PTS Patch Notes v3.2.1

ZOS_GinaBruno
mr9g817b756y.jpg

The Elder Scrolls Online v3.2.1 is the first incremental patch on the PTS for Clockwork City, and fixes a number of issues with this new zone’s quests, audio, housing and furnishings, and the new Trial Asylum Sanctorium. We’ve also begun making adjustments to the sourcing of Transmute Crystals, and have made additional improvements to the supplied character template.

We fixed a handful of bugs involving player abilities and item sets; balance changes aren’t in this patch as we’re still in the process of collecting and considering feedback. Please make sure you log into the PTS and try any gameplay-related changes before submitting feedback! This is essential for proper testing so you can test the changes in the appropriate context amongst all other changes.

The size of this latest patch is 319MB. Thanks to everyone for all the feedback and bug reports so far. We sincerely appreciate you putting in the time and effort!

    Transmutation
    Developer Comments:
    The goal of Transmutation is to provide you with a way to acquire your ideal traits in a way which is less dependent on RNG, without trivializing changing equipment traits or making it incredibly time consuming. The primary sources of Transmute Crystals are guaranteed drops from content you're likely already doing to collect your gear, such as Pledges, the group finder daily random Dungeon, Trial weekly quests, Veteran arena completions, and end of campaign PvP rewards.

    We made a number of changes in this patch to make the sourcing more inclusive for a wider level range of players. First, we added Geode sourcing to the normal mode difficulty final Dungeon bosses, as well as Normal Trial weekly quest rewards. Further, the rate at which these will drop from Veteran bosses has been significantly increased. Dungeon and Trial final bosses will also now drop Unidentified Transmutation Geodes, which provides at least one Transmute Crystal with the possibility of multiples up to 10. Additionally, completing Veteran Dragonstar Arena now provides a Transmute Crystal. Due to all the Transmute Crystal sourcing improvements, we have increased the cost to Transmutate from 40 to 50 Crystals.

    We are still working on the sourcing and acquisition rates of Transmute Crystals; the changes in this patch are only a start. We will continue to tune things over the next few PTS patches, so please continue to test and provide constructive feedback.
    • Increased the drop rates of Unidentified Transmutation Geodes.
      • Unidentified Transmutation Geodes will now occasionally drop from the final bosses of all Normal and Veteran Dungeons, rather than the Transmute Crystals dropping directly.
      • Veteran mode bosses are significantly more likely to drop a Geode than in Normal mode dungeons.
    • You will now receive a Transmute Crystal for completing Dragonstar Arena on Veteran mode, just as you would for completing Maelstrom Arena.
    • Transmute Crystals will now also be granted from the weekly Trial quests, your first-in-a-day Random Dungeon, or subsequent random Dungeons, regardless of whether you do those activities on Veteran mode or Normal mode. Previously, they were available only from Veteran mode.
    • Increased the cost of Transmutation from 40 to 50 Crystals.
    • Fixed an issue where some AvA Leaderboard mails were granting multiple Transmutation Geodes.
    • Fixed an issue where Cyrodiil Leaderboards were not granting the proper amount of Transmute Crystals.
      • 30-Day campaign Leaderboards now grant 40 Transmute Crystals each, and 7-Day campaign Leaderboards now grant 4 Transmute Crystals each.
    • Transmutation Geodes will no longer stack, which was causing an issue where using multiple Transmutation Geodes in quick succession would cause you not to get any Transmute Crystals.
    • Fixed an issue where Transmute Crystals would not appear properly in the Loot window when added to your account.
      • Note: This was a display-only issue; the Crystals were still properly added to your account.
    • Added a tooltip to the Transmute Crystal currency icon shown on the Transmute Station.

    uk3rg6wk3s5f.png
    Greenshade
    • Marbruk: Eralgor no longer walks up onto walls in his sweeping fervor. Tone it down, man. You're at an 11. We need you at a 6.

    Reaper’s March
    • The Rawl'kha Outlaw's Refuge now has appropriately-placed map pins telling you where the services are.

