Decided to check out ESO again after not playing since a few months after launch.
I noticed that there is a load of “DLC” and now the expansion and I am a bit confused on where my account stands and what I should do regarding that.
My account has the ability to play every race within the 3 factions I believe its Tamriel Unlimited, but nothing else. So then my question is what do I do. Do I buy the game over again on steam with all the DLC, do I buy the DLC individually, does subscribing get me that content permanently? And should I buy Morrowind now or wait to make sure I will be able to get into the game.
Any suggestions on these topic/and or any gameplay suggestions or tips would be much appreciated!

Morrowind isn’t needed unless you want access the the Warden class, which is fun to play btw. It is the only dlc that requires real money to buy. Other than that, all dlc can be accessed with ESO plus. If you are serious about the game just buy ESO plus. 15 USD per month and you get all DLC, permanent exp boost, crafting bag access (by far the most useful thing), and 1500 crowns each month.
What I did, is bought ESO plus for a few months, saved my crowns, then bought all the DLC I wanted with those crowns. Then, I stopped ESO plus and I have all the dlc. I’m not a crafter so not a huge reason for craft bag, and my characters are pretty well leveled to the point that I don’t need the extra 10% boost.
In short, don’t rebuy the game. Buy Morrowind or don’t. Buying ESO plus is the best way to get other dlc access.
A lot has changed since then.
What I would recommend is to log in and play the base game for a while, before committing to either subscribing for access to DLCs (access only lasts as long as your subscription, but items obtained can still be used after the subscription) and the crafting bag (holds a seemingly infinite amount of crafting raw and refined materials, motif stones and etc.), or buying access to the individual DLCs through the crown store (in-game microtransaction). This way, if things don’t work out the way you had hoped, you don’t ‘lose’ as much.
The game has plenty to offer even without the DLCs, and since it’s free to play once you have purchased the base game, you can already log in and see for yourself. Some of the content and items from the DLCs may be game changing in the endgame, but it won’t be a big issue unless you were already v10/12 and active in the trials before you first quit. Furthermore, not all the DLCs are of equal importance to the endgame, to leveling and/or itemisation – they tend to have different focus – you should read up on them before buying access.
That makes sense, I was a bit confused on the whole subscription vs crown store thing. TES 6 wont be out for 1000 years and I need a new MMO so hoping I can get into it. I guess i’ll hold off on Morrowind then, unless there is a a really good reason to get it other than the additional class.
Morrowind is mostly just the new trial, the new class, PvP Battleground and solo quest content; not really that crucial for a returning player. Some might say it is even underwhelming, considering the pre-release advertisement and hype. Nonetheless, I would recommend finding out as much details as you can before committing to buy when you decide the time is right; it is always better to make an informed decision, even if money is not an issue.
