    Affected characters:
    Nikolaj Suvorov, (Nightblade, Ebonheart Pact) 1 skill point from Werewolf Transformation morph
    Severan Aurilius, (Necromancer, Daggerfall Covenant) 1 skill point from Soul Trap morph
    PC NA

    Details: Lost only 1 skill point each, as I found out about the bug immediately and did not re-morph either of the abilities. When I logged out before 6.2.6 I had 0 skill points available/unspent on both characters, the same when I logged back in after the patch was complete. Neither ability was re-morphed either, ergo I was not refunded on either character.

    I know it isn't a huge deal since it was only 1 point on each character and I know a lot of people lost a lot more, but every point still counts, especially on one of the characters I use as my crafter.

    Additionally, and I'm not sure if this is connected or not, but on Nikolaj (Werewolf character), ever since Markarth dropped, whenever I use the Shrine to reset all my skill points, I notice that I still have the option "Skills: Make a donation [50 g]" for 50 gold, but selecting it and attempting to clear all skill lines does nothing. Note this is only on Nikolaj, I used the shrine to reset all skill lines on Severan and one of my other characters and it worked normally. I can only assume it's connected to the Werewolf skill tree, then, since only Nikolaj is a Werewolf. Bringing this up because I'm wondering if it has something to do with the missing skill point or Werewolf being "Broken". (And also just because it's kinda annoying, though I know it isn't as big a deal.)

    How would I check to see if my Soul Trap skillpoints were refunded? I did not think to take a screenshot before the patch.
    Please swap Rapids with Siege Shield and everyone will be happy!

    ESO staff specifically said it would be.

    "If you have lost any skill points, they will automatically be returned to your account during the maintenance for patch v5.2.6, currently scheduled for Nov 16"


    Now the problem here is that ZOS have yet again not said anything useful or updated their status, or maintained any status page properly so the community has no idea
    - If it fixed most people but not all
    - If they had to push it forward to 6.2.7
    - If they just got it wrong again and didn't test anything properly - again

    I guess everyone has to open a ticket until ZOS can give some kind of sensible answer as to what went wrong this time.

    @Tommy_The_Gun There are even client side addons that can work out what skill points you should have (eg Urich's Skill Point Finder) so I agree entirely this is not rocket science

    You don’t seem to have understood what I or ZOS have said.

    I said that the skill points themselves needed to be restored, which is what ZOS also said. I said that in the part of my original post that you conveniently omitted.

    In the part of my post that you did quote, I said that I did not expect skill progress (i.e. experience in that skill) to be restored, and ZOS did not mention restoring that at all. You quoted them speaking of skill points, not skill progress.

    Calculating skill points owed is surely much less work than calculating xp in a skill line from before the update. Unless they already have those numbers and a script handy in case they break things like this.

    I did not take any screenshots either, but I do know that I was at 0 available/unspent skill points on both affected characters before and after the patch, where I should have gained 1 unspent skill point on each character after the patch. I've since reset all my skill points and took a screenshot of both character's skill points screen.

    I am so glad I took SS. When they reported WW bug and ZoS ignored it I took that screen shot before patch day. Then after with missing skill and point. Sucks too. Issue was reported but they went with patch anyways :(.

    If you are on PC you can use SpentSkillPoints and Urich's Skill Point Finder addons to calculate how many skill points did you use and compare it with how many of free skill points do you have. It's the easiest way afaik.

    3 werewolves affected: Ate a skill point, reset to 0 xp for werewolf transformation, no refunds, no respec messages, no xp returned, very disappointing.

    Character names:

    Grr'Argh

    Aud

    Joaquin al'Ashabah

    This has been super inconvenient and the timing having my 3 werewolves down is terrible, affecting my play in multiple areas of the game. So far it has been 2 weeks out of my subscription; this incident and the process moving forward will have an effect on my decision making when/if I resub.

    Hi everyone, we're working on tracking what happened with this. To be clear, the fix only prevented from the skill from resetting and wouldn't have re-morphed your previously morphed skill.

    As far as the missing skill point issue, if you are still missing skill points, please let us know your affected character, UserID, and if you play on NA or EU to aid in our investigation. Thank you!

    If i remember right i lost 3 or 4 skill points, as i did it 2 times on WW ulti and one more or 2 too
    on soul trap.

    But now i have the skills ready to morph them, but i had morph them, so missing 2 more skill points,
    or i am wrong? Cause if i use 2 skills for the morphs which i had them i won't lost only the 3-4 when
    i try to morph them on the bug duration, i will have lost 5-6 skills. So, i need the 2 point skills if you don't
    give us back the skills with the morph as i had them and the other 3-4 from the bug.

    Are we supposed to just accept that the progress for the affected skill lines are >poof< gone?

    I will not exactly enjoy leveling up Soul Trap again from scratch for several characters. Yes, it's quick enough to level the base skill to the morph point, and it's not absolutely essential for my enjoyment of the game to have the morph at max rank, but it's going to take quite some time to get it back to where it was before it was just randomly reset.

    I do not appreciate being randomly robbed of character progress.
