Elder Scrolls Online just received its latest chapter, Blackwood, yesterday on PC, Mac, and Stadia. Alongside Blackwood, Update 30 also released and brought several bug fixes. However, PvP received item set bonuses returning, in addition to free champion points respec.

If you recall, item set bonuses were disabled due to performance issues in ESO’s PvP. It was announced these sets would remain disabled until Update 30. Well, Update 30 has now arrived,

  • Item sets that proc events that deal damage or heal now scale similarly to abilities, based on specific stats, which will now be called out in the tooltip. Check each section to see which sets scale with what! The following scaling methods are currently available, which may expand or change in the future:
    • Damage focused proc-based events will scale with the higher of your Weapon or Spell Damage.
      • You must have 6,574 Weapon or Spell Damage to reach the original value of many sets.
    • Healing focused proc-based events will scale with the higher of your Max Magicka or Stamina.
      • You must have 39,901 Max Magicka or Stamina to reach the original value of many sets.
    • Tanking focused proc-based events will either scale with your Max Health, and in some rare cases, will use the higher of your Physical or Spell Resistance.
      • You must have 43,968 Max Health or 30,680 Physical or Spell Resistance to reach the original value of many sets.

Additionally, a free Champion Point respec is taking place for the next two weeks. Some additional quality of life improvements include timers for your ability bars, bankable outfit style pages, in addition new items like new Monster Masks, and more.
