Explore Firepot Delve On High Isle And Amenos
What Is A Delve?
A delve in The Elder Scrolls Online is in essence a small dungeon. Delves usually contain a few enemies, at least one ‘boss’, and a skyshard. Delves can generally be completed solo. If you are a new player, you may want to explore delves with a friend. Most delves have an associated quest that you can get just inside or near the entrance. This quest is more a side story to the main quest of the area but does offer rewards for completing it.
On your map, delves appear with a blackened single torch. Once the delve is completed (by defeating the boss or bosses), the delve icon on your map turns white.
As you close in on the delve entrance you will encounter Vinilsare, an aquisitionist who, with her wife, gathers rare materials and ingredients. Her current job is to gather vulk’esh scoria, a molten rock said to have magical properties. This assignment was given to her by an alchemist in Summerset.
However, as is often the case, Vinilsare’s wife, Tarrinore entered the delve alone. Vinilsare has a map where lava vents inside the Firepot Delve were marked by locals. She asks for your assistance to retrieve her wife to safety, and collect the ingredients.
Firepot Delve Map
Firepot Delve is located northeast of the Castle Navire Wayshrine in southwestern High Isle.
The three primary areas that Vinilsare needs you to investigate are marked on the map. You’ll also note the skyshard location and the main boss location for this delve. This delve has only one boss. As mentioned earlier, to ‘complete’ this delve, you’ll need to defeat all the bosses. You can be sure that you’ve done so if you receive an achievement.
Exploring and clear the Firepot Delve will reward you with the Firepot Explorer achievement.
Inside Firepot Delve
This delve was is host to lava, molten rock, and volcanic vents. There are firey imps, iron atronachs, and Valk’esh Young to be battled as you avoid standing in hot pools of lava.
Esh’curnu the Behemoth
After finding Tarrinore and collecting several fragments of vulk’esh scoria, you will find the delve boss, Esh’curnu the Behemoth.
While he is formidalbe looking, the fight was simple enough. The standard rule of ‘Don’t Stand In Stupid‘ applies. Esh’curnu does spawn Valk’esh Young to aid in his fight and can bury himself underground for brief periods of time. Just keep moving, stay out of the aoe, and watch for a wicked tail attack.
Tales Of Tribute Fragment
Additionally, you may receive the Delver’s Ansei Deck Fragment for the Ansei Frandor Hunding Deck in the Tales of Tribute card game! These fragments can be found in your collections/fragments menu. Once you have ALL the fragments, you can combine them to make the deck. If you haven’t already played Tales Of Tribute, be sure to check out the High Isle Guide!
A Mission Completed
After you exit the delve, you will see that Vinilsare and Tarrinore have been reunited although Tarrinore is midly injured. In addition to gold, you will also receive the Vulk’esh Stomper Sabatons which is part of the Systres’ Scowl set.
