Welcome to The Elder Scrolls Online v6.2.0 and the Markarth DLC Game Pack, featuring the epic conclusion of the Dark Heart of Skyrim! Markarth introduces not only the new zone of The Reach, but also adds two world bosses, two delves, and an exciting solo Arena that is sure to challenge you. We’ve also added several new collectibles, item sets, achievements, and titles for you to acquire, in addition to new Antiquities that can only be dug up in The Reach.

We’re excited to introduce Item Set Collections to the base game, a new system to help you find and manage all your item sets, along with increasing the cap for Transmute Crystals! We’re also re-adding group queues back to Battlegrounds, and have many bug fixes for the entire game.

We’ve copied all PC/Mac North American characters, and have also supplied two character templates to explore The Reach and new Arena. We hope you enjoy this latest update, which is approximately 10.67GB, and can’t wait to read your feedback!

    For this PTS cycle, we’re providing two templates for testing purposes: One max-level character that has nearly all items in the template bags, and a level 25 character that has some consumables and level-appropriate gear. Both templates will start you just outside of Markarth in the Reach. Additionally, we have made the following fixes and changes:
    • Altered the name of the "Monster Helmets" bag, found in the inventory of characters made with a Character Template, to "Mask Sets". 
    • Fixed an issue where the PTS container for Kyne's Kiss jewelry awarded items with the wrong set.

    • Some NPCs are missing their FaceFX and currently have what we’ve dubbed “puppet mouth”. This should be fixed in next week’s patch.

    General
    • Fixed an issue where certain pots of soup hanging over a campfire would grant two foods, instead of just one, when looted. No (extra) soup for you! 

    qm8pjd397er5.png
    Antiquities
    • Fixed an issue where some codex entries had their text cut off. 
    • Fixed an issue where excavating an Antiquity too quickly could cause the game to crash.

    woh3grgouu9z.png
    General
    • Fixed an issue that caused several map markers to disappear unexpectedly, primarily for homes in Western Skyrim and Blackreach.

    • The base of the “Moonlight Mirror” antiquity furnishing no longer appears hollow when viewed from below.
    • Sealed a small seam partway up the “Morthal Banner, Hanging” achievement furnishing.

    aj9v9n7vuttw.png
    General
    • Fixed a few instances where players you witnessed using a movement ability such as a charge, teleport, or blink could fail to properly animate.
    • Fixed an issue where activating instant cast area-bound abilities could cause your character to stop moving briefly.
    • Made several improvements to Light and Heavy Attacks as a result of the PTS test we held in March earlier this year:
      • Fixed an issue where Medium Attacks (non-fully charged Heavy Attacks) could deal less damage than Light Attacks in some cases, and more damage than fully charged Heavy Attacks in others.
      • Reduced the damage from all ranged Light and Medium Attacks by 10% to ensure they meet ranged damage standards. Heavy Attacks already meet these standards.
      • All Light, Medium, and Heavy Attacks now have a 700ms cooldown unique to their weapon configuration (Dual Wield, One Hand and Shield, etc.) rather than varying amounts between 500ms and 1 second. Cast times of Heavy Attacks have been increased or decreased to ensure their total Cast Time + Cooldown remains the same at this time.
      • All Light, Medium, and Heavy Attacks now dynamically scale with your highest offensive stats.
      • Removed the 200ms delay on Lightning and Restoration Staff Heavy Attacks, preventing some weird hiccups or stutters they could encounter.
      • Fixed an issue where Dual Wield Heavy Attacks would calculate their Sneak Attack damage incorrectly in some cases, producing absurdly high results.
      • Volendrung’s Medium Attacks now properly scale between Light and Heavy Attacks, rather than a flat 5000 damage regardless of charge time. Volendrung’s Heavy Attack damage has been reduced to 7560, down from 10,0000, to meet the normal scaling of a 2 handed weapon.

