Note: This patch is currently on the Public Test Server

  • Target Skeletons now stack to 200 in the inventory. That’s a lot of skeletons!

  • 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.

  • 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.

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.
