Welcome to The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited v188.8.131.52 and our third DLC game pack: Thieves Guild! We know you've been anxiously waiting to join this iconic guild, and have some great content in store for you.
Thieves Guild, similar to our previous updates, will come in two parts—the DLC game pack, and the base game patch. The base game patch will be available to everyone who owns The Elder Scrolls Online and the DLC game pack will automatically download with it, allowing you instant access to the new content when you purchase it, or activate an ESO Plus membership.
Anyone who owns ESO and has an active ESO Plus membership will also automatically have access to the Thieves Guild DLC game pack. If your ESO Plus membership ends or lapses, you will no longer have access to the Thieves Guild DLC game pack content and areas, but you will still have any items you earned while you had access. You will also keep any acquired skills from the Thieves Guild skill line up to the rank that you earned while you were in the Guild, even if you respec. If you do not have an active ESO Plus membership you can purchase the DLC game pack for 2,000 crowns via the in-game Crown Store.
Join the Thieves Guild of Abah's Landing to become the newest recruit in their organization of pickpockets, burglars, robbers, and thieves. Aside from hours of new story content, two new delves and group bosses, this update introduces a new Larceny System and various criminal activities. You'll also gain access to a new passive skill line exclusive to Thieves Guild members. If you're looking for a true challenge, visit our new 12-player Trial - the Maw of Lorkhaj - available in both Normal and Veteran versions where you can get powerful new gear.
The base game patch also features a plethora of new features including Scrolling Combat Text (SCT), new crafting motifs, a revamped Grouping Tool and a new Vitality Bonus system for Trials.
In addition to all the new features and major updates, we have made many fixes and improvements to the content in Orsinium, Cyrodiil and its campaigns, overall combat and gameplay, and more.
We hope you enjoy our latest update.

NEW FEATURES / UPDATES / BIG CHANGES
DLC Game Pack
Set in a desert peninsula called Hew's Bane, the Thieves Guild DLC game pack brings you to Hammerfell locations never before seen in an Elder Scrolls game. Abah's Landing, the opulent jewel of Hew's Bane, is not only one of the most elaborate cities in ESO, it's also home to the Thieves Guild. Be ever aware of your surroundings while in Abah's Landing—the network of back alleys, narrow catwalks, and secluded alcoves hide more than a few secrets.
The new Larceny System introduces a number of repeatable activities for those sneaky enough to complete the missions. These quests are acquired by visiting three mission boards found in or around the Thieves Den.
Larceny Quests: Kari, a precise Nord woman who keeps accounts of the guild's finances, as well as accounts of information and rumors runs the Tip Board. Travel all around Tamriel doing larceny quests for the Thieves Guild. These include pickpocketing, unlocking safeboxes, gathering specific categories of items for consignment requests, and more. Heist Quests: Find Fa'ren-dar, a tough male Khajiit who works on the far side of the Den, near the sewer drain exit. He runs the Heist Board. Thieves Guild heists require sneaking, avoiding traps, and getting in and out of special instanced heist areas with your prize—earn special bonuses for completing the heists undetected and within the time limit! Reacquisitions Quests: Seek out Spencer Rye, a fancy Breton man who runs the Reacquisitions Board, which is set up just outside the Thieves Den. Kill group bosses and complete delves in Hew's Bane.
New Criminal Activities
We're expanding on the existing Justice System, and adding a number of exciting, new activities to scratch your thieving itch:
Trespassing Certain locations in Abah's Landing are off-limits to adventurers where just being seen is considered a criminal act. These locations are accessible via clearly-labeled entrances that make it clear you will be trespassing. While doing so, the on-screen justice indicator will notify you of your illicit status. Guild Jobs The Thieves Guild may request certain types of items to be retrieved from their current owners. Stolen goods now indicate what categories they belong to, to help make sure you pilfer the desired valuables. Bounty Edicts Given the Thieves Guild has certain “connections," they may at times reward their members with documentation which conveniently erases past misdeeds (to a point). Hidden Panels The criminal element of Abah's Landing has a tendency to hide their possessions in plain sight. Sharp-eyed adventurers may discover secret stashes that blend in with their surroundings.
