PTS Patch Notes v4.0.0

Community Manager
Welcome to The Elder Scrolls Online v4.0.0 and our next Chapter: Summerset! For the first time in history, the long-closed borders of Summerset are open to foreigners by decree of Queen Ayrenn. But darkness looms over the ancestral home of the High Elves, and whispers stir of Daedric followers organizing in the shadows.

For this week's first PTS testing cycle, we're focusing on the new player experience and would like you to create a new character to play through Summerset’s quests and content. But don’t worry, we have a high-level template available in case you’d like to expedite the testing of Jewelry Crafting or the new Trial. At this time, North American character copies from last month (March 15) are still accessible, but we plan to perform a fresh North American character copy next week.

In addition to an entirely new zone to explore, we’ve added the Psijic Order skill line. Should you join the order, you'll gain access to five Active Abilities, five Passive Abilities, and a powerful Ultimate. Also available is the highly anticipated Jewelry Crafting system that will now allow you to craft, upgrade, research, and transmute Rings and Necklaces. With the addition of Jewelry Crafting, there are 9 Traits that can be applied to jewelry – 6 of which are all new! These Traits can be discovered and researched by acquiring jewelry found in various activities throughout the game. We can’t wait for you to try it out!

For a challenging group experience, you can gather your strongest allies to take on our newest 12-player Trial, Cloudrest, to face the Welkynar and their powerful gryphon companions. Similar to previous Trials, Cloudrest includes a normal and Veteran version (the latter geared toward our more experienced players looking for a tougher challenge) for a chance to obtain unique item sets and rewards.

The base game brings a number of changes and improvements, too. First, you’ll find Battlegrounds are now available for all ESO players, and both Morrowind content and the Warden class can be purchased separately in the in-game Crown Store. We’ve also added a number of new Motifs, collectibles, and achievements, and have implemented a new Gifting system so you can send Crown Store items directly to your friends! And as always, you’ll find a number of bug fixes and improvements to existing systems and the game overall.

Please remember if you’re participating on the PTS and giving us feedback, Summerset’s story content is under a strict NDA beyond the first quest titled “The Queen’s Decree”. You’re free to discuss or stream anything else in Summerset including the Psijic Order skill line, other side quests, the new Trial, Jewelry Crafting, or anything in the base game.

We look forward to hearing what you think of our latest Chapter, which is approximately 9.3GB in size. Thank you, and enjoy your time in Summerset!
