Elder Scrolls Online: Horns of Reach DLC Add-On Released Alongside New Update

Posted on August 14, 2017 by Rae Michelle Richards

Two brand new dungeons for The Elder Scrolls Online – Bloodroot Forge and Falkreath Hold are now available through the Crown Shop on PC & Mac and will be coming to both PlayStation 4 & Xbox One on August 29th. These two optional challenging dungeons have been released alongside a brand new battleground for owners of The Elder Scrolls Online: Morrowind as well as a free update that provides a number of bug fixes for all players. 

Here is the description of Bloodroot Forge from the official announcement: 

“Burning with hatred and thirsty for vengeance, the Reachmen have discovered the location of a dreadful secret: the Bloodroot Forge. This altar to all things primal and untamed grants a terrible power to those who would wield it. Venture into the Bloodroot Forge to stop the Reachmen and their Minotaur allies – before it’s too late.” 

If you’re wondering, yes Falkreath also has a summary: 

“Falkreath’s defenses are breached. The Minotaur and their Reachmen allies are relentless, pouring through the hold’s broken walls. Soon, Falkreath Hold will fall. Gather your most trusted companions and set forth. You are the last line of defense.” 

Players can get a pair of brand new instances for 1500 Crowns (aprox $20 CDN) or access the two trials as part of an Elder Scrolls Online subscription. 

Adventurers in the world of Tamriel looking for a new mount can purchase the Horns of Reach Dungeon unlock combined with the Okami-esque Karthwolf Charger mount and Karthwolf Shepherd pet for 3,500 crowns. To be honest I am really digging the Karthwolf Charger Mount and might pick it up when my next month’s Crown allotment comes in. 

New options for Giuildmasters, adjustments to combat, the addition of colorblind ability procs a Writ Merchant Inventory and a Champion Points boost from 330 to 360 round out the improvements available to all players in Update 15. 

Here is a summary from the official site: 

  • Various fixes and updates to combat, gameplay, Alliance War, crafting, dungeons, balance, questing, and more 
  • Improvement to Guild functionality including Guild Invite History and a new “View Guild Bank Gold” rank permission 
  • Improvements to Crafting functionality including research cancelling and more 
  • Customizable Combat Cues from the Settings menu 
  • Improvements to itemization, including Guild Store furniture previews 
  • Updates to the master Writ Merchant’s inventory 
  • New Furnishings and a new home Hakkvild’s High Hall. 
  • Champion Point increase from 630 – 660 
  • Three new Crafting Motifs: Hlaalu, Redoran, and Telvanni (ESO: Morrowind owners only) 
  • And more! 

Zenimax Online was kind enough to provide me access to The Horns of Reach for editorial coverage. Look forward to video capture from both Bloodroot Forge and Falkreath, as well as written impressions in the coming days. 



First look at Lycanroc Dusk form

Posted on August 14, 2017 by Jason Nason

We recently got our first look at the newly discovered Dusk Form Lycanroc. Now more details have been revealed, including how to add this Pokémon to your Pokémon Ultra Sun or Pokémon Ultra Moon game.

Dusk Form Lycanroc shares some of the aspects of Midday Form, such as a four-legged stance and obedience toward its trusted Trainer. But it’s also like Midnight Form—at the moment it attacks, its eyes turn red! Around its neck are four rocks like those of Midday Form, while the mane on its head matches that of Midnight Form.

Little things don’t shake the tranquil demeanor of Dusk Form Lycanroc, but it has a well of intense fighting spirit hidden within, and as a result, it relishes combat at close quarters. It also tries to use Counter when battles get intense.

Monster Hunter Stories | IMPRESSIONS

Posted on August 14, 2017 by Jason Nason

When I write these ‘Impressions’ posts about upcoming games they’re almost always based on a pre-release demo edition of a game. They’re meant to be somewhat of a preview of the game as usually demos give you a taste of the gameplay and mechanics so you’ll know what to expect going into a game. More than just watching some gameplay online it’s a way to get a hands on with the game.

Rarely am I as impressed with a game based on a demo as I am with Monster Hunter Stories. This game is beatutiful.
