The Elder Scrolls: Legends 2.11 Patch Notes

The latest version of The Elder Scrolls: Legends is live! This release brings Dragons, Khajiit, Necromancy and over 75 news cards for our Moons of Elsweyr expansion!

Moons of Elsweyr has arrived!

The Khajiit homeland, Elsweyr, is being ravaged: necromancers have arisen, dragons have been unsealed, and Euraxia Tharn holds Rimmen and calls herself Queen. Do what you must to survive in our latest card pack expansion featuring:

  • 77 new collectible cards.
  • Two new gameplay mechanics.
  • A brand new playmat.
  • Four new musical tracks written specifically for The Elder Scrolls: Legends.
  • A new Main Menu background featuring the Moon Gate.
  • 15 new titles.
  • 12 new daily quests with a special introductory questline featuring Razum-Dar.
  • Three new card backs.

New Mechanics

  • Consume: Harness the power of necromancy and Consume the corpses of your creatures for personal gain. Consume allows you to remove a card in your discard pile to get a bonus effect.
  • Wax and Wane: Khajiit are heavily influenced by the moon-phases of Jone and Jode, and some Khajiit exhibit different abilities as the moons wax and wane. The effect you get from Wax/Wane cards alternates each turn: Wax on odd turns, Wane on even turns.

Balance Changes

The following cards have received balance changes: Transitus Shrine, Disciple of Namira, Lillandril Hexmage, Cast Into Time, Hlaalu Oathman, Falkreath Defiler, Archer’s Gambit, Namira’s Shrine, and Dawnbreaker. The next time you log in to Legends (within the next three weeks), we will credit your account with Soul Gems for each copy of a changed card you own (up to three). Details on the changes and explanations behind them are available here.
