The Elder Scrolls Online Griefers poisons players in the central city of Craglorn

The Griefers have found a way to exploit an AOE poison attack, bringing it to safety in Craglorn towns where it spreads to other players.

Craglorn is under siege right now and it’s not big bosses, mighty hordes of enemies or the usual creepy Elder Scrolls Online crawlies. Sorrows have found a way to bring the poison area of ​​effect attack to major hubs and towns, intoxicating unlucky passers-by.


You’re generally safe in a city as far as MMOs go, unless you’re accepting player duels or pissing off the city guard. This is where you go to relax, create, play Tales of Tribute or whatever you do in your free time. But with the Zeal of Zenithar event live, there are more people than ever in the central city of Craglorn, so Sorrows are taking advantage (thanks, ESO Hub).

There are troll encounters that poison you, giving you an AOE that spreads that poison to other players. And usually this AOE is limited to the vicinity of the enemy that poisoned you, but some players have found a way to take this AOE much further, reaching towns. Especially Belkarth, the principal. With such large groups of players, this AOE can spread and spread and spread, poisoning countless poor turfs.

Those trying to do quests, participate in the event, turn in dailies, or anything else are literally plagued by this problem, with threads popping up asking ZOS to permaban those griefers. This is an exploit more than anything else, so hopefully Zenimax will take note and fix the issue before the event ends. With Craglorn so busy, he’s ripe for this kind of attack.

Otherwise, your best bet is to stay clear of other players and watch out for large toxic gas circles. Even bustling cities are not immune to death. Either way, the Zeal of Zenithar event is live right now, so you can participate, craft, and earn tickets. If you offer five tickets, you can even get crown boxes.
