Take a tour through Elder Scrolls Online’s Thieves Guild DLC locations

Our house, in the middle of our street.

As The Elder Scrolls Online inches toward the release of the Thieves Guild DLC, ZeniMax is hyping the incoming content. Today, it’s released a guide to the locations featured within the DLC.

The core city for the guild is Hew’s Bane in southern Hammerfell, the desert territory and homeland to the Redguards.

“Travelers to Hew’s Bane and Abah’s Landing must be ever vigilant,” writes ZeniMax. “Keep your purse-strings tight, for pickpockets, thieves, and swindlers call this corner of Hammerfell home. Or don’t—it’s your coin. Finding the Thieves Guild, though? They’ll find you, trust us.”

The guide walks players through 1) the wealthy free port of Abah’s Landing, 2) the shady Shark’s Teeth Grotto, 2) the tomb known as Bahraha’s Gloom, and 4) the abandoned fort called No Shira Citadel. Check it out on the official site.

Last week the studio released a video touring the DLC’s highlights. The update lands on the test server this week ahead of its formal launch next month.

Greaterdivinity  It seems it’ll only be for MAC this patch though.  The PC version is apparently delayed.

I agree. I downloaded Eso and picked up the orsinium dlc as per your recommendation from a different article. It gave me more of that skyrim feel than I had expected. Looking forward to Thieves guild

Rozyn Greaterdivinity As Robert80 said, it’s part of the base game patch, which means everybody gets it.

SoMuchMass Yup, the next time I find some time to dig into the game I plan on throwing money towards a sub or something to support the game. I like how ZMO has handled the B2P transition. Picked it up last year but have never really had the time to dive into the game too deep, always another game or something else coming up making me put this off for another week/month.

Greaterdivinity SoMuchMass Yeah I don’t mind SWTOR’s model but prefer ESO’s.  I hope ESO is making money though, because with the Thieves Guild DLC I got so much crowns from subscription left over I don’t have to actually put extra for DLCs for a while.  
Although I go out of my way to support games that have friendly models like ESO.

SoMuchMass You’re right, it’s not the same. But SWTOR’s subscription provides a lot more value outside of the stipend through all the restrictions that it lifts than ESO’s does. ESO is essentially approaching it with the more player friendly “value added” sub model, where non-subs aren’t penalized but subs are rewarded. SWTOR takes the opposite approach, penalizing non-subs and essentially putting subs back at “normal” with a few perks.
I much prefer the ESO model to SWTOR’s, but you asked for games that provide stipends and the like, which SWTOR does. I don’t expect games to provide $15 in cash shop currency for a subscription though, that’s extremely generous. Considering all the other perks that most games provide with subs, $5+ is more than fine as far as I’m concerned.

Ah, I’ve never had an authenticator for the game, so I didn’t know that bit. Makes sense that they”d continue to give your shop coins, because you definitely bought the thing — but, then again, this is EA we’re talking about :-D

I do think they changed it, but I’d be curious to hear what you find.