New Passive Skill Line: Thieves Guild
Access to the Thieves Guild DLC game pack will allow you to pursue a new associated skill line which includes six new passive abilities. These non-combat passive abilities will assist you in your criminal endeavors, and are unlocked as you gains ranks in the Thieves Guild.
Finders Keepers: Access new troves of stolen goods throughout Tamriel Clemency: Talk your way out of trouble Veil of Shadows: Reduce the range of your criminal acts being witnessed Timely Escape: Make a dramatic escape from the guards Swiftly Forgotten: You just have one of those faces that the guards tend to forget about faster than others Haggling: Get every coin you deserve for those stolen goods
Maw of Lorkhaj
An ancient Khajiiti shrine known as the Temple of Seven Riddles has been claimed by the dro-m'Athra—ancient, moon-hating spirits from the heart of the Great Darkness. The monks residing within the temple, led by Moon Bishop Kulan-dro, have all been corrupted and possessed. Now they lurk within the shadows of the Temple, preparing to spread their dark influence to the Khajiit of Elsweyr and beyond. Fearing the worst, the Moon Bishops have dispatched a group of Twilight Cantors to the scene. But even these powerful monks are no match for the evil within the temple. The order's leader, Chief Crier Adara'hai, asks for the player's help in banishing the dro-m'Athra and resealing the boundary between Mundus and the dark realm of Namiira.
Maw of Lorkhaj is a 12-player Trial located in the southwest section of Reaper's March. Maw of Lorkhaj features a Normal version in addition to a challenging Veteran version! To enter Maw of Lorkhaj, you have two options: Travel to Reaper's March and navigate toward the POI, south of Do'Krin Monastery. Speak to Bakhum, a Khajiit on the docks in Abah's Landing, to receive the quest The Dark Moon's Jaws. This will take you directly to Maw of Lorkhaj. There are unique sets available only within Maw of Lorkhaj which grant unique, group based, PvE bonuses. These are available in both Normal and Veteran versions. Maw of Lorkhaj will scale to the level of the Trial Leader, much like Dungeons do currently. When you start the Veteran version of the Trial at Veteran Rank 16, you will qualify for the Leaderboards. Points for Leaderboards are awarded in the same way as other trials (monster kills, vitality bonus and time). You can still run the Normal version of the Trial at Veteran Rank 16, but this will not qualify you for the Leaderboards.
New Collection Category: Assistants
Assistants are non-combat followers that you can summon via the Collection system, similar to pets, which provide various services. These benefits include (but are not limited to) selling and fencing items, as well as accessing the bank.
You may have an assistant or a pet summoned at any given time, but not both simultaneously. Rumor has it that adventurers may gain an assistant from supporting the Thieves Guild in its endeavors in Abah's Landing.
New and Updated Item Sets
We're introducing new item sets which will be available from a variety of sources:
3 new crafted item sets, available exclusively at the crafting stations in Abah's Landing. 2 new non-crafted item sets, available from Thieves Guild daily quests, the Grouping Tool reward boxes, or rarely from Thieves Guild world bosses. 3 older non-crafted sets, revamped and available from the new Treasure Troves. 4 new non-crafted sets, available from Maw of Lorkhaj as a drop, or from the weekly Trial leaderboards. 3 older non-crafted sets, revamped and available from Maw of Lorkhaj as a drop. 6 new Alliance War item sets, available from Rewards of the Worthy mails and Alliance War leaderboards, as well as the new Alliance War vendor.
Saving Progress in Veteran Maelstrom Arena
Your progress will now be saved between Veteran Maelstrom Arena sessions!
