Re: The Elder Scrolls Online Official Thread

To be completely honest, I am quite excited for this game. Never been much of an elder scrolls player but this. This sounds like a ton of fun. I hope they really make it an experience and we cant rush 1-x in three days.

Re: The Elder Scrolls Online Official Thread

Well i have been reading about the leveling experience and they say there is about 150 hours of content, not including all the side quests, guild quests and PVP (which also has loads of quests within Cyrodiil) so if you do everything there is to do and really get stuck into the story then you are going to take a nice LONG time to hit 50.

Then there is all the level 50 content, plus you get to play ALL the factions quests as well. Then there is crafting that actually matters, so running around and making end level gear actually serves a purpose and finding all the books to craft in the style of all the races armor.

I am really looking forward to this game.

I chose Argonian and the first that first alliance... i remember hating the dominions xD

EDIT: i can't add anyone in the game, all just turns up as "account not found". Im even confused if i am playing on NA or EU server right now.. that "megaserver" concept confused me. BTW, i can't seem to find anyways to show latency in this game.

Re: The Elder Scrolls Online Official Thread

so yeah,.. was a bit disappointed to find the same bugs as before...

1.) Quests not working

2.) Game crashing on logout

3.) Getting stuck after NPC quest dialog

4.) Weapon attack animation stuck glitch
:thumbup:

interesting is that if you fall into lava, you burn and die but when you stand on any fire, you don't burn and die
:clap:

[EDIT]

for next time (if the bugs are not fixed by then) make sure to relog on any bug (quest or NPC wise) you might encounter. Logging out of your game and back in again "fixes" the bug. (Unless your game crashes on log-out)

> Re-log Character
> Quit entire game + Launcher and re-open

Re: The Elder Scrolls Online Official Thread

You could join 5 guilds in one account. Pretty interesting, the guilds are linked to the account and not to the characters... i have a character in Ebonheart pact and Aldmeri Dominion yay!

Re: The Elder Scrolls Online Official Thread

What a crappy beta... There were so many bugs that it really just made me frustrated and with so little time left to launch I am starting to feel like my pre-order was money wasted. I really do hope the dev's are actually fixing all the bugs and not just releasing patch notes to quiet people down, did they think we wouldn't notice??

Another huge concern I had was once i reached level 10 I had a major dip in questing. I actually found myself struggling to find quests to do to progress (being that 5/6 quest lines I was on were dead ended because they were bugged out) I guess if the bugs are fixed this wont happen, but it was a major concern for me.... The leveling process didn't flow at all.

Other than that there was nothing new to get excited about, PvP was so laggy and was not fun without being in a guild, which is bad news for solo players.

Starting to feel very uncomfortable about the release date being so soon..

This is a cool site to mess around on to theorycraft : http://www.esocalc.com, there are a few translations missing but you get the point. :thumbup:

Re: The Elder Scrolls Online Official Thread

Well they said quest should reveal themselves by exploring, talking to random NPCs or world interactives. Maybe they spend emphasis to fix NA servers and the NA client and thus EU was a bit left out ? I feel like no things were actually fixed - since I had the same bugs and errors as in the previous beta.

Wasn't it possible to go to the other starting zones (or level equal zones) and get quests there ? That's what I did in Guild Wars 2. Basically just wiped one map and moved to the same level but a different zone area.

Can someone plis explain how the game mechanics work ? I am so confused, I do a quest and it basically changes the environment - houses burning etc. when done with quest, everything goes back to normal and people (NPCs) cheer for me (of cause ;)) when I run past them. Do all other players see this or does every player in game basically reside in their own little instance bubble ??? Like environment and structures are instanced but character animations, monster AI's and effects are not - they keep global visuality? :?:

Re: The Elder Scrolls Online Official Thread

As far as I know you can only go to the other starting zones at level 50. That's how you can do all 3 of the factions quest lines (you stop at level 50 but keep going to get more talent points and such) and I tried the whole exploring thing... and to be honest there was nothing really happening. I am sure this was because the 5 other quests I was on were bugged to hell. And maybe because they were not complete the other available quests were not triggered? I have no idea.... it was a total bloody mess.

