Released on November 06 2017.

Welcome to The Elder Scrolls Online v1.10.0.0 and the Clockwork City where you can enter Sotha Sil's legendary creation and explore his mysterious mechanical world. In addition to new quests to enjoy, you'll also come across two new world bosses and two delves, plus a new 12-player Trial: Asylum Sanctorium. We've also added 12 new item sets, two new Motifs, over 200 new furnishings, and a host of fun, new collectibles.

For players that own The Elder Scrolls Online: Morrowind, we've added a new Battleground game mode – Crazy King – where your team must seize a capture point location that jumps randomly around the map. It's, well, crazy!

The base game update introduces the highly-anticipated Transmutation system which allows you to change the traits on your gear, including weapons and armors. We've also added a trait tracker that will allow you to see whether or not you've researched the unique trait on an item. Additionally, we've made a number of performance optimizations resulting in better frame rate and shorter loading times. We've also added support for the Xbox One X in this update, too!

We can't wait for you to discover this mysterious, new zone. This update in its entirety is approximately 37GB in size. Enjoy!

New Features / Updates / Big Changes[edit]

Clockwork City

Venture to the bizarre realm of Sotha Sil, the Clockwork God and third member of the Dunmer Tribunal! The machine world is rife with frightening and alien dangers lurking beneath its metallic deserts and artificial trees, where only tiny pockets of citizens are able to carve out a quasi-religious society that values enlightenment and experimentation in emulation of its detached benefactor. A dark conspiracy threatens the integrity of the Clockwork City, and signs of a powerful Daedric relic manifesting within that realm draw all interested eyes toward Sotha Sil's domain.

  • To visit the Clockwork City, you can acquire the quest to take you there by accepting it from the Collectibles/Stories interface, or by visiting the Mages Guild in Mournhold.
The Brass Fortress

Going to the Clockwork City will eventually lead you to the Brass Fortress, the center of the city itself and the one place that the Clockwork Apostles, dedicated priests and inventors, work to improve their bodies and minds – sometimes with dubious “replacement” parts! Here, you can find the usual services and commodities.

  • The Tarnished: Not everyone in the Clockwork City pledges themselves to Sotha Sil. He is a benevolent god, in his own way, and allows them to remain regardless of their lack of devotion. This sub-society of outcasts, transients, and vagabonds are known collectively as the Tarnished, and have made themselves a valuable part of the city even if the Apostles themselves do not always appreciate it. Razgurug, the “mayor” of these downtrodden folk, offers what recompense he can in exchange for assistance to support the society that the distant Apostles will not.
New World Bosses and Delves

The Clockwork City is a treacherous place with dangers both native and invasive.

  • World Bosses
    • The Sanctuary of Verification: Sotha Sil is a distant ruler, and his experiments are often left for hundreds of years at a time until a new idea occurs to him. In the case of the frightening war machine known as the Imperfect, the Clockwork God has set the storage facility itself to continually tweak and make improvements to the dangerous construct. For what purpose was it built, and even more chilling to ask, how many of them are there?
    • The Exarchs' Egress: An unknown Daedric force creeps through the shadows of the Clockwork City, bringing with it a new type of Daedric monster – the Wraith-of-Crows. Through a mysterious, remote gate, you can travel to the Daedric realm that houses these malignant monsters and battle a triumvirate of these creatures.
  • Delves
    • The Halls of Regulation: As an artificial environment, the Clockwork City requires breathable air, potable water, and the processing of waste. The Halls of Regulation do all of this, crewed by enigmatic automated machine-people known as Factotums located in the eastern half of Clockwork City. Unfortunately, the facility has broken down for reasons unknown. Have the Factotums malfunctioned, or is this a case of sabotage?
    • The Shadow Cleft: Another dark artery winding its way into Clockwork City can be found in the Shadow Cleft toward the western half of the zone. Nightmare creatures and things that go bump in the night all lurk in this strange place, where several enterprising Clockwork Apostles disappeared attempting to discern its true masters.
  • Repeatable Bounties: The Clockwork Facilitator and Novice Holli, both residing in the eastern portion of the Brass Fortress, each offer daily bounties to investigate and overcome dangers at these locations.
New Sites to Explore

Two full quest objectives exist in the wilderness of the Clockwork City for you to explore.

  • The Everwound Wellspring: As most of the Clockwork City is made of metal, oil, or cables, finding a place to grow food in this artificial environment was a project of Sotha Sil's that he regrettably abandoned some years ago. However, enterprising Apostles refurbished its facilities and begin to grow fresh food once again. It seems almost too good to be true, but the Lector in charge of the Wellspring goes so far as to invite apprentices to join him each year. Perhaps you can find yourself selected to be the next!
  • The Mnemonic Planisphere: Being a god brings innumerable distractions, but Sotha Sil is clever and resourceful. To purge himself of unneeded memories and distractions, he constructed the Planisphere – a celestial orrery and observatory in which he could temporarily store unwanted dreams and thoughts. An enigmatic Astronomer maintains the place, with but a single assistant to aid in the process. With no defenses to speak of, the Planisphere would be in great danger should anyone seek to do irreparable harm to Sotha Sil's stored memories.
New Trial
Asylum Sanctorium

Sotha Sil, always seeking knowledge, used three Dunmer saints in his earliest experiments into everlasting life. Using the power of Soul Gems, he created mechanical vessels for the saints and imprisoned their souls within. While the experiment was successful, the Saints were driven insane by the process. The Asylum Sanctorium was created to house the Saints so that they would not threaten the rest of the Clockwork City. The Saints have grown in power during their imprisonment and now threaten to break free of their prison. The time has come to end the threat they pose.

