PC/Mac Patch Notes v7.2.5 (Deadlands & Update 32)

Community Manager
The Gates of Oblivion story reaches its climactic finale in The Deadlands DLC. The way to Mehrunes Dagon’s realm has been opened and his legions of Daedra and cultists prepare to unleash a series of new and terrifying Daedric inventions on the lands of Tamriel. The call now sounds for heroes to thwart these schemes.

In addition to the burning and scoured fields of Mehrunes Dagon’s domain, The Deadlands DLC also invites you to visit Fargrave, a mysterious city shrouded in the corners of Oblivion. Here, “friendly” Daedra and mortals inhabit a metropolis unlike any other. But despite the tentative peace, tensions lurk beneath the city … tensions that Mehrunes Dagon is eager to exploit for his own gain.

The Deadlands DLC introduces several new item sets, collectibles, outfit styles, achievements, titles and more!

The base game introduces some exciting new features including the new Armory system – which allows you to save out character builds – curated item set drops to help you complete your item set collections, new Mythic items, NVIDIA DLSS & DLAA Support, and more! Be sure to check out all the details below. There are also a number of changes affecting combat and itemization including some adjustments to proc sets and critical hit damage, plus allowing sets to now grant hybrid stats. For a full summary of the changes affecting combat, please see this forum post.

We hope you enjoy our latest DLC, which is approximately 3.53GB in size.

    • Critical Damage and Healing now has a hard cap of 125%. Note that this value can go beyond 125% but your Critical Strikes will not deal more than 125% damage or healing in total.
      Developer Comment:
      Currently, Critical Chance continues to remain the best stat in the game by a large margin in PvE due to no effective cap on the bonus, and a large array of sourcing of Critical Damage and Healing amplifications. Rather than nerfing the values of these sources across the board and hurting build choices that aren't over performing, we've decided to add a ceiling to the effectiveness of Critical potency to ensure the stat remains powerful, but doesn't continue experiencing power creep as we add more options to build for it in the future. This should have very low impact on unoptimized builds while also reigning in groups who are coordinating many sources of these bonuses and producing extraordinary results of damage or healing.
    • Made the following adjustments to Bash:
      • This core combat skill now has a cooldown of 333ms, down from 350ms, to ensure it can be cast up to 3 times per second at most.
      • Reduced the cost to 765, down from 1889, to ensure it is 1/3rd of a melee spammable.
      • The damage now scales with a mixture of your Physical and Spell Resistance + 1 extra damage (to ensure if you’re at 0 for these stats, it still hits the target!)
      • Reduced the cooldown phase after activating Bash that prevented you from casting other active abilities to 333ms, down from 700ms, for smoother gameplay when utilizing.
      • Fixed an issue where some proc based conditions could unintentionally succeed when removing negative ground effects.
      • The damage from this can now trigger enchantments and poisons.
    • Fixed an issue where the caster of an ability using the new Area of Effect technology would be dismounted upon entering the area of their ability. Let this be a reminder that technology often affects us in ways we can never expect.
    • Adjusted the following abilities to use the new Area of Effect system introduced in Update 30.
      • Ash Cloud and its morphs
      • Meteor and its morphs
        • Note: this change also fixes numerous issues with the Ultimate failing against dead targets.
      • Stampede
      • Volley and its morphs
    • Abilities and item sets that heal, deal damage, or restore resources on a set frequency while in an Area of Effect will no longer display visual effects on each impact for targets in their areas. Below is a list of the affected sources:
      • Aegis Caller
      • Auroran's Thunder
      • Bahraha's Curse
      • Blood Mist
      • Budding Seeds
      • Dragonknight Standard and morphs
      • Draugr's Rest
      • Grand Healing and morphs
      • Hurricane
      • Elemental Storm and morphs
      • Embershield
      • Frozen Watcher
      • Grothdarr
      • Hiti's Hearth
      • Impaling Shards and morphs
      • Leeching plate
      • Life Amid Death and morphs
      • Nightflame
      • Overwhelming Surge
      • Restoring Tether and morphs
      • Secluded Grove and Enchanted Forest
      • Sentinal of Rkugamz
      • Sleet Storm and morphs
      • Solar Barrage
      • Stone Husk
      • Stormfist
      • Unstable Familiar and morphs
      • Wrath of Elements
      Developer Comment:
      These changes were done to help reduce combat clutter while utilizing these effects, as they became impossible to see with numerous active anyway.
    • Fixed an issue where many enchantments, poisons, and item sets were not properly labeled as procs.
    • Fixed an issue where some abilities experienced erratic visual behavior when cast by female characters with a bow equipped.
    • Fixed an issue where abilities that bounced between targets would fail to generate visual effects when reflected.
    • Trying to mount up while teleporting to a Wayshrine will no longer prevent you from mounting up after the teleport finishes.
    • Fixed an issue where sources of Crowd Control Immunity could remove one another in some cases, mainly seen with Mist Form and its morphs.

