Main article: Emperor

Emperor, also referred to as The Pretenders by the Empress Regent Clivia Tharn,[1] is a PvP-related title in The Elder Scrolls Online. Despite the title, an Emperor will not have direct access to the Ruby Throne, due to interference by the army of Molag Bal.[2]

Ascension and DethroningEdit

If an Alliance controls all of the keeps surrounding the Imperial City, the player with the highest Alliance Points will be crowned Emperor.[3]

The Emperor receives an entire skill line which can only be gained through achieving Emperor status. Powers include being able to make siege more effective, being able to knock down walls quicker, and having voice of the Emperor commands.[3]

An Emperor is dethroned when their alliance loses all the keeps necessary to crown an Emperor, the next time they are killed, log out, or switch zones.[4] The dethroned Emperor will still keep their skill line, although the abilities in it become much less powerful.[3]

  • Becoming Emperor?

    • I think becoming Emperor/Empress won't be something special. You won't manage the Empire but you will more become a Master Pvper. I say that ...
    • You essentially just get an OP armor set, health and XP bonuses as Emperor.
