PC/Mac Patch Notes v5.0.5 (Elsweyr & Update 22)

Community Manager
Welcome to The Elder Scrolls Online v5.0.5 and our next Chapter: Elsweyr! In this wild and untamed land of the Khajiit, explore fertile grasslands, winding canyons, and wild borderlands where the Khajiit grow their famous moon-sugar crops. Elsweyr's capital is the beautiful city of Rimmen, currently occupied by Imperial mercenaries, where the local Khajiit are equal part residents and captives. Beyond the city, meet wandering nomads, navigate the scorching deserts of the Scar, and explore timeless Khajiiti ruins that are not as abandoned as they might seem. During your explorations, you’ll need to beware of the fearsome Dragons that soar the skies of Elsweyr!

In addition to this enticing zone, we’ve added the all-new Necromancer class for those that are looking to make the undead serve your will. This new class brings three unique and formidable Skill Lines for you to master. Overwhelm your foes with destructive elemental spells, encase yourself in protective bone and flesh, or bolster you and your allies with living death magic!

For a challenging group experience, you can gather your strongest allies to take on our newest 12-player Trial, Sunspire, that pits you against a group of menacing Dragons within an ancient temple of Alkosh. Similar to previous Trials, Sunspire includes a normal and Veteran version. However, this is the first time you’ll find each Dragon boss has its own Hard Mode. Additionally, if you’re able to complete all achievements associated with this Trial, you’ll be handsomely rewarded with the exclusive Sunspire Champion Senche-Lion Mount!

Elsweyr also brings 14 new item sets (including Perfected versions only found in Veteran Sunspire Trial), a number of new Collectibles, Dyes, and Titles, a new crafting ingredient, and even a unique expandable house that you’ll unlock simply by completing a portion of the main story!

Update 22, which is a free update as part of the base game, includes several exciting additions and features as well. We’ve introduced the Guild Finder system, which is a new tool to connect players to likeminded guilds. PvP players will surely have fun with the addition of Weapon Artifacts, which after picked up, will swap out your ability bar so you’ll be the living embodiment of this ancient weapon. There are also several campaign adjustments including Alliance-locked Campaigns, a new Imperial City Campaign, the removal of Guest Campaigns, and some changes to the Emperor Leaderboard. We’ve also reworked 6 existing item sets in the theme of Necromancy, and implemented a new tool for tracking logged combat events within your group.

We look forward to having you play our latest Chapter, which is approximately 7.94GB in size. Thank you, and enjoy your time in Elsweyr!
