Being added as a dlc that leads into the Forgotten Vale. In the Fourth Age the Snow Elves are all but gone… would be very interesting to see if there were more still alive during the Second Age. Since it Second Age, there is plenty of time for them to be forgotten to the history of the lore. I think it would be pretty cool, even better if it was a stealth drop DLC, like it was discovered accidentally by the community in some other unrelated DLC.

    You know that Skyrim part 3 is coming someday too. lol From Falkreath to Dawnstar is missing. And Falkreath is a dungeon, so idk how that will even work moving forward...

    And there's more of Eastern Cyrodiil missing. And if the rumors are true, Skingrad and SW cyrodiil may be this years new zone. Hammerfell is likely coming after ES VI drops so it doesn't deflate the hypetrain for that release.

    Now if they start going to Akavir and Pyandonean Isles, that would be a great move after they "finish" Tamriel.

    Yes, I do know all that. I understand that what I would prefer is not likely to happen any time soon (if ever). The issue for me is, I'm still playing "real" Skyrim and Oblivion, and having analogues of them in ESO is just not - believable to me. And yes, I understand that I'm a minority of one - a total outlier.

    Sometimes I just can't NOT say what I think. I do try to phrase it politely (mostly)....

    I never did get to thoroughly explore the Forgotten Vale when I played Skyrim. I was always anticipating getting to the DLC content in all my playthroughs but all my modding mid game kept causing problems that just stole my desire to play.

    I get some people only ever wanting new shinies. "If I wanted old I'd just go play the original". I though love nostalgia, and experiencing old ideas in new context can still be fun. See the fan remake of Half-Life, "Black Mesa" for example.

    Well. ZoS has states they plan to fill the map eventually. So that little area between Wrothgar and Skyrim may get filled in eventually.

    True! I often wonder what they could shoehorn into that - as well as the similarly small area between N and S Elsweyr.

    As I’ve discussed previously, there’s a lot to fit in that area:
    The Western Reach
    Jehanna
    Direnni ruins
    Probably Orcs
    And the Forgotten Vale, which could feature a whole Snow Elven community

    Or central area of Black Marsh with Helstorm city. There is pretty much "zero" lore stuff established regarding that place (other that it is hard to get to) so they have no limitations when it comes to what they can add. I imagine that we could get an "un-destroyed" Xanmeer architecture city that could be very different from a "tribal" Argonian stuff we have seen so far. I imagine it could be a small enclave of the "ancient Argonians" that still have statehood and survived as a nation, while argonian civilisation in other parts of Black Marsh has fallen due to constant invasions and are now divided into small tribes (and rest is in ruins, hence the ruined Xanmeers).

    This cave (along with Blackreach) never did anything for me. But I did like the Forgotten Vale with the Auriel falmer castle thing. Falmer related content in the future would be cool.
