Travel to the volcanic island of Vvardenfell and explore a land of Dark Elves, Living Gods, and bizarre creatures as adventurers from every alliance answer Lord Vivec’s call. An ominous prophecy and an insidious plot threaten all of Vvardenfell—can you save the island from a looming disaster? Wander the harsh landscape as an emissary for Lord Vivec, performing missions for the Great Houses, delving into mysterious ruins, and meeting unique challenges head-on in the shadow of the rumbling Red Mountain. The fate of Morrowind rests in your hands!

  • If using an existing character, you can do one of the following to travel to Vvardenfell:
    • Open your Collections, select Stories and then Morrowind under the Chapters tab. From there, you can accept the starting quest.
    • To get to Vvardenfell, seek out the navigator, Captain Jenassa, located near the docks in the major cities throughout Tamriel. Talk to her and she will offer to transport you to Vivec City or Seyda Neen.
    • You can also take a boat located in Mournhold, Wayrest, or Woodhearth.
  • If creating a new character:
    • Create a new character and select Play Tutorial. You will start in a new tutorial designed specifically for Morrowind players.
    • Alternatively, you can choose Skip Tutorial. Your character will automatically start on the dock at Seyda Neen in the new Vvardenfell zone.

Upgrading to Morrowind
Everyone who logs into ESO who has not yet upgraded to Morrowind will see a registration screen that will notify you that Morrowind is available, and will give you instructions for upgrading the base game to Morrowind via a simple digital upgrade purchase. This screen is also the main interface for entering retail Morrowind codes – anyone who has purchased Morrowind new at retail (starting June 6) will use this screen to register their purchase by entering the code included in their physical retail box.

Additionally, we’ve added a notification and UI button at the bottom of the character select screen that will bring you back to this registration screen when you wish to upgrade.

New Public Dungeons
Two new public dungeons are available for you to explore in Morrowind.

  • Nchuleftingth: Help Neramo the scholar uncover the secrets of Nchuleftingth and prevent an unscrupulous ruins robber from plundering ancient Dwarven technology. Explore the Ashlands in the east to uncover this Dwemer ruin.
  • Forgotten Wastes: On the northern coast, enter the Forgotten Wastes to explore ancient Dark Elf ruins and solve a murder mystery while dealing with evil cultists intent on resurrecting a long-lost Dunmer House.

New Playable Class: The Warden

Wardens have a strong set of abilities focused on supporting their allies, but they can also focus their skill selection and morphs on solo combat. If you like to take hits, deal damage, or heal, this class is for you. Wardens are able to summon icy barriers to protect their allies, sprout healing plants to restore them, and command a savage grizzly to attack their enemies. This versatile class uses the power of Y’ffre’s blessing to help deal with any situation. To read more about the Warden’s three skill lines – Animal Companions, Green Balance, and Winter’s Embrace – please visit our website article here.
PVP Battlegrounds

The Elder Scrolls Online 3.0.5 Morrowind and Update 14 includes Battlegrounds, a fast-paced, small-scale PVP zones designed for three teams of four players each. Alliance affiliation doesn’t matter in this new PVP mode, so feel free to play with or against your friends and foes from Cyrodiil! To get into the fight quickly, simply open your Activity Finder, navigate to the Battlegrounds option, and queue. For a bit more information, keep on reading!

