Wow, Hazmick! You went into Cyrodiil? You must be level 10 already! Holy Cow! There are at least 15 SkyShards in Cyrodiil that I was hoping to get one day, lol.

Yep biggrin.gif but even though you're allowed into Cyrodiil at level 10 the wildlife is level 12. It made for a very short and painful trip.

Oh - I don't know how it works on the console, but on the PC every Monday is update day for ESO. The updates take time to download depending on your internet provider service; so it is best to get on your ESO account early and just start the download (unfortunately it will not start without you activating it).

Activate it, then go off and do something else for about 15-30 minutes depending on how slow or fast your internet is. Then you can play. It will not let you play till the update is downloaded, but as soon as it is finished it is ready to play - nothing more needs to be done.

I forgot to mention how much I like the PS4s UI. The hot bar is actually a good idea, and it can be completely hidden if you like. Attribute bars can also be hidden. Talking to someone zooms in like Oblivion, but the world keeps going on in the background like Skyrim. Combat tells and the like can be disabled. I only wish the compass was positioned across the bottom instead of the top.

The thing I like the most is the two radial menus. One for hotkeyed items and one for emotes. Since console users dont (at this time) have a chat window, using an animation means going into the menu. Instead you can assign eight to your radial menu and use them very naturally.

That sounds really convenient! On the PC, you can move stuff around on the screen in the "Settings" menu - can't remember how, but Peregrine walked me through moving my map to the upper right instead of lower left. I came back to play and my son had moved it to the upper left, urk. Since it is his game, I have to leave it there, lol.

Awesome. We can go on adventures together. Is Jerric Daggerfall Covenant?

Hes Ebonheart Pact, but I can make a new him in Daggerfall if you want to play. I got the Imperial Edition so he could be a Nord anywhere.

So I checked around and it seems that PSN ids and Xbox gamertags are displayed instead of character names by design. This is a really, really horrible decision in my opinion. I can see where that makes it easier for players to find players, but Im interested in characters. So hello there, xSwagMastr_666x. Shall we adventure together? Ugh.

That's a horrible design. So instead of Sandor Castius they'll get my PSN?


Meh.

Hmm. That's fine. I plan on making a khajiit, too. I'll join the Ebonheart pack with him.

Yes. Its pretty bad. And sometimes very funny. Not at all roleplay enhancing.

I wish the PC game could see the console players too! I'd love to meet up and game play with everyone here!

First impressions after taking Buffy to level 5 as a no-melee nightblade, then starting her over as a no-melee conjure sorc. Bow and stealth big time of course.

The game is beautiful and has a wonderful feel. I adore the music as it flow freely from Morrowind, Oblivion and Skyrim. Combat feels very neat but Buffy's slow skirmish thinking/tendency to panic up close combine with my old slow fingers to make the inability to pause challenging - a manageable challenge though. I am struck (after Skyrim) that ranged combat is restricted to such a tiny distance of what seems like not much more than 100 feet or so and that shooting from stealth gets you instantly detected 100% of the time.

Buffy has always relied on illusion and/or conjuration to back up her bow. The nightblade magicks seem somewhat similar to illusion and, given the short combat ranges and quick reflexes required were both challenging and not fun. Summons (from the sorc class) are working ever so much better in this short range/quick paced environment. Max bow range makes a joke out of the concept of sniping so Buffy is having to become a skirmish archer. A summon gives her the flexibility to do that, allowing her to maneuver to keep the summon engaged while shooting continuously and resummoning or casting support spells as needed. So far so good.

I've had zero concerns (playing solo) about other players. I also am finding no problems leaving the game when I need to by logging out. The lack of ability to save or pause takes some adjustment but even that is proving workable. I love that the game belongs on the server and is not reliant upon me trying to maintain a carefully cobbled together collection of support utilities and mods.

Overall, this game is quickly passing muster and I'm delighted with it.

I am not sure where to put this, so I figured this was as good a place as any.

Is The Crypt of Hearts in ESO? I mean as a place you can go into and explore? If so, I am curious about what it is like. I mean like the architecture, layout, if there is anything unique about it, and so on...

It's a group dungeon I believe.

EDIT: Here http://www.uesp.net/wiki/Online:Crypt_of_Hearts
I'll have Haa-Rei poke his head in and see if we can grab some screenies the next time I'm online.