    • Ardent Flame
      • Combustion:
        • Increased the resources granted from this passive to 500/1000 Stamina or Magicka, up from 250/500.
        • Added a cooldown of 500ms to each effect (which are separately tracked from one another) to make up for the above increase and the massive buff the Charged trait is getting.
      • Inferno: This ability and the Cauterize morph now grant both Major Prophecy and Savagery, rather than only Prophecy.
        • Flames of Oblivion (morph): This morph now launces 3 fire balls, up from 2, since it “lost” part of its unique morph function.
      • Lava Whip: This ability and its morphs now scale off your highest offensive stats, rather than exclusively Magicka based stats. May this finally end the fiery and age-old debate over getting a Stamina Whip, as this is our version of it.
        • Flame Lash (morph):
          • Fixed an issue where this morph did not apply Off Balance to targets who were Immobilized but not already Off Balance.
          • The override ability, Power Lash, now heals immediately rather than over 2 seconds, but its total healing per cast has been reduced by approximately 43%. However, Power Lash no longer has a 3 second cooldown. Ballerinas are back.
        • Molten Whip (morph): Seething Fury now lasts 10 seconds per stack, up from 5 seconds, to help it feel way less stressful to use in a rotation and allow for activation of burst at the perfect moment.
        Developer Comment:
        Magicka Dragonknight's morph options for Lava Whip currently feel too similar as they both increase the damage of the spammable and deal with 3 second cadences. Molten Whip now stands out more as a build-up to a deadly burst attack with its more gracious time period to activate for the perfect opportunity, while Flame Lash doubles down in the sustained pressure path, giving the Dragonknight moments to relentlessly batter their opponent down with reckless abandon.
      • World in Ruin: This passive now increases your damage done with Flame and Poison attacks by 2/5%, rather than increasing your damage done with Area of Effect Flame attacks by 3/6% and reducing the cost of your Poison abilities by 12/25%.
        Developer Comment:
        This passive has been holding back the class in terms of PvE damage output for quite some time, pigeonholing the class into unsynergetic and often redundant combinations. While the sustain portion of the effect for Stamina-based Dragonknights had some cool niche gameplay, we feel like it missed the mark as a general passive for the class.
    • Earthen Heart
      • Ash Cloud:
        • This ability and its morphs now cost 378 Magicka every second while active, rather than having a MASSIVE upfront cost of 5670 – keeping their cost per second relatively the same, while removing the penalty of having to recast the ability aside from losing a global cooldown.
        • These abilities now tick 15 times over their duration, down from 16, while their total damage or healing per cast remains relatively the same.
        • These abilities now last 15 seconds at base, rather than 12.
        • These abilities now rank up in 1.1% healing or damage done per rank, rather than 1 second.
          • Eruption (morph): This morph’s initial hit damage now has a 10 second cooldown to prevent it from turning into an incredibly low costing AoE spammable.
      • Battle Roar: This passive now restores 25/50 Health, Magicka, and Stamina per Ultimate consumed, rather than 23/46 Health, Magicka, and Stamina per the Ultimate’s cost.
        Developer Comment:
        This change should help even out your sustain when sitting on an Ultimate cast, and be less punishing when doing such.

