Jump to: navigation, search

Released on October 12 2015.

The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited v2.2.1 is an incremental patch for the PTS that addresses a number of issues in Wrothgar, Malestrom Arena, and Old Orsinium. We've also made fixes to the base game patch for gameplay, crafting, itemization, UI, and more.

While this patch does not address the current issues with monsters having 50% more mitigation or ability cost being higher than intended, they will be fixed in patch 2.2.2.

The size of this patch is approximately 5.9GB for English, and 5GB for German and French. Thanks to everyone for your feedback and bug reports so far, and we look forward to seeing what you think of this latest patch!

Available Templates[edit]

We've updated the Veteran Rank 14 templates to be Veteran Rank 16. Note: The gear for these templates has not changed. New item sets and weapons from Orsinium will be added for testing in a future PTS patch.

Art & Animation[edit]

General

  • NPCs will now return to their correct sitting position after you attack them.

Combat & Gameplay[edit]

General

  • Fixed an issue where several damage over time effects were not allowing multiple casters to apply their own stack. For example, previously if two player characters cast Scalding Rune at the same target, only one of those effects would apply damage over time to the target. This is now corrected for the following abilities:
  • You can no longer resurrect an ally while you are hidden or invisible.
  • Anyone with more than 501 Champion Points on their account will have their points reset when first logging in, to ensure they are under the new Champion Point cap.

Templar

  • Dawn's Wrath
    • Sun Shield: Fixed an issue which was preventing this ability's per hit increase percentage from showing in the tooltip.

    • Force Shock: Fixed an issue where this ability's shock and frost damage was delayed slightly after the fire damage.

Harvesting

  • Heavy sacks found in group dungeons now have a chance to drop ore, wood, cloth, leather, and potency runes, in addition to their current drops.
    • Heavy sacks located in the Imperial City, Cyrodiil, group dungeons, and Wrothgar will now largely drop materials based on your passive crafting abilities.
      • For example, a blacksmith with rank 1 Metalworking might obtain iron ore in Cyrodiil. If that blacksmith upgrades their Metalworking passive to rank 2, they will no longer obtain the lower rank material, and start obtaining high iron ore in its place.
