PTS Patch Notes v3.2.0 (Clockwork City)

j6emz328j7sp.jpg

Welcome to The Elder Scrolls Online v3.2.0 and the Clockwork City where you can enter Sotha Sil's legendary creation and explore his mysterious mechanical world. In addition to new quests to enjoy, you’ll also come across two new world bosses and two delves, plus a new 12-player Trial: Asylum Sanctorium. We’ve also added 12 new item sets, two new Motifs, over 200 new furnishings, and a host of fun, new collectibles.

For players that own The Elder Scrolls Online: Morrowind, we’ve added a new Battleground game mode – Crazy King – where your team must seize a capture point location that jumps randomly around the map. It’s, well, crazy!

The base game update introduces the highly-anticipated Transmutation system which allows you to change the traits on your gear, including weapons and armors. We’ve also added a trait tracker that will allow you to see whether or not you've researched the unique trait on an item.

As always, we’ve supplied everyone with a character template that will let you access the Clockwork City immediately. We’ve also been working hard to improve our templates and what they offer, which is detailed below.

We can’t wait to hear what you think of this latest update, which is approximately 3.7GB in size. Please be sure to utilize the in-game /feedback or /bug features, or post in the official discussion threads on the forums. Thanks, and have fun!

    HORNS OF THE REACH

    New Motifs
    Two motifs have been added to the Horns of the Reach DLC game pack, in conjunction with two new motif achievements.
    • The Dreadhorn style is now available for crafters! The signature style of the invaders of Falkreath Hold can be learned from Chapters obtained by defeating Domihaus, the final boss of the Falkreath Hold dungeon. The Style Item, Minotaur Bezoar, can be obtained by defeating bosses in Falkreath Hold. The chance of obtaining Chapters and Style Items increases with the difficulty of the dungeon.
    • The Bloodforge style is now available for crafters! Used by the denizens of Bloodroot Forge, the Chapters for this Motif can be obtained by defeating the Earthgore Amalgam. The Style Item, Bloodroot Flux, can be obtained by defeating bosses in Bloodroot Forge. The chance of obtaining Chapters and Style Items increases with the difficulty of the dungeon.

    Transmutation
    • After running a dungeon or Trial with a group then attempting to change the trait on any item that is Bind on Pickup, but still has time remaining on the 2-hour trade timer, will cause your game to crash. For this PTS patch, please avoid attempting to change the traits of any item that is tradable until we have a fix in place.
    • System Mails that should contain Retrait Crystals, such as mails congratulating you for placing on the Leaderboard, currently do not contain Retrait Crystals.
    • Currently, only the first Geode in a stack of Geodes will award Crystals; subsequent ones will not award a Crystal. As a temporary work around, you can split your stacks into singles and then open them.
    • Currently, doing a Veteran Random Dungeon will only rarely award you a Transmutation Geode.
      • We'll be increasing this to always award a Transmutation Geode from a Veteran Random Dungeon in a future PTS patch.

    Asylum Sanctorium Trial
    • You may notice a significant client performance drop the first time St. Olms uses the Gust of Steam ability. This will be fixed in a future PTS patch.

    1dsoypgtoa6i.png
    Furnishings
    • If you put an item with looping audio in your house and then put it away, the audio will remain audible until you leave.
    • You may discover that some new furnishings don’t quite work as expected or have missing icons. These issues will be resolved in a future PTS patch.

    Battlegrounds
    • Battleground queues are now divided into 10-49 and 50. This means you will only have level 50 players playing against other level 50 players.
    • The level 50 Battleground queue is now CP-enabled.
    • Capture the Relic interactions have changed! There is now a brief animation and interaction time in picking up Relics in the wild, or at home locations.
      • Relics are still captured by moving near your home Relic with an enemy Relic.
    • Added five new achievements relating to Battlegrounds.

    General
    • Boss music in Morrowind now plays more reliably.

    Warden, Balance
    • Animal Companions
      • Deceptive Predator (Falcon’s Swiftness morph): This morph now increases the duration to 14 seconds, in addition to granting Minor Evasion.
        Developer Comments:
        This change helps compensate this morph with additional efficiency. Deceptive Predator’s Minor Evasion only gives 5% dodge chance, while Bird of Prey’s Minor Berserk gives 8% damage.
    • Green Balance
      • Nature’s Grasp: Increased the range of this ability and its morphs to 28 meters from 22 meters.
        Developer Comments:
        Increasing this to match the range of other heal abilities in the game makes it easier to use and target allies who are spread out.
      • Bursting Vines (Nature’s Grasp morph): Increased the projectile speed for this morph by 100%, and increased the heal from this morph by 10%.
        Developer Comments:
        As this is a burst heal, we’ve significantly increased the travel speed to help it fulfill the role of saving a low-health ally. It heals for less than Rushed Ceremony, but has a cheaper cost.
    • Winter’s Embrace
      • Frozen Gate: This ability and its morphs now allow you to have up to 3 gates active at a time, up from 1. Its initial spawning visual effects are now visible to enemies.
        Developer Comments:
        Frozen Gate is meant as a flavorful analogue to Fiery Grip. Allowing multiple traps at a time lets you throw it down on several enemies at the same time, then have them all get pulled to you. Clever players can anticipate where enemies will be and put traps down even before they get there.

    Warden, Fixes & Improvements
    • Animal Companions
      • Betty Netch: Reduced the intensity of the visual effects from this ability and its morphs.
      • Blue Betty (Betty Netch morph): Fixed an issue where this morph was not removing a negative effect from you if you had more than one negative effect on you.
    • Green Balance
      • Fungal Growth: Fixed an issue where some of the visual effects of this ability and its morphs were not aligned with the actual location of the healing cone.
    • Winter’s Embrace
      • Frozen Gate: Fixed an issue where the visual effects of the Frozen Retreat synergy from this ability and its morphs would linger on your character for an extended period of time.

    Delves
    • The bosses of Pulk and Nchuleft now summon immediately for players who have not completed the relevant delve achievements.

    Monsters
    • After months of anticipation, Factotums in the maintenance junction have finally received the latest in chassis chic.

    aer8zjogphep.png
    General
    • Fixed an issue where dragging the item “Veya’s Axe of the Defiler” between storage locations could cause the icon to display incorrectly.

    p9g3esalq1xc.png
    Furnishings
    • Changed the name of the achievement furnishing "Telvanni Device, Static" to “Telvanni Device, Rotating”, and updated its corresponding furnishing tags to be more accurate.
    • The achievement furnishing item "Tapestry, Morag Tong" now has an accurate icon.

    Homes
    • If you owned the Amaya Lake Lodge prior to the release of Update 15, the planter between your front steps is now a furnishing and can be moved.

    3rbc43eencjx.png
    Quests
    • Echoes of a Fallen House: Fixed an issue where the final fight during this quest could break.

    Thank you so much. I haven't even read the full notes but I searched for this just in case. I think I might cry. No really, I'm fine.

    *crosses fingers that this item will become even more relevant sometime soon*

    I thought the Maelstrom / Master change to a set bonus was cool but losing the passive stat is going to be a huge pain. What is that, 189 spell damage I'll lose out on? Being able to add an enchant sounds nice but I already use poisons while retaining the passive damage boost.

    That said, not much to complain about here, other than being lite on balance changes. Mag sorcs, stam wardens, and stam DKs are still going to clean house in PvP. Nothing else really stands out as annoying to me. Good work!

    To me, the measure of a man is whether or not he fights for his principles. It does not matter if you never had a chance to begin with. The deck could be stacked, the game rigged against you. You fight to the bitter end, because it is worth fighting for.