    • Grave Lord
      • Boneyard: Increased the damage of this ability and its morphs by approximately 10% per tick since they tick 10 times instead of 11 after the change in Update 30.
      • Frozen Colossus: Fixed an issue where this ability and its morphs could hit targets outside of its line of sight.

    • Assassination
      • Grim Focus: This ability and its morphs now grant 60 Weapon and Spell Damage per stack , rather than 2% Critical Damage and Healing per stack.
        Developer Comment:
        This change was done to ensure the class does not lose too much of its healing potency and self-sufficiency from the original conversion where it granted Critical Damage and Healing since Critical Potency has a cap as well, and having this bonus often felt like a loss in group content.
    • Shadow
      • Path of Darkness
        • Twisting Path (morph): This ability’s damage now scales dynamically with the highest of your offensive stats.
      • Shadow Cloak
        • Dark Cloak (morph):
          • Increased the healing from this ability by approximately 61% per tick, but reduced the base duration to 3 seconds down from 6.
          • Increased the duration of the Minor Protection to 10 seconds, up from 6 and fixed an issue where it was not being affected by the Dark Veil passive.
          Developer Comment:
          These changes should improve the skill for tank Nightblades by improving the Healing per Second and overall healing without having to wait as long for it to come in, while reducing its impact to offset long term damage as a Heal over Time.
      • Summon Shade
        • Shadow Image (morph): This ability’s initial cast that summons the Shade can no longer be cast while in the air. The special activate to teleport to your Shade can still be cast while in the air and can now be cast while falling from a great height.
          Developer Comment:
          Overall, this will fix situations where your Shade could get spawned midair or cause you to teleport to areas you do not belong, while also allowing for more hardcore parkour and sick nasty plays when using the teleport function.
    • Siphoning
      • Malevolent Offering:
        • This ability and its morphs now have an upfront Magicka cost of 3510 and a residual Health cost of 1080 over 3 seconds, rather than a Health cost based on a mixture of your Spell Damage and Max Magicka over 8 seconds.
        • These abilities can now target yourself and allies, rather than only allies.
        • Reworded the tooltip for these skills, now with 100% more edge factor, to help you get the blood dripping when using the skill.
          • Shrewd Offering (morph): This ability now ranks up in cost reduction rather than 1.1% healing done, and its base cost has been reduced to 3240. The residual Health cost also lasts 1 second less causing it to drain less Health, to ensure its total cost is reduced to the expected level.
        Developer Comment:
        For a long time, these abilities have had relatively low engagement due to the fact that they costed purely Health and hurt the user more the higher their stats were, making it both deadly and un-advantageous to run in situations where you needed to stay alive. In addition, the health cost had low interplay with mechanics - such as cost reduction - and made it difficult to play around, leaving its core concept unsatisfying and untapped.

        We've decided to switch this ability over to a Dual Cost skill with the brunt of its cost being on the Magicka side of things, and the rest of it filled in with Health (it equals the base 4590 burst heal cost that skills such as Rushed Ceremony have when you add them up!). In addition, we've allowed the heal to be self-targetable so the healer can keep themselves up in a situation of need and giving the class a much-needed reactive self-heal. Overall, we hope this helps the skill stand out as something unique and thematic to the class, with less overall restrictions and punishment on the caster.

    • Storm Calling
      • Lightning Splash: Fixed an issue where the base ability was ending too soon and missing an extra tick of damage.

    • Aedric Spear
      • Spear Shards: Fixed an issue where this ability and its morphs were ending slightly too soon, causing them to miss an extra tick of damage.
    • Dawn’s Wrath
      • Backlash: This ability and its morphs’ visual effects are now visible to the caster and enemies, rather than anyone.
      • Solar Barrage: Fixed an issue where this ability could not Critically Strike.
    • Restoring Light
      • Cleansing Ritual: Increased the scaling coefficients on this ability and its morphs by approximately 17% since they tick 6 times instead of 7 after the change from Update 30.

    • Green Balance
      • Emerald Moss: Fixed an issue where the morphs of Healing Seeds were not properly contributing to this passive

    • Two Handed
      • Cleave
        • Carve (morph): Increased the duration of the damage over time effect to 12 seconds, up from 10, to help ease the difficulty of keeping the stacks up in a rotation.

