As I think about Elder Scrolls Online: Elsweyr and the cat-like Khajiit, I wonder what the random Tamriel adventurer would want to pack for the trip. I’ve come up with a few fun ideas.

Read the full story here

    You have been going to too many cosplay conventions. :)


    ESO is a good new home it served me well for nearly 3 years and I am sorely tempted to go back. Maybe when they have the next big sale.

    Who knew Suzie was  a meme lord...




    But yes I have returned to ESO for the first time since launch and stuck somewhere between loving the game and being bored to tears.... It is scratching that MMO itch though. I did sub for the bag space but holding off on the current xpac, will see if i make it past a month first

    I guess I am not too terribly sad about her passing -- I mean...she is immortal thanks to tens of thousands of memes. The rest of us won't be able to say the same when we go. 

    The Khajiit are proud of that lil Grump. <3

    "Good animations" is something they could bring to the game too.

    Combat is terrible but Zenimax could not care less as long as people give them money for overpriced cash shop items, mediocre at best expansions for full game price, DLCs, subscription and lootboxes.
    I guess only some kind of season pass is missing. Seriously ESO is the most overrated MMO on market.

    The game was unplayable for me right after launch and I didn't touch it for about six or seven months.  They've come a long way.  With other mmo's starting to force mini-maxing and redoing limited content an obscene amount of times I'm starting to play ESO more often, if only for the variety of choice offered.

    Every time I get into the game I get dragged away by something else... There's a lot there to like I know. I wish the combat was different. I can't believe I like LOTRO's more than ESO's.

    I'm sure I'll be back! I just get bored playing alone, and I can't keep up with the friends that do play games, because they don't have kids/adulting.

    Gut ouT!

    What, me worry?

    Great game if you only plan to play casually and never look below the surface. Once you open the hood you find the threads detailing 50+ bugs that have been present for years, old bugs that pop back up with new patches years later, the worst server performance ever 5+ years after launch, shallow and easy gameplay designed to be accompanied by re-skinned microtransactions through their cash shop and lootboxes.

    Meanwhile, you'll find there's some bottom of the barrel level community-developer communication on these issues and more. It's the Elder Scrolls cash cow till Bethesda get's around to making ES6, nothing more. With ZOS announcing their plans recently to make two other games, you can expect more and more dev's pulled off of ESO.

    Played the game for almost 3 years exclusively, can't find it in myself to go back. I found the questing tedious at best, never did finish a zone from Vvardenfell on. I know One Tamriel did a lot of great things for folks, but it made the overland map very mundane. Between One Tamriel and Tamriel Trade Center, the game I enjoyed was just broke. I'm sure lots of folks enjoy both of those, as Arya said, "It's not me." Maybe one day I will return. /shrug

    Things to take in to ESO?

    Might I suggest a semi-competent dev team?
  • SBFordSBFord Former Associate EditorMember LegendaryPosts: 33,126
    Y'all sure know how to bring down a fun article. Happy Friday to you too. Geez.

    I will play ESO casually and will love every minute.

    Just need mudballs and shade to throw at the dumb cats all day. Then go back with a backpack to explore the next day. The haters can hate, but the game is great.

    For me, I don't find "all quests" tedious but the idea that the entire experience is just questafterquestafterquestafterquest ad infinitum is just tiring.

    I played off and on as well since beta. My highest toon is only 44 but I'm prepared to roll a Necro as well Monday! I've stayed sub for quite a while due to infinite crafting bag (I enjoy picking up everything too much).

    I have been back in ESO for 7 or 8 months or so. Having a blast. So much better the World of Repcraft.

    The article was fun (though still sad news for Grumpy Cat). ESO has been my main MMO for quite a while now. What's not to look forward to with a Khajit expansion and Necromancer class to boot? Especially if you're a cat aficionado anyway! I understand constructive criticism from players, but I often wonder what game do those who mainly post criticisms play? Different strokes for different folks, but hard to argue with a heavily populated game that people are having fun with! I'll see lots of other people in Elsweyr soon most of which no doubt will be Khajiti Necromancers, lol.

    you might not like what i want to say but... they really should bring up something closer to "classic" auction house or some central merchant network, current system is terrible... oh and don't get me started on "Animation Canceling / Weaving" how it's core of game...

    I am a big fan of Skyrim and of course my character is a Khajit. The biggest a downer about the release of the Elsweyr addition is that my laptop is too old to run the game and I only own a PS3. It will likely be a couple of years before I can play. This makes Khajit sad.

    It's really easy to breakup questing and do other things. Exploration mapping. Dungeon runs. Thieving and assassination sprees. A lot of the quests are really well done.
