Elder Scrolls Online tweaks PvP group buffs and gear durability

        
    12

    ZeniMax patched version 2.2.7 of The Elder Scrolls Online to the live servers this week. The update includes a number of general fixes for both the base game and the Orsinium DLC pack. Included among the tweaks are ability adjustments designed to improve performance in the game’s Cyrodiil PvP zone. Abilities such as Exploitation, Hemorrhage, Illuminate, and several others will now only buff allies in your group rather than all nearby allies.

    The devs also reduced gear durability loss from regular wear-and-tear by 33 percent. Death-related durability loss has not changed. You can read about all of the changes via the patch notes below.

    Karl_Hungus Koshelkin Sorenthaz Huh? You never played TSW I reckon. The loading times without SSD are abyssmal. I wouldn’t want to play it without a SSD anymore. Another example is Lotro… while not necessary it helps with stable framerates. Even with a very good rig I had framedrops in Lotro at certain points with an SSD they are gone. I’m sure there are more examples. I also use the SSD for every game I pvp in because every single bit might help.

    theKP A Dad Supreme Not free, as you have to pay for them. But yeah, you get them included in the deal. The DLC is server bound though, so if you play on both servers, they make you buy it twice.

    MMO’s are generally not worth putting on an SSD. It helps with loading the game’s launcher but that’s about it.

    Sorenthaz ESO doesn’t need to go on a SSD. I have a couple of MMOs I couldnt play without a SSD anymore but ESO is not one of them. Loading times are still good and not that much improved if you put it on a SSD.

    It’s worth a look now.

    theKP A Dad Supreme That’s a good deal. If they did that on BF, then they’ll probably do something like that around X-mas if they’re smart.
    I’ll wait and see if that’s the case.

    theblackmage75 A Dad Supreme Ah okay. Subbed to DCUO so I understand that. Thanks to you and KP.

    A Dad Supreme No, but you get 1500 crowns which you can use towards purchasing the DLC forever.
    Plus, they just had a major Black Friday sale where you could have gotten both expansions for $23.

    A Dad Supreme It’s more like DCUO’s model, if you’ve seen it.  While you’re subscribed, you’ve got access to the dlc content, but if you drop your sub you lose that access.  Alternatively, you could buy the dlc outright and have it always.

    Not to mix apples/oranges but someone posted this in SWTOR, and I was wondering if anyone who’s subbed to ESO can tell me if they do this as well:
    “And today I even subbed, as I found out that doing that gave me ROTHC and SOR for “free” ($12 sub vs 2x $16 for the expansions).”
    Basically, if I sub for one month and then go F2P, do I get the old portions thereafter?
