What kind of Content would you like to see as an Expansion in ESO as an ES fan?

fistormfistorm Smalltown, WIPosts: 836Member Common

I'm curious what kind of Expansions this game will have for its future.    So looking forward to all the ideas ahead for types of expansions and content you would like to see in this game from an Elder Scrolls viewpoint.

 

Would you like to see an Empire City zone that's part of a future Elder scrolls timeline.   Would you like to see them put in a future SKYRIM that is the actual  Dragon Born Timeline  that overlaps these current zones?    How about a NEW continent, any ideas of what another continent would look like?     Perhaps Secunda and Masser in the Nirn SKY as a RAID area?     More Daedric Princes Areas and storylines?    Where you get to Raid Each Daedric Prince at the end of them?

 

The amount of ideas is limitless,  try to put in a timeline or lore or zone or housing,  or even MODS that you would like to see as an expansion!    I think mine would have to be a Future Cyrodiil after the war, and having housing in it, being able to see the streets below from your balcony and a fully functioning city with the new emperor after the war.

 

Don't know the lore of ES games?  START HERE!  http://elderscrolls.wikia.com/wiki/Lore  a good Keyword to start on is "Nirn"

    Maybe underwater areas to explore where you need water breathing potions or be a argonian or you drown (heavy DoT) after a while

     

    Housing would be cool even if it was just a instanced room in one of the main cities of the game.

    I agree. I would also like to see them add some random events to the world that are not quest based and make it feel more alive to supplemental the fantastic PVE questing you already have.

    There Is Always Hope!

    They seem to have this in here already.   If you look at this video here, at minute 6:07    you can see that you come up to a village and an event is already happening, so randomized events will be in the game.

     

    http://www.elderscrollsonline.com/en/media/videos/411 minute 6:07  shows you the types of random events you will encounter.   This was an early video, so you can bet there is probably a TON more of these they put in,  SKYRIM had these a lot when you would walk through the wilds and some person would come up to you and talk when you neared a point of instrest, or when a dragon would swoop out of nowhere.   All random events that will be in ESO.

    Why would you assume that is random and that it doesn't just happen to everyone as they approach the village for the first time?

    I haven't seen any information about any kind of randomly occurring or dynamic events. other than the PvP stuff.

    I would definitely not like any cameo appearances from the other games just to have cameos, no thanks.

    A good expansion always builds inward as much as it builds outward imo. So by that I mean making the combat and general experience better or actually changing the existing game world over the course of the expansion.

    Aside from that, Daedric planes do seem like a good idea. Except some of them have been quite boring in previous TES games.

    Feel free to use my referral link for SW:TOR if you want to test out the game. You'll get some special unlocks!

    A beta walkthrough somewhere explained there were already Daedric/Oblivion planes in the game. You even start in one:

    I haven't seen any information about any kind of randomly occurring or dynamic events. other than the PvP stuff.

    Then you haven't been paying attention at all.  They already announced there will be RIFT-esque dynamic events where Molag Bol(sp?) will drop his 'dark anchors' down in an attempt to pull the mortal world into his daedric plane.  I'm not sure how similar it is to the RIFT system after that, but it is definitely in the game.  Not much is known about server wide events though, as far as I know.

    Actually, they haven't said whether or not the Molag Bol events are random, scripted or dynamic. They haven't even said if they will be reoccurring.. like they might only happen a single time during certain quests, once the quest is completed your character might not see them in that place again.

    EDIT: I'm wrong according to the wiki: Dark Anchors

    Yes I know :D

    But aside from that, I mean if they wonna put in complete new expansion zones, they could do it in one of those planes. Except that some of those zones were not that great in previous games, like the Soul Cairn for example (boring as hell imo).

    Perhaps it would be interesting to explore some locations outside Tamriel that have never been touched on, like Thras and the Sload or Akavir.

    Wouldn't mind having oblivion gates in 50+ and 50++ zones as dynamic events :3

    Not only that.. Including invasions...

    and 50 +++ zones coop zones the same for all 3 factions where players have choice of a PvE, faction PvP, ffa PvP versions... With many dynamic events, where players could join both or all sides of these evnets... But all in all the zones should still be quest/ story driven..

     

    and many many more important factions added, with new skilltrees...   Not only those allready announced to be added but also

    - necromancy

    - divine trees

    - mellee fighting styles

    and many many more...

