You have surely noticed: The last months of 2021 are running in The Elder Scrolls Online is themed #TamrielTogether, with a big raffle, the Skyrim's Forgotten Treasures Community Event and other in-game events through which you can ultimately get the final Indrik evolution: the purple Indrik.
But #TamrielTogether also means to throw yourself together with other players on the umpteen challenges Tamriel has to offer for groups. The developers recently got you all in one new article on the official TESO website presented.
Since they are full of larger groups of challenging enemies and leaders, we suggest that you bring a friend or two with you when exploring a public dungeon. Anyone can get involved in these sprawling PvE areas, so you'll often run into other players making their way – why don't you guys get together?
Within a public dungeon, you can find gear appropriate to the area, but be on the lookout for other unique rewards as well, as many will also have their own achievements and collectibles when you complete them. There is a public dungeon in almost every area, such as Labyrinthion in the western edge of the sky. You can see them on your map.
Group dungeons are specially designed for four players, featuring challenging leadership battles and powerful monsters where collaboration and communication are key.
If you enter a group dungeon, it is an instance for your group alone, that is, you are completely on your own and the group. Each of these locations has their own unique armor sets, achievements, and collectibles as rewards, giving you plenty of reasons to keep coming back.
You can complete group dungeons on both normal and veteran difficulty levels – depending on how much you want to challenge your group. In the base game alone you can contest more than 20 group dungeons, but there are many more awaiting you in the ESO DLC game packs, for example Dorn Castle or the stone garden from Stonethorn. The easiest way to find a group dungeon is by using the group & activity search, which you can access via your menu.
Trials are similar to group dungeons, but you need 12 people for them, as they come up with even tougher groups of monsters and leader battles. Only well-coordinated and organized groups pass an exam, but those who take it will be rewarded with unique item sets, achievements and collectibles.
As with group dungeons, you can also try your hand at exams on a normal level and on a veteran level. There is a separate ranking list for each, with those who accept greater challenges also receive even greater rewards. The ESO base game has three trials to offer, and another four can be found in the chapters (i.e. Kynes Aegis in the western edge of the sky or the production halls on Vvardenfell) and the DLCs Clockwork City and Thieves Guild. You can also find them on the menu.
ESO also offers group arenas. In these four-player challenges, you and your group usually move from one arena to the next, facing increasingly difficult waves of monsters and leaders. ESO currently offers two arenas: The Dragon Star Arena (in the ESO base game) and the Black Rose Prison (which is part of the Murkmire DLC).
They are just as challenging as group dungeons (if not more challenging) and you can complete group arenas on normal or veteran difficulty. In each of them you get a unique set of rewards and there are rankings. You can find group arenas on your map.
Each area of ESO has challenges that you can complete on your own, but mostly they are better tackled with allies.
- Open World Leaders – Powerful individual enemies or groups of enemies with unique, challenging mechanics such as Skreg the Invincible or Hunger from Vvardenfell, Wuyuvus.
- World Events – Large-scale events in which multiple enemies appear faster and faster. Examples of this would be Dark Anchors in the base game by ESO or the Storms of Sorrows in the western edge of the sky and in Black Distance from the Greymoor chapter.
If you like to mess around with your fellow players, you can lead your squad into one of ESO's battlefields, where you can face other groups of players in, for example, death throes, relic hunt or Mad King and others.
As with other group activities, Battlegrounds have their own achievements, leaderboards, and rewards, including Alliance Points and unique style pages. To take part in a battlefield, you simply use the groups & activity search.
Alliance war and imperial city
If you're interested in the great war tactics, join hundreds of players as they vie for control of the heart of Tamriel in the Alliance War. As part of the Alliance War, members of the three alliances in the Cyrodiil region plunge into the war, take towns and castles, secure the scrolls of the ancients and work to claim the title of emperor for themselves.
You can help your fellow players in this extensive PvP area by calling up the Alliance War menu in the user interface. There you simply select a campaign and join the queue. And if you feel like a challenge, you can also enter the imperial city and fight in its streets. When in Cyrodiil you can go out on your own, but we recommend short-circuiting with your fellow warriors to form large groups, as these walls are no stick!
