PTS Patch Notes v10.0.2

Community Manager
The Elder Scrolls Online v10.0.2 contains many more fixes for Gold Road content including quests, zone content, and the new trial. We’ve also made a number of fixes for Scribing, including some skills and the questline. We've seen your feedback about script acquisition and are discussing possible adjustments for the future, and will keep you posted on how we intend to go forward.

Also this week, we’ve activated the Whitestrake’s Mayhem event for testing, and have made some adjustments to Guild Trader item sale timers. Note that today, April 29, we’ll be testing a number of commands on the backend that may periodically affect some Scribing skills or functionality; this test should be complete by 6pm EDT.

All PC EU characters have been copied for testing this week, and the approximate size of today’s patch is 521MB.

    Event Testing: Whitestrake’s Mayhem
    Arm yourself and march against the <insert loathed alliance here>! The Scroll of Pelinal’s Ferocity remains retired, with all bonuses during this event being passive; no buffs to track, no scroll to use. That said, the alteration to the associated Achievement remains in place, where you need only use the Basin of the Gore Virtuous from the intro quest to complete it.
    • As a refresher, the passive bonuses for this event are:
      • +100% Tel Var earned
      • +100% AP earned
      • +100% XP earned in PvP-enabled spaces (Cyrodiil, Imperial City, Battlegrounds)
    • You’ll receive Pelinal’s Boon Boxes from completing daily quests in Cyrodiil or Imperial City districts, or as a bonus reward in Rewards for the Worthy mails you receive.
    • Event tickets stay the same as previous Mayhems, with 2 tickets coming from the first Cyrodiil daily quest completed each day, and an additional 1 ticket for the first Imperial City district daily completed each day.
    • This season, boon boxes contain the usual offerings plus a chance to receive an unbound, tradeable style page for the Ayleid Lich outfit styles. If you’ve already earned such a page that day, you can instead earn pages from the returning Dovah’s Du’ul style or even the Gloamsedge style.
    • Imperial City bosses have a chance to drop pages for the Sancre Tor Paragon or Dovah’s Du’ul armor style.
    • The Impresario will begin carrying fragments of the new Anchorborn Welwa mount, starting with the first fragment.
    • This season’s Bags of Veteran’s Glory can contain the following items below, and will always give you something you don’t already have. All contents of these bags are bound to you.
      • Legion Zero Armor Style Pages
      • Legion Zero Vigiles Armor Style Pages
      • Second Legion Armor Style Pages
      • Standard-Bearer Emotes
      • Standard-Bearer Staves and Shields Style Pages
      • Ebonsteel Knight Armor Style Pages
      • Black Drake Armor Style Pages
      • Battle-Scarred Body and Face Markings
      • Black Drake Warpaint Body and Face Markings
      • House Dufort Banneret Armor Style Pages
      • Tools of Domination Weapon Style Pages
      • Gloamsedge Outfit Style Pages

    Guild Trader Timers
    Guild trader item sale timers have been reduced from 30 days to 14 days to allow for improvements in server performance by reducing strain on the database. Note that existing item listings will not be affected by this change. Please see this forum post for more information about this adjustment.
