The Elder Scrolls Online is gearing up for the release of its new Horns of the Reach DLC on the 14th. To ready players and themselves, the developers are releasing a new base game update on the same day the DLC becomes available. Update 15 will bring a number of new changes to crafting, guilds, and more. So, here’s what we know so far:
For those who enjoy things like blacksmithing, there’s some good news on the horizon with Update 15. Once the update goes live, no longer will characters be forced to disrobe if they wish to improve the gear they are currently wearing. PC players will find their equipped items have a checkmark beside them in the normal crafting menu while console players will have an “Equipped” section.
In addition to this, players will also be able to cancel ongoing crafting research at any time. This will be extremely useful in cases of mis-clicking or simple errors. The item used will be destroyed, though, so make sure you really want to cancel before you press that button!
Guilds will now keep a record of who has been previously invited to the guild and which member did the inviting. This will be obviously helpful for massive guilds that need to keep better track of their rosters. On both PC and console, a new “History” tab will be added to the Guild menu and players can find the information there.
Also new to guilds in Update 15 is the ability for Guildmasters to toggle whether or not members can see the guild’s current bank funds. Privacy can be important, so if that’s something that appeals to you as a Guildmaster, you can find the new permission in the Guild Ranks menu when Update 15 goes live.
QUALITY OF LIFE
Combat cues have been a hot topic amidst some of the Elder Scrolls Online community for quite a while. In Update 15, players will finally be able to customize the colours of different combat cues. This includes both friendly and enemy cues which can all be changed in colour and brightness. You can find the option in the “Combat Cues” section of the Gameplay settings.
Update 15 will also allow players to share their Alliance Points and Writ Vouchers with all their characters by storing them in the bank. While this will not change the respective character’s Alliance Rank or anything, it is still helpful. And for those who enjoy crafting, you can pass on a specific writ to any of your characters.
And that wraps up all the currently known changes coming in Update 15 to the base game. The update goes live on the 14th of this month, the same day the Horns of the Reach DLC goes live.
