Now, I'm not sure how this would fly by TESO creators and designers. But the thought of implementing sea battles would be pretty unique. It would be a great addition to look at much further into the release of the game. They have boats in the game and everywhere so shouldn't there be some sort of interaction with the landscape. I know we can swim an all but come on, who doesn't want to sail ships and fight each other. It gives a different style of PVP. I'm sure after a while the Cyrodil battles would get boring.

Maybe in expansions, TESO need step-by-step in first round and look if many players love TESO, and they will tell own friends to add TESO, so it is the plan for next round....

But i hope as well, explorer in Nirn (World) would be NICE and set sea battles with warships, trade/transport ships, and more!

I think this might be done later on with expansions and such.

If it is going to be an expansion, I better start honing my pirate skills. Malicious

Exploring this massive world further than the reaches of the Tamriel mainland would be amazing. I can't wait how to see they incorporate different physics over the years.

I'd have to agree with you but you never know. Alot of Mmo's just stick with their boring mainland battles. Especially battle related MMO's. I do hope TESO spices it up though and adds something similar in an expansion. Having the game as P2P would really help the game grow from the start.

if you played a game called Allods online. there's a feature in that game that allows you to have a pvp on ship. there would be a ship reactor(energy source), ship hull(hp), ship cannons, ship artillery, ship energy shields, ship visor(buff to your ship),ship scanner(to locate enemy ships and islands/allods,ship goblin repair tinkerer, ship steering wheel.

so basically you have to fire cannons to destroy enemy shields and damage the hulls hp. another way to defeat an enemy ship is to plant a bomb inside their ship. so you have to jump from your ship to their ship(80% fail rate. its hard to time it) and put the mine in the reactor of the enemy ship. its channeling and once you get hit, it resets. you can also jump on their ship, to kill the players in the ship so that they can't use the ship devices. so yeah, its a fun ship pvp. its either you destroy their ship from the outside, or from the inside.

Ahh but you also must remember this is an ES game. And the people at Zenimax are very open and are grateful for the input of Todd Howard and all of the people who work on making the Elder Scrolls Series the great success that it is. So I think it isn't too far fetch for them to go hmm why not make one of these other land bodies part of TESO or for fact an ES game.

But in the elder scrolls universe firearms or cannons haven't been invented, so sea battles would just be about boarding the enemy ship and then kill them the old-fashioned way. Ranged weapons and magic would be very effective, possibly, but otherwise I don't really see the appeal.


If an argonian turned into a werecrocodile would there be any difference in appearance? Like, at all?

I like this idea, I played mods in Morrowind that used ship decks & cabins as transport to other ships to battle on or to land & back .. but they were stationary of course. I think someone did make a mod where a boat moved but it was a smaller boat. Trying to remember that one.

As for cannons, in Morrowind we had the giagantic crossbow looking things, I forget what they were called. But I made a Cliffracer shooting tower mod and we all got quite silly about the objects besides spears-for-arrows to shoot at cliffracers - like rotten kwama eggs, meat bombs, jugs of shein, dead mudcrabs, etc. Was funny.

The question is - will there be any thrown weapons in TESO, which disappeared in games after MW. Always we have bows but why not the shiricons & spears & crossbows?

i would like that, but i find it highly unlikeley. Due to PvP beeing limited to cyrodiil, and i cant realy see this beeing any fun outside of PvP.
However. mixed with underwater combat, this could be one hell of an expirience. As for pvE, i can see every faction fighting with something on the see. The Maomer for the Dominion, the akaviri for the pact and pirates for the Covenant, or probably some raiders from atmora (as atmora is freezing over in the second era.

As for the lore: cannons are in the lore. play redguard.

hell as far as i know, muskets are too.

also that map is HIGHLY inacurate. We do not know how atomra look, yokuda is destoryed and aldmeris doesnt exist. Also roscrea is to the northeast, not in the south.