  • Asylum Sanctorium is a 12-player Trial located within the Brass Fortress in Clockwork City.
  • The Trial includes a normal and challenging Veteran version.
  • There are all-new skill augmenting “Asylum” weapons (which you can read more about below) in the same fashion as Master and Maelstrom weapons.
  • Unique Achievement rewards are available for completing this Trial, including:
    • Unique skin
    • Several Titles
    • Unique housing items
Asylum and Perfect Asylum Weapons

Much as the Master's and Maelstrom's weapons before, the Asylum and Perfect Asylum weapons alter and improve the effect of one of your weapon skill line's abilities. Perfect Asylum weapons have the same benefit as the imperfect Asylum weapons, but at a greater magnitude. Perfect Asylum weapons are available only for those intrepid heroes who can conquer the hardest battle available in Asylum Sanctorium - St. Olms, and both of his allies, fighting alongside one another.

For a full list of the Asylum weapons, please see the New Item Sets section a bit further down.

Asylum Sanctorium Itemization

In Asylum Sanctorium, you can obtain rewards based on not only the Trial's difficulty (Normal or Veteran), but also on how many allies the boss, St. Olms, has with him.

  • Defeating either St. Llothis or St. Felms on their lonesome will award you with a green-quality (Normal mode) or blue-quality (Veteran mode) armor item from one of the item sets in Clockwork City: Mad Tinkerer, Unfathomable Darkness, or Livewire. However, doing this means they cannot aid St. Olms in his fight against you, which lessens both the rewards, and the difficulty, of fighting him.
  • Defeating St. Olms on his lonesome will award you with either a Blue-quality (Normal) or Purple-quality (Veteran) Asylum Weapon.
  • In addition to the above, if you defeat St. Olms and one of his two allies in the same battle, you will receive a Blue-quality (Normal) or Purple-quality (Veteran) armor piece and jewelry piece from the Clockwork City item sets.
  • If you defeat St. Olms with both of his allies in the same battle, on Normal mode, you will receive a blue-quality Asylum Weapon, two Blue-quality pieces of Clockwork City set armor, and a Purple-quality Clockwork City set jewelry piece.
  • If you defeat St. Olms with both of his allies in the same battle, on Veteran mode - the hardest possible configuration of the Trial! - you will receive a Purple-quality Perfect Asylum weapon, more powerful than the imperfect Asylum weapons awarded in other configurations. You will also receive two Purple-quality pieces of Clockwork City set armor, and a Gold-quality Jewelry piece from those same sets. In addition, you will rarely receive a Runebox for the Clockwork Reliquary Polymorph.
  • Placing on the Leaderboards for Asylum Sanctorium will award you with a single Gold-quality Perfect Asylum weapon.
  • Once per week, completing Asylum Sanctorium on Veteran mode and fighting all three Saints at once will earn you a Radiance Resonator, worth 10,000g to a vendormerchant. In addition, Undaunted Plunder drops from St. Olms (not the other Saints) on Veteran Mode only.
New Collectibles

We've added many new Collectibles that are available to earn from the Clockwork City area and content.

  • Scintillant Dovah-Fly: This non-combat pet will join you when you first set foot in the Brass Fortress.
  • Begone!: Obtain this Emote by completing the quest "Lost in the Gloam" in Clockwork City.
  • Umbral Projector: This Memento is acquired by completing the achievement, the Hero of Clockwork City.
  • Revolving Celestiodrome: This unique Furnishing is obtained by completing the quest "The Light of Knowledge" in Clockwork City.
  • Trophy, Saint Olms the Just: This Furnishing is obtained by defeating St. Olms in Asylum Sanctorium on any difficulty.
  • Bust, Saint Olms the Just: This Furnishing is obtained by defeating St. Olms in Asylum Sanctorium on Veteran difficulty.
  • Sanctified Silver: This Skin is available from defeating St. Olms in Asylum Sanctorium with his allies in the same battle, on Veteran mode.
  • Clockwork Curator: This Polymorph is rarely available as a Runebox, dropped from defeating St. Olms in Asylum Sanctorium with his allies in the same battle, on Veteran mode.
New Item Sets

There are 12 new Item Sets available from a variety of sources: 3 Item Sets available at crafting stations in Clockwork City, 3 Item Sets available as drops throughout Clockwork City, and 6 Item Sets available as drops in the new Trial, Asylum Sanctorium.

New Target Dummy
The Precursor

Associate Zanon of the Clockwork Apostles is near to completing his study of Factotum construction, and has made a fascinating discovery in his research. After finding a discarded Factotum head in a junk pile, he was alarmed to discover that it could still speak! If you respond to Zanon's posting on the board within the Brass Fortress, you may assist him in reassembling this unique construct and discovering its true purpose.

