The Elder Scrolls Online’s upcoming expansion Morrowind has entered the invite only closed beta on the Public Test Server. Although the content is under an NDA, Zenimax Online has shared the patch notes for the PTS that detail some of what’s coming in the expansion. The patch constitutes a massive list of changes, some of the highlights follow, and for the exhaustive notes see the PTS patch notes page on the wiki.
In addition to Vvardenfell, the largest landmass addition to date, they are also launching a new class, called the Warden. This class is an adaptable, support-orientated option for players who want to be able to fill a specific role while simultaneously providing assistance to others.
2 new dungeons are coming with the content.
- Nchuleftingth: Help Neramo the scholar uncover the secrets of Nchuleftingth and prevent an unscrupulous ruins robber from plundering ancient Dwarven technology. Explore the Ashlands in the east to uncover this Dwemer ruin.
- Forgotten Wastes: On the northern coast, enter the Forgotten Wastes to explore ancient Dark Elf ruins and solve a murder mystery while dealing with evil cultists intent on resurrecting a long-lost Dunmer House.
Morrowind also brings a new PvP mode called Battlegrounds which are small-scale, fast-paced battles with three teams of four players. Furthermore, they’ve added a new 12-player Trial, called Halls of Fabrication, which features both a Normal and Veteran version. Also included in this updaate are a ton of new item sets, Motifs, homes and furnishings, collectibles, titles, and even dyes.
The base game is also receiving some significant updates such as changes to the Champion System, the Master Writ Merchant, Cyrodiil Rewards, a new Inverse Kinematic System, and more. The Champion Point cap has been raised by a total of 30 points (10 in each red/blue/green constellation) for a maximum of 630 Champion Points. The Champion Point experience curve has been automatically adjusted with this new cap, so that earlier Champion Points require less experience and can be earned faster, and further rebalancing has taken place. As usual the patch also comes with a number of bug fixes to clean up the game.
Morrowind represents one of the biggest moments in the Elder Scrolls Online’s releases history and is adding a ton of fresh content for players.
