The Elder Scrolls Online 5.0.9 Update The Elder Scrolls Online 5.0.9 update patch notes

Although The Elder Scrolls Online 5.0.9 update is just a small one, weighing in at around 147 MB, it changes and fixes a fair number of things. Unfortunately, there is still no permanent fix for the guild history section of the game. We do, however, have a quick fix for the problems, which should let us take a look at the last ten days of guild history.

Elsweyr Fixes

Along with general fixes and changes within the base game, The Elder Scrolls Online Elsweyr has been under the microscope thanks to the 5.0.9 update. This includes changes to the Necromancer class. The Grave Lord’s Frozen Colossus ability has been fixed as part of the update. As soon as you cast the ability, a circle where the Colossus will smash is highlighted. This is a nice change from before.

Murkmire DLC Fixes

Murkmire has been looked at, too. The Death Among the Dead-Water quest has been fixed so you should now be grabbed and pulled by the Tamed Fire-Tongues. The Unsuitable Suitors quest has been fixed, too. You should now be able to reach the ladder that will let you finish the quest after you install the 5.0.9 update.

General Fixes

As stated above, Guilds have been partially fixed thanks to the new update. This includes a fix to the pesky random orders of viewed simultaneous Guild History events. The main use of this update, however, was for the developers to update The Elder Scrolls Online’s Terms of Service. You can see the complete 5.0.9 update patch notes below for more details.