  • This new Target Dummy item, the Precursor, can be obtained by finding all of the Precursor's parts throughout Clockwork City and reassembling it.
  • Though only slightly more durable than a typical Public Dungeon boss, it dryly quips as you sharpen your blade upon it.
New Motifs

Two motifs have been added to Clockwork City:

  • The Apostle Style, once known only to Sotha Sil's disciples, is now available for crafters! The Chapters for this style, and its Style Item, Polished Brass, can be obtained by completing certain Daily Quests in Clockwork City that aid the Brass Fortress and combat Clockwork foes.
  • The Ebonshadow style, emblematic of Nocturnal, is also available for crafters! The Chapters for this style and its Style Item, Tenebrous Cord, can be obtained by completing certain Daily Quests in Clockwork City that aid the Blackfeather Court or pit you against shadowy foes.
New Furnishings

Over 200 new furnishings have been added to the game through various sources, many of which can be purchased through the Housing Editor or crafted. The associated recipes and additional furnishings can be found throughout Clockwork City, with sourcing including everything from Justice activities and monster drops, to various containers and merchants. These furnishings include precision tools and small pieces of machinery from Justice activities, as well as obsolete Factotum parts from Factotum enemies.

New Achievements

Clockwork City comes with over 40 new achievements to pursue, with 6 new titles to unlock!


New Battleground Game Mode
Crazy King

Crazy King is a new game mode that is similar to Domination, but a bit more frantic…or crazy, if you will!

  • The game begins with a single capture point in the middle of the map, then after a brief period of time, another capture point is added up to a maximum of four. After a bit more time, that initial capture point in the center will move to another location on the map.
  • This cycle of moving capture points continues for the rest of the match for a fast-moving game mode we hope you'll enjoy!

Horns of the Reach[edit]

New Motifs

Two motifs have been added to the Horns of the Reach DLC game pack, in conjunction with two new motif achievements.

  • The Dreadhorn style is now available for crafters! The signature style of the invaders of Falkreath Hold can be learned from Chapters obtained by defeating Domihaus, the final boss of the Falkreath Hold dungeon. The Style Item, Minotaur Bezoar, can be obtained by defeating bosses in Falkreath Hold. The chance of obtaining Chapters and Style Items increases with the difficulty of the dungeon.
  • The Bloodforge style is now available for crafters! Used by the denizens of Bloodroot Forge, the Chapters for this Motif can be obtained by defeating the Earthgore Amalgam. The Style Item, Bloodroot Flux, can be obtained by defeating bosses in Bloodroot Forge. The chance of obtaining Chapters and Style Items increases with the difficulty of the dungeon.

Base Game Update[edit]

Xbox One X Support

In this update, we've added support for the Xbox One X console. This includes native 4k support, SSAO, and improved draw distance. Be sure to check out this article to learn more about the supported features.


A new way of altering your equipment is available in this update. Transmutation allows you to permanently change the trait of an item to one of your choosing! The requirements to utilize Transmutation is as follows:

  • Transmutation can only be done at a Transmute Station, which is a new service station found in the Brass Fortress.
    • Home furnishing versions of these stations may also be purchased for Writ Vouchers from Rolis Hlaalu the Master Writ Merchant.
  • Transmutation requires Transmute Crystals, precious resources occasionally received for successfully completing Veteran PvE activities such as Pledges, Trials, and Arenas, and several PvP sources such as Rewards for the Worthy, Battleground end of match rewards, and AvA end of campaign rewards. Transmute Crystals are an account wide, capped currency which cannot be banked or traded.
  • Transmutation requires having previously researched the desired trait.
  • Jewelry cannot be transmuted.
Trait Tracker

Along with the ability to change traits, equipment tooltips now have an icon next to the trait that communicates the trait's status:

ON-icon-Researched.png Can Research
ON-icon-Ornate.png Ornate
ON-icon-Intricate.png Intricate
ON-icon-Transmuted.png Trait Changed
(no icon) No Trait/Researched
  • The Deconstruction screen will now group items based on trait status, such that items that you are more likely to deconstruct are sorted to the top.
  • The Sell screen at Vendors will list Ornate items at the top.
  • With the ability to more easily determine your own trait knowledge, and the ability to change traits depending on your trait knowledge, you should now enjoy easier management of your inventory and bank and greater control over the items you wield and wear.
Performance Updates

In this update, we've been hard at work improving the performance of the client. We've overhauled how the client handles animations, significantly reducing memory requirements. Additionally, we've made significant optimizations to the Scene Graph. Together, these two additions have resulted in significant gains in frame rate and improved load times into areas with many characters and/or buildings, including in Cyrodiil.

Crafting Writ Turn-In Site Universalization

With the Clockwork City base game update, you may now turn in your Crafting Writs at any Writ turn-in site throughout the world, regardless of crafting rank.

New Home

The Orbservatory Prior home is available to preview and purchase. This Notable Home can hold 350 Traditional Furnishings (700 with ESO+), 5 Special Furnishings (10 with ESO+), 40 Collectible Furnishings (80 with ESO+), and 5 Special Collectibles (10 with ESO+), as well as up to 24 other players.

