    The worst part is when it finally puts you in a group, your healer turns into a werewolf, your tank has 14k HP and the dps is heavy armor, using a restro staff and a two handed sword on the backbar. Then comes the 15 minute penalty before the cycle starts anew.

    Rulz of Morrowind:
    • The first rule of Morrowind is: You do not talk about Morrowind.
    • The second rule of Morrowind is: You do not talk about Morrowind.
    • Third rule of Morrowind: Someone yells NDA stuff, uploads images, streams, the game is over.
    • Fourth rule: only invited players can test.
    • Fifth rule: one invite at a time, fellas.
    • Sixth rule: crying or bashing on pts.
    • Seventh rule: NDA will go on as long as they have to.
    • And the eighth and final rule: If this is your first invite at Morrowind, you have to play.

    So no mention of ESO+

    ok...

    That's at the very end of the article:
    After Morrowind

    I've devoted a lot of space here to discuss our new content delivery strategy and how Morrowind will work. But we're doing a lot more than that – we'll have our dungeon-based DLC in Q3 and a content-based DLC in Q4. As usual, we will be selling them a la carte in the Crown Store and they will be available to ESO Plus members. We will also delve deep into Cyrodiil performance issues and provide much needed relief. And each update will come with a base patch full of bug fixes, quality of life updates, and balance changes. We'll release much more information about all of these later in the year.

    Looking forward to seeing what those will be.

    Why? Murkmire is still on the map.
    We've been waiting for the zone for 2+ years now. I keep hoping the next DLC brings it to fruition, but so far... no.

    Actually just posted in another thread, but we do not plan on raising the gear cap with Morrowind.

    Excellent news! Thank you for letting us know.

    Looking forward to hearing about the Cyrodiil performance changes that Matt mentioned. Is that coming with the expansion or a later update?

    @ZOS_GinaBruno @ZOS_JessicaFolsom How long must the diehard fans wait for Spellcrafting? Some of us have been rather patient.

    My guess is that Spellcrafting is now a Chapter thing, so next possible release time is 2Q 2018.

    Murkmire could be the 4Q 2017 or 1Q 2018 DLC.

    Other thoughts:
    It sounds like Orsinium would have been a Chapter, if they had that concept back then.

    I am not exactly happy with having to upgrade for $40 every year, like clockwork. This is a lot more frequent than I was expecting. I figured they would have a team working on a 2 year cadence and we would get a Chapter every 2 years. This is putting a rush on this Chapter content, in my opinion. ZOS tends to leave things on the cutting room floor when they rush stuff.

    "Each ESO Chapter will feature a self-contained story and zone that can be experienced by itself without needing to travel out to the main game."

    Does it mean the main story won't continue? Is Darien lost forever? :(

    Say it ain't so!
    Yeah, that's kind of confusing what they said about continuing the story. Perhaps there's story related quests there that continue IN ADDITION to regular quests, and the story quests only apply if you've finished the main storyline (such as when the Prophet appears).

    @ZOS_GinaBruno So does this mean that we are getting expansion packs every year?

    @ZOS_GinaBruno any chance we will be able to make any of our current characters switch to the Warden class? What about increasing the character limit beyond 12?

    I'm going to be honest here.

    I am not usually a fan of of such mechanism, but would happily pay £15 to change my main to a Warden once Morrowind launches.

    I mean even unlocking Mount Upgrades on a new toon will take half a year, I'd seriously like to avoid that if possible. Skill points don't bother me as much, there's plenty of them to earn as you level a new toon.

    @ZOS_GinaBruno is a Class Change even possible with the game architecture as it stands? If it is not them please just put us out of our misery now so we can have time to adjust before Morrowind.

    I've been waiting for Murkmire since it was announced, but it's fallen by the wayside.

    And yeah, I imagine Wrothgar would have been a Chapter. I think that ZOS overestimated development time for major zones and the time it needs to produce high quality quests. I'm fine with a yearly expansion so long as the quality is there, and it contains at least ONE Wrothgar sized zone or multiple smaller zones. The 4th quarter DLC is the one I'm curious about. Is it a zone? Is it just a quest pack? Is it a trial?
