Elder Scrolls Online previews Dark Brotherhood DLC’s Anvil and Kvatch

WHY DO YOU NEVER CALL ME?!

The Dark Brotherhood DLC for The Elder Scrolls Online will feature new areas for players to explore, which is a good thing. No one wants a new DLC that compresses everything into a single closet, even if it would prevent undue wear and tear on your W, A, S, and D keys. So why not take a quick tour of the areas found on the Gold Coast, from the cities and towns to the many parts of the land infested with things that want to kill you in new and exciting ways?

Anvil and Kvatch are the region’s two major settlements; Anvil is a bustling port town (presumably named after a sailing vessel by people who were very bad at sailing) and Kvatch is known as somewhere between “quiet and pious” and “neck-blisteringly sanctimonious” depending upon whom you ask. You can also dive into Hrota Cave or Garlas Agea if all of the city stuff leaves you with an urge to kill something, or take a look at the re-fortified Enclave of the Hourglass. You won’t want for places to explore, certainly.

I logged on PTS and was pleasantly surprised to see Anvil looking pretty much exactly the same as in Oblivion!

Oleg Chebeneev Funny thing is, I just re-installed Skyrim after seeing some of the newer mods out there. Like the one that took 3 1/2 years to complete with a major overhaul to all the cities and towns in the game! I am looking forward to heading back into Skyrim for a while soon.

I left after seeing what $20 actually got me with Thieves Guild. Between that joke and reaching V16 on mutliple characters with maxed CP ( thus not caring two bits about veteran rank removal ), it was time to bail.

Bought game, started at high elves zone, gave up at level 12. I just couldnt force myself to play TESO after modded Skyrim. If you want really amazing TES experience, search Skyrim: The Journey

The DLC bring a plethora of QoL improvements, from the most silly things like ear bumps for khajiits wearing hoods to a new bag animation that other people see when you search your bags.

NobleNerd I’m having a VERY hard time getting past the animation canceling piece. Just…no. It looks so wack, and feels so wrong.

Hmm… you make the DLC sound so big. In reality this DLC seems even smaller than TG and definitely smaller than Orsinium (by far!). 

Is the content solid? YES Are the many, many changes welcomed? For the most part, yes. DB is bringing in huge changes, of which the jury is still out on how it will actually impact the game at launch.

I am excited about the DLC and from what I played of it on the PTS so far I look forward to testing more of it out. Will it bring me back to playing ESO more?…. At this point, probably not. I do not see enough fixes to the Cyrodiil issues.

I would love to play ESO, but I can’t get over the awful combat system :(
