When you hear a name like “Fang Lair
,” your first thought is probably similar to that of Indiana Jones: “Snakes. Why’d it have to be snakes?” But Elder Scrolls Online
is juking around your expectations here, because its upcoming dungeon is anything but a casual stroll through slithering reptiles.
In fact, Fang Lair is an abandoned Dwarven fortress from way back in the first Elder Scrolls game, Arena. ZeniMax is repurposing this location to be an underground complex full of necromancers and their undead abominations. One necromancer in particular, Orryn the Black, is attempting to raise a giant zombie dragon, and it’s up to players to put a swift end to that.
“Fang Lair is a location people haven’t seen since The Elder Scrolls: Arena,” said Dungeon Lead Mike Finnigan. “However, in that game, players saw it in a very different light. In The Elder Scrolls Online, we wanted to expand upon the lore behind it, and we thought this was a chance to really flesh out its story.”
The dungeon promises to be on the more difficult side, but ZeniMax is offering all sorts of tantalizing rewards for those who master it, including a dragon skull decoration and the Worm Wizard personality.
