One of the main premises of ESO is to thwart Molag Bol's attmpt to pull Nirn into Coldharbor...however, an option is given in ESO to become a vampire and side with the vampires. Now, being as vampirism is a "gift" from Molag Bol to the realm of Mundas, as he was the one to bring about vampirism, and the original way to become a vampire lord is to have Molag Bol "bless" a mortal into aquiring such a gift, would that technically mean that by joining the vampires you are inadvertently joining sides with Molag Bol?

Just a fun little thought i had.

Unless he sees it as a blessing but you see it more as a curse?

It is a interesting question. But think of how much hate they would have received had they decided no vampires because of molag bal. I think ultimately it will come down to a person level of concern with role playing, and since sadly hardcore RPers are a minority and there really is no other easy way to address it, it will just be an interesting quirk in the game

The vampires might be seperated from actually aiding Molag Bal's pulling of Nirn into ColdHarbor. And aren't the anchors and this ColdHarbor isssue dealt with in the beginning of the game? Whereas you'll probably become a vampire after playing for awhile. So maybe the two shall not overlap.

I would expect that the main PvE storyline with Molag Bal will run to level 50 and the endgame. (What I don't remember reading from anywhere is whether Dark Anchors will be dropping in Cyrodiil? If not, then it could indicate that the storyline is over in the game's chronology at some point.)

They say in some of the E3 videos that the anchors drop everywhere, including Cyrodiil. So I'm guessing even after you get your souls back he is still trying to draw Nirn into Oblivion.

Thank you, I didn't recall that.

They do drop "everywhere" but I am pretty sure they have also said that the anchors will be in set places, and not be dropping at random locations

I was watching an interview with someone who was playing the beta, and they said they were running around exploring Cyrodiil when a dark anchor portal opened up in the middle of the region. They said that a plethora of players from each faction flocked to the dark anchors, and as soon as they realized that all three factions were present the whole thing broke out into a huge PvP battle until one faction was left standing to deatroy the anchor. From how it sounds, we may not even complete the story of defeating Molag Bal (got it right this time) until later content. Also, PvPing over the dark anchors sounds like fun, haha.

Just because you're a vampire doesn't mean you don't have your free will anymore. Even if you side with/become a vampire, I'm sure the vampire groups mostly aren't too happy with their world being sucked into Coldharbour and generally being under attack. So no, in no way would you be "siding with Molag Bal" as far as my personal logic goes.

And vampirism is more of a curse than a blessing, and for example lets see how the first vampire was created. Molag Bal was angry that Arkay was so proud that he was the god of Life and Death, so to mock him he entered Nirn and took a Nedic Virgin, Lamae Beolfag. And brutally raped her. She was found and nursed by nomads, whom she on the night slaughtered.... Anyhow you get the Point. Vampirism isnt meant to be a blessing, and Vigk Vagk you are right. Serana for example sided with vampire slayers in Dawnguard (if you chose the Dawnguards side...), because she didnt want every vampire dead. And I am sure that the vampires in Teso dont want the World to kind of end. + Most of their food would die then lol

This is my thoughts on the subject...
