Maintenance for the week of August 19:
• ESO Website for maintenance – August 22, 7:00AM EDT (11:00 UTC)

I just don't understand why Patch Notes aren't released during or before maintenance...

    I think the most likely answer is that patch notes are not posted as soon as server goes down simply because they are not written yet.

    Nope, they are usually written and posted before the servers go down .

    Not usually. Sometimes. When the feature lockdown already happened in advance. Which is not always the case.

    It's usually the case.

    They were prepped Friday afternoon, but edits were still being made this morning during maintenance.

    Gina explained it like this:
    Even if there would be no changes from last PTS cycle, they don't post natch pores earlier because when applying to live something may cause some problems, so untill they are sure everything was implemented without any issues they won't post notes, just to avoid confusion.

    Thank you. Best answer so far! :)

    I guess posting notes with the patch is something radical these days.

    @ZOS_GinaBruno

    Gina to have the notes just before the patch starts is surely do-able? ESO fans will read them in depth during down time.
