Community Manager
Welcome to The Elder Scrolls Online v9.0.5 and our brand-new Chapter: Necrom! Journey to the remote Telvanni Peninsula, enclave of the imperious wizards of House Telvanni, before losing yourself in the winding labyrinths of Apocrypha, domain of the Daedric Prince of Forbidden Knowledge, Hermaeus Mora!

In addition to exploring the mysteries and wonders of the Telvanni Peninsula and Apocrypha, this Chapter introduces a new class – the Arcanist – and in order to ensure everyone can create an Arcanist, we’re giving everyone one free character slot!

Draw on the strength of two new Companions to help you on your journeys, including repelling the dark forces at work in the Bastion Nymic world events. For those seeking a true challenge, make sure to explore Sanity’s Edge, a new 12-player Trial located in the southeast of the Telvanni Peninsula.

Necrom also includes several new item sets for you to obtain, new Antiquities, many new Collectibles, and even a new Tales of Tribute Patron Deck. For you housing enthusiasts, there are 2 new homes and lots of new furnishings.

Update 38 adds several new quality of life features including the ability to favorite collectibles, filleting multiple stacks of fish, some additional reset timer changes, and making it so your friend Stuga will no longer chase you down relentlessly.

We can’t wait for you to jump into this Chapter – which is approximately 5.56GB in size. Enjoy!

    Necrom Chapter

    New Zones – Telvanni Peninsula & Apocrypha
    Explore two new zones as you unravel the Shadows over Morrowind storyline! In this update, you’ll begin your journey in the Telvanni Peninsula, one of the most remote areas in the Morrowind province. From there, you’ll gain access to Apocrypha, Hermaeus Mora’s personal domain in Oblivion.
    • To begin your adventures in Necrom, you can do any of the following:
      • Create a new character and play through the tutorial
      • Enter the zone with an existing character by one of the following means:
        • Use a boat or cart outside Elden Root, Mournhold, or Wayrest to travel to the Necrom Docks
        • Travel to a friend who is already in the Telvanni Peninsula or Apocrypha
    • After you complete the tutorial or otherwise arrive in the Telvanni Peninsula, seek out Leramil the Wise awaiting for your arrival at various locations in and around Necrom. She’ll ask you for help in the Main Story and send you to meet with the Daedric Prince of Forbidden Knowledge, Hermaeus Mora.
    • In addition to the Main Story, the Necrom Chapter includes the following activities:
      • Six delves, two in the Telvanni Peninsula and four in Apocrypha, each with its own Skyshard, boss, and associated content.
      • Six challenging world bosses, from Coryls the Chain-Maker and House Dres’ terrifying slavers encroaching on House Telvanni’s lands, to the mind-bending Prime Cataloguer, a Seeker that toils to the point of madness in the Libram Cathedral in Apocrypha.
      • Two public dungeons: the once-beautiful island of Gorne, a sanitarium for the maddened mages of House Telvanni now overrun by Daedra interested only in sowing chaos, and the enigmatic Underweave, a vast and unknowable facility where Hermaeus Mora’s hostile minions process the fates of realities that never came to pass.
      • Three new set crafting locations
      • Nine additional quest objectives
      • Multiple side quests, unique distractions and many other encounters sown throughout the Telvanni Peninsula and Apocrypha

    Bastion Nymic World Events
    Shadows loom over both Apocrypha and the Telvanni Peninsula as a coterie of dark forces strike out at Hermaeus Mora to learn his most guarded secrets. These dark forces, led by a sinister figure known as the Herald, have set their eyes on Bastion Nymic, a fortress of Hermeaus Mora’s realm which holds Nymics – powerful names that can control Daedra once learned.
    • To thwart these forces, you must first make contact with Ordinator Tandessa, a Hermaeus Mora worshipper masquerading as one of the proud Ordinators of the Tribunal, and accept her request for aid. Once that’s done, you will need to scour the lands of the Telvanni Peninsula or Apocrypha for Herald’s Seekers, corrupted gatekeepers of Bastion Nymic.
      • These maddened sentries will need to be killed so their ichor can be harvested and used to open the way to Bastion Nymic. Be prepared and travel with allies – they won’t go down easily!
    • Once you have enough ichor, you can travel to one of Bastion Nymic’s entry portals and use the ichor to activate it. Once inside, the true challenge begins!
      • You and your group must fight your way through various districts of Bastion Nymic, felling foes and unravelling secrets until you confront the Herald at the heart of the fortress and kill them.
      • Once the invaders have been dispatched, you can claim your prize from Ordinator Tandessa.
    • As you explore Bastion Nymic, keep an eye out for secrets and make sure to bring friends! You won’t be able to rely on the help of strangers once inside!

