PTS Patch Notes v5.1.1

Community Manager
The Elder Scrolls Online v5.1.1 adds the Witches Festival event for testing this week, along with several new spooky rewards. We’ve also implemented numerous fixes for the new Scalebreaker dungeons, and have made some adjustments to abilities and item sets. In the weeks to come, we'll continue to investigate the changes to healing and DoTs, the power level of some of the new and reworked item sets, and some of the reworked bonuses from abilities such as Onslaught.

During this patch, we’ll be turning on updates for the Activity Finder. While the UI itself looks the same visually, the backend has been completely rewritten. This rewrite should make the Activity Finder much more reliable, especially under heavy load. We’d encourage you to help us stress test this system on Wednesday, July 17 from 2-4pm EDT. During this time, we’ll be keeping a close eye on the LFG system and its behavior, and some of the development team will even be queueing for dungeons with you! Please be sure to review the known issues below, as well.

We're continuing to monitor feedback surrounding everything on the PTS, and appreciate all of the threads, reports and conversations. The size of this latest patch is 208MB.

    • Skill lines are available for purchase in this patch for 1 crown (this is not the final price), but the Undaunted skill line is currently broken and does not unlock properly on other characters. This will be fixed in a future PTS patch.

    • Many core combat abilities such as Sprint, Dodge, Bash, and bar swapping can fail to occur if cast within 100ms of activating an ability.  This is under investigation with high priority, and we’re working on getting it fixed as quickly as possible. 
    • Flame Clench and Dizzying Swing’s animation appear out of sync for the receiving target, but not the caster. This is due to the rank up progression of the stuns, and these two abilities will see adjustments to how they rank up in a future patch.
    • Tri Focus is not currently proccing with a Lightning Staff, but will be fixed in a future PTS patch.
    • Seventh Legion is both proccing and not proccing in areas it shouldn’t be. These will be fixed in a future PTS patch. Note that passives that proc are not considered “Ability casts”.
    • Searing Heat does not currently keep up to standards with our DoT audit, and will be updated in a future PTS patch.

    Activity Finder
    • Battlegrounds are currently unavailable while we test the new system. Note that it will appear as though you can queue for them, but you won't be transferred into the battleground.
    • Using a wayshrine after accepting a Ready Check, but before teleporting to the dungeon, will result in you being stuck in the queue.
    • If you leave a group at the end of the dungeon and queue for another dungeon, the UI will not correctly display your queue status after you are teleported out of that dungeon.
    • If two players leave your group mid-dungeon, you'll only be able to find 1 replacement under most circumstances.
    • You may get the reward for doing a random dungeon even though you queued for a specific one.

    • Reduced the number of hostiles at the base of the Stitches to improve performance.

    • Jode’s Core:
      • Fixed an issue where ground targeting AoE effects could injure an invisible Abnur Tharn used for directing warning shouts. As much as you may want to kill him, he is fairly critical for this scene and thus is now properly invulnerable.
      • Mulaamnir now animates properly during one of his attacks before the final boss fight.

    • The Sunspire Champion Senche-Lion mount now has the correct icon.
