Misconceptions Regarding ESO

We are excited to share the first of many videos from Tamriel Foundry delving into the mechanics of Elder Scrolls Online. These videos will eventually consist of boss strategies, pvp tactics, class guides, and more; however, our first video is designed to clarify some of the misconceptions that frequently circulate regarding The Elder Scrolls Online. We hope you enjoy the video, and would be interested to hear your feedback in the comment section below.

    Haha, hopefully we weren’t too terrifyingly different than what you had expected!

    Hello sir anonymous,

    Unfortunately (I guess) you cannot actually click the hotbar since your reticle is fixed in the center of the screen. You only have numbers 1-6 to reach on the keyboard, though, so casual players should find it a lot less daunting  than the keybinding requirements inherent in most MMOs.

    P.S. sounds like you’re embarrassed at the doctors office; “hey doc…so, umm, my friend has this girlfriend who….well, she’s a clicker…” ;)

    Wow. A targeting system that works, is original, AND doesn’t suck everything forever. That’s new. What I would like to see is what all that armor is. I see iron and stuff, but I don’t recognize a lot of it. There seems to be a wide variety of armor and weapons, so there won’t be a thousand people running around with Volendrung and Ebony Mail. Exalted @Atropos could you tell me anything about armor, I’m already over the targeting system.

    By the pricking of my thumbs,

    Something wicked this way comes!

    I’d just like to point out that you stated Zenimax was Bethesda’s sister company when that’s actually not true. Zenimax is Bethesda’s parent company.

     

    Just wanted to point that out, it’s been bugging me for a bit.

    Good job, both of you!
    Lot of information you put together will surely help all confused players.

    It’s actually not untrue. Zenimax Online is Bethesda’s sister company. Zenimax Media is Zenimax Online and Bethesda’s parent company.

    @OhDearGod, I’d say haters are not welcome on this site…Do you have anything to contribute?

    Not really. You can simply role a new character and adventure through that factions provinces.

    I’d rather pay a subscription for a well managed game, with content getting released regularly. Than a F2P game with buy to win cash shops, and no content additions outside expansions.

    Nice video guys and even nicer to have some info cleared up for us, 1 question though will each race a its own racial abilities like in the single player titles?

    While I could certainly suggest it, the decision of whether or not to produce a game for consoles is one that would have needed to be made (and was made) several years ago. Furthermore, it’s a decision I 100% agree with for the good of the game.

    They actually haven’t stated whether or not there will be racial abilities in ESO at this time. Be sure to check up on our site, because it will be posted as soon as we know. :)

    I am one of those pathetic old-timers who soloed to level 80 in WoW (back in the day) so I’m very heartened to hear the word I was hoping for: “solo”! I don’t have any peers who game, I’m far too spazzy and inept to be an asset to any group, though I might join a guild of fellow non-PvP like I did in WoW.

     

    This is not a dig at the vast majority of players who are not representative of my preferred “Lone Wolf”-style, btw.

    You could easily create more than 1 character for the purpose of exploring all of Tamriel, you know.  It should give you an excuse to even explore the perspective of certain Races in the game.

    Oh, ok. I thought ZOS and ZM were one company all-together.