    New Class: The Arcanist
    Owning the Necrom Chapter will allow you to channel the eldritch powers of Apocrypha as an Arcanist! These scholarly spellcasters channel secret runes and abyssal spells to destroy their enemies, heal their allies, and defend against any foe.
    • The Arcanist features a unique mechanic where some abilities can build or spend Crux. Each Crux you have, up to three maximum, will either passively increase your capabilities in combat or add further capabilities to abilities that spend Crux.
      • Crux gives the Arcanist a unique gameplay experience not yet seen in ESO and offers a greater variety in your gameplay whether you’re in Trials, questing or PvP.
      • You’ll see how much Crux you currently have by the floating runes circling your character.
      • You can only generate Crux while in combat.
    • We’ve also added a new UI feature to help aim your Fatecarver and Remedy Cascade abilities. 
      • The new “Aim Assist” function is found in the Accessibility panel in your options, which gives your targeting a little help at 100% value. 
      • This can be reduced all the way to 0 (disabled) if desired.

    Two New Companions: Sharp-as-Night and Azadar al-Cybiades
    Two new Companions can be befriended in Necrom by completing their associated Chapter content. Sharp-as-Night, the gruff mercenary, can be found near the city gates of Necrom. The bombastic and personable Azandar al-Cybiades, magus supreme, can be found around the outskirts of Cipher’s Midden in Apocrypha.
    • If you have access to the Necrom Chapter, you can unlock the two Companions through completing associated quests in the Necrom zone.
    • Once either introduction quest is completed, the respective Companion collectible will be granted.
      • These collectibles can be found in the Collections menu under the Allies category, in the Companion subcategory.
      • You may have either a Companion or an Assistant active at one time.
      • Companion collectibles may be activated from the Collections menu or quick slotted for ease of use.
      • Once unlocked, other characters on your account will need to also complete the associated introductory objective to utilize Sharp or Azandar, but skill line, level progression and equipment are preserved on each Companion regardless which character summoned them.
    • Each Companion possesses a passive perk ability which benefits you while the Companion is active, which can be seen via the Companion menu. This perk may also be permanently unlocked via Companion achievement accomplishment.
      • Sharp provides “Sharp’s Patience” which offers an improved chance at finding trophy fish and slightly reducing reel time.
      • Azandar grants “Azandar’s Inquisitiveness” which gives you a chance to discover research portfolios when searching containers. Portfolios can contain crafting recipes, treasure maps, research notes, survey reports, and other documents of value.

    New Trial: Sanity’s Edge
    A mind is a terrible thing to waste, especially one as bright and holds as much promise as that of Warlock Vanton. Hubris though got the better of him and now he needs help defeating the enemy unraveling his conscious. Travel into the mind of a mage and see just what his dreams and nightmares entail…
    • Sanity’s Edge is a 12-player Trial in southern Telvanni Peninsula.
    • The Trial includes a normal version in addition to a challenging Veteran version.
    • There are unique item sets within the trial including Perfected versions only found in Veteran difficulty.
    • Unique Achievement awards are available for completing this Trial, including:
      • A unique Body and Face Marking
      • A unique Mount
      • Several Titles
      • Unique housing items

    Update 38 Base Game

    Reset Timer Changes
    Monthly Leaderboards, Cyrodiil and Tribute campaigns will now reset on the first of each month.
    • Cyrodiil Campaigns
      • Starting with this update and moving forward, each of the old 30-day Cyrodiil campaigns will default to resetting on the first of the month at the daily reset time.
      • As a one-time adjustment, any campaigns which would have reset sometime in June will instead reset on the first of July.
    • Tribute Campaigns
      • While these already reset on the first of each month, Tribute Campaigns now reset at the daily reset time as well.
    • Sharing Hircine’s Gift (Werewolf lycanthropy) and Noxophilic Sanguivoria (Vampirism) will change from a 7-day cooldown to be on the Weekly Reset instead.

