    The question & answer about Serana was kinda odd. What does “probably not” mean? If she’s been trapped in a coffin since the First Era, then surely that’s a definite no, rather than ‘probably not’. They also spelled Dimhollow Crypt as “Dimhollow Cavern”.  Does this mean the area we saw in Dawnguard was part of a larger cavern? Perhaps I’m just reading too much into one answer to make up for the lack of info I got from this Q&A.

    @Alinor ZOS has sucked with their info schedule lately. I agree.

    Disapointing Q&A… They are mostly choosing the questions which are easy to answer… pick more interresting questions zos.

    The question about kill-stealing seemed really wierd to me, I have never experienced KSing as a big problem in mmos..

    That makes sense. I guess there’s always the possibility of a time-traveling quest in which players meet Serana, or ZOS could pull a retcon where Serana does wake up for a time, but then she goes back into her coffin and loses her memory somehow. Either way, it keeps ZOS’s options open in case they decide to bring her character into ESO.

    So there might not have been anything that interesting but I was happy to see confirmation of what the exact naming restrictions are:

    I remember you guys saying that you can have both a first name and a surname. Will you also take into consideration allowing a fixed list of prepositions or middle names, or do you think it’s too much? Characters like Mjoll the Lioness and Argonians have multi-word names. – Phane

    You can use more than one space in your character name, so the examples you picked are all viable. In fact, the current limit is a maximum of four hyphens, apostrophes, or spaces in total, so you can come up with all kinds of names, like Nh’yen the Ter-Grol. This should be especially convenient for players who want lore-based names for their Argonian or Khajiit!

    4 Hyphens, Apostrophes or Spaces in total. So their example “Nh’yen the Ter-Grol” is acceptable as it has 1 apostrophe, 1 hyphen and 2 spaces, but “Nh’yen of the Ter-Grol” would be unacceptable as it has 1 apostrophe, 1 hyphen and 3 spaces; taking it over the ‘4 punctuations’ limit.

    How many Nh’yen the Ter-Grol will be seeing in game for undecided naming players? xD

     

    I’m wondering myself, why cyrondill is all taken by the 3 factions since the start of every campaing. A lot of months ago, I was sure I heard first the keeps and resources will be guarded by cyrodillians npcs.

    @Deftknight  –  I too am glad they have a robust naming system for the game. My main character requires a couple punctuations for his name and having just a First Name/Surname system would have made that impossible. I’m happy they have implemented this for any lore junkies out there. :)

    I like the naming system. I hope they set the character limit high so we can get creative.

    Unless you can find a source for that, it’s probably not true. However, we do know that Imperial NPC’s in towns are neutral towards players, regardless of their Alliance.

    Intresting to hear that all keeps are already in control by the faction,meaning they wont have to be controled by a guild as a standard

    I’m a bit disappointed with this article, but at least we know the naming system won’t be limited only to first and surname, which considering I like to play around with character creation has been a concern of mine.  It’s also good for people who like to use lore friendly names and role play.

    I am really upset by the fact I can’t name my character ‘ -. Those three spaces are integral to her name! I will have to look into EQ Next it seems…

    Yep, maybe a missunderstanding from me part until I heard now officially the contrary. I guess we give some things for granted sometimes without knowing nothing…

    It’s good to hear that we’ll have some freedom with the naming system. I mean, it only sticks with TES tradition. This game seems like it’s gearing up to be one of (if not the) most customizable mmo’s out there. I’m wondering, though, how much brain-hurting nonsense names like “Ujd’giee-dk- Jfu” we’ll see.

    Considering there is only one server, names are going to have to be pretty unique in order for players not to step on eachothers toes when creating their characters, so its good they are allowing for the flexability, the one problem i have with a system like this is that it becomes increasingly easy to create lore/ immersion/ innapropriate names if you can freely mix in spaces, hyphens and apostrophes. I’m not looking forward to seeing F’cks-ur-mom on the battlefield anytime soon :/

    The Dragon Army will conquer all!
