    You are not alone, since Elsweyr lag is everywhere the game jerks , audio is delayed or non existent, everything is extremely delayed , cant bar swap abilities dont work, invisible enemies.. to name just a few problems..
    Dungeons are an absolute no go ! You can get away with easier dungeons even if it visually still a big mess ,only because they are easy and it doesn’t matter if you mis a mechanic for example.
    But its a real shame Me and my friends have had to put a halt on doing the harder dlc dungeons until its sorted out.
    If i dont notice an increase in game performance after mid week maintenance i have decided i will be unsubscribing from eso plus and probably stop playing altogether. Really is so unenjoyable at the moment.

    same here, we were running vet dungeons to get all the skins on HM etc... we'd done vMHK on hard mode a couple of weeks ago, grouped to do the 0 death - and it was impossible. we were getting 1 - banged by add's that we couldnt even see in the same room. we've given up until this mess is fixed.

    Im getting the same thing. Never had a problem before, but since the update I’m getting lag and constant frame drops. Sent a ticket and just got the traditional turn it on and off list of try theses things lol.

    Im getting aweful performance too on Xbox One X. It was ok patch day but went back to how it was within a day orso. Seems worse when you come out of a wayshrine. Feels like the FPS is in single figures for 10-20 seconds after spawning at the wayshrine. Today is the worse it has been so far. I was getting massive packet loss. Id interact with a quest objective and freeze for 5-6 then id see the objective destroyed and 3 enemy beating me to death!

    Unplayable for me. Will quit soon. I cannot take it any longer. :(

    I have a great internet connection and never had lag like this before. This game is unplayable. My sound freezes, invisible enemies are hitting me, and my fps is a slide show.

    I did all the usual troubleshooting steps and it did absolutely nothing to improve this. Been playing since March 2018 and now, all the sudden, this horrible lag. Really doubt it is on my end. Please fix this before frustration drives the player base to another game.

    I know I'm getting to the point of just giving up with this game and I've been playing ever since it first released on XB1. I mean with all the problems, including the FPS drops, the sound issues, invisible enemies, freezing load screens and so on kind of wears out a dedicated player after a while.

    It’s super frustrating that Zenimax Online don’t even acknowledge the issue or let us know it’s atleast being worked on.

    That’s presumably because they don’t test or even play their own game on console post change go live

    The fact is the problem is very real, it is not local and not perceived. It is affecting all versions including xb1x and the silence tells it all.

    I've not had too terrible of lag though I have a great connection but the frame drops are rediculous I'm talking I freeze between frames sometimes. It can happen anywhere especially cyrodiil. Have 2 Xbox one x's same results one set 4k hdr10 other is on my gaming monitor at 1440p. I did reinstall the game and it ran smooth as butter until I got on the next day.

    lol its an absolute joke. I wish I could remember the person who suggested I post in technical support, would love to show them how it went.

    This issue is so bad right now and whats worse is that if you come on the forums you cannot find any information that zos is even aware of it. Now why would that be? Why would someone like @ZOS_BillE who tries to be as helpful as possible, not at least comment and say we are aware of it? Probably because they are told not to acknowledge it. All this talk of better communication and we never see it.

    This issue is particularly disturbing because it has pretty much made a few of my characters useless in elswyer. This issue happens everywhere but only happens on certain characters. Like my main stam sorc is busted but my necromancer is fine. Issues like this should be priority number one but NOPE its the crown store and pushing out updates.

    Game is really unplayable because of fps drops. Solo play is ok but group play is damn difficult

    I just want them to come out and say we know it’s a complete crap show on Xbox NA, we’re sorry but have no clue what to do.

    Tried playing for about an hour before giving up. Did a random dungeon everything was out of sync. One poor guy was randomly porting from spot to spot.