    Collectible Favorites
    Collectibles can now be favorited to have them sorted to the top of the UI in the Collections menu.
    • To favorite a collectible:
      • Keyboard: Right-click the collectible and select "Add to Favorites"
      • Gamepad: Press the "Actions" keybind and select "Add to Favorites"
    • There is a limit of 100 total favorites across all collectible categories, except mounts where there is no limit.
    • There are a number of categories that do not support favoriting, which include the following:
      • Customized Actions
      • Emotes
      • Furnishings
      • Fragments
      • Item Set Collections
      • Outfit Styles
      • Special
      • Stories
      • Tales of Tribute Patrons
      • Upgrades

    Random Mounts
    You can now set your active mount to "Random Favorite Mount" or "Random Mount". When "Random Favorite Mount" is selected, activating your mount in the world will pick one of your favorite mounts each time. With "Random Mount" selected instead, it will choose from all of your collected mounts instead.

    Filleting Multiple Stacks of Fish
    We’ve added the capability to fillet multiple fish simultaneously. This feature can be accessed by visiting any Provisioning station.
    • There is a new tab at all Provisioning stations dedicated to filleting fish.
    • You can fillet multiple stacks of fish simultaneously.
    • Filleting fish one at a time from your inventory remains unchanged.
    • We’ve added a new tutorial and help texts for filleting fish.

    New PvP Keep Messaging
    We’ve added new messaging for guilds that claim keeps and resources in Cyrodiil. This new feature is delivered through a chat message or on-screen notification stating how many guards were killed and by how many enemy combatants were in the area at the time. There are also follow up messages noting when guards are no longer being killed at a claimed keep, outpost or resource.
    • This messaging only applies to players within Cyrodiil and match the Alliance of the keep/resource/outpost.
    • If a Guild owns a Keep and its resources are claimed by other guilds, the Keep owner will also be notified when resource guards are killed. 
    • This new feature can be found in your Social menu in the game options; you can choose where the messages are displayed or you can disable them entirely. 

    Do you know how long I’ve been waiting for this change?!
    Stuga is now stationary near certain taverns in Daggerfall, Davon's Watch, and Vulkhel Guard. She will still try to flag you down, of course, but will no longer endlessly chase you and only shouts her greeting when you enter into a certain proximity.

    It’s the most exciting time of the year, our big yearly Chapter release! This time around we’re sticking to what we’ve been learning over the years, where we mainly keep large scale changes out of the Chapter update so you can focus more on the meaty new content, and especially so since this year the Arcanist joins the ranks as our 7th playable class. That being said, we still have a handful of adjustments and fixes coming this time around, mainly focused on bug squashing and targeted adjustments based on feedback we’ve seen since Updates 36 and 37.

    One of the main callouts we hope will make life easier for our courageous warriors is the update to melee attack range being a default of 7 meters, rather than 5. Some of you have been around long enough to know this was our original standard – which changed quite a while back – but the game has evolved quite a bit since then and we’re confident we can move back to this experience to better align with our combat pacing and feel. This extra 2 meters won’t be astronomical, but we hope that it reduces the likelihood of missing melee attacks in high mobility encounters and gives those who stay up close and personal a few more precious moments to react to in coming threats.

    In addition to this, we have some class adjustments coming in primarily focused on Templar and Sorcerer, which we saw a lot of discussion on over the past few months. While the change list below won’t touch every topic or problem space we’ve seen, we hope these adjustments help bolster these classes’ strengths in the right places, without having them go overboard. One main bit of feedback we saw for Templar was that they don’t feel as impactful in their ability to jump into the fray and hold their own, so we’ve looked at improving some of their defensive capabilities to better enable their offensive windows without needing to constantly turtle up as much as they do. To accomplish this, we’re allowing Rune Focus’ heal to partially enable at all times and gain strength when stationary, to help the class gain some staying power while on the move. Speaking of on the move, we’re also adding Major Protection to their main movement skill – Focused Charge – to help enable a better offensive window when they dive headfirst into the fray.

