ESO patch notes for update 7.1.6 on PC, Stadia, and Mac have been shared less than an hour earlier, providing an insight into the fixed issues of the game.

Earlier today, Bethesda announced scheduled maintenance for North America and Europe megaservers of The Elder Scrolls Online for a new update. While things went according to the plan in North America and the game is now live, the Europe servers will still remain offline for two hours more.

Now that maintenance is over in North America, you can get your first look at this new update, which is mostly a hotfix for bugs.

Update 7.1.6 fixes various issues of the base game and post-launch expansions, as well as rebalancing some weapons.

Below, you can check out the latest ESO patch notes:

ESO Update 7.1.6 Patch Notes

Fixes and Improvements

Base Game: Animation

  • Fixed an issue where the Wargame Trebuchet emote would not animate if you were in combat.

Base Game: Crown Store & Crates

  • Fixed an issue where purchasing the Vampire skill maximizer from the Crown Store would not increase the skill lines properly.
  • Fixed an issue where you would receive an animation error while using a crow assistant under certain circumstances.
  • Fixed an issue where other players not in your group were able to use your crow assistant.

Base Game: Exploration & Itemization

  • Fixed an issue where Rewards for the Worthy mails sent to characters who had not yet reached Level 50 or higher would not contain items from the new PvP sets introduced with Update 31 (Hrothgar’s Chill, Plaguebreak, and Dark Convergence).

Base Game: Housing

  • Furniture items will now block interactions, allowing for doors to be blocked off again.

Base Game: Miscellaneous

  • Fixed a game freeze that could occur when observing two players shooting arrows at each other at the exact same time.
  • Fixed a rare crash that could occur when the timing of some activities caused an error, such as disconnecting your network while loading into character select.

Blackwood: Rockgrove Trial

  • You will now join the encounter in progress in certain locations of the fight with Flame-Herald Bahsei.

Clockwork City: Quests

  • Deepening Shadows: Fixed an issue where you were unable to interact with the Animo Core associated with this quest after completing the steam puzzle.

Greymoor: Antiquities

  • Expiring Antiquity leads will no longer remove existing Antiquity progress.

Orsinium: Fishing

  • Fixed an issue that prevented you from being able to fish in Wrothgar.

Waking Flame: Dungeons

  • 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.
  • The Dread Cellar – Magma Incarnate
    • With the Challenge Banner placed, Scorion Collectors that join the encounter will now be momentarily stunned when entering the fight.
    • The Magma Incarnate will now allow you more breathing room before engaging with them.
    • You will now be given more time to use the portal back to the Antecedent Catalyst before being automatically teleported back once the Magma Incarnate is re-engaged.
  • Red Petal Bastion – Prior Thierric
    • Prior Thierric will no longer occasionally turn invisible during the fight.

Combat and Gameplay


  • 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.

The Elder Scrolls Online is now available on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, and PC. A few months earlier, the game has received a new update in ninth-gen consoles that improves the overall visual performance on PS5 and Xbox Series X|S.