  • You can queue solo or with a group of 2, 3 or 4 players into a Battleground. Large groups cannot queue for Battlegrounds.
  • When queued, you’ll be placed into one of three maps:
    • Foyada Quarry: Solid ground and lava pools play a key role in this open field battleground.
    • Ald Carac: An ancient Dwemer site recently excavated which offers close quarter battles and tight spaces.
    • Ularra: This overgrown Daedric site still resonates with ancient portals.
  • One of three game modes will be chosen at random when going into a Battleground:
    • Team Deathmatch: Get points for killing other player characters! This game mode also features Sigils of Power that spawn randomly during the match.
    • Capture the Flag: Grab the enemy relic and bring it back to yours, but your relic must be safe at home to capture an enemy’s relic.
    • Domination: Land grab at its purest.  There are four capture points to battle over to earn points.
  • The Elder Scrolls Online 3.0.5 Morrowind and Update 14 brings three teams you’ll be assigned to when in a Battleground: Pit Daemons, Storm Lords or Fire Drakes.  The colors associated with these teams are Green, Purple, and Orange, respectively.
  • Battleground matches last a maximum of 15 minutes but can end early if the maximum score is reached. Game modes currently have a maximum score of 500 points.
  • When a Battleground ends, you’ll earn rewards based on whether your team came in first, second or third. Rewards include items, gold, XP and Alliance Points.
  • During a Battleground, you’ll earn Medals which are granted based on your actions to progress your team towards victory specific to each game mode. For example, in a Team Deathmatch game, you’ll earn Medals for getting killing blows or healing allies. In a Capture the Flag match, you’ll get Medals for capturing the flag, but not for kill streaks.
    • Medals influence the quality of a reward you’ll receive at the end of a match.  The more Medals you’ve earned, the better chance you have to get your item reward upgraded to blue or purple quality!
    • Medals have a score associated with them which are added onto one of three weekly Leaderboards. These Leaderboards are divided by game types, so you’ll only earn Medals for that Leaderboard type.  The three Leaderboards include:
      • Team Deathmatch: Only Medals from Team Deathmatch go into this Leaderboard.
      • Flag Games: Capture the Flag Medals and other “mobile flag games” to be added in future updates go into this Leaderboard.
      • Land Grab: Domination Medals and other “stationary banner games” to be added in future updates go into this Leaderboard.
    • At the end of the week, players on the Leaderboard will be awarded items based on their rank on the Leaderboards.
  • Leaving a Battleground before the match is over will incur a penalty.
    • This is currently set to block you from queueing for another Battleground for 20 minutes, as well as suppress any AP-earning events.
  • All Battlegrounds currently disable bonuses from Champion Points.
  • You can pick up daily quests for Battlegrounds in one of three locations from a Battlemaster: in the Gladiator’s Quarters near Vivec City, or at the entrance for each Battleground.
New Trial: Halls of Fabrication

Through a mysterious twist of fate, an anomalous rift to a strange realm has opened beneath the freshly-grown tower of Tel Fyr, spilling eerily life-like automata into the world. Left unchecked, these machines threaten to subsume everything on the surface into their alien mechanical paradigm. Brave souls are needed to go beyond the rift and find the source of these dangerous machines and stop them from converting Tamriel into their own image. Joining forces with the renowned wizard and planar traveler, Divayth Fyr, you must overcome the unknown beyond the rift and be the first living souls to tread into the Halls of Fabrication.

  • Halls of Fabrication is a 12-player Trial located in Morrowind, and features a Normal version in addition to a challenging Veteran version!
  • To enter Halls of Fabrication, you have two options:
    • Travel to the tower of Tel Fyr, located in eastern Morrowind.
    • Speak with Daynillo Rethul, located in Vivec City on the docks, to receive the quest To Tel Fyr which will take you to the entrance.
  • There are unique item sets available only within Halls of Fabrication which grant unique, group-based PvE bonuses.

New Crafting Motifs
The Elder Scrolls Online 3.0.5 also added four new Motifs for you to collect and craft!

  • The Ashlander style can be learned from the Ashlanders of Vvardenfell.
    • Motif chapters can occasionally be found as rewards for performing daily quests for Numani-Rasi or Huntmaster Sorim-Nakar.
    • The style item, Ash Canvas, can also be earned from the same quests.
  • The Buoyant Armiger style can be obtained from treasure chests and treasure maps across Vvardenfell.
    • Motif chapters are rare, but show up more often in higher-difficulty chests and treasure map chests. By quirk of fate, those who have proven themselves friends of the island and the living god Vivec are more likely to find its chapters or book than others.
    • The style item, Volcanic Viridian, can be refined from Viridian Dust, which can be found uncommonly on any harvestable resource in Vvardenfell.
  • The Morag Tong style can be learned from the Hall of Justice in Vivec City.
    • Motif chapters can occasionally be found in Bounty Dispensations or Explorer’s Dispensations awarded to those who complete tasks for the Hall of Justice.
    • The style item, Boiled Carapace, can also be earned from the same quests.
  • The Militant Ordinator style can be acquired from the Battleground Supplies Merchant near Vivec City.
    • Each motif chapter can be purchased for Alliance Points from Colotarion, in the Gladiator’s Quarters.
    • The style item, Lustrous Sphalerite, can be refined from Dull Sphalerite, which is sold for Alliance Points from the same merchant.

