v2.1.8 is an incremental patch that addresses issues in the Imperial City, plus general itemization, gameplay, and UI.
Here is a summary of the crafting-related fixes
Exploration & Itemization
- The only Dwemer spiders remaining in Bthanual are now made solely with spare and second-hand parts, and will no longer drop useful spoils.
- Twice Born Star: Fixed an issue where the Steed and the Serpent Mundus Stone buffs could be replaced with other buffs while wearing this item set.
- Fixed an issue where vendor prices would not display if the cost was 6 digits or more.
- Fixed an issue where the contents of the bank would not refresh properly when using the Stack All button.
The Kagrenac’s Hope set / Battle Resurrection is bugged and has been confirmed by ZOS.
I also experienced this “bug” just after I had crafted my Vr16 Kagrenac’s set and put it on. It seems to be a common link between all of us who have had the issue. We went from VR14 old gear to our new VR16 crafted Kagrenac’s and could tell something was not right….
I believe you may have nailed it, when we change gear it does not apply the [Battle Spirit] buff. Ever since coming across this thread I have swapped gear in an effort to test and because I was paranoid. Little did I know that is most likely what is causing it. The only counter to your theory is that when I crafted my gear in Bangkorai I put the gear on and then zoned into IC, so it may not be when you zone in.
There have been several posts on the forums that confirm that the inspiration (crafting xp) earned from the deconstructing of stolen items has significantly decreased. It has been suggested that laundering the items will improve the inspiration received but it is disputed.
The Glass Motif has been added to the crown store at a price of 5000 crowns. A lot of crafters are unhappy with its introduction so soon after the fragments and motifs were added to the game.
Passing through the bazaar of Sentinel, a local chef prepared a dish he called “The Secret Chef’s Pork Roast”. It was tasty enough to satiate my hunger… While spending the next few days at the healer’s tent “recovering” from a secret ingredient, I overheard the healers chat about their tips to obtain reagents for their healing potions.
This notebook provides harvesting tips and documents a few popular locations to find alchemy reagents in Tamriel.
