So the early access for Elder Scrolls Online kicked off a few days ago and I just wanted to know if anyone is playing or will be playing. My tag is reknarok and I'm part of the Ebonheart Pact.
By the way, if you're still on the fence about Elder Scrolls Online I'll just sort of let you know exactly what you're in for.
A lot of people made the mistake of going into the beta/game basically expecting Skyrim but online, myself included. That's a bad idea, you can't compare an MMO to a single-player or even co-op game.
But for my second beta round, I went in with a different mindset. An MMO with a heavy Elder Scrolls theme and now I'm having a blast. I've decided to go with a thief-type character, dual-wield, leather armour, sneaking, and all that stuff. It's awesome.
Not to mention the scenery, like wow seriously. It's awesome and very reminiscent of older Elder Scrolls games if you've played them.
Some things I feel should be outlined here:
1. First and third person aspects supported.
2. Active blocking with a right-click, active attacking with left-click.
3. Weapon switching mid-combat.
4. Access to only 6 skills per weapon set.
5. Crafting in the game is a lot of fun, surprisingly enough.
So basically there's a quick rundown on ESO, if you're playing, gonna play, or might play, like I said I'm reknarok and I'm playing in the Ebonheart Pact.
