ESO Patch Notes v.5.3.2 – Highlights (PTS)

The Elder Scrolls Online v5.3.2 introduces the Jester’s Festival for testing, which adds a new pet to collect! We’ve also made a number of fixes for the Harrowstorm dungeons, and applied fixes or adjustments for several item sets. Additionally, we’ve implemented one fix for Block and are still investigating additional situations where you may appear to be blocking, but are not gaining the damage mitigation. Size: 288MB.
