Elder Scrolls Online: Fighting a Dragon - Update 7.0.8 Patch Notes

With the recent major update 7.0.7 to Elder Scrolls Online came some new features, and some new bugs, but these issues are being addressed with a smaller update 7.0.8 today, and we’ve got the update 7.0.8 patch notes. This patch is exclusive to PC/Mac, and is approximately 102 MB in size.

This patch is primarily geared toward fixing issues associated with the new Blackwood DLC quests, some crashing problems, UI issues, and a few other minor miscellaneous issues with the recent update. This patch is free to download for all players, and unfortunately does not bring any new features. This is purely a big fix update.
