The Elder Scrolls Online Update 1.19 Out Today; Adds HDR Support and More
The Elder Scrolls Online update 1.19 is now available for download on PS4 following a period of maintenance. The update comes in at 902MB and notably adds HDR support on both PS4 and PS4 Pro, and adds Mythical Aetherial Ambrosia.
The update follows last month’s update which added PS4 Pro support. This month will bring with HDR support, meaning if you have an HDR supported television, the game will ask you if you to switch to HDR mode.
Here are the full patch notes for the update:
We now support HDR on the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 4 Pro!
- If you are connected to an HDR-capable TV when you start the game, you will get a system message asking if you want to switch to HDR mode. From that point on, game will run in HDR mode.
- There is a slider present in the UI settings to adjust the HDR brightness to match your TV settings. Please see Sony’s recommendations for which TVs to use to get the best HDR experience.
Mythical Aetherial Ambrosia
We’ve introduced Mythic Aetherial Ambrosia to Tamriel! Mythic Aetherial Ambrosia is an incredibly rare, incredibly potent version of Psijic Ambrosia. Drinking it grants you a +150% bonus to the Experience you gain while it is in effect, and just like Psijic Ambrosia, its consumption and crafting is affected by your Connoisseur and Brewer passives. While Mythic Aetherial Ambrosia will stack with other foods or drinks, it will not stack with Psijic Ambrosia.
- To craft Mythic Aetherial Ambrosia, you must first find an Aetheric Cipher.
- This extremely rare item can potentially be found on any monster within certain areas, listed below.
- You also need a Recipe Scroll for Psijic Ambrosia.
- Use the Aetheric Cipher while the Psijic Ambrosia Recipe scroll is in your inventory, and the recipe scroll will transform into a Mythic Aetherial Ambrosia Recipe scroll.
- This recipe can only be understood by those with the highest rank of the Recipe Quality Provisioner passive.
- The recipe for Mythic Aetherial Ambrosia calls for one unit of Aetherial Dust and one Psijic Ambrosia drink.
- Aetherial Dust is very rarely found on the resource nodes in certain zones – it can appear on ore, raw cloth, fallen wood, alchemical herbs and mushrooms, and water sources. It is not found on monsters.
- Both the Aetheric Cipher and Aetherial Dust are unbound, meaning that they can be traded and sold from one player to another. These items will only appear in the following areas:
- Alik’r Desert
- Bal Foyen
- Khenarthi’s Roost
- Malabal Tor
- Reaper’s March
- The Rift
- Stros M’Kai