    • Medium Armor
      • Evasion: Fixed an issue where casting this ability or its morphs could sometimes make your character appear invisible under very specific circumstances.

    • Vampire
      • Mistform: This ability and morphs' damage reduction now only works against player attacks, rather than any attack, to prevent it from invalidating many threats in PvE encounters.
        Developer Comment:
        This ability has been growing in popularity as a one-size-fits-all problem solver to many challenges in PvE areas that attempt to push the player to adjust their strategies, leading to many situations that trivialize difficulty or enforce the idea that players must be a vampire to do content. Mist Form is meant to be used as a disengagement tool, and the current iteration is currently enabling it to be used as a stand-your-ground ability in PvE. Moving forward, we are restricting the damage reduction to PvP to help stave off damage as you retreat, while removing it as an outright defensive tool in PvE.

    • Pain’s Refuge: This star now reduces your damage taken by 2% for every 2 negative effects on you, rather than 1% per negative effect, while the cap remains at 20%.
      Developer Comment:
      This change was done to reduce the power of this node in encounters against singular targets, as it is meant to shine in outnumbered situations.
    • Shield Master: Fixed an issue where this node did not apply to Sun Shield and its morphs, or Crystallized Shield and its morphs.

    • Cutting Defense:
      • The damage from this node can now proc weapon enchantments or poisons in efforts to help make it more enticing for tanks who want to trigger these effects more reliably without dropping block.
      • Fixed an issue where the damage from this proc had a higher chance to proc status effects.

    • Fixed an issue where some tooltips would display improper values when wearing a combination of Perfected and non-Perfected versions of a set.
    • Item sets that proc off Damage Shields will now work with Hardening enchantments for consistency, as many of these sets were inconsistent with this behavior.
    • Fixed an issue where many sets that required you to drink a potion only worked when you were actively looking at another target. Your enemies will no longer be the judge of you being in combat.
    • Fixed an issue where many sets that required Critical Strikes could proc off other procs.
    • The Eagle Eye and Wrath of the Imperium sets now drop in all ranged weapons to match their hybrid adjustments.
    • The following rules will now be followed with item sets when applicable, and has been applied to all existing sets:
      • Sets that grant Weapon or Spell Damage now grant both.
      • Sets that grant Physical or Spell Penetration now grant both.
      • Sets that grant Weapon or Spell Critical rating now grant both.
      Developer Comment:
      As seen in recent updates, improving character hybridization has been a focus by the team in efforts to better bring to life the mantra of “play the way you want”. This is another large-scale effort done to help better realize that statement. Item sets should empower you to get excited to build and experiment different things and fit into your character in a myriad of ways – and we hope this helps better do that.
    • Item sets that scale off Weapon Damage, Spell Damage, Max Magicka, and Max Stamina can now again Critically Strike. Item sets that scale in order of magnitude, or based on additional modifiers such as Relequen or Zaan, will not critically strike. Many of these sets have received adjustments to their power as well. Below are the sets that can Critically Strike and have had their scaling values reduced by approximately 5%. If another number is listed next to a set name, that is the true value change:
      • Arena Weapon
        • Frenzied Momentum
          • Reduced the damage by approximately 28%.
          • Stacks now grant 30 Weapon and Spell Damage up to 10 times, rather than 38 Weapon Damage up to 5 times.

