ESO’s first expansion has now been officially released on all platforms. Players will set their course towards Morrowind and return to the iconic island of Vvardenfell. I’m sure many of us will be thrilled to re-visit the ancestral home of the dark elves since the single player game in 2002.

Tel Var Stones Explained
Zenimax has released more information on Tel Var Stones, the alternate currency of the Imperial City DLC.
We now know a lot more about the perils of finding Tel Var Stones!
Players won’t be able to find Stones in the PvE sections of the Imperial City, so there’s a constant risk involved.
There will also be a special Tel Var Stone Gain Multiplier, which increases based on how many stones you carry.
The more stones you have, the more you’ll also get.
ESO Imperial City DLC Details Announced
The First official DLC game pack for The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited, Imperial City, now has a release date. The DLC will be on PTS later on July, and the launch date for PC/Mac is August 31st, for Xbox One September 15th, and for PlayStation 4 on September 16th.
Imperial City DLC is included in active ESO Plus memberships. For others, the only way to purchase the DLC at this point is to buy it via the ESOTU Crown Store for 2,500 crowns.
The core of the DLC includes a new playable area at the heart of Cyrodiil, the Imperial City, which has now falled into the hands of Molag Bal’s minions. The Imperial City consists of six Districts, the vast Imperial Sewers network and the White-Gold Tower.
Upcoming Cyrodiil PvP Update in ESO
Brian Wheeler of ZOS has posted an update on what Zenimax is currently working on to tackle some of the issues found in Cyrodiil, not only server performance wise but also regarding PvP mechanics that “promote poor sportsmanship and undesirable reliances”.
The post includes a concrete list of changes that will be implemented to address some of the problems. The main thing that caught my eye is the removal of Former Emperor Skill Line altogether, and restricting PvP buffs only to Cyrodiil. This is done to prevent “alliance buff servers”
