Khajiit does not play PvP so he plays whatever kind of character he wants. If a character can perform his/her role sufficiently in the rare dungeon romp, then that’s good enough for this one.


Same, tbh. I'm going to keep doing what I want regardless of the changes. Helped by the fact that I don't do any harder content, ever. This sort of thing will always be messy, regardless if it's an MMO or not. (especially if it isn't an mmo lol)

As a storyteller, I've always been about character conflicts - a toon choosing a path not typical of her race or class or size or whatever (even gender).

Like Julian studying Magic and joining the Mages Guild in spite of the Redguard's traditional distaste for magic (but not spirituality, which is somewhat different, though difficult to define . . . ) as I'm sure you recall from her Oblivion days.

And I am having tremendous fun playing my little Bosmer with a sword and board, even though her racial passives say she should be better with DW/bow or whatever the TESO lore says. And my Orc Maz is a surprisingly effective healer, though not on the same scale as Acadian's Dame Buffy.

It is in those conflicts that great stories lie, IMHO. So whatever ZOS does with racial passives, I don't care. I will continue playing my crew the way they want to play.

Baron Loredas is a Redguard and he’s a Necromancer! Well technically he’s a lvl 3 Sorc bank mule atm, but we’ve been waiting to level him in case they ever decided to make a Necro class. He’ll soon get his chance to start for real!

My issue with putting combat elements in the racial passives is that inevitably they will change for the purpose of balance. To me the character’s race is what they are, not who they are. Who they are will evolve, so the game design changes are easier to absorb as a natural part of their life. Changing what they are makes no sense to me.

I guess we have one more Mayhem morning to collect tickets? Jerric has a quest ready to turn in, so hopefully that will work. I’ve enjoyed this festival way more than I would have thought, and would not have joined in if not for the tickets.

I want to try the Necromancer class but I have no ideas yet, which is a very strange feeling! I’ll have to buy a character slot unless Lleduri agrees to bow out. I thought about making her a vampire, but I’m just not interested enough to put the time in. It’s a tough call because she has amassed a great wardrobe. tongue.gif

Wow, that new wolfhound is pretty close to how Ulfe looks. Woo! I see some outfits I like, too. Thanks for posting this, DE!

The wolfhound does look awesome! We also get a new Arena house. I’ll stick to my three homes since it’s just too overwhelmingly to have more. But this house looks awesome! Hehe amusing that it’s an arena built by a man called Lycus tongue.gif

Elinhir Private Arena


Pit Fighting promoter Crottus “Thumbs-Down” Lycus built this private arena atop the haunted ruins of Molavar because the land was cheap, and what could go wrong? He vanished mysteriously some time ago, and now his unique Arena Home is back on the market. This remarkable home includes levers that activate various environmental hazards in the middle of the arena. These hazards include lightning, fire blasts and spinning blades, each with their own distinct properties and behaviors.

Looks great, but something about that translation doesn't seem like it came from ESO. They have spelling errors of their own products; and talk about getting their information from Data-mining. Still, the Arena really looks interesting!

How can you pass it up if it is named Lycus and is an Arena? That is like fate!!!! Someone read your story and loved it is my guess!

Yeesh, isn't this the first time we see Namira in ESO? I wonder if it's just for completion or because she's gonna be relevant soon.

Anyways, Wrathstone is on the PTS and the preview is up. As well as patch notes.

tbh the things I'm most interested in are the writ changes (particularly the material crates) the updated Jester's Festival, and the prologue quest(s) for Elsweyr. I'm glad they reference Numidium being stationed in the Halls of Colossus
