An Altmer will bleed a lot of blood if my Breton sticks her dagger in him.

On the other hand, if she simply uses her fire spells to torch him, he won't bleed any.

Maybe we could discuss here also just how bloody you think the overall mmorpg should be. Beheading, backstab, dismemberment, how much blood do you want spurting out? Do you want the blood splashing up onto your screen in closeups like some games do? Pooling around the victim like a spreading victory carpet?

How agregious do you want the effect of your spellcasting to be on your victim? Do you want them to writhe in agony, fall down on the ground, flash and tremor from electical spells? How much burning from fire spells? Colored flames .. to a crisp .. to a cinder? That you can still loot for their goods of course.

I picture Altmers to have very high octane blood and yet to bleed very thinly since they are such up tight people in general. Bretons & Imperials bleed like normal humans. Orcs and Nords to bleed very heavily. Redguards to spurt and pump out even though they be dead. Dunmer to bleed dark chalky blood and Bosmer to bleed resin-ish like blood. Argonians to bleed green blood and Khajiit to bleed sugary blood of course. Did I forget anyone?

"Va Khaj Dar - Khajiity's united? M'aiq will join!" M'aiq the Liar

I want a realistic amount of blood and gore.

Wounds, beheadings, blood on the blade, dripping blood from wounds, blood spurts, blood splashes, etc.

its got a teen rating so i wouldnt expect too much of it, wich is a shame, i like MMOs with a healthy dose of blood in it, makes the combat feel more impactfull. TERA, on all of its faults, actually had a nice bleeding animation. Then they took it out cause of the age rating....

Reality in Video games:

*stabbity stab*

Hmm this guy should be dead. I know I just stabbed him in the heart but he's still smacking me with his sword. Ouch.

*stabbity stab stab*

I've sliced his throat, stabbed him in the eye and stabbed him in the heart four times. And yet still this stupid Altmer is attacking me!

*stabbity stab stabbity stab stab* *chucks a fireball*

He's gotta be dead, he's a charred cris... no wait, he's still attacking me. What the? Hmm he must've healed himself somehow. This guy is harder to kill than Freddy Krueger.

*fireball stab fireball*

Finally. Is that my eyeball on the tip of his sword? Hmm maybe that's why I was having such a hard time hitting him. *uses heal spell* Oh much better. Vision greatly improved. *blinks* Oh hey, all the blood on me vanished. Cool. Now I don't have to do laundry.

An Altmer would bleed as much blood as an Altmer could, if an Altmer could bleed blood.

Konahrik, you obviously didn't get Deveron's response then. I find it to be a perfectly fine answer to your strange question..

For curiosity's sake, the most famous variation:

Guybrush: "How much wood could a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?"
Carpenter: "A woodchuck would chuck no amount of wood since a woodchuck can’t chuck wood.
Guybrush: "But if a woodchuck could chuck and would chuck some amount of wood, what amount of wood would a woodchuck chuck?"
Carpenter: "Even if a woodchuck could chuck wood and even if a woodchuck would chuck wood, should a woodchuck chuck wood?"
Guybrush: "A woodchuck should chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood, as long as a woodchuck would chuck wood."
Carpenter: "Oh shut up."

Don't ask who Guybrush is. That would be a too obvious thing to do. And I agree with Lilly so let's get back on the suggested topic.

The PG-13 rating was for the trailer alone and the game might get a different rating as the official rating still is pending. MMOs usually aim for a broader audience and aim for a teen rating, thus aiming for an adult audience would have been announced early, since this would be something to set the game apart from the standard.

So I don't think we'll see a very high gore level, nor would I think it's necessary. All death and killing animations get boring after a while and excessive use of gore usually just tries to distract from that.

I'd rather see some well done, stunt like and special because seldom achieved fatal blows that don't repeat at every other mob's death. And that wouldn't need heads and limbs flying through the air or guts splattering and blood pouring on the ground to feel epic.

Sometimes, too much graphical violence can even turn out to be ridiculous. Great if you're watching Braindead, not so much if in a certain stealther bodies literally explode after a sneak attack.