    I would like Zenimax to add content in Black Marsh and unlock other areas not available at launch, let players select any race regardless of faction and add more hair options (the ones that move specifically), and be able to summon ghosts and skeletons a la Morrowind.

     

  • RhazmuzRhazmuz Posts: 208Member Uncommon

    Personally I dont really want new timelines or anything, I like if everything is kept cohesive.

    What I would like is new kinds of skill lines and maybe also classes. Could also be like advanced classes, where you can evolve your primary class into a more advanced class, with a new skill line based on your choice.

    I would of course also like new areas to explore.

    More adventure zones.

    More dungeons.

    More reasons/system to incentivize exploration

    More ways to progress my character

    Maybe some kind of guild vs guild warfare, in more limited areas. Think Sieges in AoC, only working and perhaps with more things going on around it. Not sure if this is needed/usefull, given the whole Cyrodil thing going on, might satisfy the needs for this kind of gameplay.

    More weapon types.

    More mount variants

  • goboygogoboygo Posts: 790Member Uncommon
    An open world faction based PvP server where every zone but the starter areas of the game are contested.   That would be a good start.

    You know a game doesnt have a lot going for it at release when these things are already being put out there.

    Please provide evidence for future content being the number one thing people are saying about the game.. Its mentioned as a possible benefit to the game being p2p, but we will have to see if they deliver on it. 

     

    the rest is just pure trolling, this is a internet forum, of course people will discuss various things related to the game, including how they will handle post launch.

    Actually one of those stupid "10 ten best things" columns had future content as the number thing about ESO. As did some poll at one of the fan sites. Plus it is also a focuc on more than one of the developers logs as well as their 'ask us anything' video blogs.

     

    And how many topics here about it? At least 2 on the front page and active right now. Not to mention the ones that have slipped by.

     

    Basicvally more people are tlaking abut what is coming after the game is released than what it has AT release. 

     

    The only thing theyre talking about now is PvP. At least 'officially'.

    Well setting aside the cross faction thing (maybe too hot a topic with some people).  I like those ideas, I hope the include a lot of customization options for Argonians and Khajit.  Sometimes they get a little hosed in some games... or maybe I just wasn't feeling any of the options that I had in the previous games when I did make one or the other..

    As far as what I'd like them to add? new areas with elaborate dungeons to explore. Or just dungeons/mines/caves to explore whose only existence wasn't because of some quest.

    The wood elf homeland. I heard they live in treehouses. It would be cool to travel between vast networks of tall trees.

    Oblivion gates.

    More Akaviri.

    Ayleid ruins and or dungeon.

    Dragon taming?

    Chocobos?

    I think that's it... maybe...

    Other than the various Daedric Princes, there aren't a lot of characters who possibly could do cameos, unless the game includes either time travel to the future, or time travelers from the future.

    dark brotherhood and thieves guild for sure. i would also like to see dragons in the game at some point.

    dragons in cyrodiil dive bombing large raids during a siege would be epic IMO.

  • VannorVannor YorkshirePosts: 2,970Member Uncommon

    A lot of people mentioning Dragons...

    If there were Dragons in ESO wouldn't it totally ruin the lore set in Skyrim? They were killed off by the Akaviri and resurrected by Alduin in Skyrim. There were very few living Dragons at the time ESO takes place, something like 4 of them. Of course, Oblivion planes are another matter.. but they wouldn't really be dragons if they existed on a plane..

  • EntinerintEntinerint brooklyn, NYPosts: 843Member Uncommon

    As a TES fan I would like to see the following in an expansion:

    1.  A defection quest and the option to be neutral in the war and travel anywhere but Cyrodiil.

    2.  Actual real-time combat with CD and Friendly-Fire (say, a hardcore version of Cyro Campaigns with FF on).

    3.  Crossbows.

    4.  Spears.

    5.  Cloaks.

    6. Mounts that are treated more like pets, not just travel objects that disappear when you're not on them.

    7. Vvardenfell.

    8. More Black marsh.

    9. More Elsweyr.

    10. Mainland Summerset.

    11. Bard system like LOTRO.

    12. Option to flag yourself for OPvP in PvE areas (dependent on #1).

    13.  Robust crime and punishment system with player bounties.  This will likely be coming with the Thieves Guild.

    14.  Dueling.

    15.  An Arena (not like WoW, like TES).

    16. Underwater swimming /exploration (NOT underwater questing)
