The Elder Scrolls Online latest update is here. Update 7.1.6 went live yesterday for all major platforms. On PC, the update is around 105 MB in size. The patch is solely focused on bug fixes and improvements.

Bugs related to Blackwood, Clockwork City, Greymoor, and Orsinium have been addressed. Several crash issues are fixed and the bug related to fishing has also been squashed. The patch also addressed the issues that are present in the newly added Walking Flame DLC. You can read the highlights of the update below.

Fixes and Improvements

Rockgrove Trial
  • You will now join the encounter in progress in certain locations of the fight with Flame-Herald Bahsei.
  • Deepening Shadows: Fixed an issue where you were unable to interact with the Animo Core associated with this quest after completing the steam puzzle.
  • Expiring Antiquity leads will no longer remove existing Antiquity progress.
  • Fixed an issue that prevented you from being able to fish in Wrothgar.
  • The Dread Cellar
    • Cyronin Artellian
      • Dread Surges will no longer have the chance to hit stationary targets more than once in Normal difficulty. This issue was specific to Normal mode given the slower travel speed of the surges. Veteran and Hard Mode were not affected.
    • Magma Incarnate
      • With the Challenge Banner placed, Scorion Collectors that join the encounter will now be momentarily stunned when entering the fight.
    • Red Petal Bastion
      • Prior Thierric
        • Prior Thierric will no longer occasionally turn invisible during the fight.
  • Destruction Staff
    • Elemental Susceptibility (morph): Reworked this morph to no longer last until the target leaves combat, and instead increases the duration to 1 minute. While this ability is active, the target is afflicted with Burning, Chilled, or Concussion every 6 seconds.
  • Bracing Anchor: Fixed an issue where this star's bonus was additive instead of multiplicative.
Arena Weapons
  • Caustic Arrow: Fixed an issue where this set was not retaining its effects after bar swapping. As a result, this item set is no longer able to be handled by the server entirely, and as such will no longer work in no-proc environments.
PvP Sourced
  • Elf bane: Fixed an issue where this set was not applying to ground-based effects such as Eruption or Wall of Fire.
