Released on July 11 2016.

The Elder Scrolls Online v2.5.2 is our latest incremental on the PTS that continues to address issues found in the latest DLC game pack, Shadows of the Hist. We’ve also made several fixes and updates to the base game patch including additional changes to racial passives, tradeable bind-on-pickup items, and more.

In this patch, we’ve copied all characters from the PC European megaserver. The size of the patch is approximately 370MB.

New Features / Updates / Big Changes[edit]

Itemization Updates in Trials[edit]

We've updated the itemization in the Aetherian Archive and Hel Ra Citadel Trials. Previously, the sets that these Trials were intended to drop were switched (Hel Ra dropped the sets that Aetherian Archive was intended to drop, and vice-versa). This has now been fixed. The Stygian set, which is currently found in Hel Ra Citadel, has been replaced with the Hide of the Werewolf set. The Necromancer set has been removed from the drops in question, and will not be sourced from either Trial. It will, however, be sourced in a different way in a future update. Below are the sets that can be sourced from each Trial: Aetherian Archive Darkstride Ice Furnace Necropotence Storm Knight Warlock Werewolf Hide Hel Ra Citadel Akaviri Dragonguard Nikulas Red Mountain Salvation Silks of the Sun Syrabane’s Grip
