This topic is directly related to an article,
and it is highly suggested that you read it before posting!

PAX East Event!

A livestream event will be taking place on
Friday, March 22nd from 9:00pm to 11:00pm EDT
where information related to The Elder Scrolls Online will be released.

What information will be released?
YOU DECIDE!

Leave all of your questions here and I'll make sure to ask the developers present at PAX East as many of them as possible, and share all of my answers with you! I'll also be monitoring this thread to see if there are any questions I can answer immediately in the next 24 hours.

There are a few things that I would GREATLY APPRECIATE if you did to help me when you posted, including:
  • Bullet your questions!
    If you plan on asking more than one question, please bullet them to make it easier for me to read!
  • Read other posts!
    There's a chance that someone may have already asked your question, or you may get an idea for your own question from reading others!
  • Spelling and Grammar!
    if i's cant reed ur qwestiun, i cand andwerr it!
    Well-written questions are more likely to be used (longer is lot always better), and I will give credit to the individual who asks it!

Seeing how with the last information released some people have been voicing there opinions on classes and raids. So some possible questions arise.
  • How many classes does ZOS plan to have released at the launch of the game?
    - If there are only 4 classes, how broad will the class abilities/skills be? Will they satisfy every type of player playing that class?

  • Does ZOS have any intentions or plans of introducing raids after launch, maybe in expansions?

  • They say you get better gear once you enter the next factions territory, and get the best gear when you are in the last factions territory. Besides crafting (assuming you can craft the best items), is there any other way to obtain gear equally as good? For the people that don't wish to go to other factions territory because it may seem to be against the lore.

  • What are the benefits of becoming an emperor? Will you have responsibilities that you must do? What will keep players wanting to continue to be emperor and fight to become emperor after the game has been out for a while?

  • Will Cyrodiil has any sort of resets every couple months?

Thanks Terminus!

I have a few questions, Winking_grinning
  • Will crafting be the "you push a button to craft something variety", or will it be in the mini game variety.

  • Will there be level requirements for all the weapons and gear?

  • Is there really no pick pocketing?
    How about Lock picking?

  • will there be mobs and npcs in the pvp zone / cyrodiil?

  • If a person starts pvping as soon as they hit lvl 10 when TESO releases, will there be quests they can do in cyrodiil, and could that 1 person take a keep or fort alone? what would stop them from doing this?


that's my short list. Winking_grinning

So many questions.

Ok first the one for you, that you can check out in the game:


- How deep is the customizations on the more bestial races (Argonians, Khajiit, Ork)
Do they get the same attention as the human ones? This is a major issue in a number of other games.

- Are the races lore apropriate?
As in. Do Dunmer have proper red eyes? Because i have my concerns there.

- Is there a gut slider for women? or just a boob slider?

- Any sight of the *Weird* armor styles. by that i mean Bonemold, Chitin and Dreugh armor.
What armor styles can you spot of races we havent seen yet (Bosmer, Khajiit, Argonian)
Are they lore apropriate? (as in bone and leather armor exclusiveley for bosmer)

- How is collision handled in Combat? is there any?

- Do Two handet weapons hit more than one target with one swing?

- How are the Racial skill lines handled? Are they cosmetic only or are they actually any usefull?
Could this create potential imbalance?

- Is there any restriction for active dodging?
By that i mean can you always dodge when you have the required stamina or is there a cooldown like there is in GW2?



So here a few Questions for the Devs:

- What about the Creatures that weve heard about but not seen yet. we know Wamasu are in, but what about stuff like the Naga? Will we see King Dead-Wolf-Deer?

- Will Stormhold be anyhting like the previous descriptions? (as in constantly engulfed in a storm and built on stilts)

- With wayshrines confirmed as fast travel to places youve been already, what about traditional (priced) fast travel to new location? Will there be stilt striders, carriages and rootworms?


- Clarification on the issue on Bosmer Cannibalism: Is it realy not there? Why isnt it a racial ability like the undead have in WoW?

- Cyrodiil: will we see a difference between Colovian and Nibenese folk?
Now that we have all the Provinces in the game will Cyrodiil be more influenced by the bordering provinces?
In Oblivion it all kinda looked the same. But in ESO it would feel awkward if youd be next to morrowind and it would look nothing like that.
Considering that even in skyrim we got alot of Volcanic activity around the border.

- Since there are both Catapults and Trebuchets does this mean that we can actually move Catapults around after they are built? or are they pureley stationary?

- Will the "Faction change" after max level have any impact on your previous faction? Will you "Betray" your faction?
Will the zone be portrayed as a "conquered" zone?
one of the interviews stated that this way you could play with People of another Faction. When another one claimed that this would zone you only with people from your previouos faction that took the same choice as you did.
So wich statement is correct?
Is there any justification for the mobs to be higher level? Do you start in the same lowly position as a player of that faction?

