Update 39 arrives for the console edition of The Elder Scrolls Online

A fairly loaded 39th update has arrived for the Xbox and PlayStation edition of Bethesda’s fantasy MMO, The Elder Scrolls Online.

Improvements ahead

When it comes to The Elder Scrolls Online, you can’t say that Bethesda hasn’t supported the heck out of it. From massive expansions that are packed with new places to visit and new story-arcs to play through, to more scaled-down and periodic updates offering bug fixes and quality of life improvements, the MMO has had plenty of all of the above.

Now the console version has gotten one more of the latter, as the PC edition’s Update 39 has arrived. It includes some interesting alterations, including a new scaling back of the “volume and frequency” of quests, improved item management, and some additions to the title’s player vs player system.

General improvements include Quest & Content Improvements for New Players, featuring a series of changes that reduce the volume and frequency of quests offered to your low-level characters. In addition, Tamriel’s navigator NPCs that can transport characters between destinations will now indicate whether they can transport players to a location for tracked quests (active or inactive.)  

Alongside the quest and content improvements Update 39 also includes changes to key item types to help improve item management. These updates include the ability to stack together similar Crown Store items using the “Stack All Items” option along with better communication surrounding which items can or cannot be sold. 

In addition to the above, Update 39 features additions to PvP including improved death notifications, Treasure Scamp Drop Boosts, and new rewards including three Cyrodiil-based Monster Masks. Alongside PvP updates, are some home editor improvements which features Preview Crown Furnishings, allowing players to see how a furnishing would fit into their home before purchasing, as well as Inventory Furnishing Placement, which allows players to place items in their homes direct from their inventories and Collections.  

Bethesda press release

Update 39 is out now for both the Xbox and PlayStation editions of The Elder Scrolls Online, as well as the PC and Mac versions. If you’d like to see an even more detailed list of new additions, click here to end to the official TESO site.
