Exciting news for ESO fans. Later this month we will begin sending beta invites to folks that signed up for beta. To learn more about how the process will work, be sure to check out the FAQ available at ElderScrollsOnline.com.
The latest web update for ESO includes an introduction to High King Emeric, leader of the Daggerfall Covenant. Read on for the story of his upbringing, the breaking of the Siege of Wayrest, and his ascension to the throne, told in his own words. Below is a short excerpt:
King Ranser, alas, was wroth that I had not accepted the hand of his daughter, and he withdrew his ambassador from the court of Wayrest. Although Ranser was invited to my wedding to Maraya in the spring of 566, like the other kings of the Covenant, he stayed, seething, in Shornhelm.
What of the Aldmeri Dominion and Ebonheart Pact? In case you missed it, read tales of their respective leaders, Ayrenn and Jorunn the Skald-King.

Grab the podcast episode via any of the following methods:
In The Elder Scrolls Online, the Aldmeri Dominion, Daggerfall Covenant, and Ebonheart Pact are embroiled in a full-scale war, but that was not always the case. What led each alliance to feel that war was the only option? What are their reasons and motives for fighting? Who are the key people and groups involved? In our latest developer video, “Alliances at War”, Loremaster Lawrence Schick answers these questions and more.
