ESO News Round-up: Bot Woes, Bank & Inventory bugs

Weekly Tamriel Journal ESO News Round-up

In the Round-up:  • Bot / Cheater Woes • Bank and Inventory mysteriously disappearing • Latest Patch Notes • Upcoming Game Fixes • Tamriel Journal Updates of the Week •

Zenimax takes action against cheaters

I’m sure many of you have either seen videos or witnessed bots / cheaters in ESO by now. I’ve seen armies of bots camping public dungeon bosses, and bots teleporting / speed hacking between gathering nodes, harvesting resources at abnormal rate.

Zenimax has banned thousands and acknowledges the issues & is working to keep the game free from cheaters and gold spammers.

Bank & Inventory Disappearing

A great number of players have lost their items in bank and inventory. Bank space and even skill points have also been lost.

The bug is super frustrating and pretty much the worse kind of bug which can occur in MMOs. The good news is that the customer support can track your missing items and return them, but so far I haven’t heard of anyone getting back the extra bank space they purchased. For now, I’d simply not purchase any extra bank space.

The latest Patch Notes

Patch 1.0.3 Notes include more quest bug fixes.

Upcoming Game Fixes

Missing Bank Slots, Stored Bank Items, and Skill Points – We’re continuing to investigate the issue, and are working on a fix now. As soon as the fix is ready, we will push it out to the live megaservers. Please note: This may result in a second maintenance this week and when we do push the fix, it will not be retroactive. Know that we want to make this right for all impacted—we’re still exploring options to help those who have stored items/gold, and bank slots go missing.

Long Loading Times/Social Lag – Some people have been experiencing long loading times, guild chat lag, and other social systems lag, especially during peak times. We are aware of this and are actively investigating it. As soon as we have a fix, we will push it live.

Dungeon Treasure Chests – Based on feedback, we are changing treasure chests in instanced dungeons so that everyone gets a piece of loot regardless of who opens the chest. This change is currently being implemented and tested internally and will be released in a future patch as soon as it’s ready. Watch the patch notes for the news.

Public Dungeon & Delve Boss Monsters – Also based on feedback, we will be placing a timer on how often you can get loot from public dungeon and delve boss monsters. This timer is shared across all boss monsters in public dungeons and delves. This will not impact loot timers for quest-specific monsters or overworld group bosses. Watch the patch notes for news on when this change will go live.
