The Elder Scrolls Online v3.0.2 is an incremental patch for the PTS that has several fixes and adjustments for Medals in Battlegrounds, Vvardenfell quests, the Halls of Fabrication, and more tweaks for the Warden class. We’ve also continued to add more final music and VO to Morrowind, and have made more gameplay balance adjustments affecting Nightblades, Sorcerers, and Templars. In this patch, we’ve copied all PC/Mac European megaserver characters; max-level character templates are still available for use. This patch is approximately 277MB in size.
Morrowind gear item set styles updated
Added new furnishings as rare drops from containers in ancestral tombs.
Purple and Gold quality housing items from Morrowind now require confirmation before you delete them.
Added new foliage items to the Purchase tab of the Housing Editor.
The Shadowy Supplier now appears on your map once you’ve unlocked the Shadowy Supplier passive.
Maw of Lorkhaj will now drop Khajiit furnishing plans more often than other plans.
Furnishing plans at crafting stations are now correctly alphabetized in the English game client.
Cooking Stations can now be found in the Crafting Station section of the Services category.
Codeman1976 has shared a very useful crafting tool on the official forums that generates a list of all the items needed to craft various gear sets. It was created for his guild Shadowscales of Black Marsh.
There are drop down boxes to build the crafting order and generates the list as you progress through each of the boxes. You can use the generated text to cut and paste into the game UI to mail or whisper the needed components to your client.

The Elder Scrolls Online v2.7.3 includes some additional balance tweaks and bug fixes for combat, in addition to numerous fixes surrounding the player housing system. We do have a number of known issues relating to grouping and sitting in chairs, which will be addressed before this update goes live. The size of this patch is approximately 540MB.
Target Skeletons now stack to 200 in the inventory. That’s a lot of skeletons!
Added a higher-health Target Skeleton to Rolis Hlaalu’s store: the Robust Target Skeleton. This Target Skeleton makes a better target for those who want to evaluate larger skeleton damage sums over long periods of time.
Rolis Hlaalu now sells an envelope that, when opened, will provide a random purple Furnishing Plan.
Adjusted the drop chance calculations for Master Writs from Clothiering, Blacksmithing, and Woodworking: now they look at your long-term mastery of their own research information when determining your chance of receiving a Master Writ.
Increased the Writ Voucher yield for Akaviri-style items from Master Writs by 10%, and for Orzorga’s Smoked Bear Haunch and Psijic Ambrosia by 25%.
After fighting a Target Skeleton, you will now get a report via the chat log indicating your damage per second as well as the length of the fight.
Increased the chance to receive furnishing-related rewards from criminal activities like pickpocketing and murder.
All homes now load the Unfurnished version by default when previewed. You may swap between the Furnished/Unfurnished versions exactly as before when desired.
All furnishings in Cyrodiil are now sold for Alliance Points instead of gold.
Items now show whether they are interactable, sittable, readable, lights, animated, crafting stations, or target skeletons on the item tooltip.
Updated the pricing of furnishings from Home Goods Furnishers to improve overall consistency.
Added Population to the House Information panel. This communicates the current/maximum amount of player characters in your house.
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%.
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.
