[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!

Highlights

  • Fixed an issue where several of the new banners and tapestries had collision.
  • The Services category now appears at the top of the Housing Editor category list.
  • Fixed an issue that prevented Brewers and Chefs from offering basic recipes for sale to player characters who had not yet discovered Provisioning.
