The Elder Scrolls Online Update v8.2.7 is now available on PC and will be ready for download on consoles later today. This update reverts a previous bug fix because it was causing more trouble in other gameplay functions.

In a previous update, Zenimax Studios implemented a particular bug fix that should have resolved the issue with bashing, where it could clear Heavy Attack inputs after doing so. However, the studio found that this fix actually caused another bug. Whenever a player initiates a dodge roll or performs a bash attack, the action would make the player unable to block, even though the appropriate key or button is being held.

The company needs to go back to the drawing board to fully address the problem with Heavy Attack inputs without breaking things in other parts of combat or gameplay in general. For now, the said bug fix has been reverted, meaning players can resume blocking normally even after dodge rolling an attack.

The latest patch for ESO resolves certain quests as well. For instance, the issue where players could not talk to Quen after accepting the Sea Runs Restless quest is now fixed.

    • Fixed a crash that could occur when fighting Zaan the Scalecaller.

  • A Wailing Wood
