The Elder Scrolls Online: Gold Road is an eagerly anticipated chapter in the The Elder Scrolls Online (ESO) series.
It is a massively multiplayer online role-playing game developed by ZeniMax Online Studios and published by Bethesda Softworks. The game was first released in 2014.
This latest adventure in the series is filled with brand-new content, locations, features, editions, and more.
Here is everything we know about it so far.
Overview of Gold Road chapter
The Elder Scrolls Online: Gold Road is set to bring a wealth of new content to the ESO universe.
This expansion won’t introduce a new class but will feature a new system called “Scribing,” a precursor to Spellcrafting.
This system aims to provide players with more choices in customizing their skills.
Additionally, the expansion will introduce a new zone called West Weald, a new 12-player Trial called Lucent Citadel.
West Weald Zone
The main hub of the Gold Road Chapter is West Weald, situated between Cyrodiil, Gold Coast, Reaper’s March, and Craglorn.
The city of Skingrad serves as the central city in this new zone.
Fans of The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion will recognize this area, which was a part of the game released in 2006.
The region is known for its lush, autumnal landscapes, dense forests, and stunning vistas.
New features and systems
Scribing System: Scribing allows players to collect and customize skills to improve their builds in ESO.
