With The Elder Scrolls Online now passing its third week of being officially available to the public, developer Zenimax Online has taken time out of their rather busy schedule to reveal some further details on the upcoming Craglorn content.
The new behind-the-scenes video takes a rather in-depth look specifically at 12-player Trials, which are the equivalent of raids but with a slight twist: you'll only be given a set amount of resurrections between your 12 players. With this constant reminder lingering over your party, you'll want to gather up the very best of your friends or guild to complete the rather challenging content. Of course, there is a silver lining to the difficulty: additional rewards will be granted to those who defeat the weekly challenge with one of the top times across the megaserver.
Those expecting to spend hours and hours going through the 12-player Trials will be glad to hear that this isn't the case, instead the expected completion time is around 90 minutes. Check out the video below for a further look into the content.
Alongside the Craglorn update, Zenimax Online boss Matt Firor has taken to the game's forums to outline the very first "State of the Game Address" to players, detailing just what exactly the team are working on. Of the bug fixes, tweaks and changes to the core content, Firor also notes the developer's ongoing war against black market activity in the game - a problem that now accounts for up to 85 per cent of customer service calls and emails.
"Please know that we are doing everything we can to combat the gold spammers and bots - especially ones that 'camp' dungeon bosses," Firor wrote. "I play the game every day; I see them too, and yes, they drive me crazy."
Developers have faced a "daily running battle" with gold spammers since launch, he added, "moving them from global chat, to in-game email, to creating bogus guilds and inviting players - and we continue to take measures to keep them away from players, even when it isn't always apparent that we are."
The post is rather long, so wander over to the forums for a full look at what players can expect from the future of Elder Scrolls Online, including hints towards the Craglorn update hitting the Public Test Server in the next week or so.
