At long last, the fifth update to the award-winning ‘The Elder Scrolls Online‘ is now live on public servers.
In the fifth update, players will see various improvements and new content for subscribers to enjoy. Those who already have reached veteran rank will see a new dungeon for them to play. According to Zenimax Online, there will be a new story in the new veteran dungeon and improved facial animation.
In addition, the highly-requested chat bubble feature is now available, although it’s still in early beta stages. Upon downloading the new update, make sure that you enable the chat bubble as it’s turned off by default.
The Veteran version of City of Ash has opened, continuing the dungeon’s story and presenting challenging new bosses for you and your allies to defeat. As you play through the new story, you’ll notice that we’ve also implemented an improved facial animation system that gives the NPCs you’ll meet a much more natural and realistic look.
Did you miss one of the dungeons while you were leveling? With the new dungeon scaling system, you can play through any of them at an appropriate challenge level. Dungeons and their loot now scale to your group leader’s level. The same system applies to solo instances, as well.
If you love crafting, running dungeons, or both, we have another exciting addition for you: Writs and Pledges! Every day, you’ll be able to undertake new Writs and Pledges, which will have you crafting to fulfill orders and delving into dungeons to defeat bosses. You’ll be rewarded for your efforts, so give these new quests a try.
That’s not all you’ll find in Update 5: we’ve implemented chat bubbles, continued our improvements to Veteran Ranks, added the Dwemer crafting style, a new crafted item set, and many bug fixes and other changes. Read the full patch notes here to get every bit of Update 5 goodness!
