Salvation cannot come from one Hero alone...but from Many.

A stolen soul. An undead army rising. A quest to recover that which is uniquely yours. Only you can save the world from the evil machinations of the Deadric Prince, Molag Bal, and the first known necromancer, Mannimarco.

The Elder Scrolls Online is set in the Age of Heroes, roughly 1,000 years before the events in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim and the coming of the Dragonborn, and just before the rise of Tiber Septim, the first Emperor of Tamriel. Three Alliances have emerged across the continent, each struggling for supremacy over the land. As these great powers battle one another for control of the Imperial City - and with it all of Tamriel - darker forces are moving to destroy the world!


Story of ESO

It is a time of strife and unrest. Armies of revenants and dark spirits manifest in every corner of Tamriel. Winters grow colder and crops fail. Mystics are plagued by nightmares and portents of doom. Four years ago, in 2E 578, an arcane explosion of energy in the Imperial City set off mystical aftershocks that swept across Nirn. Mages died or went mad. Supernatural abominations from the plane of Oblivion, the Daedra, appeared in greater numbers than ever before. The constellation of the Serpent grew so large that it dominated the night sky.   

 

So began the grand scheme of Molag Bal, Daedric Prince of domination and enslavement. His Dark Anchors, vortexes of evil magic, weaken the barrier between worlds, threatening to merge Nirn and Oblivion into a single, nightmarish hellscape. 

 

In the midst of this chaos, three alliances vie for control of the Imperial City and the White-Gold Tower. High Rock, Sentinel, and Orsinium stand as one, united under the rule of the High King in Wayrest. Valenwood and Elsweyr have forged an alliance of their own with Summerset, while Black Marsh, Morrowind, and Skyrim have formed a third, uneasy pact.

The Daggerfall Covenant. The Aldmeri Dominion. The Ebonheart Pact.

Three armies will take up arms against the Empire, and against each other, to wrest control of the Imperial City and White-Gold Tower from the dark forces of Oblivion itself.

Where do your loyalties lie?

The Alliance War

The drums of war have reached a fever pitch, calling the warriors of Tamriel to the field of battle.  The Daggerfall Covenant, the Ebonheart Pact, and the Aldmeri Dominion will take up arms and fight for control of Cyrodiil, the Imperial City, and the throne of Tamriel.

Featuring three-sided Player vs. Player (PvP) gameplay, The Elder Scrolls Online supports hundreds of players on screen at once in an open world fight for control of Cyrodiil. Seize, hold, and control the resources of massive strongholds. Utilize massive siege weapons to crumble fortress walls and smash through fortified gates.  Conquer the Imperial City, and your alliance’s top player could even be crowned Emperor!

Get ready for the most intense online PvP experience ever created, with The Elder Scrolls Online.

The System

In The Elder Scrolls Online, players choose to become members of one of three alliances. Each alliance has a unique story and specific goals.
The Daggerfall Covenant is comprised of the two Provinces of northwest Tamriel: High Rock and Hammerfell, home to the Bretons and the Redguards. The Covenant has also offered the Orcs the opportunity to return to their ancient homeland of Orsinium in exchange for their support. Working together, the three races have formed a powerful alliance that aims to restore the Second Empire and bring peace and prosperity back to Tamriel.
The Ebonheart Pact is the most tenuous of alliances, consisting of former enemies turned allies in northern and eastern Tamriel. The Nords, Dark Elves, and Argonians of Skyrim, Morrowind, and Black Marsh fight to restore stability to the Empire and ensure their own autonomy.
The Aldmeri Dominion is composed of the three races of southern Tamriel: the Wood Elves of Valenwood, the Khajiit of Elsweyr and the leaders of the Pact, the High Elves of the Summerset Isles. The Aldmeri Dominion fights to stop the dangerous machinations of humankind, and restore the Elven dominance in Tamriel.

4 out of 5 eggsESO Veterans Honest Review.

