Necrom continues the story that began with the Scribes of Fate DLC; however, players do not need to have completed the previous DLC in order to experience everything this Chapter has to offer.

Telvanni Peninsula and Apocrypha

Home to the devious mages of House Telvanni and the city of Necrom, the Telvanni Peninsula’s towering mushroom forests might feel familiar to those who have ventured to other parts of Morrowind. This new zone contains a host of unique encounters for players to discover, including new side quests, world bosses, delves, public dungeons, and more.

Necrom also allows players to explore Hermaeus Mora’s own realm of Apocrypha. While this mysterious part of Oblivion contains near-limitless knowledge, be warned, many mortals have lost their souls while navigating its endless libraries. Additionally, players will be able to explore an all-new part of Aprocypha – Chroma Incognito. This new area is unlike anything ever seen before, but like the rest of Apocrypha, contains myriad hazards and secrets for players to discover.

Learn more about Necrom’s two explorable zones in this preview.

The Arcanist 

Necrom brings one of the most requested updates, a new playable class — the Arcanist. As the first new class added to ESO since the Elsweyr Chapter’s Necromancer in 2019, the Arcanist wields the forbidden powers of Apocrypha to deal damage, absorb incoming blows, and heal yourself or your allies.

New Challenges, Companions, and More 

The Necrom Chapter also includes a new group challenge, Sanity’s Edge – a 12-player trial along with a new world event, Bastion Nymic. Necrom also brings players two new companions, Sharp-as-Night and Azandar Al-Cybiades. Both Companions can be recruited, levelled up, and equipped in this new Chapter, and each brings their own stories, combat skills, and questlines for you to unlock.