    Sorcerers, on the other hand, have been commenting how they lack access to a robust amount of Major and Minor buffs and debuffs with their class kit, which we agree with. While we won’t be adding a ton of access in this update, we’re starting by sweetening the dark deals they make by adding Minor Berserk to Dark Exchange and its morphs, to help reward the risk of activating it and make their spell slinging truly a thing to fear. We’ll also be making their Volatile Familiars a little less volatile by making the stun from the activate only happen once, and sooner to the activation, so it feels more controlled and deliberate while also increasing the chance it applies the Charged status effect, making Minor Vulnerability more reliable to be active.

    We’ll have other changes to item sets and some minor class tweaks, like Necromancer’s big damage increase on Flame Skulls’ 3rd cast, but this covers our main focuses in this update outside of the shiny new toys you’ll get between the Arcanist and new sets. Stay safe out there, adventurers, and we hope to see you on the roads in Tamriel!

    • Fixed an issue where swapping bars while blocking and out of resources, while under the effects of Tri Focus or Stormweaver’s Cavort, could disable block until you dropped block and reactivated it.
    • Fixed an issue where sprinting while Heavy Attacking could lock you in sprint.
    • Melee abilities with a range of 5 meters have all been increased (back) to 7 meters, to aid in their use while moving and to offer more breathing room and reliability in landing.
      Developer Comment:
      We’re reverting the changes to melee attack range from years past to get them back where they were, since many of the original problems that caused that pass to be needed originally have been resolved with other targeted changes over time. It’s our hope that this helps make melee attack abilities far less frustrating to utilize in mobile encounters, as well as helping give melee builds slightly more reaction time to incoming mechanics. Note this does not affect radius sizes of abilities, only ranges.
    • Fixed an issue where you could become stuck resurrecting if you were hit by some staggers while resurrecting.
    • Fixed an issue where transitioning between zones or relogging could cause your current health to be lower than your Max Health when you had certain sources of Max Health bonuses, such as from Champion Points.
    • Fixed an issue where sources of Invisibility from things such as Shadow Cloak or potions could still allow you to be detected by other players in some cases, such as when you were wearing too many pieces of Heavy Armor, or when player targets had increases to Stealth Detection.
      • In efforts to keep the experience with detection and invisibility to operate similarly to previous iterations, we’ve increased the detection radius size of Detection potions to 45 meters. While this value is larger than before, it should still reveal invisible targets at the same distances as before, now that invisibility properly interacts with bonuses and penalties to detection sizes.
    • Fixed numerous issues where corpse consuming abilities could or couldn’t interact with corpses that had suffered unique death animations, such as disintegrating into a pile of ash. Corpse consuming abilities can now interact with any corpse that is consumable in nature, regardless of how the owner met their demise.
    • Fixed an issue where a health desync could occur when you used some specific abilities in a specific combination very specifically.
    • Fixed a typo for the Occult Hierophant in the Skill Advisor.
    • Fixed an issue with Skill Advisor having a passive learned too early.

    Buffs and Debuffs
    • Empower: Reduced this bonus to 70%, down from 80%.
      Developer Comment:
      Since we've started working on Heavy Attack build viability in the past year, we've seen a massive surge in their use, which is absolutely phenomenal for seeing more players being able to participate in end-game content at a much more digestible pace. While we're happy to see these builds being ran, we're seeing these builds inch a little too close to some of the high end builds with how much more simplified they are, and in some rare cases, they're outperforming a standard build. We're cutting down the damage bonus here ever so slightly in hopes that when you have Empower with a bunch of other Heavy Attack bonus sets, the numbers are still nice and juicy, but not as close to a full-on Light Attack build.

