Wrathstone DLC Game Pack
The Wrathstone DLC Game Pack introduces two challenging, brand-new dungeons that take your team through Tamriel’s hidden ruins to collect both halves of the mysterious Wrathstone tablet. This DLC also kicks off the year-long Season of the Dragon storyline that continues with the upcoming Elsweyr Chapter, arriving this June, and runs throughout 2019.
In Frostvault, you must work with the Redguard treasure hunter Tharayya to explore a lost Dwarven vault, embedded deep within Eastmarch’s frozen glaciers. Standing in your way is a menacing Goblin tribe, ageless Dwarven automatons, and deadly traps. You need to make use of long-deactivated machines to break into the vault and claim its secrets for yourself.
Depths of Malatar
What dangers lurk within the Depths of Malatar? Venture deep into this lost Ayleid ruin and discover the fate of an Imperial cohort that first discovered its entrance centuries ago. However, more than soldiers await you deep within the sunken city of Garlas Malatar, as shining Daedric guardians protect the ancient relics within!
Explore the sunken ruins of Malatar
Both dungeons are available in Normal and Veteran difficulties, with a Veteran Hard Mode option if you truly wish to challenge your team. Should you complete these dungeons, in addition to claiming both halves of the Wrathstone tablet, you can earn powerful armor sets, Monster Masks, and unique collectibles, including a new skin and pet.
The Wrathstone DLC game pack is free for all ESO Plus members or can be purchased for 1,500 crowns from the in-game Crown Store, where it’s listed under DLC.
Note that if your ESO Plus membership lapses, you will lose access to the DLC dungeons until you renew or purchase the DLC with crowns. You won’t lose any items or rewards you earned while you had access.
Wrathstone Collector’s Bundle
The Wrathstone Collector’s Bundle is also available for 4,000 crowns. This includes access to the DLC game pack, the Treasure Hunter’s Horse mount, the Carnelian Theodolite pet, and five Crown Experience Scrolls. You can find and purchase the Wrathstone Collector’s Bundle from the Featured section of the in-game Crown Store.

After you gain access to the Wrathstone dungeons, you can explore both Frostvault and Depths of Malatar by the following methods:

- By using the Dungeon Finder tool
- By walking up to the dungeon entrances in both the Gold Coast (Depths of Malatar) and Eastmarch (Frostvault)
Upon entering one of the two new dungeons, you receive an Ayleid Royal Crown hat, completely free.

New Battleground and PvP Rewards
The Update 21 base-game patch (free for all ESO players) brings a new Battleground to conquer and new rewards for PvP activities. For starters, the Battlegrounds map Eld Angvar pits you against your fellow players in a mysterious Ayleid world between worlds. This arena puts you into the fight quickly by using a series of portals, and it has two unique variants depending on the game mode.
Battle in the void
In addition to the Battlegrounds map, Update 21 also provides additional PvP rewards, including a unique pet for those who fight for control of Cyrodiil and colorful, team-based weapon Outfit styles for Battlegrounds brawlers.

Zone Guide and Guild Trader UI Update
Update 21 also introduces some big changes and quality-of-life improvements for Tamriel’s explorers and traders. The Zone Guide tool helps you track your progress in any of Tamriel’s zones, including Zone Story Quests completed, Wayshrines unlocked, Points of Interest visited, and much more. It can even help you find almost everything in a zone via quest markers. This tool is perfect if you need help completing a zone or simply want to find something interesting to do.
If you have coin, you can find wares
If you enjoy trading goods with your fellow players in ESO, Update 21’s Guild Trader UI improvement dramatically overhauls how you find and purchase items. The biggest addition is the ability to search a Guild Trader for specific items rather than having to navigate through multiple menus, and it allows you to effortlessly find the items or materials you wish to acquire. In addition to this, we’ve also revamped the Guild Trader categories, making for a much smoother trading experience.
