OVERVIEW
The Elder Scrolls Online v2.6.2 is an incremental patch on the PTS that includes several new features and addresses several issues. We’ve enabled Crown Crates for testing, in addition to turning on the New Life Festival for a short time. We’ve also made many itemization-related fixes and addressed numerous issues in dungeons and Craglorn. Improvements are ongoing with several Weapon Ultimates, and we also fixed a longstanding issue where your character’s movement speed had decreased in a previous update.

Summary

  • Crown Crates are now available to test on the PTS
  • New Life Festival
  • The minimum bid and the buyout price for a Guild Trader with no bids have been increased to 10,000 gold from 100 gold.
  • Doubled the drop rate of Draugr Style chapters from Fighters Guild Merits, Mages Guild Merits, and Undaunted Merits containers for players at the highest possible rank for that guild
  • Survey Reports now drop half as often from Crafting Writs, but rich nodes at survey sites now provide twice as many materials as they did previously.
  • Survey Reports are no longer unique items, and now stack to 200.

FIXES & IMPROVEMENTS, ORSINIUM DLC GAME PACK

Crafting & Economy
Survey Reports

  • Adjusted the position of one of the rich ore nodes at the survey site for “Blacksmith Survey: Wrothgar II” to ensure the node is always visible.

Art & Animation

  • Fixed an issue that was causing the face mask from the Outlaw Motif helm not to appear.
  • The face mask from the Abah’s Watch Turban with Mask is now the same color as the head wrap.

Crafting & Economy
General

  • The minimum bid and the buyout price for a Guild Trader with no bids have been increased to 10,000 gold from 100 gold.

Alchemy

  • Fixed an issue that caused poisons to scale their duration based on your target’s level, instead of your own level.
  • Corrected the name of the active effect for Poisons of Ravage Health to “Ravage Health” instead of “Drain Health”.
  • Added icons to several negative active effects that could appear on crafted potions, which did not previously have their own icons.
  • Clarified the names of several reagent traits.
    • Lower Spell Resist is now Lower Spell Resistance
    • Lower Armor is now Lower Physical Resistance
    • Spell Crit is now Spell Critical
    • Weapon Crit is now Weapon Critical


Motifs

  • Doubled the drop rate of Draugr Style chapters from Fighters Guild Merits, Mages Guild Merits, and Undaunted Merits containers for players at the highest possible rank for that guild (Rank 10 for the Fighters Guild and the Mages Guild, Rank 9 for the Undaunted.)
  • Fixed an issue where the Draugr Style’s full Motif book did not correctly grant the crafting style.
  • Fixed an issue that caused items in the Draugr and Skinchanger styles to appear Breton in appearance. This affected items crafted in either style, as well as items that dropped in either style.


Survey Reports

  • Survey Reports now drop half as often from Crafting Writs, but rich nodes at survey sites now provide twice as many materials as they did previously. This should result in roughly the same amount of materials from Survey Reports overall, but each individual report is now more lucrative.
  • Survey Reports are no longer unique items, and now stack to 200. Only one Survey Report will be used each time you approach and harvest the associated survey report site.
