Lore Seekers! Ever traverse through a dungeon feeling that you have to just accept the quest, so you didn’t hold up the party? Or did your party run ahead leaving you with uncertainty why you were there? What is this about spiders? What’s with the burning city? Was Selene good or evil? Whose' underwear is this? So many questions!
If you answered “yes” to any of those above, this event is just for you. Each week we will breaking up in groups of up to 4 to traverse through each dungeon, slowly! Take the quest, read the lorebooks, understand the story that is behind each that makes up the atmosphere that is Elder Scrolls.
We will be hitting all 36 dungeons over the course of many weeks. Some weeks we will do 2, like Spindleclutch 1 and 2 on the same day. Starting with the dungeons in the Daggerfall Covenant, we will then head to the Aldmeri Dominion, and next to the Ebonheart Pact. After each alliance is complete, we will then move forward to hit the DLC’s in the order of appearance.
Doing “Once Upon a Dungeon…” is much easier if you have a NEW CHARACTER to take through so they have the quest as well to follow along. But it is not necessary. If your characters have already completed the quest, the quest will be recited for you to follow. Not sure which character has done what? Then download the addon “Urich’s Skill Point Finder” https://www.esoui.com/downloads/info1863-UrichsSkillPointFinder.html This addon needs set to a shortcut and then you can, with a drop down character select, see exactly what character has done which dungeon.
With NEW toons, the dungeons will be run on “Normal Mode”. Your party of three also have the option to read about the mechanics of each boss to further your experience. To do this, grab another addon named “Xyonde’s All About Mechanics” here: https://www.esoui.com/downloads/info2362-XynodesAllAboutMechanics.html When you enter the dungeon, the addon will be located on the upper left section of your screen.
Formations for this event will start in discord. Using the VNQ BOT, we will randomly break parties into groups of four. Not all parties are guaranteed to have tanks or healers, therefore, make sure you have food and soul gems on your entry level characters.
So how does it work? When your party enters the dungeon, the first person who takes the quest, you will automatically be asked to accept it or not. DECLINE the quest, and then you should be able to accept it on your own. To prevent NPC’s from running forward, . Before clicking on the NEXT dialogue, say in chat “ready”. Once all are ready, then proceed to the next step and continue.
