Introduction

Community Managers Jessica Folsom and Gina Bruno with Zone Lead Jason Barnes accompanied by Lead Writer Bill Slavicsek went over the last installment of the Legacy of Breton year-long adventure for The Elder Scrolls Online. They revealed it to be called the Firesong DLC which had its Update 36 Combat Preview released the day before. 

During the stream they revealed an assortment of information including an addition to the Tales of Tribute Patron decks, a new zone, Razum-Dar and more.

Location

The developers confirmed the island's inhabitants are closely linked to the Stonelore Druids where their living structures are actually woven into the ruins or nature of the island much like how Markarth was interwoven into the Dwemer ruins by Reach culture.

It seems the island zone is located right above High Isle on the world map:

Tales of Tribute

Druid King Deck - As Jessica Folsom described it, the deck's playstyle is centered around the "right types of cards at the right time, order in which you play your cards produces good results."

Maormer are confirmed to be present in the new zone, part of the Dreadsails it seems.

Wandering world bosses are making a return from the Deadlands Quarter 4 DLC of 2021 after positive player feedback.

One boss is called Timbershade and has been described to be a nightmarish creation on the dev-creative end, apparently Timbershade is one of the island's guardians that have gone rogue or insane over the centuries:

Lore

Druid King is referred to as one of the aspects of the Firesong DLC lore. The last Druid King is the same Druid King that led the druids out of High Rock and onto the islands. After the last Druid King, the Druids divided themselves into three factions.

The history and lore of the Druid King plays an important role in the last 2022 DLC storyline.

Razum-Dar also is making a return but the reason as to why he's on the island is still a mystery.

Darien is not making a return, as confirmed by Jason Barnes.

Quen has made a return from the Thieves Guild DLC. If you've played the Thieves Guild DLC before, she will remember you. If you have not, she will appear as a Quen before she joined up with the Thieves Guild.

Petting Interactions

More petting interactions with dogs and now horses have been added in the zone after positive player feedback post-Blackwood.
