    Now, a constant stream of supplies and the establishment of powerful siege weapons in the Enclave's courtyard, suggest that the Order of the Hour has reopened the fort and begun preparations to face a threat that no one else has yet detected.

    Interesting. Are they preparing to fight the Dark Brotherhood, or getting ready for the previously-foreshadowed machinations of Daedric Princes?

    (People on the PTS, don't answer that.)

    I like most of what I see "feature wise". Although I'm really not impressed with this small zone scale direction your going lately Zenimax. Given how long we generally wait for this content I expect something the size of Wrothgar or bigger what in Nirn is going on? I want to be able to look at the map of Tamriel at some point and get a sense that I can explorer it all eventually. But given this rate I can't frankly foresee this ever happening. Its highly unlikely any of us will be able to experience Tamriel to its fullest potential if you guys continue down this route. Please I beg you Zenimax don't make this be a continued trend going forward. I want actual zone sized regions not little bite sized bits.

    Yes it's Anvil, you deform your own games, when Oblivion was released on PC in french , the town's name was ANVIL..... WTF Coeur-Enclume, we not want this name. We want Anvil!!!!

    Probably once they finally finish changing the game. The change to how trials are scaled. The Vet system removal. The supose change to how world zone treat players. Housing. My guess is the next dlc is going be a content expander. Instead of a new area we will get a whole bunch of new dungeons, or or new hot spots added to the original areas. It is the reason I think they are being hush hush about the 3rd quarter and 4th quarter dlc.

    I must say that I want Anvil too for the french version, it was the town's name since Oblivion (and if I remember, even before when it was cited on some book). I don't even play in french so I'll have Anvil whatever you do, but for the lore's sake please give to the town his former name.

    Here's the point, sorry to say.

    How about playing in english as regular lore-lovers, and let Zenimax translators do their job already ?
    Coeur-enclume, Anvil, both are intended to be the same town juste like Pékin/Beijing, or La Nouvelle-Orléans/New-Orleans IRL. Plus, any english-french translation is not even "diegesis" !

    Such complaining is heartbreaking, knowing all the core matters unsolved on European server, such as language blind phasing in game ...

    Isn't Anvil supposed to be a fishing village or something in this time period?

    Its just so small. We ever going to get DLC like Wrothgar again? Or something with a bigger map. Maybe a couple public dungeons and multiple delves.

    It was originally, but it has evolved into a proper city as of 2E 583. Which is when the Dark Brotherhood DLC takes place.

    I'd imagine that Vvardenfell, which has recently been datamined to be a future DLC zone, will likely be around the size Wrothgar. But when that's getting released is anyone's guess.

    The datamined info includes 3 player housing locations. Probably won't release until after housing is released, or at the same time. Isn't Murkmire supposed to come first?

    A good translator uses consistent naming all throughout a series instead of changing a proper name after five installments for no important reason. It certainly isn't a game-breaking mistake (and nobody claimed so), but it's worth pointing out regardless.

    Perhaps, but we really don't know.

    I wasn't expecting a map the size of Wrothgar because they are very different kind of DLC's. In Wrothgar, all the related content is in Wrothgar, it's all mashed together in one big delicious adventure zone, whereas in DB and TG, the content takes you all around Tamirel and the new locations serve as 'home bases'. So I guess they didn't feel the need to give us a massive zone.
