As if the Morrowind expansion getting us all misty eyed and nostalgic wasn’t enough, The Elder Scrolls Online will also be getting its first new class since launch. The nature-based Warden is a jack-of-all-trades, able to act as a combination of damage dealer, healer and tank, essentially a solo players' dream come true. TESO’s Warden is shown off in the latest Morrowind trailer, in this case summoning a War Bear to fight by his side, while simultaneously healing, and encasing himself in a defensive block of ice.
As a Warden, you’ll be helping the legendary poet Vivec. He’s suffering from a mysterious ailment while the world around him crumbles and Vvardenfell’s volcano is the throes of destruction.
The downside for longtime Elder Scrolls Online players is that if you want to play as a Warden then you’ll have to start from scratch. There’s going to be no level skips available at launch, but you will at least be able to use the Warden to check out the 30 new hours of story questing available in the expansion. If you ask me that’s probably a decent way to do it for new players, letting you get straight to Morrowind’s nostalgic core without bothering with all the faff surrounding it.
The Elder Scrolls Online: Morrowind will be out on June 6th for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