There is a new quest in Veteran Maelstrom Arena cleverly titled “Veteran Maelstrom Arena." This quest functions much the same way as the old quest, except both quests are now mutually exclusive. You earn progress toward the “Veteran Maelstrom Arena" quest in Veteran Maelstrom Arena, and progress toward “Maelstrom Arena" quest in normal Maelstrom Arena. You can have both quests at the same time, and be on different stages of progress in each one. If you progress to the Vault of Umbrage in Veteran Maelstrom Arena and log out, you will be placed in the Vault of Umbrage at the beginning of that Arena when you use the portal upon your return as long as you are still on that stage of the quest. If you want to start over from the beginning, simply abandon the quest and pick it up again. If you opt to continue your progress in Veteran Maelstrom Arena via the quest, you will no longer have a Leaderboard time when the Arena completes. We designed the Leaderboards to gauge and measure player characters that wish to do the most difficult content in the game, and time is a major factor in that measurement. As such, if you want to be on the Leaderboard, you need to complete the Arena all in one go.
DLC Quests from Collectibles
You will now be able to access an introductory quest for each DLC game pack via the Collection system! A new tab has been added to the Collection system for all DLC entries.
Anyone who owns the Orsinium or Thieves Guild DLC game packs, or is an ESO Plus member, will be granted a vanity pet as a loyalty reward!
The Orsinium reward is an Echalette vanity pet, and the Thieves Guild reward is a Jackal vanity pet. You'll need to complete a new achievement to receive your pet by simply walking into the main city for each DLC. Orsinium loyalty reward achievement: “A Gift from Orsinium" Thieves Guild loyalty reward achievement: “Spoils of Abah's Landing" The pet will be added to your Collections UI, and will be usable account-wide. Going forward, each DLC game pack will include some sort of reward for those that purchase or have access to it.
Base Game Patch
Grouping Tool Improvements
The Grouping Tool has undergone additional improvements for this update:
We completely updated and restructured the UI. You'll find that this tool has been broken up into three sections: Regular grouping, the Dungeon Finder, and the Alliance War. You can now form cross-alliance parties to complete dungeons or Trials by simply inviting your friends to your group without using the Grouping Tool first. Note: You won't be able to do this while in Cyrodiil or Imperial City, and won't see your cross-alliance group members outside of 4-player dungeons or Trials. You can now queue for more than one individual dungeon at a time. Queuing and completing a random dungeon now awards bonus experience and items. Your first completion of the day will grant a fairly sizeable chunk of experience. You also receive a blue item from the two new sets mentioned in the item set section above. Subsequent runs give slightly less experience, and a green item from the same sets as previously. You also have a chance to get a style item (or style item fragment) from one of the rare styles. This is part of an ongoing process to continue improving the Grouping Tool – look for additional improvements in future updates!
Scrolling Combat Text (SCT)
Options for displaying combat text have been added to the Interface section of the Settings menu.
This will display damage values, healing values, and crowd control effects on your targets. This option is turned off by default.
Soul Reservoir and Vitality Bonus
We have removed the old Soul Reservoir system, and replaced with the Vitality Bonus.
Vitality Bonus is a new feature added to Trials (Hel Ra Citadel, Aetherian Archive, Sanctum Ophidia and the new Maw of Lorkhaj) which tracks player character deaths, and awards points based on remaining lives. Each Trial will have a maximum number of lives specific to the Trial, and each life will be worth 1,000 points. At the end of the Trial, the remaining lives are multiplied by those points and then added to the score. The score is then multiplied by the Time Modifier, and your final score will be displayed with some additional supporting information. What this means is that once again, deaths within the Trial matter more than just time. Each life lost will diminish your final score. You will be able to view your score and remaining lives towards the Vitality Bonus on the HUD while in a Trial or Arena.
We have a number of exciting additions and changes in Cyrodiil!
