    The Redguard swordmaster is not your only companion in this endeavor, however. When you start the zone’s main story, a powerful and famous ally from Elder Scrolls lore joins you. No spoilers, sorry! Together, you and your new allies must seek out the secrets of the lost Dragonguard order and fight against the machinations of the mighty Dragon Laatvulon and his New Moon cultists.

    Will this mystery person be shown on the ESO Live stream?

    "The Season of the Dragon cat saga reaches its epic conclusion with Dragonhold"
    There you go, fixed it for you... ;)

    btw. Don't get me wrong, Khajiit is my 2nd favourite race in Elder Scroll universe, but racial rebalance in wrathnerf stone, NB redundancy removal nerfs in Elsweyr and finally dumbing down class identity and sledging Werewolf with nerf rocket - propelled hammer through the floor in Scalegame breaker...
    I think it kinda left a permanent scar that I will never get rid off. They will have to do miracles in next update 24 or else it may be the final update for me.

    I have been waiting to hear the Adoring Fan's back story.
    it comes to the Public Test Server on Monday, September 16!

    oooooh! Too late to take next week off work. Need more lead time, ZOS.

    Any content beyond the zone and quests? Usually there is something more in Q4.

    - Q4 2015: Wrothgar zone and Maelstrom Arena with Maelstrom weapons
    - Q4 2016: One Tamriel and scaled up Craglorn trials + Dragonstar Arena with Master weapons
    - Q4 2017: Clockwork City and Asylum Sanctorium with Asylum weapons
    - Q4 2018: Murkmire and Blackrose Prison with Blackrose Weapons

    Still hoping for some type of PVE content in Q4 2019, with the 5th ability-altering weapons, but haven’t seen any news on this.

    Paarthurnax would be appropriate for the story, since he is flitting around somewhere

    They didn't mention much about what the new Pellitine zone includes, but it should have, at minimum:
    • two delves, with daily repeatable quests to enter them
    • two world bosses, with daily repeatable quests to defeat them (hopefully with some variations like Murkmire)
    • at least one other daily repetable quest (CWC had two more)
    • a "Prologue" quest and daily repeatables, which should be released soon and do not actually require the DLC (but might require Elsweyr?)
    • some other bonus challenge group content? TG and CWC had 12P trials; Murkmire a 4P arena; although the Dark Brotherhood did not include anything special like this, so it's not a given. Imperial City has the sewer centre Molag Bal fight; we might get some analogue of that in the new DLC, if nothing else? (A repeatable seriously challenging boss/dragon fight, with special loot drops).
    In addition, although I hope the new announced memory and performance enhancement base game changes will help a lot in the long run, I expect there to be some serious stability and addon-compatibility issues for the first month or so. I hope they have a fairly long testing cycle on PTS first!

    I just hope they nail his look. So far, the ESO dragons didn't look much like the Skyrim dragons.

    fan-favorite character Sai Sahan

    Who are these alleged fans? I find it hard to believe that that sad, mentally constipated, multiple failure of a man is anyone's favourite.

    I agree.

    His lack of self-esteem and extreme codependency make it easy to forget.

    To those guessing Paarthurnax, I'm fairly certain that, if the mystery ally is indeed a dragon, it's going to be Nafaalilargus. A dragon from the game The Elder Scrolls Adventures: Redguard who's alive during the event of ESO.

    Or it could actually be Paarthurnax and the reference to Nafaalilargus in that event datamine is just an easter egg. Who knows? XP

    The Dragonhold DLC boasts more rewards than any previous DLC story zone, including new titles (such as the much-requested “Pirate” title),

    It will be very difficult to beat Wrothgar - few costumes, hat, titles, pet and Polymorph. New DLC has to offer mount, pet, costumes, titles, Polymorph... :)

    Seconded. Nafaalilargus is too obscure.

    Unrelated, I will be very annoyed if Sai ends up Grandmaster of the Blades Dragonguard. :angry: The man may have his good qualities, but leadership ability, subtlety, intelligence - basically everything that the leader of a spy network out to save the world needs - are not among them.

    It's kind of a waste to use Skyrim character a year before Skyrim anniversary year. Just saying.

    On top of that we can add Q4 2014 : adding dragonstar arena , sanctum ophidia and upper craglorn.

    Seems like we are going to get the weakest Q4 DLC

    Just as you have an opinion on Sai and the companions I expect those vary throughout the player base. None are wrong or bad as all the characters have their own worthy personalities and quirks.

    What surprises me is the lack of instanced content as others have mentioned. That is there the MMO part of a MMORPG shines and where those of us want some challenging content look at for fueling a big part of our interest in the game. I am hoping that no mention of it is just an oversight in preparing the news article. Otherwise I would be disappointed in a new vision to add less content.