New Homes
Three new properties are now available to move into in Morrowind.

  • Saint Delyn Penthouse: For the city-loving Dark Elf, there’s no better choice of residence than the Saint Delyn Penthouse in the heart of Vivec City, on the Waistworks level of the Saint Delyn canton.
    • By completing the quest, “A Friend In Need”, you can earn a modest inn room in the St. Delyn Canton of Vivec City.
    • This inn room can also be purchased for 3000 gold if your character has already completed the quest in the base game or if you already own another inn-room.
  • Ald Velothi Harbor House: On the coast north of Gnisis, this three-level home in the Redoran “bug-house” style comes with a walled courtyard, a nearby dock, and convenient access to the nearby ruins of Ashalmawia and Arkngthunch-Sturdumz.
  • Amaya Lake Lodge: Enjoy the opulent luxury of a country lodge built by the Dark Elves of an earlier, more expansive era—a walled estate with a grand multistory house, roof balcony, stable, storage building, a well, and room for a formal garden.
    • Both the Ald Velothi Harbor House and Amaya Lake Lodge homes require Morrowind achievements in order to purchase them with gold, and are also available for Crowns in furnished and unfurnished variants. Note that these two homes can be purchased for Crowns even if you do not have access to Morrowind, but leaving your new home will take you back to your last safe location outside of Morrowind.

New Furnishings and Furnishing Plans
The Elder Scrolls Online 3.0.5 Morrowind and Update 14 brings many new Furnishing Plans can be found across Vvardenfell in trunks, backpacks, and other common sources for recipes and plans. While they will only appear in Vvardenfell, they can be traded freely or sold on Guild Traders.

  • Four new Furnishers are available in Morrowind:
    • Drops-No-Glass, the Achievement Furnisher for Morrowind, can be found in Saint Delyn’s Inn in Vivec City.
    • Uzipa, a Home Goods Furnisher, sells a variety of volcanic stone, mushrooms, and plants, and can also be found in Saint Delyn’s Inn.
    • Llivas Driler and Brelda Ofemalen, the Battleground Furnishers, sell banners and relics associated with the Storm Lords, Fire Drakes, and Pit Daemons. They can be found in the Gladiator’s Quarters in Vivec City.
  • Xanil Theran, the Luxury Furnisher, continues to cycle his stock of unusual furnishings. This update’s themes will highlight Morrowind’s unique past, including furnishings associated with several of the most secretive and powerful entities to influence Morrowind’s history.
  • There are also a few unique sources of furnishings and plans with the launch of the Elder Scrolls Online 3.0.5 Morrowind and Update 14:
    • Daedric Furnishing Plans
      • The reward chests for Dark Anchors across Tamriel now have a small chance to contain a Daedric furnishing plan.
      • These same furnishing plans can be found, more rarely, from slain humanoid Daedra, such as Dremora or Xivkyn.
    • Dwarven Furnishing Plans
      • Dwarven constructs and world objects within Dwarven ruins anywhere in Tamriel will rarely have plans for Dwarven machinery and pipeworks.
      • Dwarven constructs will also sometimes provide undamaged cogs and gears when slain, which you can display in your home.
    • Justice-Related Furnishing Plans and Furnishings
      • Some of the citizens of Vvardenfell are carrying new furnishing items or plans in their pockets. Perhaps you’ll help lighten their load?
      • A few of the more prudent islanders have stowed their favorite furnishings in safeboxes. Surely, these will be safe from any prying fingers…
    • Treasure Chests
      • The finest treasure chests in Vvardenfell will rarely contain new paintings specific to Morrowind.
    • Quest-Related Furnishing Rewards
      • Daily tasks for the Ashlanders of Vvardenfell will rarely reward furnishing plans for Ashlander dishware, or directly reward a type of dining knife Ashlanders favor.
    • Harvesting-Related Furnishing Rewards
      • Mushrooms and plants in Vvardenfell will rarely produce accompanying foliage or fungi when harvested. Beetles with fungal infestations may, as well.
    • Ancestral Tombs
      • Ancient Velothi ancestral tombs will also rarely have their own unique furnishings within their offering urns.

