Hello again, discussers! I swear that the lack of an update was actually not my fault this time...
*Last weekend's event is the Skyrim Gauntlet where all cards in your deck must have been from the Core or Heroes of Skyrim expansion. For every completed run, players will receive a premium copy of alternate art Crusader's Assault. This event ended at 12pm ET on Monday, February 10.
*This weekend's currently event was the Noble Gauntlet. Here, only Common and Rare cards were allowed in your deck. This event ended at 12pm ET on Monday, February 17.
*Valentines Day has just passed, and if you logged in that day, you should have received two free special offers. The Heart's Day Bundle included three copies of Grisly Gourmet alternate art and a Core pack and the second free offer was another Core card pack and 300 soul gems. These were available only for a limited time of 36 hours.
*Update 1.6 brings loadouts to Blades. Players can save up to five sets of items and skills which can be switched in both single-player and PvP. This is unlocked at Town Level 4. See how this works, as well as other things coming to Update 1.6, in this video or this article. Don't forget to pick up an Amulet of Mara by logging in before the 16th, and a free "Heart" emote in the store available until the 17th.
*Learn all about what you will encounter in the upcoming DLC, Harrowstorm in this article. Strange storms rage over the Sea of Ghosts as you search for a lost expedition. This article explores the beasts and witches you will have to face as well as the gear and collectibles you will be rewarded.
*This new edition of Meet the Character teaches us about a powerful witch of Icereach named Mother Ciannait. "I caught only a fleeting glimpse of her, lit by bursting flames and blasts of lightning. She wore a twisted wicker mask and the elements roared and danced around her like shrieking lunatics. I see her still when I close my eyes."
*The Murkmire celebration begins on Thursday, February 20 at 10AM EST up until Tuesday, March 3 at 10AM EST. There are Event Tickets, bonus rewards, Murkmire Strongboxes and more up for grabs throughout this event. To participate, you must own either the Murkmire DLC or have ESO Plus. Defeat monsters, bosses and loot everything you can! You can see the list of rewards and how to get them in this article.
*There was an ESO Live on Friday which was a Housing Tour and Dev Interview. Two new homes, Forgemaster Falls and Thieves' Oasis, were shown off and Writer Taylor Cyr was interviewed about working at Zenimax. Check out the stream on any of Bethesda's streaming service accounts. Also, the Harrowstorm Dungeon Tour stream which was postponed was rescheduled for February 5. You can watch that here if you missed it.
*Update 25 is arriving February 24 for PC/Mac and March 10 for PS4 and Xbox One, and with it comes the Patching Overhaul. This "completely overhauls how the ESO game client is downloaded, patched, and stored on local hard drives." This will improve the game's loading time and greatly reduces the amount of space the client takes up on your hard drive. All ESO players will have to re-download the game client once Update 25 goes live. The ESO Launcher on PC/Mac and console will start the download automatically and all you need to do is wait for it to finish. There will be a free pet added to the Crown Store as a sort of "thank you" for re-downloading the game. The Crimson Torchbug Pet will be available for two weeks after Update 25's release. Here is the article for more information.
*Bethesda Game Days is back this year. At 2PM on February 29, the ESO Game show will begin. Watch two teams lead by Rich Lambert and Mike Finnigan battle it out in trivia and physical challenges. Linked viewers can get an Ouroboros Crown Crate and a Clouded Senche-Leopard Cub pet through Twitch Drops. Check out this article for everything about Bethesda Game Days.
*It was announced that the old Bethsoft forums will be offline permanently from the 17th February; however it appears that this has been moved to March 9th, so we have a bit more time to archive them!
*Some notable additions to the wiki last week come from:
Some notable contributors from the recent week include:

*February 6, 2020: Recent Discussions and image fixes – missing 'edited by admin/mod' notices on Discussion posts were fixed, and tweaks to how links that end with a parenthesis are parsed in the Fandom App were made for fewer broken links.
That does it for this double update. Happy discussing!
