  • Player's Choice 2017 - The Best Overall MMO - MMORPG.com

    Logical victory of ESO.

    Another thing those who talk about "cookie cutter" specs forget is that you don't stick with one skill set in ESO (unless you're very bad or very lazy, usually both). You swap skills depending on the situation.
    Just for questing and normal dungeons, I have 3 different skill sets, tank, dps and thief (stealth).

    So to make it short:
    - Cookie cutter skill sets are rarely the best for you.
    - There's not one best way to make a character for a similar role.
    - You better be ready to swap skills (and also equipment) if you really want to be efficient.

    People who didn't get that have just barely touched the complexity and the power of ESO's character development system/
    Not really, at least in the context of PvE.  There are undeniable best combinations of weapons given the same level of gear and skill.

    Stamina DPS= DW/Bow, period
    Tanking=Sword/Board+Sword+Board, period

    ESO's problem is a lack of alternatives.  Skills for each weapon are too hard-lined for a specific purpose.

    Same with classes.

    Tank=DK, bar none
    Stamina DPS=Nightblade
    Magicka DPS=Sorc
    Healer=Templar
    My nightblade tank works very well and isn't weak in any way, but it's based on drains and self healing too a bit like a WoW Death Knight. I'm used to that gameplay, that may explain why it works so well for me.


    That's pretty much the character I've been playing. Gave up on my templar as I couldn't figure out how to play it the way I wanted to. The Heavy Armor Night Blade has been a better experience so far.
    Don't forget to get a "thief" set too. Makes doing some content much easier.
    I'm using 5 medium armor "Night's Silence", 3 or 4 "Night Terror" (depending on if I'm dual wielding or using a two hander) and 3 "cyrodiil's ward" that I swap with more of the night terror when not outdoors. That's for doing quests/delves/skyshards/etc... and also awesome of course for the thief and assassin guild quests.

    I love that dialog:

    Lady Sylvanas Windrunner says: Where is that Ogre headed buffoon?
    Lady Sylvanas Windrunner says: Ah, speak of the devil ...
    Portals from Orgrimmar arrive with Hellscream, Hellscream's elite, and High Warlord Cromush.
    Hellscream jumps from the portal down to Sylvanas.
    Garrosh Hellscream says: This better be important, Sylvanas. You know how I detest this place and its foul stench. Why have you called for me?
    Garrosh Hellscream says: And more importantly, what are those Scourge fiends doing here?
    Garrosh makes a gesture at the Val'kyr.
    Lady Sylvanas Windrunner says: Warchief, so glad you could make it.
    Lady Sylvanas Windrunner says: With the death of the Lich King, many of the more intelligent Scourge became...unemployed. Those 'fiends,' as you so delicately put it, are called val'kyr. They are under my command now...
    Lady Sylvanas Windrunner says: ...and they are part of the reason that I asked to see you.
    Garrosh Hellscream says: Get on with it Sylvanas.
    Lady Sylvanas Windrunner says: Very well, Warchief. I have solved the plight of the Forsaken!
    Lady Sylvanas Windrunner says: As a race, we Forsaken are unable to procreate.
    Lady Sylvanas Windrunner says: With the aid of the val'kyr, we are now able to take the corpses of the fallen and create new Forsaken.
    Lady Sylvanas Windrunner says: Agatha, show the Warchief!
    The Val'kyr Agatha proceeds to resurrect fallen corpses as Forsaken.
    High Warlord Cromush says: ABERRATION!
    Garrosh Hellscream says: What you have done here, Sylvanas... it goes against the laws of nature. Disgusting is the only word I have to describe it.
    Lady Sylvanas Windrunner says: Warchief, without these new Forsaken my people would die out ... Our hold upon Gilneas and northern Lordaeron would crumble.
    Garrosh Hellscream says: Have you given any thought to what this means, Sylvanas.
    Garrosh Hellscream says: What difference is there between you and the Lich King now?
    Lady Sylvanas Windrunner says: Isn't it obvious, Warchief? I serve the Horde.
    Sylvanas mockingly salutes Garrosh.
    Garrosh Hellscream says: Watch your clever mouth, bitch.
    Garrosh Hellscream says: Cromush, you stay behind and make sure the Banshee Queen is well "guarded." I will be expecting a full report when next we meet.
    High Warlord Cromush says: As you command, Warchief!
    Garrosh Hellscream says: Remember, Sylvanas, eventually we all have to stand before our maker and face judgment. Your day may come sooner than others...

  • Which gaming company would you donate money to if you won the lottery?

    Not a single cent to any gaming company.
    If that would ever happen, you'd never read from me again on any gaming forum. I'd be way too busy exploring every single corner of our magnificent planet.

    That's the real question.
    "Hate" is forum slang for "dislike" ;)
