Update 6 patch notes has been released for the PTS of Elder Scrolls Online. We went ahead and picked out some juicy new changes Elder Scrolls Online account holders would find interesting for Nightblades. This includes changes to ultimate skills and a whole skill replaced by a new one.
New skill to get ESO gold with
When Update 6 launches the Haste ability from the Assassination skill line will be removed. ESO account holders will instead have access to Grim Focus. This new ability, when activated, will cause all attacks by Elder Scrolls Online weapons to deal out additional damage for 20 seconds. Elder Scrolls Online gold hunters can also use light or heavy attacks to build charges. When the ability gains eight charges, it will turn into Assassin’s Will. The latter allows ESO gold hunters to deal magic damage to a target through a spectral projectile.
Improved Shadow Ultimate to save more ESO gold
The Consuming Darkness Ultimate for the Shadow tree will also be changed by Update 6. The ability will now only last 12 seconds. It will also stop providing additional damage reduction like Elder Scrolls Online armor. Its synergy Hidden Refresh will now heal allies, but can only be activated by those under 50% health.
The Bolstering Darkness morph of this skill will also increase the effect of Major Protection buff on the caster by two. Its synergy Dark Resurgence will also have more healing for ally who uses it.
Save ESO gold with a new Soul Shred
Nightblades who build their TESO gold hunter for healing will need to take a closer look at the Soul Shred Ultimate after the patch. For starters, its casting cost will be lowered to 125 Ultimate. The synergy that heals allies will now heal for even more. Note however that after the patch it can be only be activated by the ally with the lowest health. Additional changes include Soul Tether connecting up to 6 targets and Soul Siphon no longer dealing damage. The latter morph however will grant Major Vitality buffs and heal up to six allies.
