OVERVIEW
The Elder Scrolls Online v2.7.2 adds additional balance tweaks and adjustments to all four classes, item sets, and other skill lines. We’ve also fixed a number of issues surrounding housing, furnishings, the editor, and furnishing crafting. You’ll find that we’ve added Developer Comments to some patch notes that should help give you some insight as to why we’ve made the changes we did.

In this patch, we’ve copied all PC EU characters for use in testing. Please note we are still working on a fix for our players on Mac who are running into consistent game crashes.

Thank you to everyone for all your feedback so far! We’d love to hear what you think of this latest patch after you’re able to test out the changes which is approximately 185MB in size.
