OVERVIEW

This PTS patch is in preparation for Tamriel Unlimited, and contains some fixes for gameplay, itemization, and the Justice System. Please note that there will be additional fixes included in next week’s patch on the Live megaservers.


BIG CHANGES / UPDATES / NEW FEATURES

Tamriel Unlimited
  • Updated all in-game logos with new The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited logos.
  • Updated the initial start-up logo and game intro movies.
  • Updated all legal documents, which includes the following:
    • EULA
    • Terms of Service
    • Privacy Policy
    • Code of Conduct
  • Updated the credits and all copyright text.
  • Updated various tutorials that reference the name of the game.


FIXES & IMPROVEMENTS
Alliance War
General
  • Enemy keep bonuses have been restored!

Combat & Gameplay
Nightblade
  • Assassination
    • Grim Focus: This ability will now always play visual effects while it’s active so you know when the ability needs to be refreshed. We also fixed some visual issues with the spectral bow.

Templar
  • Restoring Light
    • Restoring Aura: This ability no longer removes major buffs from allies, such as Major Fortitude granted by Green Dragons Blood.

Armor
  • Light Armor
    • Concentration: Fixed an issue where this passive wasn’t granting any Spell Penetration.

World
  • Werewolf
    • Call of the Pack: Fixed an issue with this passive not correctly giving additional transformation time to nearby Werewolf allies. Call of the Pack now increases the duration of nearby allies’ Werewolf Transformation for 5 seconds at Rank I, and 10 seconds at Rank II when the caster activates Werewolf Transformation.
    • Tooltips for all Werewolf transformation abilities now show their duration.

Champion System
  • Fixed an issue where logging in with an existing unconverted character for the first time could restart the enlightenment process, once the process had begun.

Exploration & Itemization
Collections
  • Previewing a tabard while having a costume equipped will no longer cause your torso to disappear.

Item Sets
  • Burning Spellweave: Fixed an issue where this item set was giving Weapon Critical instead of Spell Critical.

Justice System
General
  • Renamed the purple-quality stealable item "Bolt of the Second Numidium” to “Bolt of the Nimidium.” Akulakhan will never realize its ability to transcend time. That right belongs to another golem.
  • Fixed an issue where you could receive bounty for a crime despite no visible witnesses being present.

    Can we get horses fixed too please? The "fix" applied to the last patch has actually made them worse, they trip over every little rock now and stop randomly :D
    Yeah. I never noticed an issue previously except in Cyrodiil. Now it's every 50ft, and I can't tell what the hell is causing it.

    It's a known bug which was caused by 1.6. Ironically the 1.6 patch notes said they were fixing the rare occurrences of this happening, but it's happening now more than ever!

    @ZOS_GinaBruno Hello again. Any update at all on when stamina Sorc changes are in the pipeline? I know it must be a very busy time there but I'm just wondering if there is a general timeframe you all are looking at. Also, is there any comment on now multiple people across different classes reporting their spell crit rates to be 10% less than the displayed value? Players are starting to pinpoint that perhaps it is the Light Armor passive that provides crit.

    So this really WAS ESO 2.0 all along :o

    Hehe. It changed enough to deserve it.

    Plus, it is transforming to Tamriel Unlimited, there really is no better time. The game has come so far since initial launch, glad I've been around for so much of it (since June 10th of last year)~

    Sure, it still has its share of bugs, but damn, even console games have their bugs. In Skyrim, from jumping onto a barrel in a little area within Whiterun, jumping from it to outside the city then running to around the back of it, you could pass right through a certain rock, and run under the building for the Companions (Jorvaskir or something like that...) and get a whooooole bunch of items and even gold you spent recently back from a gravity defying chest. xD

    So we can expect never to have an expansion pack for this game? I mean you just up'd the version number to 2.0 which is typically an expansion.

    it's typically a reference to the second year since the game launched, which is pretty close i guess

    also, no jesus beam & nirnhoned fix? tafak

    it supposed to recover small amount of hp/magicka/stamina but instead it nearly full recovers all resources on ultimate use.

    I'm getting Error 209 - PatchManifestError_VersionFail. The note said to contact support if this persists more than an hour, and I've already done a repair cycle.

    This skill is still broken and does not give the correct bonus. When you compare it to other skills that give a 40% movement speed it isn't even close. The animation works but the skill does not. Any news on fixing this ZOS?

    This is the vampire morph for 17sec movement speed increased by 40% after a drain. Everyone try it out and compare it to the alliance skill that gives you a 40% move boost. I don't think enough people are reporting it.

    Is the aiming of conal AOE's going to be fixed?

    Before 1.6, when I used Carve, my character would turn in the direction I had the recticle pointed and the attack would fire.

    Now, when I use carve, my character stays pointed the wrong way, often in the opposite direction of where i'm aiming, and the attack goes off into thin air.

    This also seems to be effecting nightblade refreshing path skill as well.

    If this was intentional, it is certainly undesirable, it was also unanounced in the patch notes.

    Renamed the purple-quality stealable item "Bolt of the Second Numidium” to “Bolt of the Nimidium.” Akulakhan will never realize its ability to transcend time. That right belongs to another golem.


    Typo, or on purpose?
