Just stumbled onto this. Very nice explanation at how the skills work, in my opinion!

I was just about to post this, beat me to it!

This is nothing new to the beta-people, but it's nice that they release new info for the broad public now on how progression works. It's nice that they try to stay true to the TES philosophy.

It's a solid summary on progression for those who may still be unfamiliar about it. Thanks for sharing, Harlwystyr!

Also there's some nice gameplay video accompanying it! I think the armor design is improving slightly from previously shown images, though I hope it continues to get better!

The guys standing around with twohanded weapons appear to shake and reel too much... makes me think they need to go on the toilet ;)


Who controls the Septim crown?
Who keeps the Allesian Heresy down?
We do, we do

Who knocked Yokuda off the maps?
Who keeps the Dwemer under wraps?
We do, we do

Francis Drake died of diarrhea while wearing full armour. It can get messy both on Nirn and on Earth. ;)

As one who didn't get an invite to the recent beta weekend, this has salved my seething jealousy somewhat. It seems like there should be plenty of variation and different builds and playstyles, I only hope the game can deliver them. Of course, I'd need to play the game to know for sure......hint hint Zenimax.

am i the only one at least slightly weirded out by the fact that orc racial armor makes them into samurai. i would assume it's their racial because it was only worn by orcs and i saw it in 2 different scenes (is scenes the right word?)

still great vid i have to say. the effects are looking pretty decent, by MMO standerds at least.


hey hey hey... stay out of my shed!

Hopefully ZoS can get some closed beta invites to fans in Europe! Which I'm assuming should occur at some point soon, as they'd want to test how their servers hold up over there.

I assume you're talking about that leather banded armor they were wearing?

The orcish armor in Morrowind had a samurai feel to it, and I'm guessing this style extends to their medium armor which we haven't previously seen before.

I like that it's a somewhat unique armor style to the typical fantasy orc (which is normally something along the lines of black spikes.) Although it may feel a bit strange at first, you may appreciate it more over time as you become more accustomed to it. It makes them stands out from other fictions, and while unfamiliar may make them more memorable.

I'm guessing Europe - and regions associated to it - will get little beyond stress tests. But I'm ok with it.

I once cared a lot about "fairness" in beta, but nowadays I just want a good game at launch.

I'm guessing that orc armour is actually akiviri in design. I believe it is akivir that commonly is shown with a very Japanese-style influence. At least in Skyrim i think that's how it was. Orc armour was a bit more brutish in the past couple TES games. But it does look good.

The Orcs have always had a prevalent Mongolian influence, you can see it in the Morrowind Orcish armour as well as the Orcish gear from Skyrim. This leather armour (medium?) follows in that vein, though it appears a little clean cut if you ask me.

To be honest it does look as though in the images displayed the graphics have been turned down a notch, as we have already seen gameplay with better graphics.

I think it would look more rugged with higher settings.
Otherwise, im loving what im seeing.

Finally we are starting to see a more fleshed out game, it used to be pictures/gameplay of the Dunmer, now we see all the races, with different armors in different regions.
Makes me excited.. Soon..
