    OVERVIEW
    Welcome to The Elder Scrolls Online v2.5.0. We know you’ve been waiting to re-customize your characters, and we have added even more options for this.

    Similar to previous ones, this update comes in two parts–a DLC Dungeon Pack and the base game patch. The base game patch will be available to everyone who owns The Elder Scrolls Online and the DLC Dungeon Pack will automatically download with it, allowing you instant access to the new content when you purchase it, or activate an ESO Plus membership.

    Anyone who owns ESO and has an active ESO Plus membership will also automatically have access to the Shadows of the Hist DLC Dungeon Pack and the free costume dyes. If your ESO Plus membership ends or lapses, you will no longer have access to the DLC Dungeon Pack content and areas, but you will still have any items you earned while you had access. Any dyed costumes will retain their applied dyes.

    If you do not have an active ESO Plus membership you can purchase the DLC Dungeon Pack for 1,500 crowns via the in-game Crown Store.

    Get ready to conquer two all-new 4 player dungeons, with all the features, challenges, and rewards they have to offer. Or test your skills in the improved Trials Hel Ra Citadel and Aetherian Archive or the Dragonstar Arena in the base game patch.

    Look fabulous while adventuring with the new character customization features and the new name, race, and appearance change services in the Style Parlor. Capture towns in Cyrodiil, enjoy improved Undaunted loot, or dig into the re-balances racial passives.

    In addition to all the new features and major updates, we have made many fixes and improvements to existing content.

    We hope you enjoy our latest update, which will be approximately 5.6GB in size, and look forward to reading your feedback about Update 11 and Shadows of the Hist!

    Shadows of the Hist DLC Dungeon Pack

    Two New Dungeons!
    Grab three friends and prepare to take on the Cradle of Shadows and Ruins of Mazzatun, two all-new Argonian-themed dungeons that make up the Shadows of the Hist DLC Dungeon Pack. These dungeons scale to the group leader’s level, just like every other dungeon in ESO, and offer a Normal and Veteran mode and new item sets to collect. Here are a few details about each:

    Cradle of Shadows
    The Argonians of the Dark Brotherhood need your help against a cadre of rogue assassins who threaten to hurl all of Black Marsh into bloody chaos. Fight your way into the Cradle of Shadows to uncloak the secrets of the twisted Silken Ring!

    The Cradle of Shadows dungeon features three new item sets, challenging new achievements with an appearance reward, and a new monster mask set.

    Ruins of Mazzatun
    Venture into Mazzatun, the “Puzzle City” of the Xit-Xaht tribe of Argonians, who have been forcing other Lizardfolk to work as slave labor on a project that has driven their masters mad! Can you free them in time?

    The Ruins of Mazzatun dungeon features three new item sets, challenging new achievements with an appearance reward, and a new monster mask set.

    New Title
    In Update 11, you’ll be able to obtain three new titles. One is available exclusively from the Shadows of the Hist dungeons. The other two are available by completing Trials. (See the Base Game Patch New Features for details.)

    • Hist-Shadow: Complete Veteran Cradle of Shadows and Veteran Ruins of Mazzatun to earn this title.

    New Monster Mask Sets
    Two new Monster Mask sets are being introduced in Update 11—both are attainable in the new Shadows of the Hist dungeons. The Mighty Chudan Monster Mask set is available in the Ruins of Mazzatun, and the Velidreth Monster Mask set is available in the Cradle of Shadows.

    New Item Sets
    There are six new item sets being introduced in Update 11. Here are the details:

    • Three new sets are available from the Ruins of Mazzatun dungeon that comes with the Shadows of the Hist DLC Dungeon Pack.
      • Amberplasm
      • Aspect of Mazzatun
      • Heem-Jas’ Retribution
    • Three new sets are available from the Cradle of Shadows dungeon that comes with the Shadows of the Hist DLC Dungeon Pack.
      • Gossamer
      • Hand of Mephala
      • Widowmaker

    Shadows of the Hist Loyalty Reward: Drunk Personality
    A new “Drunk” collectible personality is available by purchasing the Shadows of the Hist DLC Dungeon Pack and visiting either the Cradle of Shadows or Ruins of Mazzatun! Using this personality will allow you to take on a new inebriated attitude by changing the way you stand, move, and even emote.

    Dark Brotherhood
    New Motifs

    • Akatosh
      • The Chapters (or rarely, the full Book) are occasionally found in the reward for the Daily Quest to defeat the champions of the Kvatch Arena.
      • Pearl Sand, the style item for the Akatosh style, is guaranteed to come from that same Daily Quest reward. It also occasionally drops from those bosses. Grains of Pearl Sand, the raw version of the style item, can be found in resource nodes throughout the Gold Coast. Your chance of obtaining Grains of Pearl Sand increases with your knowledge of the style.
    • Dark Brotherhood
      • The Chapters (or rarely, the full Book) are available by completing Sacraments for the Dark Brotherhood. The better your performance, the more likely you are to obtain a piece of the Motif.
      • Black Beeswax, the style item for the Dark Brotherhood style, is occasionally obtained by completing Contracts for the Dark Brotherhood.
    • Minotaur
      • The Chapters (or rarely, the full Book) are occasionally found in the reward for the Daily Quest to kill Limenauruus, the giant Minotaur, in the Gold Coast.
      • Oxblood Fungus, the Style Item for the Minotaur style, is guaranteed to come from that same Daily Quest reward. It also occasionally drops from that boss. Oxblood Fungus Spores, the raw version of the style item, can be found by killing lesser Minotaurs all throughout the Gold Coast. Your chance of obtaining Oxblood Fungus Spores increases with your knowledge of the style.

