Hello all!! Here to talk about the Dark Achors Instance. It's an in game event where a Anchor flies down and roots itself into the ground. You have to be about level 12 to participate I believe. But many people miss the fact that this game will in fact have in game events. During the pre alpha testing only one person got to the Dark Anchor since the maps are massive. It's said that the girl who made it had about 10-12 demons on her screen running after her. The purpose of these Anchor's lore wise is for Molag Bal to pull all of Tamriel into Oblivion. So as a real time event people must bad together an defeat these anchors together.

Just wondering, who said these are instanced? I thought they'd just be world events for reputation to the Fighter's guild.

Well I' not very mmo savy lmfao and didn't know wether to put instance or real time events. But anyways whats the harm in talking about an event in the game...? I talked to alot of people and your just assuming people know about these, many don't because everyone seems to overlook it.

Yeah I think they are real time events... but the distinction doesn't particularly take away from your post. I'm thinking these will be something like the GW2 world events that happen all over the place. One thing I'm wonder about is whether or not the difficulty will scale with the amount of players around? I think that's a pretty cool mechanic but it can be a bit of a troll if you're the only one around and doing fine but then 5 more players show up and all the sudden the demons do exponentially more damage haha.

It would also be neat if you got some type of specific drop for destroying these that could maybe be used in crafting or a different rewards vendor.

As far as I know there is no level cap unless they changed it since those reporters who tried the game some months ago which I recall one or two did fight anchors at level 4

I like world events. Let Molag Bal's minions run loose.

The real troll would be adventuring with your friends only to have an anchor drop on half of them and then having giant deadra attack you, I wonder if this will only be in PvP, maybe the anchors could turn the tide of battles or doom your army, what would happen if an anchor storm happened on a heated battle field would it destroy everyone or would everyone retreat? Or maybe the defenders could just retreat into the hold and build the gates shut in till everything takes care of its self.

Bahaha. Hopefully there would be enough warning to get out of the way. Or enough time to run away before the Daedra came out if that happened. I think they said it was in one of the public dungeons... not sure if that was a PvP zone or not.

Lmfaooo Atherston that's a pretty unique idea. It wouldn't happen all the time of course but i could see it potentially happening. It would result in a three way battle between Dadrea and the two opposing factions. For some reason I wouldn't want to see these in dungeons though. i'd prefer them just crashing out of the sky like a god damn meteor that just broke through to the stratosphere.

I had no idea this game would have PvE world events. This makes me even more excited. ^_^

on the matter of levels. as far as i know these can happen in any zone and i supose they kinda come in all kinds of level based flavours. i just hope that high level players get scaled down.
Otherwise i see them farming those for reputation with the fighters guild, or potentialy equipment for twinks, wich is annoying.

It depends on what the curve is for each rank of reputation. It might be a good source of rep at level 20 for the first rank or so, but it would be pointless to farm at max level since the rep gains are so small, and the rep required for, lets suppose, rank 4, is so great.
