Here's what most players know about Elder Scrolls Online's PvP setup, straight from the mouths of the developers: When the vicious Daedric Prince Molag Bal attacks the Imperial City, he generates a huge power vacuum. Each faction vies for a piece of the province of Cyrodiil, but only the strongest...

Have you heard that rumbling in the air over the last few months?
