#34110 Argonians - Insanely Overpowered

Posted by Brodo Swaggins on March 20, 2014 - 01:26 AM

Okay, guys, close your eyes and imagine this for a second. It will be hard to read the elder scroll I'm about to reveal with your eyes closed, yes, but it's not all bad. At least it will prevent your brain from melting after you realize you're looking at the future emperor of Tamriel until this is patched. 
Haven't you ever seen Indiana Jones? 


First things first. I'll cut right to the OP aspect of this build. Let me learn you on a little thing called Hemidactylus frenatus, better known to TES lore enthusiasts as the master race of Tamriel - yes, the Argonian.



Detailed biological schema of Hemidactylus frenatus by a police sketch artist.


Now that I have your ears (and hopefully not your eyes), I'll learn you about what's going to make Hemidactylus frenatus the most efficient killing machine Tamriel has ever seen since I massacred Whiterun in Skyrim 2 hours ago.
Ladies and gentleman....
I give you...
The most blatantly over-powered buff any MMO has ever seen.
+50% swim speed 
+50% swim speed
+50% swim speed
+50% swim speed
+50% swim speed


I don't even need to plan out any additional skills this is so OP. I mean think about it. See that puddle on the battlefield, nords? May as well go home because +50% fucking swim speed.


Oh, what's that? Your level 50 night blade khajiit can one-hit KO me with a backstab? Try again, because...


+50%. Fucking. Swim. Speed.


Fuck, I'm almost sorry because this just isn't fair.

#33289 Collision Detection Added to Beta?

Posted by Brodo Swaggins on February 22, 2014 - 09:21 PM



Hey guys! Self post for no karma, just wanted to let everyone know:

The latest closed beta build added collision detection with enemy NPCs. I'm not sure if it added it for players as well, but it is definitely in for monsters.

It makes first person combat feel pretty damn awesome, in my opinion.

I know there have been discussions on whether this was "plausible," or not, so it looks like you finally have a definitive answer outside of armchair theory: Yes. It is.


Alleged patch notes (source)...

  • Collision detection with NPCs just got put in. 
  • You can also now skip the starter islands and go straight to the first city in your area. You can port back to starter islands if you want.
  • Mob difficulty increase slightly starting at level 5. 
  • Buffs and nerfs to class abilities
  • Fixed an issue where many abilities were not properly obeying line of sight rules.

#33288 Possible Beta Starting February 28th

Obviously it doesn't say this upcoming weekend specifically, but I would lean that way given that they're usually announced on Tuesday (source: Crazier).

#32610 Wretched Abyss Glitch.

Posted by Brodo Swaggins on February 02, 2014 - 06:40 PM

It might be an issue with Dragonborn, it might not. If you have Dragonborn installed the Wretched Abyss should be a mass of floating tentacles instead of the blue/purple orb.

I've read about a few people with the same bug (i.e. WA won't talk) but I don't know of any answers or fixes. Loading a previous save probably won't do anything. Installing (or reinstalling) Dragonborn might fix it, and is probably your best shot.


Let us know if installing Dragonborn works. :)

I may have ruined my underwear after seeing that banner. Good job to whoever made it.


Good to see some adult-oriented options available as well.

#30913 Negative Reactions - Any Truth to Them?

Posted by Brodo Swaggins on November 24, 2013 - 08:35 PM

I personally haven't been involved in any beta events, so the following negative reactions scare me.


The game is legitimately worse than Skyrim. I don't mind being banned from the Beta and any future tests so if anyone wants I can give a play-by-play. I don't mind getting banned because it's so bad I wont ever play it.


Calling ESO an MMO is hilarious. It's not Massive, it's not Multiplayer, and fuck, without the other two it could do without being Online. It's super-mega-instanced(Even for an instanced game it's super instanced, like, 5x worse than Skyrim instanced), graphics are meh, combat is clicky-clicky like Skyrim but more clunky and with less depth(THAN SKRYIM), 5 hotbar abilities(lol console)...


A friend of my put it succinctly;




From what I've seen in videos (official and third-party), it doesn't seem as bad as the above indicates. But, again, I've never actually played the pre-release product so I can't exactly refute this guy's complaints.


Someone talk me down from the ledge.

#30092 ESO ‘Ask Us Anything’ – Variety Pack 9

Posted by Brodo Swaggins on October 21, 2013 - 04:17 PM

Read answers to ESO questions sent in from TESO Junkies and Tamriel Foundry at elderscrollsonline.com. Here’s a snippet of this week’s feature:

How do you intend to make each Alliance War campaign feel persistent? Will campaigns last forever, or will they change from time to time, and will the enemies rotate?

Campaigns last for three months at a time, so you’ll find yourself running into familiar faces during them. Also note that you won’t get rotated out or switched to other campaigns unless you choose to; you’ll be able to stay in the same campaign for the entire time your character exists if you want! When a campaign ends, the only things that reset are its leaderboards and the score. Keeps, Scroll ownership, emperor status, and where you are in the world don’t get reset. It gives a great sense of persistence when only the scoring mechanics “reset.”

#29722 ESO ‘Ask us Anything’ – Variety Pack 8

Posted by Brodo Swaggins on October 07, 2013 - 11:20 AM

Posted ImageThe newest ‘Ask Us Anything‘ for The Elder Scrolls Online is now online. Visit the official site to get answers about weapons, inventory items, PvP, and more.

Here’s a sampling…

Will there be items or spells players can obtain that will cast an appearance illusion over them, making, say, a Breton look like an Argonian or a frost troll for a limited amount of time?

Yes. We have a disguise mechanic in the game, which allows you to equip an item that changes your appearance. This can be used for costuming purposes or, for instance, to infiltrate the camp of an enemy. There are also spells that change your appearance for a limited amount of time—these can change your appearance in more drastic ways than disguises can.
