Ok, at least there wont be any vampire-werewolf hybrids

I think they actually spent all the goodies they were ready to reveal on last hands-on and PAX, rest of the stuff is still being developed so they just wont talk about it yet

First of all i want to say and rensure all:

Will I be able to make/eat sweet rolls? I must know! – By Luke Clarkson

Yes. And Fishy Sticks, of course.

Yaya to Sweet rolls.

On the other hand : / i dint get this one:

Since space on the hotbar will be limited, how will you implement using non-combat spells such as waterbreathing, water walking, magelight, open lock, and persuasion? What is the airspeed velocity of an unladen swallow? – By Paul Ballhorn

All spells will be cast through the hotbar or quickslot. European or African?


So... will we haw said skills (magelight, open lock, persuasion, etc) OR did he just dodge the question?

No he said that if you want magelight, if magelight is in the game (and I'm pretty sure it is), it will be a skill to put on your hotbar.

Yah nothing major here except for the whole vampires/werewolves thing. However I am interested in this "large-group PvE activity in the game" they mentioned.

If magelight is cast via hotbar, no one will ever use it. Why would you waste a slot on that?

More likely it isn't in the game and dungeons will always be light enough to see.

Hmm idk, somewhere i heard about using torches, i think there was some Shoddytalks video or something about a past article talking about using magelight or torches, and so the reasoning i heard was if those items are in game there might be a good enough reason to use it. Though I'm with yah if it's a hotbar ability it probably won't be used much.....but its hard to see how else things like that would be used. Maybe like an interactive thing where you walk up to a wall and click "Activate magelight or torch" like they did with sconces in skyrim. Or maybe magelights will also be healing AOE's? Like its a little light you throw up somewhere and everyone in the circle of light is healed x amount per second. That would be really cool

Pretty sure magelight was confirmed... somewhere. So I'm guessing it'll be there, taking up a slot on your hotbar if you want it. However, IIRC you can also change out hotbar assignments fairly readily outside of combat. Ergo (speculatively) it's only the minor hassle of swapping hotbar spaces for non-combat spells when you want them and swapping them out after use limiting the use of such things.

And he... well, answered the letter of the question but I think he evaded the spirit of it.

It does seem like 50 stamina dodge, perhaps they think of it as concept now

I think magelight was mentioned as a spell from Mages Guil skill line, but I am not entirely sure about it.

Water breathing and walking - I suppose those could be left in alchemists competence a chucked as potion. I dont think there is really need for non-combat spells

Its a smart move in my opinion, if they confirm something what is still not set in stone and change it later, kids will go mad on forums

there are plenty of other questions they could have answered that we didnt know but are in stone anyway. like lore details and wich parts of the world are actually in. We still dont know too much of how large the part of morrowind featured in the game will be.
so far it looks like its only dres land and half of the indoril land.

I believe spells such as Magelight would most likely have good out of combat use, therefor you do not need to walk around combat ready, you could have your hotbar using all utility type spells.

Or they can poop some utility bomb on us:

Magelight 70 magicka, blinds nasties in 9meter radius for 3sec and serves as common light for another 10min

And boosted to Sunlight hurts undead for 24 fire damage. Making it powerful PvP AoE because every kid out there gonna be vampire

I swear im not gona do this again while having bfast, I almost choked laughing

The way I see it; this whole Q&A was nothing more than a well hidden sweet roll joke.