    • Ardent Flame
      • Inferno: Fixed an issue where the visual effects from this ability and its morphs would not disappear when their owner became undetectable with sources such as sneak or invisibility.
    • Draconic Power
      • Dark Talons
        • Burning Talons (morph): Reduced the damage over time by approximately 27%, but increased the duration to 5 seconds, up from 4.
      • Elder Dragon:
        • This passive no longer extends the range of melee attacks by 2 meters, as this is now once again their standard range.
        • This passive now increases your Health Recovery by 129/259 per Draconic Power ability slotted. rather than 2/5% per ability.

    • Grave Lord
      • Flame Skull: Increased the damage bonus of the 3rd cast for this ability and its morphs to 50%, up from 20%.

    • Assassination
      • Death Stroke: Increased the duration of this Ultimate and morphs’ debuffs to 8 seconds, up from 6.
        Developer Comment:
        For the masters of assassination, the Nightblade class is a little bit further behind in single target damage than we’d like. We’re increasing the uptime on this debuff to help Nightblades get more DPS and kill potential on priority targets.
    • Shadow
      • Path of Darkness: The effects from this ability and its morphs will now apply more consistently, rather than having different behaviors for line-of-sight rules across them.
      • Summon Shade: Fixed an issue where this ability and the Dark Shade morph could return as ranged abilities in some cases.
      • Veiled Strike
        • Concealed Weapon (morph): This morph now grants its damage done bonus for 10 seconds if Major Expedition was active while it was cast, rather than for 5 seconds when Major Expedition ends or was refreshed, to ensure the skill is used actively rather than passively. The damage bonus still operates the same for leaving sneak or invisibility.

    • Dark Magic
      • Dark Exchange: This ability and the Dark Conversion morph now also grant Minor Berserk for the 20 second duration they restore resources.
        • Dark Deal (morph): This morph now grants Minor Berserk and Minor Force for the 10 seconds it restores resources.
        Developer Comment:
        These abilities are meant to be the class’s primary resource restores skills, and while they do that just fine, they don’t offer any other reason to run leaving them feeling a bit behind when compared to other class resource skills like Restoring Focus or Bull Netch. To sweeten the dark deals occurring, we’re adding some named buffs for the duration to help the class reinforce their spell slinging nature, while making sure we don’t push them over the top in high end damage production with group compositions.
      • Negate Magic: Fixed an issue with this Ultimate and its morphs where they could not dispel another version of themselves. Previously, Negate Magic would only dispel Absorption Field or Suppression Field but fail to dispel an enemy Negate Magic, or any permutation where the Ultimates were of the same version. Now, any version of these Ultimates will actively dispel any version of the Ultimates they are placed on if they are sourced from enemies.
    • Daedric Summoning
      • Summon Storm Atronach:
        • The synergy from this Ultimate and its morphs, Charged Lightning, now grants Major Berserk for 10 seconds, up from 8.
        • Increased the amount of targets the synergy will target to 12, up from 6.
        Developer Comment:
        Since we’ve been slowly improving access to the highly coveted Major Berserk buff type (since we’re pretty generous with Major Protection) we wanted to make sure this source stands out in the pack as a special case and reason to consider bringing a Sorcerer or two to group compositions, without making them feel mandatory.
      • Summon Unstable Familiar
        • Summon Volatile Familiar (morph): This morph’s special active now only stuns on the 2nd tick, rather than the 4th and final ticks, to make the stun less volatile in nature and help reduce the passive feeling of the skill. To make up for this loss, we’re increasing the chance of applying the Charged status effect from the special active’s damage to 5% per tick, up from 1%. Zzzzap!

