Elder Scrolls Online drags you kicking and screaming into its Fang Lair

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.

Looking forward to it, these newer DLC dungeons are so much more fun and varied than all the vanilla one-mechanic tank & spanks.


“The dungeon promises to be on the more difficult side…”
Oh great so another cradle of Shadows or ruins of Mazz?
Looks I’ll be staying unsubbed and enjoying my DLC free random dungeon group finder experience.
Nothing is worse than getting one of these more difficult dungeons with a bow/bow DK in full heavy armor as a dps and a cloth wearing “tank” with a fire staff. Taunt? Who needs that!


Some positive changes in this update for pvp. No more permablockers and they removed AOE caps. I repeat they removed AOE caps. Is Zeni finally starting to listen?


ESO has some of the best Dungeon runs. Love the mechanics and varying difficulty. Great group content.
