Elder Scrolls Online Patch Notes Prepare For Greymoor

A set of patches have gone live for Elder Scrolls Online on PC, PS4, and Xbox One, offering various bug fixes and adjustments.

Comments

The Elder Scrolls Online is preparing to close the book on its Skyrim story as it transitions into the Greymoor season. The new content isn't live yet, but the prologue chapter is now available alongside a patch on PC, PS4, and Xbox One.

The patch notes across all three platforms make some of the same changes, especially across the two console platforms. On PC the patch has fixes for some abilities and a game crash, but the notes say the developers are still investigating ability desyncs and lag. On PS4 and Xbox One, there are input delay and desync fixes, and a fix to the Coldharbour questline.

A free prologue chapter for Greymoore is now available in advance of the story's launch. Paired with a limited time free-play period, you can dip a toe in the new content. Parent company Bethesda also recently announced that it is canceling the digital showcase that it had planned to give in absence of its E3 appearance.

Check out the full list of patch notes below.

PC/Mac Patch Notes v5.3.8

The Elder Scrolls Online v5.3.8 has some fixes for the Undo and Burning Embers abilities, the Stone Keeper fight in Frostvault, a game crash, and a couple other smaller bug fixes. Investigations are still ongoing for the ability desyncs and lag, as mentioned in last week’s performance update. The size of this patch is approximately 61MB.

    • Undo:
      • Fixed an issue where this ability could fail to properly animate your character as you rewound through time.
      • Fixed an issue where this ability could fail to rewind time.
        • Note: This fix may cause strange animation issues when using this Ultimate while standing completely still for 4 or more seconds, where your character does not get rewound in position. This particular issue will be fixed in a future patch as fixing the functionality was prioritized.

Battlegrounds

  • Fixed a small location in Mor Khazgur where your character would not die from falling as intended.

General

  • Fixed an issue that could, under rare circumstances, cause Murkmire Strongboxes to be awarded from Senchal Reward Chests.

PlayStation 4 Patch Notes v2.02

The Elder Scrolls Online v2.02 includes some adjustments to help with the recent input delays and desyncs while in combat, in addition to a fix where breaking free could become delayed, spamming block disconnecting you to the login screen, and several crash fixes. Also included is a fix for the Soul Shriven in Coldharbour questline, some invisible collision found in Morkul Stronghold, and more.

Dungeons

  • Icereach
    • The Brush Fire achievement can now be completed.
    • You will now only be able to revive in situations normally allowed in Icereach.
    • Fixed an issue where some quest story elements would appear to become stuck if all players were to leave the scene and then return.

Arenas

  • Blackrose Prison
    • Drakeeh the Unchained is no longer partaking in Murkmire health concoctions and as such, his health has returned to normal levels.

Quests

  • Empty Nest: Fixed a number of issues in which Krona and Ree-Nakal could get stuck while spawning for the final boss fight.

General

  • Fixed an issue causing invisible collision and floating NPCs in Morkul Stronghold.
  • Adjusted the collision in Orc Long Houses to allow your character to move about them once more.

Quests

  • The Crystal Tower: The Golden Knight will once again follow you properly during the final parts of the quest.

General

  • In an effort to address recent input delays and desyncs when casting abilities, we have optimized how messages (how the server/client communicate with each other) are sent.
  • Fixed an issue where breaking free could become delayed for about a second in some situations.
  • Repeatedly activating and dropping Block will no longer kick you from the server, returning you to the login screen.
  • Fixed an issue where interacting with an objective, such as a Chaos Ball or Volendrung, could prevent you from activating Block or Sprint.
  • Fixed an issue where your client would report your Stamina Recovery as 0 after activating Sprint or Mount Sprint in some situations.

Nightblade

  • Assassination
    • Incapacitating Strike: This Ultimate no longer silences the target, but instead stuns them for 3 seconds if cast with 120 or more Ultimate. This change was primarily done to fix an issue where the unique silence applied from this ability conflicted with some recent hard-coded block behaviors.

  • Aedric Spear
    • Piercing Spear: Fixed an issue where this passive did not work against blocking targets.

General

  • Robes and boots from the Pyandorean Motif no longer appear invisible when worn.
