Legends:Return to Clockwork City

Return to Clockwork City is the third story for The Elder Scrolls: Legends, which released on November 30, 2017. The story is divided into three “maps”, which can be purchased individually with money or in-game gold. A bundled price of USD $19.99/€19.99 for all three maps is offered if purchasing with money. The maps can be individually bought for 1000 in-game gold or USD $7.99/€7.99 each.

The story comes with over 35 missions, and rewards 58 new cards. It follows a story based around the Clockwork City after the demise of Sotha Sil. Similar to The Fall of the Dark Brotherhood story, player choices do not affect the cards you earn. Instead, choices will change the challenges you face as part of the story missions.

Return to Clockwork City Pre-Purchase was available before release for USD $19.99/€19.99 and came with “The Relic Hunter” title. If one purchases the Triple Bundle with real-world money, the Clockwork City Card Back will be awarded.

The story seems to be almost entirely contemporaneous with the events of TES V: Skyrim. See the notes.


The story is split into three maps, with two episodes each and several card rewards per episode. Cards can be earned by completing battles or progressing the story; this is done by selecting nodes on the map interface. New nodes will appear in a linear fashion, with some slight branching within each episode. Battles must initially be completed in “Normal” mode, but a more difficult “Master” mode can later be unlocked. Cutscenes can also be replayed via the map interface.
