion surrounding the base game can still be posted in the regular PTS forums.

We look forward to hearing what you think of ESO's first chapter, which is 9.7GB in size. Thank you, and enjoy!

    Travel to the volcanic island of Vvardenfell and explore a land of Dark Elves, Living Gods, and bizarre creatures as adventurers from every alliance answer Lord Vivec’s call. An ominous prophecy and an insidious plot threaten all of Vvardenfell—can you save the island from a looming disaster? Wander the harsh landscape as an emissary for Lord Vivec, performing missions for the Great Houses, delving into mysterious ruins, and meeting unique challenges head-on in the shadow of the rumbling Red Mountain. The fate of Morrowind rests in your hands!
    • If using a copied character or a template, you can do one of the following to travel to Vvardenfell:
      • Open your Collections, select Stories and then Morrowind under the Chapters tab. From there, you can accept the starting quest.
      • To get to Vvardenfell, seek out the navigator, Captain Jenassa, located near the docks in the major cities throughout Tamriel. Talk to her and she will offer to transport you to Vivec City or Seyda Neen.
      • You can also take a boat located in Mournhold, Wayrest, or Woodhearth.
    • If creating a new character:
      • Create a new character and select Play Tutorial. You will start in a new tutorial designed specifically for Morrowind players.
      • Alternatively, you can choose Skip Tutorial. Your character will automatically start on the dock at Seyda Neen in the new Vvardenfell zone.

    New Public Dungeons
    Two new public dungeons are available for you to explore in Morrowind.
    • Nchuleftingth: Help Neramo the scholar uncover the secrets of Nchuleftingth and prevent an unscrupulous ruins robber from plundering ancient Dwarven technology. Explore the Ashlands in the east to uncover this Dwemer ruin.
    • Forgotten Wastes: On the northern coast, enter the Forgotten Wastes to explore ancient Dark Elf ruins and solve a murder mystery while dealing with evil cultists intent on resurrecting a long-lost Dunmer House.

    New Playable Class: The Warden
    Wardens have a strong set of abilities focused on supporting their allies, but they can also focus their skill selection and morphs on solo combat. If you like to take hits, deal damage, or heal, this class is for you. Wardens are able to summon icy barriers to protect their allies, sprout healing plants to restore them, and command a savage grizzly to attack their enemies. This versatile class uses the power of Y’ffre’s blessing to help deal with any situation. To read more about the Warden’s three skill lines – Animal Companions, Green Balance, and Winter’s Embrace – please visit our website article here.

    PVP Battlegrounds
    Welcome to Battlegrounds! Battlegrounds are fast-paced, small-scale PVP zones designed for three teams of four players each. Alliance affiliation doesn’t matter in this new PVP mode, so feel free to play with or against your friends and foes from Cyrodiil! To get into the fight quickly, simply open your Activity Finder, navigate to the Battlegrounds option, and queue. For a bit more information, keep on reading!
    • You can queue solo or with a group of 2, 3 or 4 players into a Battleground. Large groups cannot queue for Battlegrounds. 
    • When queued, you’ll be placed into one of three maps:
      • Foyada Quarry: Solid ground and lava pools play a key role in this open field battleground.
      • Ald Carac: An ancient Dwemer site recently excavated which offers close quarter battles and tight spaces.
      • Ularra: This overgrown Daedric site still resonates with ancient portals.
    • One of three game modes will be chosen at random when going into a Battleground:
      • Team Deathmatch: Get points for killing other player characters! This game mode also features Sigils of Power that spawn randomly during the match.
      • Capture the Flag: Grab the enemy relic and bring it back to yours, but your relic must be safe at home to capture an enemy’s relic.
      • Domination: Land grab at its purest.  There are four capture points to battle over to earn points.
    • There are three teams you’ll be assigned to when in a Battleground: Pit Daemons, Storm Lords or Fire Drakes.  The colors associated with these teams are Green, Purple and Orange, respectively.
    • Battleground matches last a maximum of 15 minutes, but can end early if the maximum score is reached. Game modes currently have a maximum score of 500 points.
    • When a Battleground ends, you’ll earn rewards based on whether your team came in first, second or third. Rewards include items, gold, XP and Alliance Points.
    • During a Battleground, you’ll earn Medals which are granted based on your actions to progress your team towards victory specific to each game mode. For example, in a Team Deathmatch game, you’ll earn Medals for getting killing blows or healing allies. In a Capture the Flag match, you’ll get Medals for capturing the flag, but not for kill streaks.
      • Medals influence the quality of a reward you’ll receive at the end of a match.  The more Medals you’ve earned, the better chance you have to get your item reward upgraded to blue or purple quality!
      • Medals have a score associated with them which are added onto one of three weekly Leaderboards. These Leaderboards are divided by game types, so you’ll only earn Medals for that Leaderboard type.  The three Leaderboards include:
        • Team Deathmatch: Only Medals from Team Deathmatch go into this Leaderboard.
        • Flag Games: Capture the Flag Medals and other “mobile flag games” to be added in future updates go into this Leaderboard.
        • Land Grab: Domination Medals and other “stationary banner games” to be added in future updates go into this Leaderboard.
      • At the end of the week, players on the Leaderboard will be awarded items based on their rank on the Leaderboards.
    • Leaving a Battleground before the match is over will incur a penalty. 
      • This is currently set to block you from queueing for another Battleground for 20 minutes, as well as suppress any AP-earning events.
    • All Battlegrounds currently restrict Champion Points.
    • You can pick up daily quests for Battlegrounds in one of two locations from a Battlemaster: in the Gladiator’s Quarters near Vivec City, or at the entrance for each Battleground.

