Summerset Patch Notes Part 2: Fixes & Improvements

ikez8hodiast.jpg

Welcome to The Elder Scrolls Online v4.0.5 and our next Chapter: Summerset! For the first time in history, the long-closed borders of Summerset are open to foreigners by decree of Queen Ayrenn. But darkness looms over the ancestral home of the High Elves, and whispers stir of Daedric followers organizing in the shadows.

In addition to an entirely new zone to explore, we’ve added the Psijic Order skill line. Should you join the order, you’ll gain access to five Active Abilities, five Passive Abilities, and a powerful Ultimate. Also available is the highly anticipated Jewelry Crafting system that will now allow you to craft, upgrade, research, and transmute Rings and Necklaces. With the addition of Jewelry Crafting, there are 9 Traits that can be applied to jewelry – 6 of which are all new! These Traits can be discovered and researched by acquiring jewelry found in various activities throughout the game. We can’t wait for you to try it out!

For a challenging group experience, you can gather your strongest allies to take on our newest 12-player Trial, Cloudrest, to face the Welkynar and their powerful gryphon companions. Similar to previous Trials, Cloudrest includes a Normal and Veteran version (the latter geared toward our more experienced players looking for a tougher challenge) for a chance to obtain unique item sets and rewards.

The base game brings a number of changes and improvements, too. First, you’ll find Battlegrounds are now available for all ESO players! We’ve also added a number of new Motifs, collectibles, and achievements, and have implemented a new Gifting system so you can send Crown Store items directly to your friends! And as always, you’ll find a number of bug fixes and improvements to existing systems and the game overall. Due to the high number of gameplay changes in this update, we’re temporarily reducing the respec cost to one gold until next week’s patch.

We look forward to having you play through our latest Chapter, which is approximately 12.5GB in size. Thank you, and enjoy your time in Summerset!

k6ppr33tmpr1.png
General

  • Refactored the implementation of a number of character passive abilities to improve server performance.
    We converted several requirements that were previously part of ability passives to server side encoded checks, which will cut down on the amount of requirements calculated per ability use. This will lead to better server performance, particularly in Cyrodiil, but does not change how passive abilities function for you.
  • Adjusted the draw distance around all Keeps in an effort to improve the client framerate.
  • Fixed an issue that would occasionally cause Keep pieces to appear invisible.
  • The guest assignment cooldown is now set to 60 seconds.
    Since the amount of campaigns have been reduced and we allow players to group and queue to join any campaign they want, we felt the lengthy guest campaign cooldown was not necessary. We are still looking at concerns regarding Alliance loyalty to Campaigns.
  • Removed some resources that incorrectly had Wall Regen in the Defense Upgrades, and moved the Enable Tower Regen from Rank 5 to Rank 1.
  • The listings for Alliance War and Imperial City now have full panel views in the Activity Finder.
  • You will no longer be dismounted while traversing various terrain or fixtures near Keeps.

Battlegrounds

  • Added new Battleground Camps to the cities of Daggerfall, Davon’s Watch, and Vulkhel Guard.
    • The Battlemaster and a cadre of merchants with a flair for the ferocious are now present in or just outside of the cities of Daggerfall (at a camp along the way to the docks), Davon’s Watch (outside of the city proper along the eastern road), and Vulkhel Guard (amidst the various merchants and dockworkers of the city).
    • You may turn in Battleground quests at any of these locations, regardless of your alliance.
  • The “Battleground King” achievement now requires you to control at least two Capture Points simultaneously in a Crazy King match. Previously, an error caused it to require simultaneous control of four points.
  • Fixed an issue where the visual effects from the Chaosball would be invisible when sprinting.
  • Chaosball in Arcane University now increments at 5 points instead of 15.
  • Updated the UI pins for the Pit Daemon and Storm Lord Relics in the Deeping Drome.
  • You will no longer be able to pull allies into the Pit Daemons spawn area in Arcane University.
  • Silver Leash can no longer be used in starter areas of Battlegrounds or respawn locations in Imperial City.

