The Elder Scrolls Online has received a new patch today, lowering certain quest level requirements and bringing tweaks to aid the fight against gold-farming bots, according to the newest patch notes.
On the front of level requirements, five main quests have been tweaked with a number of other quests involving NPCs altered to allow characters to spawn correctly or assist in combat when needed. Four Guild quests along with 13 others have also received changes to make them more accessible and rectify quest-breaking errors.
With patch 1.0.6, developer ZeniMax is focusing on removing the bot threat so common in the world of MMOs, adding timers to loot acquisitions for delve and open world boss fights. There is now a cooldown period between defeat and when they can be looted that is designed to prevent lingering gold-farming bots from obtaining items. Bots and farmers are also being removed manually, and a change to guild creation requiring you to be level 10 should also stop guild bot spamming.
Full patch notes can be found on the official forums.
The Elder Scrolls Online launched for Mac and Windows PC earlier this month, and will be available on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in June.
