Uncover the secrets of Stone Garden
These dungeons provide more exciting adventures for you and your party, filled with monstrous beasts and challenging boss battles to overcome, amazing new questlines to experience, and a huge selection of additional Achievements, item sets, and collectibles to earn.
Launching with Stonethorn is the Update 27 base-game patch. This update brings game improvements, balance changes, and new features to all ESO players, completely free.
In Update 27, the team continues to work on in-game performance, and this patch brings improvements to the impact of certain item set abilities, fixes server task messaging, introduces a new critical memory management system, and more. These additions and updates will help game stability and reduce load times in addition to decreasing the number of memory crashes and performance drops.
Homestead Character Pathing
With the addition of Character Pathing to the Housing system, you can build paths for your abode’s many residents (including pets, mounts, and assistants) to follow. You can specify many locations (nodes) for each path, and pick their walk speed, add delays, and even decide whether they loop through to their original location, ping-pong back and forth along the path, or travel between nodes at random. With this new addition, your homes will feel more alive than ever before!
Coming to PTS
Stonethorn and Update 27 are coming to the Public Test Server for PC/Mac players. If you’d like to check out this DLC and update before it all goes live, open your ESO launcher, navigate to your Settings menu, and select the Show Public Test Environment button. Once it is available, you can then download the PTS client (it’ll need to be completely reinstalled due to the above patching overhaul) and play. Keep an eye out for the PTS to open sometime next week!