    Buffs and Debuffs
    • All Major and Minor Buffs and Debuffs have been hard coded to go through server validation sooner and more effectively as cached values, rather than abilities that exist on your character. This new system will also properly ensure that no two same buffs or debuffs can ever stack in effectiveness, rather than needing to be individually spot checked on each application. It will also prioritize duration-based sources rather than permanent ones, so you do not need to fear losing their effects. While doing so, we have also properly reigned in the power of these effects into our Set Bonus Efficiency (SBE) standard; Minor effects are now worth 2 set bonuses (previously between .4 and 4.2) and Major effects are worth 4 (previously between 2.14 and 13.3). The new values can be found below.
      • Minor Expedition: Increased to 15%, up from 10%.
      • Major Savagery and Prophecy: Increased to 12%, up from 10%.
      • Minor Breach: Increased to 2974, up from 1320.
      • Major Breach:
        • Increased to 5948, up from 5280.
        • Major Breach now affects both Physical and Spell Resistance equally.
      • Minor and Major Fracture: Yeeted from this plane of existence to embrace its missing other half, Minor and Major Ward.
      • Minor Resolve: Increased to 2974, up from 1320.
      • Major Resolve: Increased to 5948, up from 5280.
      • Minor Fortitude/Endurance/Intellect: Increased to 20%, up from 10%
      • Major Fortitude/Endurance/Intellect: Increased to 40%, up from 20%.
      • Minor Defile: Decreased to 8%, down from 15%.
      • Major Defile: Decreased to 16%, down from 30%.
      • Major Mending: Decreased to 16%, down from 25%.
      • Major Vitality: Decreased to 16%, down from 30%.
      • Major Evasion: Decreased to 20%, down from 25%
      • Minor Berserk: Decreased to 5%, down from 8%.
      • Major Berserk: Decreased to 10%, down from 25%.
      • Minor Protection: Decreased to 5%, down from 8%.
      • Major Protection: Decreased to 10%, down from 30%.
      • Minor Maim: Decreased to 5%, down from 15%.
      • Major Maim: Decreased to 10%, down from 25%.
      • Minor Vulnerability: Decreased to 5%, down from 8%.
      • Major Vulnerability: Decreased to 10%, down from 25%.
      • Minor Magickasteal: Decreased to 168 per hit, down from 300.
      • Major Aegis and Slayer:
        • Decreased to 10%, down from 15%.
        • Fixed an issue where Aegis was additive rather than multiplicative.
      • Minor Courage: Increased to 215, up from 129.
      • Major Courage: Increased to 430, up from 258.
      • Major Force: Increased to 20%, up from 15%.
      • [NEW] Minor Brittle: Increases the target’s Critical Damage taken by 10%
      • Major Brittle: Increases the target’s Critical Damage taken by 20%. Not yet sourced.
      • Minor Cowardice: This debuff has been reworked, and now reduces the target’s Weapon and Spell Damage by 215, rather than increasing their Ultimate cost abilities by 60%.
      • [NEW] Major Cowardice: Reduces a target’s Weapon and Spell Damage by 430.
      • Empower:
        • This buff now applies to all Light, Medium, and Heavy Attacks for its duration, and is no longer consumed on use.
        • The following sources of Empower now last 3 seconds, down from 5 to reflect the change that Empower is no longer consumed:
          • Aegis of Galenwae
          • Might of the Guild
          • Empowering Grip
          • Wrecking Blow
          • Ambush
    • Now that these bonuses have been reigned in, we have also made sure to keep item sets in their intended SBE range, so we have done a pass on all sets that source these effects to ensure that. While each of these bonuses is normally worth 2 for Minor and 4 for Major, they are worth .5 less than their original value while sourced on an item set, since they are mainly sourced via the abilities and passives in the game. This ensures if you opt to run a set that grants you a permanent major or minor buff, you’ll gain some extra effectiveness on top of that to ensure they aren’t completely wasted if you gain access to the buff from another source. We have not done a full pass on class abilities since the SBE system is generally meant to be designed for non-abilities; that said, we will keep a close eye on class functionality in PvE and PvP due to these changes.