Keeps

  • Alliance Points earned from defending objectives no longer require you to wait in an objective for the tick (the distribution of Alliance Points after combat subsides). Instead, each type of objective will track whether you’ve earned credit towards a defense or offense tick.
    • Getting on the credit list is achieved by several actions that already occur in a keep siege, which include:
      • Assisting in killing other player characters within a Keep’s area that results in earning AP from that kill.
      • Healing and damaging Keep pieces within the area of a Keep.
      • Resurrecting a player character within a Keep’s area in which the player who was resurrected is located, rather than where the player doing the resurrection is standing.
      • Effective healing (non-self) within a Keep’s area of a player(s) in a battle that would have resulted in AP being granted from a kill. This includes cases where a player is worth 0 or reduced AP from a recent death, such as respawning at a Forward Camp.
      • If a credit is sourced between players that are both in areas associated with an objective, the AP awarded to the pool is split 50/50 between the two objectives.
    • Offensive (Capture) ticks still have a base value that will be granted regardless of being on the credit list, but any bonus AP earned by combat around and inside an objective will only be granted to players that are on the credit lists.
    • You can be on all credit lists for a single Keep Superstructure at the same time (Keep, Mine, Lumbermill and Farm). However, if you attack or defend a new structure (i.e. – a different mine) your credit for the prior structure will be removed.
      • Outposts, Towns and Imperial districts will all overwrite each other in terms of credit lists.
    • Entering a Delve in Cyrodiil wipes your credit from all lists.
    • If your character dies, you will not be cleared from a credit list, but logging out of the game will.
  • Increased the amount of Alliance Points you can earn from a Keep Defense with a multiplier based on the lowest ranking resource level of that Keep.
    • For example, Keeps that have higher ranks in food, ore and wood, will have a higher defense tick for that Keep.
    • For Resources and Outposts, there is a flat rate increase to the AP you can earn on the defense tick.
    • Districts do not have a modifier to defensive AP.
    • Remember, to earn Defensive AP, you must participate in the defense and not simply show up to watch the fight.
  • Added a new Keep Upgrade to more defensive siege weapons. The higher the keep levels are on wood, food and ore, the more siege weapons defenders can place.
    • Currently the defensive cap is 30 weapons playable on a fully upgraded Keep.
  • The main goal for these systems was to be more forgiving and allow more movement in the battlefield, without feeling like you have to magnetize yourself to a keep or resource after you’ve taken it over. It’s meant to reinforce clearing the area and moving to your next target without regret of loss.
  • Keep upgrades that spawn new structures will no longer cause invisible or missing fixtures when that Keep has more than 60 upgrades.
  • Made several changes to Keep and Resource Upgrades:
    • Moved the Honor Guard Ability upgrades to Food Rank 5.
    • Moved the Mage Guard Ability upgrades to Food Rank 2.
    • Towers now have health regeneration enabled on Defense Rank 5.
    • Updated the tooltip for Tower\Wall regeneration to properly indicate each upgrade of regeneration is 75% instead of 25%.

Quests

  • Added new daily quests with a new quest board. These quests include an old favorite such as “Kill 40 Enemy Players”, but also include “Capture Any 3 Keeps”, “Capture Any 9 Resources” and “Capture All 3 Towns”. The “any” quests are a new quest condition and you must capture unique structures meaning you can’t get credit by capturing Aleswell 3 times.
    • These quests will rarely grant costume pieces exclusive to Cyrodiil, plus other goodies such as sealed parcels containing crafting materials and treasure maps.
    • In this update, the costume reward includes the Arena Gladiator Helm (Hat).
    • The Arena Gladiator Helm can be acquired by combining 20 Arena Gladiator’s Proofs, available by completing Conquest Missions in Cyrodiil. These are then combined with an Arena Gladiator’s Recognition, available for purchase from War Researchers in Cyrodiil.
  • These new quests are meant to give a bit of direction and support actions players take in Cyrodiil that contribute to the war on a greater scale.
  • Aldmeri and Daggerfall quests boards in Cyrodiil now have the proper camera view when interacting with them.

Campaign Scoring

  • Drastically reduced the under-population and Underdog evaluation periods. This will result in alliances getting Underdog or under-population bonus scoring adjustments more frequently.
  • While under the benefit of Underdog or under-population, capturing and holding your native objectives will give a bonus towards Campaign Scoring.
  • Emperors associated with closed Campaigns will now find they are Former Emperors.
  • Holding an Elder Scroll is now worth 10 points in all campaigns.

Itemization

  • Adjusted the contents of Champion’s Caches that were obtained prior to Summerset, but which have not yet been opened. This does not impact any Champion’s Caches that will be obtained after the release of Summerset.

Monsters

  • Monsters and guards in CP-enabled campaigns have learned how to handle CP-enabled characters; they will be a bit more difficult to kill and will also hit a bit harder.
    • Imperial City remains untouched in this regard across all campaigns.
  • The Guard’s version of Eclipse will now properly grant CC immunity when Eclipse wears off.

Siege

  • Catapults now have their area damage persist in the world for 8 seconds after impact, resulting in better area denial.
    • For example, a meatbag catapult will leave an area of healing reduction and damage over time for 8 seconds, instead of just applying those effects on impact to players in the area.
  • Increased the Ballista damage versus Siege weapons by approximately 17%.
  • Reduced the Ballista damage versus players by 10%.
  • You can once again destroy siege weapons without being interrupted when getting hit by virtually anything.
    Ballista Damage versus players was higher than intended because the weapon’s main purpose is to attack and destroy other siege weapons. It was underperforming in that aspect, which is why the damage versus siege was increased.
  • Known Issue: Catapult projectiles that land on a destructible Keep piece will not currently apply their area effects. If a projectile lands on a non-destructible fixture or terrain, the area effect will apply. This issue will be fixed in the next incremental patch.

9crdksi74h60.png
General

  • Adjusted the textures from the Shadowrend, Molag Kena, and Ilambris Undaunted sets to work better with our dye system. We’ll plan to continue updating the remaining Undaunted sets in the future.

s4jgwgqoeldr.png
Justice System

  • Fixed an issue that could cause your character to be locked in place when accosted by a guard while in first person.
  • The denizens of Tamriel are now more likely to greet you with suspicion when you talk to them while you have a bounty. This is a cosmetic change, and does not impact any services they may provide.

    • They will not proc Explosion, Disintegration, Deep Freeze, Pestilence, or Venom due to Fire, Shock, Frost, Disease, or Poison attacks used against them.

f3kksz8fp6hm.png
General
