Whether you just got booted from finishing up a dungeon or are waiting for maintenance to finish so you can get back in-game, checking the server status of Elder Scrolls Online is important for players. Not everyone can sit at their computer and refresh the ESO launcher repeatedly, so if you’re wondering how long Elder Scrolls Online server maintenance lasts, read on for some tips on checking ESO Server Status.
Elder Scrolls Online server status on High Isle launch day
Currently, the PC NA Megaserver is offline due to database issues. The estimated end time for maintenance is 1:00 PM ET. This is an extension of the previous estimated end time of 11:00 AM ET, so it’s not unreasonable to assume it could extend even further. As mentioned earlier, you could try to log in every few minutes — but the process is not fun. No one wants to load up the launcher and wait patiently for a few seconds only to be told that servers are undergoing maintenance.
A better way to check is to load up ESO Server Status, an independently owned webpage that ping the servers every minute or so and shows you the status of ESO. The webpage automatically refreshes every ping, so you can leave it open and glance at it every few minutes.
Official announcements on Elder Scrolls Online server status
At the top of the webpage, if servers are offline, will be a link to the official Elder Scrolls Online forums. Whenever unplanned or extended maintenance occurs, the helpful Community Team at ZeniMax Online Studios will post an explanation. The Server Status webpage covers all of the megaservers, including PC, Xbox, and PlayStation, and it works on mobile devices as well. This is the easiest way to check server status and get into the game as soon as it’s back up. Just be aware that you might run into login issues even if the webpage says that servers are up — you’re not the only one rushing to get back in-game, after all.
