Zenimax Online Studios announced upcoming content to Elder Scrolls Online in a blog post Friday as part of its ongoing Season of the Dragon in the imminent Scalebreaker DLC.

You’ll be able to battle vampires in group dungeon Moongrave Fane as you and your friends attempt to stop a terrible ritual from taking place. Per Mike Finnigan, ESO Dungeon Lead,

This Dragonguard vampire Grundwulf is convinced that he can drink the blood of the Dragon Sahrotnax and absorb his power. Realizing the folly of this endeavor and the implications should Grundwulf succeed, his fellow Dragonguard Chevalier Renald has ventured to the Fane to stop his friend.

Within this dungeon is an ancient temple guarded by the Hollowfang vampires, in addition to puzzle elements. However, these are more than standard puzzles, and will feature ornate blocks that will have to be moved around the map in order to progress. Once again, ESO Dungeon Lead, Mike Finnigan,

Moongrave’s sliding stones are a unique puzzle mechanic we developed for the Dungeon, but they are more than just a door-opening mechanism. Because they have weight and collision, they can be used in boss fights as well. They are one more layer of interactivity we provide for players to make an impact in the dungeon and fight spaces.

Of course, rewards in the form of powerful loot is to be expected, including three new gear sets from bosses. This includes the Dro’zakar’s Claws medium set, boosting your damage if you have a build that utilizes bleeds.
