I just want to know what game activities and functions you are not using.

I am not fishing. Its broken for me and tech support is working on a fix. Worked fine in beta.

I rarely use emotes. One time after a tough group dungeon we all did a little happy dance but that's it.

I'm not sprinting. Well sometimes but rarely. Not mapped on my gamepad and ms windows doesn't like it when I hold down the shift key. Also I cant afford the stamina.

I hardly do anything social at all. I don't use chat much. I don't send whispers. I only use mail for buying and selling from guild stores. I've grouped a few times and liked it but it has just been when it was necessary or someone invited me and I wasn't in the middle of something.

Im not using 1st person. Im used to changing between 1st and 3rd and zooming in and out on my char but it seems easier to stay in 3rd at a fixed zoom in this game.

im not using weapon swap. I could see how it would be helpful for more flexible builds but so far my char are very focused.

What aren't you doing?

i dont use emotes because i havent memorized all of them yet - but i will.

i dont dodge roll - it eats too much stamina - they really should have made this a separate resource.

i feel like im doing everything else the game offers though

Hmm...

I DO use Emotes... I'm remembering them as much as I can but I just tend to /lute and have a bard session with my friends...

I DON'T fish... Just haven't tried... No game has ever made fishing interesting for me... I hope I'll try it someday...

I DON'T dodge... No point and not enough ability to multi-task from myself...

I DON'T block... ^ Pretty much that ^

I'm tired so I won't write more...

I'm not using first person, the narrow field of view makes me nauseous. Prefer 3rd person anyway since I can see what's behind me 8V

I don't dodge... that mechanic drains far too much stamina and is useless because of latency.

I don't fish either, don't really see the point when I can find provisioning items way faster in barrels/sacks etc

no emotes
no fishing due to lack of bag space

I have blocked zone chat due to spammers

I rarely resurrect anyone unless I am grouped with them or they helped me in a fight.

I tried ganking players once and it was fun. I had a good laugh when the guy I was fighting managed to kill me at the same time I killed him.

I prefer questing despite the chuckle.

I no longer play in 1st person because I can't see the fight ques of my opponent which is especially deadly when wearing light armor.

I haven't paid much attention to the lore books. I have a feeling as I level I am going to have to revisit that issue soon and start back tracking for any I missed like I have been doing currently with the skyshards.

I haven't done any trading with other players. I just been leveling and researching crafting. Right now none of my alts are skilled enough to make anything of any real value.

I don't play because I'm currently poor and swamped with college work.

Would you mind elaborating about that? I don't know what you are talking about.

I can see a red zone on the ground but I can't tell if it is a circle or a cone or parallel charge type lines in first person view. Without that knowledge I have no clue which way to dodge and light armor character die quickly if they stand in the red zone for too long. I really had to perfect dodging when I made a templar with light armor because she doesn't have a pet like my sorceress to keep the mobs off her. My heavy armor character uses a shield so doesn't dodge just blocks and my Nightblade relies on stealth and a quick kill to keep from getting too damaged so dodge is only moderately helpful for my sorceress and extremely helpful for my templar both of which are light armor characters.

Not using 1st person - which surprises me since I'm a long-time action/immersion player and have always preferred 1st person. I think 3rd person makes up for the lack of peripheral vision, so now 1st person feels like tunnel vision...

No Group Content - mainly due PUG angst... :)

Tried Alchemy but quit - too many other crafting options, not enough skill points

No Cyrodill (yet) - Don't want to out-level PVE content.

Don't Dodge - agree with others, it uses too much stamina (and as a melee DPS that's significant). Plus I can usually just step out of the way.

Rarely Use Pots other than Health - Due to huge timeout, have to prioritize staying alive. My regen rates are usually good enough for stamina/magika, especially now that I can stun mobs for 10+ seconds with petrify skill.

No Fishing - boring

I fish up until about Lv 6 just to get some $$. Takes a long time, but your alternatives for $$ are so limited before you get several recipes.
