Does ESO have social questing?

I have watched http://www.gamebreaker.tv/video-game-sho...wimmo-137/

And the idea i get is that the game is not social at all in the line of questing, the quest is phased for each specific person giving away the social group feeling. What are your thoughts on it?

They have explained, the phasing is merely so you can make your own choices.
One example was that in one quest you have a choice to kill or save a person, Person A chose to save him, Then helped Person B and killed him, later down the quest line the person came back to help Person A, because Person A saved them.

It doesn't really have much impact on your social or questing experience, there are some very nice details out there, however you quest will be far more social than other MMO's you don't even have to be grouped to help people with quests.

It is a lot more social than in games such as WoW, where somebody could steal your loot, or monster.
Plus the way the Mega server works, you should only really be playing with people who are playing for similar reasons to yourself.

It creates a more friendly social atmosphere.

I cannot explain it in great detail but its a good idea to trust that ZOS will do a good job, there is a reason they keep things quiet about whats in the game, because it allows them to change features to be better, stops things from being set in stone.

I don't like questing with other people or being social at all in the game lol. I think people put to much stock in community bonding through shared experiences.

So you can't do group quests? Or duo quest's like in Swtor? Because the Np's are also phased differently for each player.

You can do group quests as far as we are aware, Its something we don't know a great deal about, but they wont impair the game play by dodgy phasing.

Last year they talked about hopping to your friends phase to complete quests there with him. I am riddled how the whole thing works though.
