On the map this is the only zone that goes by its geographical location. The zone is Anequina it’s like calling the Rift eastern Skyrim. Please don’t make this a precedent ZOS

    I wouldve preferred that, but i think Elsweyr wouldve drawn in more players cause most only know that name abd wouldve just been confused at what Anequina was.

    I think that’s why they named it that too. I’m hoping once they release Q4 they will rename it

    no because southern elsweyr will be probably called southern elsweyr and it will make sense then - besides, the region is no longer called anequina - it was before it became the unified elsweyr

    I'd actually love to see it renamed to Anequina. It's such a neat sounding name, and that's really what the region is called anyway. And then they could call the southern section Pellitine.

    I mean, I get that Elsweyr is supposed to be unified, so the old names would be a bit outdated technically, but it seems like the khajiit often refer to the sections by their old names still anyway.

    Once the Southern Elsweyr region is released in Q4 with it's proper name of "Pellintine", they should then revert the Northern Elsweyr region to it's proper name of "Anequina".


    Then all would be right with this map region. :wink:

    Just as last DLC should be named Pellitine...and if they decide to remove the loading screen between them only then they deserve the name of Elsweyr!

    Isn't Summerset named wrong too. IIRC before the chapter released the whole archipelagos was called Summerset (also containing Auridon, Artaeum, Eyevea...) with the name of the entire big central island being Alinor.

    They could still have called the expansion Elsweyr. Just like how the first expansion was called Morrowind but the map is called Vvardenfell.

    I was going to say there's a small possibility someone might buy the game purely to play Elsweyr and not know how to find it if the map has a different name, but firstly all new characters are forced to start there anyway, and secondly if they know what Elsweyr is and want to play it enough to buy the game I assume they'd know vaugely where in Tamriel it is and could figure it out.

    The name is still a valid description of the zone.

    Besides, the area known as Reaper's March was once known as Northern Valenwood.

    "Elsweyr" is pretty recognizable from the other games. It's where the Khajit come from. That other name? Most players aren't big enough lore nerds to recognize that, let alone know that it is a specific region within this fictional world.

    I can see why they went with Elsweyr.

    In Oblivon, there was the Anequina mod, specifically for northern Elsweyr because the region in books was always referred to by that name.

    Nothing stopping them from using Elswyr on promotional material and as the name for the Chapter while sticking true to the actual name of the region. They've done this with at least some of the DLC and Chapters. Orsinium, Thieves Guild, Dark Brotherhood, and Morrowind.

    On the other hand, I'm confused as to why in location list it's just "Elsweyr", when in the loading screen it's called "Northern Elsweyr". Aren't other regions Elsweyr?

    They called the Morrowind Chapter "Morrowind", but still called the zone Vvardenfell. It can be done.

    They only called it Morrowind to cash in the anniversary, pretty sure that it was original marketed as Vvardenfell.

    Until I can play it for more than 5 mins without 999+ ping, followed by crashing, I don't really care, to be honest.

    I do have internet issues, at the moment, but I don't have this problem to anything like this extent in other zones.

    There are other areas of the game with more than one name, and real life cities can be called more than one thing. The older the city, the more likely it has an old name.

    OlayOkay, then following zones are badly named I guess:
    Vvardenfell, Deshaan, Stonefalls and Bal Foyen should be called Morrowind,
    Greenshade, Grahtwood, Malabal Tor and Reapers March be called Valenwood,
    Auridon, Eyevea and Artaeum be called Summerset too,
    Hews Bane, Craglorn and Alik'r be called Hammerfall and so forth.

    Yup, this is pretty much what I was alluding to. You'd have to go pretty deep into the Dork Forest to be this worried about it.

    No. From the history lessons I've picked up from ESO, Anequina doesn't quite exist still. It did in the past. Before the two city states joined together. But now? Definitely not. If I remember right, even the locals talk about Anequina as in past tense.
