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.

    Very good, it cleared some doubts about the targeting system

    You are able to zoom into first person, though the game is made to be played in third.

    Indeed, Dalton! 1st-Person View can be switched into, but Zenimax Online is currently still working to improve it, among many other things.

    But it means that you’ll have incentive to create multiple characters! If not just to explore, you could experiment with different character builds.

    Close, but not quite, Dark Maiden. Skills in ESO are specific abilities, like Slam, or Fiery Reach (both Dragonknight abilities). They are not necessarily overarching weapon or spell schools like Blunt, or Destruction. I suspect that you will not be able to advance your raw character level through crafting, and will be forced to adventure in order to level up.

    However, if you want to have a character that is purely a crafter, hopefully the in-game economy for crafting materials and items will be rich enough to allow for full time crafting characters without requiring those characters to level their combat skills.

    You can do that if you wish, as ES games would allow you to do whatever you like for a character.  You could be primarily a merchant, making/finding goods & selling them to other characters if you wish, but you might want a weapon of your own for self-defense just in case you find yourself in a spot of trouble.  Remember, there be monsters out there…

    I have to be honest. I’m completely against this game coming out for consoles. MMOs do not belong on consoles. Period. But that’s just my own personal opinion. I also feel like Zenimax is way too far along in development right now to even consider creating a console version, even if there was overwhelming public support for such a thing.

    No one knows what the payment model for the game will be at this time.

    They will make other ES games for consoles. :) Elder Scrolls VI will release on consoles, for example.

    You can, by rolling a character of each faction. :)
