Elder Scrolls Online’s Flames Of Ambition DLC Now Available, Patch Notes Reveal Extensive Changes

The Flames of Ambition DLC is now available for Elder Scrolls Online PC players, kicking off the year-long Gates of Oblivion adventure. Flames of Ambition brings two new dungeons, new rewards, new item sets, and a whole new set of collectibles and Achievements.

“The Gates of Oblivion year-long adventure begins in fire with the Flames of Ambition DLC game pack and two exciting new dungeons, the Cauldron and Black Drake Villa,” the ESO team announced. “While both dungeons are exciting stand-alone stories in their own right, both also set up the events of the upcoming Blackwood Chapter and beyond.”

Black Drake Villa sees you teaming up with Eveli Sharp-Arrow as you search its ancient archives before it’s set ablaze by mercenaries of the True-Sworn. Meanwhile, the Cauldron will have you fighting alongside Dremora Lyranth to battle through hordes of Deadric beasts.

Update 29 launched alongside Flames of Ambition, which makes some huge changes to the current Champion System. The ESO team hopes that the redesigned system will let you “better tailor your characters and their playstyles based on the way you want to play.”

The new update also includes a champion bar, letting you slot up to four powerful passive boons for each constellation, allowing for a new degree of flexibility and customization.

Here are a few highlights from the Flames of Ambition patch notes.