      Developer Comment:
      Now with the hard cap to Critical Damage and Healing, as well as a new rule set that aims to diminish stacked item set burst potential, we’re moving forward with re-enabling item sets to Critically Strike when applicable. We decided to only target sets that are made for builds that are already building higher than base Critical chance, and have made additional changes to ensure they don’t become outright better than flat stat sets. This should significantly help viability of these sets in PvE, while many of the other targeted adjustments made should keep them reigned in for PvP environments. We expect these values or rules may change over time and we will be keeping a close eye on it.
    • Item sets that deal a "burst" of damage in 4 seconds or less now have a 1 second window after proccing that prevent similar item sets from activating.
      • Item sets that have innate counterplay such as delays, minimum travel times, warning telegraphs, have 1 second or no cooldowns are exempt from this adjustment.
      • If wearing multiples of these sets at once, any action that would activate multiple sets will instead trigger the first set you equipped and suppress others for 1 second. After that second passes you will be able to attempt to trigger them again.
      • The sets affected by this change are listed below:
        • Affliction
        • Ashen Grip
        • Curse of Doylemish
        • Deadlands Assassin
          • The Damage over Time now has a 2 second delay, up from 1 second.
        • Defending Warrior
        • Frenzied Momentum
        • Hrothgar’s Chill
        • Kra’gh
        • Poisonous Serpent
        • Song of Lamae
        • Stormfist
        • Syvarra’s Scales
          • Fixed an issue where this set's damage tooltip was displayed as a name different than the set.
        • Thunderbug’s Carapace
        • Thunder Caller
        • Viper’s Sting
        • Way of Fire
        • Winterborn
    Developer Comment:
    In efforts to help reduce the viability of stacking multiple proc sets at once and triggering them at high moments of burst, we've adopted a new standard for sets that lack ingrained counter play. These sets will now always prevent other sets on the list from activating at a singular moment, reducing the ability to front load damage into things such as Heavy Attacks or Ultimates and instantly killing targets. This list can be expanded and adjusted upon in the future, and moving forward, item sets will be held under greater scrutiny in terms of ensuring there are either moments of opportunity to avoid or outright prevention in terms of stacking.

    • Fixed an issue where some poisons would not be consumed or respect their cooldown on use in some cases.

    Item Traits
    • Charged: Increased the potency of this trait to 480%, up from 220%, to ensure it is more competitive with other traits in terms of effectiveness.
      Developer Comment:
      Currently, this trait is being engaged with mainly by Dragonknights trying to get as much sustain as they can, and we’d like the trait to be a bit more than a one note wonder. Now, it should help empower those crafty status effect builds out there and have some better synergy with effects that activate off of them.

    Ability Altering Weapons
    • Chaotic Whirlwind: Reworked this set's special activate:
      • It now grants a stack of Chaotic Whirlwind for 5 seconds after casting Whirlwind while in combat, granting 5% movement speed per stack and increases your Weapon and Spell Damage by 6 for every 1% bonus movement speed you have, up to a cap of 450.
      • This effect stacks up to 5 times, and upon reaching 5 stacks the duration doubles but cannot be refreshed.
      Developer Comment:
      The current iteration of Chaotic Whirlwind was a rework back in 2019 to serve as a stopgap to give the set some love, but ultimately didn't hit the marks we were going for. We wanted a set that enabled you to feel like the name implied - a tempest of chaos wreaking havoc on the battlefield as you spun and won. The new iteration gives a chaotic feel as your movement speed goes up and down in the heat of combat with its offensive bonus, with some natural synergy built in to ensure you always are getting something.
    • Concentrated Force: This set now requires successive casting of Force Shock within 5 seconds of each other, up from 2, to allow for more breathing room in a real combat rotation.

    • Assassin's Guile: Fixed an issue where Minor Heroism granted by poisons was not properly buffed by this set.
    • Mechanical Acuity: This item now grants a stack of Mechanical Acuity for 4 seconds whenever you deal non-Critical Damage, granting you 20% Critical Chance per stack, up to once every half second. After this effect ends or reaches 5 stacks, it cannot occur again for 25 seconds.
      Developer Comment:
      This change was done to help tone down the burst enabling nature of this set, where it significantly increased your kill potential with no real draw back. Now the set has a natural build up phase and properly gets weaker the more Critical Chance you already have, as it makes it harder to generate stacks as you build them.
    • Way of the Arena: The 5 piece bonus from this set now also grants up to 165 Weapon and Spell Damage.

    Dungeon & Arena
    • Elemental Succession: This set now grants its bonuses randomly per element when you deal any source of Flame, Frost, or Shock Damage, rather than firing each bonus independently per element.
      Developer Comment:
      This change was done to ensure its power is not outright better than the flat bonus versions of these sets, such as Silks of the Sun, as well as to significantly reduce the amount of logic checks being done per second on the backend.
    • Mighty Glacier: Fixed an issue where this set was not proccing from Potions or Poisons.
    • Moon Hunter: Fixed an issue where this set could stack itself in some situations.
    • 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.
    • The Worm’s Raiment: This set’s 2-piece bonus is now Magicka Recovery rather than Spell Damage to match Hircine’s Vineer.
    • Thunder Caller: Fixed an issue where this set’s damage was considered melee rather than ranged.