    New Trial: Halls of Fabrication
    Through a mysterious twist of fate, an anomalous rift to a strange realm has opened beneath the freshly-grown tower of Tel Fyr, spilling eerily life-like automata into the world. Left unchecked, these machines threaten to subsume everything on the surface into their alien mechanical paradigm. Brave souls are needed to go beyond the rift and find the source of these dangerous machines and stop them from converting Tamriel into their own image. Joining forces with the renowned wizard and planar traveler, Divayth Fyr, you must overcome the unknown beyond the rift and be the first living souls to tread into the Halls of Fabrication. 
    • Halls of Fabrication is a 12-player Trial located in Morrowind, and features a Normal version in addition to a challenging Veteran version!
    • To enter Halls of Fabrication, you have two options:
      • Travel to the tower of Tel Fyr, located in eastern Morrowind.
      • Speak with Daynillo Rethul, located in Vivec City on the docks, to receive the quest To Tel Fyr which will direct take you to the entrance.
    • There are unique item sets available only within Halls of Fabrication which grant unique, group-based PvE bonuses.
    • Unique achievement awards are available for completing the Trial achievements. These include a unique skin, several titles, and unique housing items, all described in below.
    • The Veteran version of Halls of Fabrication will qualify anyone who completes the Trial for the Leaderboards.

    New Item Sets
    There are 15 new Item Sets available from a variety of sources:
    • 3 Item Sets available at crafting stations in Vvardenfell
      • Assassin’s Guile
      • Daedric Trickery
      • Shacklebreaker
    • 3 Item Sets available as drops throughout Vvardenfell
      • Infector
      • War Maiden
      • Warrior-Poet
    • 4 Item Sets available as drops in the new Trial, Halls of Fabrication
      • Automated Defense
      • Inventor’s Guard
      • Master Architect
      • War Machine
    • 5 Item Sets available as rewards in the new PvP Battlegrounds
      • Coward’s Gear
      • Knight Slayer
      • Impregnable Armor
      • Vanguard’s Challenge
      • Wizard’s Riposte

    New Crafting Motifs
    We’ve added four new Motifs for you to collect and craft!
    • The Ashlander style can be learned from the Ashlanders of Vvardenfell.
      • Motif chapters can occasionally be found as rewards for performing daily quests for Numani-Rasi or Huntmaster Sorim-Nakar.
      • The style item, Ash Canvas, can also be earned from the same quests.
    • The Buoyant Armiger style can be obtained from treasure chests and treasure maps across Vvardenfell.
      • Motif chapters are rare, but show up more often in higher-difficulty chests and treasure map chests. By quirk of fate, those who have proven themselves friends of the island and the living god Vivec are more likely to find its chapters or book than others.
      • The style item, Volcant Viridian, can be refined from Viridian Dust, which can be found uncommonly on any harvestable resource in Vvardenfell.
    • The Morag Tong style can be learned from the Hall of Justice in Vivec City.
      • Motif chapters can occasionally be found in Bounty Dispensations or Explorer’s Dispensations awarded to those who complete tasks for the Hall of Justice.
      • The style item, Boiled Carapace, can also be earned from the same quests.
    • The Militant Ordinator style can be acquired from the Battleground Supplies Merchant near Vivec City.
      • Each motif chapter can be purchased for Alliance Points from Colotarion, in the Gladiator’s Quarters.
      • The style item, Lustrous Sphalerite, can be refined from Dull Sphalerite, which is sold for Alliance Points from the same merchant.

