Looking pretty cool in that brief but animated showcase video! I like how it does more than just have a simple bite attack, and I hope fighting them ingame has that dynamic and weighty feel to it.

I've noticed in their last two videos, Zenimax has been allowing comments on youtube. I guess they were tired of hearing people demand beta invites and the release date on every facebook discussion!


Character Profiles:
Endaros Ilmori - Buoyant Armiger

I'm impressed by the animations and overall look of it. I hope all the creatures we face will be of a similar quality.

I like the amount of effort they're putting into their creatures; on their model meshes, animations, and AI.

This however has its drawbacks, as no doubt each of these creatures are costly to fully create. So I wonder how many of these models will be "reused" throughout the world of Tamriel. After all we're receiving only a small section of Black Marsh at the start, so would the Wamasu model be only found there and nowhere else? Will we be seeing a lizard beast in the Al'akir desert with a recolored Wamasu model and similar AI?

We've seen from the Journey to Cold Harbour video that they are reusing Flame Atronachs and Spriggans to some degree to represent something other than their natural selves. Although it would be ideal to have each creature be unique in Tamriel, it may not be feasible considering budget and limited time to have it so. Still, they have been working on it for over five years and with a very large budget.

Anyways, that's just something to consider.

All I know, is if I can't get past a certain creature because of the AI, I'm sending Maria Aliprando tons of hate mail.

I am the shadow within a shadow. I will accept any job; however I will execute the target, or maybe even the person who hired me; it all depends on who has the most gold to give. Even then you can not trust me to let you walk away with your life.

Better do a handstand, get some of the extra blood out of your head and back up to your feet.

How dose doing a handstand get blood to your feet when more blood will now go to your head?
