The Naryu’s Guide series has been running since before the official release of The Elder Scrolls Online: Morrowind. It takes players on a journey through Morrowind through the eyes of the popular Morag Tong assassin, Naryu Virian. Today, another installment to the video series was released.
The video details the new Battlegrounds PvP mode in the MMORPG. Focusing in on the Ald Carac Battleground specifically, Naryu expresses her disbelief at the idea of fighting without monetary compensation. In a post made back in March on the official Elder Scrolls Online website, Battlegrounds is described as “a new type of conflict” where 3 teams of 4 players fight against each other in either Team Deathmatch, Capture the Flag, or Domination mode.
Deathmatch is a rather self-explanatory mode. Players are meant to kill and kill often, with each kill earning your team points. Capture the Flag should be rather familiar to anyone who has ever played a first-person shooter online. It is described as a “game type that will be most enjoyed by those who thrive as part of a team.” Players have to get to the enemy base and then return the enemy flag to their own base. Domination is a point-capture mode. Teams are intended to find and hold points on the map for as long as possible.
As seen in the video, Ald Carac is part of a Dwarven ruin. There is Dwarven machinery and some dead Dwarven spheres strewn about on the Battlegrounds. According to another post from the Elder Scrolls Online website, in Ald Carac, “visibility is at a premium.” This can change the way players battle and can make one second guess which points on the map they wish to control.
The Battlegrounds are available now to anyone who owns the Elder Scrolls Online: Morrowind expansion. You can buy your copy on the website.
