Become the Emperor in The Elder Scrolls Online


In a recent interview with the Official Xbox Magazine, The Elder Scrolls Online game director Paul Sage revealed that if a player puts in the effort and time, they will have the opportunity to become Emperor of Cyrodil. Achieving the throne won’t be easy, as it will take a lot of dedication and time investment into the PvP part of the game.

In addition to just saying that you are the Emperor of the land, players who gain this rank will also unlock a unique skill tree that is only available to players who have become the Emperor. The special skills will though carry throughout “their lives in The Elder Scrolls Online”.

“It won’t be easy to become Emperor, but we think people will be glad they worked for it.” said Sage.

Completing various activities through the PvP portion of the game; killing other plays, healing teammates and taking control of Keeps, will gain you, and your chosen Alliance, Alliance Points on top of the experience points and loot. Once an Alliance has control of all the Keeps around the Imperial City, the player within that Alliance with the most Alliance Points will become the Emperor.

Luckily, even when you lose the Emperor title, the new skill tree that you unlocked will still be available for you to use; it will just be weaker.

  • I was very interested in this, until they announced that it had a monthly fee. No way I am paying $60 or more dollars for a game with a bill attached to it each month. I know these cost money to keep online, but give the game away free or very cheap in that case.

    I have a feeling in about a years time this will become like Star Wars from Bioware and become a free to play game. I can’t see it maintaining a strong community if Star Wars couldn’t. Even with Star Wars having other issues with it.
