Elder Scrolls Online’s Wrathstone DLC has hit the PTS – here’s what to expect

Boom! Elder Scrolls Online players have known about the Wrathstone DLC for only a week, and now here we are welcoming its arrival on the PTS today, along with the accompanying update 21. So what’s in store?

Wrathstone is focused on kicking off that Season of the Dragon plotline with two new dungeons: the once-lost Dwarven vault called Frostvault (beware the goblins!) and the sunken Ayleid ruin known as Depths of Malatar. Those are both part of the paid DLC, and both 4-man dungeons come in normal, veteran, and hard mode flavors.

The base-game update will ensure that PvPers will walk away happy, too, as they’re getting a new battleground arena called Eld Angvar and new PvP rewards too. But we humbly submit that the quality-of-life improvements are the real star of this update: that’d be updates to racial passive abilities, the guild trader UI, and the zone guide system.

“In order to help you find and complete more of ESO’s zone content, Update 21 introduces the new Zone Guide system. This new tool can be accessed from your Group & Activity Finder or map, and it allows you to see your progress in any of Tamriel’s zones or beyond, tracking activities such as Zone Story Quests, Wayshrines, Delves, Striking Locals, Skyshards, and much more. You can even use this new tool to give you a quest marker to your next objective in order, starting with the zone’s quests. With this new system, everybody that enters Tamriel can easily find their next adventure or help them finally 100% complete a zone.”

The DLC and update 21 are expected to launch on the live servers in February.

I’m excited about these changes as they tackle a couple of points in a 5-bulletin list of things that pushed me away from the game.

I decided a few nights ago to make an Imperial Necromancer, so I set about creating a character I’m happy with so I could screenshot their sliders, then on release of necromancers, just copy the character and happily head off on my merry way!

I ended up liking the character so much I’m playing again with a fresh character. Oh well! haha

Here’s the problem with DLC Dungeons though, they are way too overtuned compared to Non DLC content which has been a common complaint, this hasn’t been a problem for me before since 4 mans and Trials are all side stories but now apparently the DLC is married to the next chapter; it better be dumbed down to Vanilla level or it’s going to piss off a lot of their subscribers.

That’s a good point.

As someone playing casually since Beta, really looking forward to the zone guide. All that time, and I’m still only part way through Silver ;)!

I wonder how many add ons I can drop.

The zone guide piqued my interest a lot. ESO is a fairly open themepark, but a themepark nonetheless and at this point a map to its attractions doesn’t exactly hurt it, I think.
