    Midyear Mayhem
    Midyear Mayhem returns for testing this week! Rally your troops for the war in Cyrodiil, the skirmishes in the Imperial City, or the raucous feuds of the Battlegrounds.
    • This season introduces the final fragment for the Deadlands Firewalker personality, as well as a new set of weapon styles for the Alliance Banner staves and Alliance Shields, so you can sport your alliance's colors during the fray.
      • The Alliance Banner Emblems that allow you to create these styles drop from Pelinal's Midyear Boon Boxes, and when combined with a license that you can purchase from Predicant Maera for 50,000 AP, create a tradeable style page. Bound versions of these pages are available from the Impresario for 5 Event Tickets each.
    • Speaking of tickets, you can earn up to three tickets per day by completing quests in Cyrodiil or the Battlegrounds (2 per day) and the Imperial City districts (1 additional ticket per day).
    • Second Legion outfit style pages have moved into the Midyear Grab Bag, while Ebonsteel Armor styles continue to drop from Imperial City bosses (as well as being available on the Impresario).

    h2bt4dn4rwtk.png
    General
    • Fixed an issue where synergies would sometimes fail to appear if granted from multiple sources of the same ability.
    • Fixed numerous issues where certain abilities were displaying improper durations with Ability Timers active.

    • Fixed an issue where some Area of Effect abilities that received recent adjustments were not respecting their target caps.

    Buffs and Debuffs
    • Major Gallop: Fixed an issue where this bonus was applying to toy mounts. Sorry about this one.

    Nightblade
    • Shadow
      • Summon Shade
        • Shadow Image (morph): The shade from this ability will now spawn directly at your location when activated, and teleporting to it will put you directly at its location as well. These changes should add more precision to utilizing this ability, while also fixing issues where it could occasionally get you in areas you did not belong. Your shadow seems to be a pretty complicated person, perhaps some reflection would do you well?

    Sorcerer
    • Dark Magic
      • Crystal Shard
        • Crystal Fragments (morph): Fixed an issue where the special activation of this ability could not be activated when it procced.

    Necromancer
    • Bone Tyrant
      • Bone Totem: Fixed an issue where this ability and its morphs would fear targets immediately, instead of after the 2 second delay. It was just really spooky before.

    q4j97ujs0jwn.png
    General
    • Fixed an issue that could cause your character sheet to appear to lose stats when equipping multiple pieces of non-perfected and perfected item sets together.

    5xz1er7gow9z.png
    General
    • Fixed an issue where you could not use or equip items while seated in chairs.

    Endeavors 
    • Fixed an issue where you would instantly complete Endeavors for collecting Survey Reports by collecting just one node in one survey. You'll now only get one tick of progress on that Endeavor when you loot the first node in the survey area. 
    • Added a new center screen announcement to indicate the completion of the maximum allowable number of Endeavors for the current period (day/week).
    • Completed Endeavors will now display a check mark on their progress bar.

    • Fixed an issue where crafting multiples of an item at once would not increment a “craft items” endeavor for each item crafted.
    • Fixed an issue where empty categories would appear in the Crown Store. These categories do not have any products in them on the PTS, so showing the category makes no sense (and to be clear, we are not retiring Crown Gems).

    0in9xrjqswrb.png
    Furnishings
    • Fixed an issue that caused certain houseguests to refuse to talk to you if you were a late-stage Vampire or transformed Werewolf. They’ve learned to look past your dark exterior and see the kindred soul within.

    Housing Editor
    • Fixed an issue that could prevent your permission list from correctly appearing under certain circumstances, resulting in incomplete or empty permission lists.

    o5aubiqcuefj.png
    General
    • The game now prevents memory-related crashing when attempting to load in a very large number of players, companions, and pets at the same time. There may still be undesired visual effects in these cases, which will be addressed in a later update.
    • Reduced loading times from login to character select.

    Activity Finder
    • Fixed an issue where disconnected players could block inviting replacements to a dungeon.
    • Disbanding a group while queued for an activity will no longer give an incorrect message.
    • Ensured the “Leave Now” option in instances only appears when it is actually possible to leave immediately.

    wbb3eb3w7w5i.png
    General
    • Updated some Collectibles' acquire hints to conform to capitalizations standards. 

    Ability Bar Timers
    • Adjusted the layout of Ability Bar Timers to increase the size of the back bar display and refined the timer on the front bar display.
    • Fixed an issue where ability timers would stop displaying when leaving combat.
    • Fixed an issue where ability timers wouldn't update when changing your ability bar.
    • Fixed an issue where ability bar icons would occasionally not properly display when they could be activated.
