Markarth DLC Base Game Patch Features & Content

  • New Zone – The Reach

    The epic conclusion of the Dark Heart of Skyrim arrives with the Markarth DLC. The army of Vampires and Werewolves known as the Gray Host has turned its attention to the Reach, searching for an ancient relic of power to aid in their eternal conquest. Will you aid the Reachfolk in their hour of need?

    From the walled city of Markarth to the Druadach Mountains, from the depths of Blackreach to the River Karth, the Reach beckons and waits to be explored! But darkness lurks below the surface, ready to spread like a plague from the shadows. The Reach needs heroes. Are you prepared to face the Dark Heart of Skyrim one last time?

    This exciting zone includes a full story with many new quests, two new Delves, and two powerful World Bosses.
    In addition to the region known as the Reach, go beneath the surface to explore a new section of Blackreach!
    Complete the zone stories in both the Greymoor Chapter and the Markarth DLC to unlock a bonus questline—the final confrontation with the Gray Host and the Vampire Lord that leads it!

  • New Solo Arena – Vateshran Hollows

    In the southern Reach there is an ancient cave of the Spiritblood Clan known as Vateshran Hollows. Reachmen from all across the land make their way here and perform the Vateshran Rites to prove themselves worthy of being called Reachmen. Do you have what it takes to venture into the Hollows and face down the nightmares within? Do you have the strength of a Reachman?

  • New Furnishings
    This update includes more than 40 new plans for Dwarven furnishings in the Markarth style. These can be found across the Reach, alongside the Solitude furnishing plans from Western Skyrim. To make room for these new Dwarven plans while keeping the Solitude plans available at their usual rate, older furnishing plans from other styles are less common than usual in the Reach.

    You’ll also find new Markarth-specific achievement furnishings for sale by Tirudilmo, as well as a small selection of Home Goods furnishings from Averio Brassac, both of which can be found in the city of Markarth.

    In addition to the usual Antique Map of the Reach, there are two new antiquity furnishings to seek out in the Reach:

    • Red Eagle Cave Painting -- Though this cave painting stands tall, the legend of Red Eagle stands taller still among those living in the Reach … and beyond. The visceral impact of this piece may just haunt your dreams.

    • Vampiric Stained Glass -- The dramatic reds and blacks of this stained glass form striking iconography, making it a must-have for any vampire seeking to decorate their sanctuary.

  • Transmute Crystal Update

    To better enable you to use the new Item Set Collection system, we've increased the cap of Transmute Crystals! Now you can hold up to 500 Transmute Crystals (or 1,000 if you're an ESO+ member).

    We've increased the number of Transmute Crystals you can earn from most PvE sources, including Undaunted Pledges, LFG rewards, Trial Weekly Quests, and Arena and Trial Leaderboards. We've also increased the number of Transmute Crystals you can earn from the Battleground Leaderboards. As part of this, we've removed the small chance of obtaining a single Transmute Crystal from simply slaying the Final Boss in a Dungeon.

    We'll be monitoring how Transmute Crystals are obtained and used in the coming months, as well as your feedback, and may make additional adjustments to Transmute Crystal sourcing in the future.

  • Battlegrounds Updates

    In this update, we are testing the re-addition of group queuing to Battlegrounds, where players of group sizes up to 4 can join the queue together and be placed on the same team. Solo players can join this queue, or they can join the solo queue to be matched exclusively with other solo players. With this change, we have also removed specific match queues to help promote overall queue health. We’ve also made additional improvements to Battleground matchmaking to help promote better long-term match making.

  • New Craftable Consumable: Alliance War Skill Boosters 

    We've introduced a new set of consumables: the Colovian War Torte, the Molten War Torte, and the White-Gold War Torte. These items increase the rate at which you advance your Alliance War Skill Lines by 50%, 100%, or 150%, respectively.

      Ok so I finished the Dark Heart and got “Champion of Markarth.” I am now supposed to talk to Count Ravenwatch to get the “of House Ravenwatch” title, but I don’t see him. ANYWHERE. Do I have to finish Western Skyrim to get the final Reach/Markarth achievement?
