Elder Scrolls Online patch 1.0.8 tweaks combat and quests

Complete list of changes detailed inside

Bethesda has released a new The Elder Scrolls Online patch, which it says "contains fixes for quest issues and blockers, in addition to fixes for the Mac client".

ZeniMax recently announced that Elder Scrolls Online players will receive five days of free game time as thanks for sticking around through the game's rocky first month.

And last week, publisher Bethesda confirmed that the console versions of the game have been delayed by six months. Xbox One and PS4 editions of the MMO were originally expected to be released in June, but have been pushed back to late 2014 to allow ZeniMax to "solve a series of unique problems specific to those platforms".
