Online: Patch/5.0.1

The UESPWiki – Your source for The Elder Scrolls since 1995
Jump to: navigation, search

Released on April 22 2019.

The Elder Scrolls Online v5.0.1 introduces a new Dungeon Event for testing this week, where you can earn Reward Boxes simply by defeating the final boss of a dungeon. We also have many fixes for Elsweyr content, thanks to your feedback and reports, and improvements for the PvP Artifact Weapon system. Note that for this week, there will be multiple Volendrung's active at once in Cyrodiil to aid with testing.

You'll find in addition to a number of bug fixes for combat abilities, we've also included a few balance changes as well, with more on the way next week based on your feedback and testing. Additionally, we'll be performing a new character copy for PC/Mac NA characters to help address the issue where you'd have to relog to create a Necromancer.

In addition to the Dungeon Event, we'd also like to do a testing event specifically for Dragons in Elsweyr. This will occur on Thursday, April 25, from 2:00-4:00pm EDT. During this time, we'd like everyone to focus on killing as many Dragons as possible so we can watch through livestreams and collect the appropriate data. While you're participating, please also equip the Blue Dragon Imp pet so we can gather some technical data on the pet; you can purchase this from the Crown Store.

We appreciate everyone's feedback so far – keep it coming! You can expect the size of this patch to be approximately 255MB.

New Features / Updates / Big Changes[edit]

Dungeon Event

An upcoming Dungeon Event is currently active to test on the PTS this week. To participate, simply enter a group dungeon with a group by porting to it or walking in, and kill the final bosses to earn Reward Boxes. These boxes contain many valuable rewards like motifs, Crown Riding Lessons, and Monster Weapon Outfit Styles – previously only available in the Crown Store.

  • You can earn a "Dungeon Event Rewards Box, Exceptional" by completing any Dungeon on any difficulty. These are earned once per day, per account.
    • After that, your other characters can earn a "Dungeon Event Rewards Box, Plain" once per day, by completing any Dungeon.
    • Below are the full list of rewards that can be earned from the reward boxes:
  • During the event, you can also earn Shoulder Outfit Style Pages from Undaunted chests.
    • Shadowrend will come from Maj's chest
    • Ilambris and Grothdarr will come from Glirion's chest
    • Molag Kena will come from Urgarlag's chest
  • Additionally, the Mask Outfit Style Pages will drop from their respective bosses on Veteran Mode.
    • Shadowrend will come from Banished Cells I
    • Ilambris from Cyrpt of Hearts I
    • Grothdarr from Vaults of Madness
    • Molag Kena from White-Gold Tower
  • Shadowrend, Ilambris, Molag Kena, and Grothdarr style pages for mask, shoulders, and weapons will also be available from the Impresario during the event, for Event Tickets. Earn your tickets during the event and you can complete your look with the Impresario's offerings.

Template Information[edit]

  • Fixed an issue where the Perfected Tooth of Lokkestiiz item bag, found on template-made characters, was incorrectly named as the non-perfect version of the set.
  • Updated the Character Template to contain the Style Items for Anequina, Coldsnap, Dark Brotherhood, Meridian, and Pellitine styles. (Removed the stack of Black Honeycomb, as well.)
  • The Elsweyr character template now includes knowledge of the Coldsnap, Meridian, Anequina, and Pellitine styles on all new characters created with it.
    • Note: Existing template-made characters will not have this knowledge applied to them.
  • Added a new item to the Character Template: the Treasure Hunter's Parcel. At present, this item contains all Treasure Maps for Elsweyr, including those obtained from the Collector's Edition.
    • In future PTS character templates, the Treasure Maps found in this Parcel may change to reflect the new zone, or the item may simply be unavailable.

Elsweyr Fixes & Improvements[edit]

Art & Animation[edit]


  • Updated the interact camera for Senche-rahts to get them right up in your face.

Combat & Abilities[edit]


  • General
  • Grave Lord
    • Blastbones: Fixed an issue where this ability and its morphs could damage your allies if you died while it was active. Your minions were just so sad that you died they couldn't control themselves.
    • Flesh Colossus:
      • Pestilent Colossus (morph): Fixed an issue where the 2nd and 3rd smash from this attack was not applying Major Vulnerability.

    • Ruinous Scythe: Fixed an issue where this morph was not getting the standard 15% cheaper cost for being a Stamina ability.
      • Developer Comment: We're aware that this morph's ability to constantly apply Healing Absorption allows the Necromancer to quickly deny the defender's healing capabilities, especially when paired with Blighted Blastbones. We are currently investigating better play patterns for this morph to enable.
  • Living Death
    • Reanimate: This ability and its morphs will now require a confirmation to accept the resurrection.
    • Spirit Mender: Fixed an issue where this ability and its morphs' summoned entities would not attempt to face the target they were healing. They have finally come out of their shell and will look you in the eye when healing you.

  • Updated the quest rewards for the following quests:


  • Panolya relocated to the other side of her little garden area so that, if returning to her seat after being attacked, she no longer sits down on air with no chair to support her. Aldmeri core exercises being what they are, she's probably still ripped as hell as a result of that workout.

  • Fixed an issue where you would receive an incorrect error message when using the Alliance Standard-Bearer's License when you did not have ten Emblems.
  • Fixed an issue in which the Siege of Cyrodiil Recognition was being sold for both Gold and Tel Var Stones, rather than just Tel Var Stones.
