The Elder Scrolls Online 2021 Recap – All The Stuff And Things
What a year it’s been! With so many Covid restrictions keeping many of us at home (aka more time to play ESO), somehow The Elder Scrolls Online team was able to keep us busy in Tamriel! And what a great job they did! They provided us with new DLCs, a new chapter, new systems, more storylines, and more rewards! Lots of shiny stuff and things so let’s look a little deeper.
Flames Of Ambition DLC & Update 29, March 2021
The champion points cap was raised from 810 to 3600! And we were introduced to the new Champion Points system commonly called CP 2.0. Advanced stats now appear on the character sheet and console players rejoice at all the new information pc players had previously cornered the market on.
Blackwood Chapter & Update 30, June 2021
The Blackwood chapter and Update 30 released in June brought us companions. Bastion Hallix and Mirri Elendis can now join us on our questing adventures.
The Rockgrove Trial (mechanics guide coming very soon) was also introduced as were Oblivion Portals. Entering into an Oblivion Portal (which RANDOMLY spawns throughout Tamriel) leads you to a public dungeon-type area with rewards awaiting the victor.
Additionally, endeavors were added. Completed daily endeavors earn seals of endeavors that can be used in the Crown Store to purchase things previously only available from Crown Crates. This is something automatically tracked and added for us. Endeavors can be as simple as opening treasure chests, completing a dungeon, completing a quest, or defeating a specific type of monster.
Waking Flame DLC & Update 31, August 2021
Update 31 offered many behind-the-scenes performance improvements and new houses, furnishings, and even new houseguests.
The Deadlands DLC & Update 32, November 2021
Lastly, but certainly not least, came Update 32 and The Deadlands. Everyday quality of life got so much better with the Armory System, Curated Item Set Drops, map improvements, and more. Skyhards and active dolmens now appear on the maps of all players (including Xbox and Playstation).
In addition to the new area of The Deadlands, we also received Fargrave, wandering executioners, and more storylines within those areas. You can read more about those additions in these articles:
Hermaeus Mora himself appears as the next FREE Tales of Tribute Patron coming with Update 40. This deck is power-heavy, but it comes with a cost.
You can earn the Chainsmasher achievement by defeating Cralys the Chainmaker and the Argonian Behemoth at Clamorclap Bowl from ESO’s Necrom Chapter.
A rebalancing of the jewelry crafting will help make it more in line with other crafting disciplines. Here’s what’s coming.
