ESOTU [PC] Patch Notes 3.1.5 – Crafting Summary

The following is a summary of the crafting and housing related changes included in this #ESOTU patch for the PC and Mac.


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 Horns of the Reach DLC Game Pack. 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.

In this update, you’ll be able to explore and conquer two all-new 4 player dungeons – Bloodroot Forge and Falkreath Hold. These dungeons offer new item sets, Monster Masks, achievements and unique rewards!

We’ve also added a new Battlegrounds map – Arcane University – and a new game mode for Battlegrounds: Chaosball. Both of these are available to anyone who owns The Elder Scrolls Online: Morrowind. You’ll also find that we’ve added several new Medals to support Chaosball.

The base game patch features a number of new features including updates to the Master Writ Merchant, new housing furnishings, and numerous quality of life improvements. These include customizable combat cues, new guild features, research cancelling, bankable Writ Vouchers and Alliance Points, and more. And as always, we’ve made several fixes and improvements to existing content as well.

You’ll also note that we’ve added a new, separate Combat & Gameplay section to the patch notes so it’s clear which changes were done in an effort to improve balance, and which changes are bug fixes or minor improvements.

We hope you enjoy this new update, which is approximately 5.8GB in size.Enjoy!

This article is out of date and the attributes of the sets listed here may no longer be correct. However, it may be useful to locate where individual item slots (shoulders, helm, etc.) can be obtained and when a pledge dungeon will be offered next by the pledge quest givers.

For current set attributes, try

I am planning to update this article but I cannot provide an estimate of when it will be done at this time.


Crafted equipment can have different appearancesWith Update 12 (aka 2.6.x or OneTamriel), itemization in the game was significantly changed. Every region will offer players the chance to find three sets unique to the region: One light, one medium, and one heavy.  With regards to the quality of items found, the general principle is that the harder the foe or further into a dungeon or trial, the better the loot.

This is was made possible by the hard work of @cosmic_3000 and HeroOfNone for sharing it on Twitter and on the official forums. Their information was re-presented in alphabetical order and in a format more user-friendly those accessing the page on their mobiles and/or tablets, and added links to quests and my pledge calendar.
