Elder Scrolls Online teases the challenges and rewards of Wrathstone’s Frostvault dungeon, coming next week

We’re barreling on toward the PC launch of Elder Scrolls Online’s Wrathstone DLC next week, and if indeed you’ll be picking up the DLC, you’re gonna want to know what’s in it. Happily, we can oblige. One of the dungeons, Depths of Malatar, has been previewed at length; as we’ve noted, it’s actually based on an old Oblivion Ayleid dungeon. The other, however, is all-new. Dubbed the Frostvault, it’s an ancient Dwemer vault. An archaeologist wants to go digging to unearth its secrets; she just needs some muscle to beat back the goblins.

You’re that muscle.

The “centerpiece” of the dungeon is what ZeniMax is calling the Dwarven Delver, and it sounds like you’ll be making use of it to fight your way through not just those goblins but also traps and bosses too – assuming you want to new gear set and dwemer spider mini.

“Most challenging, however, is the gigantic Stonekeeper, Frostvault’s final boss. Be careful, as this monstrous machine can quickly dispatch your team with powerful beams, a flame cannon, and spinning blades. All of these weapons threaten unsuspecting adventurers, but none more so than the Extermination Protocol attack that can target your entire group.”

Also? Glowy butts.

My Nord loves smashing Dwemer-tech.

Two handed axes make short work of em.

RAR!

Maybe i’ll roll a Warden Nord just so i can hit stuff too.

Altho my DK is a 2hander, but he’s a Redguard.

Khajiit is a better race for Warden as the most viable Warden build is Stamina Warden and Khajiit can make an excellent use with his racials.

I have this exact build – Khajiit stamden and I can faceroll pretty much everything in the game, it’s actually boring and insulting how easy the game has become.

You even have various healing and stamina regeneration skills that help you sustain like crazy, you can just stay behind and continuously shell out large amounts of damage. One of my heals heals me when I attack the enemy and my other heal works when the enemy attacks ME, so if I’m soloing up close I can just get continuous healing for just attacking and doing nothing as well as having my stamina being restored… Kiting world bosses has never been more braindead easy.

That will change, won’t it? Also Redguard has ok Stamina gains too.

I don’t think that changes will be very significant – they will be minuscule at best and ZOS are making a mountain out of a molehill about it.