I also noticed the quests that had an effect on the environment and I have no idea how the hell they do it... it must be a type of instance thing going on there.. I really don't know.

Another thing that really got me nice and pissed off was the fact that i worked my arse off to collect the 17k gold for a horse only to find out that the horse speed is like 2% faster than walking LOL! I freaked out!

In general the game is just not ready to be released in less than a month (taking in to consideration early access for us pre-order fools)

Re: The Elder Scrolls Online Official Thread

Ahhh, apparently, the things are fixed :D Just not in the beta. They are all fixed in the actual release. The beta was basically just used to stress test the servers and load thereof (pvp stress test) :D The beta is actually an old version of the game.
Now I am curious to know if I have to download 60GB for the original game unlike the 28GB for the beta...

But you must admit, a horse does look "cooler" than walking ;)

Yeah and I had a random wounded NPC follow me at some point. Turns out I needed to talk to him to initiate the quest I was actually on :S

Re: The Elder Scrolls Online Official Thread

Guys, please its beta, dont judge until you have played alongside epic companions like myself. Also on the technology of the environment, its called phasing, basically there are some things that only you can see in the world. They combine the phasing if you are in a group.

Re: The Elder Scrolls Online Official Thread

Yeah, I do agree with healdon. 1 month isn't enough to make me feel comfortable that it will be ready. They did limit players to the first actual island (not starting one), so who knows, maybe there are things we don't know about yet.

The questing thing is called instancing/phasing, WoW WotLK introduced it first as far as I know

Some reading material for it:

Re: The Elder Scrolls Online Official Thread

Very Cool! Imperials are tipped to be awesome tanks! Sword and board!

I just remembered that with my pre-order I got the explorers pack which allows me to play any race in any faction, so the faction poll is a little pointless.. unless people didn't pre-order...

Breton healer FTW! :grin:

Not half pointless lol, the starting areas for each factions are different, we wont be able to play together.

Re: The Elder Scrolls Online Official Thread

I suppose, then who is to say the Dominion starting area is the best.... We should vote then on which area is coolest and not which race we want to play, and i enjoyed the EP starting area much more than the dominion....

Re: The Elder Scrolls Online Official Thread

Tht's why we had this vote, those that played the previous beta would probably find them all about the same, u'll meet equal amount of quests and monsties on each starting point.

besides, if u pre-ordered it, u can play as any race in any faction lol, im gonna go imperial on this weekend.

Re: The Elder Scrolls Online Official Thread

The main reason for the faction is that we have to choose it for guild alliance wars, where only the alliance specified is eligible afaik? I may be wrong, we can test it out this weekend :D

Re: The Elder Scrolls Online Official Thread

don't think I will be able to make any beta progress this weekend. All my account information seems gone. No login will work and the reset password or find username links simply don't accept my name or my email. Feels like I wasted N$ 550 . Hopefully, my account wasn't hacked or something (exposing my cred card etc). So I still pray to Murphy to spare me and to have mercy on a noobs soul. I have contacted ESO support, but they're obviously busy...

Anyway, enjoy the beta :wave:

Re: The Elder Scrolls Online Official Thread

Well, early Access Starts this Sunday at 1:00 PM

Those that wants to play should consider start patching NOW... opened up my lanucher and it's 10GB worth of update... damn!

Re: The Elder Scrolls Online Official Thread

Early access was sort of smooth thus far.. however, there were certain times when the servers simply stopped responding, or the packets travelling at bare minimum, thus ULTRA LAG!
no way to ping latency still, but it seems, ESO only uses around 5-10kb/s

Today, there was no way of playing it at all, i log in a character, the data packets flows for a few seconds, then stopped moving and dropped to 0Bytes, every npc and interaction was halted, 2 mins later it was disconnected.

Not sure if this problem relates to Not having a european server right now or just telecom, but it is flippin' annoying.

Re: The Elder Scrolls Online Official Thread

So I played this morning and I dc'ed once, and once my router had an issue. Other than that, no lag and played fine for the rest of the time. However, I saw Reelo (who had for some reason added me as a friend) logon/logoff continuously. I am guessing it's his line or a client side problem - since i was able to play fine at that same time...
