Combat & Gameplay[edit]

Combat Balance[edit]

Developer Comment - Block and Dodge Rulesets: We've updated several abilities so they better adhere to our block and dodge mechanics. The system is set up to be intuitive – attacks on the ground such as fire or Caltrops cannot be blocked or dodged. We also want dodging to be useful during some instances, and blocking to be useful at other times. The ruleset is as follows:

  • Attacks that can be blocked, but not dodged
    • AoE explosions such as Radial Sweep, Spear Shards' initial hit, or Drain Power.
    • Beam attacks such as Radiant Destruction, Lightning Staff, or Soul Strike.
  • Attacks that cannot be blocked or dodged
    • Damage on the ground such as Wall of Elements, Caltrops, or Lightning Splash.
    • Effects that are on or inside a player character, such as Daedric Curse, or Backlash. (Damage over time effects)
  • Attacks that can be dodged, but not blocked
    • Secondary effects that penetrate Block such as the Damage over Time from Sunfire, the surprise attack armor debuff, or the snare from Low Slash snare.
    • Note: Block continues to provide stun immunity, so it will stop a secondary effect like the stun from Stonefist.
  • Exceptions to these rules will be stated each ability's tooltip, such as Fiery Grip which cannot be dodged or reflected.


  • Adjusted the length of time bosses are immune to the Off Balance debuff to 15 seconds, previously 15 to 20 seconds.
    • Developer Comment: We want to make it easier to predict when the Off Balance debuff will occur. Since Off Balance is typically random, this will reduce the number of random factors surrounding the frequency of Off Balance occurrences. The predictability will make it easier to respond to Off Balance with a specific high-damage ability or a Heavy Attack.
  • Standardized Off Balance across the game so that all applicable abilities and procs apply the effect for 5 seconds.
    • Developer Comment: This will unify the Off Balance mechanic into a consistent experience. You now have the same amount of time to take advantage of a target being Off Balance, regardless of which ability activated the effect.
  • Synergies now have a 20 second cooldown for each individual Synergy, reduced down from 30 seconds.
    • Developer Comment: In order to better support our fast-paced combat, we've reverted the Synergy cooldown back to 20 seconds. This also means players utilizing Synergies such as Spear Shards can expect the same rate of return they are accustomed to.


  • Ardent Flame
    • Searing Strike: The initial direct damage from this ability and its morphs can now be blocked and dodged.


  • Assassination
    • Assassin's Blade: The damage from this ability and its morphs can now be blocked and dodged.



  • Two Handed
    • Cleave: The initial direct damage from this ability and its morphs can now be blocked, but cannot be dodged.
  • One Hand and Shield
    • Low Slash: Reduced the duration of the snare applied by this ability and its morphs to 4 seconds from 12 seconds.
      • Developer Comment: Powerful snares should have a short duration, while weaker snares should have a long duration; Low Slash fell outside of this ruleset and needed to be adjusted. We have plans to do a more comprehensive pass on snare durations in the future.
  • Dual Wield
    • Whirlwind: The damage from this ability and its morphs can now be blocked, but cannot be dodged.


  • Vampire

Combat Fixes & Improvements[edit]


  • Assassination
    • Relentless Focus (Grim Focus morph): Fixed an issue where Rank IV of this morph was generating multiple stacks of the Merciless Resolve buff for a single Light or Heavy Attack.
  • Siphoning
    • Strife: Fixed an issue where the heal over time from this ability and its morphs would still apply to you even if the enemy dodged the attack.


  • One Hand & Shield
    • Low Slash: Fixed an issue where the snare from this ability and its morphs could be blocked.

Alliance War

  • Assault
    • Razor Caltrops (Caltrops morph): Fixed an issue where the initial direct damage from this morph had a radius of 12 meters, instead of the intended 8 meter radius.

  • Added the ability to search for the various Elven Outfit Styles via their -mer names. For example, the High Elf style will now also appear when searching for "Altmer".

Exploration & Itemization[edit]


  • Fixed an issue where Unidentified Enchantment boxes, from the Slithering Brood and The Serpent's Fang quests, would not provide any rewards to characters lower than Level 10. They now provide a purple-quality enchantment to characters of any level.


  • The Fully Styled achievement now states that you must fill "any" 8 slots (not "all" 8 slots, as previously).