Azura's Star and all non-Veteran campaigns will now limit the Champion System. While in these campaigns, you will not be able to spend Champion Points when they are earned until you leave Cyrodiil, and all Champion abilities will be inactive. Note that Champion Experience can still earned while in these campaigns. The Thornblade campaign will be closing on the Xbox One European megaserver. If this is your currently-assigned campaign, you will receive a free campaign reassignment, and will also receive rewards based on the state of the campaign score and leaderboards at the time of shutdown. A new rare items merchant, Adhazabi Aba-daro the Golden, is now available! Adhazabi will now only appear on the weekends. She will arrive at 00:00 UTC/GMT on Friday nights, and will pack up shop at 12:00 UTC/GMT on Mondays. This vendor will sell powerful item sets not normally obtainable in Cyrodiil for a high amount of AP or gold. You'll be able to find Adhazabi in the following locations: Western Elsweyr Gate Northern Highrock Gate Southern Morrowind Gate Forward Camps, an item that allows you to respawn anywhere without relying on Keep ownership or respawning at your home base, are now available to use: You may only respawn within a Forward Camp radius if you die within it. There is a global respawn time of 2 minutes when you respawn at a Forward Camp, which will limit you from respawning at another Forward Camp while within the cooldown period. Forward Camps are purchasable from Siege merchants for 20,000 AP. You must be Alliance Rank 6 or higher to purchase or deploy a Forward Camp. Any ally from your alliance will be able to use a Forward Camp once deployed. We've made some updates to the items you receive from the Rewards of the Worthy. Below are the only sets that will be available from Rewards for the Worthy: Vicious Death Transmutation Marksman's Crest Leki's Focus Fasalla's Guile Warrior's Fury We have increased the drop rate so you are guaranteed to receive a piece from one of these item sets each time, rather than only having a small chance to receive a piece from a large pool of possibilities. You will still be able to obtain the previously-available item sets from the Alliance vendors, and we are currently evaluating plans to alter their wares in the future (both to change the exact sets they offer, and to bring their wares up to VR16). Moving forward, we will regularly cycle out older item sets from Rewards of the Worthy so you are given a greater opportunity to acquire the newest item sets, and older item sets will be purchasable from the Alliance vendors.
Champion System Improvements
The Champion System abilities have undergone significant revision to improve the viability and balance of each star, which you can read about in more detail under the Fixes & Improvements section.
The Warrior (red) and The Mage (blue) tree abilities are now closely matched to counterbalance the defensive and offensive bonuses. Infrequently selected abilities have been improved and consolidated for better Champion System build diversity. Many abilities have had their tooltips and effects clearly outlined so that bonuses are easier to understand.
Cadwell's Silver and Gold Updates
Silver and Gold alliances are no longer restricted by accepting and completing Cadwell's quests, and will instead immediately unlock when you reach Veteran Rank 1.
Upon the initial unlock, the first zone's wayshrines will be displayed on the map for you to fast travel to. You can also jump directly to other player characters in those alliances. Silver and Gold content is also immediately unlocked for anyone who accepts Cadwell's quest before reaching VR1. When accepting Cadwell's Silver and Gold, your quest progress will be immediately updated for anyone who has already completed some or all of the objectives required for those quests (i.e. if you complete content in the Silver and Gold zones before taking Cadwell's quests, you don't have to play that content again). Completing Cadwell's Silver will grant you the Soul-Shriven Style Motif book; completing Cadwell's Gold will grant you a unique Collectible from Sir Cadwell himself. For those who've already completed these quests, you will automatically receive the rewards. Every player character who has completed Cadwell's Silver will receive a Soul-Shriven Motif in the mail, and anyone who has completed Cadwell's Gold will receive the Collectible directly to their Collections UI.
New Crafting Motifs
This update introduces a host of new crafting motifs to learn:
Outlaw: Found in the delves and world bosses of Hew's Bane from the Thieves Guild DLC game pack Trinimac: Received from Orsinium Daily Delve quests Malacath: Received from Orsinium Daily World Boss quests Alliance Motifs: Found in chests within Cyrodiil and Imperial City Soul-Shriven: Received from completing the Cadwell's Silver quest (anyone who has already completed this quest will receive this style) Those who complete Cadwell's Gold will receive a special item that you can perhaps wear on your head…
Crown Mimic Stone
The Crown store now offers a new type of style item that can be used to make equipment in any crafting motif the crafter has learned.
To utilize these magical items after purchase, simply set the interface to use the Crown Mimic Stone at any clothier, blacksmith or woodworking station and create a piece of equipment. The Crown Mimic Stone permanently transmutes itself upon being integrated into an item, which means deconstruction can yield the specific style item associated with the equipment but will never return the Crown Mimic Stone itself. The introduction of this item allows us to update the Malachite, Laurel and Goldscale style items to be fully tradeable, akin to all other style items. The Crown Store will offer Crown Mimic Stones in various quantities, and the purchase of any high-end motif will include complementary Crown Mimic Stones as well.
