Released on June 17 2019.
The Elder Scrolls Online v5.0.9 includes fixes for some quests, the Frozen Colossus ability, allows you to again unsheathe your weapons when pressing light attack, and more. We’ve also updated the Terms of Service, with high-level changes outlined below.
In this patch, we’ve re-enabled the in-game portion of guild history, but the addon functionality that uses the guild history remains off for now. This is still a temporary solution until we are able to implement a better, more permanent fix. You should be able to view the past 10 days of guild history when you log in.
The size of this patch is approximately 147MB.
Elsweyr Fixes & Improvements
Combat & Gameplay
- Grave Lord
- Frozen Colossus: Fixed an issue where this ability and its morphs had a 1-second delay before they displayed a hostile telegraph to enemy players. It will now display a hostile circle telegraph in the area the colossus is going to smash, the moment the ability is cast.
- Improved window lighting for homes in Elsweyr.
