OVERVIEWEdit

Welcome to The Elder Scrolls Online v2.5.5 and the Shadows of the Hist DLC Game Pack!

  • Similar to previous ones, this update comes 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 Shadows of the Hist DLC Game Pack and the ability to freely dye your costumes. If your ESO Plus membership ends or lapses, you will no longer have access to the DLC Game Pack content and areas, but you will still have any items you earned while you had access. Any dyed costumes will retain their applied dyes as well.
  • If you do not have an active ESO Plus membership, you can purchase Shadows of the Hist for 1,500 crowns via the in-game Crown Store.
  • In this update, you'll be able to conquer two all-new 4 player dungeons – the Cradle of Shadows and Ruins of Mazzatun. These dungeons offer new item sets, skins, Monster Masks and achievements!
  • The base game patch features a number of exciting new features including character re-customization through the new Style Parlor, the town capture system in Cyrodiil, improvements to existing Trials, and more. In addition, we've made several adjustments to the racial passives, and also increased the Champion Point cap to 531. You'll also find we've made several fixes and improvements to existing content as well.
  • We hope you have fun with our latest update, which is approximately 4.6GB in size. Enjoy!

NEW FEATURES / UPDATES / BIG CHANGESEdit

DLC Game PackEdit

Two New Dungeons Grab three friends and prepare to take on the Cradle of Shadows and Ruins of Mazzatun, two all-new Argonian-themed dungeons found in Shadowfen that make up the Shadows of the Hist DLC Game Pack. These dungeons scale to the group leader's level, just like every other dungeon in ESO, and offer a Normal and Veteran mode and new item sets to collect. Here are a few details about each:

Cradle of ShadowsEdit

The Argonians of the Dark Brotherhood need your help against a cadre of rogue assassins who threaten to hurl all of Black Marsh into bloody chaos. Fight your way into the Cradle of Shadows to uncloak the secrets of the twisted Silken Ring! The Cradle of Shadows dungeon features three new item sets, challenging new achievements with an appearance reward, and a new monster mask set.

Ruins of MazzatunEdit

Venture into Mazzatun, the "Puzzle City" of the Xit-Xaht tribe of Argonians, who have been forcing other Lizardfolk to work as slave labor on a project that has driven their masters … mad! Can you free them in time? The Ruins of Mazzatun dungeon features three new item sets, challenging new achievements with an appearance reward, and a new monster mask set.

New Monster MasksEdit

  • Two new Monster Mask sets are being introduced in Update 11—both are attainable in the new Shadows of the Hist dungeons.
  • The headpieces for Mighty Chudan's Monster Mask set can be obtained by defeating the final boss of the Ruins of Mazzatun.

  • Three new sets are available from the Cradle of Shadows dungeon: Hand of Mephala, Gossamer, and Widowmaker.

Four New MotifsEdit

  • There are four new Motifs coming to Tamriel: Dark Brotherhood Motif, dro-m'Athra Motif, Minotaur Motif, and Order of the Hour.
  • Chapters of the Dark Brotherhood style motif - or, rarely, the full Motif Book - can be obtained by completing Sacraments for the Dark Brotherhood.
  • Black Beeswax, the Dark Brotherhood Style Item, can be obtained by completing Dark Brotherhood Contracts.
  • Chapters of the dro-m'Athra style motif - or, rarely, the full Motif Book - can be obtained by completing the quest to clear the Maw of Lorkhaj.

  • Chapters of the Minotaur style motif, or rarely the full Motif Book, occasionally from the Daily Quest to kill the Minotaur boss in the Gold Coast.
  • The Daily Quest to kill the Minotaur boss in the Gold Coast, and killing the Minotaur group boss, will occasionally drop Oxblood Fungus, the full Style Item.
  • You can obtain Oxblood Fungus Spores, the raw version of the Style Item, rarely from killing lesser Minotaurs all over the Gold Coast.

Name Change (Crown Store)Edit

  • You can now change your character's name using Name Change Tokens from the Crown Store!
  • Once purchased these tokens are utilized at the Character Select screen to select a new name for one character.
  • The token will not be consumed until a valid name is successfully chosen.
  • If you cancel the change, you will retain your token.

Appearance and Race Change (Crown Store)Edit

  • In addition to changing character names, you can now change your characters' appearance as well as their race.

Appearance and Race Change Tokens are available through the Crown Store and as with Name Change Tokens, are utilized at the Character Select screen.

  • Appearance change allows for complete modification of the character's appearance, including but not limited to hair styles and colors, adornments, face and body markings, facial features, eye color, age, body and face shape, as well as selected voice. Race Change Tokens take this a step further, allowing for the character to become any valid available race for the character and account. (Note: The Imperial Race and the Any Race, Any Alliance upgrades may be required in some circumstances.)
  • When changing your character's race, any Skill Points spent on the Racial Skill Line will be refunded and the progress made in that Skill Line will be transferred to the new race.

Dye Stamps (Crown Store)Edit

  • You can now purchase consumable Dye Stamps from the Crown Store.
  • Each Dye Stamp comes preset with specific colors and color order—they can be applied to your Costumes and Hats, regardless of whether or not you have unlocked the associated dye colors via the Achievement System.
  • You can purchase multiple of the same Dye Stamp and store them in stacks in your bank for later use. You can preview the new look prior to purchase and prior to application of the Dye Stamp.
  • Rare dyes unlocked from achievements are not available on dye stamps. However, other colors that are unavailable as Dyes may be.

Costume Dyeing (Exclusive to ESO Plus)Edit

  • ESO Plus members can now dye their costumes (and hats!) via a new tab at any Dye Station using any dyes they've unlocked via achievements.
  • This works the same as armor dyeing.
  • The applied dye pattern is unique on a per-character basis, allowing you to use the same unlocked collectible costumes and hats on multiple characters with independent dye color customization.

Trade Bind-on-Pickup Items in Dungeons & Trials to Group MembersEdit

  • Equipment looted while in a Dungeon or Trial group can now be traded to active group members up to two hours after being looted.
  • Group members must have been present when the items dropped, and in the instance (if applicable), in order for trading to be an option.
  • Items that can be traded will have modified tooltips indicating how long they can be traded for, as well as to whom.
  • Not all items that are bind-on-pickup can be traded. Monster Set shoulder pieces, for example, are not tradeable by design.
  • This system is not exclusive to Dungeons and Trials—the system is universal, but most of our bind-on-pickup items that are tradeable do drop in Dungeons and Trials.

Cyrodiil Town CaptureEdit

Introducing the long-requested addition of captureable towns in Cyrodiil! Cropsford, Vlastarus, and Bruma will be available for capture, offering you a new place to battle over.

  • Each town contains three flags to control, with varying degrees of guards at each flag.
  • One flag has no guards at all, one has a few nearby with merchants, and another is fully guarded much like the Imperial City District flags.
  • Ownership of a town grants that Alliance another place to respawn from PVP deaths, as well as access to town merchants that sell purple-quality gear set pieces for Alliance Points.

Champion Point CapEdit

  • The Champion Point cap has been raised by a total of 30 points (10 in each red/blue/green constellation) to 531 Champion Points. The Champion Point experience curve has been automatically adjusted with this new cap so that earlier Champion Points require less experience and can be earned faster.

Updates to Racial Passive AbilitiesEdit

  • To support the new Race Change feature, racial passive abilities for each race have been adjusted and rebalanced.
  • Each race now has a flavorful and thematic non-combat bonus added to the first free passive ability of their skill line.
  • Weaker passive abilities have been also improved to help with the overall combat viability and balance of each race.

Please see the Base Game Patch Combat & Gameplay notes for full details.
