The ESO Alliance – Episode 3

eso-alliance-bannerWhats up ESO junkies? It’s time once again for us to assemble The ESO Alliance, a round-table podcast featuring the leaders of several Elder Scrolls Online communities. Your hosts are myself (Atropos) from Tamriel Foundry, Evarwyn from Elder Scrolls Off The Record, and Josh and Kyle from ShoddyCast.

We’ve got a full plate of material to discuss this week thanks to all the ESO news from this week. Join us this afternoon as we dig into the developer gameplay video, the ESRB “mature” label, the voice cast announcement, and more! You can catch the live show right here later today at 4pm PST / 7pm EST / midnight GMT.

In addition to our lively discussion we’ll be grabbing some questions from chat and from the comments, so if you have anything you’d like to see us tackle during the show let us know in the comment section below!

 

Watch the Replay!

    I’m going to try to watch this on my phone while I’m at work tonight.

     

    Also the fact that my guild conspiracy thread was locked is just further proof of the Pantropycaste AD conspiracy.

    My guild currently has almost 12,000 members…not all of us play the same game, but a large amount of us will be playing under the Ebonheart pact. My question is what is the current guild capacity? Guild reward system? Where would we find the guild bank/hall if there is such.

    The guild member cap is 300, and I seriously doubt you have 12,000 people ready to join yours.

    I would really like to hear more about how we will be able to customise armor(looks wise), and a bit about dailies(i made a reddit topic about common town folk dailies and it got really positive responses so i am wondering what your plans are on this kind of subject).

    The ability to pickpocket other players would be the most OP thing ever…

    As of right now I don’t believe you can.

    The Noore

    Any truth to the rumors that the “M” rating was a result of the Kajiit-style buildings in some zones?  I heard that the rating committee said “If you’re gonna put cat-houses in it, then the game has to be rated ‘Mature’…”  ;)

    Chat is moving a bit quickly so I’ll post here so it can be seen and answered if there’s time.

    My question is related to synergy abilities.  I played FFXI for several years and one of the highlights of that game in party gameplay was skill-chains.  A skill-chain is when you had built up enough TP (energy) to perform special weapon skills in sync with your other party members.  If player A did a certain weapon skill followed by player B using a different, but correct weapon skill in the next 3 seconds, the monster was dealt bonus damage while also giving him a weakness to elemental magic.  After the skill-chain went off by the first two players, a magic user in your party could cast elemental magic based on the weakness the skill-chain provided, causing an even greater bonus for working together.  This all had to be timed within 3 seconds of each action for the chain to occur.

    I know synergies do various abilities but are there any that take on this skill-chain concept or teamwork feature?

    Example would be a Nightblade performs Assassin Blade followed by a Templar using Piercing Javelin within 3 seconds.  The monster would take bonus damage and say also take a weakness to fire for the next 3 seconds.  A Dragonknight or Sorcerer could follow this up with a fire spell and do additional bonus damage if coordinated properly.

    It may not be needed for regular mobs but for mini bosses or dungeons, I think this would create dynamic teamwork incentives :)

    Thanks!

    MODS

    UI Mods are not UI overhauls installed locally on your PC like in previous TES games. They are called AddOns for a reason. AddOns are submitted to, and approved by Zenimax. You can only use an AddOn through the main UI after Zenimax has approved it. All AddOns will be available to all players, all the time. You just go to Settings and select one or more AddOns to use.

    GW2 Exploration

    You really cannot explore anywhere you want in GW2, like Shoddycast suggested. Your level scales down, it never scales up. So, you can’t even skip the first zone in which you are placed. You still have to complete that zone, or another newbie zone, before moving up to the next zone level range. And you cannot skip those either, to explore the next leveled set of zones. ETC.

    Sandbox

    To design a sandbox game, you cannot have levels. Levels inherently restrict access to exploration. This would require them to completely redesign the game, from Classes, to mobs, to zone content. TESO is designed to be a linear themepark. The starter islands are the first rides along those rails.

    EDIT:

    ESRB

    One of the main objects of TESO is to murder as many other players as is possible. Another object is to murder as many NPCs and mobs as is possible. I’m not sure how the ESRB could rate that as TEEN.
