Those among you that are currently dabbling in The Elder Scrolls Online will be glad to hear that Update 11 has recently been unleashed upon the live servers. The update has brought with it numerous qualify of life fixes, balance changes, general adjustments, and naturally, a whole slew of cosmetic items because as everyone knows, the one with the shiniest armor is definitely the best player. You can read the full patch notes by heading over here.
While Update 11 is completely free for both PC and consoles players, the Shadow of the Hist DLC pack that features two new dungeons and a bunch of cosmetic items is unfortunately not, unless you are currently subscribed to ESO. If you are, or if you're just interested in what what sort of trouble you can get up to, here's the recently posted sneak peek:
Cradle of Shadows
The Argonians of the Dark Brotherhood need your help against a cadre of rogue assassins who threaten to hurl all Black Marsh into bloody chaos. Fight your way into the Cradle of Shadows to uncloak the secrets of the twisted Silken Ring!
The Cradle of Shadows dungeon features three new item sets, challenging new achievements with an appearance reward, and a new monster mask set.
Ruins of Mazzatun
Venture into Mazzatun, the “Puzzle City" of the Xit-Xaht tribe of Argonians, who have been forcing other Lizardfolk to work as slave labor on a project that has driven their masters mad! Can you free them in time?
The Ruins of Mazzatun dungeon features three new item sets, challenging new achievements with an appearance reward, and a new monster mask set.
As I've mentioned before, Shadow of the Hist is freely available to anyone that is currently subscribed to ESO, though if you are so inclined you can purchase it from the in-game store for 1,500 crowns, or 2,500 crowns if you want to get some of the cosmetic extras. If you're wondering what all of this make-believe money actually amounts to, the answer is €13 for the basic pack and ~18 for the Collector's Bundle.
Whether its worth it or not, I honestly can't tell you as I've played ESO for less than 10 minutes, but a free update is always a good excuse to come back and see what's new.
