ESOTU [PTS] Crafter Alert: Changes to Staves

New content coming to ESOTU!To be an effective crafting consultant, one must be aware of the changes to the weapons you create from the basic of materials.

Let it be known

Ancient Knowledge: This passive ability no longer decreases the cast time of your Destruction Staff Heavy Attacks by 5/10%. Instead, it grants you a bonus as long as you have one Destruction Staff ability slotted. This bonus depends on your staff type:

  • Flame Staves: Increases your single-target damage dealt by 4/8%.
  • Frost Staves: Increases the amount of damage you Block by 10/20%, and reduces the cost of Block by 15/30%.
  • Lightning Staves: Increases your Area of Effect damage dealt by 4/8%.

Tri Focus:

  • This passive ability now taunts the enemy after you use a fully-charged Frost Heavy Attack.
  • This passive ability now causes your block to drain Magicka (instead of Stamina) and stops your Magicka Recovery (instead of Stamina Recovery) while blocking when you have a Frost Destruction Staff equipped.
