PTS Patch Notes v5.0.4

Community Manager
The Elder Scrolls Online v5.0.4 is the final PTS patch before we launch Elsweyr and Update 22 on PC/Mac next week. We have continued to make adjustments to Dragons and Sunspire Trial, and have a few additional fixes for combat abilities. Note we’ve performed another character copy for this patch, this time for PC/Mac North American characters, to further test some fixes before we launch next week. This final patch is approximately 1.95GB in size. Thank you for all the testing and feedback; it’s been an invaluable resource!
