ESOTU Patch Notes 2.5.1 (PTS) – Crafting Summary

New content coming to ESOTU!The following is a summary of the crafting related changes included in this #ESOTU patch for the PC and Mac.

The Elder Scrolls Online v2.5.1 is our first incremental patch on the PTS for Update 11 and the Shadows of the Hist DLC game pack. It addresses a number of issues with the new content and systems as well as introducing three new features that were missing in the initial PTS launch. This incremental patch also includes some fixes in the base game patch for quests, itemization, crafting, and more. We’ve also updated the existing character templates to include the six new dungeon item sets, two new Monster Mask sets (Velidreth and Haj Mota), and updated Trials and Dragonstar Arena item sets and Master Weapons.The size of this patch is approximately 640MB.


Base Game Patch

Trade Bind-on-Pickup Items in Dungeons & Trials to Group Members
Equipment looted while in a group can now be traded to active group members for two hours after being looted.

Dye Stamps (Crown Store)
You will soon have the opportunity to purchase consumable Dye Stamps from the Crown Store.

Find the Crow Caller to Herald the Witches Festival!
For a short time, players can petition a Witchmother for her boon! But does it come with a price?


Crafting & Economy

  • Heavy Sacks found in Cradle of Shadows and Ruins of Mazzatun now provide loot that is appropriately scaled to the passive rank of the associated tradeskill.


Crafting & Economy

  • Achievements referencing Trait research now properly refer to Decisive and Prosperous rather than Weighted and Exploration.


  • Potions of Protection and Vulnerability now state their correct duration.
  • Fixed an issue wherein damage-dealing poisons would at times incorrectly deal damage multiple times per tick.
  • Addressed a rarely occurring issue that could cause some potions to display the incorrect duration for their Breach effect.
  • Potions that contain more than one of Ravage Magicka, Ravage Stamina, Sustained Restore Health, or Creeping Ravage Health will now see those effects all apply properly when the potion is used. In the specific case of Sustained Restore Health and Creeping Ravage Health both being in the same potion, these two effects will cancel each other out.
  • New visual effects have been added to poisons that apply Ward, Uncertainty, Hindrance, Cowardice, Maim, Savagery, Fracture, and Resolve.


  • Removed an extraneous tooltip that could be seen in the world near some survey sites.
  • Survey Report Runestones now produce a Potency Rune in lieu of one of their previous two Essence Runes. Additionally, these Runestones have been renamed to avoid confusion related to calling them “dual” when they produce four (or more) runes.


New Features
Trade Bind-on-Pickup Items in Dungeons & Trials to Group Members

  • Currently, traded bind-on-pickup items can be put in Guild Banks, Guild Stores and Mail. This is not intended, and will be fixed in the next PTS patch.

Witches Festival

  • Upon use, the Grim Harlequin style chapter items are not currently teaching the Grim Harlequin style.
  • Many delve bosses won’t currently drop Plunder Skulls from with the Witches Festival buff

Crafting & Economy

  • Spell Critical poisons currently use an incorrect visual effect on the target when procced.
