So let’s say you’re planning on joining the Dark Brotherhood once The Elder Scrolls Online’s next DLC launches. How, exactly, do you plan on going about your assassiny activities in a world where Dexter’s kill bag and clean room plastic wrap aren’t needed?
That’s the topic of today’s blog piece from ZeniMax. Once a player has embarked on the Voices in the Dark quest, she’ll be able to make use of the Dark Brotherhood’s skill line, which includes access to a stabby dagger, getaway skills, a fence, and reduced threat. Dark Brotherhood members will also be undertaking three types of quests:
- Contract quests, the bread-and-butter contract killings the guild assigns;
- Sacrament quests, which require players to bust into “subterranean locations to slaughter targets” and offer bonus objectives; and
- Bounty quests, which are dailies for activities like delving and arenas and aren’t limited to the Brotherhood.
There’s a special mission just for guild members, too:
“The Litany of Blood is a special mission, passed on to you straight from the Listener herself. You must complete your first Sacrament Quest to unlock the Litany of Blood. Nevusa, a mysterious Dark Elf assassin begins the Litany of Blood quest—you can find her in the Gold Coast Sanctuary beside Speaker Terenus. She will give you the Litany of Blood book, which contains cryptic clues about each of your targets. Travel all across Tamriel to complete the Litany of Blood for a special achievement and polymorph reward.”