  • The Orbservatory Prior: Located in the Clockwork City, Sotha Sil's designation of this mountaintop laboratory as the "Orbservatory Prior" clearly indicates that the site was an experimental or test version of what he had in mind-though whether he ever built an "Orbservatory Final" is unknown.
Champion Point Increase

The Champion Point cap has been raised by a total of 30 points (10 in each red/blue/green constellation) for a total of 690 points. The Champion Point experience curve has been automatically adjusted with this new cap, so that earlier Champion Points require less experience and can be earned faster.

Morrowind Fixes & Improvements[edit]

Alliance War & PVP[edit]


  • Battleground queues are now divided into 10-49 and 50. This means you will only have level 50 players playing against other level 50 players.
  • The level 50 Battleground queue is now CP-enabled.
  • Capture the Relic interactions have changed! There is now a brief animation and interaction time in picking up Relics in the wild, or at home locations.
    • Relics are still captured by moving near your home Relic with an enemy Relic.
  • Added five new achievements relating to Battlegrounds.
  • Interacting with all flags in a Capture the Flag match now has a small cast time to initially pick up the flag, but it's still instant capture.

Art & Animation[edit]


  • Fonder Jodain no longer flickers as he turns to sit down during the tutorial quest.
  • Naryu no longer flickers during conversation in the quest Broken Bonds.



  • Boss music in Morrowind now plays more reliably.


  • Fixed some cases where voiceover in Battlegrounds could not be heard.

Combat & Gameplay[edit]

Warden, Balance

  • Animal Companions
    • Deceptive Predator (Falcon's Swiftness morph): This morph now increases the duration to 14 seconds, in addition to granting Minor Evasion.
      • Developer Comments: This change helps compensate this morph with additional efficiency. Deceptive Predator's Minor Evasion only gives 5% dodge chance, while Bird of Prey's Minor Berserk gives 8% damage.
    • Feral Guardian:
      • Activating the Guardian's Wrath or Guardian's Savagery special ability will now grant your bear snare, immobilization, and crowd control immunity for 8 seconds.
      • Increased the Health of the bear summoned by this ability and its morphs to 25,000 from 20,000.
        • Developer Comments: This change should help the bear deal with CC while still allowing for counter play. We'll continue to make improvements in future updates. The latter change will also make the bear a little more resilient against incidental Area of Effect attacks, as well as against being focus-fired.
  • Green Balance
    • Lotus Flower: This ability and its morphs will now restore health on partially-charged Heavy Attacks, equal to the amount of health restored on Light Attacks.
    • Bursting Vines (Nature's Grasp morph): Increased the projectile speed for this morph by 100%, and increased the heal from this morph by 10%.
      • Developer Comments: As this is a burst heal, we've significantly increased the travel speed to help it fulfill the role of saving a low-health ally. It heals for less than Rushed Ceremony, but has a cheaper cost.
    • Nature's Grasp: Increased the range of this ability and its morphs to 28 meters from 22 meters.
      • Developer Comments: Increasing this to match the range of other heal abilities in the game makes it easier to use and target allies who are spread out.
    • Secluded Grove:
      • Reduced the healing over time done by this ability and its morphs by approximately 33%.
      • Increased the cost of this ability and its morphs to 90 Ultimate from 75 Ultimate.
        • Developer Comments: We like that Secluded Grove is a cheap Ultimate that Wardens can use frequently for dangerous moments, but the amount of healing it was doing was too high for that low cost.
  • Winter's Embrace
    • Frozen Gate: This ability and its morphs now allow you to have up to 3 gates active at a time, up from 1. Its initial spawning visual effects are now visible to enemies.
      • Developer Comments: Frozen Gate is meant as a flavorful analogue to Fiery Grip. Allowing multiple traps at a time lets you throw it down on several enemies at the same time, then have them all get pulled to you. Clever players can anticipate where enemies will be and put traps down even before they get there.

Warden, Fixes & Improvements

Reduced the intensity of the visual effects from this ability and its morphs. The beam cast by the netch summoned from this ability and its morphs will now be hidden if your character is sneaking or invisible.

    • Blue Betty (Betty Netch morph): Fixed an issue where this morph was not removing a negative effect from you if you had more than one negative effect on you.
  • Green Balance
    • Fungal Growth: Fixed an issue where some of the visual effects of this ability and its morphs were not aligned with the actual location of the healing cone.
  • Winter's Embrace
    • Frozen Gate: Fixed an issue where the visual effects of the Frozen Retreat synergy from this ability and its morphs would linger on your character for an extended period of time.


  • The bosses of Pulk and Nchuleft now summon immediately for players who have not completed the relevant delve achievements.


  • After months of anticipation, Factotums in the maintenance junction have finally received the latest in chassis chic.

Crafting & Economy[edit]


  • Fixed an issue where Crafting Motif 51: Hlaalu Boots could be used even if you had already learned that chapter.

Exploration & Itemization[edit]


  • Master difficulty chests and treasure map chests now have a greater chance of giving Buoyant Armiger motifs if you have the Treasure Hunter passive.



