    Well, I can say I'm hooked... the little Nord has already gone a long way.



    Sorry, hiding character name not because of the ESO community, but because I enjoy my names, they are original, and I don't want some forum troll to ninja them in new games just to be an ass ;)

    And yeah, I got the Explorer title !!! *happy dance*
    Only 100 more CP and you too can get permanent gear and monster shoulder/head sets :)

    Glad you're enjoying it.

    Hi, I'm thinking about giving ESO a new try, back then at release I was disgusted by some commercial practices for this game.
    So here are a few questions that I hope will get honest answers:

    1) Can you now play an Imperial without buying something special? Are there still races/classes locked behind a purchase, and even worse, one you can't get anymore today?
    2) Do you still need to inject money into the cash shop if you choose to pay a subscription (aka "ESO PLUS") or does the subscription provide everything you need as it should be?
    3) Would you recommend the Morrowind "Digital Collector" or is the normal version more worth it ? Money isn't a problem, but I want to know if the bonuses are worth the price difference.

    Subsidiary question, as a heavy armor wearing melee player, (think "Death Knight" in WoW, or "Warrior" in Guild Wars 2), what would I be more happy with, Dragon Knight or Templar? I'm more Warrior than Paladin usually.

    Thanks!
    1. Imperial still need separate purchase, IMperial edition or Imperial Upgrade. There is warden locked behind morrowind expansion. 
    2. Base game without subscription provide everything you need. ESO+ (sub) give you each dlc as long as you pay for it (morrowind is not a dlc and therefore excluded from this), crafting bag (unlimited space for crafting mats, shared across all characters on account), 2x bank space and bonuses like 10% more xp. 
    3. No, they are not worth it in my opinion. 

    Dragon Knight. 

    Pleasure.

    Share your gear, trait, and skill bar and any tips if you're comfortable. I know some people like to keep their character build "secret sauce" and all. It's always interesting to get ideas and see what works for others.

    Maybe you could edit and message him so his intent can remain intact instead of broadcasting what he'd hoped would remain private.

    While I no longer play ESO, here's my $0.02.

    1. Don't install the game via Steam. Steam installs both the PC and Mac clients regardless of which operating system you use. If you delete one of the folders, it will just reinstall it next time. Use the installer from Zen's site and shave off about 20-30 gigs.

    2. Get Minion, an easy add-on manager. Like all TES games, you'll need to mod the shit out of it to make it tolerable.

    Enjoy!

    I'm still building up some skills and balancing, I didn't have enough survivability in melee. I think I don't lack DOTs, even though Bow gives me that plenty, but I'm not very good at AOE so I'm going to level up some skills for that too.

    And I don't have any "secret sauce", even though none of the builds I found on the net were totally satisfying to me so I'm improvising.

    Right now on the 2H bar I have:
    Wrecking Blow, Green Dragon Blood, Momentum (upgrading soon, that's a super skill), Brawler and Executioner, ultimate Ferocious Leap.

    This basically makes me a 2H tank, I faceroll public dungeons now. I easily solo Dark Anchors too, even though I'm not the fastest. World bosses are a bit harder...

    And on the bow bar:
    Draining Shot, Poison Injection, Lethal Arrow, Acid Spray, Endless Hail, ultimate Rapid Fire.

    I definitely have to get some class skills on the bow bar to use that Maginka, but I'm working on it. Dark Talons are going there soon (after the damned weekly downtime).

    Still a lot of work to do on the bow bar, and I'm getting the guild skills too to mix into that. I also need some kind of gap closer, I have that chain skill maxed out that I can drag onto the bar if needed.

    The best AOE skill you can get for Stamina builds is Caltrops from the PVP Assault line. It's even more useful in PVE than PVP because mob packs don't move out of the AOE.

    Aye I've read about Caltrops thanks. I'll have to work on that too.

    Linked the build in the post above yours, I can't remember all the other skills for now, and the game is down for maintenance.

    Before I enhanced my 2H bar, I was doing hard stuff with mostly with the bow... draining shot is fabulous for survivability too.

    Ah yes the weekly 6 hour downtime. Must suck especially for the EU.

    Stamina DKs are not really my forte. I do have one at CP 650 but I leveled him literally years ago - he was my 2nd ever character back in 2014. These days he just chills in Craglorn and cooks my food.

    As I've said other times I really lean toward magicka builds since the Morrowind update and its sustain nerf because I find them so much easier to weave heavy attacks with either lightning or resto staves. You really do need to HA for sustain especially in long dungeon boss fights and I find doing it with other weapons awkward.

    The only 2 Stamina classes I play semi-regularly now are my Sorc and Warden.

    It's probably easier for you because you only started playing after Morrowind so you didn't get spoiled by 3 years of virtually unlimited stamina or magicka like we did

    Critical charge (2H ability) is a good gap closer. I often also use burning talons and venomous claw when I play stam DK.

    I also noticed you don't have an armor debuff skill, maybe consider noxious breath (the stamina morph of fiery breath), its an aoe that applies a poison dot and lowers the enemy's physical resistance.

    Can't deny that I love One Tamriel :)
    I also have the "Explorer" Title.

    To me, the game is on par with GW2 for the title of best MMO released since WoW in 2004. Maybe even a bit ahead, since I like the setting more than the sometimes too "asian" one of GW2.

    you can make any class a Warrior type.  I am wearing Heavy on my Warden and having lots of fun. the best thing about ESO is that you can get really creative with the different classes.
    Just don't think about doing group content if you don't have a cookie cutter build. The group content in this game is controlled by mmo elitist. But if you want to play ESO like a single player TES game you can make any crazy build you like and have a blast with it.

    That didn't take you long. You've been playing the crap out of this haven't you? :)
    Can't deny that I love One Tamriel :)
    I also have the "Explorer" Title.

    To me, the game is on par with GW2 for the title of best MMO released since WoW in 2004. Maybe even a bit ahead, since I like the setting more than the sometimes too "asian" one of GW2.
    It has an atmosphere to it that most my other games don't quite pull off to the same degree. The closest too after it are SWTOR and LotRO, but they don't have the same engaging class play and a lot of other details that ESO offers. I totally agree it's by the most rock solid MMO experience since WoW, for me at least.

    Liked the game up to Tamriel One.  I hate level scaling.

    It seems like a polarizing feature that people either really like or dislike. I love it. For me it's core to making an MMO feel more like a virtual world. I like the oldschool design too, but in many ways it feels more constrictive and gamey to me. If only Secret World Legends would adopt scaling like ESO.

    When the basic squirrel levels to your supposedly super power level that is not a virtual world.
