[PTS] ESOTU [PC] Patch Notes 3.0.4 – Crafting Summary

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

NOTE: Currently, on the Public Test Server (PTS). Information here is from the patch notes published on their forums.

OVERVIEW

The Elder Scrolls Online v3.0.4 is our last incremental patch on the PTS. In this patch, you’ll find that we’ve continued to make balance adjustments to combat and abilities, and have also continued making fixes affecting Vvardenfell quests, Battlegrounds, Halls of Fabrication, and more.

In order for us to begin testing out the proper permission levels for Early Access, only players who have pre-purchased the Morrowind Digital Upgrade will have access to Morrowind content. All PC players will be able to continue testing the base game and any of the old DLC content, including the balance changes in this patch. Additionally, if you already have a Warden created, you will still be able to access that character and play anywhere except Vvardenfell, Battlegrounds, or Halls of Fabrication.

The size of this final patch is 162MB. Thanks to everyone for all your testing and feedback over the past few weeks. We can’t wait to welcome everyone to Morrowind!

ESOTU Housing

It goes without saying that any adventurer in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a house. After all, one does get tired of the Innkeeper dragging one’s drunken self back to one’s room by the ear each night lecturing the entire time about how clothes aren’t optional in the common areas.

ESOTU Housing: Realistic Goals for Day 1

Say What?
Overheard in Tamriel

If you are excited about housing as much as I am, I suggest checking out the article Homestead: Furnishing Day 1” on Tamrielfoundry.com.  It talks about the logisitics of obtaining furniture crafting plans (1100) and harvesting the furniture materials. I have to agree, we are in for a grind.

The article quotes a source at Zenimax that recipe sourcing is influenced by the region they are found.  There was a similar approach when provisioning recipes were introduced. I recall watching Icy’s YouTube video on housing and how she was disappointed that she didn’t find any Redguard themed recipes in the Redguard zone she was farming the recipes in.

The element of housing that was missed in the article was the ability to get recipes and items from Fishing.  Overall, it’s a great read.