    • Aedric Spear
      • Focused Charge: This ability and its morphs now grant Major Protection for 4 seconds after reaching your target.
        • Explosive Charge: This morph now also extends the duration of Major Protection to 10 seconds.
        Developer Comment:
        After the adjustments to Templar’s damage to make sure they’re more in line with other classes, we’ve seen them drop down in effectiveness in PvP situations in some areas. Rather than bloating out their damage again, we’re trying to help enable them to stay in the fray longer and keep up the pressure by adding some defensive bonuses when they dive into foes, helping them go all in before needing to peel back and turtle up.
    • Dawn’s Wrath
      • Backlash: This ability and its morphs now need 60% less total damage needed to reach their final values.
        Developer Comment:
        We're lowering the amount of damage needed for these abilities to reach their big boom numbers, as they needed values that were essentially impossible to achieve in PvP to get to their maximum power. The damage required will still be challenging to reach in PvP environments, and in most cases where opponents are taking countermeasures to deny or mitigate the applier's pressure, the damage will still not reach the maximum amount; we are doing this intentionally so Templars retain a weakness in some capacity. We'll continue to monitor this value and adjust accordingly, if necessary, after we get more data from live servers with how this change interacts with the other buffs the class received in this update.
      • Solar Flare: This ability and its morphs now also grant Sunsphere for 5 seconds after casting, increasing your damage done with class abilities by 5%.
        • Solar Barrage (morph): This morph also extends the duration of Sunsphere to 20 seconds.
    • Restoring Light
      • Lightweaver: Fixed an issue where this passive’s Ultimate could apply to the caster, rather than only allies, as its tooltip states.
      • Rune Focus:
        • This ability and its morphs now heal you for 2% of your Max Health every second they are active, rather than 4.5% of your Max Health while you are standing within the rune.
        • Increased this healing effect by 200% while you are standing in the rune, resulting in a 33.3% (repeating of course) increase overall while in the rune.
        • Fixed an issue where the heal from these abilities was not properly considered a Restoring Light heal.
        • Fixed an issue where these abilities were not considered as healing abilities in some cases.
        Developer Comment:
        After the changes to these abilities to grant them healing, we’ve seen a slight improvement in their ability to defend their sanctified grounds, but we’re noticing the class really suffers in the majority of content with mobility. While the class is meant to feel empowered while locked to an area, we’re trying to help them feel less clung to an area by offering some passive healing in between and doubling down (well, tripling in this case) when they decide to mark their fighting arena.

    • Animal Companions
      • Scorch: Fixed an issue with this ability and its morphs where they could fail to hit larger monsters in some cases.
    • Winter’s Embrace
      • Arctic Wind
        • Arctic Blast (morph):
          • The stun from this morph now fires after a 2 second delay, rather than immediately. Recasting the ability before the delay completes will reset the delay timer.
          • Fixed an issue where the stun ignored line of sight rules.

    • One Hand and Shield
      • Low Slash: This ability and morphs' secondary effects now last 15 seconds, up from 12.
      • Shield Wall: Fixed an issue where this Ultimate and its morphs’ block functionality would become lost after sprinting.
    • Dual Wield
      • Flurry: Fixed an issue with this ability and its morphs where they could sometimes, ever so incredibly rarely, only hit 3 times when weaving in extremely rapid succession (we’re talking within a 1ms time span).
    • Bow
      • Arrow Spray
        • Acid Spray (morph):
          • Increased the damage per tick of the Damage over Time effect of this morph by approximately 1%.
          • The Damage over Time from this morph will now always apply to the target, rather than only when they do not already have the DoT active.
          • Increased the duration to 5 seconds, up from 4.

    • Vampire
      • Fixed an issue where feeding on hostile enemies at Stage 4 Vampirism could cause their health bar to become desynced.

    • Argonian
      • Resourceful: Fixed an issue where the heal from this passive was not considered a proc.

    • All companions now gain an increasing amount of experience based on the level of rapport they have reached with the associated player character. Each rapport tier above Cordial provides an additional 5% absolute experience gain over the base 15% amount received at cordial and below.
      • The amount of experience gained by the companion does not reduce the amount of experience received by the player and experience-increasing effects applied to the player do increase the amount received by the companion as a result.
    • Significantly reduced the amount of rapport needed to reach the Friendly, Close, Allied, and Companion rapport tiers for all companions.
    • In the companions collections book, search results no longer get into a bad state when your search contains results that the companion can't use.
    • Fixed an issue that could rarely result in potent potions being received due to having Bastian equipped, but not displaying the Companion icon in the loot stream.

    • Bastian
      • Searing Weapons: Fixed an issue where Searing Weapons could stack with itself if Bastian was given enough cooldown reduction.

