I haven’t played eso that long, like some fans have! This game has been around long before it has even been an online game. Does anyone know what happened to Dwarfs, unicorns and mermaids? Do you think eso would bring these creatures back to the game like dragons? Anyone know the history on these creatures? Did mermaids even exist in this world? I think I love this game!!! Lol

    If you want the non-mobile version of the links Veranis gave take the "m" out so it reads //en.uesp

    While we never really see any unicorns in ESO there are Indriks which are nature spirits that are kind of like Spriggans, but they're native to Nirn instead of the Hunting Grounds. In the March of Sacrifices dungeon where we go to the Hunting Grounds to participate in one of Hircine's hunts we go after an Indrik instead of a Unicorn.

    Ah, I never noticed that about those links. Thanks!

    Dwarfs aren't actually dwarfs but elves. And they will never be brought back into ESO (unless we meet a certain character) as Bethesda and Todd specifically doesn't want to bring them back or reveal what happened, ever.

    You're welcome! I discovered it a month or so back and wondered why my desktop was showing mobile stuff lol.

    Is the plural for dwarves in ESO dwarfs or something? Or does no one care to use the right plural?

    When I think about dwarfs as mythological beings that appear, for example in the Nibelung legend, I always have to remember that in Central Europe it has been proven that children worked in the mines in the first millennium BC and the whole idea of the dwarfs, of the small creatures working under the earth in the mines, may be originally related to that. So, I think the Dwemer idea is much more pleasing.

    Fun fact. The "correct" plural for dwarf IS dwarfs, their things are dwarfen. We've all been influenced by a single author's choice.

    The great JR Tolkien deliberately changed it in the Hobbit (maybe to follow the elf/elves/elven convention). His editor repeatedly challenged this, and in a ballsy move Tolkien bragged "I wrote the english dictionary!" (he worked on it, and Tolkien is about as big a word nerd as ever lived).

    Crap I didn't know that. I just never see it spelled any other way normally. Well, thanks.

    All three of these exist in various ways, as said. The only one that we'll never see "come back" as such are the Dwemer (dwarves). They disappeared almost 3,000 years before the events of ESO, and they've not appeared in games set after ESO except as ghosts and in one specific instance. Exactly where they went is technically a mystery, but I think we've got a reasonable idea about what's most likely to have happened to them.
