I learned via a Massively OP article that the Murkmire DLC is coming to Elder Scrolls Online. According to this same info there was already (at time of reading) a pre-quest available in-game as a prologue to the expansion.
I duly trotted off to Davon’s Watch, since most expansion content starts in my faction’s starter zone. It so happens these quests are in the Outlaws’ Refuge, a part of the city I’ve rarely entered.
Here the short session became confused as there were a lot of quests down there, I’ve not touched the Thieves Guild or Dark Brotherhood DLC content before so the prologue quest(s) became blurred with various nefarious tasks this basement’s shady ne’er-do-wells wanted me to do.
I had the necessary skill point invested to intimidate one NPC upstairs, and eventually after getting sidetracked on aforementioned shady business for some time, I found the location online of where Mme Urzashi’s assistant is to be found. I fear I either missed a crucial clue in the dialogue, or simply I’d left Stonefalls before doing this delve (spoilerific link) so the name would have meant nothing to me anyway.
I rather like delves as I’ve no doubt posted before – these mini public dungeons are simply fun to romp through. They give plenty of provisioning (cooking) materials and usually you get a bunch of random items that, if nothing else, can be fed to research or deconstruction for other crafting skills.
Time ran out for me, so I didn’t quite get to the daily quest stage mentioned in the MOP article. Unlocking the expansion through dailies sounds like a cool alternative to keep players engaged if they’re not willing or able to purchase it. Personally I know that’s not going to happen since I’d have to log in 24 days in November, that’ll be impossible for me as I have a holiday planned in the middle of the month – so it looks like I’ll be buying it the normal way.
