Re: The Elder Scrolls Online Official Thread

downloading... no dota for today I guess. Hopefully done DL when I come home 10 GB left =S

[EDIT]

Can still play offline against bots tho :thumbup: :lol:

[EDIT2]

about 29 GB in total , including patches. Login screen is awesome, background music is awesome.

[EDIT3]

anyone who wants to copy the game files is welcome to copy them from me. I will try to have them copied today and have them at work on Friday...

2.) Install the downloader / ESO loading application.
3.) When download begun , quit install and make sure program is closed.
4.) Overwrite your files with my files.
5.) Start your downloader / ESO loading application to see if download done.
6.) Press on the "Repair" function in the left screen. It wil verify files.
7.) Press "Play" and see if you can get to the login screen.

What you need :

1.) You must have the ESO BETA key
2.) Any form of transport to take you to my work place
3.) Time between 09:00 and 17:00, Friday
4.) A WORKING USB External Hard Drive or USB Stick with at least 32 GB free Space
5.) Wait time of about 32 GB being copied over USB
6.) A bit of luck that this works as this is just my theory

Re: The Elder Scrolls Online Official Thread

My download should be done tomorrow morning and Tempy's is already done (Probably cyberion as well), so if you don't finish downloading by tomorrow and need to game you can just contact one of us, Fantasy.

Also Tempy said something about them playing together for this Beta, so perhaps we can join them.

Re: The Elder Scrolls Online Official Thread

Foamy and cyberion always willing to help.

***WARNING TOTAL THREAD DERAIL***
We should sponsor an NGC dinner with the money we got from Namlan. Like a braai, invite some gamers, especially newer ones to the community. Some sort of community outreach programme. Get some exposure. You know what foams, we should like approach schools and stuff. Not NESA just us two, introduce NGC and then tell them theres a community out there waiting for them, like St Pauls, your old alma mater etc.

healadon

Re: The Elder Scrolls Online Official Thread

Thnx perco, already been in contact with him.

NGC should totally get more coverage, it's a awesome place to receive and share info, and as far as i can see the community is great. The more people we can get in the better it will be for everyone.

Looking forward to getting a really strong TESO nam guild running!

Healdon and Fantasy - The teamspeak ip is ts.gamingnamibia.org. You guys can speak amongst yourselves and choose a server so we all on the same one :D (PvP preferred <3)

Re: The Elder Scrolls Online Official Thread

I must agree with you there Healadon. I played all the classes and all the alliances just too see how things are. It was quite an impressive experience and I am looking forward to the official release. Questing was really fascinating and hope to see endless quests and missions and many more things I haven't even seen yet.

I do hope they fix loading times and also this "wait in queue" before load and hopefully they fix all the quests that were broken.

As everything gets wiped, I didn't go further into questing than LV8 , sorcerer and night blade ... good times, good times coming up indeed...

healadon

Re: The Elder Scrolls Online Official Thread

yeah the load times were crazy... and i spent a good 3/4 hours just sending in all the bugs and crashes i experienced. But all in all it was a good beta.

there was a shload of lag as well yesterday and seeing as the game runs on one big megaserver, I am a little worried that when they remove the player cap (it was set to only allow a specific number of players, that's why you got a que sometimes) the lag is going to kill the game.

I sent in a lot of questions about lag and got no answers.... this was very worrying...

But damn... what a game. I have never in my life wanted to read everything, listen to everyone and do all I could to complete all the quests, bu tin ESO i just couldn't help myself. It's very engaging! Finally something worth my monthly 180 buks...

Re: The Elder Scrolls Online Official Thread

I really enjoyed it, but didn't invest too much time into playing it since all the characters are going to be wiped. What I did play however was very enjoyable.

Updated main post with some more info on prices and a skill calc.

Megaservers made everything a little easier, however the only question that remains is:
- With guilds you are locked to a specific Alliance, does this conflict with your individual character alliance in wars?
- And which Alliance will our guild be?

Re: The Elder Scrolls Online Official Thread

Lag ? I had no lag. I once had a 1 hour 27 minute queue , which I cancelled. But other than that, I had absolutely no in game lag. If you have telecom, then they have/had issues on the weekend.

Exactly, right ? Listening to every single quests and it's story and the quest giver... Sometimes you'll find a random NPC you chat up and they give you a quest ... In what other game does that happen ??

Indeed , it will be my first mmo I spend monthly $ but I think it's worth it !

healadon

Re: The Elder Scrolls Online Official Thread

The game ran 100% with no lag till about level 8/9 and then there was a spam attack on the chat as to the lag that was killing everyone. The game might run on a megaserver but it runs multiple "instances" of the game so they can spread the population around, so you don't have 50 000 people in a starting zone at once. And I think the "instance" I was running on took a heavy dump and just broke. I had to go get a new key off curse.com and make a new beta account to play again.

Hopefully just beta pains, but still had me worried, cause trying to get stuff done with that amount of lag was not fun. I don't trust this megaserver business.

Re: The Elder Scrolls Online Official Thread

Is GameFly an addon for TESO ? Or do you need a proxy for TESO ? I use battleping to play Diablo (paid subscription) and it works well ... Never tried it with TESO tho (maybe they add it one day)

GameFly is the site listed on post 1 of the thread where you can get TESO for 20% off. Can't seem to use it outside of US though.

Re: The Elder Scrolls Online Official Thread

well if it helps anyone out there... I did some research and for those of us who are going to be dedicated healers, we need to play the "restoring light" skill line with a Templar as they are set to be the main healers. In this case the Breton race is the best to chose as it they have a major affinity for magic, not only can u sit there and just absorb magic attacks they also have a nak for restoration magic and a extra restoration spell available to them later on.

So the Daggerfall Covenant gets my vote. And they have Orcs. Orcs rule!

Re: The Elder Scrolls Online Official Thread

Since Aldmeri are winning as main faction so far, I shall be focusing on Altmer (9% increased Magicka regeneration rate in combat) as a healing class for Alliance battles, seeing how it fares in comparison to Breton (3% Reduced Magicka cost). Bretons still win on spell resist though (96).

Okay okay - Altmer (9% increased Magicka regeneration rate in combat) and better looks vs. Bretons (3% Reduced Magicka cost)and spell resist (96) and ugly looks :P

Re: The Elder Scrolls Online Official Thread

I really don't want to play as the Dominion.. I was hoping to play as a Breton, with the reduced magika cost and extra healing spell. But on the other hand, with the starting zones now optional who really cares. (Dominion starting are was actually voted the best) So I guess I am going to have to get used to playing with a Altmer freak.... Oh the joy! :thumbup:

Has anyone's client started updating yet? cause mine has not and the beta starts tomorrow... :eh:

UPDATE: Just checked on my laptop now and the client is updating, like... 45mb...

Maybe you didn't notice ? The updater update was about 60MB and the patching was about 250MB ... it went by quickly, so I almost didn't notice it. I thought it was more , but that's just how it felt like.
