BIG CHANGES / UPDATES / NEW FEATURES
Cyrodiil Campaign Changes

  • We will be closing the Thornblade campaign on the PC/Mac North American and European megaservers with this patch, and introducing our first Imperial City gated access campaign: Axe of Belharza.
  • If you have earned at least Tier 1 rewards in Thornblade at the time it is closed, you will receive them shortly after logging in.
  • Anyone previously assigned to Thornblade will receive a free home campaign reassignment.
  • The Axe of Belharza campaign has the same scoring methods as Thornblade:
    • Resources, outposts, and Elder Scrolls will generate zero points. Ownership of keeps will generate one point per scoring cycle
    • The campaign has a 7-day duration.
    • Both Veteran and non-Veteran player characters may join this new campaign.
  • Access to the Imperial City is gated in the Axe of Belharza campaign by owning your native six keeps.
