    You guys talking about NDA and Beta invites is making my thirst grow stronger. It's almost the end of the month...Although until PAX East ends I don't expect any invites to go out. (I wonder if PAX already happened?) I'd say from March 23+ would be considered the end of March sooooooo.

    Counting them days@@

Everyone knows reading lore books while standing in a room full of enemies is pretty hard core.

    The achievement's name better be what Genn said: "Knowledge is FUS RO DAH!"

    In WoW i didnt really care for most Achievements, but i really could see them work in ESO, since youre supposed to explore the world anyway.

    "The only persistent on-screen items are a crosshair, a minimap, and a small quest tracker"

    HMM. SOUNDS LIKE AIMING TO ME.

    I guess TESO will be getting some of my money.

    most interesting thing i got from that was the new game plus. My question is what will the quests be like for someone not of the native faction and will different factions be able to see each other? im guessing they are gonna be using a ton of phasing tech for this game. Might be that all new game plus toons get phased to their own replica zone so u cant see the lower levels and then it may phase out the different factions from each zone.

    Seems interesting, wonder what other ppl think about this.

    Phasing is a double edged sword. While it can help immersion story wise, it can make the world feel more empty.
    We shall see.

    When is beta launching? blarg.
    I am actually kinda hyped now that I've seen the word "cross hair" used.

    cross hair?

    anyway, beta invites should be going out end of March. but its probably very unlikely you would get an invite in the first wave :P
    Too cool for a signature

    Yeah, in the article they linked twice they talk about the UI being limited to like minimap and cross hair ect. Cross hair strongly implies that this is going to be an ARPG with aiming like Tera.

    And while I probably won't get into the beta right away... The amount of info that leaks from a triple A mmo beta is extreme.
    I like info.

    Another preview. Sounds like it has some good ideas, im also pleased to see that you can eventually visit the entire map on a single character (not been keeping up with this thread too much so dont know when this got announced). Im not sure if its enough for me to play it though, i finished playing wow a few months ago and havent had any urge to go back, im not sure if this is different enough to get me excited about mmos again.

    You can play through every zone on a single character, regardless of faction. There’s a reason why few MMOs bother with three factions nowadays – it’s a vast amount of content to create, particularly when you’re only likely to see a third of it. TESO’s solution is clever. You’ll level from 1-50 and do your personal story with your chosen faction, then when you’re finished you can pick a second faction to play through in what amounts to a new game plus. Zones and encounters are buffed to 50 and loot updated accordingly. Then, when you finish that you’ll be able to play through the final faction in an even tougher mode. You’ll still only be able to group and socialise with members of your own faction, but it means you don’t have to pick what race you play based solely on what zones you want to adventure in. Your Breton will get to wander around Skyrim.

    Another plus to this, when they make a new chunk of solo content (expansion) it will count three times over since people will be able to play through each factions chunk of content.

    Much easier for them to justify solo content when 100% of their players have access to it.

    The only bad part is that they're being pretty clear that factions won't be able to cross into each other's territory, meaning no world PvP. But still, this is a step in the right direction.

    There might be contested zones that aren't considered a factions "territory".
    Boarder conflicts.

    Idk. If we complain enough they might add it in beta or post launch.

    I laughed because it's a funny thing to say, but it's nice that they actually do listen to feedback.

    the people posting are breaking it, and you end up getting fake info from the people other companies pay to slander new competition
