Zenimax shared some more details on adventuring in Greymoor’s Western Skyrim in Elder Scrolls Online.

If you recall, Greymoor was delayed by a week due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. No actual date was provided as to when it would release, however.

The post from Zenimax, however, shares information on Western Skyrim, including the holds of Haafingar, Hjaalmarch, and Karthald which make a return from 2011’s Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. These regions are described as mountainous, cold, but also containing forests and homesteads.

Blackreach was also discussed which will see you adventuring underground as you traverse Dwarven ruins  and uncover the dangers and treasures located there. The post also touched on some of the monsters such as spriggans, giants, trolls, and bears.

Finally, dangerous Harrowstorms were detailed,

“These giant supernatural confluxes now plague the region, draining the life from anything caught nearby. Similar to Dark Anchors or Abyssal Geysers, harrowstorms are group events for any number of players. In the Greymoor main story, you can discover the origin and purpose of these terrible storms. However, as you explore both Western Skyrim and Blackreach, you can run into these events live and must fight alongside your fellow players to shut them down.”