New Collection Category: Mementos
All activated public dungeon reward items which previously took up inventory space are being relocated into the Collections System!
If you've deleted any of these items to make room, they will automatically be unlocked in your Collections UI based on your completion of the associated quests. You will need to log in on at least one character that has completed the associated quest in order to have the associated memento unlocked in the Collection System. The affected items include the following:
- Almalexia's Lantern
- Battered Bear Trap
- Blackfeather Court Whistle
- Bonesnap Binding Stone
- Discourse Amaranthine
- Fetish of Anger
- Finvir's Trinket
- Glanir's Smoke Bomb
- Justal's Falcon
- Lena's Wand of Finding
- Lodorr's Crown
- Malacath's Wrathful Flame
- Mezha-dro's Sealing Amulet
- Nanwen's Sword
- Nirnroot Wine
- Questionable Meat Sack
- Rkindaleft's Hidden Pressure Vent
- Sanguine's Goblet
- Token of Root Sunder
- Yokudan Totem
Vendors now sell recipes used in Provisioning Writs, which will ensure provisioners are able to reasonably complete any Provisioning Writ received.
Food recipes will appear on Chefs, while drink recipes show up on Brewers. The recipes offered are based on your current level of Recipe Improvement, though they also will offer recipes from the previous rank as well. Provisioning Writs will no longer reward these recipes. Completing the certification quest for Provisioning will directly provide the recipes needed for the first tier of writs to ensure novice provisioners can immediately undertake the quests.
FIXES & IMPROVEMENTS, IMPERIAL CITY DLC GAME PACK
Improved the audio performance in Imperial City so audio will use less CPU time.

Flesh Colossus Adjusted the timing for the Stumble Forward ability to make it more accurate. Taebod the Gatekeeper It is no longer possible to interrupt the Summon Winged Twilight ability. Xivkyn Elite Winter's Reach no longer displays an interrupt tutorial, as the attack cannot be interrupted.
Dungeons & Group Content
Imperial City Prison Ibomez the Flesh Sculptor Blight Bomb can now be dodged or reflected. Note that reflecting the projectile back to the boss will do reduced damage. The initial damage from the impact of Blight Bomb can now be mitigated by blocking. Inmates will now only appear when The Flesh Sculptor runs to the center and channels his summoning spell. The Flesh Sculptor is now completely immune to damage while channeling the summon spell. Removed the 45 second cooldown on The Flesh Sculptor's summoning spell. The summoning spell is now performed exactly 3 times during the encounter, and is triggered by specific health values remaining on The Flesh Sculptor. The total amount of inmates eager to be used in The Flesh Sculptor's stew has not changed, so expect to see a few more inmates being summoned when the time comes. White-Gold Tower You can no longer remove Molag Kena's Shock Spear by using the Spear Shards Synergy near it. Fixed a typo with the dialogue of Sister Arminus. Otho, Micella and Cordius no longer have the ability to critically hit player characters.

Relocated the Xivkyn Style Master achievement from the Crafting category to the Imperial City DLC category, to be consistent with the location of other achievements introduced in DLC content. Itemization
Non-VR16 player characters can no longer purchase items from the Greater Tel Var Lockbox vendor as they couldn't be opened until reaching VR16. You may still securely store your Tel Var stones in the bank, if you'd prefer to stockpile them for the day you reach Veteran Rank 16! Clarified the tooltip for the Necrotic Hoarvor in the Collections menu, to point you to the correct section of the Achievements menu for the Achievement that grants it.
Quests & Zones

Map markers to interact or collect tasks for world boss daily quests no longer disappear if another group member completes that task.
Crafting & Economy
Fixed an issue where some blacksmithing and alchemy writs in Orsinium would incorrectly direct you to Craglorn to turn them in.

