Released on June 29 2015.
The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited v2.0.12 is an incremental patch that includes many audio improvements and polish. Due to this, the size of the patch will be significantly larger than normal at approximately 5GB for English, 6.5GB for German, and 7.4GB for French. In addition, we're also adding battle leveled consumables, which you can read more about below, and a handful of fixes to outstanding issues.
BIG CHANGES / UPDATES / NEW FEATURES
Battle Leveled Consumables
In order for lower-level player characters to have a better chance of survival in Cyrodiil, we're introducing a way for items to scale their health or buff based on whether or not you are battle leveled. Battle leveling is a system that applies when you enter Cyrodiil. When you enter a campaign in Cyrodiil, regardless of whether that campaign is Veteran or non-Veteran, you are always treated as level 50 at a minimum.
- If you go to Cyrodiil at level 10, for example, you will be battle leveled to 50; your potions will be battle leveled too, and heal as though they were level 50 potions. If you level up while in Cyrodill, you would technically be level 11, but still effectively level 50 through battle leveling. Your potions would still heal as though they were level 50 potions.
- If you gain enough experience to make it to level 20 (hitting the next level bracket), you would still be battle leveled to 50. However, your potions would then be ten levels out of date and become slightly less effective as you move into the next level bracket. Rather than healing you as though they were level 50 potions, they would heal you at a reduced rate – still decent, but not as good as a level 20 potion.