  • Changed the name of the achievement furnishing "Telvanni Device, Static" to “Telvanni Device, Rotating”, and updated its corresponding furnishing tags to be more accurate.
  • The achievement furnishing item "Tapestry, Morag Tong" now has an accurate icon.

Quests & Zones[edit]


  • A copy of the "Invitation to Morrowind" book is now inside the cabin of the boat on the Seyda Neen dock after you complete the Divine Conundrum quest.
  • Grateful pilgrims will stop cowering once you rescue them from Cliff Striders.


  • Echoes of a Fallen House: Fixed an issue where the final fight during this quest could break.
  • Nothing to Sneeze At: You will now be taken back to the step to talk to Tilenra if you run away from Menaldinion immediately after dousing the plants with the potion. This will help prevent your progress from becoming blocked.

Dark Brotherhood Fixes & Improvements[edit]

Combat & Gameplay[edit]

Dark Brotherhood

  • Adjusted the Blade of Woe to further reduce the likelihood of becoming stuck in nearby objects when it is used.

Monster Abilities

  • Sea Mage: Waterspout no longer continues to display its interrupt telegraph after the caster is interrupted.

Exploration & Itemization[edit]

Shadowy Supplier

  • Remains-Silent will no longer silently provide you with only a furnishing when she elects to give you one. You will now receive the furnishing alongside your normal materials for that choice.

Horns of the Reach Fixes & Improvements[edit]

Exploration & Itemization[edit]


  • The Keptu-Horn Skull Sallet hat now correctly indicates it is obtained by completing the Bloodroot Forge Challenger Achievement.



  • Hakkvild's High Hall now correctly displays its map when prompted.

Imperial City Fixes & Improvements[edit]

Exploration & Itemization[edit]


  • Fixed a typo in the component text for the "Daedroth Dropper" achievement from Veteran White-Gold Tower. Dardroths are not a thing.


  • You will no longer occasionally receive fish associated with Cyrodiil when fishing in Imperial City.

Orsinium Fixes & Improvements[edit]

Exploration & Itemization[edit]

Eidetic Memory

  • The note "A Plea for Help" will now appear in the Temple of Ire if you missed it in the previous quest dungeon upon completing the quest "Blood on a King's Hands".

Quests & Zones[edit]


  • Moving out into the biting cold winds in Sorrow's Peak will now pull you out of werewolf form.


Thieves Guild Fixes & Improvements[edit]

Art & Animation[edit]


  • The NPC Olyn Nolar will no longer mysteriously walk through cranes.

Justice System[edit]


  • You can no longer accidentally gain bounty in the Kvatch Arena.

Combat & Gameplay[edit]

Combat Balance[edit]

In this update, we targeted the least used class abilities and morphs for major improvements with the goal being to promote build diversity and creating more interesting choices.


  • Reduced the duration of the stun applied to you when you are knocked off your mount to 2 seconds from 3 seconds, and you will now gain crowd control immunity after this stun expires.
    • Developer Comments: While we want there to still be some risk to running around on a mount, we feel the 3-second penalty is too long for our current combat pace.


  • Ardent Flame
    • Cauterize (Inferno morph): Increased the speed of the projectile from this morph by approximately 50%, and the projectile can now target the casting Dragonknight.
      • Developer Comments: We wanted to make this ability more universally useful in both group and solo play. Additionally, we sped up the projectile to minimize situations where allies would die before the life-saving heal arrived.
  • Draconic Power
    • Reflective Scale: Increased the duration of this ability and it morphs to 6 seconds from 4 seconds.
      • Developer Comments: This new duration is consistent with similar abilities, such as Crystallized Shield or damage shields, and allows Dragonknights to maintain better uptime with less resources spent and global cooldowns used.
  • Earthen Heart
    • Petrify:
      • This ability and its morphs are no longer 30-second disorients. Instead, they are 2.5 second stuns that cannot be blocked or dodged, and they can be placed on multiple targets. We also reduced the cost of this ability and its morphs by approximately 23%.
      • This ability and its morphs can no longer be cast on a crowd-control immune enemy.
      • Reduced the range of this ability and its morphs to 8 meters from 15 meters.
      • Developer Comments: Because group gameplay in ESO is focused around large combat situations, having an entire crowd control ability that could be negated by an ally's area of effect attack didn't fit. We've maintained the current advantages of it being a disorient (such as going through Block and Roll Dodge), but now allow attacks against the target.
We wanted to differentiate Petrify from Stonefist because now, they both stun enemies. The cost reduction and lack of damage make Petrify more utility-focused, while Stonefist deals more damage but requires more Magicka.
Additionally, the last change helps further differentiate the Petrify and Stonefist abilities, and makes it more risky for the Dragonknight to apply Petrify's instant, unavoidable crowd control on an enemy.
  • Shifting Standard (Dragonknight Standard morph): This morph now increases the duration of the standard to 25 seconds, and the standard can be shifted an unlimited amount of times. Shifting the standard no longer refreshes the duration, and the cost of this morph is now the same as the base ability.
    • Developer Comments: The goal of this change is to make Shifting Standard easier to use. Previously, you had to time the ability perfectly to get the maximum effectiveness out of it, and shifting the standard early penalized the duration instead of adding utility.