Exploration & Itemization
All Wrothgar books now display appropriate icons and glows. The Orsinium Archive and Wrothgar Writings categories now have appropriate icons in the Lore Library. Fixed an issue where a previous fix had resulted in a sudden spawning frenzy in all of Wrothgar's waters, leading to some of you being able to catch multiple fish per cast. The season has turned and fish are now back to normal. Achievements
Wrothgar Cliff Jumper: Fixed an issue that was allowing you to obtain this achievement without actually leaping from the cliff. Wrothgar Relic Hunter: The name of this achievement now appears correctly in the requirements for the “Hero of Wrothgar" achievement. Itemization
Fixed an issue where the Maelstrom Arena's Destruction Staff would not reliably increase the damage of Light and Heavy Attacks against targets in the Wall of Elements.
Quests & Zones
Implemented a fix for an issue which was causing quest NPCs in Skalar's Hostel to be invisible until you logged out and back into the game. As a matter of civic pride, the Horker Docks have been renamed to Jehenna Docks. Wrothgar is now listed in the Locations menu in the map. Player characters outside of Wrothgar will no longer be directed through Wrothgar unless the quest is in that zone. The dog running through Orsinium has gotten better at chasing the cat. Still can't catch the dang thing, though. You will no longer be able to use your mount in Rime Hammer Forge. Created a new map icon for the House of Orsimer Glories. Quests
A Cold Wind from the Mountain: You will no longer be able to climb out of Coldwind's Den. Fixed an issue where the UI displayed the wrong name when first entering Coldwind's Tomb.

Burning the saplings will no longer spam your chat box with their screams of pain. The Briarheart Tree no longer takes damage from fire when there are no living player characters present. Guess this answers the question if a tree is on fire in a forest and no one is around, does it still burn? Fixed an issue where abandoning the quest prevented the opening scene from playing. Compass markers in Frostbreak Fortress no longer disappear when you stand by the entrance door. Improved the messaging on the tasks leading up to the quest event with the Briarheart Tree. Invitation to Orsinium: Stuga will now move much more gracefully, like a grazing gazelle wandering the prairie in peace.

FIXES & IMPROVEMENTS, BASE GAME PATCH
Guards at Scroll Temple Gates have been redeployed and placed on the ground. Honor guards, archers and footmen have also joined the Mages and Menders at those locations. Wall repair kits will now repair 5,000 damage per repair. Note that the cost will remain the same. Players that are Alliance Rank 50 will now properly receive Rewards for the Worthy. Fixed an issue where obtaining the Alliance War bonuses (Home Keep, Enemy Keep, Scroll, or Emperor) would force you to dismount. The tutorial for Battlefield Repairs will now correctly appear when you first acquire a Siege Repair Kit. Scoring for the Haderus campaign will now calculate every 30 minutes, rather than every 60 minutes. Removed the alliance restrictions for campaign reassignments; you may now have characters from any alliance assigned to the same campaign. Added some collision to fully-upgraded Keeps to prevent player characters from deliberately gaining entrance through unintended means. Enemy player characters that enter “Home Base" locations in Cyrodiil will now be killed immediately. Alliance Points
Doubled the amount of Alliance Points a player character is worth. There is now a cap on Alliance Point bonuses per player in group to a maximum of 50%. Keep Upgrades
Removed the upkeep costs on levels 4 and 5 of Keeps. The resources required per level of Keep upgrade has been flattened, resulting in faster Keep upgrade periods. Increased the Keep wall health upgrades to 35,000 HP per level from 25,000 HP per level. Increased the Keep wall regeneration to tick a health regen every 10 seconds from 20 seconds. Siege Weapons
Increased the damage for all siege weapons by approximately 30%. All side effects from siege weapons (including snare, disease, healing taken reduction, increased siege damage taken) have been normalized to a duration of 6 seconds. Decreased the snare received from Ice Trebuchets, Lightning Ballista and Oil Catapults to 50% from 75%. Increased the siege damage taken debuff from Scattershots to 20% from 10%. Meatbags will now apply a 50% health regen and healing taken debuff. Oil Catapults now include a "Stamina Damage" value added, which takes away roughly 20% Stamina from enemy targets. Lightning Ballistae now include a "Magicka Damage" value added, which takes away roughly 10% Magicka damage per tick from enemy targets. Ballistae will now turn faster and have their "scatter" variable removed, making them 100% accurate to your aimed location.
