Patch Notes v1.2.4

Monday, June 30th 2014 saw Patch 1.2.4 drop on the Elder Scrolls Online client. Here is the quick list from the overview of interested changes:

  • Fix for FPS drop in Cyrodiil
  • Stealth breaking after a weapon swap
  • First Person Perspective While Swimming (Not included on these notes)
  • Fix to Sliver Bolts

The fix to Sliver Bolts came with this update, from Assistant Community Manager, Gina Bruno:

Just edited the note regarding Silver Bolts to clarify that the 100% proc rate against werewolves is not intended, and will be fixed next week. Apologies for any confusion this may have caused! 

 

OVERVIEW

The Elder Scrolls Online v1.2.4 is an incremental patch featuring fixes to gameplay and quests, including a fix for Silver Bolts, the sudden drop in FPS that you’re seeing in Cyrodiil, and weapon swapping breaking stealth.

FIXES & IMPROVEMENTS

Alliance War
General

  • Fixed an issue where you were not being teleported back to your alliance’s starting area when entering the Northern Morrowind Gate or the Southern High Rock Gate.
  • Fixed an issue where you were not getting killed properly when passing through the scroll gates before your alliance owned the appropriate keeps.

Combat & Gameplay
General

  • Weapon swapping with an equipped item set no longer breaks stealth.
  • Knocking back an enemy while they are in the air no longer causes them to die instantly from fall damage.
  • Removed an erroneously placed crowd-control break from the Ravager.

Guilds

  • Fighters Guild
    • Silver Bolts: With one exception as noted below, we fixed an issue so this ability no longer has a 100% proc chance after Skilled Tracker is purchased.
      • Known Issue: This ability works properly against all vampires and werewolves in human form. However, if you are specifically in werewolf form, this ability will still proc at 100%. This is not intended, and will be fixed next week.

Weapons

  • Restoration Staff
    • Grand Healing: Fixed an issue where using this ability would significantly reduce your game’s performance. This fix will help alleviate the sudden FPS drop some of you encountered after we released v1.2.3.
    • Regeneration: Fixed an issue where using this ability would significantly reduce your game’s performance.

Alliance War

  • Assault
    • Rapid Maneuver: Fixed an issue where this ability was not working while mounted. We also fixed an issue where using this ability would reduce your game’s performance when hitting multiple targets.

Dungeons & Group Content
