Nerdful Things – Elder Scrolls Online: Scalebreaker Update 23
Welcome to my Elder Scrolls Online [ESO] update for August, featuring update 23!
The Scalebreaker DLC update sees a number of new features and tweaks as well as two new dungeons to explore and conquer: Lair of Maarselok and Moongrave Fane which introduce new item sets as well. As usual, DLC can be purchased using crowns (in-game currency) or are readily available for ESO+ subscribers.
Completion of both dungeons (on normal or veteran) will reward you with a collectable tablet allowing you to unlock a new wing for the Hall of the Lunar Champion home (a free home unlocked by completing the Elsweyr “Two Queens” storyline).
Inventory management has been tweaked as well – Undaunted Keys no longer take up space in your item bag and are now filed neatly under your currency. The Undaunted merchants have also been tweaked in that you trade the keys with the quest givers instead of locating their respective chests within the camp.
Crafting has been refined as well – items can be crafted, deconstructed and refined in multiples which speeds up the process tremendously.
For the guildmasters out there, you can now bid on multiple guild traders reducing the disappointment of missing out on a trader and causing issues with guild members selling items and, of course, impacting the guild coffers.
EDIT: There is a free play event running from 7pm BST 27/08/19 until 03/09/19 meaning ALL players can take part in the Elsweyr content and other chapters as well.

If you’re new to ESO or you’re just getting back into it, I definitely recommend ESO+. Not only do you get crowns to spend in the crown store with your subscription, you get one of the most invaluable bonuses ever. The craft bag. Struggling for storage space is a nightmare in the game and pack upgrades and horse storage takes time and gold. A lot of gold. The craft bag frees you from the shackles of the poor storage by allowing you to store infinite crafting items and allows you to fill your pockets and bank with items to aid you in battle or to loot the spoils of war and learn new traits, gain key crafting components or just sell them for gold. £53.99 for six months is a bargain.
And, whether you’re a Playstation or XBox user, why not get discounted wallet top ups to fund your ESO+ or just top up your crowns every now and again? Check out the amazing deals at ElectronicFirst. I use them all the time and I usually get the e-mail with my code(s) within ten minutes. Some great savings to be had – £43.99 for a £50 PSN top up? You’d be daft not to!