Pros: Players Game History: I have played ESO since BETA 1 and still play it today. I will try and give an unbiased opinion on the game.
GRAPHICS & SOUND 5/5: The game is very attractive visually. The lighting in the game is phenomenal. Textures are smooth and well done. Do not expect Skyrim graphics for an MMO. The graphics that have been placed for this MMO are perfect. The sound like in any Elders game is on also phenomenal. The way they worked the ambient sounds and music to suit your situation is art. I catch myself rising up the sound with my BOSE headset to completely immures myself into the environment.

CONTENT 5/5: This game is nothing short of content. There is PVP and there is tons of quest and dungeons even after main game completion. You can spend days on one map working on side quest and then notice that you have not touched the main story line. The crafting is easy and a-lot of fun to do, it’s not a huge headache like in a-lot of MMO’s. Everything is very well organized.

COMMUNITY 4/5: As a-lot of MMO games there are immature kids aka. Trolls, but due to a pay-to-play it’s not a huge deal. There is a-lot of older group guilds to play into. I have met a-lot of people out there looking to help you out with quests and dungeons it all just depends who you run into. If you are a mature MMO player looking for a good community this is a game to look into.

Gameplay 4/5: There are some bugs still being polished out. It was a rough launch for the game but that is to be expected. There has never been an MMO with a perfect launch. For people that were there for the WOW launch they know how bad it was. The game play is very well done. The combat seems a tad laggy at times when switching weapons or popping a potion but I am very far away from there servers at the moment and the ping spike is to be expected but it is very rare. The combat is more straight forward then elder scrolls with a max of 12 skills with the total of two weapons equipped but only 5+1 ult can be equipped on a single weapon, which I enjoy over the over population of squares in a-lot of MMOs. It’s a-lot more tactical so switching between skills for situations is a must.

ADD-ONS: This is a unique part of ESO. They give you the ability to put in add-ons into the game. Example: Mini Map/ Health Gauges/ Damage tracker..etc I use this function, and truly enjoy the flexibility of the game.

Pay-to-play: Everyone has their opinion on a P2P game. I personally do not drink nor do I smoke. People spend tons of money on both or one of the other, much more than 15$ A MONTH but they don’t bat an eye or take that to account. I am a strong believer in P2P especially with a game that will continue to produce content and take care of their people. It also helps weed out the kids that ruin the game.

Cons: BOTs: If you are not versed on what a BOT is, it refers to a player that is actually being ran by a third party program and does not have someone at the actual key board. This was a huge problem at the start of the game and still is going on now. Zenimax has been working to remove BOTs completely like all MMOs. I have ran into GM (Game Masters) that you can message and they will delete/remove BOTs on the spot. Thousands of account have been terminated for BOTing. So something is being done about it.

Phasing/party questing: This could be one of the biggest mistakes that was programed into the game. I truly enjoy MMO’s for the ability to be able to quest with my fellow questers but it has been hindered immensely. If you are working on a quest and have done any advancements in the quest and you have a friend that just started that quest you will not be able to help him/her in the quest unless you start the quest over from the start (removing it from quest que and picking it back up) and if you complete it, you will not be able to help them at all. I am not sure why they would do this but I really hope it can be changed.

Gold drop: The gold drop from mobs is quite horde. The average is about 2 gold from any given mob and boss mobs can range from 1 - a couple hundred. When a horse cost 40,000+ gold its hurts. The maps are huge which good thing when you have a horse to run around in but if you are on foot you will be taking twice as long to get to places then usual. You could get the imperial edition which starts you off with a horse for 1 gold but you would have to fork out 80$ and not everyone is able to produce that kind of money for a game.

IMPERIAL EDITION: I bought the imperial edition for 80$ which includes a month subscription+ imperial armor conversion + 1 gold coin horse + some extra pets + imperial race. I honestly spent an extra 20$ for the horse and imperial race. I do not run with a pet(ill explain why after this) I do not convert my armor to imperial (which any one get through Motifis). You can buy the normal edition and if you notice you love it and want it all the little extras you can always upgrade it to the imperial edition. Just weigh the pros and cons.

