Welcome to The Elder Scrolls Online v4.3.0 and the Wrathstone DLC game pack! Wrathstone introduces two new 4-player dungeons – Frostvault and Depths of Malatar – in addition to a number of new item sets and collectibles. The base game features a new Zone Guide system that will assist you in finding content to complete in each zone. Additionally, we’ve added a new Battleground map and updated several older PvP item sets, as well as updated the Guild Trader Interface to add some new features.

Our main focus for combat and gameplay this update was to focus more on racial balance; you can read more about our goals in this forum post. Please note we’ve refunded all racial passives, so make sure to re-spend them after you log in.

All PC/Mac North American characters have been copied, and a Wrathstone template is also available for you to use. We hope you enjoy this latest update, which is approximately 3.53GB in size, and we can’t wait to read your feedback!

    Wrathstone DLC Game Pack

    Two New Dungeons
    • Frostvault: Despite events in Volenfell, the scholar Tharayya refuses to be deterred from her quest for Dwarven relics. Tharayya’s research leads her to a long-lost Dwarven ruin buried in a thawing glacier, where the Dwarves secreted away an object of immeasurable importance. Within the complex, a massive vault holds a piece of the legendary Wrathstone, a tablet carved with mysterious and arcane writing. With your help, she’ll brave the Frostvault and seek the Wrathstone.
    • Depths of Malatar: An unlikely partnership with the spirit of her treacherous ex-husband, Quintus Verres, leads the acclaimed relic hunter Tharrayya to the wreckage of an Imperial fort built to plunder Ayleid ruins on the Gold Coast. Believed to be abandoned after its destruction in an unnamed calamity, Tharayya’s search reveals a terrible secret—the Imperials never left. With your help, Tharayya hopes to overcome the unnatural guardians protecting the legendary artifact that brought the Imperials to Garlas Malatar, and to ruin.
    • Frostvault and Depths of Malatar are 4-player dungeons that can be reached via Eastmarch and the Gold Coast respectively.