Art & Animation
Fixed an issue that was causing awkward animations when returning to a combat idle after casting certain abilities. Fixed an issue where you were animating as if riding a Senche while on a bear.

Combat & Gameplay
Adjusted the snare applied to the enemy target at the beginning of all charge/teleport abilities (such as Shield Charge, Critical Charge, or Teleport Strike) to be a 60% snare for 750 milliseconds from a 100% snare for 500 milliseconds. Added the charge snare noted above to Dragon Leap and its morphs. The snare remains unpurgable, and serves to help charge abilities hit moving targets more reliably without completing locking movement down. Adjusted all abilities to only allow them to be reflected up to 1 time, previously up to 2 times. The damage over time effects from abilities such as Searing Strike, Twin Slashes, or Destructive Touch can now be applied to targets that fully or partially absorb the damage from a damage shield, or targets that are blocking. Abilities that heal based on their damage done (Strife, Puncturing Sweeps, Surge, etc.) will now properly calculate their heal values when the damage is fully or partially absorbed. The damage over time effects from bleed abilities such as Cleave, Twin Slashes, Twin Blade or Blunt Axes can now be applied to any monster, even ones formerly immune to bleeds. A unique visual effect will display for each formerly bleed-immune creature. The damage over time effects from bleed abilities now all share a unique icon. Bleed damage will continue to bypass the target's mitigation. Reduced the healing from the Major Mending buff category to 25% from 30% to match the Major Berserk buff category. Reduced the bonus movement speed from the Major Expedition buff category to 30% from 40%. Increased the bonus movement speed from Sprint to 40% from 30%. Fixed an issue where channeled attacks (such as Radiant Destruction), Restoration and Lightning Staff Heavy Attacks could be avoided by dodge rolling. Channeled attacks cannot be dodged. Fixed an issue where charge abilities could still damage enemies at vastly different high elevations. Fixed numerous ability tooltips for grammar, spelling, and formatting. Any significant tooltip revisions will be called out specifically below. Fixed numerous issues with abilities displacing incorrect or placeholder icons in your Active Effects UI or with the buff trackers of various player-made addons. Fixed an issue where the weapon visual effects from abilities such as Grim Focus, Siphoning Strikes, and Expert Hunter could get visually detached from the weapon. Fixed an issue where damage over time effects were not recalculating their strength if they were recast on the same target before they expired. For example, casting Cleave on a target, then casting Momentum, then casting Cleave again will now cause Cleave's damage over time to be higher due to you gaining the Major Brutality buff. Fixed an issue where Stamina Recovery in the character UI would appear as 0 if you dodge rolled and then immediately attempt to crouch. Fixed an issue where it was possible to recover Stamina while using sprint or crouch. Fixed an issue where the Death Recap hints for low-level jewelry would tell you to obtain a higher-level jewelry piece via crafting. Revealing an enemy from stealth or invisibility with abilities such as Revealing Flare or Magelight now prevents that enemy from casting stealth or invisibility for the duration, rather than letting them re-enter stealth or invisibility but still be visible. Fixed an issue where the knockbacks from abilities such as Meteor or Dragon Leap could cause you to take excessive fall damage. Fixed an issue where the Battle Spirit buff that gets applied to you in Cyrodiil, Imperial City, or the Imperial City Sewers did not show an icon in your Active Effects window, or in the buff trackers of various player-made addons. Fixed an issue where the range increase bonus from Battle Spirit did not allow you to move and use channeling abilities at the increased ranges. Fixed an issue where using Weapon Swap while channeling an ability would cause you to be unable to sheathe your weapons, or interact with doors and objects. Summoned pets will now enter stealth whenever their caster enters stealth. Abilities which give bonuses to resurrection speed now stack multiplicatively, rather than additively. This will result in slower resurrection cast speeds when stacking multiple bonuses. Fixed an issue where tapping Sprint and then immediately dodge rolling would not charge you Stamina for the dodge roll. Fixed an issue where taunt abilities were not taunting the target monster if you were silenced. Fixed an issue that was preventing you from mounting while standing near an unlooted corpse. Fixed an issue where the Crouch stealth eye would continually close and reopen whenever an enemy was in range to detect you. Fixed an issue where you were able to fire an Ultimate ability multiple times. Summoned pets are now dismissed by removing the buff from your Active Effects window, or swapping ability bars. Fixed an issue where you were unable to attack if you sheathed your weapon after casting a charge or leap ability, including: Shield Charge Critical Charge Dragon Leap Teleport Strike Dragonknight

Note: The Flames of Oblivion morph will continue to grant the Weapon Critical Strike rating while slotted as a morph effect. Sea of Flames (Inferno morph): This morph has been renamed to Cauterize, and will now summon an Aura of Cauterizing Flames, launching a fireball at an ally to heal them instead of an enemy to damage them.