    Rivenspire
    • Fell's Run: Beaunois Edette no longer steps over tables and chairs to get to where he's told. Sit down and sober up, buddy.

    wtowrgzt3tkn.png
    General
    • Added and adjusted a number of icons for achievements, housing, maps, help, furnishings and general itemization.
    • Fixed an issue where currencies were not properly capitalized in the loot window.
    • Fixed an issue where your game could crash when navigating various menus.
    • Updated the privacy policy to reflect the switch of our privacy compliance provider from TRUSTe to ESRB.
    • Fixed an issue where some Memento icons would appear distorted when dragging them to your quickslot wheel.

    Crafting
    • Fixed an issue where the improvement chance for an item would display with an extraneous .0 on the end, such as "60.0%".

    Crown Store
    • The ESO Plus Benefits page on the Crown Store now includes that the Transmute Crystal cap is doubled for ESO Plus members.
    • Fixed an issue where purchasing an item from the Crown Store would reset the list back to the top.

    Gamepad Mode
    • Fixed a UI error in the Transmutation UI when selecting to get help for an item.
    • A message will now appear when you go to the Attach Items screen in the Trade Window and you don’t have any items, rather than it being blank.

    Housing
    • When loading permissions from another house, the dropdown menu will now scroll instead of extending off the screen.

    Transmutation
    • Fixed an issue where improving a retraited item at a crafting station would show the old trait of the item instead of the retraited one.
    • When Transmutating a Bind on Equip item, the confirmation dialog will now inform you that performing the trait change will bind the item to your account.

    Tutorials & Help Menus
    • Added a Help menu for Transmutation.
    • Added details about the Crazy King Battleground and associated medals to the Help section.

    HAHAHA! OMG this is going to be the subject of the week for sure.

    But from what I understand the drop rate was improved. So it's actually possible that this is a buff :smiley:
    Let's see how many others work that one out. :smirk:

    Transmute Crystals will now also be granted from the weekly Trial quests, your first-in-a-day Random Dungeon, or subsequent random Dungeons, regardless of whether you do those activities on Veteran mode or Normal mode. Previously, they were available only from Veteran mode.

    Looking for some clarification please.. as of last patch, it was (supposed to at least - was bugged) guarantee a drop from a vet random dungeon via group finder. You mention first per day, plus subsequent. Is your first (normal or vet) random dungeon guaranteed to drop a crystal still? Are subsequent random dungeons via GF guaranteed, or just possible?

    It's a lot of work to see that silver lining. So this is the work that's been done, ZOS? You guys....you're really on top of stuff.

    In their defense, only the solar barrage was listed in the official bug thread for combat abilities and probably easy to code/fix compared to completely redoing total dark/unstable core.

    I just added unstable core not applying the aoe DMG on cc immunity enemies and a link to my video showing the mag drain on a Mammoth to that bug thread.

    @ZOS_GinaBruno can we please have more of a back and forth on class balance changes? Every single patch it feels like players work hard to test and leave valuable feedback, and every single patch it feels like the Developers are largely disinterested in the feedback. Maybe I'm completely wrong and they do value our feedback, but without communication (and, to be clear, there is none) our feedback feels wasted. You guys have weighed in on the Transmutation system, on the new trial, but there hasn't been a single Developer or CM response in a class feedback thread. Think about that for a moment, there hasn't been a single staff comment (other than a moderator comment removing posts from the Sorcerer thread) in ANY of the class feedback threads since Clockwork City hit the PTS. Not a single staff comment.

    Can we please open some lines of communication within each Class Feedback thread? For example, you guys could tell us (A) where you think the class is in terms of balance in both PvE and PvP as DD, Tanks, Healers; (B) where you think the class ought to be in terms of the above balance, and (C) what you're thinking about changing to achieve balance.

    Right now I think class balance is totally non-existent. Some classes cannot compete in end-game PvE damage roles (e.g., Magplar and Warden) and other classes are completely out of the meta in competitive PvP groups (e.g., mDK).

    After last week's fairly light balance changes, I was hoping that that was just phase 1 of several and that more balance changes (and not just tweaks on last's week changes) were coming. But that doesn't seem to be the case.

    At this point I am legitimately concerned about the state of class balance and the pigeonhole effect it's having on players. ESO players did not get into this game because they liked having defined roles based on class. Quite the opposite.

    Open up the lines of communication. Please.

    I had a post on that, smaller teams have constant updates, ZOS leaves us in the dark.
