ESO Server Maintenance Today Brings Blackwood Fixes And Improves Performance

The Elder Scrolls Online today went down for maintenance to clean up a few lingering bugs associated with the Blackwood Chapter. At the time of writing, Xbox megaservers are back online, while the PlayStation servers are still being worked on.

Bethesda expects the PlayStation maintenance to wrap up at around 12:00PM EDT, so you shouldn’t have to wait much longer to get back into the action. Today’s ESO server maintenance doesn’t make any radical changes, although you should notice improved performance, as ZeniMax said it implemented a “number of crash fixes” and solved several other gameplay issues such as desyncs and item set effects resetting.

“The Elder Scrolls Online v1.24.3.0 contains numerous fixes for Blackwood quests, Companions and Rockgrove Trial, a fix for War Chief Zathmoz not granting credit or properly respawning when defeated, a number of crash fixes, in addition to some fixes for gameplay issues including block cost desyncs, item set effects resetting, issues with the Elder Dragon, Rune Focus and Negate Magic abilities, and more,” ZeniMax said in a blog post. “The size of this patch is approximately 2.17GB.”

Some of the biggest changes come to combat, where the following issues have been patched out:

  • Fixed an issue where blocking attacks could appear desynced in cost, charging more Stamina than intended and later returning it after you stopped blocking.
  • Fixed an issue where your active weapon bar did not persist through a load screen.
  • Fixed an issue where the effects from Minor Lifesteal and Magickasteal could ignore their cooldowns in some cases.

If you’re playing ESO on Xbox, you should be able to check out the changes right now. Anyone on PS4 or PS5 will have to wait about another hour before maintenance is complete.

Today’s patch may have been minor, but tomorrow will see the start of Midyear Mayhem, which will give you a chance to earn exclusive items for participating in PVP events.
