The Elder Scrolls Online got a new patch recently that fixed various issues introduced with the launch of Update 36.

Update v8.2.6 resolved a bunch of quests in Elder Scrolls Online. In the Hidden Lord quest, for example, the issue where the Garden Key was hidden beneath a rope when searching the dungeons in Garick’s Rest has been resolved.

If you’re a fan of the Tales of Tribute mini-game, you might be wondering why the majority of the foes you've encountered there haven't offered you much of a challenge. Well, the developers have probably discovered this recently, which is why they’re making Tribute NPCs a bit smarter now. Perhaps, it’s best that you revise your strategies first before sitting at the table, don’t you think?