    Necromancer
    • Grave Lord
      • Blastbones: Made some improvements to the cooldown duration of this ability, to reduce the chances of it becoming locked out despite the skeleton dying.
      • Frozen Colossus:
        • Removed this Ultimate and the morphs’ Major Vulnerability invulnerability.
        • Increased the duration of Major Vulnerability applied from these to 12 seconds per hit, up from 8. This will increase the total duration to 15 seconds per cast.

    Nightblade
    • Assassination
      • Executioner: This passive now restores 500/1000 Magicka and Stamina when it procs, rather than 938/1876 Magicka or Stamina depending on your highest maximum.
      • Master Assassin: This passive now increases your Physical and Spell Penetration against targets you are flanking by 1487/2974, rather than your Weapon and Spell Damage against them by 129/258.
        Developer Comment:
        While this passive is now in a much better place regarding its accessibility and use cases from Update 27, the class was performing a bit too well in high end PvE DPS. With the adjustment to Penetration, you can expect a little more damage in non-optimized PvE and PvP encounters against high mitigation targets, while tuning back some of their scaling in high end PvE content and specialized gank builds in PvP.
    • Shadow
      • Path of Darkness
        • Refreshing Path (morph): Fixed an issue where the visuals from this ability’s heal could last much longer than intended.
      • Summon Shade: Fixed an issue where this ability and morphs’ pet could attack innocents in some cases.
    • Siphoning
      • Soul Shred
        • Soul Siphon (morph): Fixed an issue where this Ultimate could aggro enemies, despite dealing no damage.
      • Drain Power
        • Power Extraction (morph):
          • This morph now applies Minor Cowardice to enemies hit, rather than reducing their Weapon and Spell Damage by a unique amount. This will result in a larger decrease in Weapon and Spell Damage, but one that cannot be stacked with other sources.
          • Reduced the base duration by 1 second, but the ability now ranks up in duration of this by 1 second per rank, up to 10 seconds.

    Templar
    • Aedric Spear
      • Spear Shards: Fixed an issue where the synergy from this ability could remove other synergies after being consumed.
      • Sun Shield
        • Blazing Shield (morph): Fixed an issue where this ability’s explosion visuals would multiply in intensity with the number of enemies hit, causing your screen to experience level 7 earthquakes and your eyes to be blinded with the brilliance of Meridia. The explosions will now always appear as well, regardless if you dealt damage.
    • Restoring Light
      • Healing Ritual
        • Ritual of Rebirth (morph): Fixed an issue where this heal was targeting the ally furthest from you within its range, rather than prioritizing allies who need the heal.

    Warden
    • Animal Companions
      • Feral Guardian: Fixed an issue where this Ultimate and morphs’ special attack, Crushing Swipe, could fail to hit large monsters like Dragons or Titans.
      • Scorch
        • Subterranean Assault (morph):
          • This morph no longer applies Fracture, as Deep Fissure now affects all Armor.
          • This ability now recasts itself after completing, once per cast.

