    Undaunted Celebration
    Are you Undaunted? Help test the Undaunted Celebration and defeat challenging dungeons for bonus rewards! The first final dungeon boss you defeat in a day will drop 3 Event Tickets and a special Glorious Undaunted Reward Box.
    • This box contains an assortment of valuable goods, motif pages, and a guaranteed chance for one of the new style pages for this event’s Opal weapons, themed for specific bosses in Direfrost Keep, the Imperial City Prison, Elden Hollow II, or Spindleclutch.
    • Defeating those bosses on Veteran Hard Mode has a chance to drop the Opal shoulder style page for those bosses as well!
    • Subsequent dungeons you complete will continue to award slightly-less-valuable Undaunted Reward Boxes, which still have a chance to drop those weapon style pages.
    • The Impresario offers the style pages for the Opal equipment for 5 tickets each, as well as the first three berries from the Crimson Indrik.

    • The Iron Atronach target dummy is currently missing Minor Brittle and Major Vulnerability, as well as displaying old tooltips for Hircine’s Veneer and Worm’s Ramients. These will be fixed in an upcoming PTS patch.

    General
    • Fixed an issue were some Area of Effect abilities failed to fire, such as Summon Storm Atronach and Caltrops.
    • Fixed an issue where some effects could remain stuck on you through unintended means.
    • Fixed an issue where the following Light or Heavy Attacks were not scaling dynamically with your offensive stats:
      • Werewolf Berserker’s conal attack
      • Unarmed fully-charged Heavy Attack
      • Mend Wounds and its morphs
    • Fixed an instance where using movement abilities could cause you to snap back to your original point.
    • Battle Spirit: Reduced the healing penalty to 55%, down from 60%, to make up for some reductions of Healing Done and Taken we’ve taken out of the game.

    Buffs and Debuffs
    • Fixed an issue where some Major and Minor Buffs, such as Evasion or Magickasteal, would fail to properly work when refreshing.
    • Minor Toughness: Fixed an issue where being affected by a duration based source of this buff, such as Maturation, it would completely replace itself rather than refresh, causing you to continuously lose the 10% portion of the Max Health you gained.

    World
    • Fixed an issue that could cause the experience bar for the Soul Magic skill line to display the incorrect amount of current experience for some characters.

    sq39edqc3zl2.png
    General
    • You can now obtain Staves in the Kyne’s Kiss set.
    • Fixed an issue which prevented Restoration Staves from dropping in the Shadow of the Red Mountain set.

    Crafted Sets
    • Oblivion’s Foe: Oblivion’s realms have been full as of late with the poor souls affected by this set, so it is being reworked again. Whenever you deal damage with Soul Magic using the 5-piece bonus, you mark the target’s soul, dealing 12820 Magic Damage over 10 seconds.
      • This set will not refresh itself on targets it is already active on and will wait for the duration to end before reapplying.
      • Additional changes to the 2-4 piece bonus will be coming in the next PTS patch.

    Dungeon & Arena Sets
    • Pestilent Host: Fixed an issue where this item set could stack multiple times on a target from the same wearer, rather than simply refreshing itself.

    Trial Sets
    • Aegis of Galenwae: Fixed an issue where this set and its perfected version’s Empower granted were not the correct duration. Empower from this set will now last 3 seconds, rather than 2.

    Monster Masks
    • Valkyn Skoria: Fixed an issue where the cooldown on this item set’s tooltip was incorrect.

    Ability Altering Weapons
    • Frenzied Momentum: Increased the damage proc from this set to 10834, up from 9028, to better account for the wind-up period of your Heavy Attacks; its total DPS was lower than other sets when getting multiple procs off cooldown.
    • Void Bash: Fixed an issue where the Major Maim applied from this set was fired in a smaller radius than intended. It is now 12 meters as the tooltip states, rather than 8 meters.
    • Wrath of Elements: Fixed an issue where the damage done from this set was not affecting each target you hit, and would instead cause the tethered target to take damage from each of the enemies you were hitting.

    • Clarified on the item tooltips for the new War Torte items that they are compatible with other foods' and drinks' effects, and specifically called out that they cannot be used by characters under Level 10.
      • As part of this, we've hidden their Required Level (since there are no other versions of these items at other levels).
    • The Rubyblossom Extract and Cyrodiil Citrus ingredients now require you to type "DELETE" to confirm their deletion.
    • Mythic items will now always be reconstructed at level 50 CP 160

    Item Set Collection

    • Fixed an issue where many Item Sets had an incorrect default enchantment instead of the enchantment they normally drop with.
    • Fixed an issue where some Item Sets displayed weapon types that were no longer obtainable. If a weapon type is excluded from dropping for a particular Item Set, that weapon type will not show up in the collection.
    • A center screen message will now properly display informing you that you've collected an item set piece when deconstructing an uncollected piece.
    • Fixed an issue where the Help entry for the new Item Set Collection system incorrectly used the Champion icon instead of the Item Set Collection icon.

    1ca2s6tkncni.png
    General
    • Fixed an issue that caused some quests to remain visible in the map’s quest panel when subsequently changing the view to another map.
    • Updated the behavior of the brief animation for a new inventory category to trigger when you open your inventory rather than immediately after getting an item (so it's actually, you know... seen)
    • Added text search to the Quickslot tab of the inventory.
    • The icon for the Hungering Void Shield now matches the rest of the weapon set.

    Alliance War
    • Fixed an issue where Cyrodiil Leaderboards would not properly display the home campaign name in the header.

    Gamepad Mode
    • Fixed an issue where hovered pins would sometimes not reset their size after closing the map.

    • Fixed a UI error that could occur when viewing Guild Banks.
