    To avoid a thousand little threads that can be resolved with one post and source link, let’s just throw every question might you have in this thread and keep the forums clean for actual dicussions.

    How to use this thread:

    1. Try Google, Tamriel Foundry’s search function or have a look at our Development FAQ before you ask a question. Check the frequently asked questions further down as well. Otherwise we’ll have to answer the same question every other page.
    2. Answer other people’s question only if you you know the answer. Wrong or unclear answers will be removed. Try to provide a source.
    3. This is not a thread for discussion or smalltalk. Anything that isn’t a question, an answer or the opening post will be removed.

     

    Frequently asked questions (posts asking those questions will be deleted)

    • Racial Skills and Boni are confirmed to be in the game, but we don’t know what they will be yet.
    • Payment Model ESO will be subscription-based.
    • Spears and Crossbows will not be in the game at launch.
    • Dragons will not be in the game ever. Kinda. Don’t expect to see any.

    Is there any news on the system requirements of ESO? Specifically the amount of space in your hardrive for your PC will ESO require? Any speculation?

    Two questions:

     

    1.) Where on TamrielFoundry can I ask about modding or mod help, specifically with Skyrim?

    2.) If here is okay, why do my .DDS files have 2 versions of the Iron Helmet and which one do I change for a retexture?

    All we know is that it should work well on PCs from the last 5 years.

    1) This site is really for just Elder Scrolls Online, and gaming in general. Modding is at the back of everyones mind.

    2) I assume you know of the Skyrim Nexus? Try there.

    Get yours from Nodiatus, with a quick RPG quiz. They didn’t have ”Unthrappa Master”, but we can all settle for second best.

    Will there be any mods for ESO or not because it is an MMO?

    You will be able to modify basic UI. Nothing anywhere near the extent of Skyrim’s CK.

     

    @Frewdlum there is a magelight spell that is cast on self. It reveals sneaking and invisible enemies and it illuminates an area… however I don’t believe there is a ranged version of this Mage’s Guild ability.

    PvP takes place in the province of Cyrodiil.

    Only in Cyrodiil. The entire province is a 3 way RvRvR arena with full scale siege battles, mine raids, fort/ resource capture and CTF style gameplay utilizing Elderscrolls.

    So there is no open world PvP? I really though this would be a thing. They said recently in a announcement that you’ll be able to do all dungeons of other alliances as well. So you’re telling me I can’t attack players of other alliances outside of Cyrodiil? I just have to look at them menacingly?

    @Triplesteel When you get into the 50+ setting and get to go to the other alliances and do their quests they have said you will NOT be in the same setting as the enemy alliance players.  IE when you go there, you will most likely be playing only with people from your alliance

    @schnoffle That seems… Strange. Suppose it will be instanced then?

    I do like the not having LvL 50 Characters come rampaging through starting areas of other alliances. But at the same time I also like living in constant fear that someone is stalking the hell out of me.

    @triplesteel The thing I think they want in ESO is to get everyone focused on PvP in Cyrodiil to make it a viable part of the game.  If you open up the other alliance zones to opposing players for PvP then you get into the griefing of the game.  Then their “mega server” concept goes out the window cause you have to implement “Open PvP” servers vs non PvP servers for those that don’t want griefed, etc.  My guess is future zone releases may lead to more PvP zones, but that probably won’t be for a while

    Dude consolidate your posts.. It takes a good guild leader to set up a well run guild, highly organized with goals in mind. Set up activities for the guild, recruit good members, and keep it active..

      ”Our showdown, while inevitable, is premature. Although it would be the simplest thing for me to kill you right now, I won’t. You’d only become a martyr. Your nation would only rally behind your untimely demise. But I assure you, I have a plan. And I’m saving you for last. Then, you’ll get your duel, and I will destroy you…”

    I know this has been discussed somewhere before, but I am not sure where. I am trying to brainstorm on a build and can’t recall how many skill slots there will be available to use. I thought it was something like 5-7 for each primary and secondary weapon set. Additionally do weapon skills and class skills use the same slots? For example, if we have 5 skill slots to use, do I have to choose between weapon skills and class skills to place within those 5 slots?

    Structure. Organization. Dedication. Goals. Fun.

    @Galahad 6 skill slots, one being for an ultimate.  The other 5 are a combination of you class/weapon/other skills you have.  Choose wisely!

    Well shit, too many choices!! AHH! Thanks for the clarification.

    Do passives count towards the other 5?