     

    NEW FEATURES / UPDATES / BIG CHANGES

    • Both Trials now feature a Normal and Veteran version.
    • Monsters have had their difficulty increased as well as their rewards.
    • Items and Weapon Sets obtained in the Trial have been updated to scale up to max level, which is Champion 160.
    • Both Trials will scale to the level of the Trial leader, much like Dungeons do currently.
    • When you start the Trial at max level (Champion 160) in Veteran mode, you will qualify for the Leaderboards.

      • Akaviri Dragonguard

      • Necropotence
      • Storm Knight
      • Stygian

    Name Change (Crown Store)
    Players can now change their character’s names using Name Change tokens from the Crown Store! Once purchased these tokens may be utilized at the character select screen to select a new name for one character. The token will not be consumed until a valid name is successfully chosen, and players canceling the change will retain their token accordingly.

    Appearance and Race Change (Crown Store)
    In addition to changing character names, you can now change your characters’ appearance as well as their race. Appearance and Race Change Tokens are available through the Crown Store and as with Name Change Tokens, these may be utilized at the character select screen. Appearance change allows for complete modification of the character’s appearance, including but not limited to hair styles and colors, adornments, face and body markings, facial features, eye color, age, body and face shape, as well as selected voice.

    Race Change Tokens take this a step further, allowing for the character to become any valid available race for the character and account. (Note: The Imperial Race and the Any Race, Any Alliance upgrades may be required in some circumstances.) When changing your character’s race, any Skill Points spent on the Racial Skill Line will be refunded and the progress made in that Skill Line will be transferred to the new race.

    Cyrodiil Town Capture
    Introducing the long-requested addition of captureable towns in Cyrodiil! Cropsford, Vlastarus, and Bruma will be available for capture, offering players a new place to battle over. Each town contains three flags to control, with varying degrees of guards at each flag. One flag has no guards at all, one has a few nearby with merchants, and another is fully guarded much like the Imperial City District flags. Ownership of a town grants that Alliance another place to respawn from PVP deaths, as well as access to town merchants that sell purple-quality gear set pieces for Alliance Points.

    We look forward to watching battles in these towns and expect the gameplay here to provide a different offering than the style of combat found at Keeps and Resources. Have fun out there, and we’ll see you on the battlefield!

    Champion Points
    The Champion Point cap has been raised by a total of 30 points (10 in each red/blue/green constellation). 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.

    Racial Passive Abilities
    To support the new Race Change feature, racial passive abilities for each race have been adjusted and rebalanced. Each race now has a flavorful and thematic non-combat bonus added to the first free passive ability of their skill line. Weaker passive abilities have been also improved to help with the overall combat viability and balance of each race. Please see the Base Game Patch Combat & Gameplay notes for full details.

    Undaunted Chests Improvements
    We’ve improved the rewards from the Undaunted chests! Now, the items you obtain from these chests will always scale all the way up to your current level and Champion Rank. We’ve also increased the availability of Monster Set Shoulder items in these chests: You will always find a Monster Set Shoulder piece in the Gold chest, often in the Silver chest, and occasionally in the Bronze chest.

    Leather Material from Clothier Surveys
    Clothier Survey sites of all tiers now include a small number of a new Furrier Trap harvest node, which can only be found at these locations. These Furrier Traps may be harvested for raw leather material at the same tier as the clothier plant nodes.

    New Achievements
    Update 11 introduces new achievements for the Shadows of the Hist dungeons—Cradle of Shadows and Ruins of Mazzatun—and the scaled Trials.

    Ability Tooltip Tags
    Several abilities will now display the primary role (tank, healer, damage) for which they are best suited.

    World Building
    A few new buildings were added to several zones, and the zone maps were updated accordingly. These buildings are not accessible at this time. In some of these locations, wildlife, and/or bystanders were removed or adjusted to make way for the new construction. In addition, some residents have been moved from their homes, and those buildings are no longer accessible. These changes are in preparation for the upcoming release of Player Housing.

    Console Text Chat (Partially on PTS)
    The addition of text chat for console versions of ESO is partially on the PTS with the release of this patch, as a new “Text Chat” menu in the Gamepad UI.

    New Motif
    One new crafting motif is available from the Maw of Lorkhaj.

    • Dro-m’Athra
      • The Chapters (or rarely, the full Book) are available by completing the Quest to clear the Maw of Lorkhaj. You will always obtain a piece of the Motif from this quest, regardless of whether the quest is completed on Normal or Veteran mode.
      • Defiled Whiskers, the style item for the dro-m’Athra style, are found in that same Quest reward. They are also obtained by killing bosses in the Maw of Lorkhaj: Occasionally from bosses on Normal mode, a guaranteed drop from every boss on Veteran mode, and multiple Defiled Whiskers from defeating Rakkhat on Veteran Hard mode.

    New Titles
    In Update 11, you will be able to obtain two new titles by completing Trials.

    • Mageslayer: Defeat the Mage Celestial in Veteran Aetherian Archive, while the Trial is scaled to Champion 160 to earn this title.
    • Shehai Shatterer: Defeat the Warrior Celestial in Veteran Hel Ra Citadel, while the Trial is scaled to Champion 160 to earn this title.

    *Please note that the Dye Stamps (Crown Store) and the feature to trade bind-on-pickup items in Dungeons & Trials to group members will be in Update 11, but are not coming to the PTS until the second incremental patch.

     

    AVAILABLE TEMPLATES
    We will be supplying four Shadows of the Hist character templates: one template per alliance that is level 49 and one alliance-agnostic template that is level 50 with 300 Champion Points. In addition, we’ve made some improvements to the crafting options included in templates:
