The Elder Scrolls Legends: Return to Clockwork City

"Millennia ago, the tinkerer god Sotha Sil built himself a hidden sanctuary, from which to shape his vision of the future. He called it the Clockwork City, and it was there that he died, when a fellow god betrayed and murdered him. What secrets died with him? What was he building in those gleaming halls? In the centuries since, no mortal has entered the city. Until now."

The Elder Scrolls Online: Clockwork City

The Elder Scrolls Online: Clockwork City is the eighth DLC for Online. It takes place within its namesake of the Clockwork City, a zone roughly the same size as the Dark Brotherhood and Thieves Guild DLCs and Chapters. While the PC version for the game was already released last month, the console versions will be released on November 7th, alongside with Update 16. For more information, see the blog here.[3]

Elder Scrolls Online: Update 16

Also on November 7th, we will have a new update for Online. Update 16 for Online holds a lot of changes for the game. The update is proposed to include a new Transmutation system that will allow players to change the traits on their gear, including weapons and armors. This will include a new Transmutation station required to change these traits, along with the requirement of already knowing the trait you want to replace it with for that weapon. Additionally, Transmutation requires a special new resource called Transmutation Crystals that you'll need to collect and save. You'll be able to earn Transmutation Crystals by completing veteran level content, such as Veteran Mode Dungeons or Trials. For more information, see the official Transmutation Q&A page on ESO's website.[4]

The update will also include numerous fixes, balance changes, performance improvements, Xbox One X support, and additions such as a Trait Tracker system that will allow you to see whether or not you've researched the unique trait on an item.[3]

Finally, the update will create a new PvP game for Online: Morrowind, known as Crazy King. Crazy King will require teams to capture random points around the map. More details will eventually be given as the update is released. For more information on the update, see the official post for Clockwork City and Update 16.[3]
