The Elder Scrolls Online v4.0.1 is the first incremental patch on the PTS and contains a good amount of bug fixes, including a fix for the issue where items in your storage containers would appear to be missing, several bug fixes for Jewelry Crafting and the Psijic Order skill line, Summerset quests (we did our best to stay vague so as not to spoil anything!) and more. We also enabled the new Daily Login Reward system, which you can try out now! You can expect to see the start of some balance changes for combat abilities and item sets in the next PTS patch.

While we’ve updated the supplied character templates with the Psijic Order skill line and other goodies, we’ve also done a fresh character copy of all PC/Mac North American characters. The size of this patch is approximately 281MB. Thanks to everyone for your feedback and bug reports thus far – we greatly appreciate your time and effort!

    Thanks for the update

    Magicka Wardens remain the same below par level for now. Hopefully something next week...

    Can't say I'm surprised. What a joke. Thanks for nothing ZOS. Guess I'll level a nightblade to gank people now.

    The same for me. Rollerblade or StreakSorc to win.

    My optimism for this is just hoping they are taking longer to perfect the changes and that they aren't just ignored

    Nightblade
    • Siphoning
      • Strife: The animation from this ability and its morphs now plays faster, which should make it easier to weave with Light Attacks.

    Not at all what we wanted. I'd rather have the lower cost than a BUG FIX. You need to revert Siphoning Attacks (with different return values) if you truly wish to go through with the change. Rather than increase the damage of the skill for the love of the eight just keep the skill as is or increase the cost by 200-300

    Due to this + no more housing slots I'll be waiting until I re-sub for awhile.
