There isn't a page on this so far, so I am creating one.

With this patch there have been big changes to the Mac version of ESO, which now requires High Sierra as minimum. As Gina stated there may be some issues...
"Mac Min Spec
We have switched the Mac renderer from OpenGL to MoltenVK (Metal) to support the upcoming release of the upcoming MacOS Mojave. Upon first launching the game, you will notice longer load times and frequent hitching as the shaders are rebuilt for MoltenVK, with some notable unstableness in this first PTS patch. We plan to make iterations throughout PTS to improve performance. To support these changes, we will be updating the minimum spec for all Mac players in Update 20. These will be as follows:
Operating System: macOS High Sierra v 10.13
Model: Late-2013 27-inch iMac and Newer
Hard Disk Space: 85 GB free HDD space
Internet: Internet Broadband Connection"
...Currently I cannot use the PTS at all!
Apart from other issues such as the vampire skill line being set to level 1, there are bugs with this new Mac version, which until ironed out, means testing is impossible.
The first bug I notice is that I cannot see any characters when I go to character creation. The room is there, but no character, it is invisible. I dont care so much about designing it as I am testing stats and build performance, so it's not a huge issue. You can get around this by choosing race, faction, random appearance and just creating character and logging in... once you load up you will then see the character.
Invisible items in housing - Can't see placement of items in housing
This second bug breaks the PTS for me. I am relying on the ability to place down sparring dummies, banker, merchant etc so I can run tests on different set ups. If I cannot see anything I place, I cannot use it! So currently, I cannot use the PTS, which is a pain because as a console player, I only bought the Mac version to access the PTS.
Cannot Push and Pull objects in housing
Pushing objects out to a greater distance and pulling objects closer in are not working in housing. L2 and R2 on the gamepad have no effect.
Gamepad is zooming in on maps
Gamepad is automatically zooming in on wayshrone maps so that you don't have a chance to see what is going on, making it hard to choose wayshrine locations. You cannot compensate for this. This issue may also berelated to the bug above, pushing and pulling objects in housing.
Blue, Purple, and Gold colours (such as used in jewelllery) are now appearing odd colours such as cyan, orange etc. I also noticed Nightblades red blur aura is actually blue now. Something very strange going on with all colours on Mac now.
Crashing when using Bank and Banker Assistant
Everytime you try to place something in a bank, or the banker assistant, the game just crashes to launcher. Tried this in different locations. Cannot use the bank at all.
If you are a Mac user and have noticed other bugs, perhaps it will be useful to note them here so that the team can look at what they need to fix in future patches
