- Though crossed by caravans and Covenant troops going to and from Cyrodiil, this wild region of eastern Hammerfell is a virtual no-man's-land. It's anchored on the east and west by the towns of Elinhir and Dragonstar.
Craglorn is a region situated in northeastern Hammerfell between Bangkorai and Cyrodiil. The zone can be entered at any level via the gate in Bangkorai, and it is also possible to travel to Craglorn via cart from the Alliance capital cities, Elden Root, Mournhold, and Wayrest. The main storyline revolves around the disappearance of the constellations from the sky.
Originally designed as a Veteran 4-player Adventure Zone, Craglorn was overhauled in Update 12 and is now a hybrid zone containing both solo and group content. Areas involved with the zone's main storyline can all be tackled solo, as can the majority of the overworld. "Group Areas" are denoted with a plus sign on the world map and are aimed at groups of 2 to 4. Craglorn also contains several 12-player trials, as well as the 4-player Dragonstar Arena.
Craglorn is split into three regions. Lower Craglorn comprises the two in the south of Craglorn, centered on the town of Belkarth. Upper Craglorn lies to the north, with the town of Dragonstar at its western end. Access between Upper and Lower Craglorn is by a rocky pass in the west, or through a sundered Iron Orc barricade in the east.
Places with a plus sign + on the icon are designed for groups.