New Collectibles
A cornucopia of new collectibles awaits the avid adventurer in the ESO 3.0.5 Morrowind and Update 14. See below for details!

  • Costumes
    • Regalia of the Scarlet Judge: The famed vigilante known as the Scarlet Judge has upheld justice in Morrowind for generations, and has most recently been spotted near the town of Suran.
    • Sixth House Robe: Officially, there is no Sixth House, and these robes do not exist. Unofficially, Sixth House cultists in the Forgotten Wastes have been identified with fragments of these ancient robes in their possession. If one were to acquire all seven pieces, they might be able to reform them into an intact garment. What would such a relic be worth, to the right person?
  • Furnishings
    • Vvardenfell Scale Model: Librarian Bradyn in Vivec City believes that completing such a model will reveal the location of the lost Library of Andule, an ancient repository of the knowledge of the Great Houses.
    • Assembly General (Trophy): Complete the Halls of Fabrication to bring home the head of this brazen behemoth.
    • Assembly General (Bust): Complete the Halls of Fabrication on Veteran difficulty to earn this tasteful bust of the Assembly General.
  • Head & Body Markings
    • Morag Tong Face & Body Tattoos: Assist Naryu Virian and the Morag Tong in and around Balmora to earn the right to display these striking tattoos.
    • Buoyant Armiger Body Tattoos: Be named Champion of Vivec to earn the right to wear the body tattoos of a Buoyant Armiger.
  • Mementos
    • Neramo’s Lightning Stick: Aid the artificer Neramo in the Dwarven ruins of Nchuleftingth to earn this shocking memento.
    • Dreamer’s Chime: Complete the quest “Echoes of a Fallen House” in the Forgotten Wastes public dungeon to recover this haunting bell.
    • Replica Tonal Inverter: Designed to temporarily disrupt the flow of energy in magical devices, help invent the device this replica is based on in your quest to aid Vivec.
  • Personalities
    • Telvanni Magister: Assist an Argonian slave in her meteoric rise through the ranks of House Telvanni, and learn to adopt the mannerisms of a Telvanni Magister.
  • Pets
    • Dwemer Theodolite: Sentries such as this one may have once been used to survey subterranean areas, and were likely involved in the construction of Nchuleftingth. It is theorized that some of the guardian constructs in this public dungeon may contain repurposed parts from defunct Theodolites, though finding a functional part would be a challenge for even a seasoned adventurer. With all seven parts, the mechanism could be reconstructed. Whether kept as a loyal pet or sold to the highest bidder, such a device would be sure to draw attention.
  • Skins
    • Fabrication Sheath: Proudly display your victory from Veteran Halls of Fabrication with this body sheath of burnished bronze!

New Titles
There’s never been a better time to seek your glory! Whether you choose to make your name on the isle of Vvardenfell, in Sotha Sil’s Halls of Fabrication, or in the high-intensity combat of Battleground matches, you can proudly display your accomplishments with one of 21 new titles (unlisted to avoid spoilers!)

New Dyes
This update introduces six new dyes, available for use at dye stations after completing various Morrowind-related achievements.

  • Colossus Brass: This rare dye, named for the distinctive sheen of the Dwarven Colossus, can be earned by completing Halls of Fabrication.
  • Vehk’s Mystic Blue: This rare dye is only available to Lord Vivec’s personal champions.
  • Warden’s Moss Green: This common faded green can be earned by defeating a total of 100 Wardens in Battlegrounds or the Alliance War.
  • Firedrake’s Flame: Based on the heraldry of the Firedrakes, this uncommon dye can be earned by defeating 1,000 opponents in Battlegrounds.

  • Stormlord’s Lightning: Based on the heraldry of the Stormlords, this uncommon dye can be earned by seizing 250 capture points in Battlegrounds.
