Was just wondering what you guys thought about the UI in TESO. I know they have said they wanted to limit the amount of UI on screen at once. But what would you like to see?

Also what about the menu screens, will they be like previous mmorpgs or put their own spin on it?

very much a fan. If you have played EQ2 by any chance, thats how NOT to do it. and how to do it in one.

Why was it good? Because you could full on customize anything, turn off parts of it, have other parts constantly blendet in. it worked a bit like Morrowinds system, but better.
Why was it awfull? Because to be decent, you needet a GAZILLION hotbars.

Wich leads me to my next point: dont allow UI mods that interfere with the gameplay. NO healbot for TESO.

Yeah I agree, no healbot but especially don't allow that stupid gearscore add on from Wow that literally broke the community from hardcore and casual gamers!

cant remember what that did. was it the one where you could type in your char name and server and it would spit out a number and would show on a scoreboard in wich dungeons you could go with that gear or not?
i remember a website like that.

Yeah it was similar. It took your current items add their item scores together and then would tell you what dungeons and raids you could do, yeah.

They have been quite clear about what we are going to see

Compass
Minimap
Mana/Stamina/Health
Action bar (5 skills + ultimate ability) edit: forgot dedicated potion button as well


Regarding the gayscore and dmgmeters, I already went tru long argument about it. Im very firm about it inspiring bad gameplay (glass canon builds, heal sniping and overhealing, forcing players into specific builds and whatnot).

I dont think that sort of crap will appear ingame, but people who love to call themselves hardcore raiders, might eventually find a way via external programs. Especially if we get combat log in game. If it makes it in game, I would still praise megaserver tech and simply filter out anyone who mention it Cthulhu

I dont want to see a UI, Id rather see less, so.. I can see more of the scenery and environment and combat, isnt that what TES is about anyway?

Yea, I remember reading about this as well. I think I read it on one of the sites of the people who were invited to play, and also heard it in an interview with one of the game devs.

I also hope that this doesn't exist. It would cause the community to degrade as in WoW.

A map, hotkeys, chat log and fade in/fade out health/stamina/mana bars.
Just these bare essentials would suit me.

Whether the game has damage meters or not wouldn't bother me, it is a nice feeling to top them in other games though.

@Rage, @Archmage Rythis: I concur with you, I hate eyecandy let alone the calculaters / map loggers. What has been said, is all anyone needs, less UI more ESO.

Tbh id like their new hot bar and mp/hp/stam and a compass showing where north is. no quests or objectives shown on it helllo morrowind..

One thing they need to improve on is the enemy hp bar and should it include mp/stam for greater awareness for greater tactics.

Welcome to Addon list. We want to edit own feeling on in-game to look.

I am sure curse.com or other links will make a addon section for TESO later...

Well I know that they said about,that there is not going to have a hud and only a mini map and the health & magica so the screen will be free of all that stuff getting in the way of the beauty of the game.

Back when I used healbot I only used it so I could neatly have the entire raid on the screen at once. Ever since they upgraded the in game raid UI with Cata I have stopped using it and now use the in game one. I don't believe in mouseovers and I'm still one of the best healers on my server.

OT: I want to see a UI like Skyrim's personally. Fade out health, magicka, stamina bars, a compass, quest tracking (one thing I hate is thinking I understand the quest then going off and looking for hours completely in the wrong area like I did in Morrowind and even wow back before they added it), and our hot bar. The only other thing that should be able to show up is everyone else's health, magicka, stam, as well as enemies 3 stats as well. But have it be able to be toggled like in wow (press shift v for friendly bars and v for enemy bars).
