Beat Elder Scrolls Online’s Falkreath Hold, buy a Nord manor

    
10
When the Horns of the Reach DLC launches for The Elder Scrolls Online next month, one of the dungeons wrapped up in the bundle is located in Falkreath. If that’s sounding familiar, it’s probably because you toured the city in Skyrim, only this is a millennium earlier.

“The Falkreath in The Elder Scrolls Online is much larger than you will recall, and it is well protected by giant stone walls,” ZeniMax says. “When you arrive, you’ll witness a city under siege. Of course, Falkreath is not without its protectors, as Jarl Skjoralmor’s daughter, Eerika, has mounted a spirited defense, but the city’s tall walls cannot hold back the invaders forever, and without help, it’ll soon fall.”

You, of course, are that help; you’ll be defending the city and diving into the Falkreath Hold dungeon specifically in exchange for ridiculous piles of gear upgrades and loot. In fact, once you’ve beaten the dungeon, you’re in for a special treat:

“Finally, when completing the dungeon for the first time, you’ll unlock the ability to purchase Hakkvild’s High Hall home with gold. This new Nord-styled manor gives you a perfect view of the town you just saved. If you have not completed the dungeon, you can still purchase it with crowns in the in-game Crown Store.”

The house in Windhelm was such a disappointment that I hope this new Hall will be worth it.
To this day, Autumn’s Gate near Nimalten remains my favorite house.

Does anyone else think it’s a bad idea to design a helmet that provides zero visibility for an animal that has forward facing eyes? Then put that helmet on said animal?

How could we ever thank you?!
Oh, you want that house? Ok, sure. Give us gold.

Sounds legit.

Well, when you saved that first town… what was it? Windhelm?… Anyway, they make you Jarl and give you the house right?
Seems the least they could do is let you live for free in the town you saved.

You still had to pay for said house and then you had to pay to “decorate”, but you did get an axe and Lelia to haul all of your junk, so win, win!!

Well damnit haha. Guess it’s time to replay it and refresh my memory.
Still should have gotten it free. One free house for every dragon slayed. /thumbsup

The problem is that these cities are in peril so often, they can’t afford to give out a free house for every savior. I mean, I saved a king from certain death in ESO and what did I get? About 300 gold. “Thanks for the riding lesson, my lord.”

There was a house in the Dragonborn expansion of Skyrim that you got for free after helping the town. Pre-furnished with everything from display racks and mannequins to a whole forge in there. Maybe that’s what you were thinking?
