In the video ZeniMax:
Gives some details of new veteran content.
Shows clips of improved facial animations (they look a whole lot better and convey more emotion).
Explains that new instanced dungeons (group and solo) will scale to the ...

The video starts with a hardboiled line from Taken, then follows Sypher’s Dragonknight through lots of Sypher-versus-everyone-else PVP. On Reddit Sypher was unapologetic about his buffs and exploitation of the quirks of PVP, saying they are built into the game ...
