For people who have loved the Elder Scrolls games for years, but never really got sucked into the MMO craze, Elder Scrolls online can seem a bit intimidating. To help ease the transition from single player fun to MMO awesome, you might consider picking up an Elder Scrolls online guidebook. Like all game guides, and ESO guide will give you important tips for getting the most out of your game, but it can also help you understand what to expect from an Elder Scrolls MMO.
Let look at the guide
There are three alliances. If you want to play with your friends, all of you should pick an alliance together first. Each alliance has their own quest lines and such. Have fun exploring them.
There are nine races, three for each alliance. Each has their own abilities you can check out in the character builder.
There are three stats in ESO-Stamina, Health and Magicka. Unlike most MMOs, these stats increase when you spend special stat points to raise them. Decide early whether you want to be a spell caster, DPS/fighter or tank (or combination). Putting ten levels worth of stat points in Stamina and then deciding you want to be a tank is a good way to end up dead a lot.
One thing ESO does not lack is skills. There are class skills, weapon skills, guild skills, crafting skills…
Skills improve as you use them, so if you want to be awesome with a broadsword use it all the time. There are unlimited skill points available in ESO. You not only get skill points from leveling, but also from reading books, finding shards and other stuff.
Skills get morph abilities that allow you to specialize them. A morph ability gives your skill a little extra something, like a weapons skill can gain knock-back or extra damage (you get to choose which, you can’t get both.)
Some skills are synergy skills. This means that they work with the skills of a different class to make a more awesome effect. Synergy skills only come into effect during group play.
Classes are build around themes, not combat style. However each is stronger in different areas. If you want to play:
DPS-DragonKnight, Sorcerer, Nightblade
battlefield control-Sorcerer, Nightblade
Yes, you can become Emperor. Unless you are prepared to give up your life to play ESO all the time, you won’t though. All PvP takes place in Cyrondil, the capital, where each alliance is fighting for control. Winning alliance gets some nice bonuses and can try to take on Molag Bal (big, BIG bad). You can’t PvP until level 10, and ESO has a special ‘battlefield skill’ system that levels the playing field (IE-higher level characters get their skills nerfed a bit in PvP so they aren’t slaughtering lower levels left and right).
You can only become an expert in two crafts. Special crafting locations allow you to make unique items not available anywhere else. Looking for crafting materials is a good way to find bonus skill points and hidden quest lines.
Easy Ways Of Leveling Up Fast In ESO
Unlike in other games where your level is determined by the number of skill increases that you have, your level in ESO is determined by the amount of experience that you gain. Although, gaining experience can be challenging, there are a number of ways in which you can go about it. Here are some of the ways:
This is one of the best ways of earning a lot of experience. The good side is that quests are very easy to do and all you need to do is to follow the arrows associated with your quest and complete them. Once you complete a quest you are awarded with XP, gold and other items.
There are many quests that you can complete. For example, there are general quests that you pick from NPCs across Tamriel. There are also guild quest lines that give you a lot of experience and rewards.
When completing the quests you should note that the more demanding quests tend to give you higher rewards; therefore, you should not go for quick and easy quests only; you should also try the harder ones.
Here you need to explore outside big cities and kill any enemies that you come across. You should note that you tend to gain more XP when you kill enemies that are at a higher level than your character. For ideal results, you should aim at killing any creatures and foes that are 1 to 2 levels above your character.
Other than exploring the big cities looking for enemies, you should also participate in full-scale wars. Since you will be able to kill many creatures in the wars, you will get loads of rewards.
Although, they are new to the Elder scrolls universe, they play a huge role in helping you to level up fast. For you to collect them you need to search for them all over the world.
Here you need to keep your eyes and ears out. The good side is that they make a ringing sound and shine very brightly; therefore, it’s easy to spot them from a distance.
Once you see a Skyshard, you should activate it by clicking on it in order to harness its power. Once you have a set of three Skyshards, you will have a point to spend. To keep track of the number of Skyshards that you have you only need to look at your skills and abilities menu.
