It makes me think that everyone got extra shields, staves etc. and there's probably one piece that nobody has. But at eight of fourteen, it's hard to tell which of the uncollected six it would be.


Today I found out that it's pretty mixed. This morning I found someone offering Bows for various motifs, one of them being Shields (but i decided I wanted to do as many writs as possible that morning so I ignored it). Later I got Legs from someone for the Shields, instead. I already have legs, but I figure they're a better bargaining piece. Probably. Especially since I haven't gotten Chests yet. I find it unlikely that things like belts and shoulders would be that rare, yet I haven't seen a single one. :v

In all honesty, though, I'm happy having SOMETHING, so that I can either trade or sell, even if it means paying extra to get what I want. I'm just exhausted. not as bad as last year but close.



So as Lucius quickly reaches level 50, I have to think about what he's gonna wear as an outfit. Since I'm not ready to make a set of cp160 armor yet and I don't think I'll ever be ready

I could have him wear something practical, as it's the type of person he seems to be, or I can get flashy before he's actually used.

I was thinking maybe recreating one of my recent Dragonborn? The gladiator aesthetic does suit his fighting style, and i'm just coming to the realization that they both actually share quite a few things in common, combat-wise. (Sword+Board and dual-wield, Fire, mix of metal and leather armor, Dragons. Actually that Dragonborn was Nibenese, so I think I may have subconsciously made Lucius' previous incarnation in Skyrim because I couldn't wait to finally put him in ESO. To my knowledge, Lucius wasn't an archeologist, though.)

Anyways, I can always just go and make him a Steel Imperial set for him to wear as an outfit. It'll most likely be the cheapest option.

Maybe a mix of OotH and Minotaur?

^Probably, yeah

I'm so Tired (I actually got a swords this morning. I've only ever gotten 2 motifs from regular dailies so I'm probably not doing them anymore)

Gah!

Worm Cult Motif completed, thanks to trades from a few people across Craglorn and Vvardenfell. Watch me get the pieces I was missing either tomorrow or Monday morning :T

But hey, it helped someone. Still have Helmets and Bows.

That aside, I wonder if I should take Lucius for Skyshard hunting in Bangkorai and The Rift. He's at level 48 and I'd have to have to farm more materials for the last 2 days of the event. I know Fjotreid desperately needs skill points but the only place left for him is Craglorn.

Welp, thanks to an unexpected generous deposit from our government, I was finally able to replace my 10 year old beast with a new computer. It’s a desktop with a 5K display and double the video RAM of my old computer. While it has only 8 GBs of RAM, I’m comfortable with it at this time, and I know I can always add more down the road. Likewise, the graphics can not be swapped out in this model, but it CAN support eGPU’s, which means I can hook up some seriously powerful GPUs and run the crap out of this 5K display . . .

Anyway, I finally got ESO loaded up, my game files transferred over from the old computer, and — damn.

Been running ESO at medium graphics with the view distance set to 36. Not happy with the fog, especially from one of the myriad vantage points you come across in this game. But putting this game up to ultra high puts the view distance at 100, and man oh man, it is gorgeous. And smooth. Unbelievably so. And I now have God Rays and DOF, things I had been accustomed to in Skyrim.

So far in the short time I”be been playing ESO on this new computer, I’m very pleased with my purchase.