    Weapon
    • Destruction Staff
      • Frost Staves have received adjustments to help them further stand out as a Tank and Support-oriented weapon type! Check out each ability adjusted to see what’s changed with the Frost version of the ability.
        Developer Comment:
        The original intent of the Frost Staff line was to enable Magicka users to successfully tank in PvE and PvP scenarios. Many of the tools provided by Frost Staff abilities either did not hold up to other tanking abilities, or directly conflicted with other Destruction Staff abilities. For Update 28, one of our goals was to update the Frost Staff line to address these concerns, making the Frost Staff abilities more in line with our tanking gameplay while also removing the pain points from the Staff. We also added more overall utility to the Frost Staff skills, giving them more viability as a backbar weapon to compliment support and bruiser playstyles.
      • Applying Chilled while actively holding a Frost Staff now applies Minor Brittle in addition to its other effects. Note that the Staff must be on your active bar when Chilled is applied for this to proc.
      • Destruction Expert: This passive now also grants 900/1800 Magicka whenever you absorb damage with a Frost Staff damage shield. This new effect can occur once every 10 seconds.
      • Destructive Touch: Fixed an issue where this ability and the Destructive Clench morph would aggro enemies before dealing damage.
        • Destructive Clench (morph): The Frost version of this morph now taunts enemies for 15 seconds.
      • Impulse: Each elemental type of this ability and its morphs have gained new functionality.
        • Flame Impulse now deals bonus damage that scales based on missing health if the target hit was burning.
        • Frost Impulse now applies Minor Protection to up to 6 group members for 6 seconds.
        • Shock Impulse now deals 5% more damage for each enemy hit, up to 30%.
      • Tri-Focus:
        • This passive no longer causes your Heavy Attacks with a Frost Staff to taunt the enemy.
        • Increased the strength of the Damage Shield granted from Heavy Attacking with a Frost Staff to 12.5/25% of your Max Health, up from 4/8%.
      • Wall of Elements:
        • The Frost version of this ability now applies a Damage Shield to you and 5 nearby group members that absorbs projectiles, but no longer snares enemies and deals 25% less damage than the other elemental version.
        • Fixed an issue where the Shock version of this ability and its morphs was not capped at hitting 6 targets, despite having auxiliary debuffs.
          • Elemental Blockade (morph): The Frost version of this morph now also applies an additional, smaller shield on you and group members in the area when it ends.
    • One Hand and Shield
      • Deadly Bash: Fixed an issue where this passive could be active while not wearing a Sword and Shield, which caused your character to fail to bash properly when at low Stamina, making you appear to jitter as if you drank Tamriel’s largest cup of coffee spiked with moon sugar.
      • Puncture: This ability now applies Major Breach rather than Fracture.
        • Pierce Armor (morph): This morph now applies Minor Breach as well.
    • Two Handed
      • Berserker Strike: Fixed an issue where this Ultimate and morphs’ camera shake when striking multiple targets would make you experience a brief but violent earthquake. The camera shake is now the same despite how many enemies you hit and is much more tame.

    Armor
    • Fixed an issue where some passives bonuses did not apply to your pets.

    World
    • Werewolf
      • Transforming into a Werewolf in front of NPCs will now properly be considered a criminal act and generate Infamy.  
      • Roar and Hircine’s Bounty: These abilities now always apply their Major Buffs while slotting, rather than only while in Werewolf form. This will fix issues where slotting these abilities outside of Werewolf form could prevent you from gaining their effects from any source.
        • Hircine’s Rage (morph): This morph now increases your damage taken by 8 to 5% depending on rank, down from 23 to 20%.

    Guild
    • Dark Brotherhood
      • Padomaic Spirit: This passive now triggers whenever you kill an enemy with the Blade of Woe, rather than whenever you kill a citizen. This means it will now work on non-civilian type enemies if you use the Blade of Woe, but will no longer proc off kills on civilians with non-Blade of Woe means. In addition to these changes, this passive will now have significantly less performance implications than before.
    • Mages Guild
      • Fire Rune: Fixed an issue where this ability and its morphs’ screen shake would multiply based on the amount of targets hit, causing your camera to violently shake.
    • Undaunted
      • Trapping Webs: Fixed numerous visual issues with this ability and its morphs.

    Champion System
    • Reduced the Weapon and Spell Critical Chance granted from Perfect Strike and Spell Precision to 3% each, down from 9%.

    u52wc4xgcfde.png
    Consumables
    • Potions and Poisons that apply Minor Defile now properly mention they also affect Health Recovery in their tooltips.
    • Potions and Poisons that once applied Minor Fracture or Breach have been made into unique bonuses. These values remain at -1320 and -5280.
    • Activating a consumable or other quick slotted item will no longer cancel in-progress casts, and instead will now wait until after the cast is complete.

