The ESO 3.1.5 update Patch Note

DLC Game Pack

New Dungeons: Bloodroot Forge & Falkreath Hold
The ESO 3.1.5 update brings two new four-player dungeons, available as part of the Horns of the Reach DLC Game Pack!

  • Bloodroot Forge
    • The Bloodroot Forge had been buried and hidden away for longer than any could remember until the unification of Reachmen and Minotaur facilitated its rediscovery. Now, the fires of the ancient forge burn anew and the power emanating from it is palpable. Only blood and sacrifice to untamed nature can unlock its true potential and the Reachmen are generous in their offerings.
    • You can find the entrance to Bloodroot Forge in southern Craglorn, west of Elinhir.
  • Falkreath Hold
    • Falkreath is under attack by the combined forces of the fearsome Minotaur Domihaus the Bloody Horned and his Reachman marauder allies. This army of “beastmen” have adopted his visage when launching their attacks to inspire fear and terror, with much success. You must enter Falkreath and defend the hold as enemies pour through its broken walls set on its destruction.
    • Falkreath Hold can be reached by taking the cart in front of the Easter Gate north-east of Elinhir.
  • Both Dungeons include a Normal version in addition to a challenging Veteran version.
  • With the ESO 3.1.5 update, you can acquire unique item sets, including two new Undaunted Monster Mask sets, only available within these dungeons.
  • Unique Achievement awards are available for completing these new dungeons, including:
    • A new, unique skin
    • A unique hat
    • Several titles
    • Unique housing items

The ESO 3.1.5 update has added several new collectibles that you can obtain through the Horns of the Reach DLC Game Pack.

Morrowind Chapter

New Battleground Game Mode: Chaosball
With the ESO 3.1.5 update, a new game mode is being introduced to the Battlegrounds grab bag with Chaosball added into the rotation for all maps!

  • This mode introduces a single “ball” in the game, and your team earns points by holding the ball.
  • There are no other requirements for scoring other than holding onto the ball as long as you can.
  • Holding the ball comes at a cost as the Chaosball has a stacking healing and shield debuff, as well as pulsing Oblivion damage to all allies in the area, including the ball carrier.
  • There are no Sigils of Power in this game mode.
  • The game ends when a team has scored 500 points or the match hits the 15-minute mark.

New Battleground Map: Arcane University
Arcane University is now available as a Battleground Map!

  • All game modes, including the new Chaosball, are active in this new zone.
  • You do not need to own the Imperial City DLC Game Pack to play in Arcane University, but you do need to own ESO: Morrowind to play in this map.
  • Access to Arcane University functions identically to all other Battlegrounds by utilizing the Party system through the Grouping Tool.

Miscellaneous Battlegrounds Updates
With The ESO 3.1.5 update, new Battleground Medals have been added to support Chaosball.

  • You earn a medal for each tick of scoring while holding the Chaosball, and can earn additional medals for holding the ball for at least 30, 60 or 90 seconds.
    • The time-based Medals are awarded when the ball is dropped or the match ends.
  • Healing medals have been adjusted to trigger off lower values across all game modes.  This should result in more medals being earned for support play.

Three New Motifs
The Hlaalu, Redoran, and Telvanni Motifs are now available in Vvardenfell! These three styles and their associated style items can be found by stealing from citizens of Vvardenfell – picking their pockets, stealing from their safe boxes, and looting Thieves Troves left behind by fellow members of the Thieves Guild.

Base Game Patch

Miscellaneous Quality of Life Updates & Improvements
The ESO 3.1.5 update has added a number of updates to the base game affecting guilds, researching, and even the types of items you can bank! This also includes various updates to UI screens relating to crafting, gameplay, and general itemization.

  • Guilds
    • Guild Invites and Guild Invite Acceptances in the Guild History now include the account name of who extended the invitation.
    • Added a guild rank permission for “View Guild Bank Gold” which controls a guild rank’s ability to see the amount of gold stored in the Guild Bank. This is enabled automatically when “Withdraw Guild Bank Gold” is selected.
  • Crafting & Enchanting
    • You can now cancel an active research if you want to start researching something else instead.
      • Note: The item consumed during research initiation will not be refunded.
    • Items can now be locked or unlocked from the improvement screen. Locked items can also be improved, but only if the chance is 100%.
    • Equipped items can now be improved.
    • You will no longer be warned that an item can be destroyed if the upgrade chance is 100%.
    • Enchanting a locked item will now require an additional confirmation.
  • Gameplay
    • The ESO 3.1.5 update has added a setting – Combat Cues – in the Gameplay menu that will allow you to control the color and brightness of Friendly and Hostile combat cues. Enjoy!
    • Damage over time abilities will now display the number of hits you received from that ability next to the ability icon in the Death Recap UI.
  • Itemization
    • Furniture listed in Guild Stores can now be previewed.
    • Added a warning for equipping Bind on Equip items that are blue-quality or higher.
  • You can now deposit Alliance Points and Writ Vouchers into your account bank where they may be withdrawn by any of your characters.
    • Note: A character receiving Alliance Points in this fashion will not increase your Alliance Rank or progress in your Alliance War Skill Lines.
  • Crown Store categories that have new items in them will have a new indicator next to them.
  • Reporting a player will now also ignore them when the ticket is submitted.

Updates for Rolis Hlaalu, the Master Writ Merchant
Rolis Hlaalu’s inventory has been updated! His gold furnishing plans have been replaced with new stock, so there is now a new gold quality furnishing plan for each profession available. The previously available recipes are being retired for the time being, though they may show up again at some point in the future in his selection or elsewhere.

New Home
Hakkvild’s High Hall: Hakkvild, former Jarl of Falkreath who freed the hold from the hands of Yashnag’s Orcs, built himself this spacious hall on the heights above the town, with convenient access to the crypts of his ancestors. And now it can be yours!

  • This home neighboring the Falkreath Hold dungeon shares a similar style and includes both subterranean and above ground furnishing areas.
  • This home requires you to complete achievements tied to Horns of the Reach in order to purchase it with gold but is also available for crowns in furnished and unfurnished variants.

New Furnishings
A number of new recipes and furnishings have been added to the game obtainable by participating in various activities throughout the world. These include but are not limited to harvesting certain types of nodes, participating in Justice activities, and defeating enemies in the new Horns of the Reach dungeons, Coldharbour, and Ayleid Ruins.

Champion Point Increase
The Champion Point cap has been raised by a total of 30 points (10 in each red/blue/green constellation). The Champion Point experience curve has been automatically adjusted with this new cap, so that earlier Champion Points require less experience and can be earned faster.
