As part of 2022’s Legacy of the Bretons year-long adventure within the high fantasy MMORPG, The Elder Scrolls Online: Lost Depths DLC has released overnight for PC/Mac players. This DLC will also launch on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Xbox Game Pass, PlayStation 5, and PlayStation 4 on September 6. There are two new four-player dungeons to run through which expands the saga that began with the Ascending Tide DLC and continued with the recent High Isle Chapter. Both dungeons feature their own unique stories and rewards, including item sets, Achievements, and collectibles not found anywhere else in Tamriel.
Earthen Root Enclave
Once a sanctuary for all the druids of the Systres, Earthen Root Enclave has come under attack from the vicious Firesong Circle. Learn more about the Archipelago’s unique druid factions as you contend with Firesong warriors, powerful constructs, and even corrupted spirits that seek to plunder the sacred haven. You and your party must help Druid Laurel defend the enclave from the marauders, protect the site’s most revered relics, and confront a new danger that threatens to bring ash and ruin to Tamriel.
Explore a mysterious uncharted island and help Dhulef of the Mages Guild delve into a vast underwater Dwarven facility. But be warned. The isle you and your party have landed upon is home to all manner of deadly beasts. Additionally, within the depths of the enormous undersea complex, the lost souls of sailors protect an ancient secret. Together, you and your allies can uncover the mysteries of Graven Deep, put a stop to the storms that plague the sailors of the Abecean Sea, and discover new lore surrounding the legendary Druid King and his journey to the Systres Archipelago.
By completing both dungeons in Normal, Veteran, and Hard Mode difficulties, you can uncover unique challenges and rewards (including item sets and collectibles) specific to this DLC. As part of the Legacy of the Bretons adventure, what you discover in these two new PvE experiences will have ramifications for both the people of the Systres Archipelago and the larger year-long saga.
You can access The Elder Scrolls Online: Lost Depths DLC game pack via ESO Plus membership or purchase it for 1,500 crowns from the in-game Crown Store (listed under DLC). Note that if your ESO Plus membership lapses, you will lose access to the DLC until you renew your membership or purchase it with crowns, but you won’t lose any items, Achievements, or other rewards you earned while you had access. The Lost Depths Collector’s Bundle which is what I grabbed is also available for 4,000 crowns and includes access to the DLC game pack, the Turquoise War Pangrit mount, the Pangrit Nymphling pet, and five Crown Experience Scrolls. You can purchase the Collector’s Bundle from the Featured section of the in-game Crown Store.
Also released at the same time as the Lost Depths DLC is the Update 35 base-game patch. This free update is available for all ESO players and includes a host of balance and bug fixes, combat changes, the introduction of special Battlegrounds weekends, and boosts to XP gains when engaging in PvP activities in general.