    Crafted Sets
    • Daedric Trickery:
      • The Major Buffs granted from this set now last 21 seconds, up from 16.
      • Reduced the cooldown of getting a Major Buff to 9 seconds, down from 20. This means if the Mad God favors you, you can have up to 3 Major Buffs active at once from this set, or if he is displeased, only 1. Will you be tempted by his honeyed words?
    • Hist Bark: This set’s 3-piece bonus is now Max Stamina, rather than Health Recovery.
    • Innate Axiom: Fixed an issue where this set’s bonus Weapon and Spell Damage did not apply to special activates from pets, such as Summon Familiar’s damage pulse.
    • Magnus’s Gift: Fixed an issue where this set’s visuals failed to apply when the set procced.
    • Night Mother’s Gaze: This set now applies Major Breach for 4 seconds, rather than Major Fracture for 6 seconds when you Critically Strike an enemy.
    • Noble’s Conquest:
      • This set now procs off any Bash, rather than interrupts.
      • The heal now heals for 9372 Health over 10 seconds, rather than 4300 instantly.
      • Added a 10 second cooldown to the heal.
    • Spectre’s Eye: Increased the duration and cooldown of Major Evasion granted from this set to 30 seconds, up from 5 and 10 respectively.
    • Unchained Aggressor:
      • Increased the duration of Major Berserk granted to 12 seconds, up from 6.
      • Reduced the cooldown to 14 seconds, down from 16.

    Dungeon & Arena Sets
    • Bani’s Torment:
      • Increased the duration of the beam to 15 seconds, up from 5.
      • Increased the cooldown to 15 seconds, up from 14.
    • Dro’zakar’s Claws: Fixed an issue where this set could fail to activate.
    • Durok’s Bane:
      • Increased the duration of Major Defile granted from this set to 5 seconds, up from 4.
      • Reduced the cooldown to 7 seconds, down from 8.
    • Draugr’s Rest: This set now has a friendly telegraph to denote its Area of Effect.
    • Hand of Mephala: Reduced the snare potency of this set to 33%, down from 50%.
    • Haven of Ursus:
      • Fixed numerous issues with the targeting for this set’s synergy. The shield granted will now always grant itself to the 6 lowest Health targets in a 28 meter radius of the synergizer, rather than the wearer of the set and 6 more.
      • Fixed an issue where the shield was not enhanced by the Harmony trait.
    • Healer’s Habit: This set now grants an additional 5% Healing Done when wearing 5 pieces.
    • Heem-Ja’s Retribution:
      • This set now also grants up to 129 Weapon Damage when wearing 5 pieces.
      • Increased the duration of Major Berserk on proc to 10 seconds, up from 5.
    • Ironblood: This set now grants a unique 30% damage reduction, rather than Major Protection.
    • Jailer’s Tenacity: Increased duration to 8 seconds, up from 5.
    • Knightmare:
      • This set now also grants up to 1206 Max Health when wearing 5 pieces.
      • The 4-piece bonus is now Armor instead of Weapon Damage.
      • Increased the duration of Minor Maim to 5 seconds, up from 2.
      • Added 3 second cooldown.
    • Scathing Mage: Fixed a few issues where some Direct Damage attacks that were bound to areas would fail to proc this set, such as Elemental Ring.
    • Sunderflame: Reduced the damage done to 12500 over 10 seconds, from 13600.

    Overland Sets
    • Champion of the Hist: Increased the Max Health this set grants on its 5-piece to 1600, up from 1206.
    • Grace of Gloom:
      • Reduced the cooldown of this set to 20 seconds, down from 25.
      • The heal from this set now heals for 2550 every 2 seconds, rather than 1096 every second. This should also significantly reduce the visual “rave-like” noise of the set.
    • Mad Tinkerer: Fixed an issue where this set’s tooltip still stated it had a cooldown, despite not having one.
