Note: Many of the fixes in this patch failed to be deployed and were re-issued in 1.5.4. These are struck through.

Released on November 10 2014.


The Elder Scrolls Online v1.5.3 fixes a number of issues that appeared after Update 5 was published. This includes issues within combat, crafting writs, dungeons, UI, and more. We have also increased the amount of XP you receive from lower-level monsters, which should alleviate the feeling of slow leveling within Veteran Ranks. We are aware that there are still issues surrounding the LFG tool, and are still working on a fix for this.


Alliance War[edit]


Art & Animation[edit]


  • Fixed an issue where the emote /leanbackcoin would not properly animate.

Combat & Gameplay[edit]


  • Fixed an issue where weapon swapping was removing stealth.
  • Fixed an issue where you would raise your fists instead of holding your weapon after equipping certain kinds of weapons.



  • Restoration Staff
    • Healing Ward (Steadfast Ward morph): Fixed an issue where the shield heal from this ability was being applied when you refreshed the ability. It now correctly only applies the heal if the shield duration expires.
  • Two Hand
    • Momentum: Fixed an issue where the heal from this ability could be blocked or dodged.


  • In preparation for the Champion System, we have increased the XP granted to you for killing lower rank monsters:
    • You will receive full credit for monsters 1-3 ranks below you.
    • You will receive 75% of XP for monsters 4 ranks below you.
    • You will receive 30% of XP for monsters 5 or more ranks below you.
    • Note: This does not affect levels 1-50.

Crafting & Economy[edit]


  • Fixed an issue that was preventing you from speaking with one crafting trainer after talking to the other.


  • Fixed an issue that was causing Nirnhoned trait stones to drop more frequently from Ore Survey Reports in Craglorn, and too rarely for Cloth Survey Reports in Craglorn than intended.
  • Fixed an issue that could prevent items from being tracked correctly during some crafting writ quests.
  • Fixed an issue where high-end Clothier Writ rewards were not giving the correct tier of Repair Kit. Clothier's Satchel VII - IX will now give Grand Repair Kits.
  • Increased the gold rewards you receive for Crafting Writs.
  • Crafting writs will no longer ask you to deliver to other dimensions unless you have reasonable means to reach them (such as Coldharbour).
  • There will now be only one Hazzeine within Belkarth.

Dungeons & Group Content[edit]


  • Increased the Undaunted Reputation reward for completing Undaunted Pledges at Silver and Gold reward levels.


  • Monsters that became excessively weak after Update 5 was published have been restored to their previous levels of power.

Dragonstar Arena

  • Monsters that became excessively weak after Update 5 was published have been restored to their previous levels of power.


  • Sanctum Ophidia
    • Restored the health for the Serpent's Image in Sanctum Ophidia to the intended levels.

Veteran Dungeons

  • Veteran Darkshade Caverns
    • This dungeon now properly awards the speed run achievement for killing all bosses and minibosses in the dungeon in less than 20 minutes.

Exploration & Itemization[edit]


  • Lootable objects found within items such as urns, crates, sacks, or dressers in delves, will now respawn more quickly as you travel from delve to delve.
    • Note: Lootable objects can and will still be depleted, but the duration between them regenerating has been reduced and the recovery rate has been increased.



  • Expiration of CoD mail and attachments will now take place even if the recipient does not log in.
  • Fixed an issue where you could crash while grouped with others.
  • Fixed an issue related to particle effects where you could crash while in combat.

Quests & Zones[edit]

Reaper's March

  • Grim Situation: Shazah will no longer stop cleansing the corruption if an enemy gets stuck.
  • To Dune: You will no longer be prevented from turning in this quest if it was shared with you from another player character, and you also completed the quest Fires of Dune.


  • Peril at the Pools: You will no longer get into a situation where Dedras's conversation cannot be advanced.


  • Wayrest: Grigitte Dailon is no longer naked and bald.



  • Combining items into a stack in your inventory will now properly update quests, including crafting certifications and writs.
  • The tooltip for the experience bar in UI windows will now properly display XP instead of VP.
  • Fixed an issue where guild traders would initially display your last searched guild store instead of the proper guild store.
