Time for an Elder Scrolls Online Thread

This game is as faithful as you can be to the instructions "skyrim, but online", bethesda bugs and all. Damn if I don't love it more and more each time I play though. I rambled about it in that other thread. That can get merged if people care.

Here's the best beginner's guide I've found, with some good examples of the game's more original features.

I actually enjoyed the beta a lot, but I wasn't about to pay the asking price for it.

Problem is you look at the higher-level play videos and it stops looking like a neat online actiony kind of game and just turns into another "form a circle around this big thing and mash across your number row at it" festival. I don't think I'd ever want to play it past the beginner areas, which is actually sort of okay.

I have no intention of playing this game, but I do have an academic interest in how the endgame plays out for it.

I hope it ends with every PC becoming Tiber Septim and the next proper TES game is about how we deal with all these fucking Tiber Septims running around.

のほも is such a good word?? the concept is kind of hard to fully get across in translation, but basically it means a feeling of pure, deep, platonic affection, and i think thats beautiful

Down to $15 already, $12 with code.

Tempting, especially since I don't think I ever have to worry about playing the game enough to give a shit about the DLC/Realmoney shitstorm at the upper echelons. But by the same token, I don't really have enough time to sink my teeth into this and the rest of my ever-expanding backlog, either.