    New Homes
    Three new properties are now available to move into in Morrowind.
    • Saint Delyn Penthouse: For the city-loving Dark Elf, there's no better choice of residence than the Saint Delyn Penthouse in the heart of Vivec City, on the Waistworks level of the Saint Delyn canton.
      • By completing the quest, "A Friend In Need", you can earn a modest inn room in the St. Delyn Canton of Vivec City.
      • This inn room can also be purchased for 3000 gold if your character has already completed the quest in the base game or if you already own another inn-room.
    • Ald Velothi Harbor House: On the coast north of Gnisis, this three-level home in the Redoran "bug-house" style comes with a walled courtyard, a nearby dock, and convenient access to the nearby ruins of Ashalmawia and Arkngthunch-Sturdumz.
    • Amaya Lake Lodge: Enjoy the opulent luxury of a country lodge built by the Dark Elves of an earlier, more expansive era—a walled estate with a grand multistory house, roof balcony, stable, storage building, a well, and room for a formal garden.
      • Both the Ald Velothi Harbor House and Amaya Lake Lodge homes require Morrowind achievements in order to purchase them with gold, and are also available for Crowns in furnished and unfurnished variants. Note that these two homes can be purchased for Crowns even if you do not have access to Morrowind, but leaving your new home will take you back to your last safe location outside of Morrowind.

    New Furnishings and Furnishing Plans
    Many new Furnishing Plans can be found across Vvardenfell in trunks, backpacks, and other common sources for recipes and plans. While they will only appear in Vvardenfell, they can be traded freely or sold on Guild Traders.
    • Four new Furnishers are available in Morrowind:
      • Drops-No-Glass, the Achievement Furnisher for Morrowind, can be found in Saint Delyn’s Inn in Vivec City.
      • Uzipa, a Home Goods Furnisher, sells a variety of volcanic stone, mushrooms, and plants, and can also be found in Saint Delyn’s Inn.
      • Llivas Driler and Brelda Ofemalen, the Battleground Furnishers, sell banners and relics associated with the Storm Lords, Fire Drakes, and Pit Daemons. They can be found in the Gladiator’s Quarters in Vivec City.
    • Xanil Theran, the Luxury Furnisher, continues to cycle his stock of unusual furnishings. This update’s themes will highlight Morrowind’s unique past, including furnishings associated with several of the most secretive and powerful entities to influence Morrowind’s history.
    • There are also a few unique sources of furnishings and plans with the launch of Morrowind:
      • Daedric Furnishing Plans
        • The reward chests for Dark Anchors across Tamirel now have a small chance to contain a Daedric furnishing plan.
        • These same furnishing plans can be found, more rarely, from slain humanoid Daedra, such as Dremora or Xivkyn.
      • Dwarven Furnishing Plans
        • Dwarven constructs and world objects within Dwarven ruins anywhere in Tamriel will rarely have plans for Dwarven machinery and pipeworks.
        • Dwarven constructs will also sometimes provide undamaged cogs and gears when slain, which you can display in your home.
      • Justice-Related Furnishing Plans and Furnishings
        • Some of the citizens of Vvardenfell are carrying new furnishing items or plans in their pockets. Perhaps you’ll help lighten their load?
        • A few of the more prudent islanders have stowed their favorite furnishings in safeboxes. Surely, these will be safe from any prying fingers…
      • Treasure Chests
        • The finest treasure chests in Vvardenfell will rarely contain new paintings specific to Morrowind.
      • Quest-Related Furnishing Rewards
        • Daily tasks for the Ashlanders of Vvardenfell will rarely reward furnishing plans for Ashlander dishware, or directly reward a type of dining knife Ashlanders favor.
      • Harvesting-Related Furnishing Rewards
        • Mushrooms and plants in Vvardenfell will rarely produce accompanying foliage or fungi when harvested. Beetles with fungal infestations may, as well.
      • Ancestral Tombs
        • Ancient Velothi ancestral tombs will also rarely have their own unique furnishings within their offering urns.

