  • New Ultimate Items: Deathsting (available September 5) and Shield of Chorrol (September 21).


  • Reap the rewards during Harvest’s End through September 5.
  • Special Golden, Elder and Legendary Chest Bundles will be available during this holiday.

  • Text: Discounted Elder and Legendary chests from leveling up descriptions were incorrect
  • Text: Battlemage Armor now describes which armor type is its matching set bonus

Bethesda has been dishing out fairly regularly since the game came to Switch back in May 2020. Prior to this week’s 1.16 update for The Elder Scrolls: Blades, we saw the previous version back in July.
