Sub to the monthly thing. If you want to carft you kinda need it anywayWas scoping this one out, seems like it's been polished up a bit. Quick question though - does the Morrowind edition of this game include the DLCs from the Gold edition? I'm getting a bit mixed up going through the different iterations you could buy for this title.
No, you can either buy the Gold Edition which includes the base game and all of the pre-Morrowind DLC expansions (there's 4 or 5). Or you can buy the Morrowind Edition which is just the base game + Morrowind. To get everything for a one-time fee, you'd have to buy both. DLCs can be individually purcahsed w/ crowns (premium currency).Was scoping this one out, seems like it's been polished up a bit.

hm, if I buy the gold edition I would still have to buy morrowind. on steam the gold edition is $30 plus morrowind is $20 so I'd end up spending $50. how important are the 4 DLCs?The morrowind standalone edition comes with the base game so you shouldn't need to buy both (I assume you're talking about the standalone, but just to be safe).
That won't include the base game's DLCs, the only way to get those is to buy a Gold Edition key separately, subscribe to the $15/mo ESO+ service, or buy them individually with crowns.

thanks for the info. I really dont want to pay a subscription, thats what attracted me to this game was that its optional.The DLCs the gold edition comes with are quite good, but as noted, a Plus subscription gets you all the DLCs while you have it, and it very worth having. Only thing that would really make getting the gold edition, and then getting Morrowind on top of that worth it is if you just want to "own" those DLCs. Only other thing you get is a horse, which is nice but you can buy one in game soon enough, or get one though plenty of other packs on the store.
Also you get 1500 crowns per month if you have an ESO Plus subscription so if you don't spend them on all the shiny cosmetics you can save them up and get the DLC to keep that way. However ESO Plus is so useful I really can't see playing without it.
If you do want to get the DLC and such one off in terms of being worth it I'd rank it roughly as such:
--Morrowind. Not DLC, you have to buy it even with a Plus subscription, but very worth it. Big new zone with lots to do, new PvP modes (battelgrounds), etc, etc.
--Clockwork City. Newest DLC and really well done, looks cool and is quite different from a lot of the rest of the game.
--Orsinium. Good story, some dungeons, a nice region, all and all quite a bit of fun.
--Dark Brotherhood. Gets you a new skill tree that lets you get all stabby on NPCs. It is a lot of fun to sneak up and stab someone . Plus the quest is pretty good and the zone is nice.
--Thieves Guild. Makes thieving much more worthwhile with a new skill tree to help out. Also has a decent quest and a nice city in its new zone.
--Imperial City. Adds a couple dungeons and some new PvP area, though it isn't that heavily played these days. Still cool
--Shadows of the Hist. Adds two new dungeons, both of which are kind of a pain so people don't like to run them a whole lot.
--Horns of the Reach. Adds two new dungeons, both of which are often regarded as the biggest PITA dungeons in the game.
You don't need it. Some of the perks are nice but if you play casually like I did may not be worth it. I'd play until you decide if you like the game and plan on being with it for awhile.thanks for the info.

I picked up the Morrowind edition thanks to TaintedSquirrel's feedback earlier - I am hoping eventually, all the DLC from the Gold Edition gets bundled and offered at a lower price in the future. I guess I shouldn't be surprised, but when I started the game, it was outright in Morrowind, so I have absolutely no idea how to get to the mainland. I discovered the hard way that you can't "swim" the distance.
You can go to the docks outside of Vivec city and take a boat to other places. Also you can go to a wayshrine, click on it, it'll call up your map, and teleport to any other wayshrine you know, and you should probably have a couple from the mainland prepopulated.
So I have a question about the PS4 version, but since there is no console thread I'm going to ask it here.
I purchased both the physical CE of Morrowind and Summerset. Does anyone know if I'll be able to access both DLC if I need to have one disc or the other in the console to play the game? Did I screw myself by wanting to get the CE swag for both content packs, having to double dip on the digital upgrade version of Summerset?
I entered the codes, but it didn't give me the option to download anything. It just said "Promotion code entered." Nothing was added to my library.
Yeah, dumb me figured that out after I posted that... I needed to stick one of the discs in to initiate the download and my entitlements showed up with the game. Thanks.Is ESO installed? Regardless of having the dlcs or not, the full game will download altogether.
The codes just unlock access to get in to those dlc areas and content once in game.
