If you are a fan of The Elder Scrolls Online, you should hop on the game’s public test server, pronto! Zenimax Online Studios has put up a new update for testing that includes content from the new Necrom chapter, as well as the new Arcanist class!

Explore New Zones in the Necrom Chapter

The latest chapter for ESO lets you explore two new zones, namely the Telvanni Peninsula and Apocrypha.

You can begin your adventures in Necrom in two ways. First, you can create a fresh character and finish the tutorial. And second, you can use an existing character and ride a boat or cart outside Elden Root, Mournhold, or Wayrest to travel to the Necrom Docks.

No matter what you choose, you should seek out Leramil the Wise to get things started. She will tell you to find the Daedric Prince of Forbidden Knowledge, Hermaus Mora. After that, things won't get any easier, so be ready for anything.

Besides the main story, here are the activities in the Necrom Chapter:

  • Six delves, two in the Telvanni Peninsula and four in Apocrypha, each with its own Skyshard, boss, and associated content.
  • Six challenging world bosses, from Coryls the Chain-Maker and House Dres’ terrifying slavers encroaching on House Telvanni’s lands, to the mind-bending Prime Cataloguer, a Seeker that toils to the point of madness in the Libram Cathedral in Apocrypha.
  • Two public dungeons: the once-beautiful island of Gorne, a sanitarium for the maddened mages of House Telvanni now overrun by Daedra interested only in sowing chaos, and the enigmatic Underweave, a vast and unknowable facility where Hermaeus Mora’s hostile minions process the fates of realities that never came to pass.

A New Spellcaster Joins the Fray

Also in the Necrom Chapter, ESO is graced by another spellcaster: the Arcanist! This class features a new mechanic where using some abilities can build or spend Crux.

Think of Crux as a charge that can stack up to three times. Each Crux can either passively increase the Arcanist’s combat prowess or add effects to abilities that spend it.

Take Fatecarver, for example. When used, the Arcanist channels a beam for up to four seconds, dealing magic damage every 0.3 seconds. Casting Fatecarver will consume all Crux and increase damage done by 33% per Crux spent.

Anyway, Zenimax provides you with a free character slot so that you can test the new Arcanist class out!

The Elder Scrolls Online Necrom Chapter is now available on PC.