  • Assassination
    • Executioner: This passive ability no longer requires you to get the killing blow with an Assassination ability to trigger its resource return; it now has a 2-second grace period after damaging the enemy with an Assassination ability where it can still trigger the proc. It also now restores either Magicka or Stamina, whichever you have a higher maximum of, and restores that resource instantly instead of over 6 seconds.
      • Developer Comments: This passive ability will be more useful for tanks who weren't able to get killing blows, and stamina Nightblades who can now get stamina. It also makes the proc more reliable in multiplayer situation where multiple players attacking the enemy.
    • Grim Focus: The Assassin's Will and Assassin's Scourge procs from this ability and its morphs no longer have a 100ms cast time, but the speed of the projectile has been reduced by approximately 10%.
  • Shadow
    • Manifestation of Terror (Aspect of Terror morph): This morph now fears up to 6 enemies per trap, up from 2, and the trap no longer triggers if a crowd control-immune enemy walks over it. Enemies can also now see an initial projectile marking the trap's location.
    • Mass Hysteria (Aspect of Terror morph): This morph no longer fears an additional enemy, but only fears the same amount of enemies as the base ability (2 enemies). It continues to inflict Minor Maim as a morph effect.
      • Developer Comments: We wanted to distinguish the gameplay between Aspect of Terror's morphs. Mass Hysteria grants an instant fear and strong debuff, while Aspect of Terror is more delayed but affects more targets.
Because Aspect of Terror is now more powerful against groups, we've made the initial projectile visible to help add counterplay to the ability.
  • Siphoning
    • Agony: This ability and its morphs is now an ally-targeted spell that heals them over time and costs Health to cast instead of Magicka. We also renamed this ability to Malevolent Offering.
      • Malefic Wreath (Agony morph): This morph now grants Minor Mending when it deals damage to you, and has been renamed to Healthy Offering.
      • Prolonged Suffering (Agony morph): This morph now decreases the health cost, and has been renamed to Shrewd Offering.
      • Developer Comments: This redesign of Agony and its morphs gave us an opportunity to create a new ability more in-line with the theme of Siphoning. It helps Nightblades fulfill the healing role in a unique way, and synergizes with the other Siphoning abilities that let you steal health like Strife or Siphoning Strikes. You can then transfer that health to your allies.
Like Cauterize, this ability can be self-cast. Since you're paying Health to cast it, the total return will be less efficient than casting it on an ally instead.
  • Soul Siphon (Soul Shred morph): Increased the distance an ally can travel away from you before the heal tether snaps to 25 meters, up from 20 meters.


  • Dark Magic
    • Crystal Blast (Crystal Shards morph): Increased the splash damage of this morph by approximately 25%.
      • Developer Comments: We wanted to make this morph worth the time spent casting, so we're increasing the area of effect damage to make it worth the risk of throwing into a pack of enemies.
    • Crystal Shards: This ability and the Crystal Fragments morph no longer stun the enemy hit. The Crystal Blast morph continues to stun the initial enemy hit.
      • Developer Comment: We wanted to separate the function of abilities into more distinct roles. Crystal Shards was overloaded since it had high damage, instant cast, stun, reduced cost. Now if the sorcerer wants a stun they have to either go through a cast time or deal reduced damage.
    • Defensive Rune (Rune Prison morph): The buff applied by this morph will no longer be consumed when you are attacked by a crowd-control immune enemy.
    • Rune Prison: This ability and its morphs are no longer 30-second disorients. Instead, they are 2.5-second stuns that cannot be blocked or dodged, and they can be placed on multiple targets. This ability and its morphs can also no longer be cast on a crowd-control immune enemy, and we increased the cost of this ability and its morphs by approximately 75%.
      • Rune Cage (Rune Prison morph): This morph now deals damage to the enemy if the stun lasts its full duration.
      • The Defensive Rune morph continues to place a buff on you that will stun the next enemy that damages you.
      • Developer Comments: Similar to Petrify, we wanted to change this disorient into a stun while retaining its current functionality to make useful in more situations.


  • Dawn's Wrath
    • Eclipse: This ability and its morphs now returns damage whenever the affected enemy casts a direct damage attack. It still grants crowd control immunity when the effect ends and can now be removed by Break Free. Eclipse can also now be placed on an unlimited amount of enemies as a baseline effect.
      • Total Dark (Eclipse morph): This morph will heal you when the target casts a direct damage attack.
      • Unstable Core (Eclipse morph): This morph adds area of effect damage when the effect ends.
      • Developer Comments: We liked how this ability was acting as a “soft” crowd-control, preventing some abilities but allowing others. However, the list of abilities was too short. We've made the ability more universally effective against most offensive abilities, making the process to select the right target and time for the ability more important.
Casting Eclipse when you have low health means the enemy may be able to ignore it and still kill your character. However, if you are able to stay alive, it can shift the tide of battle in your favor against an aggressive opponent.
  • Solar Barrage (Solar Flare morph): This morph now has a cast time that matches the base ability, and now causes you to pulse point blank area of effect damage every 2 seconds for 6 seconds, with each pulse granting you the Empower buff.
    • Developer Comments: We wanted this ability to feel unique from the Destruction Staff ability Impulse, and require less casts when in area of effect situations.
  • Restoring Light
    • Healing Ritual: Reduced the cast time of this ability and its morphs to 1.2 seconds from 1.5 seconds.
      • Developer Comments: Reducing the cast time of this ability will make it less susceptible to interrupts, and easier to land a potential life-saving heal on an ally. It now fits better with the fast-paced nature of combat.
    • Cleansing Ritual: Increased the cost of this ability and its morphs by approximately 14%.
      • Developer Comments: This change encourages more strategic use of this ability's powerful debuff removal. Recasting this ability to remove only a few debuffs at a time will be a less efficient use of the Templar's resources.


