Elder Scrolls Online is celebrating the 25th Anniversary of the Elder Scrolls franchise by unleashing dragons on Elsweyr.
This celebration allows ESO players to begin the journey to the Khajiiti homeleand by completing the free Elsweyr Prologue quest.
There’s a Free Play Event going on right now in ESO as well. From now until Wednesday, April 3rd, The Elder Scrolls Online is available to play for free on all platforms.
Free players will also be able to checkout the Elsweyr Prologue Quest, since it is part of the base game. Free Play Event also allows free players to visit Morrowind and explore Tamriel and the island home of the Dark Elves.
You will need a PlayStation Plus or Xbox Live Gold membership if you’re checking it out on consoles.
If you play during the Free Play Event and find that you’re enjoying the game, you can pick up a copy of the game on sale.
The Elder Scrolls Online: Summerset will be on sale until April 2nd, while The Elder Scrolls Online Standard Edition (just the base game) will be on sale until April 9th.
The Prologue is part of The Elder Scrolls Online base game, meaning you don’t need the Wrathstone DLC or a The Elder Scrolls Online: Elsweyr pre-purchase to experience this part of the story.
You can begin this new adventure in two ways:
Get the FREE Crown Store Quest Starter item, the Sealed Imperial Summons, and use it from your inventory.
You can find this within the Quest Starter category.
Venture to the first major city of your alliance and look for the Imperial messenger, Anais Davaux, near the Impresario’s tent.
Aldmeri players can find her outside the northern gates of Vulkhel Guard.
Daggerfall players can find her on approach to Daggerfall City from the east.
Ebonheart players can find her at Davon’s Watch near the east gate.
Completing the Prologue quests grants you the Dragon Flight Illusion Gem memento reward, allowing you to summon a spectral group of mini-dragons!
If you wish to continue aiding the Khajiiti effort against the Dragons, you may undertake daily quests from Zahiri, who sets up camp near Abnur Tharn’s camp at the Grahtwood entrance to Elsweyr. You may do every quest she offers once per day, and each rewards you with a cache of treasures from the Northern Elsweyr Defense Force. These caches can include Runebox fragments for the Guar Stomp emote!
The Elder Scrolls Online: Elsweyr releases on June 4th.