- Will Avoidance be a valid strategy?
By that i mean beeing "tanky" not by having alot of HP but by dodging and blocking incoming attacks.



to be continued... ill find more. trust me.

Not Set
• How many characters will be allowed on each account?

• Will we be allowed to create alts in each of the different factions so we can explore the other areas (before level cap)?

• Will there be any kind of storage system? (or is there a weight limit to how much can be carried)

• I understand there won’t be a housing system in place at launch – how soon will that be in coming?

- also - will there be a cosmetic system? If not, can we at least hide helmets/cloaks? (no point in choosing a nice hairstyle if it is always covered)

Thanks

- We dont know yet, they will likely reveal this closer to release date.

- Yes you can creat alts, and after lvl 50 you can explore and quest in other Factions.

- There is no Weight limit, there will be standard MMO stackable inventory, we dont know yet how if we can or will be able to increas inventory size.

- They dont know, or wont tell you that. It can be hard to imagine but implementing a GOOD housing system is hard work.

Eddit: Ups sorry i answered this some questions without reading post, where you clearly stated that you would do it in 24h.



I hope you forgive me for my blunder but i also haw few questions i am desperate looking for answers:

- Why are we Class lock to single character? Why cent we pick and level different classes, one at a time, on single character? like you plan to do with Armor and Weapon skill tree. (This is for Devs.)

- Will there be mini games a player can enjoy when he is waiting for friends or just wants to pass some time when chating with guild. A good example a Dice game, Or some sort of Dwemer Mini game, or bather yet a Vanity spell that lets you play mini game on the ground.

- Will player be able to Create Buy Sell or Trade/gift his own Furniture when you release Housing?

- Will there be more plains of Oblivion we can visit other then Coldharbour. If yes i there in any way possible to implement Random Dungeon Generator, where group of friends would just explore without knowing map layout or where is boss and loot and eventually advance in difficulty with every new dungeon level, at the end they would get there End Score that can be used to compete on Global Stage. (i know this is hard question to ask, but if you will get the chance)

- Is there any Information on "Arena" types of PvP combat.

Just spoke to Ewan about this in Thuumbox, so here is one that has been troubling us:

Are there multiple ways of progressing skill lines?

Originally they were supposed to evolve with usage, now the Skyshards are being incorporated

Weapons & Armor: Progress with usage
Class & Racial: Unlocked with Skyshards
Guilds and Vampirism: Progress with faction gain
PvP: Progress with.... well....pvp (tho I know its not yet implemented)


I would appreciate if anyone can verify this

Debating with someone on the Internet is like mudwrestling with a pig. You get filthy and the pig loves it

Ewan, if you answer a question someone posts with "We dont know yet" anywhere in your response, then refrain from answering it lol.

Yes. Your alts will not be able to compete in the same campaign in Cyrodiil as your other characters though.

Quote:How about Lock picking?
Yes, there will be lock picking and it will be similar to ESO lock picking.

Quote:Will the "Faction change" after max level have any impact on your previous faction? Will you "Betray" your faction?
No, it will not affect anything to do with your faction. You will still have loyalty to your faction and can only fight for your faction in Cyrodiil.

- What benefits will we gain from attacking from sneak? Will it be the standard extra damage from previous TES games or will we have access to sneak based attacks through weapon trees?

- Will there be stamina and magicka regen enchants?

- Will there be proc based damage enchants (ie fire damage on hit) and if so will we have to recharge them with soul shards?

- Are the EU and NA megaservers going to be completely separate or is it possible that will be phased together?

- We need more information on the Dark Brotherhood and Thieves guild, will they function like the Mages guild and Fighters guild in that they give you a skill tree?

- How will you accommodate for latency discrepancies in combat?

I dont know if this will help but, here it is:
You unlock new Skill points when you level up, find 3 Sky Shards, and other ways around the world.
With Skill points you chose Abilities and Spells in Your Skill Tree.
When you use Those Abilities and Spells they will level up, and at 4th lvl (or was it 5th lvl not sure) You will be able to "morph" those abilities/spells giving them new property like say less initial damage and more over time damage, or AOE damage, or stun, etc.
You cent Re-speck abilities and spells that you haw chosen with Skill points, BUT you can re-speck your Health Stamina and Magica also you can change your "morph" properties as well. So chose wisely, but at the end if you truly dedicate to your character you will be able to get all Spells and ability's, since you wont stop getting Skill points at lvl 50, there will always be a way for you to get them.

If you already knew this sorry for spam : /.
You did make good points though so far they only mentioned that you get Skill Points by lvl your character, they dint say anything about weapon and Armor leveling system.

That is why these are questions for Terminus to ask ZOS at Pax. To get information on things we don't know atm but wish to know.