    New Collectibles
    A cornucopia of new collectibles await the avid adventurer in Morrowind. See below for details!
    • Costumes
      • Regalia of the Scarlet Judge: The famed vigilante known as the Scarlet Judge has upheld justice in Morrowind for generations, and has most recently been spotted near the town of Suran.
      • Sixth House Robe: Officially, there is no Sixth House, and these robes do not exist. Unofficially, Sixth House cultists in the Forgotten Wastes have been identified with fragments of these ancient robes in their possession. If one were to acquire all seven pieces, they might be able to reform them into an intact garment. What would such a relic be worth, to the right person?    
    • Furnishings
      • Vvardenfell Scale Model: Librarian Bradyn in Vivec City believes that completing such a model will reveal the location of the lost Library of Andule, an ancient repository of the knowledge of the Great Houses.
      • Assembly General (Trophy): Complete the Halls of Fabrication to bring home the head of this brazen behemoth.
      • Assembly General (Bust): Complete the Halls of Fabrication on Veteran difficulty to earn this tasteful bust of the Assembly General.
    • Head & Body Markings
      • Morag Tong Face & Body Tattoos: Assist Naryu Virian and the Morag Tong in and around Balmora to earn the right to display these striking tattoos.
      • Buoyant Armiger Body Tattoos: Be named Champion of Vivec to earn the right to wear the body tattoos of a Buoyant Armiger.
    • Mementos
      • Neramo’s Lightning Stick: Aid the artificer Neramo in the Dwarven ruins of Nchuleftingth to earn this shocking memento.
      • Dreamer’s Chime: Complete the quest “Echoes of a Fallen House” in the Forgotten Wastes public dungeon to recover this haunting bell.
      • Replica Tonal Inverter: Designed to temporarily disrupt the flow of energy in magical devices, help invent the device this replica is based on in your quest to aid Vivec.
    • Personalities
      • Telvanni Magister: Assist an Argonian slave in her meteoric rise through the ranks of House Telvanni, and learn to adopt the mannerisms of a Telvanni Magister.
    • Pets
      • Dwemer Theodolite: Sentries such as this one may have once been used to survey subterranean areas, and were likely involved in the construction of Nchuleftingth. It is theorized that some of the guardian constructs in this public dungeon may contain repurposed parts from defunct Theodolites, though finding a functional part would be a challenge for even a seasoned adventurer. With all seven parts, the mechanism could be reconstructed. Whether kept as a loyal pet or sold to the highest bidder, such a device would be sure to draw attention.
    • Skins
      • Fabrication Sheath: Proudly display your victory from Veteran Halls of Fabrication with this body sheath of burnished bronze!

    New Titles
    There’s never been a better time to seek your glory! Whether you choose to make your name on the isle of Vvardenfell, in Sotha Sil’s Halls of Fabrication, or in the high-intensity combat of Battleground matches, you can proudly display your accomplishments with one of 21 new titles (unlisted to avoid spoilers!)

    New Dyes
    This update introduces six new dyes, available for use at dye stations after completing various Morrowind-related achievements.
    • Colossus Brass: This rare dye, named for the distinctive sheen of the Dwarven Colossus, can be earned by completing Halls of Fabrication.
    • Vehk’s Mystic Blue: This rare dye is unlocked after… something…
    • Warden’s Moss Green: This common faded green can be earned by defeating a total of 100 Wardens in Battlegrounds or the Alliance War.
    • Firedrake’s Flame: Based on the heraldry of the Firedrakes, this uncommon dye can be earned by defeating 1,000 opponents in Battlegrounds.
    • Pit Daemon’s Poison: Based on the heraldry of the Pit Daemons, this uncommon dye can be earned by capturing 100 enemy relics in Battlegrounds.
    • Stormlord’s Lightning: Based on the heraldry of the Stormlords, this uncommon dye can be earned by seizing 250 capture points in Battlegrounds.