  • One Hand and Shield
    • Shield Wall: Increased the cost of this ability and its morphs to 135 Ultimate from 100.


    • Acid Spray (Arrow Spray morph):
      • Increased the damage over time of this morph by approximately 65%.
      • Increased the duration of the damage over time applied by this morph to 6 seconds from 5 seconds, causing it to tick for one additional instance of damage.
    • Arrow Spray: Increased the duration of the snare applied by this ability and its morphs to 6 seconds from 5 seconds.
    • Scattershot: This ability and its morphs no longer apply a 5-second disorient to enemies hit. Instead, they now apply a 1.5 second stun.
  • Destruction Staff
    • Elemental Storm: Reduced the damage of this ability and the Eye of the Storm morph by approximately 12%. The damage on the Elemental Rage morph remains unchanged.
  • Restoration Staff
    • Panacea: Increased the cost of this ability and its morphs to 125 Ultimate from 100.


  • Light Armor
    • Annulment: Casting this ability and its morphs now requires that you wear 5 pieces of Light Armor.
  • Medium Armor
    • Evasion: Casting this ability and its morphs now requires that you wear 5 pieces of Medium Armor.
  • Heavy Armor
    • Immovable:
      • Casting this ability and its morphs now requires that you wear 5 pieces of Heavy Armor.
      • Increased the duration of this ability to 20 seconds from 13.5 at Rank IV.
      • Reduced the cost of this ability and its morphs by approximately 5%.
        • Developer Comments: We wanted to make each of the armor types feel more distinct from each other and have you make a more impactful decision when selecting Light, Medium or Heavy. Immovable's duration was increased duration to help it feel different from the other abilities that provide major Resolve and Ward, and make it worth the button press for tanks who wish to spend Stamina in this way.
    • Wrath: This passive ability has been replaced with the Revitalize passive, which increases the resources your Heavy Attacks restore by 12/25%.
    • Rapid Mending: This passive ability no longer increases the amount of resources your Heavy Attacks restore, as that effect has been moved to the new Revitalize passive. It continues to increase your healing received by 4/8%.
      • Developer Comment: We want each of the three armor types to have unique trade-offs. Heavy Armor's main advantage is its increase to survivability, while the disadvantage is its lower damage and healing power. To emphasize this distinction, we've removed the Wrath passive.

Champion System

  • The Tower
    • Siphoner: This champion passive now reduces all resource restore effects on the enemy. This includes potions, item sets, and ability passives.
      • Developer Comments: We wanted this to affect the resource regeneration rate of all builds equally. If we were to increase this to a 25% reduction it would punish high recovery builds a lot and have little effect on builds that rely on other means like potions and heavy armor to get most of their resources back.
Because the Siphoner debuff only lasts 3 seconds, players who are able to use abilities and terrain for well timed disengagement can still get full use of potions.

Combat Fixes & Improvements[edit]

  • Fixed an issue where you could revive and immediately cast the last ability you had queued up right before your character died.

    • Path of Darkness: Fixed an issue where some of the visual effects from this ability and its morphs were not aligned with the actual location of the path.
    • Shadow Cloak: Fixed an issue where casting this ability and its morphs was erroneously displaying the error text “You can't cast that ability right now”.
  • Siphoning
    • Soul Siphon (Soul Shred morph): Fixed an issue where Rank I of this ability had a 10 meter initial radius instead of a 15 meter initial radius.


  • Daedric Summoning
    • Daedric Tomb (Daedric Mines morph): Fixed an issue where the placement of the mines created by this morph were not aligned with your ground-based reticle.
    • Summon Charged Atronach (Summon Storm Atronach morph): The Atronach summoned by this morph will now use one large, point blank area of effect attack instead of five small circular damage zones around it. This should improve the reliability of it hitting targets with that attack.
    • Summon Storm Atronach: Fixed an issue where the Atronach summoned from this ability and its morphs could use its channeled zap attack through walls.
  • Storm Calling
    • Mages' Fury: Fixed an issue where multiple players could not maintain the execute explosion debuff on the same target.

    • Thrive in Chaos (Lacerate morph): Fixed an issue where some of the visual effects of this morph were persisting longer than their actual duration. We also fixed an issue where this morph was displaying incorrect icons in your bufftrackers.
  • Bow
    • Arrow Spray: Fixed an issue where some of the visual effects of this ability and its morphs were not aligned with the actual location of the damage cone.
    • Bombard (Arrow Spray morph): Fixed an issue where the name of the debuff icon applied by this morph was incorrect.
  • Destruction Staff
    • Elemental Ring (Impulse morph): Fixed an issue where this morph was not causing alchemical poisons to proc.


