    never understood why blizzard removed it, it barely gets dark at night now, its horrible theres not much difference between stormwind in the day, and stormwind at night i dont think TESO will be as dark as skyrim was at night and in caves, but im hoping that going into a cave, actually feels like a cave and night to actually been meaning ful. i dont think a day / night cycle in game should follow our 24hour clock though, its a bit unfair to people who can only play at night, should make it a 4hour clock or so. would love that.

    I think the night time in WoW should be a little darker. Don't make it dark to the point you can't see, but just lower the lighting a little.
    I cried alone every single night. It felt like every day that passed here stole another piece of my real life away. After i cried, I’d go and fight as hard as I could. My only thought was winning, moving forward, and getting stronger. — Asuna Yuuki

    They "removed" (they made nights bright) it because with all the time zones there was a lot of people who always played at Server Time Night. That wasn't cool.

    Why remove it? Why not put in shorter cycles? Day/Night cycles were a feature in Warcraft and they just scrubbed it away.

    Would be interesting if mob behavior changed during Day/Night cycles. Wolves hunting during the night or certain mobs changing tactics if it's night or day. Example being a couple of bandits might outright attack you in the day or they may quietly set a trap before the encounter and ambush you during the night. Night and Day cycles could be a really nice addition to the smart mob UI if TESO plays their cards right.

    On another note...This game better have cloaks! Also hope there's no NPC's like Nazeem...would drive me crazy in not being able to kill them lol

    Currently playing a game called Dragon's Dogma and the night cycle is kinda cool. The more dangerous monsters come out and your vision is obscured by the darkness, so you have to use a lantern. If you get drenched your lantern will go out and you have to move through the darkness until you dry. Some of the traveling merchants sell better goods during the night as well. I know a lot of people would get pissed if they added that in ESO, but I like that kind of realism.

    So PvP in this game will resemble DAoC somewhat, enemy* players can't enter your home territories at all and to PvP you need to get your behind out in "emain macha" and get CC-rolled by the hibs as it were. I can dig that.

    Wonderful! The Lusty Argonian Maid volumes have made it into ESO!

    (It's little things like this that tell me we're in for a good game!)

    wait a second.... how the hell will those books be in the game? like... the guy that wrote them was alive at the time of morrowind O.o

    i detect some daedra tomfoolery.

    Something that is in big debate on every single forum I've seen as of late is the life expectancy of the different races of Tamriel for roleplaying purposes. Can you please elaborate and give us some numbers to work with for each race or at least the Elven races (Altmer, Bosmer, and Dunmer)? – By Nathan Payne / Andrew Hudson

    Elves live two to three times as long as humans and the “beast-races” (Orcs, Khajiiti, Argonians). A 200-year-old Elf is old; a 300-year-old Elf is very, very old indeed. Anyone older than that has prolonged his or her lifespan through powerful magic.
    Something that is in big debate on every single forum I've seen as of late is the life expectancy of the different races of Tamriel for roleplaying purposes
    So what I infer from that is that other forums are useless.

    Will there be some puzzles that require us to move around blocks to open up something? Will there be puzzles at all? – By Libor Held

    Absolutely!
    Seriously? Isn't this present in nearly every RPG that gets released nowadays or in the past dozen years? Why would you even ask this question. I don't understand people.

    My Cracked articles, writing blog, and Twitter.

    The problem with the internet is parallel to its greatest achievement: it has given the little man an outlet where he can be heard. Most of the time however, the little man is a little man because he is not worth hearing.

    that doesn't seem right. 200 years old would be old for a dunmer, maybe a bosmer, but altmer live a lot longer than that. i'd put 600 as being old for an altmer.

    My guess is the Lusty Argonian Maid books are somewhat of an Easter Egg for ESO.

    There's a lot of RPGs that don't have puzzles. WoW has some obstacle courses, but doesn't really have any puzzles. (I'm not bashing WoW. Begone creatures of the night!)

    Exactly what kind of puzzles are we talking about?

    The kind that existed in resident evil 1 and 2 ?
    Because that would be awesome.