    Monster Masks
    • Updated some Monster Mask set masks to use the correct terminology for their weights. They now use "Guise" for light, "Mask" for medium, and "Visage" for heavy. This change affects:
      • Domihaus
      • Earthgore
      • Maw of the Infernal
      • Nerien'eth
      • Valkyn Skoria
    • Domihaus: This set now fires both its Flame and Physical Damage rings at the same time at half the original damage, and grants Weapon and Spell Damage while standing inside.
      Developer Comment:
      These changes were done since it is now much more common to have the same amount of Weapon and Spell Damage, and before it defaulted to only picking the Flame version if these stats were the same.
    • Glorgoloch the Destroyer: Fixed an issue where the visual effects and sounds of the player losing stacks of Flesh Fortress would play, even if the player had no stacks.
    • Markyn Ring of Majesty: This set now has a Current Bonus listing to show its effect on your character.

    Mythic Items
    • Gaze of Sithis: Fixed an issue where this item’s no block mitigation could fail to apply.

    • 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.

    PvP Sourced
    • Dark Convergence:
      • Reduced this set's damage by approximately 59% but increased the scaling per target to 50%, up from 10%.
      • Reduced the radius of the effect to 10 meters, down from 12.
      • This set now pulls once after its delay, rather than twice over its duration.
      • The pull now pulls all nearby targets rather than 6 per pull so that it remains effective against large groups.
      • This set now has new visual effects to help better define its radius attack sources and timing of the detonation.
      • Fixed an issue where this set could hit targets outside of its line of sight or pull them from areas they should not have been.
      • Fixed an issue where the ramping damage bonus from this set could fail against some targets in certain situations.
      Developer Comment:
      This set is currently seeing a lot of success in its original target area of killing large groups and players who don't respect the Area of Effect. However, it's doing its job a little too well and being run in situations of low target counts, which has led to situations where the set feels too good at a general purpose rather than something more niche like Vicious Death. We're reigning in the damage a bit so it's less effective against small player counts, the radius to better match its visual effects, and the pull to reduce situations of being yo-yoed around.
    • Deadly Strikes: Reduced this sets damage done bonus to over time and channeled abilities to 15%, down from 18%.
    • 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.
    • Morag Tong: Fixed an issue where this set did not proc off some attacks, such as Acid Spray.
    • Plaguebreak:
      • This set now has a 2 second delay before it starts dealing damage and ticks every 2 seconds rather than every second.
      • Increased the damage per tick by approximately 82%, resulting in an approximate 18% loss in damage over its total duration.
      • Reduced the damage of the explosion by approximately 52%, but increased the scaling per target to 50%, up from 10%.
      • This set now properly fires its explosion when the target dies while under the effect of the Damage over Time.
      Developer Comment:
      Currently, this set feels like it is a better version of most Damage over Time sets, such as Hunter's Venom or Viper's Sting, where it can output decent pressure but with the added bonus of an explosion if removed early. We've toned down both the Damage over Time and the damage of the explosion against low target counts, while increasing the damage against large target counts to ensure it continues smashing groups who are chain casting purges with reckless abandon. Overall, this should help reduce the need to purge the set and make it far less oppressive to fight against as a solo or low group count player.
    • Thews of the Harbinger: Fixed an issue where this set could proc off other procs.
    • Wrath of the Imperium: This set now grants 129 Weapon and Spell Damage for its 2-piece and 325 Weapon and Spell Damage to ranged Direct Damage attacks for its 3-pieces, rather than 657 Spell Critical and 1829 Spell Critical for those attacks.

    • Chaotic Whirlwind: Updated the audio associated with this set.
    • Mantle of Siroria: This set now only procs off of Light and Heavy Attacks, rather than any source of single target Direct Damage.
