For me, it performs great. Ive been playing ESO the most the past couple of months. On my 2012 rMBP with 650M 1GB at 1920x1200 low settings and 10.11.6 I get between 30 to 48 fps and zero pauses or lag.

I went ahead and updated my 10.13.4 partition and tried ESO. I then saw a cursor problem and fps ranged from 24 to 35 with pauses of half a second here and there. It was not really playable. However all my software runs worse on 10.13 (the worst MacOS I have ever used), so I dont consider it an ESO problem.
For me is the opposite 10.13 perform great with gaming, thanks to Metal 2. I'm also have an eGPU so I need last software anyway. usually many issue are related to exiting drivers and software, since I'm a IT tech support I work everyday with old machine with 10.13 and nobody have issue, my friends have some old Macs too. Anyway the bug IS NOT 10.13 related since it happens ONLY on ESO, no one other game have a single issue. Me and my friends all play with macOS at many games, only ESO have these.

Performance on my machine are higher than before, in dungeon I stay at 60fps capped with all max playing in 4K. IN open world it vary from 30 (in complex fights) to 60fps. So I can say the game is performing ok, can't be better considering it runs on OpenGL.

I doubt because it happen on iMac 27 2011, new MacBook Pro 13-15 2016-2017, on 2014 Mac Mini and go on
It happens only with ESO

They don’t reply to support, close tickets without resolving.
Almost every Mac users in high Sierra have the mouse pointer bug made impossible to craft without getting crazy (mouse pointer become invisible or duplicate!!!!)
8 on 8 friends have this issue, official forum is flooded by this issue reported with different names. Some community members are even creating an addominali to mitigate the issue.
Also loading times are too big and touchbar get crazy, there is some input craziness. Sometimes characters can’t move with mouse, it happened during boss fight, not funny.

My position was eliminated.  
To be fair I did have about 6 months warning.
And I could have moved to a PC centric team. (Ugg)

Anyhow, I was told support for the Mac Client was not being dropped.
I don't know what the future plans are and can't comment etc.

Now after 2 years the Mac version is so full of bugs that my friends are quitting playing.
I suppose there is no Mac team anymore. Pretty sad, the game was great

I'm happy for those who are excited. I think I'm the only person who hated the first game.
Why? It is a masterpiece!
