ESO 1.38 Patch Notes for PS4

Wolfhunter DLC Game Pack

Two New Dungeons

  • Moon Hunter Keep: The Moon Hunter Keep was once the Colovian headquarters of the Order of the Silver Dawn, a group of peerless werewolf hunters found in western Tamriel. It was destroyed by the ancient werewolf Vykosa, who then took up residence at the estate. At first she merely turned the hunters against each other, each competing for the prize of joining her pack, but now she draws in werewolves from distant lands to vie for her favor. Imprisoned in the foul cells below the keep, Adonatus Varian must seek your help to eradicate Vykosa’s evil werewolf followers and remove her influence from the land before it spreads.
  • March of Sacrifices: The March of Sacrifices is a section of the Hunting Grounds where mortals compete in teams for a boon from Hircine. It’s a deep ravine surrounded by impassable mountains, and populated with the most ferocious creatures of Hircine’s realm. The hunt quarry is a massive and powerful indrik imbued with special powers from the Daedric Prince himself. If a mortal manages to fell the beast and retrieve its glowing red heart, they may petition Hircine for a boon. This hunt is open to any mortal, but is rarely undertaken by any who are not a follower of Hircine. The competition is bloody, but for the foolish and incredibly desperate, Hircine’s game is a tantalizing opportunity to win a favor from the Prince.
  • Moon Hunter Keep and March of Sacrifices are 4-player dungeons that are reached via Reaper’s March and Greenshade, respectively.
    • Moon Hunter Keep’s entrance is in northern Reaper’s March, northwest of Arenthia.
    • March of Sacrifices’ entrance is a shrine to Hircine in Western Greenshade, north of Woodhearth.
  • Both Dungeons include a Normal version in addition to a challenging Veteran version.
  • There are a number of rewards for each dungeon, including the following:
    • Unique item sets, including two new Undaunted Monster Mask sets, only available within the dungeons
    • Unique Achievement awards for completing the dungeons
    • A unique player Skin
    • A unique Memento
    • Several Titles
    • Unique housing items

New Collectibles & Furnishings

  • Sable Man-Beast Skin: Only those who have completed the “Moon Hunter Keep Challenger” achievement, by completing the most difficult tasks in Moon Hunter Keep, can proudly display this Skin.

Base Game Changes in ESO 1.38

New Battleground Map – Istirus Outpost
A new Battleground has been introduced – Istirus! Built late in the Second Empire to control the chronic pirate problem on the Strid River, the Istirus Outpost has become a forgotten relic since the outbreak of the Three Banners War with its dwindling resources fought over by all sides.

Istirus is a semi asymmetrical map that also allows players to mount!

Keep Recall Stones
We’ve added a new method of navigating Cyrodiil! Keep Recall Stones are new items you use from your inventory or quickslot wheel to recall to a Keep or Outpost. These can be purchased for 20,000 AP or earned from Rewards of the Worthy. There are several restrictions in place to use these items:

  • You cannot recall to a structure that is under attack (shown on the UI as a starburst icon).
  • You cannot recall to a structure while standing inside the region of a Keep, Resource, Outpost or Town.
  • You cannot use a Recall Stone while actively in combat.
  • Recall Stones can be used while in Caves of Cyrodiil, but not in the Imperial City.
  • Recall Stones are account bound, so they can be banked but not traded to other players.
  • You cannot use a Recall Stone while carrying an Elder Scroll.

Battlegrounds Outfit Styles
ESO update 1.38 added new Outfit Styles to Battlegrounds! Now, when you complete a Battleground, you have a chance to obtain an Outfit Style for the Pit Demons, Storm Lords, and Fire Drakes’ unique armor appearances.

  • Pit Demons Outfit Styles are obtained by completing Deathmatch games.
  • Storm Lords Outfit Styles are obtained by completing Flag Games (Capture the Relic, Chaosball).
  • Fire Drakes Outfit Styles are obtained by completing Land Grabs (Domination, Crazy King).
  • The chance of obtaining an Outfit Style is based on how well your team performed in the Battleground.
    • Victors have a much higher chance to obtain an Outfit Style than do second-place finishers, and second-place finishers have a much better chance than do third-place finishers. However, even teams coming in dead last have a small chance to obtain an Outfit Style.
    • The medals you obtain do not affect your chances at all – so you don’t have to be fancy, just try to be victorious!
    • Placing on the Leaderboards for Battlegrounds also has a very good chance to award an Outfit Style from each of the three teams’ armor visuals.

New PvP Collectible
The new Arena Gladiator Costume is now available, to those who would conquer their foes mercilessly. Simply collect 50 Arena Gladiator Proofs (found by completing the Conquest dailies in Cyrodiil) and purchase an Arena Gladiator’s Exultation from a War Researcher for 10,000 AP. Use the Exultation, and it will consume the 50 Proofs and create a Runebox of the Arena Gladiator Costume.

Respec System Updates
We’ve updated the player ability respec system so activating respec mode no longer clears all of your points, but instead allows you to add and remove points from your abilities. You’ll still have the option to remove all points if you want a fresh start, though. We’ve also retained the morph-only option; for a reduced price, you can add and subtract any ability morphs.

  • Anyone who loses a skill tree, such as vampire or werewolf, will now have all skill points in the associated tree refunded.
    • This will also apply retroactively.
  • Anyone who previously removed one of these skill trees will have their additional skill points returned upon login.
  • All of these changes will apply to rededication shrines and Skill Respecification Scrolls from the Crown Store.

Welkynar Style Item
The Welkynar Style Item, Gryphon Plumes, is now available from Cloudrest Trial. This Style Item is proudly worn by the gryphon-riding Welkynar themselves, and now you can earn the right to wear and craft this armor too – if you can defeat Z’Maja.

  • You can earn Gryphon Plumes by defeating Z’Maja; more are earned by defeating her on harder difficulties, and she will not drop any Plumes unless fought on Veteran mode, or on Normal mode with all of her Welkynar Shade allies. The amount of Gryphon Plumes dropped is not randomized, but is based on the configuration of the final boss fight – the harder the fight, the more Plumes you’ll obtain.

TABLE IMAGE

  • Note that the Welkynar Style Motif will become available in a future patch, starting September 12 at 2pm UTC.

Champion Point Increase
The Champion Point cap has been raised by a total of 30 points (10 in each red/blue/green constellation) for a total of 780 Champion Points. The Champion Point experience curve has been automatically adjusted with this new cap, so that earlier Champion Points require less experience and can be earned faster.

Ability Changes Overview
We’ve made numerous ability changes with this latest update – some with global implications, while others are specific tweaks and quality of life changes. Some of our major goals with these changes include:

  • Improving the Werewolf gameplay and quality of life: Several abilities received significant adjustments, leveling the skill line is considerably easier, and Werewolves are now capable of doing more core combat actions such as resurrecting or using synergies.
  • Reducing the duration of snare and defile effects: Abilities and Item Sets that apply snares or defile debuffs on enemies have had their durations significantly reduced. Since most of the changes were made to damage over time abilities, you will have to recast those abilities earlier to keep an enemy permanently snared, which sacrifices some damage. Most area of effect snaring abilities were untouched, though, since the counterplay is just to move out of the area of effect.
  • Increasing the viability of some older Item Sets: A few Item Sets have received some dramatic redesigns, while others were simply buffed to improve their usage.

General

  • Increased the Movement Speed of all Monsters summoned from your abilities and Item Sets by 25%.
