    hhhdqg5a2uiw.png
    General
    • Fixed an issue where not all Crest of Cyrodiil set items and some sets from Orsinium were appropriately curated.

    Crafted
    • Mechanical Acuity: Fixed an issue where this set could last longer than intended in some cases.

    Dungeon & Arena
    • Para Bellum:
      • This set now grants you a damage shield for 6 seconds when you deal damage with a 6 second cooldown, rather than a damage shield passively every 15 seconds.
      • Increased the shield size to 8412, up from 7010, to fix numerous bugs and edge cases with the set.

    Mythics
    • Belzharza’s Band:
      • This set now automatically fires when you reach 5 stacks, rather than requiring you to do a Fully Charged Heavy Attack to trigger it after generating any stack.
      • Increased the damage by approximately 14% compared to the previous max stacks value.
      • This portion of the set now has a 10 second cooldown, up from 4 seconds.
      • Note: For additional context, we also plan on slightly reducing the Light Attack damage bonus to 900, down from 1185 in next week’s patch.
      Developer Comment:
      We’re seeing a lot of discussion that this set is only good as a Light Attack damage bonus which was only added to help players who were using the stack portion of the set. While we’re not opposed to it having a global application, we’d like the set to feel like more of its focus is on the proc, rather than the passive. Additionally, we’ve heard that it’s not intuitive that you build the stacks by rapidly Light Attacking, then spend them by Heavy Attacking. Originally, we wanted to give the caster the control of triggering the effect but since so much of the set is focused on using Light Attacks, we’ve instead opted to go with a rapid-fire function that immediately rewards you on impact. With this loss of control and added cooldown, we’ve also juiced up the damage reward to make its impact all the more satisfying.
    • Markyn Ring of Majesty: This set now has a Current Bonus listing to show its effect on your character.
    • Spaulder of Ruin:
      • This set now reduces your Health, Magicka, and Stamina Recovery by 70 for each ally in the area, rather than your Weapon and Spell Damage. \
      • Fixed an issue where this set could apply to pets and friendly NPCs.
      • Fixed an issue where the effect could linger on allies after you died.
      Developer Comment:
      The original idea for this set was for healers and supports to transfer power to their allies, taking a hit to important stats which would augment their builds and decisions. However, the original form of removing Weapon and Spell Damage was mainly only felt by healers, and tanks could easily run the set with little to no penalty. Adjusting it to instead affect Recovery hits all builds regardless of their type, helping it be more diverse in terms of where you want to use it.

    Overland
    • Hatchling’s Shell: This set now grants you a damage shield for 6 seconds when you take damage with a 6 second cooldown, rather than a damage shield passively every 15 seconds, to fix numerous bugs and edge cases with the set.
    • Hexos’ Ward:
      • Increased the shield size of this set to 12265, up from 8177.
      • Fixed an issue where this set did not scale based off item set level and quality.
    • Kynmarcher’s Cruelty: Fixed an issue where this set could hit targets outside of its listed radius.

    PvP Sourced
    • Dark Convergence: This set now has new visual effects to help better define its radius attack sources and timing of the detonation.
    • Hrothgar:
      • Fixed an issue where this set could proc off other sets that applied Stuns or Immobilizes.
      • Fixed an issue where this set was not following its listed proc requirements and applying in situations it should not have been.
    • Thews of the Harbinger: Fixed an issue where this set could proc off other procs.
