    Well, I gave in and just bought the Morrowind Collector along with a recurring subscription.
    I'm going for Dragon Knight first, sounds like the closest to what I enjoy playing. Never said I wanted a "clone" of a death knight.
    If it gives me 6+ months of fun, it'll be a win.

    What really pushed me past the threshold is that VorpX supports ESO on VR headsets with full headtracking. That's a nice bonus to me, can't wait to try that out.
    That I didn't know.  I may have to dust off the old DK2 and give it a shot.  Does anyone have experience playing ESO with a controller? 

    I just picked ESO up again in the last day or so.  I hated the game the first 4 times I tried to play it, but it might actually stick this time.  I wandered around right after I left the newbie island and found myself doing the dark brotherhood quest line.  I'm having tons of fun int he game now.  Like enough to ignore the crappy auction system for once.  I hope you enjoy ESO, OP.  It really does have a lot to offer, and I finally get why One Tamriel was so well received.

    Back in beta and at release, the game didn't "catch" me.
    I've recently read about the changes the game went through, and some posters here I trust (there aren't many) seemed to enjoy the game a lot. This encouraged me to try it again, since I wanted to find a new "AAA" MMORPG to play for a change.

    I agree with you about the guild vendors, that systems sucks donkey balls, and only promotes the creating of big, lifeless guilds only used for the vendors. ESO with an auction house would be better and avoid a lot of useless hassle, and also some blatant exploitation from some trading guilds.

    There are a lot of hardcore ESO fans that will defend the lack of an AH to the death as a "feature." I think it sucks too and they should have at least zone based auction houses.

    "Hardcore" fans tend to defend the most stupid mechanics, we've seen that a lot during the whole MMORPG genre history. FFA Full loot PvP with no restriction or consequences for instance... in the name of "freedom".

    Agreed.  But then, at least in those full loot games, there's something for those that enjoy that experience.  It seems to me that the guild based trading in ESO was poorly thought out.  I get they wanted to limit market manipulation, but being in multiple trading guilds makes that even worse.  If I'm not mistaken, there were no guild traders at launch.  You had to be in the guild to buy AND sell.  It was obviously broken, and even then you had people defending the system.  The cap to guild sizes further hampers this.  There used to be a waiting list to get into the larger guilds.  Don't know if that's still the case.

    I've pretty much given up on it ever changing, and it will, unfortunately, just remain the one thing I hate about the game.  I think Zenimax could change the system to at least make it more accessible.  Gear drops easily enough from quest rewards and dungeon drops, but I've largely ignored crafting except for research so far.  I can't understand why people defend this system as is.  Even a small change, like localizing vendors in the capital cities instead of spread out all over the world, would make it tolerable.  As is though?  No thanks, I'll just level crafting instead of traipsing all over Tamriel looking for a chest piece.  Iselin is right, though, complaining about it on the official forums is almost as bad as complaining about FFA PvP in the Darkfall forums.

    I can understand the appeal of the guild based trading system; in theory it adds another layer of depth. In practice I find it inconvenient and it does add another barrier to entry.

    In relation to that, here is a site that shows the prices of items in all the guild vendors, which I have found really helpful: https://us.tamrieltradecentre.com/pc/Trade

    Yeah I use their add-on for setting my prices when I sell. I like it better than Master Merchant because it's much leaner and up to the minute with pricing.

    By the way, that addon has been discontinued 2 years ago... but there's the same feature in the addon "Destinations".

    Which add-on are you talking about that has been discontinued? Not the TTC one. That's current and was last updated August 14, 2017.

    BTW, if you're going to get and use some addons, I highly recommend Minion, the ESOUI addon installer and updater: https://www.minion.gg/

    Totally my bad, I confused two discussions.
    It's an addon tracking dungeon bosses which is obsolete.

    Sorry :)

    PS: and yes, I'm using Minion.

    Thanks to this thread (or maybe another on this site) that I learned about add-ons.  Now, if only WinZip hadn't blown up at me and demanded money, I'd have actively installed a few.  I'm really not anxious to spend $50 on a utility needed to open a file needed to enhance a game.  I haven't used WinZip since 2004, when I had more need for it.

    Does anyone have recommendations for add-ons that don't require WinZip?

    Logic, my dear, merely enables one to be wrong with great authority.

    I did have that problem with the Curse client. It was riddled with outdated addons and no way to know unless you researched each addon. I'm trying the Minion client, but I hate managing multiple addon clients.

    Minion does all the installing for you without need of anything else and it's an executable itself so no winzip needed to install it either.

    BTW, 7-zip is also a good unzipper and it's free open source.

    I've been wondering about giving it a try again myself.

    I have the original base game, it's a shame you can't upgrade to the gold edition especially as when that's on sale it's like half the price I paid without any DLC.

    I heard they'd made the whole game independent of level now, that it scales. Is that true for Morrowind or is it a new level cap?

    The level cap is 50 but after that you accumulate Champion Points that work like the similar thing in Diablo3 and are account wide. All the mobs everywhere are set to level 50 / CP 160 and if you are below that, you get scaled to that level. The current CP max is 660 and they add to that by 30 points 3 or 4 times per year. The absolute CP max the system has is CP 3600 so it'll be a few years before that cap is useable.

    The max gear is currently CP 160 and has been that way for quite a while with no immediate plans of raising it. 


    When you come to a fork on the road, take it.
    You can observe a lot by just watching.
    No one goes there nowadays, it's too crowded.

    It's been a very long time since I needed a zip utility.  Not something I try to keep up-to-date on anymore.
    If you use windows 10, right click on the file and choose "extract all", no additional program needed. Pretty sure windows has done this for a long time for standard zip files.

    There are some issues with file permissions sometimes when using the built in unzip of windows. That's why we are always using 7zip at work and not that built in tool.

    Found a new hobby in game: getting the "Explorer" title!
    Took me quite a few hours, but I already did all the Cyrodiil and Pact ones.
    The amount and variety of dungeons in this game is impressive. Changes from the usual copy/paste caves of other games. There's an amount of world building work done in ESO which surpasses most if not all other MMORPGs.
