When Update 21 goes live, players will find a new PvP map where players can earn new weapon outfit styles and other collectibles. Called Eld Angvar, developers call it a “world between worlds”. “You might recognize this location as one you visited during the Murkmire main questline, but this time, you’re using the void’s mysterious portals to hunt your fellow players,” the blog reads.
Zenimax has announced that the Wrathstone DLC for Elder Scrolls Online will launch for PC players on February 25th. PlayStation 4 and XBox One players will be able to join in on March 12th. Wrathstone challenges players to find the two halves of the tablet by completing the Depths of Malatar and Frostvault dungeons. Wrathstone also marks the official ‘Season of the Dragon’ year-long campaign that includes the upcoming Elsweyr expansion.
When Update 21 launches, all players will find a number of pretty cool QoL improvements, none neater than the new Zone Guide. When players enter a new zone, or even a previously-visited zone, they will be provided tons of information to “help players that want to complete a zone or those that feel lost and want to find something to do”.

The Elder Scrolls Online site has been updated with a post from Loremaster Lawrence Schick who uses the space to announced that he is leaving Zenimax for “his next great adventure”. Schick has been with the company since 2009 as its Lead Writer and Loremaster. The post is filled with Schick’s observations about the community and its importance to Tamriel.
From February 7th to February 12th, Elder Scrolls Online players who are not already Plus members are invited to try out ESO Plus for themselves. Plus membership offers players full access to all of the game’s DLC including Murkmire, the latest content expansion DLC. There are also a number of other perks including boosts to XP, gold acquisition and much more.
Starting February 7th, Elder Scrolls Online players can take part in the Morrowind Celebration Event. Those who own Morrowind will be treated to double drops from resource nodes, all bosses and double reward boxes from dailies in the area. Those who don’t own Morrowind can pick it up for a special price: 1750 Crowns (50% off). Lastly, those participating in the event can earn Event Tickets needed to buy Indrik Feathers needed to evolve Indrik mounts.
The Elder Scrolls Online forum has been updated with a new post that provides players with a look at forthcoming changes to Racials. The information came after a meeting with Class Reps with much of the time taken on the discussion of racials. “Devs made us think they have taken our and the community’s feedback to heart and are legitimately trying to make his as smooth as possible. Speaking for myself, I was impressed and pleasantly surprised”.
Ahead of the upcoming reworking of Racials in Elder Scrolls Online, the team has heard player feedback about “the total number of high level characters from ESO accounts” and will be awarding every player three race change tokens and three name change tokens. These will be automatically added to player accounts ahead of Update 21 when the changes to racials go into effect. We think that’s a pretty classy move altogether.
