Wolfhunter DLC Pack
With the Wolfhunter DLC game pack, we will be able to venture into two all-new dungeons, face the monstrous beasts of Hircine, and discover powerful new gear and unique collectibles.
Moon Hunter Keep
The very beasts they hunt have overwhelmed the proud Order of the Silver Dawn, and their headquarters known as Moon Hunter Keep has fallen. You and your team must infiltrate the keep, destroy the monsters that now roam its fortifications, and put a stop to the terrible plans of the elder werewolf known as Vykosa.
March of Sacrifices
On rare occasion, the Daedric Prince Hircine allows a chosen few mortals to cross into his realm and compete in the Great Hunt. Gather your fellow warriors and prepare to stalk the wilds of the March of Sacrifices.
Both new dungeons will be available in Normal and Veteran difficulties (in addition to a Veteran Hard Mode option) and come with a host of unique rewards and collectibles including new gear sets, monster masks, skins, mementos, and more.
Wolfhunter Collector’s Bundle
In addition to the DLC game pack, the Wolfhunter Collector’s Bundle is available for 4000 crowns from the in-game Crown Store. This bundle includes the DLC game pack, the exclusive Silver Dawn Argent Charger mount, the noble Silver Daenian Werewolf Tracker pet, and five Crown Experience Scrolls.
Enter Hircine’s Realm and earn a free hat!
Once you have access to the Wolfhunter dungeons, you can venture into Moon Hunter Keep and March of Sacrifices and receive a free Wolfhunter Hat by the following methods:
- By teleporting directly to the two new dungeons from your map
- By using the Dungeon Finder tool
- By walking up to the dungeons and clicking on the entrance in Reaper’s March (Moon Hunter Keep) and in Greenshade (March of Sacrifices)
Update 19 overhauls Werewolves and Respecs
The Update 19 base-game patch will also arrive alongside the Wolfhunter DLC game pack as a free update for all ESO players. This patch features a series of new additions and improvements to the base game that everybody can benefit from.
Werewolf Skill Line Update
Update 19 features a host of changes and improvements to the Werewolf Skill Line. With these changes, transformed players will be able to sustain their momentum in combat for longer with updates to both the Skill Line’s Passive and Active Abilities.
With Respec 2.0, you can now choose to respecialise individual abilities one-by-one (similar to how you change your Champion Points), rather than being forced to re-add all of your Skills from scratch. This is a very welcome update as respecs used to cost 3000 gold which wiped out all skills. Now we can make smaller changes on the fly, such as changing your weapon or armour specs which is great.
New Battleground and PvP additions
With Update 19, there are a range of new PvP additions that are designed to shake up PvP in both Battlegrounds and Cyrodiil.
This new Battleground features a semi-symmetrical layout that places emphasis on map knowledge and awareness. Due to its large size, players are able to mount in this arena for the first time in a Battlegrounds game mode.
Keep Recall Stones
A massive quality of life addition, veterans of Cyrodiil can now make use of Keep Recall Stones to teleport to any of their currently owned (but not flagged) Keeps. These new items can be purchased for 20,000 Alliance Points from vendors, but can also be found within the Rewards of the Worthy bags. With these new tools, you and your team can move quickly to reinforce your defenses, or push your advantage after capturing a keep deep in enemy territory.
New PvP Rewards
Update 19 also introduces some new rewards for PvP players, including three new Battlegrounds Outfit Styles (earned by completing Battlegrounds matches) and the Arena Gladiator Costume (earned by collecting 50 Arena Gladiator Proofs).
The Wolfhunter DLC game pack for Elder Scrolls Online is now available on PC/Mac for ESO Plus members and the in-game Crown Store. Look for it on August 28 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Here are 5 ways to prepare you and your group for the dangers ahead!
