Think I've discovered why so many blue screens and frame rate freezing after kills...Zenimax READ!

Okay, so a lot of people in-game have been complaining about the blue screens and frame rate freezing after killing and enemy (which, in trials or dungeons when large amounts of enemies are dying at the same time can result in a total screen freeze but you can still chat).

The common element, is that nearly ALL the users experiencing this issue have been magic users.

With that in mind, I run a magicka nightblade build that uses destruction staff backbar, and dual wield front bar.

Ran back to back to back dungeons a few times now, and the results are the SAME everytime. When enemies die on when I'm on my Destruction Staff, I get the freeze framing after kills, and I also blue screened a LOT after dropping Wall of Elements and I'm too quick to cast a light attack (meaning light weaving after WoE is a dangerous game of russian roullette if you don't want blue screening). But all the time I remain on my destruction staff, if the freeze framing after kills is in effect - it WILL happen on this bar.

Now... same dungeon, if I switch to my dual wield - the freeze framing goes away, and I rarely get blue screened on this bar. This is absolutely NOT a coincidence. I've kept a strong log of this happening now... I have kept log of the last 40 blue screens I've had (which is only a 2 week log, which is scary in itself). 33 of those blue screens happened when I had a staff (restoration or destruction) in my hands. Of those 29 out of 33 were the Destruction Staff. Of the remaining 7, 4 were dual wield and 3 were sword and shield (I rarely use a 2-hander so don't read anything into that).

Get this... out of the 29 Destruction Staff blue screens... 24 of them were directly AFTER I cast Wall of Elements in a trial or dungeon.

This is most definitely an ESO problem, so when I submit tickets I get tired of being told its my internet connection. I'm hard-wired to the modem with DNS flushed and ports opened. Connection is set up manually... its good, believe me. This is clearly a STAFF problem.... Let's please look into it - because it appears I've done more research and testing into this than the devs have.

    That's a pretty crazy way to complain about stamina vs magicka.

    Lol... I love both my stam and magicka characters equally :) But ZoS really need to address this issue. It's becoming a nightmare to try to light weave on a magicka user.

    WTH are Zenimax on this???? This is ridiculous... I'm giving you a MAJOR reason for blue screens and frame rate freezes - and you are nowhere to be seen.

    Do you even want to fix your game????

    @ZOS_GinaBruno can we check this out??

    I have noticed the freezing when an enemy dies, more obvious in PVE only because PVP has always been laggy anyway. What I had not considered was what character I was on and what weapon I have been using.

    My latest character is a magicka DK using 2 destruction fire staffs, so most of the time I have been on this one, ranking up in Blackwater. I cannot take it into any PVP battles of more than about 8 people without everyone freezing (on my screen) and me getting disconnected from the server.

    The other one I spend a lot of time on, especially for PVE is my magicka Nightblade, with a destro and a resto staff. With both of these characters I have noticed a freeze of about a half a second or so every time someone or something else dies, even if they are killed by someone else in my group.

    When I am on later, I will swap weapons and see if I notice any difference, or test one of my stam characters to see if the same issue occurs.

    (Edit)PS. I have only noticed this problem since the last patch.

    This has been happening long before this patch - but it's become way more frequent now. This is something that BADLY needs addressing, and unless we all start overwhelming them with submitted tickets - it will get put on the back burner.

    It seems they are more concerned in dealing with cry-baby PVP complaints than an actual working copy of their game.

    I have been saying this for the longest time wall is EVIL!

    i read a post where someone theorised that it was the CP passive (magic back on a kill) so i took out my CP and went & did a normal dungeon but the crashing/freezing droped frame rate continued

    You're correct in what you said OP.

    I experienced the same thing ( I quit my magicka sorc due to this issue )

    When on stam there are no blue screens... well not many not nearly as many.

    When killing an enemy with destro the game will 1-2 second hop (lag freeze) then continue on kill another... the same.

    It's an issue and I wish it was looked into.-

    Just simply being on your Destro staff side, no matter the ability you use, will cause frame rate freezes after kills. You can reloadui to fix it temporarily -but this isn't a viable option when you're in the middle of battle.

    Wall of Elements has blue screened me MANY times... it renders magicka characters utterly useless to play right now. Too unreliable.
