[Elder Scrolls Online] ESO update 35 details are now available for PC, PS4, PS5, and Xbox One. The upcoming Lost Depths DLC pack added two new four-player dungeons to challenge you and your allies that build upon and expand the saga that began with the Ascending Tide DLC and continued with the recent High Isle Chapter. Apart from this, ESO patch 35 also includes a long list of combat changes and fixes.
Previously, a major Chapter: High Isle update 34 added Systres Archipelago, far to the southwest of continental Tamriel, and delve into the culture and secrets of the noble and chivalric Breton people. High Isle added several new item sets and Mythic Items, new Antiquities, a number of new collectibles, tons of new achievements, and more.
This dungeon DLC pack brings two new four-player dungeons to challenge you and your allies that build upon and expand the saga that began with the Ascending Tide DLC and continued with the recent High Isle Chapter.
Earthen Root Enclave Dungeon
A spiritual sanctuary for all druids of the Systres Archipelago, Earthen Root Enclave has been attacked by the fierce Firesong circle, and Druid Laurel of the Stonelore needs allies to repulse the invaders and protect the sacred shrine’s many relics. But why have the fractious Firesong attacked now? And what will be the consequences of this trespass for the people of High Isle?
Graven Deep Dungeon
High Isle’s sailors whisper anxious warnings about Graven Deep, a strange region of the Abecean Sea where any ship that enters vanishes without a trace. Team up with a former pirate, Dhulef, as he braves this mysterious and dangerous region and hunts for information on the legendary Druid King’s voyage to the Systres. What ancient secrets will you discover buried far beneath the waves?
Discover the Legacy of the Bretons
Both dungeons feature their own unique stories and rewards, including item sets, Achievements, and collectibles not found anywhere else in Tamriel. While both Earthen Root Enclave and Graven Deep feature standalone quests and tales, they also expand upon the ongoing Legacy of the Breton saga and lead directly into the events of the year’s final prologue and DLC release (more on that in the future!)
A new base-game patch includes balance changes, fixes, and new features, including changes to the combat system, the introduction of bonus “mini-events” for Battlegrounds (for example, a weekend that grants bonus Alliance Points), and broad improvements to XP gains in PvP in general.
Coming in Update 35, the game devs are reducing Light and Heavy Attacks’ impact in damage production by adjusting their damage to deal a flat amount, regardless of stats. The aim is to not harm the low-end experience, and target only the higher end. In doing so, we hope to reduce the difference of damage potential in a way that retains the satisfaction of learning to weave, where the impact is still felt, but to a much less degree than before.
With this adjustment, the game devs are also making a significant number of changes to item sets, passives, and buffs to ensure classes remain balanced in damage production, while also trying to do a better job allowing builds to amplify these actions (we’ve heard your cries, Heavy Attack build lovers, and we want better for you) without introducing unhealthy gameplay between PvE and PvP.
ESO Update 35 will increase the duration of many effects in game, primarily damage over time, buffs, and debuffs. By extending the duration, we hope to reduce the stress of many combat rotations, allowing for you to focus more on the action in front of you rather than the action of juggling buffs and debuffs on your ability bar and making the game far more accessible.
The Elder Scrolls Online: Lost Depths and ESO Update 35 is coming to PC/Mac, Steam, and Stadia on August 22, 2022, and Xbox and PlayStation consoles on September 6, 2022.
