With the release of The Elder Scrolls Online''s Deadlands DLC, players will be able to enter a new zone, including the Oblivion plane of the Deadlands. The DLC is a direct continuation and final part of ESO''s 2021 Gates of Oblivion storyline, culminating with Mehrunes Dagon''s last confrontation (at least until the events of The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion).
It''s like other mid-size expansions for The Elder Scrolls Online, like the Clockwork City or Markarth DLC, as it introduces a new questline in a new area alongside group content like Trials and Delves. Although getting to the Deadlands is no small feat for a Tamriel resident, there are certain things to keep an eye on when it comes to the DLC.
Erik Petrovich: Before starting the Deadlands DLC, players should be aware of the story that leads into this new zone, particularly in the Blackwood Chapter. Fargrave is a very unique zone, and every ESO player should try it out at some point. This is because it''s important to follow the predecessor Chapter and, in a lesser degree, the DLC dungeons.
What To Do Before Buying The Deadlands DLC
The Blackwood chapter''s main storyline is inspired by the Blackwood chapter questline, but the quests in the DLC are for the most part distinct from the Dagon story. They culminate in a special three complete quests that officially conclude the Blackwood story. Be sure to finish the main storyline of the Blackwood chapter by finishing the first outline of the main storyline to appreciate Dagon''s intentions in this DLC.
To get access to the Deadlands DLC, players must, of course, own the DLC itself. ESO Plus, a monthly subscription service, which allows members to access all DLC except the most recent Chapter, as Deadlands is not a chapter. However, members of ESO Plus will be permitted to jump into this expansion as soon as it goes live without hiccups. Players who are not subscribed to the DLC will have to purchase the DLC on its own for 2000 Crowns in the in-game currency
How To Get To The Deadlands
The first step to begin your journey in The Elder Scrolls Online''s Deadlands DLC is to travel directly to Fargrave Wayshrine. The map can be found by zooming all the way out to Nirn, not inside Fargrave, but also across the city itself. This initial Wayshrine can be found just outside Fargrave''s main entrance, not inside the city itself, and is at the site where the player will discover the Deadlands questline.
This is the fastest way to start the new DLC, and really the Wayshrine is the only way to get to the Deadlands, as there are no other entrances from other zones to this plane of Oblivion. However, there is a somewhat more immersive way to get started in the Deadlands, and that''s by going to the Collections tab.
With the release of every DLC for The Elder Scrolls Online, a new associated Quest Starter has been introduced. To begin the Deadlands DLC with a more narratively-driven introduction, go to the Collections tab of the player menus, then click on "Stories."
