Released on May 09 2016.

The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited v2.4.2 is our second incremental patch on the PTS that continues to fix issues across various DLC game packs and the base game patch. We've made several fixes to the Dark Brotherhood skill line and content, in addition to some smaller fixes for the other DLC game packs. In the base game patch, we've made adjustments and improvements to some class abilities and item sets, fixed several issues surrounding poison-making, and more.

In addition, we've copied all PC/Mac European megaserver characters for this patch, and made additional improvements to the existing character templates. Thanks to everyone for your continued feedback and bug reports, and we hope you enjoy this latest patch which is approximately 560MB.

Template Updates[edit]

We've continued to make some improvements to the available character templates:

  • Character templates now have at least one wayshrine unlocked in every non-DLC zone.
  • Added a new item, The Crafter's Rune Crate, to the contents of The Ultimate Crafting Crate. This new crate contains 200 of every type of rune, and there are 10 of these crates in each Ultimate Crafting Crate.
  • Fixed an issue with Chef Donolon's recipe books, contained in the Ultimate Crafter's Crate. These now collectively award all currently-available recipes, as originally advertised.

Known Issues[edit]

Combat & Gameplay[edit]

General

  • There may be instances where it appears as though you're infinitely roll dodging. You're rolling, but you're not actually dodging.
  • Mundus Stone buffs are appearing as though they are ten times their expected value on the Character UI. This is strictly a UI error.
  • The Sturdy trait's block cost reduction is currently a multiplicative bonus with itself, rather than an additive.

Crafting & Economy[edit]

Poison-Making

  • Gradual Damage Health and Gradual Health Drain poisons currently deal a single tick of damage, instead of continuing to apply damage for the full duration of the effect.
  • Cloudy poisons currently apply for a much shorter duration than intended.
  • Ravage Stamina and Ravage Magicka poisons are only increasing costs by 30%, instead of the intended 60% cost increase.
  • The tooltips for Resolve-Draining Poisons and Potions of Ravage Armor currently indicate that Minor Fracture reduces Armor, instead of Physical Resistance.
  • Prophecy-Draining poisons created with three matching reagents are currently much less effective at reducing your target's Spell Critical than intended.
  • In several cases, applying two different poisons to your target will result in the first poison being overwritten by the second poison. * This is not intended, and all different poison types will be able to coexist on the same target in a future patch.

Exploration & Itemization[edit]

Item Sets

  • Vicious Ophidian: This item set is currently not granting the Major Expedition buff.
