The Elder Scrolls Online v3.1.3 incorporates some more balance changes to the game, in addition to a handful of bug fixes affecting dungeons, housing, quests, and UI. We’ve also fixed the issue where you weren’t able to preview and purchase homes, and therefore, have added three new homes to be tested. The size of this patch is approximately 240MB.

    New Homes
    New homes are now available to be previewed and purchased for testing!
    • Hakkvild's High Hall: Hakkvild, former Jarl of Falkreath who freed the hold from the hands of Yashnag's Orcs, built himself this spacious hall on the heights above town, with convenient access to the crypts of his ancestors. And now it can be yours!
      • This home neighboring the Falkreath Hold dungeon shares a similar style, and includes both subterranean and above ground furnishing areas.
      • This home will require you to complete achievements tied to Horns of the Reach in order to purchase it with gold, but is also available for crowns in furnished and unfurnished variants.
    • Cozy Fenside Cottage: This comfy little thatched hut on the edge of Hag Fen in Glenumbra has tumbledown walls to keep the crocodiles and witches out, with easy access to the Iliac Bay if you have friends in the smuggling trade. So misty!
      • This home will require you to complete the Witches Festival achievement “An Unsparing Harvest” in order to purchase it with gold, but is also available for crowns in furnished and unfurnished variants.
    • Linchal Grand Manor: This imposing estate in the Nibenese style was originally built as the summer manor of an Imperial City nobleman, now sadly deceased. Gardens with statues and a reflecting pool surround the stately walled mansion. Sumptuous!
      • This home will only be available for purchase with crowns once it goes live.

    • Bloodroot Forge

      • Added additional mechanics for the Earthgore Amalgam when Hard Mode is activated.
    • Falkreath Hold
      • Removed candles within the Jarl’s Hall; there’s enough fire present already.
      • Doorways that are blocked and unable to be entered throughout the dungeon will now appear as such.
      • Tuecille will no longer remain a pacifist on rare occasions and refuse to attack you. We mean it this time!

    General

    • Fixed an issue preventing some Ayleid furnishing plans from being created.
    • Fixed an issue where a small number of new furnishings shared their appearance with other furnishings.
    • The “Telvanni Candelabra, Masterwork” furnishing now has its more arcane and final appearance.
    • The furnishing item “Mammoth Cheese, Mastercrafted” no longer emits steam from strange places. Or any place.
    • Updated the name of the “Witches Totem, Gnarled Vines and Skull” furnishing to indicate its witchyness.
    • Added cooldowns to trigger the “Decoy Elder Scroll” (5 seconds) and the “Telvanni Rotating Device” (2 seconds) to prevent stuttering or odd behavior when triggering them repeatedly in a short amount of time.
    • Adjusted a number of furnishing item tooltips to more accurately reflect their size and behavior.
    • Updated a number of furnishings to have more consistent categorization in the housing editor and purchase tabs.
    • Improved the lighting for the furnishing “Soul Gem, Great” to be more clearly associated with the item.

    • Adjusted the lighting effects on a number of furnishings to illuminate more consistently with the day/night cycle.
    • Updated error messaging to more clearly state which furnishing cap was preventing further placement.

      • Traditional Furnishings (Most furnishing items)

      • Special Collectibles (Pets, Mounts, Assistants)

    Thank you for NOT nerfing Twin Fanged Snake. I literally just got it last week and thought for sure it would be on the chopping block. And before people complain about it being left out please keep in mind...it's trial gear...it is supposed to be better than something I can just go buy in a guild store.

    I pretty much agree with these changes...really looking forward to this patch at this point.

    I call weak defense, it was better and would be better even if nerfed. It actually got better without being buffed simply by nerfing everything else... and it was already best

    Amberplasm change keeps it in a good place. 258 (2 recovery buffs worth) would be ideal.

    That's a big hit to Green Pact and Plague Doctor. They are certainly still viable, but I'm curious where the nerf is coming from for those.
