The Road Ahead Takes a Look at Update 5 -

The latest Road Ahead article has been published on The Elder Scrolls Online site. In this edition, players are given a forward look at Update 5 which is currently live on the Public Test Server. Several of the update's key features have been spotlighted and players have been provided the link to the current patch notes to check out what's next.

Update 5 is on the PTS and ready for testing right now! It’s a big update that contains a Veteran Dungeon, a new system of repeatable Pledges and Writs for dungeons and crafting, our new facial animation system and fixes for player separation when questing in a group. Here are some more details:

  • A new Veteran Dungeon: City of Ash continues the dungeon’s story and introduces dangerous new challenges for your group.
  • The new facial animation system makes NPCs far more lifelike during conversations.
  • Repeatable Pledges: The Undaunted now reward players once a day for specific dungeon runs with special loot and trophies.
  • Repeatable Writs: You’ll be able to obtain certification in your crafting skills and then complete Writs for inspiration, materials, and special Survey Reports that will lead you to high-yield harvesting nodes.
  • Dungeon level scaling: Dungeons’ enemies and rewards will scale to the level of the group leader, giving you more chances to group up, experience a challenge, and get appropriate rewards.
  • More player separation fixes: More quests will be streamlined so you aren’t separated from your group members as often while adventuring.

Lastly, several details are revealed about what the team is working on for the next update. Several quality of life issues and features are being explored, including performance and stability improvements, increasing framerate by giving players the ability to tone down visual effects. The team is also culling through reports of players taking advantage of exploits and working through balancing the game, always an ongoing process.
