PTS Patch Notes v8.0.3

Community Manager
The Elder Scrolls Online v8.0.3 continues to address issues involving High Isle quests, the new Trial, Companions and Tales of Tribute. Additionally, we’ve made some adjustments to Dragonknight abilities and some item sets, along with a number of crash fixes. We’ve also activated the Whitestrake’s Mayhem event for testing this week.

We want to give everyone a heads up that throughout the week, we’ll be making some adjustments to Tales of Tribute campaigns including changing the end time, ending a campaign, and starting a new campaign. This will occur at least once a day during the day (Eastern Standard Time).

Thanks for your patience and all your feedback so far! You can expect the size of this PTS patch to be approximately 522MB.

    Whitestrake’s Mayhem Event Testing
    Whitestrake's Mayhem returns to Cyrodiil and the Imperial City! Complete your introduction with Predicant Maera (or do it again this year if you want!) to receive your Scroll of Pelinal’s Ferocity.
    • Pelinal’s Boon Boxes are rewarded for completing daily quests in Cyrodiil or Imperial City district daily quests, or as a bonus reward with Rewards for the Worthy mails you receive.
      • These boxes contain a variety of goodies ranging from Tel-Var stones to Cyrodiil repair kits or soul gems, as well as a chance for Cyrodiil style pages, Daedric siege weapons, transmute geodes. 
      • There is also a very rare chance to receive a bag containing runeboxes for both of the new Battle-Scarred face and body markings. The bag is not tradeable, but the individual runeboxes are once taken out of the bag.
    • You can earn a total of 3 Event Tickets per day during this event.
      • The first 2 come from completing any daily quest that focuses on Cyrodiil or Battlegrounds. You may earn an additional ticket by completing an Imperial City District daily quest. Visit both places if you want to maximize your ticket earnings!
    • In addition to the rewards from previous Mayhems, this year’s new outfit style is the House Dufort Banneret Armor.
      • Style pages for this armor have a chance to drop from bosses in the Imperial City but are also available from the Impresario for 5 tickets each.
      • Bosses in the Imperial City also have a small chance to drop an additional page for last Mayhem's Black Drake Clanwrap armor style.
    • The helpful Reachman, Cullearn, remains at the Impresario's tent to model the Battle-Scarred face and body markings.
    • The Impresario will have bound style pages for the House Dufort Banneret Armor for 5 tickets each, as well as the face and body markings (sold separately) for 5 tickets each. Also available will be all three fragments of the Soulfire Dragon Illusion Pet as well as the first fragment of the Daggerfall Paladin costume.

    • Fixed an issue where a small number of Jewelry quest rewards had an invalid enchantment on them.

    Zeal of Zenithar
    • Fixed an issue where contents of reward parcels were bound when they shouldn't have been, particularly research scrolls and style pages or recipes. Some contents are still bound by design, such as bounty pouches, keys, and the like that are normally bound.
    • Fixed an issue where pickpocketing from NPCs for Zenithar's Delightful Parcel was happening less frequently than intended. It's still a very low chance, though!

    • Fixed an issue where some random encounters across Tamriel related to Zeal of Zenithar were spawning a bit too frequently.
    • Fixed an issue impacting Zanil Theran's visibility at the Belkarth Festival Grounds. He should be there any time he would also be in Coldharbour, and not only during Zeal at those times.
    • Fixed an issue where the Redguard Swordmaster training at the blacksmith's tent would encounter some spastic animation issues.
    • The Unrefusable Offer:
      • Fixed some animation issues with Amminus Varo during his conversations.
      • Reworked some conversation links that infer you can trade for the maple wood, which isn't true anymore as it is now a quest item rather than a real one.
    • Honest Toil: Corrected a typo in Fasaria's dialogue that said "baring" instead of "barring", the actual word she says.

    • Fixed an issue where Arox the Mutilator was temporarily invisible on the PTS.
    • The Druidic Provisioning Station antiquity furnishing now has gentle sparks and light coming from the fire inside.
    • Improved the camera behavior when using the Druidic Provisioning Station antiquity furnishing.
    • Centered the light cast by the "High Isle Streetlight, Paired" furnishing.
    • The "High Isle Lantern, Table" furnishing no longer tips over on its side when aligned to surfaces. (Turns out that was a serious fire hazard!)
    • Updated the name of the "High Isle Trunk, Compass Rose" furnishing to "High Isle Trunk, Ornate" to better match its appearance.
    • Removed unnecessary quotation marks from the song title in certain music box names, bringing their style in line with other music boxes.
    • Previewing furniture will no longer cause the sky to flash.

    • Removed the invisible barrier that was blocking access to the widow’s walk in Highhallow Hold.

    • Exiting a previewed home no longer causes endless loadscreens or crashes.

    • Fixed an issue where NPCs would sometimes animate incorrectly while turning to face your character.

    • Disabling Accessibility Mode will now return your Gamepad UI settings back to how you had them set previously.
    • Updated the iconography in the Activity Finder to better reflect disabled states of entries, such as the Dungeon Finder when you're below level 10.
    • You will no longer get a prompt to pickpocket NPCs who are laying down.

    Gamepad Mode
    • Added a new setting called "Use Keyboard Login". This will ensure that, by default, using the Gamepad UI in-game will still use the Keyboard UI before logging into the game world, similar to how it has in the past for PC players. You can toggle the option to use the Gamepad UI before logging in with a character, if desired.
    • Fixed an issue where icons in the Map Legend were rendering behind the background.
