2022 Chapter's Villain ?

    Maybe not 2022, but for some later chapter I can see Hircine as a theme (maybe not as a Villain). I mean Solstheim zone will probably be added eventually and with it most likely some kind of story revolving around Hircine and man-beasts.

    A terrible cosmic horror, we don't know how to deal with it, because we don't know what it wants; those who try to understand it, or even see its form are driven horribly insane. We can't reason with it. We can't stand against it. It is a terrible creeping, sentient (but alien) doom that will undo existence.

    A good starting point, it just shouldn't turn out in the end that the origin of the horror was again a Daedric prince (like Vermina).

    Even though I'm suffering from Daedra fatigue, I wouldn't mind a slightly horror themed DLC featuring Vearmina or Namira as the big bad, I think an isolated island like Solstheim could be a good place for such a setting.

    How far are we in the Second Era, cause I really think Dagoth Ur and the Sixth House reawakening sounds like a great end-game for ESO. Maybe like a massive trial where you have to help put down Ash Vampires with the help of the Tribunal's forces.

    Ur and his forces reawakened in 2E 882 and the Tribunal were able to put them down repeatedly until they eventually lost Keening and Sunder in the Third Era so trials being repeatable makes sense.

    ESO story set in 2E 582 and I don't think they will do anything with Dagoth Ur because we already have Vvardenfell map.

    Akaviri remnants in the eastern Morrowind peninsula, with annoying Telvanni Lords. Firewatch, Necrum and Telvanni Isles could be cool to see. The lil isle of Gorne too, with it's luxury and strange lifeforms.

    Or some Yokudan warlord/king, coming to Hamerfell to reclaim his "legacy/people" or something like that, thinking that he have some rights over them like if they are still fellow yokudans. Helped by some nostalgic traitors on the continent. Basically some kind of independance war like the ones we had in our own history.

    Western morrowind peninsula would be nice
    Maybe somekind of treath related to dwemer?
    Like someone finding a powerful dwemer relic and plan to use it for someting bad
    Maybe the numidium?
    Is there lore that indicate where it is in the 2nd era?
    As far as i know, the next time we hear about it is whe vivec give it to talos in about 300 years
    This could be how vivec got a hold on that powerfull relic?

    As of now the dwemer theme asn't been use in main story if im not mistaken

    + the dark heart of skyrim awakens + Mehrunes Dagon invades + we'll get to the Adamantine Tower which is just the most important place in the whole Mundus + more coming next year.
    All of this happens within one year. So apparently our character is omnipresent and everybody else is active 24/7.
    Such an incredibly lazy, frugal trash writing. I'm surprised they didn't pull the usual Dragon Break yet.

    During 2020(or any year) there are many things happen in same year everywhere in the world but yeah our character just invole with all those events is a bit too much lol.

    I would genuinly love that. I would take a year long quest to find an old ladies lost socks over another Big Evulz Wants to Conquer the WOrld-schtick. It is getting old and stale very fast, to be honest, especially when they rehash old TES-games.

    Give us something more deep, more personal, more small scale. Perhaps even, dare I say it, where you have choices with actual consequences. "I know I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one"...

    I'd like it to be more of a Political Intrigue drama next time. No more Daedric baddies. The people of Tamriel are more than capable of doing some questionably immoral things.

    Oh god yes... my secret dream is a questline where you can actually chose sides, a bit like in Skyrim, and where no side is all bad, or all good. Whatever side you chose will have some good and some bad effects. Not everything is an ewok-after-party, after all. People will be divided about what side they support, and some will love you or hate you whichever side you chose.

    Action-choice-consequence, in short.

    Sorry, but ZOS just sucks at horror stories. They always try the Lucas-routine, to try to make you feel suspense and laugh at the same time. For example when you step into the Deadlands, and Eveli just HAS to draw some inane smell-joke. What little sense of suspense I felt went out the window right there.

    Still better than an Oblivion rehash/prequal that makes no sense in context with the actual game... :-/

    Bastian and Mirri get into a fight, and start to battle one another.

    that kinda put me off as well

    But I would love horror themed content if they handled it appropriately. But as others have mentioned, I'd also prefer the villain to not be world-ending. Conflicts like that are just too difficult to make believable imo.

    Mephala had her time in the Daedric Triad storyline. We even got to go to the Spiral Skein.
