Gold Coast, Hew’s Bane, Wrothgar Skyshards Added to Map

As the expansion’s release date draws near, we’re hard at work updating the site. One of the first things we’ve decided to update is the Skyshard locations map. It has been missing several areas for some time, and it was high time we rectified that. The map is now finally complete, with all the areas from the base game. We’ve added Hew’s Bane, Wrothgar & Gold Coast Skyshards to it, and we’re ready for the expansion to go live.

Warden Class – Everything We Know

Warden is the new class in ESO: Morrowind. What we’ve seen of it suggests it’s a druid of some kind, a defender of nature. The wardens rely on wildlife to aid them in battle, and they have command of Tamriel’s flora. They can also become experts at using ice magic, which can provide both offensive and defensive boons. Read on to see everything we know about ESO Morrowind Warden, their skill lines and combat abilities.

ESO Vvardenfell Map Datamined

Hold onto your hats, it seems Vvardenfell is coming to ESO! A recent datamining effort uncovered a map of the island deep inside the game’s files, along with some fancy new tilesets. There’s no official word on it yet, but it could be that we’re getting a new (old) area. Morrowind fans around the world, rejoice!

eso Vvardenfell map In a recent post on ESO’s sub, reddit user FloorBelow shared a picture of the map. You can head on here if you’d like to see the original, uncompressed version. If you take a closer look at it, you’ll see much of the stuff is like it was in TES3.

Perhaps the biggest difference is that the volcano is active and seems inaccessible. Apart from that, several locations are missing – ones that were tied to the Crimson Plague or the Imperial influence in the province. Imperial towns like Caldera or Ebonheart aren’t present, nor is the Foreign Quarter in the capital. There are a couple of new places as well, which is all kinds of exciting.

The diligent dataminer discovered new textures, too, which bear the names of Great Houses and cities. Among others, there were tilesets called Telvanni, Hlaalu, Redoran, Vivec and Velothi. Dunmer strongholds and Dwemer ruins will be having their own characteristic architecture as well. There’s no information about the kind of creatures we could face there, but I guess that would be expecting too much at this point. We’re just hopeful they’ll conveniently forget to put in cliffracers.

Of course, we should wait for official confirmation before getting giddy with anticipation. Game development is a tricky thing, and things can go wrong at any step. There’s no use getting our hopes up before the DLC is announced, which will hopefully happen soon, especially now that the cat is out of the bag.

Final Fantasy 15: Sturdy Helixhorn, Rusted Bit, Glass Gemstone, Scraps of Mystery and more

Final Fantasy XV was released a short while ago, and it’s already the hottest new RPG this year. It has an epic main story, likable and relatable characters, and a massive world with tons of side missions. The side quests alone should keep players occupied for hours upon hours. Your AI-controlled friends, the combat mechanics and the vastness of this game’s open world give it an almost MMORPG feel.

The crew at our sister website GosuNoob spent literal days playing the game and turning every rock. As a result, they’ve compiled more than a hundred guides ranging between weapon upgrades and upgrade materials to lists and walkthroughs of the dungeons. They’ve also got secret locations, collectibles maps, explanations of end game content, and more. It’s rare that a single player game gets this much attention, but Final Fantasy XV truly deserves time and dedication.

Engine Blade Upgrade – Rusted Bit, Glass Gemstone, Sturdy Helix horn

One of the quirks of Final Fantasy as a franchise is resetting everything for every new main installment, but having recurring characters. One of those is Cid the mechanic. In this game, Cid owns a garage at Hammerhead station. He’s willing to upgrade your weapons to help you on your journey, provided you get him the required items. Each weapon upgrade is a separate side quest, and one of those is called A Better Engine Blade. There’s three upgrades for the Engine Blade. Each one brings it up to the next level and requires a different component.
The first thing you’ll need is a Rusted Bit. We’ve found quite a few of them, and we’ve got map locations and screenshots for them. The second component is the Glass Gemstone. This one is trickier to find, but it’ll be much easier with our guide. The third and final item you’ll need is a Sturdy Helixhorn. The only way to get it is by killing a certain monster in the game, and the guide tells you exactly how to do it and where to find them.

The Scraps of Mystery side quest

There’s a lot to do in this game beside the main story. There’s a bunch of side quests that will take you around the open world and give you that sweet XP. You can collect hunter dog tags, hunt wild animals, help strangers fix their cars, and much more. Probably the most complicated and well-hidden quest is the Scraps of Mystery. It sends you on a long journey across the entirety of Eos, searching for clues and Sylvester’s Map Pieces. There’s a total of fourteen steps in this quest. It took hours and hours of careful searching and patience. As a result, we’ve compiled a guide with maps with the exact locations of all 14 Mystery Maps and Map Scraps for you.

We hope that you’re enjoying playing Final Fantasy XV as much as we are and that our guides will help you with the trickier parts. Check out our compilation of 100 FFXV guides for more help when you need it to make your gaming experience even better.
