PTS Patch Notes v2.7.0 (Homestead)

Community Manager
Welcome to The Elder Scrolls Online v2.7.0, featuring Homestead! This free update introduces our player housing system with 39 uniquely-themed homes you can acquire throughout Tamriel. With over 2,000 individual decorative and furniture options, plus Furnishing Crafting, you’ll have a lot of options available to make your home truly yours.

In addition to this massive new system, we’ve also added Master Crafting Writs, four new Motifs, and updated several sources of itemization in Cyrodiil and the Imperial City, all of which are detailed below. You’ll also find that we’ve put a focus on improving the balance across all classes and skills, and we look forward to reading your feedback after you’ve had a chance to try everything out.

As always, we’ve made several fixes and improvements to all previously DLC game packs and the base game patch. We can’t wait to hear what you think of our latest update, which is approximately 4.02 GB in size. Thanks, and enjoy!

    For this update, we are supplying one character template with 561 Champion Points. Your starting point will be in Wayrest, and you will have a wayshrine unlocked in every zone’s capital city (excluding starter zones). You will have all the same items available from the previous PTS testing cycle for One Tamriel in addition to some new items supporting Homestead:
    • The template contains a new item in your inventory, The Homeowner’s Crate. This crate contains:
      • Multiples of the Furnisher’s Materials Crate, which contains 200 of each of the base materials used in crafting furniture items.
      • The Exquisite Furniture Tome, which contains nearly all of the Furniture-crafting recipes available in the game at present.
      • The recipe for the Target Dummy furniture item, which is the exception to the above book.
      • The Cozy Crafter’s Crate, which contains a large number of Crafting Stations that can be placed in the home – including Attunable Crafting Stations, which can be used to create item set-crafting stations.
      • Containers which contain the Collectibles for all homes available in the base game, from the Inn rooms and Apartments, up through Small, Medium, and Large homes, and including Manors.
    • The Crafter crate has been updated to include the new Styles and their Style Items for Mazzatun, Silken Ring, Ebony, and Ra Gada.
    • Added more gold to the template in case you’d like to test the buying of houses “the actual way”.

    • Many NPCs walking on plants and tables have been brought back to solid ground.

    • Dogs can no longer teleport while chasing cats (much to the disappointment of the dogs).
    • The Unveiling: Razum-dar will no longer try to walk through doors by mashing his face into it. Silly Khajiit, that's not how doors work.

    • Dayarrus will no longer spawn in the floor.

    • Unearthing the Past: Fixed an issue where quest hints would tell you to "Retrieve Staff" even though the event was automatic, making the hint moot. Now there is no hint.

    • Until Death: Fixed an issue where you could use the dog whistle in a certain spot in Rivenspire. That's way too far away to be useful.

    • Magister Marthine Augier is now officially a "Magister" and not a "Guildmagister"—an archaic title that only existed for a brief time within the Mages Guild.

    • The Fading Tree: Laniriel will no longer occasionally despawn at the end of this quest.

    Malabal Tor