Note: The Igneous Shield morph will continue to grant you the Major Mending buff as a morph effect. Stonefist: Increased the range of this ability and its morphs to 28 meters from 20 meters. In addition, this ability and its morphs now deal Magic Damage, instead of Physical Damage. Nightblade
Assassination Lotus Fan (Teleport Strike morph): Significantly revised the tooltip of this morph to indicate that only the primary target is snared, and the damage over time is applied to the primary target and all nearby enemies. The damage over time from this morph is no longer considered a bleed, and is now a standard magical damage over time.

Long words that do not fit in the ingredients boxes in the Provisioner menu will now be truncated instead of wrapping to the next line. While crafting, you will now see the number of provisioning items currently in your inventory and bank space. Crown Store
Fixed an issue where the Crown Store would not properly update when an item was added or removed from a category after you had opened the Crown Store. When viewing a bundled item in the Crown Store, items will now be displayed left to right, top to bottom in alphabetical order. The Crown Store will now be hidden during a purchase confirmation. Added a new texture on the scroll bar. The Crown Store will now always exit stage left when backing out of it. Gameplay
Fixed an issue where group members and their pins could disappear after using a door with a loading screen. Removed the option to turn off the Magelight graphics settings with the recent changes made to the ability. Fixed an issue in the Champion System UI where some of the trigger icons would overlap with each other in the French game client. Rapidly assigning abilities in the Skills menu will no longer break this function. Kicking a group member no longer leaves that group member selected in the list. Fixed an issue where the combination button actions were not properly activating the Ultimate ability. Rapidly assigning abilities from the Skills menu will no longer break ability assignments and prevent you from assigning more skills. Grouping Tool
A reason will now be displayed when you cannot queue for a particular activity. Assigned roles are now displayed next to group frames while using the Dungeon Finder. Fixed an issue where you were unable to join the queue for an Alliance War group in certain cases. Updated the in-game help menu to better reflect the improved functionality of the Grouping Tool. Fixed an issue where the Dungeon Finder status would incorrectly change to “Not Queued" after going to a new zone. Guild Functionality
The name of the guild will now appear in the bottom-right corner when using a Guild Store or purchasing a Guild Trader. Only members with proper Guild Trader permissions will now have the ability to view guild history events relating to guild kiosk bid refunds and purchases. You will now receive a warning when rapidly promoting or demoting guild members. Fixed an issue where the "Start Search" keybind in a Guild Store would not properly update after searching for a Guild Item. You will now be able to invite other player characters to join your guild from any social list. Fixed an issue where you could attempt to buy your own listings from a Guild Trader, which would generate a “Could not find specified item" error message. Justice System
If you have reached the daily launder or fence limit for stolen goods, you will now see a timer on the fence screen that indicates when your limit will reset. Loot History
Experience gains will now be displayed via the Loot History UI. Cumulative gains for experience points, Alliance Points, Tel Var Stones, and gold will now update as a single entry rather than split into several entries. Maps
You will no longer be able to interact with fast travel icons on the map while you are dead. Fixed an issue so the map header label will now properly resize with longer names.
