In this latest ESO expansion, players will travel to the eastern coast of Morrowind, to the Telvanni Peninsula, the home of the House Telvani and the Necrom city. Players will also get to explore Apocrypha, Hermaeus Mora’s realm of Oblivion. Both zones are brimming with new quests, bosses, dungeons, and more.
