Elder Scrolls Online fansite leaks epic Morrowind images and lore

If you were sad as I was that The Elder Scrolls Online’s Homestead housing patch this past week didn’t offer much for the provincial Morrowind fan, take heart: ZeniMax was as expected just holding back the good stuff for the Morrowind release. Spoilers follow!

Russian fan site ElderScrolls.net managed to get its hands on a leaked Game Informer article (Game Informer is owned by Gamestop) covering the Morrowind expansha-chapter, complete with some gorgeous images of what is clearly some of the iconic cities on Vvardenfell, from the towering mushroom towers of the Telvanni east coast and the sandstone Hlaalu dwellings to the Velothi cantons of Vivec and thatched-roof construction of the Bitter Coast. In fact, if you squint, you can see scaffolding surrounding parts of Vivec and what appears to be Balmora’s canals. I don’t spy any Redoran shells!

There are a few interesting tidbits in the translation, including the fact that there are five great houses (plus one) in play during this time period (presumably the extras are Indoril, Dres, and Dagoth) and the fact that there’s a quest to become a skooma drug lord. See, mom, memorizing Morrowind lore did come in handy some day.

Check out the shots below!

I really like the crystals in image 3 and the armored guy in image 8. Also I am gonna get Morrowind for the first time (I’m a TES newb) and will play that and then when we get ESO Vvardenfell I will check that out.

I’m kinda glad I have not picked this up yet. The Beta was a shitshow, and while a free weekend a while after showed a ton of improvement, it wasn’t enough for me to pick it up. If they’re going to offer the base game and expansion for the normal box price, that might just do it for me.

When you think about it, this is going to be epic.

I spent more time in the Morrowind than all sp games I’ve ever played combined, no doubt about it. The most time i spent in an mmo would be EQ2 and that’s almost an embarrassing amount of time, I’d say Morrowind might be a quarter of that time. Yes, that much.

Checking these screens out i started to really wonder what it’s going to be like to return to Vvardenfell? I know it’s going to be Epic on a scale no players has ever experienced before, imagine the nostalgia factors alone.

This is a once in a game time experience (for Morrowind fans) I’m not sure of any other sp to mmo game experience of this nature, where you go from a world you feel is a place you’ve been but were always alone, to return to it packed with others players. Pumped!

I like that they offer everything for a simple subscription.

And each month you get crowns as a bonus !

I wished more studio’s took an example from this.

Uh…everything but this ESO:Morrowind, which you have to pay for separately even if you’re subbed, lol….

Bah. 40 Dollar for a Chapter which I play over a weekend? Sounds quite a bit overpriced.

Those look amazing…what I find incomprehensible is this 24/7 toxic rant about everything imaginable on the forums…what the hell is up with those people?

I know it’s bewildering. I’m not sure where it comes from as everyone I’ve meet in game is super friendly, always helpful, chat isn’t too bad compared to other mmo’s, and most sites (like this one), people are as enthusiastic as i am about the game.
Then you go to their forums and after your wtf moment, you’re wondering what is going on here? If you were to gauge the game on what you read on their forums, you’d never try it, talk about giving this game a completely wrong impression.
Who knows? The backlash of 40 bones for a massive expansion kinda tells me this is from the single player crowd of ESO fans. Another example is it was beyond some players comprehension as to why you would want to play another character (alt) they wanted to convert their whatever class into a warden, lol, absolutely clueless to mmo features.

People are also mad that they’re forced to buy a character slot to roll a Warden with if they already have all their character slots filled. Typically when MMOs release a new class, they give you a free character slot for it, too.
