The Size of Elsweyr

    The best content they ever produced was Orsinium.

    I'm not as concerned with land mass as content. I just hope it's not full of virtue signaling tropes as Summerset and Clockwork city was.

    Based on the map and the location/shape of Elsweyr, I'd assume it's going to be one big map, maybe with a small island or subportion for dungeon or trial dlcs. Who knows though?

    ESO does not need to have tiny zones like many games, FF14 comes to mind as a great example.

    Besides, we have plenty of DLC zones that serve a good example of what we can and probably should expect in relation to the question.

    FFXIV is terrible with that, ESO pushes it out a bit more and has some big areas but total openness is king. WOW is undefeated at least when it comes to world immersion.

    Ever played Lotro? Has maybe an even better world immersion. No artificial barriers and a really giant open world. Plus Moria...

    On the topic: Elsweyr looks as big as Summerset. You remember how "big" Summerset in game is, right?

    I doubt we will get the whole of Elsweyr, we'll most likely get an area the size of Murkmire or Wrothgar and get the other bits later on. Its probably going to be the bit that says Tenmar on this map.

    Vvardenfell and Summerset are the two biggest zones in the game. Vvardenfell is the same size it was in TES III.

    I see a lot of people mentioning Orsinium. Wrothgar was actually significantly smaller than Vvardenfell and Summerset.

    I hope it is a couple of zones with equal amount of content as a base game zone
    I'd rather have multiple Elsweyr zones, preferably released as separate DLC's over time. Look at how much of Elsweyr is remaining in the game right now. Theres no way they've managed to fill up that entire space for exploration. We're going to have mountainous ranges that block off certain areas of the map, because whats left of Elsweyr is bigger than the island of Summerset. How much of the Tenmar jungle will be explorable? What about the northern deserts of Anequina? Also, how many cities are we going to get in an Elsweyr chapter? Mainland Summerset has 6 cities in total, but only 3 of them were actual city like hubs, with one being a backdrop for a trial, one was the setting for a public dungeon, and one of them was basically a lighthouse. Whats up for the chopping block this time around?
    So the Dark Elves have weird alien architecture, where people live in mushroom towers and the shell of a giant crab, but the High Elves, the pinnacle of technology, the most magically advanced race in Tamriel, are still stuck in slightly pretty, fairly tall stone buildings? Not even a hint of a glass city? Are stainless glass windows really enough to claim that a city is made of glass?

    Is this going to be another Chapter? I was under the impression that it wasn't, so that made me think "uuummmm, why would a DLC just like Murkmire be the same size as a Chapter?"

    • Bring back purge cloak. But I guess the new heal cloak is more beneficial. Hmmm....
    • MAKE IMPERIAL CITY GREAT AGAIN, BRING BACK THOSE INCREDIBLE DAYS. My best experiences in ESO where in there!
    • Return Stam builds to the power we held in One Tamriel. Long Live Stamina builds!
    • Put Magplar and MagDK into their place. Magpsorc is a hopeless case.
    • Is there any chance that we could get an Ebonheart Pact nerf? #CullingTheHerds .

    This must be a joke lol. Comparing TES III Vvardenfell to ESO Vvardenfell, what a disgrace. The 5-10 hours of content ESO Morrowind offers compared to the several dozen hours TES Morrowind offers are... underwhelming at best.

    I mean ESO Morrowind was done quite good, a lot better than Summerset (and I really enjoyed it). But I would never dare to compare it to TES III except for the art style, landscape or visuals (well you compared the size, so granted - I very much doubt it though, even it might be "technically" true, the entire scope of TES III was different).

    Care to provide any proof? I played TES3 recently, well, even with boots of blinding speed and jumping enchantments it still takes some time to get from city to city and cantons in Vivec are much larger then in ESO. ESO Morrowind is like toy version of original area with only areas anybody cares about are crafting stations, bank, HoF and WB for newbies.
