The Scalebreaker DLC that continues The Elder Scrolls Online's Season of the Dragon and adds two new dragon-themed dungeons to the MMORPG is now live on PC and Mac, with the console release scheduled for August 27, 2019. The DLC is free for the ESO Plus members, or it can be purchased for 1500 Crowns from the in-game store. Together with the DLC, we get a new update for the base game that revamps the Undaunted Key system, improves the crafting system, and introduces multi-bidding for Guild Trader locations.
Here's more on that:
SCALEBREAKER DLC GAME PACK
The Scalebreaker DLC game pack brings two new Season of the Dragon dungeons, expanding upon the events of both Wrathstone and Elsweyr. The Dragons are free from the Halls of Colossus, and now you must deal with the fallout of their release. While these stories are part of the year-long saga, you can enjoy both without having completed either of the year’s earlier content—enjoy!
Lair of Maarselok
For centuries, Maarselok slept deep in the mountains between Elsweyr and Grahtwood. However, upon the opening of the Halls of Colossus, this monstrous Dragon has awoken, and now threatens to spread his corruption into the domain of the Wood Elves. Only with the help of the Warlock Carindon and the forest spirit Selene can you defeat this terrifying new Dragon!
Hidden within a fallen Khajiiti temple, the vampires of the Hollowfang prepare to perform a terrible ritual. Joined by the former Dragonguard Grundwulf, they wish to drain the blood from a captured Dragon! You and your team must fight your way into the fallen ruin and put a stop to their plan before it’s too late.
Both dungeons can be attempted in Normal and Veteran difficulties, with a Veteran Hard Mode option available for those looking for a challenge. Brave delvers can discover new rewards up for grabs in both dungeons, too, including new item sets, Achievements, collectibles, and more.
Finally, you can also earn a unique tablet collectible by completing both dungeons (on Normal or Veteran difficulty), allowing you to unlock an additional wing within the Hall of the Lunar Champion home.
Don’t forget, you can unlock the free Hall of the Lunar Champion home by completing the Elsweyr Chapter’s main story quest titled “Two Queens.” The third and final tablet required to completely unlock the mansion will be available with the upcoming Dragonhold DLC—stay tuned!
UPDATE 23 QUALITY-OF-LIFE IMPROVEMENTS
In addition to the DLC game pack, we’ve also launched Update 23, a free base-game patch for all ESO players. This update brings a host of fixes, ability changes, and improvements to some of the game’s core elements, including crafting, Guild Traders, and the Undaunted.
Undaunted Keys and Merchants
With Update 23, Undaunted Keys are now a currency and are no longer stored within your inventory, making them easier to manage. In addition to this, you can now trade your Undaunted Keys to the three Undaunted dungeon quest givers to receive reward coffers. If you choose, you can spend more keys on specific coffers that give you a better chance at receiving the monster shoulders you want.
This update also implements an improvement to the crafting system, allowing you to craft, deconstruct, extract, and refine multiple items at once. You no longer have to perform these actions individually, dramatically speeding up the process.
Guild Trader Multi-Bidding
Finally, Update 23 also introduces multi-bidding for Guild Trader locations. Guild Leaders can now bid on more than one trader each week. This change reduces the chance of missing a Guild Trader location each week and allows you to assign priority to the different locations based on how much you bid on each one. Don’t worry, when you win a location, all other bids are refunded.
