Hey guys. I am just wondering seeming as this is an MMORPG, me and a group of friends of mine will be questing etc together but there is one small question I have to ask. Most of us will be playing a different race from DC and the the question I have is, is it like Wow where every race within the faction starts off in their own zone or does everyone in the same faction start in the same place. The reason I ask this is because, we will want to try and keep the xp near enough the same all the way through so we can maximise this by being in the same starting zone.

-Thank you very much!

I don't think they've really said much about this yet.

Faction & Race:
Ebonheart Pact
From what we've seen from people who have previewed the demos and had hands-on experiences; there's likely to be a single starting zone for each of factions. Recently, all Daggerfall Covenant players, no matter the race, have been shown to begin on Stros M'kai after the introduction sequence.

Spoilers on where the game truly starts:
The introduction sequence or technically first starting point being Coldharbour.

But whether the people chose to be a breton, redguard, or orc; they all started up in the same place and they haven't made any sign that this will change. The lore based idea is that everyone is in the same bad situation in the beginning then are thrown out into the ocean where they end up on the isle Stros M'kai. So this is how they gather everyone in a faction on the same path.

Early previews have the Ebonheart Pact start on Bleakrock Isle.

You could check out any of the hands-on previews done and they all talk about the same experience.

I'm not sure if coldharbour is going to be a solo start or if you can group up in there, but I'm pretty sure everyone in the same faction starts in the same place. Probably just makes it easier for them to develop the main story.

I think you start in the same place cause I hear that you start where they take your soul. But if they have different start zone we have horse.
