The TYPHOON build by DTStromfox is a Stamina Sorcerer PVP build. The build is compatible with Elsweyr Chapter & Update 22 (v5.0.5). This Stamina Sorcerer is great for small scale PVP and Battlegrounds. The TYPHOON has a focus on Damage over Time and Health Recovery.

The best option for the TYPHOON build in general is Tri-stat Food. Tri-stat Food increases all primary stats.
The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion is iconic for its time. Especially glorified for the graphics, story and "fast travel" mechanics, it was a game that impressed many. Most memorable for most is the beautiful scenery in which the story took place, the scenery of Cyrodiil. In the Elder Scrolls Online we are back in Cyrodiil, although in an era before the story of Oblivion. The maps look very much alike, yet there are some noteworthy differences.
This keep of the Ebonheart Pact does not show any remains in the era of Oblivion. The only possible link is Lake Arrius. Which is located north of Cheydinhal.
Blue Road Keep
Yet again, Blue Road Keep is non-existant in the time the Oblivion crisis takes place. The road leading from the Imperial City to Cheydinhal is called The Blue Road, but that is the only reference to this keep.
This keep is located on the western side of The Reed River in ESO. It is the most southern home keep of the Ebonheart Pact. In Oblivion the remains of the keep are not to be found. Instead we find the settlement of Drakelowe. It is a tiny settlement, only containing one house and only one habitant called Melisande.
Located east of the Temple of the Ancestor Moths, Kingscrest Keep is the most northern home keep of the Ebonheart Pact. Remains of this keep are not found on the Oblivion map.
An outpost in ESO, but a medium-sized fort in Oblivion. Located south from Blue Road Keep it seems to have moved location for gameplay purposes. The remains found in Oblivion are located far more to the east than in the online version.
A fort in both version of Cyrodiil. However the location of Fort Ash in the Online version seems to be at nearly, if not exactly, the same location of Fort Nikel in the Oblivion version. Which obviously was done for gameplay purposes.
Once a magnificant keep in the Alliance War, only a small town or village in the Oblivion game. The town or village consists of only two houses. This wasn't always the case. Aleswel once was a large village but all villagers were evicted on pain of death by Grand Warlord Dortene of the Daggerfall Covenant. There are no remains of the fort to be found in the Oblivion game.
The most northern fortification in The Elder Scrolls Online, only a rock in The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion. At this location the road looks like a dead end. However a road leads to the east, eventually leading you to the Serpent's Trail and Pale Pass. It ends at Fort Pale Pass, the entry way into Skyrim which we visit in the Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.
Fort Glademist was abandoned after the Alliance War. Nothing remained of the fort and the only references one can find in the Oblivion game is the fact that it is located in the Glademist Fields area. In which Glademist cave is located, a cave network used by the Blackwood Company.
No remains can be found of this fort in Oblivion. It probably was abandoned after the Alliance War, neglected and has fallen into ruins.
This outpost is located between Chalman Keep and Fort Aleswell. The village of Bleaker's Way was first settled by Ulf the Bleaker. In the times of the Alliance War, the villagers were ordered to leave the village. Those who refused would be punished with death. During the war giants occupied the village. In Oblivion the village was reclaimed by men. There are no remains of Bleaker's Outpost in Oblivion.
The only remains of Castle Brindle in Oblivion is Brindle Home. Which is a village located between Chorrol and Skingrad. The location of Castle Brindle relative to Brindle Home seems to be far more south, probably for gameplay purposes. The castle seems to be located near The Gold Road, which connects Skingrad with the Red Ring Road around the Imperial City.
There are no remains of Castle Bloodmayne in The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion. The only reference that can be found is Bloodmayne Cave, which also is a delve (mini-dungeon) in ESO.
Castle Faregyl is a key location of the Aldmeri Dominion. The castle can not be found in the Oblivion. Instead we find Faregyl Inn, located west of The Green Road which leads from the Imperial City to Bravil. No remains of the castle can be found which was located on the east side of The Green Road.
The castle of Roebeck is located perfectly on the map. However in Oblivion the castle is located near the White Rose River. This river could have formed after the era the Alliance War takes place in, because nothing of this river can be found in the Online version. There are some bridges to be found that cross dried up riverbanks. This could be the White Rose River.
An outpost located south of Fort Ash and north-west of Castle Roebeck. In Oblivion we find the remains of this outpost in the form of a small fort. The location of Nikel is the most noteworthy. In Oblivion it is located next to the bridge leading into the Imperial City, west of the village of Weye. In the Online version the outpost is located far more south, near Fort Virtue on the Oblivion map.

Elder Scrolls Online has been a project in progress ever since its launch. The fourth big DLC is the Dark Brotherhood DLC. Its predicessors were Orsinium, Imperial City and the Thieves Guild. Each were received with joy and sometimes with a little bit of pain due to changes. In the latest patch, ZOS focussed on Magicka. In this patch they said to give the Stamina builds a large change.
Unlike the previous patch, we decided to not show the changes in the blog. To see what will change for you in the Dark Brotherhood Patch, we would like to direct you to our special page: Dark Brotherhood Patch.

Most noteworthy patch notes:

- Adhazabi Aba-daro the Golden, a rare item merchant that appears at set locations on the map at set times, carrying rare items. You’ll be able to find Adhazabi in the following locations:
Western Elsweyr Gate (AD)
Northern Highrock Gate (DC)
Southern Morrowind Gate (EP)
- Forward Camps, these camps are making a comeback and will be available for purchase at the Siege Merchant.

- Recipies will appear on vendors throughout Tamriel.
- Food recipies will be sold by Chefs.
- Drink recipies will be sold by Brewers.
- Provisioning Writs do no longer award recipies.
And much more!
As you might (or might not) have noticed. Your Elder Scrolls Online client received a major update. Including changes to skills, passives and much more. But most importantly: The Imperial City DLC.
The Imperial City was built by the Ayleids in the Merethic Era. And survived a long time in Tamriel. In the Elder Scrolls Online, Molag Bal dropped anchors on the city, allowing daedric creatures to capture the Imperial City.
In the Imperial City DLC you will be fighting in an environment with mix of PvE and PvP. Creating tense fights between players and daedric creatures and bosses. To excel in this area, your character will need to be versatile and ready to counter any attacks by players from other alliances, whilst being busy fighting bosses and creaters also. Allowing great dynamic gameplay as a result.
How to gain access to the DLC
If you are an ESO Plus member, you will get access to the DLC automatically as long as your ESO Plus membership is current.
If you do not have ESO Plus, you can get access to the DLC very easily by purchasing the DLC in the Crown Store in the game[?]. You can aquire Crowns by purchasing them in the Shop.
