Released on September 26 2016.

The Elder Scrolls Online v2.6.3 is the last incremental patch on the PTS. We've continued to fix issues involving itemization and gameplay, and have improved the overall stability of the client. While we've fixed some minor bugs with Crown Crates, most of the planned improvements mentioned in this post have not yet been implemented; you can expect to see these changes when Crown Crates are released later this year.

Thanks to everyone for your continued feedback and bug reports. We appreciate everything that you've taken the time to write and submit. The size of this final patch is approximately 174MB, and we look forward to seeing you in One Tamriel next week!
