Abnur Tharn Loading Screen

Does anyone know what this loading screen is used for? It's been in the data files since launch. It's title is Chapter 3.5, which would line it up with the quest The Tharn Speaks, but that takes place in existing Tier 2 delves, and therefore uses those delves' own loading screens. I assumed it was therefore just a remnant of an unused location in the main quest, but the loading screen was updated in Update 6 with a new design. Has anyone seen this in-game? Did they change the art design of a loading screen that's never actually used?

    Not sure but they're very cool. We should have a few character loading screens actually, including main characters and maybe a few of random side/quest npcs with a little backstory on them.

    Art is usually created long before it is actually planned for implementation. Things happen in parallel in game development... Lots of things (art, objects, characters, voice files, VFX, etc.) never actually get into a game.

    Sure, that's what I thought was the case here. But if it is not in use in the game, why have they updated it?

    Very interesting, and oddly familiar...
    My guess is that it would be used for Imperial City loading screens.

    Maybe Tharn is in Imperial City? That treacherous little worm needs to protect his daughter, maybe?

    Love his voice though. Superbly provided by the great Alfred Molina.
