October 22nd: That’s when Murkmire will finally launch for The Elder Scrolls Online, at least for PC players. Consolers will be waiting another two weeks to November 6th to get their marsh on. As we’ve previously covered, the DLC includes the new zone on the southern coast of Black Marsh with its main storyline and Blackrose Prison arena, plus the free bits coming with update 20 on the same day, including updates to the housing editor, the character selection screen, class balancing, music boxes, and the Cyrodiil RvR map improvements.

But current players will want to focus on today’s update right now – that’s because you can start the Murkmire prologue quests today.

“Today, you can begin the journey that will lead you deep into the swamps of Black Marsh with the Murkmire prologue quests. To get started, pick up the first quest either from the Crown Store (for free) or from the Cyrodilic Collections “Help Wanted” posters that can be found in the cities of Vulkhel Guard, Daggerfall, or Davon’s Watch. In these new quests, you are tasked with helping Concordia Mercius and Cyrodilic Collections recover looted Argonian relics taken from Black Marsh. As you progress, you’ll learn about some of the dangers associated with a certain special relic and get a glimpse of what’s to come with the Murkmire DLC game pack. The Murkmire prologue adventures features two unique story quests in addition to a series of six new daily quests that have you collect items in preparation for the coming journey to Murkmire.”

Also worth noting is that Murkmire itself is actually the reward for logging in 24 days during the month of November, so if you can’t afford the fee, just keep up with your daily logins and it’s yours for nothin’ at all.

I find questing too easy in ESO but it is OK ish once you take of all your armor . I doubt I will be bothered enough to do this DLC , I will probably wait until they announce the next expansion and subscribe for a month and do all the DLC content put out between one expansion and the next at once .

Whoever says ESO is expensive and P2W is insane. They give you so much content that it’s impossible to go through all of it.

And this free DLC… if it’s not service to their customers, I don’t know what it is. They don’t throw you some old DLC that nobody cares about anymore for free, but the newest one.

I have a Khajiit already, my next character will probably be Argonian or Orc… those three races look the coolest, the next two cool ones are Redguard and Dark Elf.

I think what they mean is the price of the DLC and the Expansions are a little high in terms of the content you get from them but as I have said above you can wait and play all the DLC’s at once by just subscribing for a year and of course if you wait a while the expansions come down in price .

I don’t think I have heard anyone call it pay to win ever but I wouldn’t be surprised if there are a few people who do , let’s face it there are people who call any game with any kind of shop in it pay to win .

They do free events too, so you can play DLCs you don’t own yet. That’s how I played through Wrothgar and and Clockwork City. Wrothgar was good, but Clockwork City was pretty lame. They also discount some DLCs too, like for example I got Thieves Guild and Dark Brotherhood for 500 Crowns each, whereas they cos 1500 Crowns each.

The game is pretty generous and fair for a B2P title with optional DLCs. The people that complain about Crown Crates and stuff are stupid, because those are the only gambling things and they only give you skins. And if you’re vain enough to care about skins, your opinion doesn’t matter.

I can wait a month after it releases in order to get it for that fine fine price of zilch. :P

Waiting for the black cat pet here shortly. <3

I think there may be a mistake in the article – are the daily logins supposed to take place in November or October?

November for the daily reward. The people who pay for it (directly or through ESO+) get to play it a full month earlier.

Ah ok, that makes sense. Thanks!

That’s surprisingly early, I though ESO only didnwuarterly releases Chapter then 2 Dungeons, then Story DLC, then 2 Dungeons. I suppose this means we’ll get a content drought later on?

I’ve been playing a little GW2 taking an alt half way through HoT, and then this!

You know it feels like I’ve got these two sultry women vying for my attention between ANet and Zenimax and just when I decide to take ANet home with me Zenimax just sent me that text message getting the wheels turning.

I don’t know man, I can’t play two MMOs at once it winds up being a shallow experience for me.

Murkmire’s the Q4 release for this year, there’s usually a bit of a gap because of the winter holiday, so we’ll probably see the next one in late January or early February and the next Chapter around May.

Which month did Clockwork City drop last year?

I’m looking forward to this as I mainly play Argonians (I’m a tank so that’s an added benefit) because I like their story, I’m a big fan of their dry humor as well. Currently working on two Argonian alts a Night Blade called Wears Shades At Night and a Dragon Knight called Pokes Daedra With Stick.

The way Zos releases updates is base on four quarters. Q1,Q2,Q3,and Q4 of a Year. The type of content is not always the same but somethings are consistent. As of last year Q2 is a chapter, Q3 is dungeon dlc, and Q4 is smaller story dlc. The same thing happen this year.
The difference between this year and last year is Q1. Last year we got just the housing update while this year we got another dungeon dlc. So they change it up some times but we always get an update every quarter.
