    SO excited to have a tougher version of this dungeon.

    Also very curious as to why the amount of new monster sets don't match how many normal dungeons we currently have without vet modes. HHMMMMMMM?

    Seriously, last time I did this dungeon we explained the mechanics to a new player with us, but we ended up killing him before the mechanics happened... lol

    When they say they are adding vet modes to all the dungeons, it means that they are adding vet difficulty modes to all 16 of the normal dungeons. I.e., they will be the exact same story, same quest, same enemies--but with a higher difficulty scaling. They are not adding story sequels to the 8 dungeons that don't have them (though it is possible that they might add a sequel to one of the 8; it all depends on whether the 17 that they speak of is a miscommunication or a hint of a yet-unreleased detail).

    Unless there is a confirmed continuation to the stories of the various dungeons, I'm unlikely to be excited by any of them beyond what loot they drop.

    @Daveheart It definitely is how code explained it. They are just making ALL dungeons have a normal mode and a vet mode. This means for example, Wayrest Story 1 will have a normal mode and vet mode, and then Wayrest Story 2 will have a normal mode and a vet mode. They aren't adding the second half of the story to all the dungeons currently lacking it. Although as code mentioned, the math doesn't add up for how many new monster sets we are getting.. so we are thinking/hoping this means there will be a new "2nd half of the story" dungeon.

    I think tempest island is the best dungeon in the game, its beautiful, vertical and has the most sweeping changes throughout. Been waiting on that forever it seems

    If it's only a harder version of the same thing, none.

    I want the "vet story mode" of all of them.

    If that's the case, and there would need to be one additional story 2, VoM is a likely candidate. I believe that was what they were working on for after CoA before they reorganized the dev team and came up with the DLC/ b2p model.

    I LOVE Ice-themed stuff. This dungeon will have a monster set derived from the Frost Atronach, Iceheart.

    Had it not been for that, I'd have chosen Vaults of Madness! :)

    If we do get a sequel, I'd like for it to be either Volenfell, Vaults, or Selene, as those are the three dungeons whose original stories ended with unresolved plots and loose ends. Volenfell, in particular, ended on a cliffhanger--we run to escape a horde of undead to... reach the quest turn-in?

    My vote is entirely dependent on the story for each being extended.

    If vet mode is simply more enemy health to blast through and a few more mechanic hoops then color me meh.

    He havnt died so fast when game was released. And he'll not die fast after making Vaults vet mode.

    This right here is the reason why Vaults of Madness is the one I'm looking forward to the most. I miss the overall difficulty of the game back at release.
    Just so that everyone knows, my Altmer still can't have black hair. About a dozen of Altmer NPCs in the game have black hair. Just saying.

    Meet my characters:
    Command: Do the thing.

    Zadarri, Khajiit Fist of Thalmor: The thing was done, as commanded.
    Durza gra-Maghul, Orc blacksmith: The thing was done perfectly, in the most efficient way.
    Tegwen, Bosmer troublemaker: You can't prove I didn't do the thing.
    Sings-Many-Songs, Argonian fisher: Sure, I'll do the thing... Eventually. Maybe.
    Aerindel, Altmer stormcaller: After extensive research, I've come to the conclusion that doing the thing would be a waste of resources.
    Liliel, Dunmer pyromancer: Aerindel said I shouldn't do the thing. Something about "resources".
    Gyda Snowcaller, Nord cryomancer: I will find a way to do it that won't waste resources and make Aerindel proud of me.
    Beatrice Leoriane, Breton vampire: I persuaded someone else into doing the thing. You are welcome, dear.
    Sahima, Redguard performer: Doing the thing sounds awfully unpleasant and really not my problem.
    Ellaria Valerius, Imperial priestess: I'll pray to the Eight for the thing to be done, if it is Their will.

    But I do really Wonder how it will feel to have the normal story mode in veteran mode... I do feel it might get confusing ...

    CP 561 DPS lf veteran (normal) Vault of Madness ... That is unlikely to feel good...

    If they were to add a Nightmare mode and at that level give acces to the two story, that I would like ! but since there ain't such a huge difference inbetween the difficulty of normal and veteran mode (as far as most dungeon goes). I would simply implement a Nightmare Mode with two level of difficulty, normal mode Nightmare, and veteran mode Nightmare and keep the normal and veteran mode as they used to be.

    The latter - given that they are adding "veteran" versions of 17 dungeons all at once, I'm pretty sure that they will not have time to create new story/bosses/mechanics etc for them. Remember that when we previously got new Vet dungeons, they only did one or two per major update (quite a while ago).

    Vaults of Madness will always be my favorite dungeon.

    I am sad it's just a veteran version of the same exact thing, though. I hope they add a storyline continuation to it someday.

    Although I don't think they will add any actual content unless they can sell it as DLC, and I am not sure how that would work with the base game dungeons, so I am sadly not holding my breath. :(

    None - This is awful. It means the one set of shoulders I've spent months grinding to get, will be diluted to near impossible chance.

    Once there are a bunch of new shoulders on key rotation, the odds of getting the one you want significantly decreases.
