Elder Scrolls Online’s Wolfhunter launches August 13: Here’s all the werewolf stuff you should do in the meantime

Are you prepared for Elder Scrolls Online’s upcoming Wolfhunter DLC? If not, you should probably take a peek at ZeniMax’s guide, which is a tad cheesy admittedly but does include some useful tips for what you should clean up ahead of the werewolf-themed content drop. Probably the most hand tip is to zip through the Fighter’s Guild questing.

“This includes mastering the powerful Abilities of the Fighters Guild Skill Line. This Skill Line is designed to help you combat Undead, Daedra, and Werewolves, and is ideal for the battles ahead. Abilities like Trap Beast are a no-brainer, allowing you to stop a werewolf mid-pounce and deal some nice damage-over-time. However, you could also make good use of Silver Bolts and its morph Silver Leash, allowing you to reduce a beast’s movement speed AND pull them towards you.”

The rest of the suggestions are more in the vein of preparing for the dungeon avalanche (like make sure your regular group is set) or getting into the spirit of things with completing the Faolach questline, picking up themed gear, or contracting lycanthropy by being bitten by a werewolf (or cursed player) yourself. The update launches in just 10 days, so best get started!

This game is dead to me as far as I am concerned. Zeni is just content with putting out lack luster updates and not fixing anything. While also charging a premium to nickel and dime their playerbase. If they focused on making quality updates more than their aggressive monetization, this mmo might have turned out differently.

Combat is already outdated and needs revising, bug riddled game, terrible optimization, cryodiil will never be fixed because they don’t know how to, the list goes on and on. If your enjoying the game, that’s great but I refuse to give zeni anymore of my money.

Lol pvp in this game is beyond trash. Its really amazing how they keep ignoring it.

ESO’s playerbase seems to be split in two, those who have all manner of issues of the kind you mention (mostly console and/or PvP-based), and those who don’t have any real issues with the game at all (mostly PC and/or PvE-based). As one of the latter, I’ve been playing the game with flawless performance and no other significant issues (apart from the highly restrictive trading system) since it launched in 2014.

Of course, most of the former are still playing the game, they just don’t want to pay for it which is a common enough theme with modern business models in gaming.

A lot of the PvPers have moved on, myself included.

Last I played the game only really has one active campaign, Vivec, and even that it is crash/freeze city. You’d have to be insane to stick around.

Don’t like the story in WoW these days? ESO’s next patch is coming out on the same day as WoW’s expansion. Hopefully ESO’s werewolves will be morally grey, lest we have another shitstorm on our hands…

I’m rather surprised ESO would release it against an expansion, I probably won’t be diving into BFA in the 13th but that’s only because I’m still finishing Argus.

It’s just a couple of Dungeons, no story content. Everyone who subs will get it anyway.
