Welcome to The Elder Scrolls Online v4.2.0 and the Murkmire DLC Game Pack! In addition to a new zone and quests to enjoy, you’ll also come across two new world bosses and two delves, plus a new 4-player leaderboard Arena: Blackrose Prison. We’ve also added 12 new item sets obtainable from Murkmire content, new Motifs, 75 new furnishings, 50 new achievements, and many fun collectibles.

The base game update brings changes to Cyrodiil with destructible Bridges and Milegates, in addition to a refresh of Rewards for the Worthy item sets and an exclusive, new PvP collectible item. We’ve also introduced some improvements to the Housing Editor with Undo/Redo options and furniture grouping. And we know everyone’s excited to see you can now re-order your characters on the Character Select menu!

This PTS cycle includes two different character templates for you to utilize depending on what you plan on testing: one lower level template, and a high level template with all the new item sets.

We can’t wait to hear what you think of this latest update, which is approximately 3.1GB in size. Please be sure to utilize the in-game /feedback or /bug features, or post in the official discussion threads on the forums if you have feedback. Thanks, and stay moist.

    We have two Character Templates available for use on PTS cycle.
    • The first template is simply labeled "Murkmire", and functions much as previous Character Templates have.
      • This template includes boxes for all the new item sets, including the sets dropped in Murkmire, from Rewards for the Worthy mails, and from the new Blackrose Prison Arena.
      • This template starts you at level 50, with the maximum CP allowed for the update.
    • The second template is labeled "Murkmire (Low-Level)", and will create a level 10 character, in Murkmire, with non-set equipment and only basic supplies.
      • This is intended to help mirror a less experienced and less-well-equipped player's starting point in Murkmire to aid in testing purposes.
    • We've also corrected an issue with the Furnishing Recipe book found in template characters' inventories, preventing them from learning all furnishing recipes in the book.

    General
    • Siege weapons, with the exception of rams, can currently cause proc sets with ground targeted AoEs and point black AoEs to proc when hitting other siege weapons or keep pieces. This should be fixed in the next PTS patch.
    • You cannot currently knock other players off fixtures into the water.

    General
    • Pull abilities (such as Fiery Grip or Frozen Gate) may not display the crowd control immunity effects correctly after the target has been pulled to you.
    • The Precognition morph of Undo currently does not allow you to cast it while you are under the effects of certain crowd control effects, and may display an incorrect duration of the crowd control immunity buff in your bufftrackers.
    • Negate Magic and its morphs will not properly stun monsters for the full duration of the area of effect.
    • The snare applied by Aspect of Terror and its morphs currently will not display the correct duration in your bufftrackers when you use Break Free to remove the fear.

    Achievements
    • Fixed an issue where the Clockwork City Achievements "Clockwork City Adventurer" and "Clockwork City Grand Adventurer" were in the wrong order.
      • This resulted in a display issue which made it appear that it was not possible to complete "Clockwork City Grand Adventurer", even though it was still progressing properly and would unlock upon complete 24 of the appropriate Clockwork City quests.

    • Fixed an issue where the Bow chapter of the Welkynar style motif used the word "esthetics", instead of the more commonly-accepted "aesthetics". The pride of Summerset will suffer no less than perfect grammar and vocabulary.

    • Due to an outcry of the citizens, “Reman’s Plaza” in Alinor has been renamed to “Rinmawen’s Plaza”. The Kinlady of Alinor regrets this unfortunate episode and assures the good people of Summerset that the responsible party will be reminded of their civic duty.