The bagging/ loot bags: The main reasons I have issues with the bagging system is not the actual space, they give you plenty of space and the ability to expand in the bank, your person and your horse. It’s the fact that the pets you get take up inventory space. They are not a special equipped item. Example if you want a monkey to follow you, you have to have it in your bag not equipped to your person. Same goes with the Treasure maps. They took a-lot of space at the start of the game and still do. Other than that the amount of space you can upgrade to is great.

Other Thoughts: To wrap this review up the game is honestly very well made. The content is there, there is updating and bug fixing is on a regular cycle and I do believe it’s a 4.5 egg game. I would completely recommend this game to a friend. I actually am buying a laptop for my wife so we can quest together on a new pact. The game does have its flaws but the pros far outweigh any flaw this game has. If you don’t mind P2P, a strong community, plenty of content and more to come, fantastic visuals and sound then you are in the write neighborhood. Take my review like a grain of salt, pick up the game and try it out and best of luck in Tamrial!

5 out of 5 eggsBuilding a $7K System for this Game

Pros: The game play (especially the combat) is better than in Skyrim. You don't have to flip through a bunch of annoying menus. I guess they had to fix that problem given it is real time.

Cons: The graphics are not as good as Skyrim, but better than any other MMORPG I have played.

Other Thoughts: I am wondering why I am writing this review rather than playing the game.

1 out of 5 eggsWhat a letdown,

Pros: Beautiful graphics and animation. Large map and complex character development

Cons: Bait and switch. Although there was information in the forums about the pay-to-play revenue model, nothing in the description for my pre-order mentioned a subscription. Previous games in the Elder Scrolls series were purchase and play forever. If you must use pay-to-play the game should be free to download. Skyrim cost the same to purchase. Total cost to play the first year: $ 240. After all the hype, I expected responsive game play tor this much money, but when the lagginess gets my player killed, performance is unacceptable. I cancelled my subscriiption before the end of my "free" game time. Don't get me started about having to sign up for recurring subscription charges to play my "free" month. The announced prepaid game time cards have never become available in the "major retailers" in the US.

Other Thoughts: Don't throw good money after bad on this one.

1 out of 5 eggsNOT Elder Scrolls

Pros: as an MMO it is really not bad
if you are looking at replacing WoW this would be fine.
If you haven't played Elder Scrolls this has a few things to offer.

Cons: If you loved Elder Scrolls there is nothing to see here.
If you like me wanted the richness of Elder Scrolls that you could play in a multi player world, you will want your money back also.
if this was made clear that it was a improved MMO with no resemblance to Elder Scrolls that would help.

Other Thoughts: Compared to Elder Scrolls this is a full on fail.
be ready to cancel your subscription...just saying...

2 out of 5 eggsGreat MMO, Horrible 1st Person

Pros: A far cry above WoW, imo. The graphics are nowhere near the realism of Skyrim but beat WoW or Guild Wars hands down. NPC interaction are more personalized than WoW. I'd guess EOS will kill WoW.

Cons: If you're looking for the traditional first-person experience of The Elder Scrolls series this probably won't cut it for you. I don't care for the third-person arcade look of MMOs. Enemies outlined in red combined with arcadish spell effects and animations definitely ruins the immersion experience in Elder Scrolls Online. You can select 1st person view but that has a small field of view and the ridiculous effects/animations are still there. Not to mention 1st person puts you at a serious disadvantage in pvp. You're forced into 3rd person, if you want to stay alive. Also requires recurring subscription sign up to access free trial period.

Other Thoughts: I think it is dishonest of Zenimax to market this product to traditional Elder Scrolls fans who are looking for the traditional ES immersion experience. I'm worried Fallout 4 is going to be butchered. It seems like Elder Scrolls is on a course of greatly advancing graphics and profoundly dumbing down the role-play experience i.e. fail-proof quests and quest arrows for 5-8 years olds. I love the Elder Scrolls so I promptly cancelled my EOS recurring subscription.