    For this update, we are supplying three character templates with 630 Champion Points (one Template per Alliance). Much like previous PTS cycles, you will have wayshrines unlocked in every zone's capital city (excluding starter zones). You will have all the same items available from the previous PTS testing cycle for Homestead, in addition to some new items made available in Morrowind:
    • The template contains a new item in your inventory, "Battleground Sets". This crate contains further crates, each of which houses the armor, weapons, and jewelry for item sets that can be earned and purchased by participating in Battlegrounds.
    • The container for Trials item sets has been updated, and now includes the item sets found in the Halls of Fabrication.
    • The container for Overland item sets has been updated, and now includes the item sets found in Vvardenfell proper.
    • The Crafter's Limitless Library, found within the Ultimate Crafting Crate, now includes the new Motifs found in Morrowind: Ashlander, Buoyant Armiger, Militant Ordinator, and Morag Tong.
    • Similarly, the Traveled Crafter's Crate now contains the style items needed to craft in these styles.
    • Much like with the Dragonknight, Templar, Nightblade, and Sorcerer classes, creating a Warden with these templates will start you with all class skill lines and individual skills fully maxed out.

    Campaigns
    • Cyrodiil campaigns are not currently available, but will be enabled in the coming weeks.

    Art & Animation
    General
    • The Telvanni Mage personality is not complete. You can still obtain and use it, but expect to see some rather odd behavior.

    Audio
    General
    • The final music and some VO for Morrowind is not yet fully implemented.
    • Some visual effects and special moments are current missing their sound effects.

    Dungeons & Group Content
    Halls of Fabrication Trial
    • The final boss, the Assembly General, has a possibility to enter a state where it will fail to fire abilities under certain circumstances. This will be resolved in a future PTS patch.

    Exploration & Itemization
    General
    • Many achievements are not yet functional, and will not advance as expected. This is most notable among Battleground achievements.
    • Many chairs in Vvardenfell do not yet support sitting. If it fits, you cannot yet sits.

    UI
    General
    • Death Recap entries may be missing some icons and attacker names. This is known, and will be resolved in a future PTS patch.
    • Some icons are not yet complete, and will currently appear as red question marks.

    Provisioning

    • Corrected an icon mismatch on the Major Brutality effect from Crown Warrior’s Elixirs.

    Art & Animation
    • Fixed an issue where the rocks from the Storm Atronach Senche and Storm Atronach Camel were not animating properly.
    • The Storm Atronach Camel mount’s eyes will now be placed properly on its face.

    General
    • Improved the loot you receive for killing quest bosses. You will now always receive an item the first time you kill a quest boss, with an increasing chance at the item being green or better quality depending on the boss's deadliness. At the top end, quest bosses have a small chance to instead drop a random set item.
    • Fixed an issue where you could skip a collectible Champion Rank reward when gaining a large amount of experience.
    • Any Item Set that had a 2, 3, or 4-piece bonus that granted either Spell Resistance or Physical Resistance has had that value increased by roughly 35%.
    • Treasure maps no longer display a required level as they can always be used regardless of level.
    • Fixed an issue where certain container items, such as the Wet Gunny Sack, were not properly categorized as consumables.

    Achievements
    • The Howling Sepulchers Explorer: Akiirdal no longer awards this achievement to everyone in Howling Sepulcher every time he’s killed.
    • Troll's Pick Explorer: Fixed an issue where this achievement could be completed by defeating Zizzikkiz’Tk in Ilthag's Undertower.

    Consumables
    • All cost poisons have been reduced in effectiveness. Instead of increasing enemy resource costs by 60%, they now only increase enemy resource costs by 30%.
      Developer Comments:
      Due to the significant global rebalancing of resource recovery abilities, cost poisons have been reduced in effectiveness.

    Dungeons & Trials
    • Leaderboard rewards for the Trial of the Week now match that specific Trial instead of being based on rewards from just Maw of Lorkhaj.
    • Fixed an issued where Mad Mortine in Spindleclutch II would award more items than intended under very specific circumstances.
    • Fixed an issue where Hollow Heart, from Blackheart Haven, had a chance to drop the items from Dubroze, from Elden Hollow. Hollow Heart will now instead have a chance to drop the Hollow-Heart Pendant, as originally intended.
    • Updated the text of the Leaderboard reward mail for Dragonstar Arena to specifically indicate that it is contains rewards associated with Dragonstar Arena.