    • Fixed an issue where numerous item sets could fail to show their additional telegraphs to enemies in certain situations, which includes the following:
      • Auroran’s Thunder
      • Frozen Watcher
      • Lady Malygda
      • Leeching Plate
      • Plague Slinger
      • Sellistrex
      • Thurvokun
      • Dark Convergence
      • Whorl of the Depths
    • Increased the bonus detection size of Detection Potions to 43.5 meters, up from 20 meters, so they continue to reveal invisible targets at the same distance as previous iterations.

    Ability Altering Weapons
    • Frenzied Momentum and Spectral Cloak: These sets will now only apply their effects if you cast their respective ability requirements while in combat.

    • Death’s Wind: Fixed an issue where this set had a target cap of 6, despite the tooltip stating “all enemies”.
    • Morkuldin: Fixed an issue where this set's summoned sword would sheathe itself after you left combat. Too many samurai flicks, I suppose.
    • Old Growth Brewer: This set now requires you to be in combat to gain its effects.
    • Order’s Wrath: Fixed an issue where this set could not be used in no-proc campaigns.
    • Vastarie’s Tutelage: Fixed an issue where this set was reducing the cost of sprint.

    Dungeon & Arena
    • Crusader: Better optimized the visual effects for this set, to reduce their impact on client performance.
    • Runecarver’s Blaze: Fixed an issue where this set did not activate off of Hurricane.
    • Scavenging Demise: Fixed an issue where this set could trigger when applying poisons that dealt no damage.
    • Storm Master:
      • This set’s bonus damage with Light and Heavy Attacks now only works against monsters.
      • Reduced the duration of the bonus to 8 seconds, down from 20 seconds.
      • Reduced the cooldown to 5 seconds, down from 10.

    Monster Masks
    • Lady Thorn: Fixed an issue where the synergy granted from this set, Sanguine Burst, did not obey line of sight rules.
    • Nunatak:
      • This set now applies a 40% snare to enemies hit, rather than a stacking snare from 25% to 100%.
      • Major Brittle now applies on enemies that have been damaged 4 or more times by the set, rather than only on the 4th hit.
      • Fixed an issue where the snare from this set could stack with other snares and could cause enemies to become unable to move.
    • Ozezan's Inferno:
      • Fixed an issue where this set's Armor could fail to reduce damage against procs.
      • Fixed an issue where this set could proc off procs.
      • Fixed an issue where this set's Armor did not appear in the character sheet, despite being active.
    • Scourge Harvester: Fixed an issue where this set did not obey line of sight rules.

    • Stormweaver's Cavort: This set can now be used in no-proc Cyrodiil campaigns.

    • Prisoner’s Rags: Fixed an issue where this set would fail to persist if you bar swapped while sprinting.
    • Skooma Smuggler: This set now requires you to be in combat to gain its effects.

    PvP Sourced
    • Coward’s Gear: Fixed an issue where this set would fail to persist if you bar swapped while sprinting.
    • Mara's Balm: Increased the cooldown of this set's cleanse to 30 seconds, up from 15.
      Developer Comment:
      We're increasing the cooldown here in hopes that this set no longer is such a hard counter to Damage over Time focused builds, where it can still help ease their pressure and demand attackers to recast them more frequently, while ensuring it has a slightly longer cooldown than most of those effects have for duration.
    • Plaguebreak: This set now will only attempt to apply itself to enemy players, rather than any enemy. Note that the explosion can still damage and be amplified by nearby non-players.
      Developer Comment:
      This change was made to correct a behavior we've been seeing in PvP areas where you could apply this set to entities (such as pets or guards) that lacked critical knowledge of how to counter-play the mechanics introduced. This also hits the truly creative uses of the set in PvE where we have seen some humorous videos that wipe out entire dungeons with relative ease, which while we appreciated the ingenuity, it was *slightly* over performing.
    • Twin Sisters: Fixed an issue where this set did not obey line of sight rules.

    • Eye of Nahviintaas: Fixed an issue where this set was reducing the cost of sprint.
    • Infallible Mage: This set’s bonus damage with Heavy Attacks now only works against monsters.