  • Fixed an issue where some armor passives would still function while your gear was broken.


  • Mages Guild
  • Undaunted
    • This skill line now goes up to Rank 10. Unlocking Rank 10 of the skill line grants you the Title "Undaunted". This resolves an issue where some players could increase their Undaunted Skill Line rank beyond the intended maximum.

Alliance War

  • Assault
    • Continuous Attack: The bonus applied by this passive ability is now removed when you leave Cyrodiil.
  • Support
    • Purge: Fixed an issue where the buff applied by this ability and its morphs that reduced the duration of negative effects could stack.

Champion System

  • The Atronach
    • Riposte: Updated this passive ability's tooltip to better indicate its proc condition.

Itemization Balance[edit]

Item Sets

  • The Master and Maelstrom unique enchantments have been rebuilt as Item Sets, with the new Asylum Weapons following suite as an Item Set and not an enchantment. This means you can now safely enchant and re-enchant these weapons, and still gain the special ability-altering benefit.
    • Due to the fact these items can now be enchanted or poisoned normally, their extraneous stat bonuses have been removed. For example, the Maelstrom's Greatsword no longer adds 189 Weapon Damage on top of the modifier to Critical Charge.
  • The Master and Maelstrom One Hand and Shield Item Sets now require you to use both the One Handed Weapon and Shield together. Since the shield did not need to be paired with the One Handed Weapon originally, a brand new shield will be mailed to you for each One Handed Weapon you currently possess.
    • Developer Comments: You will still be able to back bar weapons, such as the Maelstrom Bow or Inferno Staff, and still receive the bonus from them when their abilities are active.
  • Dragonstar and Maelstrom Arena will now drop weapons for their item sets in their final Arenas, in addition to their existing rewards.
    • This means when you complete Dragonstar Arena, in addition to the rewards you already receive, you'll now receive a weapon from the Healer's Habit, Archer's Mind, Footman's Fortune, and Destruction Mastery item sets.
    • In Maelstrom Arena, you'll receive a weapon from the Elemental Succession, Glorious Defender, Hunt Leader, Para Bellum, Permafrost, or Winterborn item sets.
    • These weapons will be blue-quality in Normal mode, and purple-quality on Veteran Mode.
  • Many of The Master and The Maelstrom Item Sets have undergone significant rebalancing:
    • Titanic Cleave (Master 2H): This item set's proc now increases the direct damage Cleave deals by 1500 for each enemy in its cone, up to a maximum of 9000 damage.
    • Puncturing Remedy (Master 1H&S): Increased the heal amount from Puncture to 2500 from 2150, and it now grants you Spell and Physical Resistance equal to the amount healed for 3 seconds.
    • Stinging Slashes (Master DW): Increased the damage bonus to Twin Slashes' bleed to 1500 each tick from 516.
    • Destructive Impact (Master Destro): Increased the damage bonus to Destructive Touch's direct damage to 2000 from 516, and increased the cost reduction to Destructive Touch to 30% from 12%.
    • Rampaging Slash (Maelstrom 1H&S): Your Low Slash will now cause your next fully-charged Heavy Attack used within 5 seconds to restore an additional 2000 Magicka and Stamina.
    • Merciless Charge (Maelstrom 2H): Increased the damage done by this Item Set's proc to 6000 damage over 5 seconds, up from 4300 damage over 5 seconds.
    • Precise Regeneration (Maelstrom Resto): Increased the amount of Magicka restored by Regeneration critical heals to 800 from 481.
  • Clever Alchemist: This item set's proc now requires that you are in combat for it to function.
    • Developer Comments: This solves the issue where some players would activate their potion with this item set, then completely switch their gear to a new item set while retaining the bonus. We want this item set to be used more strategically in the middle of combat, rather than it only being used to one-shot players from stealth.
  • Shadow of the Red Mountain: This item set's proc can no longer target neutral monsters or monsters you are not in combat with.

Itemization Fixes & Improvements[edit]


  • Fixed an issue where the reduction to Spell and Weapon Damage applied by the Weakening Enchantment was being treated as a buff instead of a debuff.
  • Fixed an issue where the visual effects of the Fiery Weapon enchantment were displaying incorrectly.

Item Sets

  • Reduced the intensity and frequency of the visual effects and audio from the following item set's persistent bonus:
  • Defiler: The monster summoned by this Item Set now spawns next to the enemy you critically hit, instead of spawning next to you.
  • Engine Guardian: The beam cast by the Dwemer Sphere summoned from this Item Set will now be hidden if your character is sneaking or invisible.
  • Earthgore: This Item Set's proc will now display a friendly telegraph to your allies.
  • Fasalla's Guile: Fixed an issue where the proc from this Item Set would aggro neutral monsters around you.
  • Selene: Fixed an issue where the telegraph created by the proc of this Item Set would swivel toward its target.
  • Sword-Singer: Fixed an issue where this Item Set's bonus was not modifying the Momentum skill.
  • Torug's Pact: Fixed an issue where this Item Set's bonus was not applying to the Poisoned Weapon enchantment.
