Moons of Elsweyr was released on June 27th, 2019! Moons of Elsweyr is the 4th card pack expansion for The Elder Scrolls Legends. The set relates to the events unfolding in The Elder Scrolls Online, the Season of the Dragon and the Elsweyr DLC (see the official Bethesda announcement).

The Khajiit homeland is in turmoil as Imperial forces, led by Euraxia Tharn, occupy the city of Rimmen and have begun spreading their influence throughout Elsweyr. Things become more dire as ancient dragons are unleashed upon the land with devastating machinations all their own.

Moons of Elsweyr contains over 77 new cards, including a host of Khajiit across all attributes. Additionally, the expansion will also provide new in-game music tracks, preconstructed theme decks, new card mechanics and a new playmat.

Here is the official trailer.

3. New Game Mechanics

The Khajiit are closely connected to the twin moons orbiting Tamriel. Their lunar phases play a key role in one of the new mechanics.

Wax and Wane

Cards (Khajiit?) with wax-and wane-power enter play with one of two abilities dictated by the ‘waxing’ and ‘waning’ phases of the moons. These phases change at the end of each of your turns, so timing is key! One odd turns (1, 3, 5, 7, …), a card with this power gains their waxing benefits. However, when the card enters play on even turns, the waning takes effect.

Consume

The second new mechanic in Moons of Elsweyr is Consume. This mechanic relates to the dark art of necromancy that runs unchecked amidst the unrest in Elsweyr. With Consume, you can remove a card in your discard pile from the game to gain advantages as stated on the Necromancer.

The following articles look a little deeper at the mechanics.
