Changes Coming to Craglorn in The Elder Scrolls Online's Next Update

By Kelly Packard, 3 months ago
The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited is approaching Update 12. Though there are some quality of life additions and changes, the main attraction of this upcoming patch is a massive overhaul to Craglorn, which should bring a smile to achievement hunters' faces.

The Elder Scrolls Online

When Craglorn was first introduced, new and solo players quickly learned this zone was out of their league, and was only designed for high level, coordinated players. According to the developers, the entire questline will now be able to be completed by solo players, and for all players, the difficulty of the enemies will now match your level. You can read more details below:

With Update 12 and One Tamriel, solo players of all levels will be able to participate in this content. Now Craglorn, and every other zone in the game after the One Tamriel update, will automatically level your characters to match the difficulty of the content, and puzzles that originally required two or more players can now be completed by solo players. No longer will your character get attacked by and die to a swarm of vicious wasps as soon as you leave the village.

Now players of all levels can enter Craglorn, investigate the disappearance of the constellations, and uncover the Celestial threat to Tamriel. The zone's entire main story can now be completed by solo players, who will be rewarded with a Nirnhoned weapon or armor piece.
There is an achievement tied to completing the entire Craglorn questline, which currently only 1% of tracked gamers have obtained:

In addition to this, "the overland content, the daily quests, and the dungeons in Craglorn" have been adjusted, too. Repeatable quests that needed a group of players to complete certain puzzles have been reworked to be doable solo, though the developers emphasize most of the content aside from the specifically-reworked quests are still best played with a group.

Last but not least, there are some small updates to quest indicators:

Craglorn, and the rest of One Tamriel, will also feature improved quest indicators in your quest tracker, quest announcement message, and on your compass. A group icon will appear next to the quest name in both the quest announcement message and the quest tracker to tell you if a quest is meant to be played solo or in a group. A blue repeatable quest icon displays in the compass and in the game world prior to bestowal if the quest is repeatable.
The update will be aptly titled "Return to Craglorn." Though there is no release date for the update yet, or even a release window, we'll be sure to let you know when we have more information.