    Holiday Events
    • Jesters Festival Dazzlers can no longer be used while mounted as using them while on your mount was leading to strange animation results.
    • Fixed an issue where an active effect would appear on your character sheet with every use of a Jester's Festival cherry blossom-throwing collectible or item.

    Item Sets
    • Fixed an issue that allowed Rings and Bands of the Shadow Walker, as well as Rings of the Hawk’s Eye, to appear with Armor enchantments instead of Jewelry enchantments.
      • This fix is retroactive, and will adjust any remaining incorrect enchantments on these rings to enchantments of the appropriate type.
    • Bone Pirate Tatters: Reduced the Stamina Recovery granted by this item set by 50% (150 Stamina Recovery at Gold CP160, down from 300).
    • Engine Guardian: Fixed an issue where some parts of the visual effects from the health beam proc were not displaying correctly.
    • Eyes of Mara: Fixed an issue where this item set was not reducing the cost of Panacea and its morphs.
    • Fasalla’s Guile: This item set now passively applies Minor Defile for 2 seconds to any enemy that comes within 5 meters of you.
      Developer Comments:
      Due to the significant buff to the Befoul Champion passive, Fasalla’s Guile was too powerful for a healing reduction item set that stacked with Minor and Major Defile.
    • Hircine’s Veneer: Increased the Stamina Recovery bonus granted by this item set to 12% from 10%.
    • Molag Kena:
      • Fixed an issue where the Overkill proc from this set would still trigger even when you did not perform 2 consecutive Light Attacks.
      • Reduced the Overkill cost penalty to 20% from 33%.
        Developer Comments:
        This fixes a long-standing issue with Molag Kena where you were able to proc the Overkill bonus through unintended means. Since many players have become used to the current behavior in addition to the significant resource recovery changes, we’ve reduced the penalty of Overkill to compensate.
    • Pirate Skeleton: Reduced the proc chance of this item set to a 5% chance when you take damage from a 6% chance.
      Developer Comments:
      Because this set was designed more for tanks, reducing the proc chance on this item set will limit the uptime it has for players who aren’t being hit very frequently.
    • Robes of Alteration Mastery: Fixed an issue where this item set was not reducing the cost of Sprint, Bash, or Block.
    • Shalk Exoskeleton: Fixed an issue where this item set’s Ultimate generation was causing you to become stuck in combat.
    • Sheer Venom: Fixed an issue where this item set’s proc was being mitigated off the target’s Spell Resistance instead of their Physical Resistance.
    • Stygian: This item set no longer increases your Spell Damage and Max Magicka by 20% while sneaking or invisible; instead, it increases your damage done with Magicka abilities by 20% while sneaking or invisible.
    • Swamp Raider: Fixed an issue where this item set’s bonus would unexpectedly proc when dealing damage under specific circumstances.
    • Troll King: This item set now procs when you heal a friendly target and they are still below 50% Health, reduced originally from 60% Health.
      Developer Comments:
      This item set was stronger than intended, and we wanted to reduce its power without changing the value of the Health Recovery it granted. Lowering the health threshold of the proc maintains the risk/reward gameplay of trying to maximize its uptime without it being too easy to maintain.
    • Twice-Born Star: Removing this set, or obtaining a third Mundus Stone buff while wearing this set, will now remove the older of the current two Mundus Stone buffs instead of the newest one.
    • Worm’s Raiment: Decreased the Magicka ability cost reduction granted by this item set to 4% from 5%.
      Developer Comments:
      The reduction to this set (and the buff to Hircine’s Veneer) will bring the average resource recovery per second closer in line with one another.

    Quests Rewards
    • Fixed an issue where loot from the Bad Man in Bad Man’s Hallows would not correctly scale to your level.
    • Fixed an issue where Cadwell's Lost Robe, Er-Jaseen's Worn Jack, and the Unfinished Torment Cuirass were dropping from the Sealed Urn with enchantments inconsistent with their armor weight.
      • Cadwell's Lost Robe now has a default Magicka enchantment, Er-Jaseen's Worn Jack has a default enchantment of Stamina, and the Unfinished Torment Cuirass has a default Health enchantment now.
      • This will affect any of these items that have not been re-enchanted.
    • When you skip the Wailing Prison tutorial, you will now receive the Collar of Bones in addition to the other items you are guaranteed from running (or skipping) the tutorial.

    I really like the new layout with images for titles though, must have taken forever but thanks for helping break it up more for us.
